Light will win over darkness.

This is dedicated to the loving people of Iran.
These days, handing out chocolate on the streets of Iran for women, life, and freedom can be punishable...
There is an ongoing trend among the brave people who are resisting gender apartheid in Iran: whenever you see a woman disobeying the mandatory hijab law, you would hand her chocolate, give her a hug or a handwritten note that reads “thank you for making our city beautiful.”
Those who engage in such loving acts are in danger of being a
rrested, as well as other consequences.

Those stars who are being executed in the dark…
Although they fall on the ground
They will rise up again at the dawn…
ستاره‌ها، اعدامیان ظلمت
به خاک اگرچه می‌ریزند
سحر دوباره برمی‌خیزند
