Weekly protests in solidarity with the uprising in Iran continue to attract large numbers in Brisbane. Hundreds attended the latest rally in the city on November 5 where there was an open microphone.
Thousands attended a photo shoot at iconic Kangaroo Point the week before and an even bigger rally was held on October 22 as part of an international day of action.
All of the rallies are echoing the slogans of the uprising in Iran, notably "Women, life, freedom" and the call for justice for Jina Mahsa Amini.
Protesters are highlighting the revolutionary character of the Iranian uprising. "We don't want only reform, we want revolution," one speaker said to great applause on November 5.
"It is a myth to think this regime is reformable," said another.
Protesters are calling for action, not just words, from the Australian government. Speakers and banners called for Iranian diplomats to be expelled and for the regime's assets to be seized.
Thousands made a human sign reading "IRAN" at Kangaroo Point on October 29 and then moved to form a human chain for photographs from the river.
"Justice can't wait," one speaker said on November 5. "We need justice for Mahsa and justice for Iran."
The next rally will be on November 12 at 5pm in King George Square, Brisbane city.
