Neda Soltani’s Story

June 22, 2009

nedaFrom the Guardian:

She was 26, a philosophy student and a part-time travel agent, according to those who knew her. She was no rock thrower at the ­vanguard of a movement for regime change , but, according to her fiance, Caspian Makan, a young woman who may have ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Makan, said she had been in a car in central Tehran with her music teacher when they were caught in a traffic jam. He said the pair had left the car to escape the heat.

It was when she was walking down ­Karegar Street talking on her phone that the shot rang out.

    Apparently she was an innocent bystander, Mr Meredith, and it is mostly innocents who suffer in brutal tyrannies. She will not be forgotten!

    It’s after viewing insane acts like the killing of Neda that make me so thankful that I live in America. I hope the protestors can change the corrupt and vile leaders in their country. I hope it doesn’t come to that here in the U.S. God Bless you Neda. I hope the killer rots in hell.
