      SIGN THE PETITION TO PRESIDENT BUSH

      The documented torture of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib underscores the need for President Bush to rededicate the United States to the Geneva Conventions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that came about following World War II.

      Join us in urging the Bush administration to respect and honor the legacy of U.S. leadership, sacrifice, and American values that became international law.

       14152 people have already signed the petition.

      Notable supporters of the petition include:
      Captain Kris Kristofferson, USA, Grammy Award-winning Singer/Songwriter
      Vice Admiral Ralph Weymouth, USN, Retired, World War II veteran
      Lieutenant General Robert G. Gard, Jr., USA, Retired, Korea and Vietnam veteran
      Raymond C. Offenheiser, President, Oxfam America
      Rev. Robert Edgar, National Council of Churches, six-term Member of Congress
      Rev. Jim Winkler, United Methodist General Board of Church and Society

      Susan Shaer, Executive Director, Women's Action for New Directions (WAND)
      and 14152 veterans and other concerned citizens.

      We, the undersigned citizens of the United States, affirm the international cooperation, universal humanitarian principles, and human rights law that arose from the ashes of World War II, thanks to the unprecedented national sacrifice and service of a generation of Americans.

      We call upon President George W. Bush to honor that legacy by rededicating our nation to the Geneva Conventions, the Charter of the United Nations, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a framework of law that protects the lives and dignity of civilians, prisoners of war, and wounded combatants – including the Iraqi people and our men and women serving today in Iraq.”
