Lift the Sanctions Now – Stop Coronavirus!
As the US tightens sanctions on Iran, our country is responsible for impacting that nation’s ability to fight off the coronavirus pandemic. With 21,000 cases and over 1,000 new cases a day, basic medicines are in short supply. And if the US sanctions are successful in their goal of topping the regime, we can expect a new wave of refugees — many of whom will carry the virus.
