ندا صالحی آقا سلطان
Nedā Sālehi Āġā-Soltān; 1982 – June 20, 2009
Diese der ermordeten Neda gewidmeten Zeilen fand Ü. K. auf dem Blog »Tazahorate Ma«, der über die Proteste im Iran berichtet
To my Iranian sisters
They tried to put you down by veiling your hair,
but they can never veil your mind.
They tried to weaken you by beating your body,
but they can never weaken your will.
They tried to make you silent by taking your rights,
but they underestimated your silent screams.
And now you fight back,
with all the bravery that is inside you
and with all the patience that helped you to survive.
We will never forget
what you have done for your people,
what you have done for us,
and the next generation will think of you
in love and the deepest respect.
They tried to put you down,
but instead they gave you wings.
And they will regret.
