At the March 8, 2023 International Women's Day celebration at Revolution Books, Berkeley, participants sang their version of Bella Ciao*, with revolutionary lyrics, in response to the joyful singing of Bella Ciao in Farsi over the phone to Ghazall Abdollahi, daughter of one of the prisoners, which she tweeted in January.

IEC shares this video for its inspiring internationalist solidarity with political prisoners in Iran.

*An anti-fascist anthem which originated as an Italian peasant work song and was popularized in World War II, Bella Ciao has become an anthem of struggle in many countries and languages, including Iran.
