Dear Activist,

It’s appalling that House Speaker John Boehner is deliberately subverting President Obama’s nuclear negotiations with Iran by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress. This is a historic and appalling breach of diplomatic protocol that has infuriated the Obama Administration and many members of Congress.

Email your Congressperson today and tell them to skip Netanyahu’s speech!

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Jewish Voice for Peace, US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), and RootsAction to apply grassroots pressure on our elected officials to skip Netanyahu’s speech. The speech, scheduled for March 3, will come just two weeks before elections in Israel, essentially making the American Congress a backdrop for Netanyahu’s campaign. You can expect him todrum up support for more sanctions against Iran and the continued brutal occupation of Palestine.  

Will you send a message to your Senators and Representatives now, and tell them to #SkiptheSpeech?

 Netanayahu has timed his speech to coincide with the annual policy conference of the Israel lobby AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) in Washington DC so he can make an appearance there as well. During the AIPAC conference, CODEPINK and friends will be in the streets and in the halls of Congress protesting for four days from February 28-March 3RSVP for four inspiring days of creative actions, panel discussions and lobbying. We hope you will join us!

Let’s show the Congress that we want successful nuclear talks with Iran, not more sanctions and confrontation—and so should they!

With hope for peace,

Alli, Anna, Jodie, Katie, Kristen, Medea, Nalini, Tighe
