On January 25 over 200 cities across the globe came together to say NO war with Iran and apologize to the Iranian people. But as you all know, we are still on the brink of war and the people who are pushing for another deadly conflict in the Middle East are the very same who stand to gain the most by going to war.
It’s now more important than ever to take on war profiteers in our local communities, which is why CODEPINK and our partners are organizing to pass Peace With Iran City Council Resolutions in cities around the country. It’s critical that we engage our local communities and elected officials about who is really pushing for war with Iran so if you’re interested in getting involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
