Kennedy Denounces California Senate Bill 731 Stripping Away Qualified Immunity For Law Enforcement

Pledges Federal Legislation To Give Qualified Immunity To Law Enforcement Nationwide

When I am elected, I will sponsor federal legislation that guarantees qualified immunity to all of our law enforcement officers nationwide”

— Ronda Kennedy

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CALIFORNIA , UNITED STATES, August 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today Ronda Kennedy, the Republican nominee for U.S. Congress in California’s Twenty-Sixth District, condemned California State Senate Bill – 731. The bill passed by the State Senate will strip away qualified immunity from police officers in California for acts performed in the line of duty. Under its provisions, a 9-person commission would be appointed and hold what is basically an administrative trial of an officer and allow for the police officer to be held financially liable for actions done in the performance of duty. Kennedy pointed out this commission would include under the bill’s provisions family members of victims of police violence and community organizations. She said this would allow personal biases to form opinions rather than the hard facts and is stacked against police officers. Kennedy further noted that officers could be judged by the color of their skin, their gender, their sexual orientation, religion or political affiliation. She also noted the bill also leaves potential conflicts between local entities and the new state structure, and could conflict with contractual provisions and, with the qualified immunity sections under federal rules.

Kennedy said that this was a kneejerk reaction to appease the defund police protesters and not based upon reason nor law. She said the passage of the bill was a slap in the face to the brave men and women who wear the blue and keep our communities safe. Kennedy noted legislation like this will lead to a continued exodus among law enforcement officers and discourage young men and women from entering law enforcement when our communities most need them with rising crime rates. She also called upon Congresswoman Julia Brownley to join her in denouncing the legislation.

“When I am elected, I will sponsor federal legislation that guarantees qualified immunity to all of our law enforcement officers nationwide,” said Ronda Kennedy. “Let me be perfectly clear, I will do everything in my power to give all tools necessary to our police officers nationwide so that they can effectively and safely do their jobs. This includes having qualified immunity.

“The men and women of law enforcement are true heroes,” continued Kennedy. “There is no other profession where you go to work not knowing if you will come home safely because of what your job requires. These men and women put their lives on the line for us daily to keep us safe. This legislation is an insult to their sacrifice. It is nothing but an appeasement of the rioters and looters who have terrorized our cities. Shame on the California legislature for passing it.”

Ronda Kennedy is currently a practicing lawyer in Ventura County as well as the Dean of a California law school. She lives in Oak Park with her husband Michael and is a mother of six including her seven-year-old triplets, Annabel, Bianca, and Liam.

Equal Opportunity Schools

Equal Opportunity Schools

Support Equal Opportunity Schools 8/28 to help ensure that black students have equitable access & opportunity to the rigorous high school courses they deserve.

SEATTLE, WA, USA, August 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Seattle, WA – Today, Equal Opportunity Schools, a Seattle-based national nonprofit announced they are celebrating #Give828, the national day of giving focused specifically on supporting black-led and black-benefitting organizations.

#Give828 isn’t like other fundraising campaigns. This day takes place during Black Philanthropy Month and commemorates multiple important historical landmarks in black American’s march toward freedom:
-August 28, 1955: 14-year-old Emmett Till was brutally murdered by three white men, which became a “flashpoint in the civil rights movement.”
-August 28, 1963: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his iconic “I Have A Dream” speech in Washington, D.C.
-August 28, 2005: Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana. The storm, which devastated New Orleans, inordinately impacted many of the city’s black residents.
-August 28, 2008: Then-Senator Barack Obama accepted the Democratic nomination for president, becoming the first black man to ever win the nomination and bid for the presidency.

#Give828 2020 comes at a critical time. The disproportionate deaths in black communities from COVID-19 and the recent killings of unarmed black people that have sparked waves of protests illustrate the critical need for resources in black communities. Equal Opportunity Schools is on the ground every day, ensuring our schools are providing equitable access and opportunity to rigorous high school courses for black students.

Which is why we need your support to continue the work.

Gravis Develops and Launches a 320 Character P2P Texting Platform For 2020 Political Campaigns

Gravis Marketing- P2P Texting

Gravis Marketing – P2P Texting

WINTER SPRINGS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The newly launched Gravis peer-to-peer texting platform makes reaching out to voters easier than ever with a simple solution for direct communication between campaign workers and the voting public. Strategically organizing a get-out-the-vote campaign requires a significant amount of planning and communication from the campaign, and peer-to-peer texting makes it easier to directly reach your targeted audience with the real-time messaging that you need to give your base the information they need to take action.

