Speakers: Ali Kiani, Iranian Marxist thinker and translator, with a comment by Mansoor M., Iranian cultural worker.

Trump’s war threats against Iran over the past six months, backed by Saudi Arabia and Israel, have brought the region closer toward a major war. Inside Iran, a working-class revolt has just shaken the system, challenging not only the Principalists (hardliners) but also the Reformists.  The uprising, centered in marginalized rural areas, has targeted poverty, corruption, the authoritarian state, and the regime’s costly intervention in Syria.  How can we oppose both US imperialism and the Iranian regime, while supporting emancipatory forces inside both societies and around the world?
