# VIGIL FOR IRAN
On Wednesday 12th of September, from Parliament Square, Peace Strike launched the “VIGIL FOR IRAN” This is an on-going pre-emptive campaign to prevent a war with Iran.
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
It’s up to us……the grass roots movement to initiate peaceful, yet powerful action to prevent war…..

Parliament Square, Westminster, London SW1A OAA
We must plan ahead in case of an emergency. Now is the time for people to unite in peace for the greater good of all people. We have no time to loose. The window of opportunity is still open. We must organize now so that we can and will be effective in our campaign. The ‘Vigil for Iran’ will be held outside the British Parliament and will represent ordinary grass roots campaigners, concerned citizens, the washed and the unwashed….in other words everyone who has care and compassion and will allow themselves to stand up and be counted. It will be a peaceful vigil with the aim of promoting peace through peaceful action.
The aim of the vigil is to grow in size each week and to spread to other strategic areas.
PRE-EMPTIVE ACTION TO PREVENT WAR…….
Good people coming together to do something.

WE NEED OUR TROOPS HOME!
We must plan ahead in case of an emergency.Now is the time for people to unite in peace for the greater good of the people and our beautiful world. We have no time to loose. The window of opportunity is still open. We must organize now so that we will be effective. The Vigil for Iran will be held outside the British Parliament and will represent ordinary grass roots campaigners, concerned citizens, the washed and the unwashed….in other words everyone who has care and compassion and will allow themselves to stand up and be counted. It will be a peaceful vigil with the aim of promoting peace through peaceful action.
It is not illegal to peacefully demonstrate in Parliament Square , Westminster, or Whitehall. Indeed it is encouraged. With the demise of the Serious Organized Crime and Police ACT 2005, (concerning demonstration in the SOCPA area), the restrictions that have replaced SOCPA 2005 apply to the use of camping or sleeping equipment. There is a case going through the court challenging this issue. The Public Order Act 1986 would now come into effect.
All are very welcome to join the vigil. The starting date will be announced soon…..
PRE-EMPTIVE ACTION TO PREVENT WAR…….
The crippling sanctions imposed on Iran are causing great hardship to the poor of the country. The sanctions are designed to create dissatisfaction and heighten stress levels in order to destabalise and weaken the country from within, ready for an attack at a time, yet to be defined.
Syria is being taken out right now so that the country is controlled and the ground made secure for military forces to operate from within Syria against Iran.
Protesters and anti-war groups must now prepare to counteract a major political and media campaign based on propaganda, mis-information, bias and lies that will be made against Iran and the Iranian people.
We must be ready to counteract the false claims and accusations that will be made by people in a position of authority and power.
We must not repeat the mistakes made in the past by simply protesting, going on marches and rallies. We know that we have to do more than that! Put simply, the governments of the world get away with doing what they do because there is nothing to STOP them!
Prepare to do all that matters in order to prevent another war! The outcome of launching a war of aggression against such a powerful country as Iran would have catastrophic consequences for the whole world. Peace can only be made through peace. We must therefore be strong and determined in our stand for peace, and above all the peace movement must stand UNITED in our aim to be effective and powerful in our own right, on our own terms.
