Protesters march down Michigan Avenue to show support for protesters in Iran


CHICAGO (SCS) — For the second day in a row, protesters hit Michigan Avenue to show solidarity with the ongoing protests in Iran.

Protesters denounce the murder of Mahsa Amini, 22, who died after being arrested by the country’s vice police for allegedly wearing her hijab incorrectly.

Iranian officials say she died of a heart attack, but her family said she was beaten to death in custody.

His death sparked deadly protests in Tehran as well as demonstrations in at least 40 US cities.

Protesters say they shouldn’t have to beg for human rights.

“Everyone is outraged. Everyone is so mad at the government that there is a mandatory hijab law that most people don’t want. And I think now everyone is together. They know what they want, and they work together for the same goal,” said Soroosh Azizi, and Iranian protester.

This is the third protest in Chicago this week calling for justice in Iran.
