After listening all week to the shocking abuses committed in Iraq by Blackwater, the House came together and overwhelmingly passed a bill that would bring some accountability to all armed private contractors working overseas.  Now it's the Senate's turn to take action. But they must do it now by the same solid, veto-proof margin as the House, because the White House is opposed to accountability for these private contractors. 

     Tell your Senators to act quickly and support accountability for these hired guns. http://act.truemajorityaction.org/t/50/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=1194

Fwd:  ICE Campaign - "In Case of Emergency"
  We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than ourselves, knows which of these numbers belong to our closest family or friends.
  If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn't know who to call.  Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this "ICE" (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.  For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc.
  Please forward this. It won't take too many "forwards" before everybody will know about this. It really could save your life, or put a loved one's mind at rest.
  Let's spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today!

Petition to US Senate Against Cluster Bombs
7 years ago

Modern weapons in general create horrifying experiences for civilians caught in the line of fire. But some weapons continue to kill and maim innocent people for months or years after the conflict has ended. Cluster bombs, which release thousands of bomblets over a large area, are one such weapon. Due to high “dud” rates, many bomblets sit unexploded near homes, playgrounds, and farms until someone triggers their deadly blast.

Senator Diane Feinstein has introduced legislation to restrict the use and sale of cluster bombs. We plan to deliver this petition next week. Can you add your name and help spread the word?

Stop the Clash Dear friends,

From New York to Baghdad, Madrid to Beirut, talk is rising of a 'clash of civilizations' between the West and Islam -- no end in sight to the catastrophe in Iraq, war brewing between the US and Iran, Lebanon torn apart again, and still no real Israeli-Palestinian talks. But we know this clash is not about religion or culture. The real cause is politics - the politics of divide-and-rule, on all sides.

This is not the world we want. But it’s the world we’ll end up with, unless we act now. It's time for the peaceful majority – us – to make a stand. So watch our new 'Stop the Clash' video now for a fresh, empowering take on these conflicts, and a concrete first step we can all take today:

www.avaaz.org/en/stop_the_clash

According to the UN among others, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is the driving symbol of this "clash” between Islam and the West. But opinion polls show most people around the world agree that policy is the problem – big majorities everywhere want peace in the Middle East, as do most Israelis and Palestinians. If progress toward peace is made there, it will spread.

So let's take the first step, and call for REAL Middle East peace talks now. Click below to join the campaign:

www.avaaz.org/en/stop_the_clash

Tens of thousands of people have already signed the petition and supported an ad that ran on the front page of the Financial Times worldwide and in major Palestinian and Israeli newspapers.

Now we need to raise the pressure, ratcheting up to a major international day of action on June 5th – the 40th anniversary of the 1967 war that began the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. We want to hit every international summit and decision moment from now till then with the same demand. Can you help get us to 50,000 new voices for peace in the next 24 hours?

www.avaaz.org/en/stop_the_clash

We agree on what matters most. We all oppose war, tyranny, terror and the killing of innocent civilians. We know these conflicts are caused not by some inevitable culture clash, but by bad politics. The 'Stop the Clash' video is a good way to remind friends, family and colleagues of the big picture of all we share – and signing the Real Talks petition is a step every one of us can take. So click above to see Avaaz's new "Stop the Clash" video, spread the word, and act now...

With hope,

Paul, Galit, Fitri, Hannah, Ricken, Graziela, Jeremy, Lee-Sean and the wholeAvaaz.org

DECLARATION OF THE INDIGENOUS WORLD URANIUM SUMMIT
Window Rock, Navajo Nation, USA
December 2, 2006

We, the Peoples gathered at the Indigenous World
Uranium Summit, at this critical time of
intensifying nuclear threats to Mother Earth and
all life, demand a worldwide ban on uranium
mining, processing, enrichment, fuel use, and
weapons testing and deployment, and nuclear waste
dumping on Native Lands.

