Condemn Turkish President’s Violent Attack on American Citizens

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Condemn Turkish president’s order to violently attack American citizens in Washington, D.C.

American citizens simply demonstrating their First Amendment rights were violently attacked by the bodyguards of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on American soil. Only blocks away from the White House, these American citizens were protesting the authoritarian Turkish president when he sent his bodyguards and security detail to physically assault them.

These protesters were outnumbered by the security detail, with about two men for every protester. The American citizens were pushed to the ground, kicked, and punched. One woman was even held in a choke-hold. Many protesters were sent to the hospital. Even Washington, D.C. police were pushed to the side.

Donald Trump, who has praised Erdogan, has remained silent on this incident, despite the fact that his own citizens were attacked and brutalized for demonstrating their constitutional rights. Demand that Trump condemn this violence against the citizens he is supposed to protect.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

While Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan recently visited Washington, D.C., he was greeted by protesters. He retaliated against these protesters by sending his security detail to violently attack them. These protesters, outnumbered by the bodyguards, were punched, kicked, and even choked. Many were sent to the hospital.

Despite the fact your own citizens were attacked in their own country by another leader simply for demonstrating their First Amendment rights, you have remained silent. You took an oath to defend the Constitution and protect Americans; however, you have shown yourself to be a coward in the face of strongman authoritarian leaders. I demand that you condemn this violence taken against your citizens.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
