THE MOSSADEGH PROJECT

Dr. Mohammad Mossadegh (1882-1967) was a lawyer, professor, author, Governor, Parliament member, Finance Minister, Foreign Minister and democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran.

Mossadegh fought both internal corruption and foreign interference, enacted social reforms and nationalized the Iranian oil industry.

In 1953, he was overthrown by a British-American coup, arrested and tried as a traitor in military tribunal court. It was the CIA’s first successful dismantling of a foreign government, and Iran has not known democracy since.
