On June 28, 2012, the Granny Peace Brigade presented an Iran Teach-In, featuring Phyllis Bennis and Nima Shirazi.
Phyllis Bennis is Director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington DC. A writer, analyst and activist, she is a co-founder of the US Campaign to End Israeli Occupation and co-chair of the UN-based International Coordinating Network on Palestine, as well as the author and co-editor of eight books on US foreign policy.
Nima Shirazi is a political analyst whose commentary appears on his blog Wide Asleep in America, on Muftah.org as a co-editor of the Iran pages and in numerous online publications including Foreign Policy Journal, Monthly Review, Mondoweiss and CASMII.
Sponsored by the Peace and Justice Task Force of All Souls Church in New York City, the speakers had the benefit of a full house and lively discussion following this successful event.
