From Inside Iran to Standing Rock:
No to War and Yes to Decolonization!
Tuesday, May 22, 2018
7:00 – 9:30 p.m.
Room 150, Eaton Humanities Building
University of Colorado – Boulder
Free and open to the public
Hear an esteemed panel of Middle East experts discussing current relations with Iran and how we can work for peace and decolonization globally.
According to General Wesley Clark, a few days after 9/11 a general at the Pentagon told him that the Bush administration had plans to
“take down seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, then Syria and Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off with Iran.”
The long-planned military subjugation of Iran is the linchpin in this global domination project. We support peaceful campaigns such as this one organized by Iranian-American Moji Agha and hope you will too.
