"The U.S. Hegemonic Project, the Middle East, and the Future of Iran"
Dr. Parsa Benab, a Professor of Political Science at Strayer University and editor of Iran Bulletin, will discuss the geo-strategic importance and future of Iran and how the characteristics and nature of the resistance there compare to the resistance in Iraq and Palestine.
When the U.S. denounces the Islamic Republic of Iran’s reactionary regime, why don’t progressive movements within Iran support U.S. intervention? Who in Iran is in favor of intervention, and why? What will happen if the U.S. tries to expand its program of "democratic" occupation across the Middle East? As struggle and resistance spread throughout the Middle East and the rest of the world against the imperial project of the U.S. ruling elite, the credibility of the U.S. suffers.
The program will be broadcast live on Mid-Peninsula Community Media Cable Channel 27 and rebroadcast throughout June as part of the ongoing "Other Voices" television series produced by PPJC.
Free and open to the public; sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center. Co-sponsored by the Iranian Society for Human Rights and South Bay Mobilization.
