They Can Take Anything But Our Spirit

How many Indigenous People, for that matter, all oppressed people can Identify with this?

This video is from Nico Pitney’s live-blogging of the Iranian election protests on Huffington Post.
During the night, protestors shout “Allaho Akbar” to one another, as a sign that their protest still lives.
Part way through the video, a woman speaks. This is a translation of what she is saying:
The woman in this video is saying something that really touched me. She is saying that they can take our phones, our internet, all our communication away, but we are showing that by saying “allaho akbar” we can find each other. She ends it my saying that tonight they are crying out to god for help.
It sends chills down my back. I have so much respect and admiration for the courage of the Iranian people.
