Peace Action is working with the The Iran Pledge of Resistance (IPOR) to organize an emergency response network capable of responding to any U.S. intervention in Iran or the Middle East.
Over the past few months, there has been much talk about the possibility of a U.S. war with Iran. Israel, one of the U.S.’s closest allies in the region, is threatening military action which could pull the US into war.
Despite the fact that top U.S. intelligence officials have made consistent statements that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program, President Obama and the Republican presidential candidates and members of Congress on both sides of “the aisle” are saying that “all options are on the table” to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.
Let’s stop this war before it starts. What if millions joined together to say no to war, through a direct action network?
“If the United States applies increased sanctions, invades, bombs, sends combat troops or drones, or otherwise significantly escalates its intervention in Iran or the region directly or through support of its allies, I pledge to join with others to engage in acts of legal protest and/or nonviolent civil disobedience to prevent or halt the death and destruction which U.S. military actions would cause to the people of Iran, the Middle East, our communities at home, and the planet itself.”
By signing the pledge you will be connecting with hundreds of thousands of others who are receiving this email and taking the first step by signing up.
While the Pledge itself is online and we will continue online action, we must also organize a grassroots movement on the ground, in our communities. Peace Action will connect you with others in your area who sign the pledge to coordinate local actions and emergency responses.
The structure of the Iran Pledge of Resistance is a simple one: you can be a part of the online initiative, and/or you can be a part of or help organize a local affinity group formed by those signing up.
As momentum builds, Peace Action and others will help to form spokes councils and coordinating bodies of local affinity groups. Those spokes councils will be part of the national conversation to figure out next steps, plan days of actions and much more.
Peace Action will keep you up to date on a range of actions to prevent war against Iran. We and Credo just delivered 70,000 online petition signatures to the Obama administration.
Take the first step today to prevent a war in Iran. Join Peace Action in signing the Iran Pledge of Resistance.
Working together, we can become a powerful grassroots movement that can change the course of history.
