TO ORGANIZERS AND ACTIVISTS
ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND AROUND THE WORLD:
Consider as soon
as possible if you can organize a STOP WAR ON IRAN protest in
your locality during the weekend of August 2 – 3. Let us
know so that your protest can be listed.
The U.S. occupation
of Iraq and Afghanistan is hated by the people there. These wars
have no support at home and are ruining the domestic economy.
Instead of pulling out, the Bush administration is preparing for
still another war—this time against Iran . This must be
TOWARDS IRAN IS ESCALATING
On June 4, George
Bush, with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert at his side, called
Iran a “threat to peace.” Two days before, acting
as a proxy for the Pentagon, Israel used advanced U.S. fighter
planes to conduct massive air maneuvers, which the media called
a “dress rehearsal” for an attack on Iran ’s
nuclear facility. Under pressure from the U.S. , the European
Union announced sanctions against Iran on June 23; a bill is before
Congress for further U.S. sanctions on Iran and even a blockade
of Iran .
Iran as a “nuclear
threat” is as much a hoax as Bush’s claim of “weapons
of mass destruction” in Iraq used to justify the war there.
The International Atomic Energy Agency, which inspects Iran ’s
nuclear facilities, says it has no weapons program and is developing
nuclear power for the days when its oil runs out. Even Washington
’s 16 top spy agencies issued a joint statement that said
Iran does not have nuclear weapons technology!
U.S. and Israel are
the real nuclear danger. The Pentagon has a huge, nuclear-capable
naval armada in the Persian/Arabian Gulf, with guns aimed at Iran
. Israel , the Pentagon’s proxy force in the Middle East
, has up to 200 nuclear warheads and has never signed the Nuclear
Non-Proliferation Treaty. Iran did sign it.
While billions of
dollars go to war, at home the unemployment rate had the biggest
spike in 23 years. Home foreclosures and evictions are increasing;
fuel and food prices are through the roof. While the situation
is growing dire for many, Washington ’s cuts to domestic
programs continue. A new U.S. war will bring only more suffering.
WHAT WE DO
RIGHT NOW CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
While the summer is
a difficult time to call protests, the August recess of Congress
gives the White House an opportunity for unopposed aggression
against Iran . We must not let this happen! From the anti-war
movement and all movements for social change, to religious and
grassroots organizations, unions and schools, let us join forces
to demand “No war on Iran, U.S. out of Iraq, Money for human
needs not war! “
This call to action
is issued by StopWarOnIran.org, a network of thousands of concerned
activists and organizations fighting to stop a new war against
Iran since March 2006.
