Thousands of protesters gathered on Trafalgar Square in London to demonstrate for women's rights and against the authoritarian regime in Iran
Thousands of protesters gathered on Trafalgar Square in London to demonstrate for women's rights and against the authoritarian regime in Iran as rallies spread around the world for the second week in support of growing unrest triggered by the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22 year old woman who died after being brutally beaten by the Iranian morality police for the way she wore her hijab. Protests have since erupted across Iran where security forces have killed dozens of protesters and casualties are on their side to. In London, speakers from both royalist and republican sides called for unity in fight against the Islamic regime of Iran and for women's rights in their home country. Female protesters took the lead and at one point one even told off a man who tried to organize her talk saying "this is a women's revolution". As during the previous demonstrations, several women publicly cut their hair in a symbol of defiance of the authoritarian regime. Crowds were chanting Mahsa Amini's name and "Woman, Life, Freedom", which has become the slogan of the movement.
