Police attacked to women in Women world day

World day of Women in Iran mixed with violence by police and policemen without uniform yesterday. My colleague Nazli took some photos from these events. The number of women who were more than 1000 was dispersed by 100 men who used sticks in their hands. After ASHOORA religious ceremony this is the second that conservative’s police and militia stop people in the street. Most of the people and specially women who took part there are secular. The Cleric believe that the Women day it birthday of Zahra (Daughter of Mohammad prophet). Yesterday women planed to bury the corpse of women’s requests as a symbolic action. But they didn’t let them to this. Some of women were injured by police attack at the end of this meeting.
