• I deserve to live in a world free of nuclear weapons!
    Right now the US is at least participating in and in some cases promoting and aggravating conflict that involve three nuclear powers, Russia, China, and Israel. Any one of these could get out of hand, escalate and result in a nuclear exchange.  We want Mayor Freddie O'Connell to join the hundreds of other mayors in the US and across the world and say no to nuclear war and yes to peace.

  • Impeach Joe Biden for War Crimes
    It is critical that President Biden be held to account for war crimes against the Palestinian people and that United States citizens understand that he is breaking international and U.S. laws by providing military, monetary and diplomatic support for the Israeli government's extermination campaign against the Palestinian people.

  • Congress: Investigate Biden administration's criminal violations for sending arms to Israel
    Our laws and regulations against war crimes mean nothing if they're not enforced and only Congress can legally enforce them. While we continue taking to the streets, we can also demand Congress do its job!

  • STOP ENABLING GENOCIDE IN GAZA & ATTACKING YEMEN, IRAQ & SYRIA!
    The US is not only aiding and abetting Israel's genocide in Gaza, it is violating international law and the US constitution by attacking Yemen, Iraq and Syria without explicit congressional approval.

  • Tell Biden: Your Middle East Policy is Likely to Elect Trump
    We have created a broad movement calling for a ceasefire and negotiations in Gaza. Polling tells us we are the majority. Now our movement needs to access the levers of power to make the ceasefire and negotiations happen. The person who can give us what we demand is Mr. Netanyahu, but our most direct leverage with him is through President Biden. Therefore, please sign and pass around this petition framing our demand in terms a politician can understand, even if he is not moved by humanitarian arguments.

  • CAMPAIGN FOR A GLOBAL BAN ON WEAPONIZED DRONES
    The use of weaponized aerial drones over the past 21 years has led to killing, maiming, terrorization and/or displacement of millions of people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Ethiopia, Sudan, South Sudan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Western Sahara, Kurdish regions, Ukraine, Russia, and other countries. Numerous detailed studies and reports regarding casualties resulting from the deployment of weaponized aerial drones indicate that the majority of people killed, maimed, and displaced, or otherwise harmed, have been non-combatants, including women and children. Entire communities and wider populations are terrorized, intimidated and psychologically damaged by the constant flight of weaponized aerial drones over their heads, even when they are not struck by the weapons. The United States, China, Turkey, Pakistan, India, Iran, Israel, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Kazakhstan, Russia and Ukraine are manufacturing and/or developing weaponized aerial drones, and a growing number of countries are producing smaller, inexpensive single-use loitering munitions, known as “suicide” or “kamikaze” drones. Some of these countries, including the United States, Israel, China, Turkey and Iran are exporting weaponized aerial drones to an ever-increasing number of countries, while manufacturers in additional countries are exporting parts for weaponized aerial drone production. The use of weaponized aerial drones has included numerous violations of international human rights and international humanitarian law by states and non-state armed groups around the world, including violations of international boundaries, national sovereignty rights and UN agreements. The materials necessary to build and arm rudimentary weaponized aerial drones are neither technologically advanced nor expensive so that their use is proliferating at an alarming rate among militias, mercenaries, insurgencies and individuals. A growing number of non-state actors have conducted armed attacks and assassinations using weaponized aerial drones, including but not limited to: Constellis Group (formerly Blackwater), Wagner Group, Al-Shabab, the Taliban, the Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, Libyan rebels, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Houthis, Boko Haram, Mexican drug cartels, as well as militias and mercenaries in Venezuela, Colombia, Sudan, Mali, Myanmar, and other countries in the Global South. Weaponized aerial drones are often used to prosecute undeclared and illegal wars. Weaponized aerial drones lower the threshold to armed conflict and can expand and prolong wars, because they enable attack without physical risk to ground and air force personnel of the weaponized drone user. Apart from the Russian-Ukrainian war, most weaponized aerial drone strikes so far have targeted non-Christian people of color in the Global South. Both technologically advanced and rudimentary aerial drones can be weaponized with missiles or bombs carrying chemical weapons or depleted uranium. Advanced and rudimentary weaponized aerial drones pose an existential threat to humanity and the planet because they could be used to target nuclear power plants, of which there are hundreds in 32 countries, primarily in the Global North. Due to the reasons stated above, weaponized aerial drones constitute a tool for violating the integrity of national and international law, thus creating an expanding circle of enmity and increasing the likelihood of internecine conflict, proxy wars, larger wars and escalation to nuclear threats. The use of weaponized aerial drones violates basic human rights as guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1976), particularly with respect to the rights to life, privacy and fair trial; and the Geneva Conventions and their Protocols (1949, 1977), particularly with respect to its protection of civilians against indiscriminate, unacceptable levels of harm.

  • CANCEL AUSTRALIAN TALISMAN SABRE war games with 30,000 military personnel & also CANCEL AUKUS
    Talisman Sabre and AUKUS threaten to provoke war with China and destroy the environment, as well as furthering colonialism and systems of oppression. Call for Peace: Please share this petition in your networks and raise your voice against the dangerous militarization of the Pacific. To challenge Talisman Sabre and AUKUS, many Pacific region organizations including Pacific Peace Network and Independent and Peaceful Australia Network will host a "Call for Peace in the Pacific" conference on July 29 in Brisbane with speakers from across the Pacific, followed by educational events in Sydney, Canberra and Darwin. The conference will be preceded by two webinars in July with speakers on the militarization of the Pacific and Talisman Sabre and AUKUS for those unable to come to Australia for the conference. The aim of these events is to raise awareness within Australia and the Pacific region of the full impacts of allowing the US to base their military personnel, weapons, hardware and software on Pacific Sovereign Lands, by sharing the experiences of Pacific People including: 1. Complicity in wars of aggression 2. Becoming a target in the event of war 3. Loss of sovereignty 4. First People’s Lands disregarded damaged and disrespected 5. Environmental damage 6. Economic drain 7. Sidelining of national legal system 8. Impacts on women and girls The mock battlefield will be from Western Australia, across the Northern Territory and Queensland, to Jervis Bay and Norfolk Island in New South Wales. Publicly released information includes airborne troop drops near Charters Towers and amphibious lands at locations along the north and central Queensland coast, plus maritime mine-hunting near Gladstone. The RAAF Base Scherger at Cape York will play a key role. In addition, long-range fire exercises will take place in Jervis Bay with Japan’s Self-Defense Forces and air, ground and maritime exercises are set for Norfolk Island. The Darwin area will cover logistics duties while larger warships will practice naval gunnery and submarine hunting exercises offshore.

  • Signing our letter to block the sale of weapons to Taiwan
    Sign our letter to Congress demanding that they use their Congressional authority to block the sale of $619 million dollars worth of weapons to Taiwan. Not only is this sale in direct violation of China’s sovereignty and previous agreements between the U.S. and China, it also will exacerbate climate change through military pollution and increase the risk of kinetic and nuclear war between the nations. Read our action alert here. We know U.S. imperialism impacts people outside of the U.S. the most, so we invite all people to send a message to Congress that the U.S. must stop investing in and profiting from weapons deals!

  • Pelosi Needs to Step Down as Speaker of the House
    Speaker Pelosi’s recklessly provocative actions show that new leadership in the House is needed to avoid a world-ending conflict with China. Her lack of leadership has been demonstrated repeatedly throughout her tenure, and it’s time to end the warmongering plaguing our daily lives and abroad.
