On September 16, 2022, a 22-year-old Iranian woman named Mahsa "Zhina" Amini died after being beaten and arrested by Iran's morality police for not wearing her hijab (headscarf) properly. As a result, protests broke out throughout Iran. This clip is a compilation of footage from the protests. For an earlier clip of footage from the protests, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 9833.

In this clip, protestors can be seen violently clashing with Iranian authorities, beating policemen, destroying vehicles belong to Iran's police and security forces, burning pictures of slain IRGC Qods Force Commander Qasem Soleimani, and chanting slogans such as "Khamenei, [you] evil man, we will bury you in the ground!", "Death to the Islamic Republic!", and "Be wary of the day when we have weapons!"

This clip includes footage from protests in Tehran, Mashhad, Tabriz, Kerman, Noshahr, Rasht, Kish Island, Rafsanjan, and elsewhere.
