How have threats of deepening sanctions and a new 
U.S.-led war on Iran affected the broader Middle 
East? How would an expanded war affect Iranians 
and their neighbors? How does the conflict with 
Iran relate to the U.S. occupation of Iraq, the 
2006 Israeli invasion of Lebanon, and 
intensifying Israeli attacks against and 
occupation of Palestine? Why is the United States 
escalating a conflict with Iran by focusing on 
its alleged nuclear ambitions? How can the 
anti-war movement in the United States grow and 
resist an attack against Iran? What would 
solidarity with the Iranian people look like?

Please join Adalah-NY for an urgent teach-in and discussion on these issues.
