 Southside Park Cohousing Presents: An Evening with MEDEA BENJAMIN, Political Activist / Author Speaking on her latest book: Inside Iran: The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran. “As I travel around the country speaking about my new book I explain how the consequences of the 1953 CIA coup that overthrew Iran’s democratically elected government persist to this day. There would probably never have been an Islamic revolution in 1979 or a decades-long conflict between Iranian leaders and the west. Now we are poised at another critical moment in history. President Trump’s reckless move of withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal exacerbates conflicts in the Middle East, alienates us from our European allies and increases the possibilities of a catastrophic, senseless war with Iran.
The event will include a potluck beginning at 6:00 pm followed by Medea at 7:00 pm
Southside Park Cohousing.
Common House  434 T St., (immediately behind 440 T St.)

The is event is co-sponsored by Veterans For Peace,  CodePink
