The brutal death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini after „wrongly“ wearing her hijab ignited one of the world’s most significant revolutions led by women. It has been over 60 days since the people of Iran have stood up against the Islamic regime to receive fundamental human rights. Unfortunately, the internet has been turned off multiple times, leaving the citizens without means of communication or the possibility to call out for help. In the short time windows where the internet has been turned back on, the protestors of Iran have sent out videos, news, and messages.
