On January 9, 2020, the House passed their war powers resolution and this week it is the Senate’s turn. The vote will happen soon. Contact your Senators now and tell them to vote for Sen. Kaine’s war powers resolution! Ensure that trump can not take any further military actions against Iran without congressional approval.

Fill out the form below to send an email to your senators — overseas supporters can scroll down to sign the petition below. 

It is also important that you call your senators. You can do so via the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 using the following script:

Hello. My name is _____ and I’m a constituent from (city and state). I’m calling to urge Senator _____ to vote YES on the Iran War Powers Resolution to prevent the President from launching an unauthorized war against Iran. I am strongly opposed to a U.S. war with Iran. War is not the answer to the challenges we face. Diplomacy is the only solution. Thanks for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing why Senator ____ will or will not support my request.

Don't forget to sign up for the January 25 NO WAR WITH IRAN International Day of Action. We will help you find a protest near you or organize your own protest, take action on social media, and more.



Overseas supporters can sign this petition:

Dear U.S. Congress,

This is urgent and dire. As your constituent, I urge you to take immediate action to stop Trump from going to war against Iran, a war that could be even more disastrous than the U.S. war with Iraq. I need you to vote YES on the privileged War Powers resolutions introduced by Representative Slotkin in the House and Senator Tim Kaine in the Senate to mandate that without congressional authorization, the Trump Administration’s military actions targeting Iran must cease within 30 days. We need veto-proof votes.

Additionally, the House should introduce an Iraq War Powers Resolution to stop further U.S. military participation in these escalating events on Iraqi soil and vote to repeal the 2002 Iraq Authorization for the Use of Military Force. The U.S. should abide by the recent vote of Iraq’s parliament to remove all U.S. troops from the country. 

The assassination of General Qasem Soleimani—a man who had a popularity rating in Iran of over 80% because of his successful fight against ISIS—and U.S. airstrikes in Iraq before that brought us to the brink of war. The blame for the present crisis rests squarely on the doorstep of the White House. The Trump administration’s reckless decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and revert to the U.S. policy of threats and sanctions is backfiring—as predicted. The American people have made clear in poll after poll that they do not want to be dragged into another war in the Middle East. Please act now as the voice of the people to stop the U.S. from going to war with Iran. 

Sincerely,

Comments

    We do not need to have a military action in Iraq. We need a peaceful world and set our minds towards health care for all Americans, cleaning up our climate and enter more positive relationships with our Allies who have lost trust with Mr. Trump and his lies.

    Imagine the world we could be living in if the trillions of dollars wasted down the black hole of death and destruction in these endless wars had been spent on building peace instead.

    We cannot afford escalation of the conflict between the US and Iran. The Trump admin. has to stop its threats of “disproportionate relaliation”.

    The money spent on wars could be spent to give the poor people medical care, child care, and food. The social protection budget is always cut because we hear we are so much in debt. So poor people have to suffer and the military gets all the money to prepare for usless wars. We need to get out of these wars, let these countries settle their own problems, and respect their way of life. This Iran thing was all caused when Presient Trump enacted crippling sanctions on them. That General who was killed was actually trying to make a peace agreement of some kind. The government of Saudi Arabia does not want war and was trying to get that General to work with them and find a peaceful solution. Now all the progress made by other presidents and all those veterans who were killed in the Mid-East is being wasted and everyone is kept guessing what draft dogger Trump is going to do next!! Our country is a disaster because of his terrible agenda!! IInstead we need to find ways to cooperate with other countries to find solutions to climate change. This should be the most important goal of everyone. After all climate disasters such as floods, hurricanes, drought, famine, wild fires and record heat will effect everyone—it will not matter if a person is a Democrat or Republican!! Global Warming is an equal oppunity disaster and everyone may have to face hunger and lack of clean drinking water within 20 years!! Time to refocus and stop this tragedy from happening. In fact these wars will get worse as countries fight for the limited resources. It breaks my heart to see all those rare and exotic animals being killed in the Australia wild fires. These animals are unique to Australia, they are not found anywhere else in the World and now we are loosing them. People knew 40 years ago about the global warming problem but just ignored it and instead focused on all kinds of stupid crap. Now it is probably too late and at least 40% of the population is endangered because of the worsening climate crisis. Time for action and find ways to conserve and most of all pray, because it will take a miracle to save our planet. thankyou, CB
