Phone Call for Human Rights
Telephone Jason Wiens, who handles foreign affairs for your Congressperson Jerry Moran at (202) 225-2715. 
Easy instructions here.
We need your help for a few minutes.
Over the weekend, Burma’s military regime began bombing (with shells/mortar rounds) villages of Karen people in eastern Burma. Thousands of refugees are streaming out of the area, over the Moei river and into Thailand.
We received some photos of people fleeing, yesterday, and released them to the media. Indiscriminately targeting peoples’ homes and lives is a crime against humanity and war crime, illegal under international law.
Over recent years, Burma’s regime has decimated over 3,300 villages and forced at least 1.5 million people to flee their homes. Regime troops destroy food supplies, hospitals/clinics, schools, and even cooking pots.
Yet, the UN Security Council has not acted to stop these attacks, even though they investigated and took action in similar situations in Yugoslavia (former), Rwanda, and Darfur.
Right now, two leading members of Congress are organizing a letter to President Obama that urges him to take action to stop these attacks once and for all, and bring the perpetrators — the Burmese regime — to justice.
Can you help us by calling Jason Wiens at (202) 225-2715, who handles foreign affairs for your Congressperson Jerry Moran, to ask if Rep. Moran will add their name to the letter? All the instructions you need are right here.
Already, 35 members of Congress have signed this letter, but we need many more to make an impact.
If you have already called, please call again and follow-up until your Congressperson signs on. We know the Burmese regime pays a great deal of attention to the UN Security Council, because senior diplomats, who have met with regime leaders, have told us first-hand.
After you make your calls, please write to us, right away (at mikejen@uscampaignforburma.org) to let us know how your call went.
Sincerely,
Mike Haack, Jeremy Woodrum

About reality

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
