The progressive activist organization, MoveOn.org, is calling for a Day of Action to protest against war with Iran on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 5 pm.
MoveOn.org Civic Action is a progressive 501(c)(4) organization which primarily focuses on nonpartisan education and advocacy on national issues.
As of this writing the closest event scheduled in Southwest Florida is a protest scheduled at the Charlotte County Courthouse in Punta Gorda.
“We will not be forced into another war. On Thursday, January 9, at 5 p.m. local time, the anti-war majority in this country will get visible to oppose Trump’s war and say #NoWarWithIran,” states the organization’s “No War with Iran” website.
“Trump’s reckless action has needlessly endangered countless lives of U.S. troops, Iraqis, Iranians, and countless other civilians. The devastation that a war with Iran could bring upon the earth and humanity cannot be overstated—millions of lives hang in the balance,” it states. “When Trump acts with ignorance, fear, and ego, we will act with diplomacy and prioritize what is best for humanity. We are the majority. We stand united. And we oppose Trump’s war with Iran.”
