Solidarity with the women of Iran in their fight for freedom, choice and bodily autonomy.. rights which are increasingly under threat the world over. We hear you, we stand with you. #MahsaAmini 📸: @johnbehets
… WE NEED YOUR HELP! Iran’s security forces continue to shoot and kill protesters — including women and children — while shutting down internet access so they can’t organize or communicate with the world.
The global outpouring of rage and empathy over the death in custody of #MahsaAmini must be followed by concrete steps by the international community to tackle the crisis of systemic impunity that has allowed widespread torture, extrajudicial executions and other unlawful killings by Iranian authorities to continue unabated both behind prison walls and during protests.
It is vital to put pressure on states to urgently support calls for the establishment of an independent international investigative and accountability mechanism to address the prevailing crisis of impunity in Iran, which Amnesty International has been calling for since the aftermath of the November 2019 protests. And to demand that your officials show support for the Iranian people and condemn their oppressors. It isn’t the Islamic Republic of Iran, it’s the Islamic Republic vs. Iran and it’s time for world leaders and all of us to be on the right side of this and not let the IRI slaughter hundreds of protesters and squash this uprising as they did in 2019.

To help people in Iran get internet access we can use Tor Project Snowflake, a technique apps can use to circumvent censorship, run by volunteers. Or with Google’s Outline VPN, people outside Iran can easily and cheaply set up VPN servers and share access with communities in Iran, enabling them to participate in the global Internet. Please also donate to and support @tooshehapp
, an app that Iranians can download to circumvent censorship.
