'No War On Iran' Billboards up in Oklahoma City

Oklahoma activists from the group Americans Against the Next War (AANW) are working to prevent military action or war against Iran. The group funded three billboards, now on display in the Oklahoma City metro area, that read: “Tell Congress: No War on Iran.”

A news conference was held on July 10, at the State Capitol in Oklahoma City, to announce the billboards, their locations, and present the coalition of churches, organizations and individuals that support the project.

Speakers at the event included Dr. Katherine Scheirman, Col. USAF (ret); Bob Lemon, Oklahoma City philanthropist and human rights activist; and John Scripsick, Gold Star father whose son was killed in Iraq. Director of the Peace House Nathaniel Batchelder was the event emcee.

It's nice to finally see some

It's nice to finally see some churches come together and practice what they preach regarding peace.

Good link. The truth is in

Good link. The truth is in the fine print.

Become S.A.N.E.

+1. thanks for posting, its good to see the anti-war movement is alive & getting active.
The war-mongers /demons even talk of using tactical nuclear weapons as bunker busters, they say Iran's nuclear facilities are concealed underground - hence the demons need deep penetration missiles /explosives. You can imagine the implications to/for the whole neighborhood /environment.

They used DU (Depleted Uranium) in Iraq, = horrible consequences /reports.

Therefore its important & necessary for the anti-war movement to also call for sanity, =
S.A.N.E = Society Against Nuclear Explosives.
not mad, =
M.A.D. = Mutually Assured Destruction.

Nice job

I wish some people in Virginia and Maryland get together and put up a similar billboard near DC.

Tell congress ??

In case you missed the speech from Leon Panetta. Congress has no voice or vote in a decision to attack Iran. This is a NWO I mean a UN matter.

:-O

Way t' go Oklahoma!!

I've been beating the anti-war drum here in Ontario without much backing. Maybe I don't beat loudly enough? We are going to war if we don't come together and tell the psycho neo-CONS to back off. Romney has 23 of his 30 foreign policy advisors from the Bush team? Why would any liberty-minded voter pull any lever for him that doesn't include a trap door?

Thanx,

An excellent form of local activism

.

thank you, i hadn't seen this

thank you, i hadn't seen this. What a great organization. re-shared on FB.

I must be getting all jaded

I must be getting all jaded and cynical. The first thing I thought of when I saw this headline was all those Oklahoma Baptists driving by these billboards on their way to to church this morning and cursing those evil liberals who must be behind this billboard for not "supporting the troops".

It is great to see this here and in Isreal

but it will not make a difference. It is the vast minority, who are criminally insane, who will get it through. Remember, the US has allowed propaganda to be openly on the books now. They will manipulate the people more and more.

This is happening in Israel as well

...there was a recent poll in Israel and only 19% of Israeli's support a strike on Iran....You will NEVER see or hear about any of this on The FAUX Jews Nitwit Network or any other msm for that matter.

I wish

that instead of being anti war those signs were pro peace.

Tell congress: We want peace with Iran!

sounds a lot better to me.

Whatever works.

People cogitate differently.

Thanx,

Jason

good idea

As long as the message works to help stop the next war it's great.

Well if the message is "We

Well if the message is "We want peace" it's a lot harder to argue against, I mean who would argue for no peace? We kind of fall into our own trap when the argument is between wanting war and not wanting war.

Some might argue

that making war insures our peace. Or so the war mongers seem to believe.

good point

Still too many Americans think that it's ok to go around ther world and 'bomb countries into democracy and peace'.

Great idea, except it should be

addressed to the PRESIDENT Dictator-Obama, who declares war by executive order. Congress no longer has a say.

Congress should do its job

and Impeach Obama -- then illegal wars would stop.
