Weekly Recap: Help Prevent War Vs. Iran, More!

Supporters of the Hashed al-Shaabi paramilitary force attend the funeral procession of Iraqi paramilitary chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani, and eight others in the capital Baghdad's district of al-Jadriya, near the high-security Green Zone, on January 4, 2020. - Thousands of Iraqis chanting "Death to America" joined the funeral procession for Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani and Muhandis, both killed in a US air strike. The cortege set off around Kadhimiya, a Shiite pilgrimage district of Baghdad, before heading to the Green Zone government and diplomatic district where a state funeral was to be held attended by top dignitaries. In all, 10 people -- five Iraqis and five Iranians -- were killed in Friday morning's US strike on their motorcade just outside Baghdad airport.

Tell Congress to Stop Trump Now, Before
He Launches An Illegal, Destructive War!

As we explained yesterday, Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) and our partners have long opposed Neoconservatives’ strategic designs on Iran—over its oil reserves and its role in Middle East power dynamics as well as its proximity to Russia.

Join us calling on the Congress to reassert its constitutional authority over war powers by passing a resolution demanding diplomacy and deescalation—and explicitly withholding authorization for any and all reckless and provocative abuses of military power before this crisis explodes into open warfare.

Tell Congress to Pass an Emergency
Resolution to Prevent War With Iran!

Tell Congress To Act On Climate!

We must undertake a World War Two-level mobilization to free our society from our fossil fuels addiction, or we literally cannot survive. Half measures will not save us; we must be all in.

There are hundreds of overt or tacit climate deniers in Congress, as well as Trump—who claims that climate change is a hoax by China—presiding over our executive branch. This is an existential threat. Congress must act now and stay active until we consign climate denial to the trash heap of history.

No One Is Above The Law

PDA has been leading the effort to hold Trump accountable. Join us as we support impeachment. Alan Minsky, said, “There is no question that Donald Trump is guilty of high crimes in office, constituting impeachable acts.

The House performed its constitutional duty by impeaching this lawless president, and the Senate is similarly obligated to convict and remove him from office.”
