Report: CASMII members in NY antiwar demonstraition

On April 29, the streets of New York City echoed with the chants, songs and shouts of at least 350,000 people from across the United States. Mobilized around the call to end the war in Iraq now, to say no to any attack on Iran, and to support the rights and dignity of immigrants and women, and all people, the marchers brought a renewed urgency to the clear demand for change.


Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran (CASMII) was visible in the march with their tri color banners theme of Iranian flag that relayed their mission statement of “no sanction or  military intervention in Iran “ .



At the march's conclusion in Foley Square, a vibrant sea of flags, banners and signs welcomed marchers to the Festival. Issue tents featured speakers, literature, educational activities, t-shirt sales, food and music highlighting the key issues of the wide-ranging March coalition: the war in Iraq and threats of war and U.S. nuclear attacks on Iran,  counter-recruitment campaigners, a Labor tent featuring the NYC Labor Chorus, and others.



Casmii’s 2006 plan of action in  coming months is  to:


  • Work to prevent a pre-emptive war on Iran
  • Continue to put people into the streets in marches and rallies and vigils;
  • Convene organizing conferences for Casmii  member groups, which will include skill-building workshops and training in building stronger, broader coalitions.
  • Bridge the cultural differences and initiating more dialogue among Iranian Americans and Americans
  • Organize public forums along with scholars and experts to  educate the public regarding myths and facts bout Iran

CASMII is a  citizen's group that it's focal mission is non intervention or attack in Iran, and it is independent of all governments and political position.
