The U.S. has been at continuous war for the past 18 years since the start of the "War on Terror".  In that time the U.S. has invaded, occupied and toppled the regimes in Afghanistan and Iraq and waged an unprecedented drone war around the world.  The Trump administration has brought us to the brink of a shooting war with Iran as recently as June 20th.  That threat is still there. Sanctions have wreaked havoc on the Iranian economy and civil society. Iran's currency is worth 1/15 of what is was in 2012, before the sanctions were imposed by the Obama administration. The "Joint and Comprehensive" agreement in 2016 gave a respite and a way out to resolve the nuclear and military tensions in the region, as well as the economic burden placed on Iran.  The Trump administration's withdrawing of the U.S. out of the "Iran deal", and the re-imposition of sanctions, has put the U.S. on a war path with no other option in sight.  Please come to this meet up to discuss how to organize and coordinate efforts, to "Return to the Deal" and  "Lift the Sanctions"- to prevent this war as well as discuss ongoing efforts to rebuild a visible anti-war movement. We will discuss ideas on how to raise awareness, potential resolutions in city councils (i.e. Chicago can't afford another War), and how to reach out to various groups (e.g. Immigrant vets who face deportations, Iraq/Afghanistan vets , Unions, homeless coalition, etc.).
