Inspired by the tragic video of Neda, a young Iranian woman apparently killed during protests on the streets of Tehran, a Canadian singer and songwriter named Johnny Maudlin has written a song called "Neda (You Will Not Defeat The People)."
"If John Kennedy was alive today, he would say, 'I am an Iranian!' Maudlin writes in a message accompanying his YouTube video. "A woman called Neda died on the streets of Tehran this weekend. This is the real cost of freedom. This is not something many of us understand, I don't think. I have not felt this moved in my memory. Long live Neda!"
