Organizer/AuthorPeninsula Peace & Justice Center
Dr. Ali Ferdowsi
Chair, History and Political Science Dept., Notre Dame de Namur University

A native of Iran, Dr. Ferdowsi was in Iran from the first week of June through the first week of July, watching and participating in the election and the protests that followed it. We will discuss, among other things, why an election that was poised to be a routine exercise in a limited democracy turned into a mass protest against a fraudulent election which met with a bloody response by the security and paramilitary forces. What do the protesters want? What does this mean for the future of the Islamic Republic? And what can we do as Americans to side with the Iranian people in their century old yearning for democracy and human rights?
