* 2) We Stand for Peace and Justice

"This is a new project seeking international signatures for a broad political statement, and hoping to propel use of the statement in organizing work. Overnight over 10,000 people have signed on. That's good, but only a beginning. And, the good news is, the pace of sign-ups is only increasing, including many translations being done, spontaneously, and other efforts by other organizations taking up the statement to advance the effort."

"I stand for peace and justice.

I stand for democracy and autonomy. I don't think the U.S. or any other country should ignore the popular will and violate and weaken international law, seeking to bully and bribe votes in the Security Council.

I stand for internationalism. I oppose any nation spreading an ever expanding network of military bases around the world and producing an arsenal unparalleled in the world ...
