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. We discussed:
** 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?
We heard from author Nasrin Parvaz, Yassamine Mather (Hands Off the People of Iran) and David Miller (Palestine Declassified).
