Stop the crackdown in Guinea: sign here
See this petition from Avaaz against the crackdown in Guinea. The petition is to leaders of the African and European Unions. Avaaz is pressing for travel sanctions against the ruling elite of the west African country of Guinea; they love to fly and shop! The military in Conakry, capital of Guinea, gunned down civilians who were protesting peacefully for democracy. More than 150 were killed and women were stripped and raped.
