Stop the Prosecution of Drone Whistleblower Daniel Hale

Stop the Prosecution of Drone Whistleblower Daniel Hale

Petition Text

Stop the selective and vindictive prosecution of Daniel Hale and bring an end to the abuse of the Espionage Act to silence whistleblowers and other truth tellers.

Why is this important?

Daniel is being punished because he dared speak the truth. He has been an outspoken peace and human rights activist, attempting to warn the public about the abuses and dangers of unchecked drone warfare. Hale is a whistleblower who has enriched the public’s knowledge about matters of grave civic concern. It is unconscionable to use a law supposedly aimed at actual spies and saboteurs, against individuals who act in good faith to bring government misconduct to the attention of the public.


Reasons for signing

  • Because its just the right thing to do for those parties are involved
  • The weapons may be "accurate", the judgement and intelligence behind the strikes are increasingly revealed to be anything but by the testimonies leaking through the information blackout of countless innocent deaths. Thank you.
  • No conscience makes the judge innocent? 'A terrorist is called that only because he does not have the power of the State behind him' - James Baldwin
