On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Professor Seyed Mohammad Marandi of the University of Tehran. He discusses ongoing negotiations with the US to restart the Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) and the impact of American sanctions on Tehran. He also talks about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, why Iran opposes the invasion, and the consequences for US hegemony and the unipolar world order. Finally, we speak to Richard Falk, professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University and the former UN special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories. He discusses the international reaction against Russia over the invasion of Ukraine, double standards and hypocrisy over the lack of action against the US and its NATO allies regarding multiple wars in the Middle East, contrasting reactions from the US and NATO over the plight of Ukrainians versus the plight of Syrians and Palestinians, and much more.
