the whole world is listening: poem for the rootops of iran (video)

This poignant poetry was recorded by a woman on June 19
as she filmed the rooftop shouting of Allah O Akbar (God is Great!).
During the current uprising in Iran, the traditional call to prayer —
and one-time revolutionary chant–has become a cry for freedom .
Listen! as you read the subtitles.
