"Woman, Life, Freedom" This is what people in Iran are now chanting in streets during their protests against massive violations of women’s rights, corruption in all branches of government and autocratic laws and regulations.
The demonstrations reignited on September 17th, when a 22-years old girl named “Mahsa Amini” was arrested and beaten to death by the so-called morality police, solely for not having a proper hijab. Just like before, however, roars of people and protesters demanding their rights are being answered by nothing other than brutal repression and bloodshed. This time the protests are not only limited to streets but to social media as well! So much so that the whole world has heard and echoed the voice of Iranian people. The hashtag #MahsaAmini has now an all-time record of being retweeted more than 400 million times on Twitter, growing rapidly. Since the beginning, many celebrities, activists and famous societies around the world have been supporting the current movement in Iran.
As a group of international game developers, we also strongly believe that at this moment, nothing is more important than informing and reflecting the true message of this historical event. For us, video games are one of the strongest media to express and deliver our deepest thoughts, feelings and beliefs; With this in mind, we all invite you to join us in the “Woman, Life, Freedom” Game Jam and become another voice of support for those who are standing against oppression and injustice.
