General strike in East Kurdistan to protest killing of Jina Mahsa Amini
Many parties and organizations have called for a general strike today across East Kurdistan to protest the killing of Jina Mahsa Amini by Iranian forces.
A group of parties, civil society organizations and political activists from East Kurdistan called for a general strike against the torture and murder of Jina Mahsa Amini by Iranian forces.
PJAK and KODAR called on everyone to join the general strike today with the slogans of "Jin jiyan azadi" and "Martyr Namirin" to protest the murder of Jina Mahsa Amini by the Iranian state.
In addition, parties affiliated to the Iranian Kurdistan Parties Cooperation Center, the Iranian Communist Party-Kurdistan and a group of parties from East Kurdistan, as well as civil society organizations and political activists called for participation in the general strike.
Jina Mahsa Amini was arrested by the so-called moral and religious police on Tuesday during a family visit in the Iranian capital Tehran because she did not wear her hijab as prescribed. At a police station, "awareness and training measures" were to be carried out on the dress code. According to the police, she fainted there due to heart failure and then fell into a coma. But the family tells a completely different story. They said Amina was tortured and had a brain hemorrhage which led to her entering into a coma. Her death was confirmed on Friday.
