Swedish MEP Abir al-Sahlani has cut her hair in support of anti-government protests in Iran over the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, Reuters reports.
The lawmaker did it while speaking in Parliament in Strasbourg, France. "Until Iran is free, our fury will be bigger than the oppressors. Until the women of Iran are free we are going to stand with you," Iraqi-born Abir Al-Sahlani said in the parliament in Strasbourg, France, on Tuesday evening.
Then, taking a pair of scissors, Abir al-Sahlani said "Jin, Jiyan, Azadi" - Kurdish for "Woman, Life, Freedom" - as she snipped off her ponytail.
