Several of my friends on Facebook have posted the infamous video of Neda Soltan lying bleeding on a Tehran street. Column-inches of comment by those who have seen it are filling the old and new media.
I refuse to watch.
Isn’t it enough that a young woman is dead? Do we have to be voyeurs before we can feel sympathy? Or is it just our desire to rubber-neck at a road accident, transposed into a new medium?
