Cultures of Resistance Network


GUEST: Iara Lee, activist, filmmaker, and founder of the Cultures of Resistance Network, talks about her recent film entitled "The Suffering Grasses," which explores the Syrian conflict.

Iara is a forceful personality. Her take on Syria will please few people. Of course, she discounts US human rights posturing as blatant propaganda. But she also refuses to endorse the views of some on the left who describe the current regime in Syria as acceptable. How refreshing not to be lied to. 

Iara has an interesting history of putting her life on the line to get the real story. Here is a photo she took in Mazar-e Sharif, Afghanistan. 

We hope to have her back on the show at some time.
