Larry Everest

Larry Everest has covered the Middle East and Central Asia for over 20 years for the Revolutionary Worker newspaper and other publications. He traveled to Iran in 1979 and again in 1980, shortly after the revolution that toppled the Shah. During both visits, he traveled to Iranian Kurdistan, and in 1980 was able to interview Islamic militants then holding the U.S. Embassy.

In 1986 Everest wrote Behind the Poison Cloud: Union Carbide’s Bhopal Massacre, based on his on-the-scene investigation in Bhopal, India shortly after the gas disaster. In 1988 he traveled to Palestine to cover the Palestinian people’s first intifada. In 1991, shortly after the end of the Persian Gulf War, Everest went to Iraq to document the impact of the war on the Iraqi people and filmed the award-winning video Iraq: War Against the People.

Everest’s articles have appeared in the Boston Globe, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Jose Mercury News, the Oakland Tribune, the Baltimore Sun, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, New York Newsday, Z Magazine, and other publications. He has also done radio commentary and analysis on KPFA’s Flashpoints in Berkeley, California.
