Demand a stop to endless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, war by drone in Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, the use of Special Forces, with night raids and other covert operations, arrests without charges in Afghanistan, and with more (Iran) clearly in their sights. Beyond that repression at home: endless spying on citizens, suppression of the Occupy movement, militarization of the police, prosecution of whistleblowers like Bradley Manning and Julian Assange, wrongful surveillance of Muslim communities, more people imprisoned than any other country in the world, and, unfortunately, the list goes on and on.
