Groups worldwide call
'No War on Iran'

January 2020

Organizations across the globe successfully mobilized in response to the call for a Global Day of Protest on January 25 in solidarity with the people of Iran and the Middle East against US war and aggression.

The member organizations of the International League of Peoples’ Struggles (ILPS) and other allied organizations including the People’s Coalition on Food Sovereignty joined the global action.
In addition, 16 organizations from 12 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and West Asia issued a unity statement denouncing the warmongering of the US with Iran and its aggression in the whole of West Asia. Through the statement, the groups condemned the US government for "bullying" Iran by launching airstrikes and imposing sanctions that have caused decades-long distress and strife in the region.
