Ann Arbor, Michigan: US sanctions are killing Iranians during a global pandemic. Listen to the outcry demanding an immediate stop to all sanctions on Iran to protect lives. See the articles on the subject which have been released in recent days; some are referenced below.
In Ann Arbor, we can easily do our part to save 80 million Iranians from sanctions-induced death during this pandemic. Ann Arbor City Council must pass this simple humanitarian resolution: “We demand that all sanctions against Iran be removed immediately, to save millions of Iranian lives.”
That 16-word resolution won’t cost you a thing, and it will save many lives.
See these recent articles:

Coronavirus: Ilhan Omar calls for lifting of sanctions on Iran amid outbreak: With more than 11,000 reported cases, the Islamic Republic is one of the worst affected by Covid-19 outside of China
“U.S. Sanctions on Iran Are Increasing Coronavirus Deaths. They Need to Be Stopped Now. The measures—imposed by Trump with bipartisan complicity—curtail desperately needed medical supplies.”
“The Coronavirus Is Killing Iranians. So Are Trump’s Brutal Sanctions.”
“”Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the Trump administration has slapped new sanctions on Iran”https://mondoweiss.net/2020/03/amidst-the-covid-19-crisis-the-trump-administration-has-slapped-new-sanctions-on-iran/
— That last article quotes Senator Bernie Sanders saying “Iran is facing a catastrophic toll from the coronavirus pandemic. U.S. sanctions should not be contributing to this humanitarian disaster. As a caring nation, we must lift any sanctions hurting Iran’s ability to address this crisis, including financial sanctions.”
As the only candidate on the ballot for a 4th Ward seat on the Ann Arbor City Council, I am telling the City Council to approve this resolution as quickly as possible:
“We demand that all sanctions against Iran be removed immediately, to save millions of Iranian lives.”
In case you have forgotten that Iranians are human beings, take a look at the attached photos from Iran.