The new Gravis P2P texting platform features a 320 character peer-to-peer texting capability, giving your campaign the space necessary to send out single messages that are packed with as much information as possible.

Having real people texting real people matters in today’s campaigns. While there are plenty of campaigns that utilize bots to get out messages and imitate communication, those who are interested in helping the campaign are not going to fall for those tricks. To mobilize your base you need genuine connection and communication between those who are organizing and those who can get out and do the work, and peer to peer texting platforms helps to preserve privacy while encouraging direct communication between campaign workers.

The Gravis P2P messaging service makes it simple to set up a streamlined two-way communication between your campaign and the public, giving people the option to reply to text messages and ask questions to help mobilize your base. This means that there are real people who are sending real messages to other real people, using real phone numbers that are generated on the spot to prevent personal information from being shared unwillingly. This level of personal communication is likely to help your audience engage, rather than dismissing messages as spam and sending them to the trash. With the Gravis peer-to-peer texting platform, you can feel confident that your base is getting reached, that your organizers are getting support and that your campaign is getting the publicity it needs to move forward.

About Gravis Marketing

Gravis Marketing is a 10-year-old company with an A+ rating with the BBB. Gravis is a full-service political advertising company specializing in public opinion polls and P2P texting.

— Munawar Laghari

WASHINGTON , DC, USA, August 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — EngWashington DC, August 28, 2020

The Sindhi Foundation aims to put an end to the practice of enforced disappearance as well as address current and past disappearances by bringing perpetrators to justice. To this end, the Sindhi Foundation is organizing a conference featuring a number of international groups to commemorate the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, which is observed each year on August 30.

A very distinguished panel will join us virtually on August 30, 2020 at 11:00 am (US Eastern Time) to discuss the issue of enforced disappearances.

The Honorable Congressman Brad Sherman, a senior member of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee will offer a brief statement.

The speakers in the panel are, Luciano Hazan from Argentina, Chairman of United Nations Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, Mr. Sindhi Inam, a survivor of enforced disappearance from Sindh, Bhuchung Tsering from Washington D.C., the Vice President of the International Campaign for Tibet, Mr. Mahinthan Sivasubramani, Minister of Human Rights, Mass Atrocities and Prevention of Genocide with the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam, Ms. Rebiya Kadeer, Leader of the Uyghur National Movement, Mr. Leonce Byimana, Executive Director of Torture Abolition and Survivors Support Coalition International (TASSC), Mr. T Kumar, Senior Advisor of UNHR, and Munawar Laghari, Executive Director of the Sindhi Foundation. The program will be moderated by Mr. George “Billy” Hackett III.

In his message for the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said that the crime of enforced disappearances is rife across the world. As Enforced Disappearances remain unchecked, the Secretary General calls on states in his observance message to ratify International Convention as crucial first step to ending crime.

"International groups are joining hands to continue to bring awareness and educate people about enforced disappearances which is a crime against humanity. Sindhi Foundation is gravely concerned about recent escalation in enforced disappearances of Sindhi people in Pakistan ” Laghari says in advance of the event.

IRAN: Panel Makes Case To Reimpose UN Sanctions, Says Iranian People’s Struggle for Change is Key to Lasting Peace

On Wednesday, Aug 26, 2020, the US Representative Office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI-US) hosted a webinar, entitled “IRAN: Reimposing UN Sanctions,” with national security experts, and to release “IRAN: The Imperative to Reimpose UN Sanctions”

Alireza Jafarzadeh displays the NCRI-US’ new book, “IRAN: The Imperative to Reimpose UN Sanctions” during the August 26, 2020 webinar hosted by the NCRI-US.

Ambassador Joseph DeTrani, former Director of the National Counterproliferation Center and Special Adviser to the Director of National Intelligence, speaks at NCRI-US webinar “IRAN: Reimposing UN Sanctions” on August 26, 2020.

Michael Pregent, senior fellow at Hudson Institute and a leading Middle East analyst, speaks at NCRI-US webinar “IRAN: Reimposing UN Sanctions” on August 26, 2020.

