Medea Benjamin: Enough

As the U.N. Human Rights Council launches an investigation in drone strikes, President Obama keeps ordering more attacks. We deserve better. medea_benjamin_arrested_3.jpg

We deserve real leadership on international affairs, and that’s why I’m supporting Jill Stein for president. We must cut our military budget by 50% -- not increase secret programs using faulty technology and bad intelligence to kill innocent people.

Will you join me in supporting Jill Stein by pitching in today?

Ben Emerson, U.N. special rapporteur on counterterrorism and human rights is with us-

“The Obama administration continues to formally adopt the position that it will neither confirm nor deny the existence of the drone program. . . . In reality, the administration is holding its finger in the dam of public accountability.”

Three weeks ago, I joined thirty other Americans to visit Pakistan and protest U.S. drones which have killed an estimated 2,500 to 3,200 people. We were overwhelmed with support for our message internationally and given further proof that we are not alone. But we have to keep organizing to have our voice heard.

Can you chip in today?

There are only 4 days left to the campaign, and we’ve come too far to back down now. We are on the verge of making history by winning the most votes on record for a Green presidential candidate. With your support, together, we will build a new democracy.
