The event was moderated by Iranian American Goudarz Eghtedari, Ph.D., who after a few brief comments introduced the guest speakers.|
I didn't tape all the speakers, but here is a list of those who appear in the program.
Rev. Kate Lore, First Unitarian Church
Martin Gonzales, Latin America Solidarity Activist and PPS Board member
Hala Gores, Palestinian American
Dr. Catherine Thomason, Physicians for Social Responsibility
Mazen Malek, Palestinians United
Tom Hastings, Portland State University
Mayor Sam Adams
Besides these speakers, a Resolution by Sam Adams was read declaring that day an official Portland day of Solidarity with the people of Iran.
The video is about 30 minutes in length. Many of the speakers urge Americans to support the Iranian people in their struggle, emphasizing that it is their struggle, and that all we can do is encourage them and emulate their strength and determination.
