From Chris de Burgh’s Official Site:
“On June 20th 2009, during a demonstration in Tehran against what many felt was a fraudulent election result, a young woman called Neda Agha-Soltan was targeted and shot to death by a sniper. An innocent bystander, and some distance away from the protest, her dying moments were filmed and seen by millions around the world.
In Persian, her name means “voice”, “calling” and “divine message”, and she has become a powerful and iconic symbol for those who struggle against brutality and repression, seeking only freedom and truth. Neda, this song is for you.”
Listen, in memory of Neda, and for the aspirations of the Iranian people:
Thank you Chris de Burgh.
