Tell Amnesty Int'l: Have a Single Standard on War


Amnesty International poster supporting NATO's war:

Some human rights groups, especially Amnesty International, seem to have forgotten to oppose all violations of human rights -- by all sides -- in war.1

Please sign this petition to Amnesty:

We write as people who have generally been supportive of the work of Amnesty International and other human rights groups. But we are concerned that you seem to have forgotten to oppose all violations of human rights -- by all sides -- in war.

You are highlighting war-making in Syria's civil war by one side only. This one-sided treatment by a group avowedly dedicated to all human rights is fueling the fires of a wider war from which the people of Syria can only suffer. We urge you to assertively expose and condemn all wartime violations of human rights -- without downplaying or ignoring the violations committed by the U.S. government and its allies.
