On the occasion of the events of last week, we were of course on the road again and organized a demonstration against the Iranian mullah regime.
The protest took place in front of the Hamburg Imam Ali mosque. the porter of the mosque is being observed by the Hamburg Office for the Protection of the Constitution and at that time had organized a funeral for Soleimani.
We wanted to stand up against this and show that the majority of Iranians are against the mullah regime!
And we succeeded - because after the protest, many media reported from us!
Here you can find the corresponding SPIEGEL report here, including a statement by the chairman of the IWP, Ms. Hourvash Pourkian!

The fight against the protests in Iran has reached a new level of escalation: In order to stop the demonstrators, not only is the entire Internet paralyzed, but a real massacre is carried out!
More than 1,000 demonstrators have already been killed by the regime. Including numerous students and young people. This has to be stopped! That is why we started a big demolition in downtown Hamburg last Saturday, November 23rd, 2019.
This is how we show our solidarity with the Iranian people!
Thanks to all who have supported us!
This year we were again at the CSD Hamburg and enjoyed it very much!
Numerous activists are marching through downtown Hamburg and have drawn attention to the dire situation for homosexual people in Iran.
Because in Iran, homosexuality is a "crime" and people are executed for it. We want to fight against that!
Of course, our march also stood in the sense of general equality for homosexuals around the world.
We received a lot of positive feedback and a lot of enthusiasm.
We were mentioned in the Hamburg-Journal and even the Iranian television "Manoto in London" showed our intragram video!
We are very happy about the great attention and this motivates us to keep going!
AND BECAUSE IT WAS SO NICE, HERE ARE A FEW
In cooperation with the State Center for Political Education Hamburg and the Patriotic Society, an Iran conference was launched!
find here the official video, as well as more information about the event!
Numerous women with and without a migration background have joined us and marched with us. We are proud to have reached so many people with our cause and it gives us courage to keep going!
Even the Hamburger Abendblatt wrote about us.
Here is a little glimpse into the day:
Particularly moving was the performance of a Persian poem by Nilufar Ghoreishi:

Hamburg, Friday, March 8th, 2019 | 3 p.m. | Start: Gänsemarkt
Protest march: Migrant women demonstrate in Hamburg against the oppression of women and girls
Our motto: "Equal, self-determined, free" for the rights of women
"The veiling of girls of all ages - a growing phenomenon in many schools and even kindergartens - represents discrimination and sexualization of minors.
That is why TERRE DES FEMMES e.V. ( registered association)
demands a legal ban on the so-called “children's headscarf” in public spaces, especially in educational institutions, for all underage girls. We want girls to grow up without a headscarf and without full veils - here and elsewhere. "
The Iranian women from IWP have joined forces with other people from Iran who are living in exile in Hamburg as
" Iranian Human Rights Initiative ".
Together they demonstrated on Christopher Street Day on August 4th in Hamburg against the execution of homosexuals in Iran.
The group also wanted to draw attention to further human rights violations and the repression in Iran!
With so many participants and spectators, the parade was a complete success!
The message was also very well received, the demand against the Iranian regime made it into the MOPO!
The chairwoman of IWP Hourvash Pourkian greets the Persian New Year Norouz and wishes all people joy, peace and above all

Gather and demonstrate:

Thousands of demonstrators have been arrested and dozens have been threatened by armed militias. The only offense was their peaceful participation - their basic democratic right to stand up for their interests and those of their country.

The change in the goal of regional power
to a regional role model.
