It lasts for just 37 seconds, but during that time you see the death of a young woman named Neda Soltani. The video begins as she collapses just after she was shot, and by the time the clip has finished she is dead.
WARNING: This is a very disturbing video.
YouTube and Google have been removing copies of the clip, so I don’t expect this particular one to last very long. However, it has gone viral now, so it’s not going to disappear.
The blurb accompanying it gives Maryam Namazie as the source for the video, and also says this:

Neda, a young woman who was watching the protests in Tehran yesterday morning was shot dead by the regimes baseeji militia. Yesterday, along with Neda, 30 others were killed and 300 wounded. There are reports that the security forces were arresting the wounded from their hospital beds. Ali Khamanei is personally responsible for Nedas death and the death of protestors. Yesterday, the peoples solidarity was truly immense. They provided support, gave shelter and offered food to the protesters all day until late at night. Demonstrations took place, in many parts of Tehran, Shiraz, Rasht, Isfahan. According to the WPI Press Office, Neda’s surname is Soltani; she is an employee of Rademan Airways.
Years ago I forced myself to watch one of the jihad beheading videos, because I wanted to make sure that I always remember: This is the enemy. This is what we are fighting against. It is the antithesis of everything we are and believe in.
The Neda Soltani video serves a similar purpose. It’s unbearably tragic and heartbreaking to watch, but it reminds us of what Iran’s regime — and the man respectfully referred to as the “Supreme Leader” by Barack Hussein Obama — is really all about.
