    • Society & Culture

A special edition of Roqe focusing on the environmental crisis in the Khuzestan region of Iran, and the bloody crackdown on those raising their voices for the basic human needs of clean water. Jian is joined by scientist and writer, Kaveh Madani, who was prophetic in coining the term “water bankruptcy” in regards to Iran long before the latest crisis. He discusses the roots of the mismanagement of water distribution in Iran, environmental justice, and the paradox of deprivation and underdevelopment in oil-rich Khuzestan. Then Ahvaz-born journalist and former Editor-in-Chief of Kayhan newspaper (1972-1979) Amir Taheri joins Jian from Paris to discuss the pattern of brutal clampdown in Khuzestan and across Iran on those protesting the current regime, and the elements of a failed state.
