'Wednesday July 9: National Call-in Day on Iran Blockade Resolutions'

By NIAC via CASMII ∙ July 8, 2008

Wednesday, July 9 is a national call-in day for H.Con.Res 362, the blockade resolution.

H.Con.Res.362 has over 220 cosponsors; is yours one?

Call your member of Congress and ask him or her not to support a blockade on Iran.

Congress is considering this bill at this very moment; now is the time to act to oppose this plan for war. Groups from all over the country are joining together for a national call-in day on H.Con.Res. 362.

This resolution demands that the president initiate an international effort to impose a land, sea, and air blockade on Iran to stop shipments of gasoline, and to subject all cargo entering or leaving Iran to stringent inspection requirements.

Call your representative and ask him or her to oppose the blockade resolution.

Imposing a blockade without United Nations authorization (which the resolution does not call for) would be considered an act of war. Though a vote on this bill has been successfully delayed so far, some Congressional sources say the House could vote on it as early as next week. They need to hear from you before the vote.

Adoption of this resolution would pave the way for war and bypass diplomacy. The immediate effect would be a further increase in oil prices - with gas prices in the US inching closer to $7/gallon and beyond.
