More than 1,000 Iranians took to the streets across Iran early Wednesday to protest a rash of so-called “acid attacks” against women who do not strictly follow Islamic law.
Protests against increased frequency of these acid attacks erupted outside Iran’s Justice Ministry in Isfahan and in other Iranian cities, with anti-regime protestors demanding that the extremist perpetrators of these attacks be brought to justice.
“Death to acid attackers,” protestors chanted in Farsi, according to video of the protests in Isfahan. “Guns, tanks, cannot be used to [force use of] the veil, we will sit here until we get an answer. State Security Forces, where are the eyes of our sisters?”
