Die Redaktion von Sozial.Geschichte Online unterstützt die Solidarität für die Aufstände im Iran, wie sie sich neben zahlreichen Demonstrationen in der Bundesrepublik und vielen anderen Ländern auch in einer Petition von Wissenschaftler:innen finden: „On 16 September, Mahsa (Zhina) Amini, a 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian woman, was brutally murdered by the morality police of the Islamic Republic of Iran. She was beaten several times on the head after her arrest for wearing so-called ‘improper’ hijab. This was among many other state murders committed systemically and purposefully by the gender-apartheid regime of Iran. Since this state murder, people have been protesting in many cities in Iran. This country-wide revolt is against not only the brutal murder of Mahsa but also the essence of the Islamic regime. The demand is loud and clear: an end to a theocratic regime whose multi-faceted violence against marginalized bodies is manifested in Mahsa’s death. In the face of terror and repression, we are witnessing a feminist revolution in Iran ignited by rage at the murder of Mahsa (Zhina) Amini.“ Zum vollständigen Text.
