Egyptians for Neda

From the Daily News, an image of anti-riot police preventing Egyptian protestors from commemorating the death of Neda Agha-Soltan in Cairo on Saturday.

It kind of reminds you, when Cairo's streets were full of battles between protestors and security over elections or the movement for judges in 2006, and all the subsequent elections that were fraudulent - where was the outrage?
