BUILD FEB. 4 EMERGENCY DEMONSTRATION TO STOP U.S. WAR AGAINST IRAN
NO WAR! NO SANCTIONS! NO INTERVENTION! NO ASSASSINATIONS
A broad spectrum of U.S.-based anti-imperialist and anti-war organizations, including the IAC, agreed on a Jan. 17 conference call to hold coordinated protests across the country on Saturday, Feb. 4. The demands will be: “No war, no sanctions, no intervention, no assassinations against Iran.”

The ad-hoc group that took part in the call decided that although there are only two weeks to organize, it will invite anti-war forces around the world to join in to make this emergency protest a global day of action.

All agreed on the need to stop U.S. imperialism and/or Israel from launching a military attack on Iran. There was also a consensus that the new sanctions President Barack Obama signed into law on Dec. 31 — with the goal of breaking the Iranian central bank — were themselves an act of war aimed at the Iranian people. The political activists on the call raised the danger of a wider war should fighting break out in or around Iran.

While the organizations involved had varied assessments of the Iranian government, they all saw any intervention from U.S. imperialism in the Southwest Asian country as a threat to the entire region and to peace. Some of the people on the call who are originally from Iran and who were in touch with family and friends there conveyed the Iranian people’s anger at the recent assassination of a young scientist.

There was agreement to make “no assassinations” one of the demands to show solidarity with the Iranian population as well as to condemn the U.S. and its allies for criminal activities against Iran and its people.

As of Jan. 19, the organizations that called the actions or endorsed later included the United National Anti-War Coalition (UNAC), the International Action Center (IAC), SI! Solidarity with Iran, Refugee Apostolic Catholic Church, Workers World Party, World Can’t Wait, American Iranian Friendship Committee, ANSWER Coalition, Antiwar.com, Peace of the Action, ComeHomeAmerica.us, St. Pete for Peace, Women Against Military Madness (WAMM), Defenders for Freedom, Justice & Equality-Virginia, WESPAC Foundation, Peace Action Maine, Occupy Myrtle Beach, Minnesota Peace Action Coalition, Twin Cities Peace Campaign and Bail Out the People Movement (BOPM).

Individual endorsers include authors David Swanson, “When the World Outlawed War,” and Phil Wilayto, “In Defense of Iran: Notes from a U.S. Peace Delegation’s Journey through the Islamic Republic”; and U.N. Human Rights Award winner Ramsey Clark, a former U.S. attorney general.

The list is expected to grow steadily as word spreads. Right now people can follow developments on the Facebook link:

  2. Care... for us!!!

    It is really really great that people are looking beyond the drivle from Corporate controlled Mainstream Media.
    Are there any organised protests against this obscenity in Sydney Australia.

    Regards Greg

    • If not Greg, you organise one!
      Recieved my copy today of UKColumn, it appears that in Australia and New Zealand you have a fantastic magazine now available here.
      Perhaps they will know of an organised group Down Under!
      Title of mag, UNCENSORED….WWW.UNCENSOREDMAG.CO.UK covers subjects that the controlled media can’t, by order!!
      This months UKColumn actually goes into detail, re the assination call in America against OBAMA untouched at all here.
      Good Luck, hopefully you’ll find a protest in Sydney, against the War with Iran.
      Millions protested against the Iraq war, but politician’s allowed their undemocratic ideology to show then, I suspect they will again.
      The mantra DEMOCRACY means naff all, when Western politicians act akin to a bunch of Fascist’s!!
      Trampling over the Middle East like a demented bunch of Fascist dictators’ slaughtering innocent people, isn’t my idea of a country acting as a democracy, that is unless we’ve been mislead about it’s true meaning.
      Without troops following their orders there’d be no war with Iran, time the troops started to use their own brains, sussing out, who the real enemies of freedom are!!
