An unprecedented, sustained, vibrant uprising of the people of Iran has unleashed the people's spirits, minds, and dreams...
• What does it represent?
• How broad is the movement and what are its goals?
• What kind of regime is ruling in Iran and how did it come to power?
• Why are hundreds of peaceful protesters being killed on the streets, thousands arrested, tortured and subject to sham trials and executions?
• Who are the thousands of political prisoners in Iran’s prisons?
It’s urgent that people around the world, especially in the U.S. step up support for the uprising itself, and to oppose the repression of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
What can and should people of conscience here in the U.S. do to support the just struggle going on in Iran and stop the repression and free all political prisoners?
These and other questions will be addressed.
