Demonstrator Cuts Hair in Madrid to Protest Iranian Woman’s Death.

An emotional 32-year-old Iranian living in Madrid cut her hair, October 1, 2022, in support of Iranian women, and to condemn the death of Mahsa Amini.

Singing Iranian songs and holding signs in support of women, dozens of protesters demanded freedom for their countrymen and women.

Men who also joined the women’s protest said they had been unable to contact their families in Iran after the internet had been taken down in some places.

Amini died after being arrested in Tehran by police enforcing the Islamic Republic's strict restrictions on women's dress. Her death has sparked Iran's biggest unrest since 2019.
