Amsterdam projects Mahsa Amini’s image on Eye film museum building
This week, Amsterdam projects the image of Masha Amini on the EYE film museum building to express support for the women in Iran fighting for their freedom.
“Our city is in solidarity with the women in Iran and all other women who fight for their freedom and equal rights,” the municipality said on Twitter.
Masha Amini, 22, died earlier this month due to alleged police violence. She was arrested by the morality police in Tehran on September 13 for wearing her hijab incorrectly or “unsuitable attire.” She died in hospital three days later after falling into a coma.
The young woman’s death sparked massive protests throughout the strict-Islamic country. Protesters have also flooded the streets in many other countries to show solidarity with the women in Iran. Social media flooded with footage of women burning their hijabs and cutting their hair.
According to Reuters, at least 41 people have died in clashes between demonstrators and Iran’s security forces. An estimated 898 people have sustained non-fatal injuries.
