July 19th: Don’t Attack Iran! Die-in at Pelosi’s Home!

16 07 2008

Saturday, July 19th, 4PM

2640 Broadway (between Scott & Divisadero) in SF

Come Die-in at Speaker Pelosi’s home to demonstrate the human cost of any potential attack on Iran by the United States or its allies. There will be a non-arrestable component of the demonstration featuring an altar to those who may die in any attack. Please bring photos, candles, notes, mementos or anything else regarding Iranian people to leave as a permanent altar on Pelosi’s doorstep.

As the Bush administration maneuvers to bomb Iran, Congress has been a willing enabler of the administration’s crimes of aggression. Pelosi is one of the “gang of eight” – congressional leaders that granted the administration the powers (and $400 Mil.) for covert operations inside Iran to destabilize the regime and potentially clear the path for war. Congress and Speaker Pelosi have the ability to stop the administration’s war plans. They can pass a resolution requiring congressional approval for any future military action. Instead Congress is considering H. Con. Res. 362, a resolution that calls for the enforcement of sanctions and a possible military blockade, yet another step in the escalation to war.

Why her house? A die-in at Pelosi’s home will highlight the human cost of the bombing, in residential neighborhoods like Pelosi’s, and it’ll get her attention. She represents an anti-war district – her constituents are serious about ending our current wars and preventing any future ones. As Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi can do more to block the administration’s efforts for another murderous war.

Actions on the weekend of July 19th will coincide with UFPJ’s national call for action on July 19-21. Co-Sponsors include United for Peace and Justice, Act Against Torture, Direct Action to Stop the War, Code Pink, Global Exchange, the Ecumenical Peace Institute, World Can’t Wait, Labor committee for Peace and Justice, East Bay Coalition in Support of Self Rule by Iraqis, Stop Funding the War Coalition, Veterans for Peace, Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists, Stop AIPAC, and Iraq Moratorium.
