Center for Constitutional Rights Calls on President Obama to Stick to His Promises, Support Goldstone Report

from the Center for Constitutional Rights: Help put the pressure on our government to stand by its promises. Write or call the White House at (202) 456-1111 and ask President Obama to stand for human rights and accountability. Insist that he support a strong resolution in the Human Rights Council endorsing and implementing Justice Richard Goldstone's Report recommendations and supporting international justice mechanisms if domestic investigations are inadequate. The Report to the U.N. Human Rights Council documents war crimes including deliberate and indiscriminate attacks against civilians committed in the context of military operations in Gaza in December 2008-January 2009. You can also write Ambassador Susan Rice of the U.S. Mission to the U.N. or call (212) 415-4062. For more information, click here.
