Session 6: Sunday, June 3rd: 12:00 - 1:50pm
In 1979, the Iranian Revolution overturned a key pro-US power in the Middle East. Since then Washington has sought to overthrow the Iranian government, as it did before in 1953. The US has used crippling economic sanctions, internal subversion, and threats of war. Little known about the Islamic Republic of Iran are the progressive changes made in the country, such as programs to eliminate poverty, improving the rights of women. Dan Kovalik will discuss his new book now coming out on Iran. Sara Flounders will discuss the movement to stop a US war on Iran. Ben Norton will review the genocidal US-Saudi war on Yemen.
