“Trump has put us in this position with his military brinksmanship,” she said. “We must de-escalate immediately, protect American lives & move to diplomacy not war. This is a critical time for the American people to be heard.”

Jayapal’s tweet linked to a tweet by move on.

“Thousands of people nationwide will take to the streets on Thursday, January 9 to oppose Trump’s illegal war and say #NoWarWithIran,” said the MoveOn tweet. “Sign up for an event near you at NoWarWithIran.org.”

The “NoWarWithIran.org” website says: “We will not be forced into another war. On Thursday, January 9, at 5 p.m. local time, the anti-war majority in this country will get visible to oppose Trump’s war and say #NoWarWithIran.”

“When Trump acts with ignorance, fear, and ego, we will act with diplomacy and prioritize what is best for humanity,” says the site. “We are the majority. We stand united. And we oppose Trump’s war with Iran.”
