‘Education Under Fire’ screening to be held Nov. 17

Baha’is of San Diego is the the largest religious minority in Iran and they have been subjected to persecution for the last 30-plus years, according to its members. The latest injustice happening in Iran is that the government of Iran is prohibiting the Baha’i youth from attending colleges and universities in Iran just because they are Baha’is, members say.

To increase awareness of this latest injustice, the Baha’is all round the world have organized a campaign to publicize what is being done to the young men and women who seek higher education in Iran. This campaign is called “Education Under Fire.” They are presenting a free screening of a short film detailing the human rights abuses denying education in Iran, including a panel discussion.

This event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 2-5 p.m. at the Cardiff by the Sea Public Library (2081 Newcastle Ave., Cardiff, CA, 92007.