Ambassador Marc Ginsberg, former Ambassador to Morocco and former White House Middle East advisor for President Carter speaks at NCRI-US webinar “IRAN: Reimposing UN Sanctions” on August 26, 2020.

NCRI-US’s new book: A cogent policy framework for the strategic necessity of reimposing sanctions

To end the Iranian regime’s threat, the world must recognize the right of the Iranian people to rise up against their ruthless rulers.”

— Alireza Jafarzadeh, NCRI-US Deputy Director

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Wednesday, August 26, 2020, the U.S. Representative Office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI-US) hosted a panel of leading national security experts to discuss the necessity of reinstituting UN sanctions on the Iran regime. Entitled “IRAN: Reimposing UN Sanctions,” the panel focused on various aspects of the impact on regional and global peace and security if the United Nations arms embargo on the Iranian regime, due to expire in mid-October, is not extended. A new book published by the NCRI-US, “IRAN: The Imperative to Reimpose UN Sanctions,” was released at this webinar.

The panelists discussed the strategic necessity of reimposing all UN sanctions on Tehran in light of the Iranian regime’s regional aggression, whether direct or through proxy militias, its terrorism, assassination of dissidents abroad, missile and nuclear programs and domestic crackdown on the Iranian people.

Ambassador Joseph DeTrani, former Director of the National Counterproliferation Center and Special Adviser to the Director of National Intelligence; Ambassador Marc Ginsberg, former Ambassador to Morocco and former White House Middle East advisor for President Carter; and Michael Pregent, senior fellow, Hudson Institute, were the panelists. NCRI-US Deputy Director and author of The Iran Threat, Alireza Jafarzadeh, moderated the online event, viewed by several hundred observers from across the United States on ZOOM, as well as via livestream on the NCRI-US twitter account.

In his opening remarks, Mr. Jafarzadeh introduced the NCRI-US’s new publication, “IRAN: The Imperative to Reimpose UN Sanctions,” saying that the 110-page book “contains details of the outlaw behavior of the Iranian regime, … demonstrating basically that the issue of reimposing all of the UN Security Council resolutions is actually a must. It's a necessity based on the facts on the ground.”

He added that allowing unrestricted sales and purchases of “arms to a regime with this kind of a nature, is actually feeding terrorism and actually feeding the mayhem that's been created in the region… Over the past two years, there has been an upsurge in terrorist operations in the West, including in Albania, Denmark, France, Germany, Turkey, and the United States. This is all in the past two years. At the time when the Iranian regime actually needed Europe the most, they stepped up their terror operations on European soil.”

Referring to last week’s announcement by Secretary of State Michael Pompeo that “13 officials involved in a brutal and intricately planned assassination carried out in Switzerland in 1990 as part of Iran’s ongoing worldwide terrorism campaign” have been blacklisted, Mr. Jafarzadeh said, “Although the case of the assassination of Professor Kazem Rajavi took place 30 years ago, it's very encouraging that eventually those assassins are being designated and their names have been published by the United States government.”

The panel’s first speaker, Ambassador DeTrani, reminded viewers that even after the JCPOA agreement, Tehran’s malign behavior expanded and continued: “Whether it's in Lebanon, whether it's in Yemen, whether it's in Iraq, whether it's in Syria. Hezbollah, Hamas proxies of the IRGC’s Quds Force were out there, perpetrating terrorist acts.

“With October 18 and the lifting of the arms embargo coming up, what will Iran do with the weapons they will then purchase and the weapons that they will then sell to their proxies?… There are six resolutions out there and [Iran’s regime] must understand that it cannot get away with bad behavior. And indeed, in the final analysis, it hurts the people of Iran… The people of Iran are the key issue here. Because indeed the regime that's supporting these proxies is not caring for the people of Iran. Because we see that through demonstrations, we see through other manifestations and that's where the focus needs to be. And hopefully the international community comes together and says enough! Enough with your exporting of terrorism, enough with the threats of nuclear weapons and nuclear proliferation!”

Explaining what “the regime did under the protections of the JCPOA,” Michael Pregent said, “In 2015, when there was sanctions relief, the Iranian people never saw the economic benefits of that deal. Instead, the regime created new militias in Iraq, began to provide lethal aid to the Houthis in Yemen, began to move Iraqi militias and Quds Force officers to Syria to prop up the Assad regime.”

