A Persian rendition of the revolutionary Italian folk song “Bella Ciao,” recorded by Iranian sisters in response to Mahsa Amini’s death, has gone viral.

Mahsa Amini, 22, died as a result of alleged police brutality for not properly wearing her hijab.

Several media outlets reported that many streets in the country are filled with demonstrators protesting the young woman’s death and the morality police who ensure people follow the country’s strict dress code for women.

Videos on social media showed a slew of Iranian women publicly burning their hijabs and cutting their hair.

During the country’s worst protests since 2019, two Iranian sisters, Samin and Behin Bolouri, recorded the Persian version of Bella Ciao and posted it on Instagram.

The caption was translated as “We will not be awake until tomorrow.”
