Dear Catherine,

We've become a nation that callously kills. Meticulous researchers have
documented that U.S. drones are killing many innocent civilians in
Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere. Drones are making the world less stable and
creating new enemies. *We must end the use of weaponized drones*.

*Add your name now.*<>

RootsAction and our allies will deliver this petition to:

- *the United Nations Secretary General*, urging him to investigate the
concerns of Navi Pillay, the U.N.'s top human rights official, that drone
attacks violate international law -- and to ultimately pursue sanctions
against nations using, possessing, or manufacturing weaponized drones;
- *the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court*, petitioning him
to investigate grounds for the criminal prosecution of those responsible
for drone attacks;
- *the U.S. Secretary of State, and the ambassadors to the United States
from the nations of the world*, asking them to ratify a treaty
forbidding the possession or use of weaponized drones.
- *President Barack Obama*, urging him to abandon the use of weaponized
drones, and to abandon his "kill list" program regardless of the technology
- *the Majority and Minority Leaders of the U.S. House and Senate*,
asking them to ban the use or sale of weaponized drones.

*Add your name now to build a movement that will rid the world of
weaponized drones.*<>

Please forward this email widely to like-minded friends.
