March 19th's solgan

It has been suggested by friends that we change the slogan "No war on Iran" (suggested for weblog title changes on March 19th) to a slogan that would reflect our standpoint against foreign interference as well as our aspiration for democracy. A slogan reflecting our peaceful culture and attesting of our self-reliance.

Please send me your suggestions.

I'll keep you posted on the new slogan in the next few days.

دوستان پیشنهاد کرده اند که شعاری برای روز 29 اسفند مطرح شود که در عین بیان مخالفتمان با جنگ و مداخله ی خارجی، فرهنگ ضد خشونت (در نتیجه ضد سلاح هسته ای) و تمایل قوی ایرانیان برای استقرار دموکراسی در کشور را نیز در بر بگیرد

لطفاً نظر دهید

Hands Off IranThis was used for Cuba during the Bay of Pigs invasion when the line between actual war and support for a civil war was blurring.

I reckon the US will be comitting a grave mistake if they thought they could wage a war on Iran.

i think another slogan that incorporates all the other elements you named would end up being too long-winded. i think something like "no war on iran" is simple and to the point. individual bloggers who participate can then choose to dedicate their post of that day to expanding on the issue to make the points suggested to you. that's my idea anyway.

I think "no war on Iran" is good enough! A slogan should be short and to the point. It's difficult to think of a slogan that would encompass all of the attributes mentioned in your post...I think some poeple are just scared that if they oppose the war against Iran, then they will be accused of supporting the islamic regime in Iran. I think these are separate issues. The above slogan is actually very clear...whatever our position towards the current regime in Iran, we still do not want a foreign interference in our internal affairs.

I've got problems opening the site too. It takes ages for the page to load and it stops me doing anything else with the browser. Same thing happens when I open the comments.
best wishes for fixing it

I'm of European extraction, so I don't think I'd be much of a front person for your campaign for March 19. Best of luck with it, though. There is much prejudice in this country toward Middle Eastern/North African people, and I think (or at least I hope) most of it is based on ignorance rather than malice.

For example, it would be good if your people could participate in the ethnic festivals sponsored in many towns and cities across this country. "The way to a man's [or woman's] heart is through his [her] stomach!"

Please remember that not everyone in this country is computer literate; you should put out conventional press releases as well as blog entries. I was very moved by the poetry you published in an earlier entry. I hope you can include something like that in your press releases.

Yes to Iranian Self-Determination
No to American Aggression

Too long as a slogan maybe. Work with it to mold it into something shorter?

I think much better than "no war in Iran" which is too cliche, too easy to overlook, to uneducational for the American sleepwalker.
