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

https://www.nowarwithiran.org/event/no-war-with-iran/126969/signup/?akid...

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.

Kevin Zeese of Popular Resistance Coming to Illinois!

Kevin Zeese of Popular Resistance Coming to Illinois!

Kevin & Margaret at a protest“Building the Peace Movement,” Carbondale Civic Center, 200 S. Illinois Ave. Wednesday, October 23rd, 6:30 p.m.: https://www.facebook.com/events/551464432255939/

In this presentation, Zeese will expose the motives underlying our misbegotten foreign policy. He will be sharing his knowledge about U.S. interventions in Venezuela, Nicaragua, Ukraine, and the Middle East, in making the case that the peace movement needs to become an explicitly anti-imperialist movement. Co-sponsored by the Peace Coalition of Southern Illinois and the Shawnee Green Party.

For years, Popular Resistance (https://popularresistance.org/) has been an indispensable source of information for the peace movement and struggles for economic, racial and environmental justice. Now co-director and frequent contributor Kevin Zeese will be coming to Illinois to speak at several events, including our Fall Conference in Urbana on October 26th.

Zeese, a member of the Maryland Green Party, has been in the forefront of numerous struggles for peace and social justice, from the recent People’s Mobilization to Stop the US War Machine and Save the Planet outside the United Nations to his organizing of the Embassy Protection Collective in Washington. The Embassy Protection Collective is a group of peace activists who occupied the Venezuelan embassy in Washington with the permission of the sovereign government of Venezuela, after the Trump administration forced all diplomatic staff to leave the U.S. The Embassy Protection Collective successfully thwarted the Trump administration’s efforts to turn the embassy over to supporters of its puppet Juan Guaido, as part of its attempt to execute a coup in Venezuela.

Zeese is one of four Embassy Protectors now facing highly politicized federal criminal charges for his role in standing up for international law and the rights of nations to self-determination. Contributions to support the protectors’ legal defense will be welcome at his appearances. (See http://defendembassyprotectors.org)
