NedaNeda Agha Soltan (Persian: ندا آقا سلطان), born 1982, died 20 June 2009, was an Iranian woman whose killing, by Basij militia during the 2009 Iranian election protests, was captured on video by bystanders. The graphic videos were posted on the Internet, and her name quickly became a rallying cry for the opposition. Neda means “voice” or “calling” in Persian, and she has been referred to as the “voice of Iran” and “a symbol of pro-democracy protesters battering the Islamic regime” in the World. (From Wikipedia)

One blogger posted that Neda was protesting in Tehran when pro-government Basiji militia opened fire and shot her. “The final moments of her tender young life leaked into the pavement of Karegeh Street today, captured by cell phone cameras,” the unnamed blogger posted on Newsvine.com. “And not long after, took on new life, flickering across computer screens around the world on YouTube, and even CNN.”

People on Twitter started forming a discussion group with the “hashtag” #neda to post their comments about her death and media coverage of the killing, as well.
It became one of the top “trending topics” on Twitter by Saturday evening, early Sunday Tehran time. “Neda, ojala que tu muerte no sea en vano,” one poster tweeted in Spanish. “Neda, I hope that your death is not in vain.” (From CNN)


“Neda, don’t be afraid. Neda, don’t be afraid. Neda, stay with me. Neda stay with me!”
