One Law for All is organising a protest dance against executions and in solidarity with the women’s revolution in Iran on Saturday 17 December, 1:00-2:00pm at Piccadilly Circus.
The protest dance will be rehearsed from 11:30am-1:00pm. Everyone, including passers-by, will be invited to join in. Protestors, with nooses around their necks and as face painting, will dance to Shelley Segal’s cover of Baraye in English. Shervin Hajipour’s Baraye has become the anthem of the revolution. The dance will be led by Faranak Heidari.
Protestors will also have with them photos of those executed or at risk of execution for demanding freedom and an end to theocracy since the murder of Mahsa Amini on 16 September.
Speakers at the action include Comedian and Women’s Rights Activist Kate Smurthwaite, One Law for All Spokesperson Maryam Namazie, Body Artist Victoria Gugenheim and Faithless Hijabi Founder Zara Kay, amongst others. The Woman, Life, Freedom group will perform protest songs at the action too.
