There will be nationwide protests on Saturday, January 4, in opposition to the Trump administration’s dangerous escalation of the conflict with Iran, including the assassination of Qassim Suleimani and sending thousands of more troops to the region. We believe that the Trump administration’s reckless decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran is at the root of the present crisis. 

The Saturday protests are calling for No War with Iran and Troops Home from the Middle East and will take place in over 30 cities around the country. We are also calling on Congress to condemn Trump’s escalation and to make it clear that the White House has no authority to carry out military attacks without Congressional authorization. 

Below are the cities were protests are planned. We hope you will be able to attend to cover the protests or call us for interviews. CODEPINK and other organizers/endorsers are available for interviews.
