A Call to Action

Democracy for America, USAction, True Majority and Brave New Films have come together to produce a hard-hitting video outlining the case for why Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice must resign. They are collecting signatures on a petition at condimustgo.com and when they achieve 100,000 signatures (they had over 37,000 signatures at 7:30 am ET April 17, less than 24 hours after launching the campaign), they will deliver the petition to Senators Clinton, McCain and Obama. Here is the video:

In the video, we are reminded that at the "Principals Meetings" disclosed by ABC News last week, government officials at the highest levels orchestrated interrogation sessions including torture. At one of these meetings, Secretary Rice said to CIA officials, regarding the interrogation of a new detainee using these techniques, "This is your baby. Go do it."

Please take a moment to sign the petition by clicking the Democracy for America link above and then send the link on to your friends. For more information on torture as committed by the United States government, please visit Humanity against Crimes.

Each of us, after becoming aware of the crimes against humanity that are being committed by our government, in our name, has a responsibility to do everything we can to see that these atrocities stop immediately.
