Waging Nonviolence is participating in a teach-in on Iran at New York University’s Tisch School this Sunday, May 2nd. The event begins at 1pm with an introductory panel on the current situation in Iran. Then at 2pm, Eric and I will be taking part in an hour-long workshop on the politics of the Green Movement. I will be talking about strategies, tactics and ways for the movement to gain new traction, while Eric will confront the issue of economics within the movement and the importance of preventing a neoliberal agenda from taking hold. There will then be a short break with refreshments, followed by a keynote from Iranian historian Ervand Abrahamian.
