News, Persian cafe in L.A. keeps memorial honoring Iranian women killed in protests despite vandalism : detailed suggestions and opinions about Persian cafe in L.A. keeps memorial honoring Iranian women killed in protests despite vandalism .
While Roozbeh Farahanipour was testifying last week in support of Los Angeles County showing solidarity with Iranian women and girls protesting their country’s brutal regime, his wife found their Persian cafe in Westwood vandalized.
His wife, the shop’s pastry chef, showed up to open the Persian Gulf early Oct. 18, but instead found the glass front door shattered, Farahanipour said. He said the attack, which he believes was carried out by sympathizers or actors of the Islamic Republic, came just days after he shared images on Instagram of a new memorial at the cafe honoring Iranian women recently killed during ongoing protests, and the display was featured on different national news outlets.
But Farahanipour says he remains steadfast in his support of protesters in Iran and across the United States calling for an end to the Islamic Republic’s authoritarian decades-long hold over his homeland, undeterred by the recent vandalism.
“Compared to what’s happening to the people in Iran, that’s nothing,” Farahanipour said. “Until this regime ends power, no one’s going to see the peace.”
