Iran, they dance in March 8 Square and publish the video on social networks: two girls arrested

Two young girls were arrested yesterday March 8 in Tehran after posting a video on social media in which they danced in the street to celebrate International Women's Day and the Iranian New Year which will begin on March 20 in Tajrish Square from the Iranian capital. . The two young women, who had dressed as Haji Firuz – a fictional character from Iranian folklore who appears on Iranian streets a few days before the New Year – were accused of “behavior contrary to social norms” and then arrested. This is not the first time something like this has happened. In March 2023, five young Iranian women were arrested and forced to repent after posting a video on social media in which they danced without veils in Ekbatan, a suburb of Tehran. Their crime, according to the authorities, was to have put on a ballet to the tune of Calm down by Nigerian singer Rema and Selena Gomez on the occasion of International Women's Day. The Iranian regime is extremely harsh and for months women have been invading the streets of cities to demand more rights, particularly after the death of Mahsa Amini, the 22-year-old young woman killed in police custody after being arrested for not wearing the veil correctly. .
