Ask Sting to Donate Profits from Uzbekistan’s Brutal Dictator


Sting -- a musician known for being a prominent human rights supporter and activist -- recently performed in Uzbekistan for Gulnara Karimov, the daughter of Islam Karimov, the brutal ruler of Uzbekistan.

The dictator has been accused of massacring hundreds of people attending a peaceful protest and Uzbekistan has been profiting from the ongoing use of forced child labor in the country’s cotton industry.

Sting said he is “well aware of the Uzbek president's appalling reputation in the field of human rights as well as the environment.” And that he “made the decision to play there in spite of that."

Sting made $2 million for this performance. Sign this petition and ask him to give that money to human right’s organizations working in Uzbekistan. Sting is known for his values and he needs to stand by them once again
