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.

Sincerely,

    I am appalled at what the U.S. government is doing in the name of all Americans! I am thoroughly disgusted by those who claim to represent us! I am, for only the 2nd time in my 60+ yrs of life, ashamed to be an American citizen! How dare you violate all the International laws & treaties that we, the USA have signed onto, expecting others to follow those same laws, while we do not! This America that The Trump Regime has hijacked bears NO RESEMBLANCE to the USofA that I grew up with!

    The only Regime that is in dire need of a change is OURS! (This Regime is like a baby’s diaper & needs changing for the same reason!)

    This Trump Regime in no way reflects the values of this once well-respected nation. Used to be that we could be counted on to obey International Laws ~ in fact, we often were a guiding force & positive influence in the world & the creation of such laws & pacts. In less than 4yrs the Trump Regime that hides in the darkness where evil lies, has betrayed this Country, its allies & indeed, the world.

    This Regime does not speak for the American People, who remain uninformed as to the acts of this Trump government. A Trumpian government that is cruel, dishonest & reigns over is own people with the same lack of respect that it’s showing the world. How filthy & disgusting! Should be ashamed of itself.

    If any other Nation were doing even a fourth of what U.S. gov’t is doing, the Trump Regime would be screaming so loud, would hear it on the moon! There is NO EXCUSE for the sanctions on these 2 Countries, nor for abusing IMF power & ignoring the world groups that we are a part of. The U.S. IS in violation of all those laws & signed treaties!

    How would we feel if the tables were turned? What would we then do? We’re committing “crimes against humanity”, killing thousands of civilians, even children, with our sanctions! Cruelty & hypocrisy do not “make America great again” ~ quite the opposite! The Trumpian era must end & it cannot be soon enough! The day will come when we need help with something…& no one will be there. Rightfully so.

    The US sancactions represent immoral and illegal acts violating the human rights of the Iranian people not just in iran but wherever they live in the world. Other countries are bullied by the US to obey these sanctions although they believe them to be wrong and unjust.

    Please, we must take this humanitarian step. There is no good reason to continue to make Iran suffer during this global health crisis.
