The United States is about to release the frozen cash in some Iranians’ bank accounts, saying Tehran has kept to the interim deal over its nuclear programme. Yassamine Mather was invited to discuss the deal on the BBC Persian Service. Note, the clip is in Farsi throughout!
HOPI’s Yassamine Mather outlines how the sanctions being eased today actually helped enrich many clerics in Iran.
While no substitute for being in the room and taking part in the day’s proceedings, a live stream of the HOPI dayschool tomorrow, Saturday 25th, will be accessible online. This is an experiment for HOPI which we hope will be useful for both Iranian comrades and others who unavoidably cannot make it on the day.
The stream will be accessible at the link below beginning at 10:30 am
