Freedom For Iran (ENG)

Freedom For Iran (ENG)

After the brutal death of Mahsa Amini, the Iranian people have been fighting and risking their lives in the streets of Iran for almost three months. The Islamic Republic is trying to brutally suppress this call for freedom by killing people in the streets and executing prisoners. Still, protests in Iran are not slowing down. In fact, it’s turning into a women’s revolution.
This evening we zoom in on the lives of women in Iran during these protests, but also under the regime of Islamic Republic in general. We listen to personal stories from women of 3 different generations to understand how their fight was carried from generation upon generation, which results in ‘Woman, Life, Freedom’. We wil also watch video-letters of Iranian women in which they talk about their experience living in Iran at the moment.
The evening is accompanied and guided by beautiful music and wraps up with an opportunity to ask questions and talk about the matter at hand.

This event is developed by Niloofar Azimian.
