The Iran nuclear deal will be top on the agenda when Congress returns from August recess on September 8. AIPAC is flying hundreds of people to DC to greet Congress with the message: VOTE DOWN THE IRAN DEAL.
Will you join us to counter their message?
We’re launching a peace insurrection outside Congress from September 8 until the final vote (which must happen by September 17).
We’ll kick it off with a “Hands Around the Capitol” action on September 8 (time TBA), where we’ll join hands and surround the Capitol Building to show support for the Iran Peace Deal! Please come and invite your friends.
After “Hands Around the Capitol,” we encourage folks to stay in DC for the peace insurrection encampment, where we will lobby Congress as well as be outside to show visible support for the deal. The encampment will stay erected until September 17, when Congress is required to finish voting on the Iran deal.
Each morning we will meet at 9am at Dirksen Cafeteria unless noted otherwise on this page (check back for updates).
Housing board request for people in DC area:We will be having folks joining from all over the country, and they need places to stay. Can you host one or more activist from out of town? If so, please email Mike@codepink.org and let him know how many people you can host for how many days, if you have pets (for allergy purposes), and if your house is handicap accessible.
Not in DC? Join one of the hundreds of vigils going on nationwide. Follow this link for more information.
