CROSSING THE RED LINE
The RED LINE for the peace movement is if NATO forces officially arm the Syrian rebels for full scale regime change.
No UNITED NATIONS RESOLUTION can legally allow any member state to engage in the use of force against any sovereign nation.
The territory of a State shall not be the object of military occupation resulting from the use of force in contravention of the provisions of the Charter. The territory of a State shall not be the object of acquisition by another State resulting from the threat or use of force. No territorial acquisition resulting from the threat or use of force shall be recognized as legal. Nothing in the foregoing shall be construed as affecting:
Only by going “ON STRIKE FOR PEACE” can we stop a war with Iran. We need to have a plan that will be powerful and effective.
The truth has been exposed by Wikileaks, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden and many more. We no longer need to prove the case concerning illegal war and occupation, illegal rendition and torture.
We have all been vindicated by the sacrifice of the few to bring us the proof that waging wars of aggression are illegal, immoral and MUST STOP!
UK citizens must stand united if we are to be effective as a peace movement.
We must not be divided by hate propaganda which is overwhelming the media at this precise moment .
Once divided we are more easily controlled. Fear is the key to controlling the masses as we become increasingly afraid of each other.
If we allow this to happen we will loose the peace movement in a giant tsunami
of hysterical racist bombardment.
This is not by accident but rather, by design.
We need to stand strong and resolute now more than ever. We must be prepare to
face the challenge of more war on the horizon, and this time we must stop it before it’s too late..
United we stand.
VIGIL “ON HOLD”
This photo is of last weeks “Vigil for Iran” dated 21st November’12, held at Parliament Square UK.
Due to heavy commitments at this moment, and also the fact that there is little support for this vigil at this time, we have decided to postpone the vigil until sometime in the New Year. We will post again on the vigil as things change. Our daily petitions to Downing street will continue. Many thanks Peace Strike.
Following the US elections, – at some point thereafter, – we will know if we are on a countdown to war and be able to gauge a realistic time scale.
On-going weekly vigil, Wednesdays 5-7pm Parliament Square London UK. Need to spread nationally and internationally. Peace is an on-going struggle which requires effort and diligence. To fail in our efforts means unbearable mental and physical suffering for so many.
IF WE ARE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING TO HELP – THEN WE MUST!
Obama quote yesterday 22nd Oct” when referring to Iran “the toughest most crippling sanctions ever…”
Obama, Romney pledge to stand by Israel against Iran 23rd October 2012
Sanctions are causing inflation in Iran and harming its economy. 23rd October 2012
Are Iran sanctions working? 22nd Oct 2012.
We welcome campaigners, concerned citizens and anyone who cares for peace and justice, to join us for the initial two hours from 5-7pm to establish a weekly peace presence that will build up and spread to other strategic locations around Westminster and Whitehall.
The aim of the campaign is to unite supporters, and bring together different diverse groups and individuals so that our presence will be peaceful, powerful and effective. We wish our presence to be felt by the political powers, in order that they will have no option but to listen to us and take on board our concerns.
As well as acknowledging our concerns, we want them to act on them and change any plans they have for war.
A PRE-EMPTIVE ATTACK ON IRAN WOULD BE ILLEGAL.
So far, to date, there is no evidence that Iran has nuclear weapons capability. Even if they were to have the ambition, this in itself would not be illegal. What would be illegal would be a pre-empt war of aggression that in no way could be legally justified.
DOES IT MATTER?
DOES ANYONE CARE ANYWAY?
It would seem at times, that many people in our communities are beyond caring obout anyone but themselves. We live in selfish times, we are all aware of that. We suffer the consequences every day in our own lives. If we don’t care about each other, why then should we care about others, especially if we don’t know them.
YES, OF COURSE IT MATTERS!
YES, WE DO CARE!
If we knowingly allow injustice to occur and go unchallenged, in our own lives and communities then we are allow ourselves to become ‘part of the problem’. We have to, at some point take responsibility and work for change for the greater good. It is easy to see why young people in the UK are so frustrated and isolated within communities. The governments of the world spend so much time and energy exploiting and killing defenseless people simply because of geographic location and resources. We ourselves become victims, as knowledge of the truth hurts. Being aware of these problems in itself is not enough. We have to do something positive to make the change. Its up to us the ordinary grass roots citizens to unite and ‘BE A PART OF THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE’
If a pre-emptive attack was launched on an Iranian nuclear site, then the very minimum amount of people to be killed initially would be in the region of 100,000. Iran would retaliate.
After this, no one would know when it would end.
This action would effect the whole of the Middle East and have major repercussions globally. The media propaganda would have us hating anyone who looked Iranian, even though they were attacked and would have been forced to defend themselves. There would be retaliation in this country and we would see communities turn against each other. At some point we would have to rely on the authorities to save us from each other. The irony would be that we would then be grateful to a government for saving us and our communities, even though they ignored our wishes not to go to war! The governments fear an uprising so would manipulate the situation so that we would turn on each other!
Endless war would mean that young people would eventually be called up to do their duty for our country. Patriotism would be called for and those not willing would be seen as disloyal and untrustworthy.
IRAQ /AFGHANISTAN PEACE MOVEMENT 2002….2012…..
We have been down this road before, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Gaza, Libya, Syria…..
Pakistan is being being continually bombed and is not mentioned as a country at war, we just go ahead unchallenged. To date, we have not stopped any wars. The will of the people has never been strong enough to succeed. Our weakness is that we are easily divided.
PRE-EMPTIVE PEACE ACTION TO PREVENT WAR
The “Vigil for Iran” plan is to start small and get bigger each week. It is grass roots lead and is non-partisan. We are not affiliating ourselves with any Iranian political parties. As concerned citizens our duty is to the families and civilian population that would be victims if such action were undertaken.
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN A CURE.
We are not prepared to accept war as the answer to making peace and establishing freedom and democracy!
THE LINE IS DRAWN.
We refuse to be complicate in any more war. We demand an end to war and our troops brought home.
The “Vigil for Iran” promotes peaceful action and is peaceful in its intent.
Please join us every Wednesday between 5-7pm either at Parliament square in London or in a solidarity action of your own organizing.
We need to establish now to be effective in rallying the masses. We have to influence and inspire people to promote confidence so that we are strong in our movement. We will not be deceived again
nor will we be divided by propaganda.
ALL PEACEFUL PEOPLE WELCOME! BRING BANNERS AND PLACARDS
