Iran is a country that has never recovered from its revolutions ... Now with a volatile relationship with Israel, and one of the most powerful leaders in the Middle East... Canada is concerned. Stephen Harper says Iran's government won't hesitate to use nuclear weapons for religious or political purposes. And although the world's eyes are on Iran, few are talking about the country's human rights record which includes arrests of activists, horrific prisoner abuse and blatant discrimination against minorities. What is the price of protest for thousands living in Iran? We'll put it in Context.
