“This is Not Another Revolution. This is a Civil Rights Movement”

In Iran, supporters of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi have called for another protest in Tehran today in defiance of the government ban. At least nineteen demonstrators have been killed in the ten days since the election of June 12th. The government continues to detain journalists and activists and has set up a special court for demonstrators. We speak with Columbia University Professor Hamid Dabashi. He writes, “I see the moment we are witnessing as a civil rights movement rather than a push to topple the regime.”

Words of wisdom by Dabashi. Thanks for posting Goodman-Dabashi interview while we are witnessing the reorganization/re-activation of warmongers and the Israel Lobby.
