Iran. Protest at Tehran metro station, services intervened. Recordings

At a subway station in the Iranian capital, a crowd gathered on the platform chanted slogans in support of women’s rights. The demonstrators were dispersed by the services that used force against them. Recordings of the incident in Tehran were released by Reuters.

The first of the videos, which was made available on November 15, shows a crowd on a Tehran subway platform chanting: “I am a free woman. You are depraved.” A moment later, as a result of the intervention of the Iranian services, chaos reigned at the station as the demonstrators fled.

The second video was released a day later. It was recorded from inside a subway car. In the footage, people can be heard screaming, and at one point, a man is seen on the platform behind the window of the train with what appears to be a paintball gun, Reuters reported.

Reuters was able to confirm the location shown in the recordings. However, it is not clear when the protest took place.

Demonstrations in Iran erupted after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by the morality police. After being detained for “inappropriate headgear”, the woman mysteriously fell into a coma and died in hospital. According to Amini’s family, she was beaten by the officers.
