The United National Anti-War Coalition (UNAC) has just issued the following urgent statement calling on the entire progressive movement in the U.S. to raise the demand "No War, No Sanctions, No Internal Interference in Iran!" 
The organization I belong to, the Defenders for Freedom, Justice & Equality, is a founding member of UNAC. My wife and comrade Ana Edwards is on the steering committee, I'm on the coordinating committee (and drafted the statement) and many other Defenders have promoted and attended UNAC marches and conferences. We fully support this statement on Iran.

We are now asking all our friends and allies to please help widely circulate the statement and also sign the petition endorsing the above slogan.

We understand that the threat of war against Iran is very real and we must all do what we can to prevent another international atrocity. And no one has more responsibility to do that than progressives right here in the heart of the Empire.

At no time since the Iranian people rose up against the hated U.S-installed Shah has a U.S./Israeli military attack against Iran seemed more possible. Following three decades of unrelenting hostility, the last few months have seen a steady escalation of charges, threats, sanctions and actual preparations for an attack. These are just a few of the most recent developments:

*  Beginning in late October, Israeli media began widely speculating that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was heavily lobbying for military strikes against Iran's nuclear energy sites.(1)

*  On Nov. 2, Israel test-fired a missile said to be able to both carry a nuclear warhead and reach Iranian territory.(2)

*  Britain's armed forces have reportedly stepped up contingency planning for potential military action against Iran.(3)

*  These developments followed widely challenged U.S. allegations of an Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States, an attack that top U.S. officials claim was to be carried out by a hit-man hired from the Zeta drug cartel, known to be deeply infiltrated by U.S. anti-drug agents.(4)

*  A Congressional bill promoted by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee would forbid the President from speaking to Iranian officials without explicit permission from Congress -- a restriction unprecedented in U.S. history.(5)

*  In November, the Boeing Company sent the U.S. Air Force the first of 20 "bunker-busting" bombs, designed to destroy underground facilities such as those housing Iran's nuclear energy program. The bombs, which cost a total of about $314 million, are each nearly five tons heavier than anything else in the military's arsenal.(6)

*  Both the U.S. and the U.K. have imposed new sanctions against Iran's banking system, hoping to economically strangle the country's economy.(7)
