The Iranian protest movement now has a symbol and a face: Neda. Neda was an Iranian woman who was shot dead by Basij militia on Saturday during a protest of thousands against the Iranian presidential election results that declared Mahmoud Ahmadinejad president. Her death was captured on video by bystanders and uploaded to the internet. She died with her eyes wide open, and her last moments transcended citizen media to mainstream media, reaching millions of people. A website has been dedicated to Neda, named We are all Neda. A quote on the homepage says, “We did not throw rocks at them, we cried ‘we want freedom'. They shot us.” Both Iranians and non-Iranians are leaving comments in memory of Neda on the site. So far, there are nearly 3,500 and the numbers are growing rapidly. Distributed by Tubemogul.

Transcript by Newsy.com BY STEVEN HSIEH You're watching multisource global video news analysis from Newsy The story of an Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery has caused international outrage. Now- that woman- Sakineh Ashtiani’s has supposedly “confessed” to helping her lover kill the husband she is accused of cheating on. Of course- the confession came during a documentary that aired on the government-run Press TV. Analysts say the documentary is an attempt by the Iranian government to deflect criticism over Sakineh’s harsh punishment. “One day he called me and told me to send my children to my mother’s house in Tabriz. I asked why. He said, ‘Tomorrow I want to kill your husband.’ I asked how. He said, ‘You inject him with a drug and make him unconscious. Then I’ll come and electrocute him.’” (Sky News) The documentary resembles a Court TV report- walking the audience through Sakineh’s story as if every event is proven fact. Majikian: “If anyone betrays, that is, he goes against his vow, that is a promise he or she gives. If you don’t respect your word, no one will respect you. Reporter:” But Sakineh’s story was more than just an affair or a betrayal. It was a betrayal that led to murder.” But CBC points out what many are thinking- that the confession was forced. “A confession, advocates say, was almost certainly made under duress. Iran has said Ashtiani’s case is being manipulated by the West to undermine the country. Human rights advocates say it is Iran that is guilty of manipulation, and this latest example is one of the most egregious yet." And a Huffington Post blogger says Iranian authorities dipped to a new low in distracting the public from its human rights record. She says it’s pretty clear what’s going on here. “Anyone with knowledge of legal procedures, of the minimum standards for the treatment of prisoners, or plain common sense, will not be fooled by this show of strength from a powerful and brutal state that can and does coerce citizens into confessing to crimes they may or may not have committed.” Finally, a writer for the Telegraph says Sakineh’s case is one of many in Iran, and international attention could possibly have counterproductive consequences. “The causes célèbres we pick on often seem to such places random and motivated by broader political concerns…from the Iranians’ point of view, our sudden singling out of [Sakineh’s] case is capricious, and demands similar treatment in return.” The documentary does not say whether Sakineh will still be executed- but it does point out that her case is still making its way through the Iranian legal system.

GRAPHIC Two perspectives of a woman gunned down during protests in Iran Originals: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrdRwOlmIxI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmi-LePl894 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 gass used among them, towards Salehi St. The film is shot by my friend who was standing beside me. Please let the world know

Many of us think of stoning as a punishment practiced in ancient societies. But it still happens in some countries in the Middle East and Africa. "The Stoning of Soraya M." is a film based on the true story of a young Iranian woman stoned to death by her fellow villagers after her estranged husband had falsely accused her of adultery. VOA's Julie Taboh sat down with the film's director and its leading actress to talk about this brutal form of punishment.

August 26, 2009 ROME — Young Iranian film director Hana Makhmalbaf is to preview her film about protests that followed Iran's disputed June presidential election at the Venice Film Festival, organisers said Monday. "The footage is already in Italy and the young director is finishing the editing and post-production at a secret location" thereby avoiding strict Iranian censorship, one of the festival's spokesmen told AFP. "Green Days," using a mix of raw footage from the protests and fictional sequences about the position of women in Iran, will show outside of competition at the 66th Venice Film Festival, which runs from September 2 to 12. The film shows "Iranian society going through a revolution, with all its hopes and doubts" through the story of a depressed young Iranian woman caught up in the political events, a statement quoted Makhmalbaf as saying.

Iran Infuriated By Film Of Woman's Stoning source: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=eed_1287201112 A film portraying the real-life stoning of an Iranian woman is opening in London despite protests from the country's government. It depicts a brutal form of punishment still sanctioned by Iran's current hard-line regime.The film's director, Cyrus Nowrasteh, has dedicated the screening to Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani currently facing execution by stoning or hanging in Iran for adultery. Amnesty International UK director Kate Allen said: "The final scenes of The Stoning Of Soraya M are quite horrific and many viewers might want to turn away. I'd urge them not to. "This is the cruel reality of execution by stoning; watch, be enraged, and take action to stop this inhumane practice. "The case of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani has been taken up by people all over the world, who have protested and written letters to the Iranian authorities urging them to stop her execution by any method."We have to keep this pressure up and make it clear to Iran's leaders that killing Sakineh would cause a global outrage. "We are calling on the Iranian authorities to stop this execution, stop the use of stoning altogether and stop criminalising the sex lives of consenting adults." Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused the West of using the Ashtiani case to generate further opposition against it at a time when the country's nuclear programme is drawing international condemnation. The Stoning Of Soraya M serves as a painful reminder of the ruthlessness of the Iranian government - past and present. "Stonings are thankfully rare in Iran but they represent the ugly tip of a very large iceberg. "At least 190 people have already been executed this year in Iran, mostly by hanging and after unfair trials. "Amnesty opposes the death penalty regardless of the method of execution. The film's director claims some European governments have been reluctant to support it - fearful of antagonising Iran's regime, already at loggerheads with the West. The film The Stoning Of Soraya M is based on the true story of a woman brutally killed after being falsely accused of adultery. Soraya is stoned to death in her Iranian village under Islamic Sharia law. source: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=eed_1287201112
