ACTIONS LISTED BELOW ARE PRIOR TO APRIL 2020 AND INCLUDE MANY RELATED TO SPECIFIC COUNTRIES AS WELL AS THE MARCH 13-15, 2020 INTERNATIONAL DAYS OF ACTION AGAINST US-SPONSORED SANCTIONS.

Utmost  concern and solidarity for all the world’s peoples dealing with the coronavirus situation. Check your local activists to confirm local events during these March 13-15 (and beyond) International Days of Action Against Sanctions and Economic War. The Sanctions Kill effort is building awareness of the extent and insidious impact of this new form of US imposed warfare, both within progressive movements and among the working masses and oppressed as a whole. Our challenge is to continue to find creative ways to “get the message out,” including in the 2020 US election campaign and during the present coronavirus reality, and to give concrete solidarity wherever we can. (See, for example, the Code Pink Petition on Iran or the several social-media March 13-15 weekend actions listed below.) Please keep us informed of whatever future actions you are planning. A message from Italy is especially inspiring: “WILPF Italy  joins at Sanctions Kill: 13-15 days of action, but public initiatives cannot be made, for the health emergency – Corona Virus. We will sensitize with press releases in Rome e Livorno.”

 March 21-12, 2020: Virtual Conference: US Cuba Normalization: FB Info (scroll down). Webpage.

End U.S. Imposed Sanctions and Economic War!

Join or add a protest / teach-in / forum and/or other event in your area, for March 13-15, before and in future. Scroll down for March 13-15, 2020 actions by state and international.
