A woman was seen cutting her hair during a demonstration in Sydney, Australia, on Saturday, October 1, in support of protesters taking to the streets of Iran.
Footage posted by Sabrina Melei showed a woman cutting multiple chunks of her hair on stage as the crowd cheers. In further footage, the crowd can be heard chanting, “say her name” and “Mahsa Amini,” and “we want freedom for Iran.”
Close to 3,000 Australians rallied in cities including Sydney, Hobart, and Melbourne, SBS reported.
Women have burned their hijabs and cut their hair during protests across the country sparked by the death of a 22-year-old woman, Mahsa Amini, in police custody in Tehran over a fortnight ago.
