An Open Letter to the People of Egypt

From the United States, we watched as you stood up for democracy, faced huge obstacles and used nonviolent action to depose a dictator. We send you our congratulations and appreciation for showing us -- and people all over the planet -- the power of mobilized humanity in the quest for justice and freedom.



As Americans, we have a responsibility to reset U.S. government policies in Egypt and the entire region. Last week, thousands of us
signed a letter demanding that Obama apologize for our country's three decades of support for the Mubarak regime. Now, in the absence of a presidential apology, we take it upon ourselves to apologize. We resolve to work for human rights in solidarity with you, calling for a swift transition for democracy in Egypt. We intend to work so that U.S. foreign policy truly becomes aligned with the values of democracy and human rights.



Sincerely,



Please join us in signing your name to this alert.

RootsAction is dedicated to galvanizing people who are committed to economic fairness, equal rights for all, civil liberties, environmental protection -- and defunding endless wars. We mobilize on these issues no matter whether Democrats or Republicans control Washington D.C.
