Military Action Against Protestors

6 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

The vast majority of protests following the death of George Floyd have been peaceful. Several cities in Louisiana had nonviolent demonstrations calling for an end to systemic racism in our country. The president has threatened military force against protestors and has encouraged governors to 'dominate' the streets of their states. The American people have a legitimate grievance regarding the treatment of Black Americans. The voices of Black Americans and protestors must be heard with empathy, and the issues of systemic racism and police brutality must be meaningfully addressed. State-sanctioned violence against the American people will only undermine trust and thrust our country into further unrest. Empathy is not weakness. It is a meaningful step towards justice and peace. I urge you to discourage military action against protestors and work towards facilitating meaningful dialogue between our country's leaders and those exercising their first amendment right to protest injustice.
