Toronto Event in Honour of Neda's Birthday-The Angel of Iran

Shot to death by Islamic Regime agents

An event which was organized in honour of Neda Aghal Soltans 27th birthday. As many may already know Neda was a young Iranian woman who was shot to death by Islamic Regime agents during the recent protests in Iran. If she had not been murdered so unjustly she would have been 27 years old yesterday.

The event was at the North York Centre and started a little after 4pm. Around 200 hundred people attended many of them carrying the Lion and Sun flag. I had made a poster which read “Down with the Islamic Regime of Iran” which I held up during the ceremony. Neda’s fiancé Caspian Mekan was present and spoke to us about Neda. As well Reza Moridi, the Richmond Hill MPP was also present and spoke about the Iranian peoples demand for the removal of the Islamic Regime from power. Number of other activist gave short speeches and read poems. We were also able to listen to a telephone message from Neda’s mom that had been prepared for this special occasion.
