06.08.10 ''I am Neda...''


Neda Agha-Soltan was a young woman living in Iran - a student, who was shot in the street by government militia for participating in peaceful protests against the disputed election of Mahmoud Ahmadenijad. Her death was captured on video, uploaded to YouTube and within hours seen by millions around the world. She quickly became a symbol for the resistance and for the brutality of unchecked tyranny. People in Iran yell "I am Neda" into the street after lights out as a sign of defiance since the government has made it illegal to mourn for her.

Our goal is to tell this story to the world and to make a statement of solidarity with the people of Iran in favor of the human rights that Neda has come to represent. Please join me along with Amnesty International and view the video that was created for this project:

The singer admits that his feelings of excitement are mixed with "a little anxiety. This is a big deal for me," he adds. "It's a huge responsibility. At the same time, I'm thrilled - like a kid with a new train set... it's a mixed bag of emotions. I think it's important to have a little bit of nerve," he says. "Once I'm on stage, I'm not nervous. But just before you go on, you get that little tingling. I take what I do seriously; I don't take it for granted... See the interview here courtesy of Entertainment Tonight..."
