IRISH ANTI-WAR MOVEMENT (IAWM) PRESS RELEASE: 09 JANUARY 2020

• IRANIAN AND AMERICAN SPEAKERS TO CONDEMN TRUMP’S RECKLESS ACTIONS AT DÁIL PROTEST
• NO TO WAR WITH IRAN!
• STOP THIS SENSELESS WARMONGERING!
• US TROOPS OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST!
• US MILITARY OUT OF SHANNON!

The Irish Anti-War Movement will hold a protest at Dáil Éireann this evening at 5.30pm to condemn the assassination of Iranian General Qaseem Suleimani, Iraqi Commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis and others by a US air strike at Baghdad airport on 03 January.

Iranian, American and Irish speakers will join the protest and condemn the escalation towards another war in the region.

Speakers so far include:

• Dr. Roja Fazaeli, Iranian / Irish citizen and academic
• Dr. Harry Brown, journalist, academic and US citizen
• Glenda Cimino, US citizen and member of the IAWM Steering Committee
• Richard Boyd Barrett TD and President of the IAWM

The IAWM regards this act as a blatant, provocative act of war by the US Government against Iran. To assassinate the second most important leader of a soverign country is unprecedented and while it is the latest in a series of tit-for-tat strikes in the cold war between the US and Iran this reckless act seriously increases the danger of a new war in the middle east. We have already witnessed strong calls for revenge from Iran and we have seen retaliatory missile strikes by Iran against US military bases in Iraq.

If such a war develops it will lead to even more violence being inflicted on ordinary citizens throughout the Middle East who have suffered terribly over the last 20 years from US sanctions, invasion and occupation.

This escalation towards more war clearly puts the spotlight on the use of Shannon Airport by the US military and the IAWM would echo MEP’s Clare Daly’s analysis that the Irish Government has blood on its hands.

Suleimani’s assassination is the greatest US blunder since the 2003 invasion of Iraq. - LARA MARLOWE, IT, 080120

Suleimani’s assassination is the greatest US blunder since the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Until the US invaded Iraq, Iran’s only foothold abroad was a sliver of Lebanese territory where Hizbullah created a state within a state
In just five days it has all but ended the possibility of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, led the US state department to advise its citizens to leave several Muslim countries, and rallied millions of Iranians around a regime that was the object of furious protests only weeks ago.

The US-led coalition that was created to fight Isis has ceased operations to enable it to focus on protecting personnel in Iraq. Numerous commentators speculate that Isis could re-emerge as a result of Suleimani’s killing.
