Major Companies Stop Business with Iran

According to a U.S. law (1995), American companies cannot trade with Iran, yet a provision in this law allows foreign subsidiaries of American companies to do so. Under this provision, large U.S.-based companies, such as GE, Halliburton, Tyson Foods, and ConocoPhillips-Lukoil, have maintained business ties with the Iranian regime.

UANI works tirelessly to compel such companies to cut ties with Iran. Recently, GE and Halliburton, as well as the company Transammonia, yielded to UANI’s efforts, showing that grassroots public pressure is indeed effective. Keep up the great work UANI!
