The CMES stands in solidarity with demonstrators protesting the killing of Mahsa Amini, tragically lost to us in the prime of her life. We send our love and thoughts to those affected by this tragedy. We categorically condemn the repeated and brutal violations of basic human rights and of the rights of women in Iran.
“Kūnū qawwāmīna bi-l-qisṭi shuhadāʾ! (Stand firmly in justice, as witnesses!)” (Qurʾān, Women: 135).
