Please join us November 10, 2022 at 4:30PM PST for an online discussion of the documentary "Coup 53," with Dr. Ervand Abrahamian, Professor of History, City University of New York, and Dr. Maziar Behrooz, Professor of History, San Francisco State University.

Written and directed by Taghi Amirani, and ten years in the making, "Coup 53" tells the story of the 1953 Anglo-American coup d'etat that overthrew Iran's government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh and reinstalled the Shah. The CIA/Ml6 covert action was called "Operation Ajax" and was all about Iran's oil and who should control and benefit from it.
