 We read little in the mainstream press about secular movements for  democracy in places like Iraq, Pakistan, and Egypt, but they are there--led by workers, women, and others.  Bill Resnick talks with anthropologist Kamran Ali who identifies some of these democratic forces and how they have been stymied by US-supported dictators. Ali teaches at the University of Texas and is on the editorial board of Middle East Reports.
