Voice for the Voiceless: Nazanin Afshin-Jam @ TEDxVancouver

Voice for the Voiceless: Nazanin Afshin-Jam @ TEDxVancouver
by Darius Kadivar

For as long as she can remember, Nazanin Afshin-Jam has had people tell her what she couldn't do, and then she did it anyway. Sharing the story of a personal mission to save a teenage girl from death row in Iran, she demonstrates that the power of the individual is stronger than we are commonly led to believe, and urges each of us to stand up for those whose voices are smothered under ruthless authoritarian regimes.

Finally someone who tells the word the exact truth about iranians situation !

I admire her so much.... Intelligent, Cultivée,Altruist,Generous (and of course beautiful)

her efforts are much more valuable then niac or other pseudo-intello, she have no agenda back in her mind..... just freedom for her compatriots !

A role model for any iranian girl ! (dans la lignée de Farrokhroo Parsa, Mahnaz Afkhami .....)
