    The plan is for this website to exist as a centralized place for friends and family of those who have been killed in the protests in Iran and other Middle Eastern nations to post stories and memorials for their loved ones.

    We very badly need translators (especially Farsi and Arabic), writers, researchers, moderators, and people to help spread the word so we can start collecting submissions. We'll be using a moderated wiki format to screen out obvious trolls, but otherwise submissions can be entirely anonymous. If you'd like to help out, please post here or come find us on anonnet irc (#wedonotforget).

    I could probably recruit a non-Anon Arabic translator and a non-Anon Farsi translator to help out. They would not be into any kind of trolling or shenanigans, though, and they must remain completely anonymous - I won't namefag them to anyone. They're srsbusiness types, and well-respected in their communities. Both of them are fluent in English and their native languages.

    Since I don't/won't do IRC, now what?

    You might want to reach out to universities. Who knows - there may be professors who could assign this kind of project to their Arabic Language students or to poli-sci students who are dual-linguistic as an assignment or something. Just a thought.

    I have some friends and twitter followers who speak Arabic as a first language, so sent out Rockyj's message. Hopefully gets some takers.

    Great site and idea! I notice that Yemen is not listed on the "Countries of Interest" (left side of home page) but it is listed under the "Conflicts" page. Might want to add it to the left front-page list?

    Wonderful idea. I would translate for Russian but nothing happens there.
    Rest in Peace.
