Iran: Elections, Power and Protest
Theresa Mitchell of Presswatch is on break this week and next. Instead we hear a special 1-hour "Fight the Empire" show with Per Fagereng. The topic is Iran: Elections, Power and Protest. The guest is Muhammed Sahimi, professor of chemical engineering at the University of Southern California. Several of his articles about the election are available at: http://tehranbureau.com/?s=+MUHAMMAD+SAHIMI .
He also recently wrote a New York Times oped titled "Iran's Power Struggle." He contrasted Iran's election system with U.S. allies like Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan.
