Fighting for Neda

1 Comment

Blessings to Iranian human rights lawyer and Nobel Prize winner, Shirin Ebadi, who has courageously offered to represent the family of Neda, the young woman shot by snipers during a protest on the streets of Tehran.  Perhaps she will also represent the parents of Kaveh Alipour who were told they must pay the Iranian government a $3000 bullet fee to retrieve their slain son’s body.  I am gratified by the people all over the world who are standing in solidarity with the Iranians who are demanding human rights during this crackdown.  Neda and Kaveh must not die in vain.
