Iranian-American Community in San Diego calls for a demonstration against military action or sanctions on Iran

 

The San Diego Chapter of Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran (CASMII), has called for a demonstration against military action on Iran, to be held on Saturday May 6, 2006, from 12:00 to 2:00 P.M. in front of the Federal Building in downtown, San Diego.

 

 

 

CASMII and the Iranian American community of San Diego has been increasingly alarmed by President Bush’s refusal to rule out a U.S. nuclear attack on Iran, if Iran doesn't halt its uranium enrichment activities and his April 18th ,statement : "All options are on the table." A nuclear attack on a non-nuclear-armed Iran would have close to 3 million casualties, per U.S. Government’s own estimates.

 

CASMII spokesperson, Ali Golchin said “Eleven years of sanctions against Iraq did nothing to change the regime and caused the death of close to one-half million Iraqi children.  The Iraq war has done nothing to bring peace and stability to the people of Iraq at the cost thus far of $277,499,785,673 with human loss of over 2,500 of our soldiers dead and near 20,000 injured or crippled for life.  Iran is 3 times the population and size of Iraq, so, in case of a conventional war with Iran, the costs to the American people will triple that of Iraq. British Medical Journal Lancet estimates since the U.S. invasion 100,000 Iraqi civilians have been killed.”

 

Prominent physicist and university professors will speak at the event.

 

Co-Sponsored by: Peace Resource Center (www.prcsd.org), and San Diego Coalition for Peace (www.sdcpj.org).
