From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed professor Hamed Mousavi of the University of Tehran on the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Iranian revolution. It begins with some history of the country including the US/UK coup in 1953, which gave the western powers each 40% of oil revenues.

Locus Focus
Last week over 1,000 people from across the Pacific Northwest attended a public hearing in Longview, Washington, to comment on the draft supplemental environmental impact statement for the worlds largest methanol refinery, proposed for the Port of Kalama. Project supporters, wearing white scarves, sat at the periphery of a sea of red shirts worn by the projects opponents. 64 people testified against building the methanol refinery while 27 testified in support. About half of the supporters were local elected officials. Most of the other supporters represented unions for the building trades, who see this refinery as an opportunity for much needed jobs. Opponents on the other hand raise a myriad of environmental, health, economic and social reasons for not building the refinery. On this episode of Locus Focus, we hear excerpts from this hearing, presenting testimony from opponents and proponents of Northwest Innovation Works proposed methanol refinery in Kalama.
