We are a group of American citizens who support Egypt's pursuit of democracy, but we welcome signatures from around the world.
We the undersigned ask you to stand on the right side of history. Please pull all aid, including $1.3 billion in military aid, from the repressive Mubarak regime in Egypt and demonstrate to the pro-democracy protestors that America stands by her own democratic ideals wherever they may manifest.
Mubarak's days are numbered. The greater good will you show the people of Egypt now, the more likely they will be to work peacefully with the US in the future. Democracy in Egypt can only serve the interests of Middle Eastern peace in the long run.
We must stand by our founding tenets of equality and liberty by "putting our money where our mouth is" and standing strongly against Mubarak's violent attacks on peaceful protestors, including students, women, children and international journalists. We can no longer condone his 30-year regime of fear.
No doubt, you've seen the gruesome imagery of the Interior Ministry van plowing into a peaceful crowd. As the land of the free and the home of the brave, we can no longer afford to prop up dictators in the Middle East and northern Africa in the name of "stability."
This is a new day. A day in which information is transmitted at lightning-fast speeds and any hypocritical behavior on our part cannot remain under wraps. Let's not engage in the American foreign policy of the past few decades. Let's march with the Egyptians into the future, showing that we are, not just nationally, but internationally, the face of Hope, Change and Yes, We Can.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
