Did you hear what Ahmadinejad responded to the BBC reporter when asked about his 120+ entourage to New York? Did he say “@oh khordan”? We hate to correct this when it comes to Mahmoud, but according to the same BBC reporter, he actually just said “Oh oh!”
Character assassination is a dirty part of politics and in San Francisco, the Iranian American elected Sheriff, Ross Mirkarimi is less than a week away from potentially losing his job because of his misconduct in a conflict with his wife which caused a bruise on her arm. The decision by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors which he used to serve on, happens next Tuesday Oct 9th.
Ross Mirkarimi helped organize Nowruz Festivals in San Francisco and San Jose, and helped Iranians organize the largest protest of human rights violations in Iran. If you are interested in showing your support, there is a petition you can sign and a rally you can attend in San Francisco next Tuesday.
Farzad and Hooshang cover current events, invite Ross for an interview (Full Interview Available Here), introduce a new music segment, and also talk to Amy Malek of IAAB about the upcoming conference at UCLA.
