Thousands of protesters have gathered in London to protest against the Iranian government’s crackdown on women and girls who do not comply with the country’s strict dress code.
Marching from Trafalgar Square to Parliament Square, they held banners condemning the Iranian government and chanted slogans denouncing Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei.
Sisters Arzoo and Nina told Sky News they are protesting to give the Iranian people a voice.
“We want to see the regime disappear,” Arzoo said. We want freedom for Iran.
When asked if they believe change is possible, she replied: “Yes, we do. If people want to make a difference, this is the only time and opportunity. The last we have.
“A lot of celebrities and MPs are talking about it, so these protests are making a difference.”
Amini was detained for allegedly violating the country’s strict dress code.
More than 150 people have been killed in widespread unrest in Iran since mid-September, according to the Norway-based Iranian NGO Human Rights.
Another protester, Mahnaz, showed Sky News her palm was painted red to represent blood.
“My hands are painted because there is blood on the street. The Iranian regime is killing our children, they bang their heads on the floor. Moral police are very dangerous,” she said.
“We don’t want this regime in Iran. We are going to have a revolution.”
Protester Parsa Sadigh told Sky News he hoped other governments would step in to impose tough sanctions on Iran.
“We need all the help we can to change the regime that has negatively affected people for over 40 years, so that we can restore Iran to the way it is.”
