NOV 5th, Vienna: Discussion „Rouhani’s & Khamenei’s Iran“

Farzan, Bahrami and Grigat on human rights, nuclear program and regional expansion

The coalition STOP THE BOMB will be hosting a panel discussion on Wednesday, November 5th, 7pm, at Depot, Breite Gasse 3, 1070 Vienna, on "Rouhani’s & Khamenei’s Iran" with Saba Farzan, Hiwa Bahrami and Stephan Grigat. The event will be chaired by Helmar Dumbs who is an editor at the foreign desk of the Austrian daily "Die Presse".

After more than one year into Hassan Rouhani’s presidency and ahead of the looming nuclear deadline, the participants will have a closer look on the reality in Iran: What is actually left of the "promises for reform"? What is the current status of the nuclear program and the negotiations with the West? Which role does the situation in Syria and Iraq play for the Iranian regime’s regional expansion?

Saba Farzan is a German-Iranian journalist, an Advisory Board Member of "Stand for Peace" and the Deputy Chair of Liberal Women in Berlin. Hiwa Bahrami represents the Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan (PDKI) in Austria and Germany and was several times in northern Iraq where he witnessed the Kurdish fight against ISIS. Stephan Grigat is the Scientific Director of STOP THE BOMB and author of "Die Einsamkeit Israels. Zionismus, die israelische Linke und die iranische Bedrohung" (Israel's Loneliness. Zionism, the Israeli Left and the Iranian Threat).
