Argentinian filmmaker and former pilot Enrique Piñeyro was forced to remove the image of Mahsa Amini from his Boeing 787 to land in Egypt delivering aid to Gaza.

The social activist unveiled the livery to raise awareness over the crisis in Iran following the “Woman Life Freedom Movement” movement last year which challenged the regime and its religious authority.

The nationwide protests were sparked by the death in morality police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in September 2022, now an icon of the uprising.

“To fly a humanitarian cargo to El Arish for Gaza, the Egyptian government would not allow the livery with the photo of Mahsa Amini and the legend,” Piñeyro wrote on X.

The Boeing aircraft also featured an image of Iranian footballer Amir Reza Nasr Azadani and the following slogans: “No woman should be forced to cover her head. No woman should be killed for not covering her head. No man should be hanged for saying this”The footballer was sentenced to 21 years in prison after he was arrested during the protests.

Enrique Piñeyro also helps Ukrainian refugees get to safety, using a Boeing 787 that he owns and operates as part of Solidaire, his charitable organization.
