The Iranian Agreement

In 2015, the US under the Obama administration, along with Russia, China, Britain, France, Germany and the European Union, agreed on a landmark nuclear deal with Iran. Basically the negotiations created a way "to restrict Iran's nuclear program in exchange for economic benefits." During an intense campaign to undercut the agreement, in a shocking move some called a breach of diplomatic protocol, Republican John Boehner, the then Speaker of the House, invited Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to address Congress in February 2015.

ACTION ALERT: Tell U.S. to Join Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons Possession

Tell U.S. to Join Treaty Banning Nuclear Weapons Possession A treaty on the prohibition of nuclear weapons was adopted on July 7th 2017. We need to tell every nation to sign on, including the nuclear nations, and including the United States. Please sign and share this petition calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons. If the U.S. signs the Ban Treaty, other nations will follow. Ridding the world of nuclear weapons is long overdue. These weapons should be abolished before their use abolishes us.
