Iran students protest over crackdown since Mahsa Amini death as demos spread to cities worldwide

Telegraph, 01 Oct 2022
Students demonstrated in Tehran and other Iranian cities on Saturday against an ongoing crackdown on dissent over the death last month of Mahsa Amini in the custody of the Islamic republic's notorious morality police.

Iranians based abroad and their supporters gathered in cities around the world in solidarity.

A wave of street violence has rocked Iran since Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian Kurd, died after her arrest by the morality police for allegedly failing to observe the Islamic republic's strict dress code for women.

Demonstrations of support were called in 159 cities across the globe – from Auckland to New York and Seoul to Zurich, the Iranians for Justice and Human Rights group said.
