Sign the Petition: No More Attacks on Afghanistan

On the evening of Thursday, August 26, hours after a suicide bomb was detonated at the gate of Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport killing and wounding scores of Afghans trying to flee their country, U.S. President Joe Biden spoke to the world from the White House, “outraged as well as heartbroken.” Many of us listening to the president’s speech, made before the victims could be counted and the rubble cleared, did not find comfort or hope in his words. Instead, our heartbreak and outrage were only amplified as Joe Biden seized the tragedy to call for more war.

Sign the Petition to Stop the Basing of F-35s at Truax Air Base in Madison, WI

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED WISCONSIN RESIDENTS, publicly raise our voices to oppose basing an F-35A Joint Strike Fighter Force in Madison and we demand that Senator Tammy Baldwin stand with us and our community. Rather than make us more secure, the F-35 boondoggle threatens our security because it robs us of the resources we need to combat pandemics, the climate crisis, inadequate infrastructure and education, and support affordable housing and healthcare.