The Middle East analyst added that “this regime, in its 40-year history, does not own Iran's history, does not own Iran's culture, does not own what Iranians think about their futures… But it's also important to call out our allies and our geo-political foes for supporting a regime that wants to continue to destabilize the region. The Iranian people are against this regime and for the first time in Iraq all ethnic sects, the Shias, the Sunnis and the Kurds, are against Iran’s interference. We were seeing what's happening in Lebanon. Soleimani built a land bridge under the protections of the Iran deal before the president walked out, and the protesters have occupied that land bridge from Tehran to Baghdad to Beirut and that's important. Snapback sanctions are a tool to test the resolve of our allies. If they don't go along, the United States still has a whole host of things they can do unilaterally. The United States has not even done maximum pressure yet. There's so much more we can do.”

The last speaker, Ambassador Marc Ginsberg, told the panel that the regime has “not only a 40-year record of terrorism; it also has a 40-year record of subjugating and repressing its own public. We tend to forget how many times tens of thousands of innocent Iranians have been murdered by this regime in order to maintain its power. How much money has gone into the coffers of its leadership, the kleptocracy of the theological revolutionary dictatorship that this regime represents. And how ill-advised we are at times thinking that the Iran nuclear deal is going to result in a change of attitude by the regime.”

The former US envoy to Morocco added that “the bet that [Iran would moderate its behavior because of sanctions relief] was rolled by President Obama was meant to see whether or not this could occur. That in fact the regime would change its attitude and would moderate and become a responsible player. Well look, it didn't happen. And it's important for my fellow Democrats to acknowledge that… There are case after case of terrorism committed against the Iran opposition leaders. Just two years ago, the Iranian regime dispatched agents to blow up the MEK and NCRI leadership in Paris. These agents who were arrested were on their way to in effect bomb the site outside Paris where many Americans had come… Denmark has expelled Iranian diplomats who were planning and plotting terrorism, and the same holds true for Albania, where Iranian agents have tried to blow up and to commit terrorism.”

In closing, Mr. Ginsberg stressed, “We need a new alliance between the United States and Europe to achieve what the Iranian people need, not what the regime needs in order to sustain itself. We need a covert campaign of diplomatic, humanitarian and economic support to empower opposition leaders like [NCRI President-elect] Madam Rajavi and the NCRI. And if anyone was able to see this huge number of people who traveled from all over the world [in 2018] to the Paris convocation, then you would understand the support that this opposition has, both in and out of Iran.”

Alireza Jafarzadeh closed the session by saying that “the 2015 termination of the provisions of the six UN Security Council resolutions has not prevented the regime from striving to obtain the bomb, nor has it tamed its malign behavior externally or inside Iran. To the contrary, Tehran escalated its nuclear violations, heightened its regional aggression, stepped up terrorism in Europe and the United States, and cracked down on its population in Iran. The experience over the past four decades has shown that the clerics ruling Iran only understand the language of firmness and decisiveness. Therefore, building more pressure on the regime is indispensable to confronting its terrorism and aggression, as well as its attempts to obtain nuclear weapons.”

The NCRI-US Deputy Director added that Maryam Rajavi has repeatedly said, “This regime must not be allowed to acquire even a single bullet. It must not pocket profits from a single barrel of Iranian oil. And it must not spend even a single dollar from revenues belonging to the people for its own survival… It is for this reason that we, on behalf of the people of Iran, reiterate our long-standing call for the reimposition of the six UN Security Council resolutions sanctioning the Iranian regime. Under no circumstances should this outlaw regime be allowed to purchase or sell weapons.”

Mr. Jafarzadeh went on to say that “To end the Iranian regime’s threat, the world must recognize the right of the Iranian people to rise up against their ruthless rulers. Instead of giving concessions, the regime’s leaders must be put on trial in international tribunals for the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, the murder of 1,500 protesters in November 2019, and the terror plots against and the assassination of Iranian dissidents abroad.”

Mr. Jarfarzadeh stressed that “When the State Department designated, just last week, the 13 assassins of Professor Kazem Rajavi for killing the most renowned human rights champion of Iran some 30 years ago in Geneva, in broad daylight, the message was clear: There is no statute of limitations for serving justice. That is why that designation should be coupled with designating the Supreme leader, Ali Khamenei; the current president, Hassan Rouhani; the former Minister of Foreign Affairs whose embassy was used for this murder, Ali Akbar Velayati; and the Intelligence Minister at the time, Ali Fallahian, who masterminded this cold-blooded murder. They must all be put on trial for crimes against humanity. By holding the regime’s leaders to account, the world can pave the way for the free Iran millions of Iranians are calling for. A free Iran contributes to world peace.”

