Karroubi: “Neda’s death will remain in people’s memories for years and even centuries”

NedaKarroubi visited Neda Agha Soltan’s family to offer his condolences to her family and honor the memory of Neda and other victims of the post-election events.
“Neda’s death signified the innocence of the people of Iran under these conditions…and god willing, it will benefit the people now and in the future.”
“Neda Agha Soltan joined history and people’s movements.  Her innocence was so immense that it made everyone react…Our efforts is to keep the people’s movement alive.”
AFP is reporting that the Iranian government is denying a permit for a silent demonstration to mourn the 40th day since the death of Neda and the unknown number of other demonstrators who were killed on June 20. “No permit has been issued for gathering and marching for any individuals or different political groups,” the Interior ministry’s political director told Fars news.
