Zimbabwe petition-Truth!

Petition to President Bush Regarding the Future of Zimbabwe-Truth! But Origin and Impact Uncertain

 
Summary of eRumor:
An email petition that asks the recipient to add his or her name to the bottom and pass it along to others.  Every 100th person is to forward it to the email address of the President of the United States.  The petition calls for various political reforms and calls on the international community to intervene in Zimbabwe to prevent violence and starvation.
 
The Truth:
The petition is circulating on the Internet so to that extent, it exists and is true.  TruthOrFiction.com is classifying it as Unproven!, however, because who started it and what impact it can have are not certain.  Email petitions lack the punch of petitions that are personally signed by citizens primarily because anyone can fabricate email names and add them to an email petition.
