Stop A War With Iran Rally 10

Washington DC, the evening of Thursday October 12, 2017. Around 50 peace activists and supporters associated with Move On, J Street, Win Without War, NIAC, Women's Action For New Directions and other groups gathered in front of the White House for an hour long rally with speeches to stop a war with Iran. President Trump is expected to "de-certify" the multilateral Iran deal that, at the very least, has been successful at interrupting the development of nuclear weapons by the Islamic State. Skilled diplomats and peace advocates worldwide worked very hard for over two years to get the Iran deal over the finish line in 2015. All objective observers, including generals and other 'national security' officials in Trump's administration, agree that Iran has lived up to their deal obligations. Still, our President, along with his ally Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, is determined to end the United States participation in the agreement, risking runaway nuclear proliferation and a possible catastrophic war. Many of us on the ground tonight have been here before. Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen and more. It's remarkable that the foolish rush into yet another war that could and should be prevented is protested by so few.
