I first heard about her in a tweet from William Gibson (@GreatDismal) on Saturday:
“Young woman protester on her back, bleeding out. Orbit of one eye a perfect unspilled pool of blood. Image burns in, indelible. History now.”
Her name was Neda. She was caught on video just after being shot in the heart while protesting the Iran election. Who shot her is unclear, and perhaps irrelevant. She’s now the new face of revolution.
Yesterday, a link to an article featuring the video of Neda’s death showed up in my RSS feeds.
I am not brave enough to watch it.
