Protest Against Iran’s Regime Held in London’s Trafalgar Square

A protest against Iran’s regime was held in London’s Trafalgar Square on Sept. 24, following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. Amini was detained in Iran by the country’s morality police for failing to observe the country’s dress code for women, and, protestors believe, killed by police while in custody.

The young woman’s death sparked anti-government and anti-regime protests which spread to almost every province in Iran. Responding to the protests, Iran’s government approved a brutal crackdown on protestors, leaving at least 35 people dead and more than 450 people injured. Tehran also imposed an almost complete internet shutdown, leaving Iranians in the country without access to mobile networks and social media platforms.
