By Dr. Vianne Timmons

On behalf of the Memorial community, I extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mahsa Amini.

Ms. Amini was a 22-year-old woman who died in Iran after being arrested by Iran’s morality police for how she was dressed. We also recognize and honour those who were injured or killed while protesting Ms. Amini’s death.

We stand in solidary and offer our support to members of our community who are impacted by this tragedy.
