On the 50th Anniversary of the CIA Coup that overthrew the democratically elected leader of Iran, Dr. Mohammed Mosadegh
New College of San Francisco and Not in Our Name Presents:
- Anatomy of a Coup; The CIA in Iran
- End Of Empire ( British Perspective of 1953 CIA Coup in Iran )
"Two documentaries Follow by Q&A"
Come and see for yourself how the US and British Foreign Policy in Middle East conspired to destroy democracy in Iran for oil, resulting in 50 years of dictatorship in Iran.
For nearly five decade, the American and British role in the US CIA Coup, that ousted Iran’s elected prime minister, and returned the Shah to power, has been lost to history. A copy of the Central Intelligence Agency’s still- secret document of the coup was leaked to the New York Times in 2000, revealing the inner workings of the plan that set the stage for the Islamic revolution in 1979.
