Tomorrow, Thurs Jan 9, 4:30p-5:30p, PEACE NOT WAR WITH IRAN, Town Sq -- March to Bost Office, Join Us!!
Dear Peace Coalition members, supporters and others,
(we originally planned a vigil on Saturday, but weather does not look promising, so will act tomorrow instead. On Saturday the PSL will host a teach-in webinar featuring experts and activists on the issues of Iran and the U.S.-see below for details)
We have responded to the call for action tomorrow, Thursday to register the urgent need to stop the slide to war. We have just heard a statement from the President that he doesn't want war, but never acknowledging the provocative and illegal actions that the U.S.has engaged in but putting the blame completely on Iran. Iran's leaders have repeatedly stated that the development of nuclear weapons is not allowed by their religious edicts and they are not seeking to build any. They notified Iraq of their planned strikes last night, so the U.S. was forewarned and no casualties resulted, in stark contrast to the U.S. drone strike that killed Soleimani who was arriving in Iraq to consult with the Iraqi government.
Thursday, January 9, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Town Square Pavilion, Corner of Main St and Illinois Ave. Carbondale,
Gather at Town Square Pavilion, Walk North on Main St. to deliver a message to Rep. Mike Bost and vigil in front of his office.
Signs will be provided but attendees welcome to bring their own
Assassinations don't make us safer. Last night's attack is clear evidence of that. And that is why on Thursday, we will join together for a day of action across the country to protest and say #NoWarWithIran.
Trump’s unhinged foreign policy has needlessly endangered the lives of U.S. troops and Iraqi, Iranian, and countless other civilians.
We will not be led into another illegal war.
