“Neda, don’t be afraid. Neda, don’t be afraid. Neda, stay with me. Neda stay with me!”
At 19:05 June 20th
Place: Karekar Ave. (at the corner crossing Khosravi St. and Salehi st.)
A young woman who was standing aside with her father watching the protests was shot by a basij member hiding on the rooftop of a civilian house. He had clear shot at the girl and could not miss her. However, he aimed straight her heart. I am a doctor, so I rushed to try to save her. But the impact of the gunshot was so fierce that the bullet had blasted inside the victim's chest, and she died in less than 2 minutes.
The protests were going on about 1 kilometers away in the main street and some of the protesting crowd were running from tear gas used among them, towards Salehi St.
The film is shot by my friend who was standing beside me.
Please let the world know.
Her name was NEDA and she was 16 years old - let the world know.
The rage and sadness within me right now is indescribable! The Islamic Republic will be brought to justice for the crimes against humanity which they have committed for the past 30 years and which today have intensified further with scores of innocent people having been killed in cold blood! Please spread these news and put pressure on your political representatives to condemn these crimes and to TAKE CONCRETE ACTIONS to support the people of Iran who are being slaughtered by the Islamic Republic!!!
