Today’s Action: #NoWarWithIran protests TONIGHT

Yesterday, Trump delivered an address to the nation indicating at least a pause in his aggressive run-up to war with Iran, and for that, we can be grateful. But when dealing with the most volatile, impulsive leaders in our nation’s history, we know better than to count on Trump’s words. Even if he means it in the moment, we can usually count on him to change his mind on a dime (literally, because we’re sure his business buddies who bank off of military contracts aren’t too pleased with yesterday’s conclusions.)

That’s why we’re not taking any chances – the #NoWarWithIran protests are moving forward TONIGHT.

Enter your zip code to find the closest #NoWarWithIran protest near you, and get your protest signs ready…tonight, we take to the streets.

Today, the House will vote to restrict Trump’s abilities to wage war in Iran without the approval of Congress…but it’s the Senate where we’ll really need this agenda pushed. Tonight’s protests need to send a clear signal to Senators across the country: we do not condone his warmongering, and we want him back under the authority of the Constitution, which states that only Congress has the ability to declare war.

Except that Trump has extensive ability to order immediate military action, 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 engagement with Iran and the ongoing ability to wage unchecked war. And to get Congress to act, especially Trump’s GOP enablers, we must take action.

Join thousands of Americans across the country in making a clear public statement against war with Iran. Enter your zip code to join the #NoWarWithIran National Day of Action.
