Remember Neda Agha-Soltan

Murdered by the Basij militia on Kargar Avenue in Tehran last Saturday. She was buried at the Behesht-e Zahra cemetery, & denied a proper funeral by government authorities. The Iranian government has also issued a ban on collective prayers in mosques for Neda in the aftermath of the incident. Almost exactly 20 years to the day after the Red Army Butchers of Tianenmen ordinary people like you & me are once more struggling & dying this time in Iran for the crime of protesting for simple freedoms that we the lucky ones take for granted...

“Do not rejoice in his defeat, you men.
For though the bastard is dead, the bitch that bore him is in heat again.”
