Over 50,000 of us have already signed the petition to ban weaponized drones, and more organizations are joining us all the time (see the growing list).
But President Obama has only increased the drone killings since his reelection.
We'll be delivering the petition soon. Please sign if you haven't, and ask everyone you know to do the same.
The president continues to keep the number of people killed and any legal justification for killing them secret. He has nominated the architect of his kill list as CIA director, a droneophile as secretary of defense, and an opponent of international law as secretary of state.
We need to turn the drone presidency around. Click here to support banning weaponized drones from the world.
Please forward this to anyone who might agree!
