|The assassination of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani is an act of war by Donald Trump. The act was carried out in Baghdad, violating all agreements with the Iraqi government. Trump has further threatened attacks on 52 Iranian targets, including cultural sites. Iran has said it will retaliate, and there is huge opposition to this action both in Iran and Iraq, where the parliament has voted for US troops to leave.
Trump has been heading for war since tearing up the nuclear deal with Iran and if he succeeds will create a bigger war than we have seen in the Middle East. It will draw in major players across the region including Israel, Saudi Arabia and possibly Russia.
We must do everything we can to oppose war with Iran and attacks on Iraq. This begins with a public meeting in London tomorrow (Wednesday 8th Jan) and a demonstration on Saturday.
