Shirin Ebadi answers questions

Washington, DC – For many Iranian Americans, Shirin Ebadi is a household name. As an Iranian lawyer and human rights activist–and the first Iranian Nobel Peace Prize recipient (2003)–her efforts are a point of pride for the Iranian-American community, many of whom hope to follow her lead.

On Thursday, May 1, between 3 and 4 p.m. ET, Ebadi will be interviewed online by David Swanson of The People Speak Radio. Iranian Americans and their American friends will be able to tune in and ask Ebadi questions. Questions can range from the human rights situation inside Iran, to Iran’s support for militant insurgence groups, to the future of US-Iran relations, and more.

You can listen live to the interview here. If you are planning to ask Ebadi a question, you’ll find instructions to enter a chat room where you can post questions. Unfortunately, The People Speak Radio will not be able to take questions by telephone during the interview.

Following the show, you can listen to the audio file here.
