Protest against Iranian regime’s practices against women


A group of feminist activists organized this Sunday afternoon outside National Museum in capital Beirut a protest under the title “Feminists for Jenna” (Mahsa Amini), in support and solidarity with feminism activists in Iran. This protest coincides with others across the world including Istanbul, Stockholm, Berlin, Paris, Toronto, Montreal, New York, Vancouver, and Rotterdam, against the practices of Iranian regime against women and its suppression of freedoms. Protesters chanted slogans, including: “It is not about the veil, it is about the oppression and tyranny,” “Our revolution is for feminism,” and “Freedom is freedom.” Mahsa Amini died of torture after she was arrested by Iranian “moral police” on September 16, due to her “inappropriately” wearing hijab, which sparked protests across Iran.
