Dear fellow citizen of the planet,
The "Hello America!" campaign was launched in Oslo, Norway, at 12.30 PM CET, January 6th 2003.
It is now being spread all over the world.
We want to carpet bomb the world with a message of support for all peace loving Americans.

Please do the following:
1. Add your name to the list below. (Under the "Hello America!" letter)
2. Forward the whole mail to your friends and contacts, with copies to the following recipients:

Bush: president@whitehouse.gov and Cheney: vice.president@whitehouse.gov




The USA is on the brink of war.  An aggressive and unpredictable leader is spreading fear and insecurity. His name is George W. Bush.

Mr. Bush possesses massive arsenals of weapons of mass destruction. He claims he has the right to use them.

He was never elected by a majority of his people. (32 % of adult Americans voted for Bush. He got 
539,989 less votes than opponent Al Gore)

He leads a regime, where he himself - and a  rich elite - enjoy enormous wealth and growing privileges,  while millions live in poverty and despair. People of ethnic minorities are oppressed and humiliated.

His country ranks highest in the world with regard to not signing human rights treaties.


We know that most Americans want peace, prosperity and justice for all. You are good people, like most people are, in Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Korea, Ukraine, Australia, Norway, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Indonesia, Brazil, India, Bolivia, Iran, Uganda, Portugal and elsewhere.

We thank you for giving us Abraham Lincoln, Bessie Smith, Elvis Presley, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Hank Williams, Martin Luther King jr., Toni Morrison,  Jimi Hendrix, Jesse Owens, Woody Allen, Miles Davis, Ernest Hemingway, Helen Keller, Madonna, John Steinbeck, Jimmy Carter, Julia Roberts, Muhammad Ali and many more.

If we can do anything to help you get rid of George W. Bush before he wrecks your reputation and messes  up the whole planet, please let us know!

Best regards,
Your worried friends in the rest of the World.
