This has been brought up on the forum before but it was almost two years ago and the deadline for the petition is in just over a month.
It is addressed to the United Nations General Assembly and asks them to 'adopt, fund and implement' the United Nations Decade of Contact.
The plea begins as follows:
Reaffirming United Nations General Assembly decision 33/426, 1978, approved 18 December 1978, provides: "2. The General Assembly invites
interested Member States to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life,
including unidentified flying objects, and to inform the Secretary-General of the observations, research and evaluation of such activities."
This is dynamite. Please sign the petition. They are far from their goal of 10,000 signatures and the deadline is just around the corner.
