Less than one week after they poured into the streets for the Global Day of Action, Iranians in New York gathered again in Union Square to mark the 40th day since the death of Neda Agha-Soltan, a 26 year-old killed in broad daylight shortly after the controversial election.

Attendees held signs of Neda over their faces and sat in almost total silence for two hours. As the sun set, green and white candles were lit and roses laid in front of the crowd. A saxophone capped off the silence at 9:30 p.m.
