HOPI chair Yassamine Mather takes part in a debate on the wave of protest hitting Iran, along with author Nasrin Parvaz, David Miller (Palestine Declassified), and others.
“With tens of thousands of Iranians protesting on the streets, we were joined by three commentators who have been following the events closely – and who have very different views on the nature and the reasons for the protests.
** Should socialists support the protests or are they an example of an attempt to create ‘regime change from above’?
** Should we urge our own governments to intervene in support of the protests?
** Is the government of Iran an example of a non- or even anti-imperialist regime? Does that meant we should support it?
