Ardeshir T. Ommani, Political Economist, has been an activist in the anti-war and anti-imperialist struggle for over 40 years, including the Vietnam War. Ardeshir is co-founder of the American-Iranian Friendship Committee (AIFC), and Chairman of the StopWarOnIran Campaign. He has written a number of articles documenting the U.S. foreign policy towards Iran. He has translated many articles into Farsi, which have been published inside Iran in the progressive press. In the 1960's, he was a co-founder of the Iranian Students Association (ISA), training many students in political theory and activism which contributed to the struggle against the Shah of Iran, a U.S. puppet. Mr. Ommani returned to Iran in 1979, at the dawn of the revolution and participated in the revolutionary surge of that period. Since returning to the U.S. in 1980, he has been very active in the anti-war movement and in the struggle against the U.S. war and occupation of Iraq.
