Sunday, July 21, Workers World Party in Atlanta is hosting a showing of the documentary, “American Coup,” about the CIA manufactured overthrow of the democratically elected government of Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953. This film exposes the intentions of British and US oil companies and politicians to maintain control of Iranian oil at any cost. The return of the US-backed Shah brought years of repression, corruption and imperialist domination to the people of Iran. This is a history opponents of war need to know.
