That indictable members of previous and current U.S. administrations and Congresses are tried for war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
That the Obama regime end the assault on our Bill of Rights by ending the practices and policies of warrantless spying, indefinite detention, and targeted assassination
That all use of fossil fuels be replaced with clean energy sources through a process of conversion that draws on funding and resources currently devoted to wars and war preparation.
That government and corporate whistleblowers be protected and not persecuted.
That governance by Wall Street and war profiteers be ended, and that public servants begin serving the interests of the people.
