For over two months, Iranians have been demonstrating for legal and social rights following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini. Women and young people are at the forefront of the movement that has spread across the country. In the face of the regime’s brutal crackdown, human rights advocates stress the need for solidarity with Iranians:

World solidarity with the Iranian people is of the utmost importance right now. Girls are down there putting their lives at stake. They are fighting for their own lives, for hope, for democracy in Iran but they are also fighting for your democracy so don’t forget them. This is very important. – Ladan Boroumand
