A World Message

I do not normally blog about politics. I find the topic wearing and it brings out the worst in people. This has, however, been one of the ugliest campaigns I can remember, and I think it is important to urge everyone to get out there and vote. Do not say “my vote will not matter” stay home, and blog about how horrible the leaders are. Someone shared this with me earlier today and I am passing it on to you. That is all you will hear from me on this topic.

In just over a week, America will head to the polls. So much depends on this election — the fight against climate change, the war in Iraq, global efforts on human rights and many other issues.

But right now, US conservatives are employing the most divisive and deceptive tactics in the US election, portraying those who call for change as “anti-American” and even terrorist sympathizers. Check out this new response ad from the global online organisation Avaaz.org, calling for hope, unity, and change as Americans head to the polls.

If enough people watch the ad and sign its message to the American people and presidential candidates, it will be picked up by the US talk shows — who are looking for what is hot online. You can watch the ad and sign on here:

Thanks!
