Condemn anti-Asian American Hate Incidents in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! sign now

The intent of this petition is to show solidarity with the Asian-American community in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to condemn the racist hate letters and cowardly threats that were sent to Asian-American owned businesses in the Philadelphia area in October of 2005, and to request that the relevant authorities take appropriate action in bringing the perpetrators to justice.

On October 24, 2005 NBC 10 Philadelphia reported that letters were sent to least three Asian businesses -- one in Center City and two in South Philadelphia. The letters threatened the rape of Asian women and the bombing of Asian businesses.
