Several hundred people drew attention to the situation in Iran on Saturday in Hanover. The unrest there was triggered by the death of Mahsa Amani (22), who is said to have been killed by the vice squad. The demonstrators at Ernst-August-Platz called for solidarity.
Hanover. They are angry, frustrated and loud: Around 350 people protested against the mullahs’ regime in Iran on Saturday in Hanover. The reason is the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amani. The religious police are said to have taken her away on Tuesday because of her “un-Islamic” outfits without a head covering (hijab). and killed by beatings in custody. She was initially in a coma but died in a hospital on Friday. Since then there have been protests across the country that have been bloodily suppressed. Solidarity demos are also taking place around the world.
And there are significantly more than expected – on the Ernst-August-Platz the organizers only counted on a two-digit number. “Everyone is highly emotional,” said Ferdos Mirabadi from the Kargah Association and the Forum of Iranian Democrats and Socialists in Hanover on Saturday. “There are more and more, they want to let their frustration and anger out.” The approximately 350 protesters show photos of those imprisoned and killed, and they also shouted slogans like “Woman. Life. Freedom” or “Away! Path! Path! Mullah has to go!”.
