Block War Funding

Please sign this petition to the Congress of the United States:

We call on you to help our country turn away from what Martin Luther King Jr. called “the madness of militarism.” As a vital step, we urge you to enact legislation to block the use of any U.S. taxpayer funds for continuing warfare, directly or by proxy, in Syria. We further implore you to strive for better relations with Russia instead of fueling the current conflicts that could lead to nuclear annihilation of us all. While defunding endless and disastrous wars as well as cutting wasteful military expenditures, you can provide funds for urgent human and environmental needs.
