Lift Economic Sanctions on Iran!

For a true no-conditions approach, the U.S. needs to stop its campaign of unilateral coercive economic warfare and preparations for war. For genuine, good-faith, no-conditions talks, the US must stop:

  • Reimposing and tightening economic sanctions on Iran
  • Cancelling sanctions waivers to countries importing Iranian oil, to force Iranian oil exports to zero
  • Deploying aircraft carriers to the Persian Gulf to threaten Iran
  • Bypassing Congress to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia and the UAE on the pretext of curb Iranian “threats,”

Sign the petition below to tell Pompeo: Clear the field for peace talks with Iran by lifting the sanctions and ending the threat of war.

Dear Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,

As citizens of the United States, we call on the U.S. government to lift the crippling economic sanctions you have imposed on Iran. We are happy that the administration now says it is open to talks with Iran, but bullying Iran to the negotiating table with sanctions and threats of war is not the answer.

You insist that you care about the Iranian people but your sanctions deprive cancer patients of medications, make it hard for the disabled to get prosthetic limbs, and drive up the price of staple food items.

We would like you to listen to the calls made by 170+ prominent Iranian women’s rights activists who demand that the U.S. end this conflict and lift the devastating sanctions on Iran. These broad sanctions impact the most vulnerable populations, including women, children, minorities, and people with disabilities.

As peace loving Americans, we call for the U.S. to lift sanctions and dismantle the maximum pressure campaign in order to start talks with Iran.

    We have no reason to hate Iran, but we continue to give them many reasons to hate us. Can you understand what’s wrong with this picture?

    It is obvious to me that trumputin is a megalomaniac, who cares about NOTHING but his sorry, selfish, self ! ! I believe that all of ’trump’s gorilla fight posturing’ about war with Iran is a great effort to distract the American People from ‘all the filthy, criminal activities that he and his ’fellow gangsters’ have and are committing. I believe that, if trump feels that he will be removed from office, he will WANT TO DIE ! ! And he will try to DESTROY the earth with nuclear weapons ! ! Wake up America !

    If US truly wants diplomacy, it needs to demonstrate that she is sincere and lift the sanctions first, and change the tone from hostilities to friendship.
