Members of the Global Anti-War Movement Oppose Nicolas Sarkozy sign now

As members of the international anti-war movement - and more broadly, members of the vast majority of citizens of the world who recognize the disastrous consequences of the invasion of Iraq by the US and its allies - we wish to voice our opposition to French Presidential candidate Nicolas Sarkozy, and to express our fervent hope that the French people will reject him in the May 6 election.

Unlike Sarkozy, we admired Frances opposition to the invasion in 2003. Sarkozy may have accused Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin of arrogance for his now-famous UN address on that occasion, but we appreciated Villepin's dissenting voice when faced with the lack of respect the US and the UK displayed for this international institution. Unlike Sarkozy, we believe that all nations must obey international law, including laws concerning human rights and immigration. We believe that those responsible for crimes against humanity, such as genocide and/or the systematic practice of torture, should be brought to justice; unlike Sarkozy, who has denied and/or minimized the crimes committed under both French colonialism and the Vichy regime on numerous occasions in order to gain votes from supporters of the right-wing extremist Jean-Marie Le Pen. Unlike Sarkozy, we believe that maintaining civil liberties and a free and independent press is vital to insuring that democratic nations live in peace with one another; we oppose his use of fear-mongering, propaganda and misinformation, the same tools that were used by the US and UK in order to drum up support for an illegal war.

The world does not need another George Bush or Tony Blair. The defeat of Silvio Berlusconi was a victory for all of us, as well as for the Italian people. We hope that the French people will deliver another resounding no! to American imperialism and its supporters on May 6, and once again earn the admiration of the world.

Nous les membres du mouvement international anti-guerre et plus gйnйralement membres de la vaste majoritй des citoyens du monde qui reconnaissent les consйquences dйsastreuses de linvasion de lIrak menйe par les Йtats-Unis et ses alliйs souhaitons faire entendre notre opposition au candidat а lйlection prйsidentielle Nicolas Sarkozy et exprimer notre espoir que la population franзaise le rejettera lors du scrutin du 6 mai prochain.

Contrairement а Sarkozy, nous avons admirй lopposition de la France а linvasion menйe en 2003. Sarkozy a certes accusй le Premier ministre Dominique de Villepin, alors ministre des Affaires йtrangиres, d arrogance quant а son intervention а lONU, devenue cйlиbre depuis, mais nous avons apprйciй la voie dissidente de ce dernier а lencontre du manque de respect dont les Йtats-Unis et la Grande-Bretagne ont fait preuve а lйgard de cette institution internationale. Contrairement а Sarkozy, nous pensons que toutes les nations doivent se soumettre au droit international, y compris aux lois relatives aux droits de lhomme et а limmigration. Nous pensons que les personnes responsables de crimes contre lhumanitй, quil sagisse de gйnocide ou de la pratique systйmatique de la torture, devraient кtre assignйes en justice ; а linverse de Sarkozy, qui a niй et minimisй les crimes commis aussi bien par le colonialisme franзais que par le rйgime de Vichy, et ce а plusieurs reprises, dans le but dattirer а lui les voix des sympathisants du leader dextrкme droite Jean-Marie Le Pen. Contrairement а Sarkozy, nous pensons que le maintien des libertйs civiles et dune presse libre et indйpendante est un йlйment vital pour sassurer que les nations dйmocratiques vivent en paix les unes avec les autres. Nous nous opposons а son utilisation de la propagande et de la dйsinformation, et son instrumentalisation de la peur. De tels outils furent dйjа utilisйs par les Йtats-Unis et la Grande-Bretagne afin de crйer un soutien artificiel а une guerre illйgale.

Le monde na pas besoin dun autre George Bush, ni dun autre Tony Blair. La dйfaite de Silvio Berlusconi a йtй une victoire pour nous tous, aussi bien que pour le peuple italien. Nous espйrons que la population franзaise fera entendre un Non vigoureux а limpйrialisme amйricain et ses affidйs le 6 mai, et rйcoltera une nouvelle fois ladmiration du monde.
