11 years after the US attack on Afghanistan, 73,000 US troops remain there.  Bring the troops home now - not in 2024 as the Administration proposes.

Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel is again beating the drums for a war with Iran. Tell Senator Kerry that we can't afford another Middle East War!

The Senate has yet to vote on the $5.8 billion plan for a new nuclear bomb factory, called the CMRR, in New Mexico.   Tell Sen. Kerry to vote no.

At this vigil we will reach out to passersby and deliver a letter to Senator Kerry on these issues.   Join us -- and tell us in advance that you'll be there, so we can put your name on the letter!   Register to attend at http://justicewithpeace.org/bblv-register

Feb 4th: Day of Mass Action to Stop War on Iran

NO war NO sanctions NO intervention NO assassinations on Iran

In many ways, the U.S. war on Iran has already begun.

The U.S. government is shaping public opinion to accept military intervention in Iran in the name of “national security.” Fabricated stories that claim evidence of Iran pursuing nuclear weapons is being blasted through mainstream media and repeated by almost every mainstream politician.

John SchuchardtJohn Schuchardt, co-director of the House of Peace in Ipswich, will report back on his recent fact-finding and friendship mission to Iran.  

Schuchardt was part of a 10 member peace delegation organized by the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR), the oldest and largest interfaith peace organization in the United States.

The delegation learned first-hand about the lives of ordinary Iranians, even as international tensions continue to rise amidst new trade prohibitions (sanctions) and increased U.S./NATO/Israeli military preparations for a possible attack.

The civilian diplomats were scheduled to visit cultural and historic centers in Tehran (the capital), Qom (the world center of Shi’a theology), Isfahan (the legendary capital of medieval Persia), and Shiraz (a jewel of classical Islamic culture).
