Iran: Support a Permanent Deal!

June 23, 2014 @ 10:00 am - June 24, 2014 @ 5:00 pm

 Iran claims its nuclear program is purely for peaceful purposes. But despite intelligence reports to the contrary, the U.S. still suspects Iran of having covert plans to build a nuclear weapon in the future, and has applied heavy sanctions on Iran’s economy.

The U.S. and Iran signed an interim nuclear agreement in November, and negotiations are progressing well toward a permanent deal.  But when an agreement is reached, Congress will have to approve lifting of sanctions – so we will need peace leaders in Congress who will advocate for lifting them.

Diplomacy Not War with Iran

Congress should:

  • NOT try to legislate the exact terms of the permanent agreement, which would jeopardize negotiations
  • SUPPORT robust diplomacy
  • PREPARE to lift sanctions as part of a final deal

 

Join Peace Action when we visit Congressional offices on June 23-24 in both Washington and Massachusetts!   We will advocate for peaceful  resolution of our differences with Iran.   Contact us to join the delegation!
