"The U.S. peace movement is going to make or break this deal because this deal is now in the hands of Congress. This is an opportunity to stop a war before it starts. This is the chance to put the threat of a war with Iran off of the table. And for once instead of saying, 'Every option is on the table,' we actually have peace on the table."

– Jamal Abdi, National Iranian American Council Action executive director, on the fight ahead in Congress to defend the international Iran nuclear accord

U.S. Peace Movement Must Mobilize to Prevent Congress from Killing the Iran Nuclear Accord

MP3 Interview with Jamal Abdi, National Iranian American Council Action executive director, conducted by Scott Harris

iran

Iran, the United States and permanent members of the UN Security Council – Britain, France, Russia and China along with Germany – signed a historic agreement in Vienna on July 14 that is designed to limit Iran's nuclear capabilities to peaceful, civilian purposes. In exchange, the UN will over time lift economic sanctions, allowing the Islamic Republic to resume international trade and gain access to billions of dollars that had been frozen. The 15-member UN Security Council unanimously approved the accord on July 20, as did the European Union.  Story continues

U.S., Russian Military Escalation in Ukraine Could Lead to Dangerous Unintended Consequences

MP3 Interview with Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus in Russian Studies and Politics at New York University and Princeton, conducted by Scott Harris

Recent press reports from Ukraine detail long-repeated charges that Russia’s military is supplying both troops and heavy weapons to pro-Russian separatists fighting to preserve the break-away self-proclaimed Donetsk and Luhansk People's Republics in the eastern part of the country. The pro-western government in Kiev warns that a troop buildup near the Russian-Ukraine border could signal a possible attack on the city of Mariupol this summer.  Story continues

Apache Tribal Activists Fight to Reverse Land Grab of Sacred Arizona Site

MP3 Interview with Wendsler Nosie, tribal council member and former San Carlos Apache tribal chairman, conducted by Melinda Tuhus

Arizona's Republican Sen. John McCain has been the focus of recent news headlines after GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump charged that McCain wasn't a hero for the time he spent in a North Vietnamese prison camp during the Vietnam War. That statement caused politicians from across the political spectrum to come to McCain's defense. But there's another group of people who don't consider McCain a hero – the 15,000 members of the San Carlos Apache tribe in McCain's home state of Arizona. The tribe is angry because McCain, and Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, attached an 11th hour rider to the National Defense Authorization Act last December that set up a swap of 2,400 acres of federal land, called Oak Flat campground, which is held as sacred by the Apaches. Under the terms of the land swap, Oak Flat will be traded to Resolution Copper Mining, a subsidiary of British-Australian mining conglomerate Rio Tinto, in return for more than twice as many acres in the state owned by the company. Oak Flat is not part of the Apache reservation, but has been set aside for their use for decades due to its cultural and religious significance. The tribe had no opportunity for meaningful input into the decision. The mining company has promised to create thousands of jobs and generate millions of dollars in tax revenue.  Story continues
