Join Medea Benjamin to discuss her brand new book Inside Iran; the Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic. The book tackles the contradictions in Iran’s system of government, traces the history of its stormy relationship with the United States, and presents a realistic and hopeful case for the two nations’ future. And with President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran deal, this conversation could not be more important!
Medea will also talk about CODEPINK’s new Divest from the War Machine campaign and how we can move our cities, universities, pension funds and politicians to stop supporting companies that make a killing on killing.
This event features Joanna Macy, Medea Benjamin, musician Betsy Rose, and brief presentations on divestment campaigns, as well as an organic vegetarian potluck dinner, live music, and a dessert reception following the program to benefit Codepink Golden Gate Chapter.
