Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Trudeau attended a demonstration in the capital Ottawa in support of the anti-regime protests in Iran.
In his speech here, Prime Minister Trudeau said, “As Canadians, as citizens of the world, we stand up for all women in Iran. We must say ‘enough is enough, stop’.”
Referring to Mahsa Amini, who lost her life while in the custody of Iranian police, Trudeau said, “We cried not only for Mahsa, but also for the mothers and their mothers, for every young woman who has been murdered by this regime who has stepped forward alongside her.”
Stating that they will continue to support the Iranian regime opponents, Trudeau said, “Iranian women, their allies and those who stepped up to stand with them are not forgotten. Their voices are heard and we will multiply these voices. We will reflect those voices back to them and continue to make them heard. We will do everything we can to stand against the Iranian regime.”
The protests that started in Iran after the death of a 22-year-old woman named Mahsa Amini on September 13, 2022, after she was detained by the morality police on the grounds that she did not comply with the headscarf rules, spread all over the country.
More than 230 protesters, including 29 children, have lost their lives in the protests so far.
