Raise Their Voices: Oppose a Military Strike on Iran

connect on facebook

Join us in urging President Obama, members of Congress, and other US officials to oppose a military strike on Iran on human rights grounds. (If you live outside the US, click here.)

Many prominent Iranian human rights lawyers, activists, journalists, and artists expressed concerns about a potential attack by the US or its allies. They warned that a military conflict would deepen Iran's human rights crisis, provide a pretext for the full militarization of the state, and even rally many reform-oriented citizens to the side of the government. It would strengthen the regime while undercutting the human rights and democratic aspirations of millions of ordinary Iranians. Washington should heed these concerns.
