On October 26, 2022, protesters in Iran marked 40 days since the death of Jina ("Mahsa") Amini during an arrest by Iran's morality police for not wearing her hijab – headscarf "properly." Protesters marched to Amini's grave outside of Saqqez in Iranian Kurdistan despite road closures, and they chanted slogans including "We will overthrow the dictator, [and] we will avenge Jina!" and "This is the year of a bloody [uprising], Khamenei will be toppled!" The footage in this clip originated from various social media accounts, including Iran International Media on Instagram, BBC Persian journalist Khosro Kalbasi Isfahani's Twitter account, and Kurdistan human rights on Instagram. For more footage from the protests in Iran, see MEMRI TV Clips No. 9891, No. 9837, and No. 9833.

Crowd: "Freedom, freedom! We will overthrow the dictator; we will avenge Jina! This is the year of a bloody [uprising], Sayyed Ali [Khamenei] will be toppled!"
