Respect for the United States as a global leader has been
devastated by the Bush Presidency. We, hundreds of
thousands of citizens from every nation in the world, are filled
with hope that the next Presidency will bring change: a
recognition that we must tackle the world’s enormous
challenges together, and a commitment to serve the common
good of the global community.
To restore the US to responsible global citizenship and
leadership, we urge you to:
Stop Global Warming – Commit to a strong global agreement
on climate change, and urgently join other developed countries
in reducing greenhouse gas emissions over the next decade.
Respect Human Rights – Rededicate the United States to
universal human rights, close all Guantanamo-style prisons
and end the CIA’s practices of torture and secret renditions.
Promote Peace – Reject the Bush doctrine of pre-emptive
warfare, and engage diplomatically to resolve and prevent
conflicts between the US and other nations.
Good leaders listen before leading. Good world leaders listen
to the world. We urge you to join hands with the community of
nations in a global partnership to tackle the desperate issues
After all, weʼre in this together.
