WORLD TO OBAMA: BAN LANDMINES
Every month hundreds of people are killed or maimed by landmines, but the U.S. has not joined 156 other nations and signed the 10 year old Mine Ban Treaty.
Last week, 68 U.S. Senators voiced their support for the ban, giving Obama the two-thirds majority needed in the Senate to ratify.
This is our best chance to get the U.S. to sign up, but military advisers could block it by claiming security concerns.
If enough of us support the Senate initiative now it will give the Obama administration the public pressure and backing it needs to ratify. Sign the petition below and forward it around:
To President Obama:
The world calls on you to sign the global Mine Ban Treaty without delay.
184,374 have signed the petition! Let's get to our delivery target of 200,000
