U.S. military whistleblowers will present this petition in Berlin to a German government that includes members already very much concerned about the giant U.S. Air Base at Ramstein.

Ramstein is not just any base. It is the communications center for the drone wars. It is a main entry and return point for U.S. troops in Middle Eastern wars. It is home to the Air Force component of Africom and the headquarters of the Air Force in Europe. U.S. wars depend on Ramstein, and we should shut it down.

The first step is to sign the petition at this link.

Sahra Wagenknecht, co-chair of Germany’s Left Party, told RootsAction co-founder Norman Solomon, as quoted in his new article in The Nation, «These extrajudicial killings are war crimes, and the German government should draw the consequences and close down the air base in Ramstein…. In my view, the drone war is a form of state terrorism, which is going to produce thousands of new terrorists.»

The petition — addressed to Chancellor Merkel, President Obama, the German Bundestag, and the U.S. Congress — will be delivered in Berlin at a presentation sponsored by RootsAction. The petition will also be presented to the U.S. government in Washington.

Please sign the global petition to close the Ramstein Air Base a vital step toward moving the world away from nonstop war.
