It was not yet February 14th when Mohammad Mokhtari, 22, changed his Facebook profile picture. He uploaded the “25 Bahman” (February 14th) logo. Mohammad was going to the demonstration. He was tired and unhappy. In his last Facebook status, he wrote: “Oh God, please give me the honor to die on my feet, for I am tried of living seated and degraded”. Saneh Jaleh was a fine arts student. He had dreams. He was Kurdish. He wanted to serve his land like Bahman Qobadi [film director]. He also wanted to attend the protests.
On Monday, two protesters who attended the February 14h rallies to support Egypt and Tunisia were shot and killed by government security forces, according to the Human Rights House of Iran (RAHANA).
