Press Conference and Divestment from Iran

Cross-posted at Rosemary's Thoughts.

There is going to be press conference today in Washington, DC, to garner the attention of our Congressmembers and, hopefully, all government officials across this country. I would appreciate it if you are close enough, please attend this conference. If you are unable to, then please check out this information.

    Taking Action against the Iranian Nuclear Threat
    All U.S. Presidential Candidates Invited

    Confirmed Speakers from The Israel Project's Board of Advisors Include:
    U.S. Rep. Brad Sherman, U.S Rep. Eliot Engel,

    What: Unveiling of a 75,000-signature petition calling for Iran to halt its nuclear program and support of terrorism. Iran's nuclear program and support of terrorism are funded in part through U.S. companies and state pension funds. Thus, the petition is being delivered to companies that do business in or with Iran; every U.S. state treasurer and governor; every U.S. senator and U.S. representative; 183 heads of state; every ambassador assigned to the United States and every ambassador assigned to the United Nations; major religious leaders including the Pope and the Dalai Lama; and the head of the IAEA.

For the Press Kit, I have to write this is the next article. As soon as I do, I will be back with the URL. Thank you.

Here is the link of the Kit that I promised: Press Kit for Iran Divestment. Remember to search for more references so that you can either be sure or dismiss any links that are true or false. I believe them to be true, that is why I am doing this. I just want you to feel free to do the same. Have a great day!
