"Frau, Leben, Freiheit“ - Menschenrechte im Iran - eine Bestandsaufnahme

You cannot miss this event.
In the organizer's words:

"Woman, Life, Freedom", "Jin, Jiyan, Azadî", is the slogan against the political oppression of women and for the strengthening of human rights in Iran, which has occupied the world since the death of the then 22-year-old student Jina Mahsa Amini in police custody in the fall of 2022. People in Iran are still demonstrating for a dignified and equal life, against police violence and social inequality, but the movement is no longer receiving as much media attention as it did at the beginning of the protests.

Last year, the European Parliament awarded the prestigious Sakharov Prize for commitment to human rights to Jina Mahsa Amini and the "Woman, Life, Freedom" movement. The Iranian activist Narges Mohammed received the Nobel Peace Prize for her courageous commitment. In the meantime, other conflicts have taken center stage.

We ask: What is the current situation in Iran? The following topics will be discussed in a panel discussion on April 24:

  • What is the current state of the protests?
  • How do the current protests differ from the earlier ones and what are the concrete demands of the protesting people in Iran?
  • Is the movement misunderstood as feminist in the "West"? To what extent does the movement go beyond women's rights demands?
  • Which human rights are at risk in Iran and why?
  • Is a change of system possible in Iran?
  • What can the German public and the international community do to support the protesters?
  • What responsibility do Western governments bear for the failure of the uprising?
