Stop Trump’s Iran War Now! Emergency GPJA meeting, Thursday, January 9, 7pm, Unite Union Office

Dear GPJA Supporter,

Just weeks after his impeachment, President Trump is trying to force the US and the rest of the world into a senseless war with Iran.

We must stop him.

By ordering a drone strike-assassination of Qasem Soleimani and other top Iranian military officials as they were leaving the Baghdad Airport, Trump has committed a war crime and unleashed a terrifying escalation of tensions.

Trump must be stopped quickly before things further escalate. His thinly veiled threats of nuclear war in no way represent the will of the American people and many there are speaking out against war.

As expected, the right-wing propaganda machine is busy justifying the march to war just as they justify all the outrageous behavior of this Administration. But the lies have worn thin.

We need to hit the streets to show our opposition.

We can’t be fooled by the extremists in the Trump Administration and their media cheerleaders. They will paint opponents of the war as “apologists for Iran”, or “anti-American”, or “naive” — or whatever label they can use to distract us from their corrupt rationale for war.

To oppose war is to recognize the intrinsic value of all human life no matter where they live or what kind of government they live under.

The very real steps towards open war with Iran follows the direct US role in the overthrow of the elected government in Bolivia and continuing economic war to overthrow the Venezuelan government and cripple Cuba.

GPJA is obliged by the new U.S. war threat in the Middle East to renew its work in Auckland as a broad activist coalition leading the fight for peace and social justice.

Come to a meeting this Thursday, 7pm, at the Unite Union office, 6a Western Springs Rd, Morningside, Auckland to start that job in 2020.

Please join us in denouncing the path toward war against Iran.

Regards,
Mike
