Join our panel of experts as we discuss the recent national uprising in Iran and provide a comprehensive perspective on the background of the crisis. What do Iranians want and why are they fighting empty-handed in the streets with the armed government forces? We will discuss Iran's Gen Z leadership in the protests, the role of women and girls in this movement, and how the global community can support the people in Iran.
