Tuesday 23 June 2009


To the memory of Neda Agha-Soltan, born 1982, died 20 June 2009. 

A philosophy student, Neda was sitting in her car in traffic on Kargar Avenue, Tehran, last Saturday, with her music teacher. They were on their way to attend a march protesting against the conduct of the Iranian presidential election. Having got out of the car because of the excessive heat, Neda was deliberately targeted and shot in the chest by a member of the Basij, the plainclothes religious militia.

May she rest in peace and may her death not have been in vain.
