19497641288_19f5c2628b_z

Back in 2013, we had less reasons to hope. What we faced was an extremely repressive political climate, an illegitimate president, a defeated uprising, the shadow of war, crippling sanctions, an economy on the verge of complete collapse, and an entirely conservative regime.

Spring solstice has come and Iranians (among other nations) are celebrating the Nowrouz holidays. At the same time, Iranian calendar’s New Year has arrived, as we move from the year 1393 to 1394. Iranians are busy with travels and celebrations and visits to their family now, but what is mostly on my mind is that the next year – 1394 – is going to be a very important year for Iranians, a year which will greatly affect our future, as the conclusion to the nuclear deal and the Parliamentary and Assembly of Experts elections will happen next year.

Because of Sanctions, UMass Won’t Accept Iranian Students in Certain Programs

massachusetts-amherst___640x360_a_nocredit

The University of Massachusetts, in Amherst, has announced that it will not accept Iranians in certain academic programs and they should not apply.
