Unless otherwise noted, we meet daily as follows:
  • 4 pm -- Finance Committee Meeting, Downtown Johnny Brown's, Mon. thru Friday
    • Each committee should send a representative to this meeting! Budget is currently being defined.

This is the 100th anniversary of the San Diego Free Speech Fight, when city council prohibited soapbox oration centered at Fifth and E streets in the Stingaree District (Gaslamp). Prosecutors charged those arrested on felony charges of conspiracy, and police brutality was common. The Free Speech League sought to bring the cases up to jury trials to clog the system. There were an estimated 5,000 involved in one protest, with 41 arrested. The views of the Free Speech movement were similar to Occupy, on the wealth divide, worker's rights and later on, First Amendment rights. The circumstances of the movement are echoed today.

[SDCPJ] FW: [unac] No War with Iran




Date: Thu, 19 Jan 2012 15:07:48 -0500
From: unacpeace@gmail.com
To: unac@lists.riseup.net
Subject: [unac] No War with Iran

UNAC

 

  (please forward widely)

  

Below is a statement by the UNAC CC on the assassination of Iranian scientists and the growing threat of war against Iran.

 

Also, UNAC members participated in a national conference call on Tuesday with many other antiwar and Iranian groups.  The meeting called for demonstrations on February 4 to protest the threat of war against Iran.  Please join us on February 4 and plan a protest in your local area.  There is a Facebook event for February 4 here: http://www.facebook.com/events/214341975322807/

 

 

 

Statement by the United National Anti-War Coalition (UNAC)

 on the Assassination of Iranian Scientist Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan

and the Growing Threat of War Against the Islamic Republic of Iran

 

 

Another Iranian scientist has been assassinated in Iran by a car bombing. This is the fifth Iranian scientist targeted in Iran during the past two years. This is a dangerous escalation of the covert activities conducted by the CIA and Israeli intelligence and their domestic spies in Iran against the government and people of Iran.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated, "I want to categorically deny any United States involvement in any kind of act of violence inside Iran." However, both the Israeli and the U.S. governments have admitted to covert activity in Iran. Irrespective of the actors, the assassination of law-abiding scientists living and working in Iran is a reprehensible act that should be condemned by all.

The fact is that the governments of the U.S. and Israel have declared Iran to be their enemy and have publicly stated that they will use all means possible, up to and including military attack, to stop the production of nuclear energy in Iran and to change the government of Iran. To this end, they have admitted to:

1 - Using hacking to disrupt nuclear energy facilities in Iran

2 - Conducting covert operations in Iran

3 - Deploying spy drones to Iran

4 - Imposing draconian sanctions and embargo against Iranian oil exports, banking and trade

5 - Deploying U.S. nuclear super carrier battle groups with destroyers and nuclear submarines to the Persian Gulf

6 - Threatening Iran with military attack

7 - Planning to hold in January the largest ever joint military exercises with Israel

The assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists falls within the covert activities in disrupting nuclear energy production in Iran. In addition, it works to create an atmosphere of fear among other Iranian scientists who want to work in their field of study. This is similar to the right-wing assassinations of physicians in the U.S. who perform the procedure of abortion, which is legal in the U.S. The terrorists who kill scientists aim to make it difficult for the Iranian nuclear energy industry to find scientists who would work there. However, the people of Iran have repeatedly stated their resolve to defend their right to nuclear energy.

Considering that Hillary Clinton threatened Iran with military attack, it is disingenuous for her to state that the U.S. denies involvement in any act of violence within Iran. A military attack on Iran, especially an attack on Iran's nuclear energy facilities, would produce results similar to a nuclear attack. (U.S. Concerned Scientists report.) It would be the most violent act against the people of Iran, resulting in hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths.

All the actions listed above, sanctioned by the U.S. government, are intended to weaken the Iranian government and economy, create an atmosphere of fear and dissatisfaction among the people, increase unrest, and decrease trust, all in the service of making it easier for a military attack on Iran. Of course, so far these actions have only strengthened the Iranian people's resolve to protect their country against Imperialism.

Similar U.S. actions are aimed at any government which fails to submit to the U.S. corporate domination. This disobedience or defiance by Iran is its real "crime."

It is extremely important that all international and especially U.S. antiwar and progressive organizations condemn these acts of assassination of innocent citizens as well as all forms of violent and aggressive actions by U.S. and Israel.

1- Condemn the assassination of Iranian scientists

2 - End all sanctions against Iran

3 - End covert activities inside Iran

4 - End all war threats against Iran

"No war, No Sanctions, No Internal Intervention in Iran!"

GREYHOUND BUS INCIDENT

  • Greyhound corporate has fired Don Ainsworth.
  • Comment by Alan Riner, one of the Amarillo 13:
Well my friends, I found out that Don Ainsworth was fired yesterday. I belive that the corporate machine fired Don to eliminate a much larger problem being brought to attention of the masses. Greyhound needs to take responsibility for the problem with drivers through education in areas like people skills training and anger management. I am angry that greyhound decided to handle the situation in this manner,and I Belive he should be rehired. When Don goes through the classes he should be reinstated. With the hard economic time in which we are faceing I as a person the whole hartedly belive that no one needs to loose their job and that is not or was not the intention. this is just my opinion....
