For Mahsa and for all Iranian women
The Network of Universities for Peace (RUNIPACE), to which Politecnico di Torino belongs together with 66 other Italian universities, issued the following statement:
The Network of Italian Universities for Peace expresses its closeness and solidarity to the female students of Iranian nationality enrolled in Italian universities, to all Iranian women and to the many young Iranian men who are courageously demonstrating in these days.
"The death of Mahsa Amini in Tehran and of five other women who had taken to the streets to protest profoundly shakes our consciences" - highlight Enza Pellecchia and Marco Mascia, Coordinators of the Network - "we cannot stand idly by the violation of fundamental human rights. We will take action to organise initiatives to raise public awareness”.
