Politecnico for women's rights in Iran

Politecnico di Torino stands beside the women and men in Iran who are courageously protesting against the violation of fundamental human rights and suffering violent repression, which is also severely affecting university campuses.

Further to the message of solidarity expressed by the Network of Italian Universities for Peace towards Iranian female students enrolled in our universities and towards those who are demonstrating in Iran these days, Politecnico joins the many voices which are rising up to support the protests and to condemn the oppression of Iranian women systematically pursued by the "Moral Police", the killing of Masha Amini and Hadis Najafi, the blocking of the Internet access, and the repression of demonstrations that has resulted in hundreds of deaths and arrests.

Freedom, justice and respect for diversity are the cornerstones of our community. We express our full solidarity with those who are now fighting in Iran, even at the cost of their own lives, to defend these values.
