Earlier this month, Mahsa Amini was killed by Iranian police after she was arrested for improperly wearing her hijab.
The incident sparked massive protests across the country, leading to police cracking down on Iranian citizens and cutting off internet access in the country.
Here in Madison, a group of Iranian protesters gathered at the state Capital yesterday to show their support for the Iranian people, and call for women rights.
WORT Producer Nate Wegehaupt spoke with Soroush Aslani, one of the protests organizers, about Sunday’s demonstration.
