A Unique Petition: Repatriate Dr. Aafia Siddiqui To Her Home in Pakistan!

We urge all individuals concerned with human rights to sign this unique international petition to U.S. and Pakistani government officials, urging the immediate repatriation to Pakistan of Dr. Aafia Siddiqui.  Unlike most online petitions, each time an endorser signs this petition and hits the send button, a copy of each signed petition will go directly into the email of the targets of the petition drive; i.e. Presidents Obama and Zardari, a number of other high ranking U.S. officials, and a number of U.S. and Pakistani media organizations.
Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is being held in federal prison in New York City awaiting sentencing, now scheduled for September 23. This is a campaign for justice, solidarity and compassion for a woman and a political prisoner who has been severely injured and abused.                                   Read full story
