Media Advisory: Women, Life, Freedom: Canadian and Global Events to Stand in Solidarity with the Women of Iran

TORONTO, March 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Association of Families of Flight PS752 Victims (the Association) and groups across the world are organizing events on March 11th and 12th to show continued support of Iran’s revolution for freedom.

The poisoning of Iranian schoolgirls is another link in the chain of crimes committed by the Islamic Republic, and it is another attempt by the Regime to silence the voices of Iranian women and girls. The Association continues to stand in solidarity with the women of Iran and their distressed families and condemns these abhorrent crimes.

In addition to 10 Canadian locations (listed below), there will also be events in the following countries: Australia, Austria, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherland, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States.

The events will be taking place on Saturday, March 11th and Sunday, March 12th depending on location. Please refer to the information below for the specific date of your region’s event.
