Neda Agha-Soltan "The Angel of Iran" (1982-2009)

Neda Agha-Soltan, a young Iranian philosophy student, was murdered by the pro-Government Basiji militia while participating in peaceful pro-democracy demonstrations in Tehran on Saturday, June 20th.

 

Her name, Neda, translates to "voice" in Farsi, the most widely spoken Persian language....

 

Not only has Neda become the voice, and the face, but the human symbol of a revolution.

 

Angel of Iran.... May your dream become reality.
