STOP THE BOMB welcomes new US-sanctions against Iran

Press release, November 4, 2018

Press release, Berlin |Vienna, November 4, 2018

The coalition STOP THE BOMB welcomes the new US sanctions against the Iranian dictatorship. Maximum pressure on the Iranian regime is needed to counter the dangers of Iran’s nuclear and missile programs, the continued threats against Israel, Iran’s aggressive expansionist policies in the region and against the brutal oppression of the Iranian people and their struggle for freedom. The coalition STOP THE BOMB is working for an isolation of the Iranian regime and for support of the Iranian opposition.

Stephan Grigat, the academic director of STOP THE BOMB Austria comments: "Instead of supporting the antisemitic terror regime in Iran, the EU should consider the new US-sanctions as an opportunity to rethink their policies. Europe’s Iran policy has proven to be illusory. It neither succeeded in improving the situation in Iran, nor in the region. The Iranian nuclear program was not ended through the nuclear deal, instead it has been institutionalized and legalized."

The coalition STOP THE BOMB calls for substantial changes regarding Germany’s Iran-policy: No support for the regime in Teheran but every kind of support for the democratic, secular opposition.
