German Activists to German Pols and Business Leaders: Stop Appeasing Tehran

German activists are raising an outcry over what they characterize as a growing „offensive of promoting German-Iran relations“ on the part of German politicians and businesspeople that they believe is undercutting hard-won gains in the cooperative EU and U.S. effort to isolate Iran’s government via sanctions.

Members of Stop the Bomb, a coalition of German intellectuals dedicated to preventing Iran from attaining nuclear weapons, protested a November 22 meeting of the Iran Business Forum, a business networking group that hosted numerous Iranian officials at a Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Hamburg, Germany. Iranian Ambassador to Germany Ali Reza Sheikh Attar, a close confidant of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and a member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, which has been designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department, reportedly gave the event’s opening speech, according to the event program.

UANI Announces Launch of National Advertising Campaign Surrounding UNGA and G-20

New York, NY — United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) today announced the launch of a multi-tiered national advertising campaign targeted around the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, NY and the Group of 20 Leaders in Pittsburgh, PA.

The campaign includes UANI’s third national television advertisement „Shame,“ as well as online and street advertising.  „Shame“ will run nationally for several weeks on CNN, FOX News, and MSNBC.  Street advertising includes billboards, kiosks, and busses in New York and Pittsburgh.  The ads urge all Americans to take action.

Speaking about UANI’s ad campaign, UANI President Ambassador Mark D. Wallace said „Multinational corporations that do business in Iran support a brutal theocratic dictatorship and provide economic support for Iran’s illegal nuclear weapons program. We must make these corporations know that short term profit cannot be used as an excuse to support a regime that is a danger to global security.  Americans can make business decisions and take action that will affect these corporations‘ business ties in Iran.  We send a clear message to the G-20 and the UN that the time to impose more sanctions and to apply financial pressure on Iran is now.“

UANI Applauds General Electric for Refusing to Do Business with Iran

New York, NY — General Electric (GE) today signed United Against Nuclear Iran’s (UANI’s) Iran Business Declaration, affirming that it does not and will not conduct business in or with Iran. UANI applauds GE for its decision. 

The UANI Business Declaration and GE’s corporate citizenship and international trade control policies ensure that GE does not do business in Iran or other countries designated as State Sponsors of Terrorism.

As part of its pledge, GE will provide humanitarian health care products to the Iranian people that suffer under the repression of a theocratic dictatorship.  GE will donate any profits earned from this assistance to charitable organizations including the International Rescue Committee, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping refugees and victims of armed conflict around the world.  Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
