In light of Jeremy Scahill's shocking documentary film Dirty Wars: The World is a Battlefield
that exposes the hidden truths behind America's expanding covert wars,
CODEPINK has launched the campaign "Clean Up the Dirty Wars". The
covert drone strikes and night raids approved by President Obama's
administration--masked by the language of precision--are anything but
clean. Sign this petition to urge President Obama to do the following before the CODEPINK trip to Yemen on June 9th, 2013:
the occupation of Afghanistan: It's time to bring ALL the US troops
and private security contractors home, and allow the Afghan people to
decide their own future.
the lethal drone strikes. The drone strikes have killed countless
civilians, are a recruiting tool for extremists and spread anti-American
responsibility for innocent victims: Set up a process where the
families of innocent victims can seek redress from the US government,
Guantanamo: Start by immediately releasing the 86 prisoners who have
been cleared for release, then formally charge and try the remaining
prisoners in fair and open proceedings and shut down the prison.
Join CODEPINK to demand accountability from our president. It's time to Clean Up These Dirty Wars!
