All eyes are on Iran. The brutal death in custody of Jîna Masha Amini has sparked nationwide protests across all parts of Iranian society. The protesters do not focus exclusively on women's rights anymore but demand freedom for all Iranians and a regime change. The regime has reacted brutally with arrests and killings. The Centre for Feminist Foreign policy has organised an event to articulate clear and actionable demands for the German government and the international community.
"Woman, Life, Freedom" is the now globally known slogan of the fight for freedom on Iranian streets. The slogan is based in the Kurdish feminist movement, proving the feminist nature and demands of the protests. Since the brutal death in custody of Jîna Mahsa Amini on September 16, the protests on the streets do not subside. The Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy (CFPP) organised a high-level event, joined by minister Baerbock, to articulate clear and actionable demands for the German government and the international community.
Jîna Mahsa Amini was arrested by the Iranian "morality police" in Tehran for not wearing her hijab correctly, thereby violating the Islamic Republic’s conservative dress code. Despite houndreds of killings and arrests and the censoring of internet the protests continue. They are not a "women's issue". Iranians from all ages and social-economic backgrounds have joined the crowds on the streets, including men. All over the world, protests in solidarity with the people on the streets in Iran have taken place. But what could and should governments do, especially those pursuing a Feminist Foreign Policy?
The conversation provides background knowledge on the protests in Iran, Iranian-German as well as Iranian-European relations and articulates clear and actionable demands for the German government and the international community.
