United Nations, May 23.– It's been six months since the start of the protests in Iran Protest in Iran 2023which shook the foundations of the country's ruling theocracy. Calling for women’s rights, freedom, and democracy, protestors continue to be met with senseless violence from the Islamic Republic. According to a recent briefing by the UN, the scale and severity of such violence carries evidence of crimes against humanity. The allegation arrives amidst news that the Islamic Republic plans to enforce mandatory hijab, a “divine decree” at the origin of the protests.
