Whilst it is unlikely that president–elect Obama can possibly fulfill all the hopes and expectations placed upon him there is at least a realistic expectation that some of the worst features of the policies enacted by the Bush Administration may be at an end.
AVAAZ is a global web movement with a simple democratic mission: to close the gap between the world we have, and the world most people everywhere want. Utilising the potential of the internet, AVAAZ has mobilised millions around the world in support of selected campaigns.
The most recent initiative is to organize the sending of a message to Barak Obama congratulating him on his election and looking forward to his implementation of his campaign commitments to sign a strong new global treaty on climate change, close Guantanamo prison and end torture, withdraw carefully from Iraq, and double aid to fight poverty.
By visiting the above website you can endorse the message and add your name to the quarter of a million that have been gathered so far in four days.
