Take Peace With Iran Message to the U.S. State Department on Friday

As Iran talks begin, CODEPINK Delivers Petitions to State Dept and Project Compelling WE LOVE IRANIANS images on State Dept Building

WHAT: Large Projections of “Iranians We Love You” images on the State Department Building and delivery of 20,000 signature calling for Diplomacy Not War
WHEN: 10am, Friday, April 13
WHERE:  State Department entrance at 22nd and C Streets, NW, Washington DC

On Friday, April 13, while G-8 global powers meet with Iranian representatives in Istanbul, activists with CODEPINK will deliver to the office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton a petition against war on Iran that was signed by prominent women, including Gloria Steinem, Alice Walker, and Eve Ensler, and over 20,000 American women and allies.    

The petition implores three powerful American female politicians—Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Ambassador Susan Rice and First Lady Michelle Obama—to use their influence to push for diplomacy, not war. The petitions were hand-delivered to the First Lady Michelle Obama at an event in San Francisco on March 30. 

CODEPINK will also project images of Israeli and American activists sending a message of love to Iranians – images that have become an icon of sentiments against war on Iran, making recent headlines around the globe. “The pictures of American and Israeli families holding up signs aren’t just a cute cliché, they are emblematic of the disconnect between the people and governments that are moving dangerously towards war,” says CODEPINK cofounder Medea Benjamin. This photo meme, which has gone viral on the Internet, shows the great desire of ordinary people in Israel, Iran and the United States to live together in peace.” Working with the Israeli group that originated this campaign, CODEPINK - an online tool for people to create their own photos and messages and share the message widely on facebook, twitter, and flickr.

Paul Craig Roberts, like Stephen Lendman, like Glenn Greenwald,  hits the Western despotism, Fascism on the nail:

Washington Leads World Into Lawlessness



"The US government pretends to live under the rule of law, to respect human rights, and to provide freedom and democracy to citizens. Washington's pretense and the stark reality are diametrically opposed.

US government officials routinely criticize other governments for being undemocratic and for violating human rights. Yet, no other country except Israel sends bombs, missiles, and drones into sovereign countries to murder civilian populations. The torture prisons of Abu Gahraib, Guantanamo, and CIA secret rendition sites are the contributions of the Bush/Obama regimes to human rights.

Washington violates the human rights of its own citizens. Washington has suspended the civil liberties guaranteed in the US Constitution and declared its intention to detain US citizens indefinitely without due process of law. President Obama has announced that he, at his discretion, can murder US citizens whom he regards as a threat to the US.

Congress did not respond to these extraordinary announcements with impeachment proceedings. There was no uproar from the federal courts, law schools, or bar associations. Glenn Greenwald reports that the Department of Homeland Security harasses journalists who refuse to be presstitutes, and we have seen videos of the brutal police oppression of peaceful OWS protesters. Chris Floyd describes the torture-perverts who rule the US.

Now Washington is forcing as much of the world as it can to overthrow international treaties and international law. Washington has issued a ukase that its word alone is international law. Any country, except those who receive Washington's dispensation, that engages in trade with Iran or purchases Iran's oil will be sanctioned by the US. These countries will be cut off from US markets, and their banking systems will not be able to use banks that process international payments. In other words, Washington's "sanctions against Iran" apply not to Iran but to countries that defy Washington and meet their energy needs with Iranian oil...."




Like the social theories of the Enlightenment, when social liberals, (revolutionary liberals), social libertarians, were on the same page, to

end Feudal Absolutism, and class history, we have a social alliance between social libertarians, like PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS, GLENN

GREENWALD, AND STEPHEN LENDMAN.   We need to take on the corrupt BI PARTISAN FASCISM of two corporate parties, degenerate

corporate, empire liberals and the fascist republicans..........TIME FOR A SOCIAL ALLIANCE BETWEEN SOCIAL LIBERTARIANISM AND

SOCIAL LIBERALS, TODAY CALLED SOCIALISTS, who opposed Stalinism, opposed Corporate fascism, parallel totalitarianisms.
