ThisIsForNeda — June 01, 2010 — FOR NEDA reveals the true story of Neda Agha-Soltan, who became another tragic casualty of Iran's violent crackdown on post-election protests on June 20, 2009. Unlike many unknown victims, however, she instantly became an international symbol of the struggle: Within hours of Agha-Soltan's death, cell phone photographs of her blood-stained face were held aloft by crowds protesting in Tehran and across the world. With exclusive access to her family inside Iran, the documentary goes to the heart of who Neda was and what she stood for, illuminating the larger Iranian struggle for democratic freedoms through her powerful story. Directed by Antony Thomas.


Please be respectful.

An Iranian engineer I work with has female relatives that are not finding Iranian husbands in the US. It's very desparate because time is ticking and there is no way to go back to Iran. How much longer can they retain hope?

The problem here is not Iran.

It's not Israel.

It's fu&*^ing governments who do not represent their people!

Like the US, UK, Australia, Israel, Iran, Afghanistan, Russia, China, Iraq, Zimbabwe, and OH so many more.

There are very few that do have their citizens best interests in mind, but they are few and far between.

I'm going to be watching this documentary in whole. When the videos of her death first surfaced, I seeded them for roughly 8 weeks. They are still on my hard-drive for archival sake. Remember Neda. The face of Iran.

Let's get this topic promoted, people! Everybody in the world should see this documentary!

Sat down and watched this documentary a little bit ago. It's really good. Neda was such a beautiful woman, full of life and spirit. The anniversary of her death is coming up and I sincerely hope many people remember her. Don't forget her. Never forget. In memory of Neda. June 20th, 2009.

I watched that when it first came on HBO, extremely hard to take such a wonderful spirit taken through hatred and power hungry people who use religion as a means of control. She was such a beautiful woman and I morn her life.

As am I, I truly hope that the US admin doesn't resist backing them with verbal support this time, while remembering that Iran has to maintain it's autonomy. Still walk the talk as they say.

I remember, what the US didn't do.

I remember some of the comments on this forum too.

Many were not at all happy or supportive of the revolutionary movement in Iran.

Iran hinders web searches leading up to planned rally, sources say

Iran will not allow 'illegal' opposition rally

www.google.com...

TEHRAN — An interior ministry official said on Saturday Iran will not allow the opposition to hold a rally in support of Arab uprisings which regime backers believe to be a ploy for fresh anti-government protests.

Iranian opposition defies warning, calls for rally


TEHRAN, Iran – Iran's opposition on Sunday renewed its call for a rally in support of protesters in Tunisia and Egypt despite a government warning of repercussions if demonstrations take place, a reformist website reported.
www.abovetopsecret.com...
In a statement published on Kaleme.com, the opposition urged its supporters to rally on Monday in central Tehran and accused the government of hypocrisy by voicing support for the Egyptian and Tunisian uprisings while refusing to allow Iranian political activists to stage a peaceful demonstration.

Wary of a reinvigorated opposition at home, Iranian authorities have detained several activists and journalists in recent weeks and opposition leader Mahdi Karroubi was put under house arrest, apparently in connection with the request to stage the rally.

Egyptian Revolution Stirs Raw Emotions in Iran


The seeds of Iran's 1979 revolution that deposed the dictatorial monarchy of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi were sown by the promise of democracy and freedom. The Islamists led by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini functioned as an umbrella group for a hodge-podge of other oppositions—from seculars to communists—but at the end they triumphed. Islam was injected into the aftermath little by little, layer upon layer.

I was a child when the Islamic revolution declared victory in Iran 32 years ago this month. But my memories are crystal clear, perhaps because even a child can tell when events around you have historic proportions.

Like the scenes of wild jubilance in Cairo's Tahrir Square on Friday, with crowds jumping up and down in joy and waving the Egyptian flag, similar emotions erupted across Iran.

An announcement was made on television, our neighborhood exploded with cheers and chants of "God is great." My family stuck their heads out of the window of our apartment building screaming the nationalist song "Ey Iran" and frantically waved a giant flag.
online.wsj.com...
They skipped the stairs of our apartment building three to one, my little sister and I running behind them, to go dance in Valli Asr Avenue, the focal point of all demonstrations in Tehran, then and now. Our entire neighborhood was on the street, jumping up and down. I remember tears streaming down my uncle's face and my grandmother handing out caramel candy wrapped in bright colored foil.

In the following years, as the revolution defined its path, my family ultimately left Iran and settled in the U.S.

Three decades later, Iran is still grappling with how to fuse democracy with religion and ideology. Iranians have differing views of how the revolution fared and whether it fulfilled its promises.

Never mind, I looked it up myself,

www.womenpeacesecurity.org...


Across the world, continued violence threatens the future of millions of women and their communities. The international community has recognized the valuable contribution women make to conflict prevention and sustainable peacebuilding. However, women and gender considerations are still largely absent from the structures that make the decisions to sustain peace or engage in conflict.

The NGOWG on Women, Peace and Security advocates for the equal and full participation of women in all efforts to create and maintain international peace and security. Formed in 2000 to call for a Security Council resolution on Women, Peace and Security, the NGOWG now focuses on implementation of SCR 1325 and all other Security Council resolutions that address this issue. The NGOWG serves as a bridge between women’s human rights defenders working in conflict-affected situations and policy-makers at U.N. Headquarters.

The NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security, via its strategic positioning in New York at United Nations headquarters, plays an important global role in monitoring policy and practice on women, peace and security. Together with its growing network of gender and security experts, the coalition has built a constituency of women, peace and security advocates among UN Member States, high-level UN decision makers, and civil society working on peacebuilding initiatives at the national and local levels.
Mission

The NGO Working Group’s mission is to collaborate with the United Nations, its Member States and civil society towards full implementation of SCR 1325 and all other Security Council resolutions that address women, peace and security, including ensuring the equal and full participation of women in issues relating to peace and security. Using SCR 1325 as our guiding instrument, the NGO Working Group promotes a gender perspective and respect for human rights in all peace and security, conflict prevention and management and peacebuilding initiatives of the United Nations.
Vision

Sustainable peace depends on the full participation of women in all decision-making to prevent violent conflict and to protect all civilians. The NGO Working Group believes that a broad and positive impact on the lives of all people experiencing conflict will result from full implementation of SCR 1325 and promotion of the Beijing Platform for Action, CEDAW and other supporting instruments. We further believe that implementation of SCR 1325 is a necessary tool for the prevention of armed conflict and to facilitate inclusion of gender in the ongoing peace and security discourse taking place within the UN and internationally.


So you are against all these things?


resolutions that address women, peace and security, including ensuring the equal and full participation of women in issues relating to peace and security. Using SCR 1325 as our guiding instrument, the NGO Working Group promotes a gender perspective and respect for human rights in all peace and security, conflict prevention and management and peacebuilding initiatives


I don't particularly care for the UN myself.
