Tuesday, September 20 Capitol Calling Party: Peace With Iran! Return Afghanistan's Money!

On Tuesday, September 20th, join CODEPINK Congress and Massachusetts Peace Action (MAPA) to challenge US policies causing mass starvation in Afghanistan and imposing brutal sanctions on Iran after the US abandoned the JCPOA (Iran nuclear deal). Despite a legal ruling favoring unfreezing half of Afghanistan’s $7 billion frozen in US banks, the Biden administration continues to withhold Afghanistan's Central Bank reserves. Meanwhile, as the White House moves toward rejoining the Iran nuclear deal, dozens of corporate Democrats aligned with Saudi Arabia, UAE and Israel are pushing back.

Will the US return to the Iran nuclear deal? Will the Biden administration unfreeze Afghanistan’s funds?  Stay tuned for our guests’ predictions.

Featured Guests:
