An Angel's Heart was broken but not her Spirit

An Angel's Heart was broken but not her Spirit
Remember Neda Agha-Soltan & all the innocent victims of Iranian state terror.

The Basij militiaman shot Neda through the heart, murdering her in a brutal & unprovoked attack 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 Tienanmen commited their atrocities more ordinary people like you & me are once more struggling, & dying - this time in Iran. Their crime? To protest for simple freedoms that we the lucky ones take for granted...

I am seething with anger here in Ireland, feeling completely impotent, unable to help the brave people in Iran with their struggle for justice & freedom. I have created this image as my tiny but sincerely heartfelt contribution to their cause...& to the memory of a brave young woman called Neda.

"Neda only ever said that she wanted one thing, she wanted democracy and freedom for the people of Iran."

“Neda had said that even if she lost her life and got a bullet in her heart, she would carry on.”

Caspian Makan, Neda’s fiancé

For though the bastard is dead, the bitch that bore him is in heat again.”
