No War with Iran: DSA National Emergency Action Call
January 9, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Short URL: https://seattledsa.org/?p=13594
To signup, visit the DSA National sign-up form here.
Join us for an emergency national strategy call to reignite a diverse working-class movement to stop a war with Iran.
The U.S. military’s escalation towards war brings us dangerously close to never-ending war with catastrophic consequences for millions of Iranians, Iraqis, and across the Middle East.
War would also derail our own domestic fights for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, and other vital programs. And it would bring thousands more working-class people from the US into the war zone.
On the call, we’ll be joined by:
- Rory Fanning, Writer, veteran of two tours in Afghanistan, conscientious objector, and member of Veterans for Peace
- Linda Sarsour, Executive Director at MPower Change, the largest Muslim led social and racial justice organization in the United States
- Azadeh Shahshahani, distinguished Iranian legal scholar who worked formerly for the ACLU and now for Project South
We’ll also hear from our National Political Committee and other national campaign committees with information on specific actions your chapter can take within the week to stop a war.
DSA chapters across the country are demonstrating now, but it will take sustained pressure from a mass movement to stop U.S. imperialism. Join us to hear more about what other DSAers are doing right now and how you can organize your community against the war.
