No War on Iran – Demonstrate This Saturday
The assassination of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani is an act of war by
Donald Trump. The act was carried out in Baghdad, violating all
agreements with the Iraqi government. Trump has further threatened
attacks on 52 Iranian targets, including cultural sites. Iran has said
it will retaliate, and there is huge opposition to this action both in
Iran and Iraq, where the parliament has voted for US troops to leave.
Trump has been heading for war since tearing up the nuclear deal with Iran and if he succeeds will create a bigger war than we have seen in the Middle East. It will draw in major players across the region including Israel, Saudi Arabia and possibly Russia.
We must do everything we can to oppose war with Iran and attacks on Iraq. This begins with a public meeting in London on Wednesday and a demonstration on Saturday. Other protests and events will be taking place across the country and you can stay notified of them on our events page here.
