Iran Project [Institute for Policy Studies]

The Iran Project at the Institute for Policy Studies is part of the broad movement rising against the possibility of a U.S. military strike on Iran. It is preparing a popular, accessible primer on U.S.-Iran relations that will start with the recent crisis and provide a quick and easy chronology including the U.S. overthrow of the democratically elected president in 1953, U.S. support for years of the Shah of Iran's repression, and U.S. hostility to the Islamic government in Iran. It will give an overview of Iran's role in the region and in the world, including Iran's oil and U.S. desire to control it. And it will of course analyze today's tensions--including a potential crisis that has not quite ended despite the new intelligence finding that Iran does NOT have a nuclear weapons program.

Support from our foundation helped produce a hard-copy version of the pamphlet for broad national and international distribution beyond the reach of online material. It is distributed through church-based and peace organizations, in communities, and in schools and trade unions across the United States.
