1) CLEARING THE GROUND FOR WAR AGAINST IRAN
CLEARING THE GROUND FOR WAR AGAINST IRAN
There is a frightening crescendo building towards war in the
Middle East. The UN is debating a resolution on Syria demanding
regime change. This follows the withdrawal of the Arab League
delegation there and calls for intervention. The US military is
clearing the ground for war against Iran.
In a report to Congress, Director of National Intelligence James
Clapper claimed that Iranian leaders “are now more willing to
conduct an attack in the United States.”
Meanwhile Defence Secretary Leon Panetta went on TV to assert
that Iran would have a nuclear bomb within a year. The US is
conducting a military build-up in parallel to the propaganda
offensive. A third US carrier is now on the way to the Gulf.
On 28 January, Stop the War launched its national DON’T ATTACK
IRAN campaign at a 500 strong rally outside the US Embassy in
London. SEE REPORT & VIDEOS OF SPEECHES: http://bit.ly/zMKNEL.
We are asking Stop the War local groups and supporters to
organise urgent activists’ meetings in every area to start
planning local campaigns against an attack on Iran.
On Saturday 11th February we are calling a national day of action
with protests, die-ins, sit-ins, mock air raids, petitioning and
street meetings, to publicise the arguments against an attack.
