Candle light vigil in Ottawa on the Parliament Hill (June 25,09)

On June 25, 09 at the Parliament Hill a lot of people participated in a candle light vigil for Neda Agha Soltan who was killed by the bassiji forces in Tehran. The ceremony was held by the National Council of Resistance of Iran. NCRI wants a free election under the supervision of the United Nationas in Iran. It was a very nice memorial for Neda and yet very moving. People were crying with the soft music by Nader Golchin in the background. Some people were angry and frustrated about the situation in Iran. There was a young man who said he wished to be in Iran, so he could help the people. Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the president elect of the NCRI has called on the west to cut diplomatic, political and economical relations with the Iranian regime. The same ceremony was held in NCRI headquarter in Paris. Following her invite for a ceremony on the 7th night of Neda's death, there were similar ceremonies in 59 different cities.
