UN Says US Violating Human Rights

Saturday, June 6th, 2009

“The UN Human Rights Council has issued a report blasting the US for killing civilians, violating human rights and creating a “zone of impunity” for unaccountable private contractors to fight its wars. The UN group also criticized the US use of drones to attack Pakistan. The report, released this week was authored by Philip Alston, the U.N. special rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions.” Read the rest here.

The change of regime in the US is not making a difference to innocent children, women, and men in the areas where the US continues to wage illegal and immoral wars.

What, especially in the face of US violent repression of peaceful protest can we do to help our country return to the community of law abiding, peaceful nations?
