Graphic Video: Iranian Woman Killed In Protest June 20, 2009

Posted by on Jun 20, 2009 in Celebrity News, Politics, Videos | 3 comments

Saturday in Tehran, Iran and Iranian woman was shot to death, and the event was captured on video and uploaded to youtube.

We have to stand up and show our support for the Iranian Opposition Protest. A young woman was killed today by authorities while exercising her freedom of speech and her right to protest. This video is sad, and very graphic, but it’s reality. Why is it important? Remember what our aunts, uncles, and grandparents went through during the Civil Rights Movement. Well a movement may be on the way in Iran with Mir-Hossein Mousavi supporters, and if you have a voice you need to show your support, and encourage the young leaders to fight for what they believe in.

Warning: Video contains graphic images:

UPDATE: The girl in the video was named Neda. She was only 16 years of age, and was attending the protest with her father. She died from a gun shot wound to the heart fired by a member of the Iranian Basij militia.

When news broke that Christina and The Dream hooked up, rumors began circulating that Milian was only f*cking  for tracks (excuse my french) in order to reboot her career. In her defense, fiancee , The Dream had this to say!

“She has a lot of stuff going on in the movie world and actually on TV. Somebody just gave her a lot of bread, and you don’t make enough money in the radio and R&B world, you know when it gets to that particular point. Somebody show up in her house with 10 million [dollars], and then you got a blog full of haters that’s trying to make sure that your sh*t don’t come out, it’s like what you gon’ do? Let me see, Paramount Pictures wants to give me 10 million, or I got to try to beat my head in the ground to prove something to the n*ggas that are going to give me five dollars. You gon’ take that $10 million and ride out. ‘Cause I need a new Phantom, so I want her to take that 10 million.”

Props to him for wanting to defend his woman! However, he could have been a little more tactful and not reveal how much she’s getting paid!

The couple is said to be planning a engagement party to take place in the Bahamas!
