HELP THE CAMPAIGN TO DEMAND AN END TO THIS CRISIS
Right now, there is a crisis of impunity in Iran. Hundreds of protesters are being killed, tortured, and ill-treated for peacefully protesting for women’s rights. A gift to Amnesty International UK could help fund investigations into human rights abuses, and ensure accountability for the most serious crimes committed under international law, including crimes against Mahsa Amini.
The anger expressed on the streets after the death of Mahsa Amini has shown how many Iranian people, and people around the world, feel about the so-called morality police who enforce Iran’s discriminatory forced veiling laws. The response of the security forces has been to violently quash largely peaceful protests in Iran.
At Amnesty International we have already gathered evidence of violence in over 20 cities and 10 provinces across Iran that points to a harrowing pattern of Iranian security forces deliberately and unlawfully firing live ammunition at protesters.
Please give today to help ensure that Iranian authorities are held accountable for their actions.
