From the Iran Protest Youtube channel:

The anguished cries of Neda’s father, (Correction: It was her music teacher she was with) heard in the uncut videos have been translated:

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

The horrifying and heart-breaking murder of  27 year old martyr, Neda, as seen by millions on Youtube, has become a powerful symbol for the resistance in Iran.


This is the injustice they are fighting.

As another Iranian woman reportedly said, ” There is no fear here now.I feel it in the air. We all are ready to become martyrs. Why live if you are not free. No point”


More about Neda at American Power. It might surprise you to know, she wasn’t even an activist. But she was out on the street to protest the stolen election

  1. Obviously the people in power in Iran should not be in power…to have killed an innocent woman shows the type of control that is in power now and will continue be in power in the future if they are not stopped. I can only say how much I support the peace loving people that are trying to make their country a better place in this world of war and war crimes. I think that the people that did vote for cruel power at hand now, should wear the blood of Neda on their face. “Let Peace be with you Neda” for your eternal & spiritual life.


  2. I could not watch it again after seeing it this weekend. The tree of liberty is being watered by patriots. Will it soon be the turn of the tyrants.

  5. It’s after viewing insane acts like the killing of Neda it truly makes 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.


  6. Beautiful song.
    That song is also part of the soundtrack of the movie “The Insider” with Russell Crowe…. Lisa and Pieter did the whole soundtrack.
    Lisa once said that the words in Sacrifice are made up…they aren’t any particular language so the listener can apply any meaning to the song that they want.


  7. She also sang the main theme for Blackhawk Down, “J’attends” with a male singer…I can’t think of his name, but they both have such haunting voices.


  8. I have become obsessed watching Nada’s video. Every time I watch it I cry. I will no longer watch it again, but she will be with me forever. I know this happens all over the world we live in. Maybe everyone needs to see these atrocities more often for more people to get involved. I am not political or religious, so I am not going to go there. I only wish I could do something to make this world a better place. My heart goes out to her family, friends and loved ones. Nada, you did not die in vain. You will be remembered in everyones hearts all over the world.

  11. Neda was a whore. Allah is donkey punching her as we speak. And that was her old boyfriend she was with when Mousavi made her a martyr, not her father.
