Iranians demand action from Canada as nation plunges into protests

By Cosmin Dzsurdzsa

Iranians across Canada are calling on world governments to act as Iran plunges into protests over the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini while in police custody.

Protests took place in Toronto and Vancouver with supporters bearing photos of Amini. Amini was arrested by Iran’s morality police on Sept. 13 for allegedly violating the country’s mandatory veiling laws.

It was revealed that Amini had died three days after her arrest due to what authorities claim was a heart attack.

Iranians have come out in droves across the country to voice their opposition to Amini’s death. Three protestors have since been shot dead by Iranian police including in Urmia, Kermanshah and Piranshahr.
