Reports from Tehran say that last night in the Abadana neighborhood where 19-year-old Sohrab Arabi
(who was shot dead in the postelection unrest) lived, people lit candles in front of his house and chanted "Allah Akbar" in his honor. Many were chanting "Our Sohrab is not dead, Velayat [the rule of the supreme leader] is dead."
Here is alink to a video
on Facebook of the chants.
After Neda Agha-Soltan
, Sohrab is becoming a symbol of the protest movement that has emerged as a result of the June 12 presidential election.
Neda, Sohrab, and others who have lost their lives in the postelection crackdown are often referred to as "martyrs of the green movement."
