An indepth look into life in modern Iran and the history for why the US, Israel and their allies are so antagonistic towards the Islamic Republic and seek regime change
Medea Benjamin is a cofounder of the anti-war feminist organization Codepink and a co-founder of the international human rights organization Global Exchange.  For over 20 years she has been been one of our nation’s most high profile leaders and advocate in the movement for humanitarian, civil and social justice. In 2005 she was among other exemplary women nominated to receive a collective  Peace Prize for their efforts to promote peace and received the Gandhi Peace Award in 2014.  She has been at the forefront of protesting the war efforts of Bush and Obama and now the further escalation of violence under Trump. In the past, Medea has organized humanitarian aid for war refugees in Lebanon and in 2011 she sailed on the US peace flotilla to Gaza and led delegations to deliver medical supplies during Israel’s Pillar of Defense campaign. Medea is the author of almost 10 books, the most recent being “Inside Iran: The Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic of Iran” which is a superb primer for modern Iran’s history, its government structure, life in Iran and human rights, and more recent conflicts between Iran and other nations, notably the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia.
