Seminar: What did we learn from the Mahsa movement?

One year has passed since the Iranian people made a brave uprising against the totalitarian Islamic regime in Iran. Although the Iranian government succeeded in suppressing the people, the uprising was far from a failure. Most importantly, it has taught people a lot of lessons. These lessons can be used to succeed in the future if they are nurtured and shared.
