Protesters say people in their home country are holding a “revolution” amid unrest against their supreme leader.
Protesters lined up outside Labor MP Peter Kyle’s office in Church Road, Hove, at 1pm yesterday afternoon.
People are calling on the government to do more by banning Iranian ambassadors from Britain.
Widespread protests erupted against Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was arrested by the country’s vice squad.
Iranian General Amir Ali Hajizadeh confirmed on Monday that more than 300 people have been killed in the unrest.
John Esfandeyari, 38, who has lived in Brighton for 14 years, said: “Everything happened after the death of Mahsa Amini.
“After her death, protests began across the country. Women, men and children are fighting the regime across the street.
“We say enough is enough, we don’t want 42 years of brutality and dictatorship anymore.
“People are fighting for basic human rights, they want it like me and you.”
Human Rights Activists, a US-based campaigning group, says more than 450 protesters have been killed and 18,000 arrested.
John added: “This is not a protest, this is a revolution. It is a revolution led by women. The regime tried to brush women aside, saying they were second-class citizens. Now women say enough is enough, we want freedom and equality.
“Today it is our responsibility as people to be the voice. Our silence will strengthen the oppressors.”
Demonstrators in Hove chanted “Women, Life, Freedom” and “One Solution, Revolution”.
The protests in Iran, now in their third month, have been brutally crushed by Iranian security forces who have used live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas to quell demonstrations.
Despite the crackdown, demonstrations continue and are scattered across the cities.
It has quickly become one of the most serious challenges facing the Iranian establishment in more than four decades.
Protesters have already held demonstrations in Churchill Square and outside the BBC offices on Queen’s Road in Brighton.
Peter Kyle was in London during the protest.
In a letter to voters, he described Ms Amini’s death as “shocking and reprehensible” and said the Labor Party supported “brave Iranians”.
