The death of 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini is sparking outrage worldwide. In the Bay Area, demonstrators descended on the Golden Gate Bridge and gathered at Union Square Sunday to call attention to her death.
Amini was arrested by the country’s “morality police” last week after being accused of wearing a loose and improper head covering. She then needed treatment at a hospital and Iranian officials say she died from a “heart attack.”
On the Golden Gate Bridge and at Union Square, demonstrators were angry about what happened thousands of miles away in Iran. And they’re demanding justice for Amini’s death.
They came out in force. A sea of people poured onto the Golden Gate Bridge Sunday — unified, determined, demanding change. The thousands of people formed a human chain across the bridge.
They say their goal is to stand together and send a message to Iran.
