Donald Trump is threatening war on Iran. On Sunday, May 19th he tweeted
that a fight between our two countries would mark, “the official end of
Iran.” These genocidal threats cannot go unchecked. Military experts are
warning that a war with Iran would be horrific. Our friend Colonel Larry
Wilkerson recently stated that the conflict would be, “a disaster that will
make the 10 years in Iraq look like child’s play by comparison.”

Join us to raise awareness of this crisis and protest the Trump
Administration’s reckless rhetoric and attempts to destabilize yet another
Middle Eastern country.

In Northampton, a second rally will gather at the Old Hampshire County
Courthouse on June 1 at 11am. See details here.

We will urge our representatives to support the Prevention of
Unconstitutional War with Iran Act (H.R. 2354). Senators Warren and Markey
have cosponsored the Senate version (S.1039) but, with the exception of
Congressman Jim McGovern from Worcester, none of our Congresspeople have
signed on to this crucial piece of legislation. Those who claim to resist
President Trump must resist his march to an unconstitutional war.

With National Security Adviser John Bolton leading the way, the Trump
Administration is exacerbating tensions by sending a Carrier Strike Group
and a squadron of B-52 bombers to the region as a show of force. A war
between the United States and Iran would be devastating to the people of
both countries. It cannot be allowed to happen. Join us in Watertown Square
on June 1st. Together we will make our voices heard and take a stand for
diplomacy and peace.

Sponsors: Massachusetts Peace Action; Watertown Citizens for Peace,
Justice, and the Environment; Arlington United for Justice with Peace;
National Iranian-American Council
