European parliamentarian cuts her hair in support of women's uprising in Iran

A Swedish politician cut off her hair during a European Parliament debate in support of the women's revolution in East Kurdistan and Iran after a speech in Kurdish, citing the motto "Jin, Jîyan, Azadi" (Woman, Life, Freedom).

Iraqi-born European Union parliamentarian Abir Al-Sahlani condemned the murder of Kurdish woman Mahsa (Jina) Amini during a debate in the European Parliament. The politician cut her hair after a speech to support the women's revolution in East Kurdistan and Iran.

“Iranian women have been carrying out their protests bravely for three weeks. Kurdish, Persian and Azeri women in Iran are ready to sacrifice their lives to obtain their freedom. The United Nations should not remain silent on this issue and should take a stand against the killing of protestors. Otherwise, the pressure on women would increase even further,” Al-Sahlani said during her speech.

“Until the women of Iran are free, we are going to stand with you”, she added before she cut off her ponytail, shouting 'Jin, Jîyan, Azadi'.
