“No War With Iran: Day of Action [January 9th]”
- Editor’s note: Whether you agree with the President or not, this march is to let the President and Congress know that we do not want our family, neighbors and friends coming home in coffins or body bags! Those of us who were alive during the Viet Nam War remember those nightly scenes! Congress MUST take command of their Constitutional responsibility and agree that the President can not go to war without a veto-proof Congressional War Declaration!
- From Move-On:
“Alarming news broke that Iran has launched an attack on the American al-Asad air base in Iraq in response to Donald Trump’s reckless, illegal provocations. News is continuing to develop, but it’s already clear that the following [nationwide march] has become even more important.”
“We will not be forced into another war. On Thursday, January 9, at 5 p.m. local time, the anti-war majority in this country will get visible to oppose Trump’s war and say #NoWarWithIran.”
Thurston County war protest march information:
“Meet at [Olympia’s ] Percival Landing at 4:45 PM [Thursday, January 9] to make it clear – we object to the warpath trump has set us on is NOT acceptable at all. By deploying more troops to the region, he is visibly creating a war footing. Iraq has asked the USA to leave. Iranians who were protesting their gov’t have now been unified with their gov’t to protest ours. He’s not made us safer at all. We must make it known we want NO WAR WITH IRAN.
