Insist Paris tragedy not be exploited for more war

At this time of grief, our hearts go out to the people of France, as well as to the people of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and other countries traumatized by deadly violence -- people of all races, religions and nationalities.

This is a time of shock and fear, but also can be a time of reflection and action.

As a first step, you can add your name to this petition:

We want to express our condolences to all people who are suffering and mourning the results of organized deadly violence, from Paris and Beirut to Syria, Iraq and Lebanon. Humanity is indivisible. We reject any attempt by political leaders to exploit tragic events to promote more war.