Past, present and future generations of
Indigenous Peoples have been disproportionately
affected by the international nuclear weapons and
power industry. The nuclear fuel chain poisons
our people, land, air and waters and threatens
our very existence and our future generations.
Nuclear power is not a solution to global
warming. Uranium mining, nuclear energy
development and international agreements (e.g.,
the recent U.S.-India nuclear cooperation treaty)
that foster the nuclear fuel chain violate our
basic human rights and fundamental natural laws
of Mother Earth, endangering our traditional
cultures and spiritual well-being.

We reaffirm the Declaration of the World Uranium
Hearing in Salzburg, Austria, in 1992, that
"uranium and other radioactive minerals must
remain in their natural location." Further, we
stand in solidarity with the Navajo Nation for
enacting the Diné Natural Resources Protection
Act of 2005, which bans uranium mining and
processing and is based on the Fundamental Laws
of the Dine. And we dedicate ourselves to a
nuclear-free future.

Indigenous Peoples are connected spiritually and
culturally to our Mother, the Earth. Accordingly,
we endorse and encourage development of renewable
energy sources that sustain - not destroy -
Indigenous lands and the Earth's ecosystems.

In tribute to our ancestors, we continue
centuries of resistance against colonialism. We
recognize the work, courage, dedication and
sacrifice of those individuals from Indigenous
Nations and from Australia, Brazil, Canada,
China, Germany, India, Japan, the United States,
and Vanuatu, who participated in the Summit. We
further recognize the invaluable work of those
who were honored at the Nuclear-Free Future
Awards ceremony on December 1, 2006. And we will
continue to support activists worldwide in their
nonviolent efforts to stop uranium development.

We are determined to share the knowledge we have
gained at this Summit with the world. In the
weeks and months ahead, we will summarize and
disseminate the testimonies, traditional
Indigenous knowledge, and medical and scientific
evidence that justify a worldwide ban on uranium
development. We will enunciate specific plans of
action at the tribal, local, national and
international levels to support Native resistance
to the nuclear fuel chain. And we will pursue
legal and political redress for all past, current
and future impacts of the nuclear fuel chain on
Indigenous Peoples and their resources.

New global petition - Ceasefire Campaign: Stop the War
8 years ago
New global petition

Ceasefire Campaign: Stop the War

Please
Sign the Petition

            http://www.ceasefirecampaign.org/


This week the American people voted overwhelmingly to reject President BushÕs war in Iraq, and yesterday the key architect of the war, US military chief Donald Rumsfeld, announced his resignation. The winds of political change are sweeping the US, and the US-led Coalition in Iraq may -- finally -- be realising that they cannot win the war, and that they lack the legitimacy to bring stability and peace to the country without more help from the international community.

To seize this opportunity, we want to place ads in US and UK papers with a new global petition calling upon the Coalition to accept a larger role for the international community and a phased withdrawal of all its troops from Iraq. WeÕll publish the number of signatures we get in the ads, so we need AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE to sign the petition in the next 48 hours. Please tell all your friends and family, and sign below:

Increased violence between rival rebel groups in Sudan has put millions of Darfur families are grave danger. And many international aid workers have been forced to leave the region, just when they're needed the most!

A UN peacekeeping force remains the only hope to bring peace to the region. This force has already authorized by the UN Security Council, but they might never reach Darfur if the Sudanese government doesn't agree to let them in. That's why it's so important that our leaders ramp up the pressure and demand that the peacekeepers are admitted.

Chile must adopt the Declaration of the United Nations on the rights of indigenous peoples

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/534460491

In every region of the world, the survival or well-being of Indigenous peoples is threatened by grave and persistent violations of their fundamental human rights.

I affirm my commitment to continue making progress in the advancement of the human rights of the world’s indigenous peoples at the local, national, regional and international levels, including through consultation and collaboration with them, and to present for adoption a final draft United Nations declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples as soon as possible.

A strong and uplifting United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is urgently needed to establish minimum international standards to inspire and urge states and others to respect and uphold the rights of Indigenous peoples without discrimination.

I call upon all states to support as a priority the draft UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (Chair’s Proposal, UN Document E/CN.4/2006/79, Annex I) and its adoption by the General Assembly before the end of 2006.
