Protestors oppose Iran Legislation

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.—A protest is scheduled to take place asking NYS senators to end their support of legislation threatening to undermine nuclear negotiations with Iran on Wednesday.

The protest will begin at 1:30 p.m., protesters will then meet with the director of Senator Schumer's office, Steve Mann, and the director of Senator Gillibrand's office, David Connors, at 1:45 p.m. to discuss the importance of supporting the diplomatic path forward with Iran.

The protestors plan to deliver three things to the Senators:

-A petition with signatures from New York State residents statewide opposing the Senators legislation imposing more sanctions

-A letter to members of the US Senate signed by 60 national organizations opposing the sanctions legislation

-A statement by 120 rabbis, "Step by Step toward Shalom with Iran", opposing any actions that would undermine negotiations with Iran
