NO war NO sanctions NO intervention NO assassinations

By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 21 January 2012

This week, more than a dozen anti-war organizations responded to a call by World Can't Wait to plan for a day of Mass Action against war or on sanctions on Iran.  We united on a day, Saturday February 4, for the first action, and a simple set of demands:

NO war NO sanctions NO intervention NO assassinations

In many respects, the U.S. war on Iran has been ongoing, with low intensity war in form of drone surveillance; funding of "opposition" groups inside the country, and so-called "black ops" carried out by U.S. special forces inside the country.

As we have been emphasizing, sanctions are a form and prelude to war, not a way of avoiding war.  Most critically, they hurt civilians.  See
Sanctions: Not a “Diplomatic Alternative” to War, but Mass Murder of Civilians for a look at how sanctions were used against Iraq.

It was great to get so many responses to my request Tuesday for how we should reach the U.S. population to mobilize them to act against another U.S. war. I have posted some on my blog.
Excerpts are here. Let's keep the conversation going.

This video was made in 2007, yet is more relevant than ever:
