New Jersey Peace Action Organizes  Emergency Rally to Protest Trump's Decision to Withdraw from Iran Nuclear Agreement! 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

May 8, 2018

Who:  New Jersey Peace Action (NJPA) is an affiliate of Peace Action and is celebrating its 61st anniversary this year. NJPA began its opposition to the 2nd Gulf War in the summer of 2002 and continues to this day to call for that war to end.  NJPA;s primary mission includes the abolition of nuclear weapons, ending and preventing wars and shifting federal spending priorities from war to peace. 

What:  In response to President Trump's decision on Tuesday, May 8th, to withdraw from the Iran Nuclear Agreement, New Jersey Peace Action, headquartered in Bloomfield, will have an Emergency Protest Rally calling for our leaders to reverse that decision. In lieu of reversal, we ask that our Senators and Representatives speak out strongly against the withdrawal and stand firmly against renewing any sanctions against Iran, which international inspectors confirm is in compliance with the terms of the agreement. 

Where: 5 Points Vigil corner in Montclair, NJ - corner of Church St., S. Fullerton Ave. and Bloomfield Ave.

When: Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM.

Why:  The Iran deal is the only diplomatic agreement in place in the Middles East. It is it totally short-sighted to walk away from it. It could lead to another war. The United States, the region and the world cannot afford another US war of aggression.
