On Saturday afternoon, Nushi Nazemi marked the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx's birth by laying a wreath at his London tomb.
Nazemi, 67, grew up in a Marxist family in Tehran and served time in prison in Iran for her communist involvement against the Islamic regime. And to honor the philosopher behind the anti-capitalist activism of her youth, she paid 4 pounds (about $5.40) to enter the Highgate Cemetery.
"I am OK with it," Nazemi said, regarding the admission fee. "For keeping the environment safe and clean, they have to actually have some budget."
