Iranians and Americans Say No To War

Thanks to Homeyra for pointing out this splendid grassroots joint American-Iranian initiative, Enough Fear.

Check them out, and if you’re American or Iranian, consider participating in this great cause. UPDATE (see comments): Anyone can participate, regardless of country of origin.

About the campaign

The Enough Fear campaign is an international effort to prevent war between the US and Iran. We are collecting photos of Americans and Iranians on this website to demonstrate our solidarity in this cause.

While the photos are the most visible part of this campaign, we hope to expand it in the future and use creative nonviolent action to pressure both sides of this conflict to work toward a peaceful solution. If you have ideas on how Iranians and Americans can work together on this project, please email ideas@enoughfear.org.

The Enough Fear campaign was created by The Action Mill, the same people who founded Turn Your Back on Bush in the wake of the 2004 US Presidential election. We create non-violent direct actions, events, websites, and other tools for progressive organizations, grassroots groups and campaigns.

    Thank you dear PPGG and thank you Servant.

    From FAQ:
    Can I
    participate if I’m not from the US or Iran?

    Yes! We welcome anyone to upload their photo, get on our email list, and join the campaign. We hope to get participants from around the world.

    Homeyra also turned me on to this site. I have added the link to the Lair and will be preparing photos soon.

    It’s time for a change of perspective.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
