Ghazaleh Chelavi, was 32 years old from Amol, graduated in Bank Management. Ghazaleh loved hiking, traveling, and reading novels.
She was a competent climbing athlete and had climbed many of Iran`s high mountains including Damavand and Alamkuh, as well as many others close to her home city.
She was shot in the head while recording a video of protests. The camera in her hands recorded her last moments after she was shot and fell on the ground.
She was in a coma for 5 days after being shot before she lost her life. She had wished to be an organ donor, but officials did not let this happen. “They did not want her to be remembered as a legend,” Ghazaleh`s aunt explains.
The officials refused to give Ghazaleh`s body to her family and threatened not to speak out. In her `Chehelom` (mourning gathering)on 6 November, people gathered, danced, and burnt headscarves. “It could be seen in her eyes that she wanted to show her courage and spread it,” her aunt said.
