Medea Benjamin & Stephen Zunes: Peacemaker’s delegation to Iran

America’s long fraught relationship with Iran has gotten more dangerous with Trump’s saber rattling and his revocation of the non-proliferation deal struck by the Obama Administration.

Codepink leader (and Global Exchange co-founder), Medea Benjamin and University of San Francisco Middle East specialist Stephen Zunes, are freshly back from a large people-to-people delegation to Iran.

View this webinar for an in-depth report-back from their trip.  They will share stories heard and perspectives gained from their encounters with Iranians from all walks of life — including the Foreign Minister. Hear how hostile US policies like Trump’s travel ban and renewed economic sanctions are impacting ordinary Iranians. Stephen and Medea will also tell the story of the how the FBI “welcomed” them home.

Moderated by Andrea “Drea” Hightower, Middle East Reality Tours Director at Global Exchange.

    This was great and I will send the video out to my various lists.

    I went to Iran via Global Exchange last October.
    Going to Iran (and reporting back!) is the best thing Americans can do to prevent a US/Iraeli attack on Iran…

    And insisting that all US presidential candidates agree to bring the US back to the JCPOA is essential !
