16 year old girl executed for "acts incompatible w chastity"
Today, a few weeks after the election, the situation in Iran is still tense and unresolved as the forces of democratic reform confront the forces of the clerical militaristic dictatorship behind closed doors and in protests on the streets. If you were confused about the stakes, here's a docu-music video about the appalling Iranian custom of executing young girls for "acts incompatible with chastity". As of 2007, there are 75 children on death row in Iran. This video is about the case against, and the execution of, Atefah Rafavi Sahaaleh, age 16.
