Ban Ki-moon: Sack Tony Blair as the Middle East "Peace Envoy"
Over 12,000 signatures so far. Help us get over 50,000 by Friday!
Jun 25, 2014 — After some excellent media coverage and tweets of support from Stephen Fry and George Monbiot, our petition to get Tony Blair sacked as the Peace Envoy has now received over 12,500 signatures; thank you!
We were also very happy to see our open letter to Blair’s Quartet bosses – signed by a coalition of former UK ambassadors, prominent British politicians and Professor Noam Chomsky – covered by Channel 4 News, the Huffington Post and the Daily Mail.
But we believe we can still go much further.
With your help, we’d like our petition to top 50,000 signatures by this Friday, the seven-year anniversary of Blair’s appointment as the Envoy.
We won’t stop until Blair is removed from his position, so please keep sharing the petition via email. Facebook and Twitter: http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/ban-ki-moon-sack-tony-blair-as-the-middle-east-peace-envoy
We have more mischief planned for later in the week, so stay tuned for more updates, and keep up with the latest on the campaign on Twitter at #SackBlair.
