Episode 11: Faisal Saeed Al Mutar
In episode 11 we sit down with human rights activist Faisal Saeed Al Mutar. Faisal was born in Iraq in 1991 and lived under both the totalitarian regimes of Saddam Hussein and the Islamists who took over in the aftermath of the US invasion in 2003. After leaving Iraq he eventually came to the US as a refugee, intent upon spreading humanist values and reforming the religion of his home country, Islam. We talk about his experiences and his plans for the future, as well as what the year 2016 meant to all of us.
