The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s September 2013 TV program about Iran is informative and still timely because of the U.S. government’s continuing hostility to that nation.
Iran is often in the news, but much of what the US’s news media and politicians say grossly inaccurate. Much of it is mean-spirited and downright harmful.
The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s September 2013 TV program:
• Reviews Iran’s history
• Provides for context for understanding what is really happening now.
• Corrects some of the misinformation we’ve been hearing for many years.
• Suggests more constructive ways to promote peace with Iran.
This TV interview features two exceptionally well informed Iranian-American guests.

For a number of years he has worked on a variety of issues and activities, including, peace, climate, and Occupy movements within the U.S., and also in Iran’s nonviolent Green Movement for democracy, justice and civil spirituality.
