Satrapi on Iran

Marjane Satrapi, Iranian exile and author of the phenomenal Persepolis, writes in the NYT about the Iranian uprising. 

From now on, nobody will judge Iranians by their so-called elected president.

From now on, Iranians are fearless. They have regained their self-confidence.

Despite all the dangers they said NO!

And I’m convinced this is just the beginning.

You can also read Persepolis 2.0: a work by other Iranian exiles that charts recent events in Iran based on Satrapi’s original line drawings.

Viva la revolution.
