Today’s Action: Join the #NoWarWithIran national strategy phone call TODAY

Yesterday, in a predictable show of force, Iran retaliated against Trump’s targeted assassination of its senior military leader Qassem Soleimani, launching a missile attack at two Iraqi military bases hosting US military personnel.

This puts the ball back in Trump’s court, and after tearing up an effective nuclear agreement with Iran, we know we cannot rely on him to walk us back from the precipice of war that he has brought us to. Unless we act now to stop him.

Join the national strategy call TONIGHT, 8 pm EST / 5 pm PST, to learn how you can help stop our nation from entering Trump’s entirely-manufactured war. RSVP here and spread the word.

A war with Iran in Trump’s hands is possible thanks to the tools put in place long before he entered: authority to engage in warfare without Congress’ permission, via the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), handed to George W. Bush in 2001 and 2002. Progressives have called for the repeal for years, and we must step up this platform with even more urgency.

Congress must act immediately to reign in Trump’s powers, both the imminent issue of engagement with Iran and the ongoing ability to wage unchecked war. And to get Congress to act, especially Trump’s GOP enablers, we must mobilize quickly.

Call in TONIGHT for the national #NoWarWithIran strategy call, 8 pm EST / 5 pm PST, to get educated on how we stop this war – and end all of our endless wars.

PS. #NoWarWithIran protests nationwide tomorrow. Check the map, plan your attendance, and spread the word.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to end to cruel family separation, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
