Code Pink's Apology to the Iranian People

CODEPINK.ORG White House Dear Duncan,

These are indeed terrifying times. Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement is reckless, baseless and dangerous. We cannot allow him to take us down the path towards war with Iran.

Join us in reaching out to the Iranian people with an apology for our president’s unscrupulous behavior and a pledge to try to reverse this decision. We will publicize this “Apology to the Iranian People” via social media and publications inside Iran. You can sign anonymously or publicly.

Dear Friends,

Urgent: MA bill to open gates to water privatization

Hi All, 

 
As everyone is in the midst of actions to stop the violence in Palestine right now, I am hoping some of you have bandwidth for one more action.
 
I just found out that language has been inserted into a MA bill introduced by Charlie Baker for climate change adaptation that would open the door to water privatization in MA.

Standing for Justice with Ahed Tamimi and Betty McCollum

Sixteen-year-old Ahed Tamimi and 63-year-old Rep. Betty McCollum don’t have much in common but they do share this: they have both courageously focused attention on Israel’s criminal behavior, and have been vilified for doing so.
Ahed was arrested in the middle of the night on December 19, when the Israeli army invaded her home in the tiny West Bank village of Nabi Saleh.  Three days earlier she had been videotaped by her mother Nariman slapping an Israeli soldier five seconds after the soldier slapped her and shortly after her 14-year-old cousin Mohammad had been seriously wounded by being shot point blank in the face by a rubber bullet.  The army had just fired tear gas at the family’s home, as it has done on numerous occasions during Ahed’s childhood.
