Iran celebrates the 43rd anniversary of its Islamic Revolution. This episode of The Communiqué deals with one of the most consequential events in modern political history.
Irans Islamic Revolution of 1979 continues to shape not just Irans socio-political makeup, but that of the entire Middle East, and even the world. A crucial value of the Revolution is helping the oppressed vanquish the oppressor. This belief is alive and well in Irans foreign policy, as Iran continues to support the Syrian, Palestinian, Lebanese, Venezuelan and Yemeni resistance against imperialism and neocolonialism.
Richard Medhurst, host of The Communiqué, sits down with John Wight, writer, and political commentator, to discuss the importance and accomplishments of Irans Islamic Revolution.
