Germany: ‘Woman, life, freedom’ – Hundreds rally in Berlin in solidarity with anti-government protesters in Iran

Hundreds of activists have marched in Berlin on Saturday afternoon in solidarity with anti-government demonstrators in Iran, demanding to stop human rights violations in the country.

More than 150 members of the Iranian diaspora and their allies gathred in front of the Brandenburg Gate and marched loud through the governmental district of the German capital.

Participants of the rally could be seen carrying flags of Iran and posters reading “Woman, life, freedom” and “The mass murderer is now the President Ebrahim Raisi, the hangman”. The demonstrators were also chanting “Out, out, out! The Mullahs must leave!”, “Freedom to Iran” and “Down the Islamic republic”, urging for democratic changes in the middleeaster country and for the end of rule of Islamic clerics.

The demo was originally registered for 5,000 participants. Police escorted the protesters along their route.

The recent powerful wave of protests erupted in Tehran and other Iranian cities in September after the death of 22 y.o Mahsa Amini, who had been arrested by the morality police for allegedly breaking strict hijab rules and then fell into a coma and later died in hospital.

Iranian authorities denied any mistreat towards Amini when in custody, charging the country’s foreign enemies with directing the demonstrations and violence in the streets.
