On Saturday, the Italian capital, Rome, witnessed a march to protest the death of the young woman, Mahsa Amini, after she was arrested by the Iranian morality police.
About 1,500 demonstrators participated in the march, which started from the famous Republic Square and ended in Vittorio Emanuele Square, according to Anadolu Agency.
The demonstrators condemned the killing and arrest of a large number of Iranian protesters over the death of “Amini”.
They chanted slogans such as “Woman, Life, Freedom”, raising banners with phrases calling for the need for women to obtain freedom.

The demonstrators also called on the international community to intervene immediately to put an end to the current situation (repression) in Iran.
On September 16, protests erupted across Iran following the death of 22-year-old Amini, 3 days after she was arrested by the “morality police” concerned with monitoring women’s dress code.
The incident sparked widespread public anger in the political and media circles in Iran, amid conflicting accounts of the causes of death.
