Iran is facing the first-ever women’s revolution in its history, started by the death of Mahsa Amini on September 16th, 2022. Since then, people in Iran have shown tremendous bravery, risking their lives on the streets, fighting their violent dictatorial regime, and seeking basic human rights and freedom. By now, the regime has responded to the protesters with pure cruelty. Thousands have been arrested or killed, disappeared having critical medical conditions, brutally tortured in jails, and sentenced to the death penalty without any court cases or support from international organizations. A nation of 8 million citizens & over 4,000 years of history needs our international support right now.

The use of the political and popular Kurdish slogan “Woman, Life, Freedom” in Iran goes back to the series of protests following the death of Mahsa Amini. The slogan was first chanted at her funeral in Saqqez and then was heard in the initial protests in Sanandaj.
This is the goal of this special release that would be supported by a charity event in Berlin on the 7th of March at @about.blank.berlin with help of amazing locals and a massive representation of Iranian all FLINTA DJs. All profits will be donated to the organization helping women in Iran with the ongoing revolution.
