On Monday, the US ratcheted up the aggression against Iran by reinstating more sanctions — and the people of Iran are the ones who will suffer. While Trump pretends that these sanctions are “for the Iranian people” and will force their government to the table, it is the people who will pay the price for this hawkish and dangerous policy.
Don’t let Donald Trump take us to war with Iran. Educate yourself, talk to your officials, speak out on social media.
A good place to start is with Medea Benjamin’s new book Inside Iran; the Real History and Politics of the Islamic Republic. The book tackles the contradictions in Iran’s system of government, traces the history of its stormy relationship with the United States, and presents scenarios for Iran’s future. For a donation of $50, we will send you a personally autographed copy of the book. And for a $100 donation, you will get a signed book and a “Peace with Iran” T-shirt!
We will use the funds to hire an Iran Coordinator to build ties with civil society in Iran and organize a CODEPINK team to pressure Congress to stop Trump's aggression.
Under the last round of sanctions, doctors were forced to operate under war-time conditions and were given a list of over 120 medications they could not prescribe. This time will be no different, and Iranians will lose access to life-saving medications such as treatments for cancer. Help us stop sanctions and stop the next war now.
For peace with Iran,
Ann, Ariel, Brienne, Eric, Jodie, Kirsten, Mark, Medea, Nancy, Natasha, Paki, Rita, Sarah, Sophia and Tighe