Sheriff Bradshaw & Supervisor of Elections Wendy Sartory Link win big & School Board District 2 candidate Alexandria Ayala wins open seat in three-person race

This Primary Election was an important test for how campaigns, candidates and the election process would manage during the challenges presented by COVID-19.”

— Rick Asnani, CEO of Cornerstone Solutions

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cornerstone Solutions, a full-service public affairs and political consulting firm providing communications services, issue management and community relations, congratulates its clients for winning their 2020 Primary Election campaign. Cornerstone Solutions’ winning clients include Sheriff Ric Bradshaw, Supervisor of Elections Wendy Sartory Link; and Alexandria Ayala School Board Member-Elect District 2.

The August election in Palm Beach County saw an unprecedented level of voter participation with a 26.63% turnout or 263,873 registered Palm Beach County voters. This was a 4% jump from the August 2018 primary election. Most of the turnout was fueled by a large vote-by-mail participation with 182,365 voters choosing to vote-by-mail, 24,080 voting during Early Voting and 57,260 votings in person on Election Day. 168 provisional ballots were cast.

“This Primary Election was an important test for how campaigns, candidates and the election process would manage during the challenges presented by COVID-19. We saw all sorts of records broken in terms of voting, and candidates elected,” said Rick Asnani, CEO of Cornerstone Solutions. “Our team worked around the clock, put together winning campaign plans and executed when it mattered most. We were closely monitoring how vote-by-mail was changing when and how people voted, and made sure we were ahead of the curve to achieve victory. Congratulations are in store for the winning candidates and teams who made election night success possible.”

Sheriff Ric Bradshaw was running in the Democratic Primary Election. He received 61% of the vote and is now heading to the General Election on November 3rd. Sheriff Bradshaw set records for his fundraising prowess and broad range of support during the Primary Election, sweeping both the Palm Beach Post and SunSentinel endorsements. Florida law now requires Constitutional Officers to run as partisan candidates. After Tuesday’s victory, Sheriff Bradshaw’s campaign released the following statement:

“The Primary Election on Tuesday was an important milestone in my campaign. The voters overwhelmingly agreed that I have the experience, leadership, and vision to continue to serve as Sheriff of Palm Beach County. Thank you. I’m incredibly honored to have your continued trust and support. As Sheriff, I’m focused on continuing the policies and reforms that improve law enforcement: Increasing our existing mental health units, installing body cameras, COVID-19 safety, and reducing crime countywide,” stated Sheriff Ric Bradshaw.

First-time candidate, Supervisor of Elections Wendy Sartory Link was in an open primary election where Democrats, Republicans and Independents could vote. Supervisor Link won outright with 71% of the vote and received the highest number of votes than any other candidate on the ballot in Palm Beach County. Supervisor Link was in the position of having to both run to keep her seat and ensure a safe election with an unprecedented amount of vote-by-mail and concerns over COVID-19. Voters sent a clear message that Supervisor Link has done an excellent job in reforming and improving the Elections office. The results on Election Day, both in her election and the smooth election process that occurred, prove voters were right. After Tuesday’s victory, Wendy Sartory Link released the following statement:

“Thank you to the voters who put their trust and confidence in me. I am so grateful for the support I received from family, friends, and supporters. A special thanks to our amazing Elections Office staff who worked day in and day out to ensure a safe and successful Primary in which every vote was counted. Now, it’s time to get to work so we are ready for November! I am excited to continue improving our elections here in Palm Beach County, ensuring every vote counts and making our Elections Office one of the best,” stated Wendy Sartory Link, Supervisor of Elections.

