Neda wanted Freedom for everyone!

Neda Agha-Soltan, who was shot dead by the Islamic regime of Iran's security forces on Saturday 20 June, wanted freedom for everyone.
In interviews with the press, her fiancee, Caspian Makan, said 'Neda was never supportive of either group [referring to the factions in the regime]. She wanted freedom; Freedom for everyone.'
Her murder has become a rallying point across the world.
He went on to say: "She was near the area, a few streets away, from where the main protests were taking place, near the Amir-Abad area. She was with her music teacher, sitting in a car and stuck in traffic.
"She was feeling very tired and very hot. She got out of the car for just a few minutes.

"That's when she was shot dead. Eyewitnesses and video footage of the shooting clearly show that probably Basij paramilitaries in civilian clothing deliberately targeted her. Eyewitnesses said they clearly targeted her and she was shot in the chest.

"She passed away within a few minutes. People tried to take her to the nearest hospital, the Shariati hospital. But it was too late."

Makan said Neda's family struggled to persuade the Iranian authorities to release her body.

"She was taken to a morgue outside Tehran. The officials from the morgue asked if they could use parts of her corpse for body transplants for medical patients," he said.

"They didn't specify what exactly they intended to do. Her family agreed because they wanted to bury her as soon as possible.

"We buried her in the Behesht-e-Zahra cemetery in southern Tehran. They asked us to bury her in this section where it seemed the authorities had set aside spaces for graves for those killed during the violent clashes in Tehran last week."

The regime banned her family from holding a public funeral.

He continued: 'She only ever said that she wanted one thing, she wanted freedom for the people of Iran.’

The white-haired man who is seen pressing on her chest in the video and repeatedly saying 'don't be afraid, Neda dear, don't be afraid' was actually her music teacher.

There is nothing left to fear, as so many have understood across the ages, it is better to die free than to live without rights.

Across the world our harts bleed with you and our pride in humanity swells as we see once more the cry for freedom bloom.

Nada your voice has not been stilled in vain because of you, your brothers and sister will have the freedom you gave your life for.

Boycot Simens as they in their greed sold the programs that is used to track the blockers!!!

Nada, are you the umpteenth vain victim of man's violence and oppression? No, your death is a voice that shouts not only to Iran, but to all the world. You filled another vacuum into the freedom puzzle. Let's solve it together now!

Dedicated to all the People of Iran. Draw strenght from these words from our Prince, the late Dr. Martin Luther King!

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day the great country of Iran, whose Supreme Leader's lips are presently dripping with the words of bloodshed, interposition and nullification, will be transformed into a situation where all men and woman of Iran will be able to join hands and walk together as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Allah shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

This is our hope. This is the faith with which I return to Iran. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.

This will be the day when all of Allah's children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, Iran, Allah Akbar. Land where my fathers died, land of Iran's pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring."

And if Iran is to be a great nation this must become true. So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of Arasbaran. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of Jaam, Qaen and Makran. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Khorasan!

Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of Sabalan!

Let freedom ring from the curvaceous peaks of Talesh!

But not only that; let freedom ring from the streets of Tehran where Neda Died!

Let freedom ring from the Damavand, the highest peak of Iran!

Let freedom ring from every hill and every molehill of North, South, East and West of Iran. From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every province and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of Allah's children, Men and Woman, Shi'ite Muslim, Sunny Muslim, Zoroasterian, Christians, Jews and Baha'i, will be able to join hands and sing in the word, "Free at last! free at last! Allah Akbar, we are free at last!"

Anche se non condivito alcuni punti di vista dell'editore di questo blog, ho deciso di condividere con lui e con voi un contenuto che trapassa ogni idiologia politica, sociale, culturale, di destra centro o quello che sia. Quello che sta succedendo in Iran, ma anche in altre parti del mondo anche se geograficamente e socialmente vicine o lontane da noi... mi obbliga in quanto uomo a pensare che l'essere umano, per quanto intelligente sia si stà auto-distruggendo.
Svegliati uomo,
guarda!!! ascolta, e rifletti, reaggisci !!!
Peccato, si peccato che domani quando ti sveglierai, e ricomincerai la tua giornata e dunque la tua vita avrai sicuramente già dimenticato che al mondo esistevano ed esistono ancora dei tiranni, che a causa di persone come te, assassinano la Libertà impunemente. Lo so anche io domani mi svegliero, andro a lavorare e mi occupero della mia vita e di tutto quello che mi circonda. Senza sapere che ogni giorno della mia vita é scandito da un principio, un principio che in tempi passati ha rischiato di essere oppresso, ma che grazie all'unione della fratellanza é risorto. ancora piu forte. e potente...divulgandosi sempre di piu...
La Libertà
20/06/2009 Un altro giorno nasce, ancora una volta mi sveglio....
e già peccato, é già troppo tardi.
Questo e un pensiero che vola in memoria di Neda e a tutte le vittime morte in nome della Libertà.
La storia lo ha scritto e purtroppo continua e continuerà a scriverlo. La Libertà ha un prezzo molto caro, che spesso si paga con la vita.
Contrariamente, l'unione fa la forza e non costa nulla, solo un po di buona volonta un pizzico di fratellanza e solidarietà.
Uomo, domani quando ti veglerai...

"who was shot dead by the Islamic regime of Iran's security forces on Saturday 20 June,"
How is it KNOWN that it was the Islamic regime? Source please? No proof. No Evidence. It didn't happen.

" Eyewitnesses and video footage of the shooting clearly show that probably Basij paramilitaries in civilian clothing deliberately targeted her."

Names of these eyewitnesses? Reference or location of their statements?
Again we have this butchering of the English language; "clearly show that probably"... WTF does that mean exactly?

This convoluted sob story has gone from 'probably was' them to 'definitely was' them without one skerrick of proof or reference to any facts. This stinks of inflamed propaganda to get the telavidiots who believe everything they see on TV onside with ANOTHER war of aggression. I suppose everyone who believes this act of murder was the Ira(q)nian regime has already forgotten WMD's and other assorted LIES about 'OUR' enemies??? They've taken gullible out of the dictionary to you know? If there's "video footage" of those who committed these acts then WHERE THE HELL IS IT? SOURCE PLEASE? NO PROOF? IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!

"paramilitaries in civilian clothing"
If they are in civilian clothing HTF does anyone know they were 'paramilitaries' and how does anyone know who they owed their allegiance to or who they were working for? Did someone go and ask them after they did their shooting? I think not. No proof. It didn't happen.

"You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from the political game. The reason was quite simple: to force ... the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security" was how Operation Gladio participant Vincenzo Vinciguerra put it later during his testimony to Italian authorities. "
From the notes on this page critical thinking has long since left the building and emotional tear jerking is all the rage. Wake up and smell the coffee people. You are almost certainly being lied to regarding who shot this poor girl.

For the under-educated.
Operation gladio: "a far-right secret army, operated by the CIA and MI6 through NATO, which killed hundreds of innocent Europeans and attempted to blame the deaths on Baader Meinhof, Red Brigades and other left wing groups"
Do you understand that the CIA has on dozens of documented occasions targeted and murdered civilians in order to get what they want? Now I ask what possible benefit to the Iranian regime in murdering this girl in such a manner? Then I ask what possible benefit in murdering this girl for those who oppose the Iranian regime? Who benefits almost certainly = who committed this act.
If this murder isn't part of a psyop then the world will likely soon be coming to an end.

I'd assume anonymous is probably some nut from Iran trying to spread lies. I'm used to it now.
