Our tech guru Foaad has created a special page for online polls. He has twice reminded me to use it for selecting the Iranian of the year for 2008. So before it gets too late, I want to share some names with you.
I think the 2008 Iranian of the year should include the following. Note that these are SIGNIFICANT Iranians, NOT necessarily the BEST. I’m sure I’ve missed some important names, so help me out:
— Shirin Ebadi
— Students who’ve demanded freedom and democracy in public rallies at numerous universities.
— The One Million Signatures Campaign (women’s rights activists in Iran)
— Marjane Satrapi
— Mohsen Namjoo
— Hossein Derakhshan
— Six detained leaders of the Bahai faith.
— Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Who did I miss? Let me know and I will set up the poll. HERE IT IS.
