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.”
This event is sponosored by Veterans For Peace Chapter 69American Legion Post 315 and San Francisco CODEPINK.
Free Event. Tour Donations accepted. There will be a Reception beginning at 6:15 pm followed by Medea’s presentation at 7:00 pm.
All Welcome!

From our National Site

The national CodePink organization organizes for justice for Iraqis and to hold war criminals accountable. CodePink actively opposes the U.S. war in Afghanistan, torture, the detention center at Guantanamo, weaponized and spy drones, the prosecution of whistleblowers, U.S. support for the Israeli occupation of Palestine and repressive regimes.

Rooted in a network of local organizers, CodePink's tactics include satire, street theatre, creative visuals, civil resistance, and directly challenging powerful decision-makers in government and corporations. And, of course, wearing pink!
