Don't Attack Iran petition delivered to White House - video, audio and photos available

Charles Jenks, Traprock Peace Center

May 22, 2006

On May 18th, hundreds rallied against war in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, and a large delegation led by Cindy Sheehan delivered the Don't Attack Iran petition, with over 42,000 signatures, to the White House. Administration officials would not take the petition from the delegation, so the delegation left the petition at the gate.

Watch videos of this historic event, including the dramatic delivery of the petition to the White House, download mp3 audio of the rally and see the 75 photograph album of the rally and petition delivery at http://www.traprockpeace.org/iran_petition_video.html

Holly Near (with Pat Humprhies and Sanda Opatow accompanying), Cindy Sheehan, Rev. Lennox Yearwood (Hip Hop Caucus), Ray McGovern (former CIA official), Medea Benjamin with a CODE PINK contingent, and David Swanson (AfterDowingStreet) appear in distinct videos. The rally audio is available for download at the above link.

More multimedia reports, including Traprock's coverage, are available at http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/node/10827

The Joint Rally was organized by the Network of Spiritual Progressives ( spiritualprogressives.org ) and the Don't Attack Iran (afterdowningstreet.org/iran) campaign, and facilitated by Rabbi Michael Lerner. The rally was followed by delivery of the petition (still accepting signatures) telling President Bush to not attack Iran.

Many organizations supported the Don't Attack Iran petition, including in chronological order: Gold Star Families for Peace, CODE PINK, Progressive Democrats of America, Democrats.com, Traprock Peace Center, Global Exchange, Velvet Revolution, Democracy Rising, Truthout, OpEdNews, Backbone Campaign, Consumers For Peace [ExxonMobil War Boycott], Campus Antiwar Network, The Young Turks, Citizens for Legitimate Government, Counter Punch, United for Peace and Justice, Stop the War Coalition, This Can't Be Happening, Voters Evolt, Springs Action Alliance, Radio News America, OrbStandard, International Socialist Organization, Voters for Peace. See the full list of supporters at http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/iran

Following the rally and delivery of the petition to the White House, Ray McGovern, U.S. Army veteran and retired 27-year CIA analyst, led a march through downtown Washington, D.C., to the home of Donald Rumsfeld, where protesters gathered to ask Rumsfeld why he lied about the need for a war on Iraq. http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/rumsfeld
