Roots Action Campaign Petition – 2016-03-24 01:14:35
ACTION ALERT: Tell United States and All Non-Members to Join the ICC
Campaign Created by David Swanson / Roots Action
To: The governments of all non-member nations of the International Criminal Court
Join the International Criminal Court right away and without reservations.
Why is this important?
Global justice requires global participation. Partial and biased justice damages the cause of establishing the rule of law and the nonviolent settlement of disputes. To succeed, the ICC must include all nations and treat all crimes equally regardless of where committed or by whom.
