Stop the War on Iran before it starts!
Money for Jobs, Healthcare, and Education, Not War and Occupation!

  • Stop War on Iran!
  • U.S. Out of Iraq & Afghanistan
  • No U.S. attack on Iran through Israel
  • No to all U.S./NATO war threats
  • Money for human needs, not war!
Emergency- Billions $$  needed for New Orleans NOT another War
It is a crime against humanity that billions are spent for war in Iraq, war in Afghanistan and billions more to threaten and mobilize for another war, while the racist and criminal neglect of the Gulf Coast continues.
Across the country we must mobilize and demand all those billions and more be spent for the emergency in New Orleans, the rebuilding of the  levees, for education, health care and jobs.
Join the emergency mobilization, help organize actions in over 100 cities on September 27:

What we do now can make a difference
Activists with the Stop War on Iran campaign have been gearing up for a summer and fall of non-stop mobilizing to stop another brutal U.S. war.
We were in Denver all of last week, at the many protests, marches, and rallies at the Democratic National Convention.  In the face of overwhelming police intimidation and violence, we carried Stop War on Iran banners and placards and distributed thousands of copies of our Stop War On Iran newsletter featuring the call to action for the  September 27  Day of Action - with protests in more than one hundred cities.
Now, we're in Minneapolis-St. Paul, site of the Republican National Convention
(September 1-4) Tens of thousands of activists, organizers, trade unionists, veterans, and community leaders are there to protest - and we are working to get the word out -  handing out literature, carrying the Stop War on Iran banner, and helping to build a grassroots movement to stop a U.S. attack.  Despite police raids and intimidations, our activists are determined to speak out against another illegal U.S. war (see the DNC-RNC blog for details and updates from the street - http://dncrnc.wordpress.com).
A crew of  Stop War on Iran activists have committed to be at both conventions, because we know that, whoever wins the election, the most important factor in stopping another brutal war is a peoples movement in the streets. We encourage you to join us in
Minneapolis-St. Paul - look for our signs and banners to see how you can get involved.  You can also help by making a donation online at http://stopwaroniran.org/donate.shtml to cover the costs of printing tens of thousands of newsletters, preparing banners, transportation and housing for Stop War on Iran Campaign activists.
Stop War on Iran!
Stop War on Iran is an international grassroots campaign of activists, scholars, clergy, veterans and other concerned individuals, launched in February of 2006 to oppose Washington’s campaign of threats, sanctions, and demonization against the people of Iran.
Since the launch of the campaign we have generated more than 1 million messages sent to President Bush, Vice President Cheney, members of the House and Senate (from both parties), members of the press, and oil company executives.
We have also organized teach-ins and organizing meetings across the U.S.,  and taken Stop War on Iran literature, placards, and banners to every major national antiwar demonstration as well as numerous local actions.

But it is clearly time to turn up the heat. 
Threats against Iran are growing daily, and the Bush Administration has mobilized a massive naval presence within striking range of Iran.
The Stop War on Iran campaign has been mobilizing all summer against the threat of a new U.S. war -  on August 2, when there were protests from coast to coast, at the DNC, and now on the the RNC. But we must do more - as the threat of a U.S. attack on Iran grows, we must do everything we can to build a grassroots movement to Stop War On Iran. 
Next Step:  September 27

In the next few days, please consider if you can organize a local September 27 action to Stop War On Iran, whether it is a march or rally, speak out, picket, teach-in - in cities large or small - what you do can make a difference.   You can list your action at http://www.stopwaroniran.org/sept272008volorgcent.shtml, so other activists in your area can contact you and get involved.
October 1 marks the beginning of a new fiscal year, with draconian budget cuts at the Federal and state level . We need money for education, health care, housing, and other human needs, not endless war for empire!
While billions of dollars go to war, at home the unemployment rate has the biggest spike in 23 years. Home foreclosures and evictions are increasing; fuel and food prices are through the roof. While the situation is growing dire for many, Washington ’s cuts to domestic programs continue - the coming fiscal year, beginning on October 1, will bring drastic cuts.   A new U.S. war will bring only more suffering.
