Rallies in France in support of Iran protestors

More than 1000 people have rallied in the French city of Lyon to show support for anti-regime protests in Iran.

The demonstrators passed through the streets of the city carrying a banner that read “Woman, life, freedom” and chanting the words, which have become the slogan of the protests.

A protester Sholeh Golrokhi said, “I am here to demand freedom in Iran. When I was little, they arrested all of my family.”

“We are here to ask Western countries to be the voice of our people and expel Iranian ambassadors,” another protestor said.

According to French media, many protestors had a personal connection with Iran.

Protests in Iran got underway following the death of Kurdish-Iranian Mahsa Amini, 22 in custody on September 16, 2022.

The morality police, who uphold a rigid dress code that requires women to cover their necks and hair with a scarf-like covering, detained her for not wearing modest clothes.