Alexandria Ayala shocked the Palm Beach County community with her 56% victory in the School Board District 2 race against two other opponents. The District 2 seat was an open seat as the current Board member was retiring. Ayala, a 27-year legislative aide and community advocate, outworked her opponents, picked up 43 endorsements, including the powerful Classroom Teachers Association and coveted Palm Beach Post. Many expected the race to go to a runoff in November, but the voters sent a strong message that Ayala’s education experience and detailed plans were the solutions they were looking for on the School Board. Alexandria Ayala is the first Hispanic woman to be elected to the Palm Beach County School Board. After Tuesday’s victory, Alexandria Ayala released the following statement:

“I’m incredibly humbled by all of the support and encouragement I received throughout this campaign and the overwhelming confidence our community has in my ability to serve as our next District 2 School Board Member. From an early age, I was taught the value of service and education and was inspired to make a difference in my community. We are facing uncertain times, and our students, teachers and families need an advocate on the School Board that will look out for them and lead us forward with true collaboration and determination. As your newest School Board member, I plan to get to work immediately to tackle some of our District’s most pressing needs,” stated Alexandria Ayala.

UNSC Rejection of US Resolution to Extend Arms Embargo on Iran a Grave Security Concern

WASHINGTON DC , DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — PRESS RELEASE | Iran Policy Committee | Washington, DC | August 25, 2020

WASHINGTON, Aug 22, 2020 — On August 14, the United Nation Security Council (UNSC) rejected an effort by the United States to extend a conventional-arms embargo imposed on the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The international agreement to ban Iran from purchasing or selling arms was intended to target sales of certain weapons by and to Iran (including aircrafts and tanks) and was originally imposed on an indefinite basis beginning in 2007. Time limits were only imposed as part of the 2015 nuclear accord known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Should world leaders fail to act on Iran’s noncompliance with its existing security commitments, the accord, affirmed under UNSC Resolution 2231, is set to expire on October 18.

Last week, the United States formally requested that the United Nations restore all UN imposed sanctions on Iran and called for a “snapback” of international sanctions. “As a result, the United States is left with no choice but to notify the council that Iran is in significant non-performance of its JCPOA commitments,” US Ambassador to the UN Kelly Craft wrote.

A letter from the United Kingdom, France, and Germany (collectively known as the E3) argued that the United States could not trigger “snapback” but acknowledged Iran’s general noncompliance under UNSC 2231. The letter states: “The E3 are determined to bring adequate answers to these challenges and will continue to work with all UNSC members and stakeholders to seek a path forward that preserves space for further diplomacy.”

In the interest of peace and security, the Iran Policy Committee (IPC) calls on the leaders of the international community to support US requests to trigger the “snapback” mechanism despite the US withdrawal from the earlier 2015 agreement.

IPC has long documented the Islamic Republic’s malign activities and nefarious influence. By threatening the world and its own citizens, exporting fundamentalism, enabling proxy violence, disregarding human rights, suppressing civil liberties, embracing corruption, and strangling the marketplace, Tehran’s leaders pose a grave and continued threat to regional peace and security.

IPC president and Iran policy scholar, Professor Ivan Sascha Sheehan, observes that: “Lifting the arms embargo on Iran under the current circumstances is as unwise as it is unnecessary. Restoring all of the prior UN sanctions is critical to curtailing the regime’s illicit operations and defiant pursuit of weapons. Allowing JCPOA sunset provisions to begin taking effect will only undermine the maximum pressure campaign that has given hope to the democratic aspirations of the Iranian people. It is a certain path to regional instability.”

Iran’s officials have already vowed to promptly restock their arsenal after sanctions are removed. Iran’s Minister of Defense, Brigadier General Amir Hatami, said last Sunday that Iran “will use all capacities in the world to meet its arms requirements, selling and exporting weapons after sanctions removal.” In addition, Abbas Mousavi, Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson, recently noted that the country intends to export weapons immediately after the blockage lapses.

IPC expresses its strong for the democratic aspirations of the Iranian people and their organized opposition and acknowledges the Iranian people’s desire to topple the religious dictatorship that rules over them. With record numbers of Iranians participating in three nationwide uprisings against the clerical regime in just the past two and a half years, there has arguably never been a more a critical time to be united in confronting Tehran.

In this defining moment, the community of nations – and particularly the E3 – must speak with one voice against Iran’s ruling theocracy by triggering the “snapback” mechanism. Doing so will exert pressure on Iran’s repressive institutions and uphold regional peace and security interests.

The Iran Policy Committee, established in 2005, is a nonpartisan Washington, DC-based research institute focused on U.S. policy toward Iran. For more than fifteen years, IPC has produced actionable research and timely analyses for U.S. officials in the legislative and executive branches, convened briefings on urgent policy matters, and prompted a closer examination of the prospect of regime change by the Iranian people.
