Iran, Baha'i, And Working To End Oppression


Iran's relationship with the rest of the world has its ups and downs.  The country's development of nuclear power continues to cause anxiety in America and elsewhere. 

And the regime continues to cause anxiety and worse for its own people... especially religious minorities. 

As Amnesty Internationaland other groups point out, Iran severely oppresses the Baha'i and other non-Muslim groups, denying Baha'is the right to education, even torturing and killing some of them. 

Members of the Southern Oregon chapter of Amnesty International join us to talk about the situation, and Iranian journalist Maziar Bahari's film about it.
