Cut off the Money: Stop US Funding for Egypt's Murderous Regime

Protest in Egypt shot by Reddit user latenightcabdrivingThe people of Egypt are in revolt against Hosni Mubarak, an oppressive dictator propped up for thirty years with billions of dollars in United States military aid -- your tax money.

Today White House said it was going to "review" the $1.3 billion in military aid we send to Egypt every year. But the time for action is now, while the people of Egypt fight for their freedom.

Sign our petition to Congress to immediately vote to cut off any American military aid to the Egyptian government:

In the streets of Cairo this week, American-made and supplied weapons are aimed at Egyptians, who are choking from tear gas also made in the USA. The US has known of widespread abuse, torture, and even murder of political dissidents under the regime of Egypt's dictator, Hosni Mubarak.

That's OUR tax money, used to torture and kill innocent people in Egypt. Our tax dollars have propped up Egypt's murderous regime for 30 years. It's time for that to end.

Congress should immediately vote to cut off all military aid to Egypt. We cannot stand for US tax dollars and US weapons to be used against the people of Egypt while they fight for freedom.
