(CNN) — A year ago Sunday, Neda Agha-Soltan died of a single gunshot wound to the chest. Her last moments — captured on a cell phone camera and shown around the world– catapulted her into the symbol of the postelection reform movement in Iran.
Today, the Iranian regime’s crackdown seems to have driven protesters off the streets. But the movement is not weakening, some analysts say. Instead, it’s evolved into an online underground civil rights struggle, they say.
“I think they’re going to continue to move forward, whether in the form of a green movement or another type of movement,” said Karim Sadjadpour, a fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. “It’s just, basically, this march of history.”
Agha-Soltan, 26, was at an anti-government demonstration in Tehran when she was felled by a single bullet to the chest.
