Medea Benjamin will speak about her work and her new book Inside Iran, which “cuts sharply through the inflammatory rhetoric surrounding U.S.-Iranian relations to present a realistic and hopeful case for the two nations’ future” and asking the question “how is it that Iran has become the primary target of American antagonism, when Saudi Arabia – a regime far more repressive – has become one of America’s closest allies?” Medea will sign copies of her book
