The Beginning - Jina Mahsa Amini
Jina-Mahsa Amini was a 22-year-old Kurdish girl who was arrested by the morality police, and beaten to death for the crime of improper hijab.
The reporter who broke her story and the physician who refused to lie about her cause of death, are both imprisoned and face multiple charges.
This could have happened to any one of us girls who are here today, many arrested or cited multiple times by morality police for the crime of improper hijab.
The death of this innocent soul was the birth of the current revolution. It did not happen overnight, it came after a century of oppression, 100 years of struggle for freedom.
Many lives sacrificed, many dreams crushed, many families separated, and many voices silenced.
The fight is not about hijab, nor about religion, it is about:
“Jan, Jian, azadi”
“Zan zendegi Azadi”
“Women life freedom” "
