Iran has arrested two prominent actresses who removed their headscarves in public, showing support for the ongoing protest movement calling for freedom for woman that was sparked by the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in custody last September.

According to multiple reports citing state media, Hengameh Ghaziani and Katayoun Riahi were detained after being summoned by prosecutors and are accused of collusion and acting against Iran’s authorities.

Ghaziani, an award-winner for 2008’s As Simple as That and 2012’s Days of Life who has been a vocal critic of the crackdown on protesters, wrote in an Instagram message this weekend, “Maybe this will be my last post.

From this moment on, whatever happens to me, know that as always, I am with Iranian people until my last breath.” The accompanying video shows Ghaziani turning her back on camera and wrapping her uncovered hair into a ponytail, a gesture which has come to be symbolic of women preparing to protest.
