London was the scene of thousands of protestors who marched against the Iranian government’s crackdowns on girls and women who don’t follow the strict dress code.
They marched from Trafalgar Square towards Parliament Square holding placards decrying Iran’s government and shouting slogans against Iran’s supreme ruler Ali Khamenei.
Sky News was informed by Sisters Arzoo, Nina and Nina that they were protesting for Iranians to have a voice.
“We want the regime to be overthrown. Arzoo stated that Iran needs freedom.
When asked if they believed that change was possible she answered: “Yes, indeed.” This is the last chance and only time that people have to make a difference.
“A lot celebrities and MPs are talking it up, so these protests make a difference.”
Protests began a fourth week following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa, who was held in custody by Iran’s morality officers.
Amini was detained on suspicion of violating the strict dress code.
According to NGO Iran Human Rights, more than 150 people were killed in unrest in Iran in the last two weeks.

Mahnaz, another protestor, showed Sky News that her palms were painted red in an effort to symbolize blood.
“My hands are sprayed because there’s blood on the streets. The Iranian regime is executing our children and hitting their heads on concrete. She said that the morality police is very dangerous.
“We don’t want this type of regime in Iran. We will have revolution.”
Sky News’ Protester Parsa Sadigh said that he hoped that other countries would take the initiative to impose harsh sanctions against Iran.
“We need all the support we can get in order to change the regime that has been negatively affecting people over 40 years. So that Iran can be restored to its rightful place.”
