On June 26, the Stop War on Iran Campaign issued a call for emergency actions on August 2 to stop the Bush Administration's drive towards an attack against Iran.
In the few days since we've issued the call, responses have been pouring in. Already, we have heard back from activists and organizers who are planning protests, rallies, and pickets in more than 50 cities, including a major demonstration in New York City in Times Square and a demonstration in front of the White House in Washington. Actions will also be held in Los Angeles, several cities in Texas, locations throughout New England, small towns in Utah, and more. We are working on compiling a list of the growing number of local actions now, which we will have online soon.
It is urgent that we act now, and that we make every possible effort to stop a war against Iran. We know that once Wall Street and the Pentagon, initiate a war and occupation, they are determined to continue, even in the face of determined resistance and opposition. Iraq and Afghanistan have been ripped to shreds by the invasion and occupation. Millions are without potable water, electricity, functioning schools, basic health care or security. Millions more have become refugees.
The cost of endless war means growing hunger and poverty here in the U.S. It also means deteriorating schools and infrastructure and millions of people without health care.
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 stopped!
We must take action now. Please consider how you can help - what you do in the next few weeks can make a difference:
