On the occasion of International Human Rights Day, a women's march was taking place across Germany in solidarity with Afghan, Kurdish and Iranian women against violations of women, girls and human rights and for democracy and freedom!

We showed solidarity with the oppressed women and children in Iran, in the Kurdish regions and in Afghanistan. We are against the oppressive patriarchal regimes that brutally beat and kill people.


Our association, the Kulturbrücke Hamburg e.V. with our initiative "International Women in Power" took over the organization of the women's march in Hamburg. We have formed an alliance nationwide: Together with organizations in Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt and Stuttgart, we organized solidarity demonstrations for human rights, democracy and freedom on the International Human Rights Day, Saturday, December 10, 2022, and coordinated marches in other cities.

With the Women's March for Human Rights, we were sending a nationwide signal to the world!

In Iran, a young woman was murdered by the moral-police because her hair was not fully covered with a headscarf. The brutal death of Zhina Mahsa Amini was the last straw in Iran. For more than two months we have seen the people of Iran rebelling against the mullahs' dictatorship. Today we can speak of a feminist revolution made by women.


 In Iran, the protests against the regime continue despite the most brutal violence.

The protesting Iranians are no longer willing to accept the mullahs' regime's oppression. Within the feminist revolution in Iran, an estimated 18,000 people have already been imprisoned and more than 600 people, including many children and young people, have been murdered, although it must be assumed that the number of unreported fatalities is far higher.

Starting at Dammtor, we marched through St. Georg to the Old Town, where we heard various speaker

solidarity march on the 20th of Nov. 2022 in the Schanze; Hamburg.

In Hamburg, the citizens gather to show their solidarity with the women and people from Iran!

Funeral service for Jina Mahsa Amini

On Oct. 28, 2022, the murdered Kurdish woman Jina Mahsa Amini was commemorated in Hamburg and a minute of silence was observed. We mourned the deceased and show solidarity with the struggling women and children of Iran.
