In the next season of Dot Citizen, we're diving into human rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
With the 2009 Green Revolution, Iranians paved the way for a new world of technology, activism, and protest. At the time, it seemed as if it was a sign technology would bring a new flourishing of human rights. But since then, we've seen how technology has been increasingly used by governments to circumvent and limit human rights. No more so than in Iran.
Chrisella Herzog and Zachary Stickney introduce the season by discussing their background with Iran issues, and how they both came to be interested in the topic. Then they introduce our interviewees this season.
