Zócalo Public Square :: What Would a Persian Spring Mean for LA?

A Zócalo/UCLA event on June 7 at 7:30 PM

 

Moderated by Shiva Falsafi, Lecturer, UCLA Dept. of Women’s Studies

 

"In 2009, after Iran held elections that were widely seen as having been rigged, the country broke out in protests that subsided only after weeks of harsh suppression. Last year, similar protests broke out in the Arab world, movements that culminated in reform in several nations, including Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya. Now, hopes are running high for reform in Iran."

 

"What would this mean for L.A., with its hundreds of thousands of Iranian exiles? Would many Angelenos leave the country? Would the economies of Tehran and L.A. become closely intertwined? And, what role would Iranian-Angelenos play in a new Iran?"

 

Writer and activist Amir Soltani, entrepreneur and philanthropist Sharon S. Nazarian, and acting director of Iranian Studies at UCLA M. Rahim Shayegan visit Zócalo to discuss what the dream of a Persian Spring might mean for Los Angeles.

 

Zócalo Public Square connects people to ideas and to each other in an open, accessible, non-partisan and broad-minded spirit.

"On March 11, 2011, a devastating 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit the coast of northeastern Japan, triggering a tsunami that sent waves as far as six miles inland. This traveling exhibition commemorates the victims and the struggles of the survivors, and highlights the reconstruction and recovery efforts."

 

"Featuring a series of large-scale photographs and photographic essays in text and audio form, the exhibition—scheduled to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the quake—focuses on the stories of the people recovering from the disaster in the Tohoku area, and how the people of Japan are dealing with this difficult situation and helping one another in their day-to-day lives."
