For almost

three weeks, protests have continued in Iran in the name of Mahsa Amini

, the 22-year-old Kurdish woman

who died after being arrested by the

moral police for

not wearing the veil correctly


Yesterday high

school students demonstrated on the streets in various cities

removing their veils and since last week many university students have joined the demonstrations.

News and images arrive from the country with difficulty, also because

the authorities have limited the use of the Internet.

Meanwhile, at least

620 protesters are detained "who did not play a role in the sabotage" and who were released last night in Tehran


This was announced by the Iranian press agency Irna according to which

the deputy head of the Iranian judiciary Kazem Gharibabadi yesterday visited the

central prison of the capital, in Hasanabad south of Tehran, and spoke with

some people detained after taking part in the protests for Mahsa Amini


During the visit, Gharibabadi stressed that

"Islamic piety will allow the release"

of those among the prisoners who "despite having committed illegal acts" have not participated in sabotage or attacks on the police.

Those who

did not find pity or liberation

, however, were

Nika Shakarami, 17,

 who disappeared after participating in a demonstration in Tehran for Mahsa's death.

Her lifeless body was found by her family after ten days, with a broken nose and a smashed head.

In her last message from her, a voice note sent to a friend of hers, she said she was being

chased by her security forces

, her aunt Atash Shakarami told BBC Persian. 

Anger has exploded on

social media for yet another victim of the violent repression of protests

, activists and protesters have published photos and videos of the girl: in one released today we see Nika Shakarami singing and acting.

According to the AP news agency,

the prosecutor of the western province of Lorestan, Dariush Shahoonvand, denied any wrongdoing by the authorities and said the girl was buried in her village on Monday.

"Foreign enemies tried to create a tense and anxious atmosphere after this incident," the prosecutor told the Hamshari newspaper, without providing further details on the incident.

Also on social media, there are many

gestures of solidarity towards Iranian women

and many international stars are symbolically cutting their hair.

As also shown in an episode of the show Le Iene, many Italian actresses, such as Claudia Gerini, participate in the protest.
