Protestors gathered in the quad after the killing of Iranian woman Mahsa Amini.

Amini was killed a week prior on Sept. 16. Iran soon after broke out into cross-country protests. The protests have since spread worldwide to show solidarity.

Students present said the goal of the protest was to gather Iranians and other people who thought that women’s lives were important. 

The protestors had a microphone and speaker, which were open to anyone who wished to say something. 

Demonstrations within the protest involved one protestor cutting their hair with a pair of scissors, a reference to Amini being arrested for some of her hair showing. Another was a small circular cell made of wood and wire, within it were two protestors with their mouths taped shut. Individual protestors could each cut one wire, and once the two were freed, they yelled out “Freedom!”
