During protests in response to the death of Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, Iran’s authorities have used violence, killing dozens, with impunity. Now, they are using the death penalty as a tool of political repression against a generation of courageous protesters.

Recent unrest follows decades of human rights violations in Iran. On the ground, Iranian people are calling for: Zan, Zendegi, Azadi (Woman, Life, Freedom)- a global rallying cry in the face of brutal repression.
