Not sure if a petition has been circulated in the Thread, but here's one for posters from ONE:



The petition says:

Dear Secretary General Ban Ki-moon,

We're counting on you to pressure world leaders to quickly make bold commitments and help end the Ebola epidemic now.

This disease can be stopped. World leaders know what needs to be done. We need more personnel, materials and international coordination - and the UN estimates that donors need to step up with $1 billion, and that could rise. So tell Ban Ki-moon to pressure world leaders to quickly make bold commitments and help end the Ebola epidemic now.

Thanks for taking action today. We'll keep you updated on how the meetings go.

- ONE

CONAKRY, Sept 18 (Reuters) - Eight bodies, including those of three journalists, were found after an attack on a team trying to educate locals on the risks of the Ebola virus in a remote area of southeastern Guinea, a government spokesman said on Thursday.
"The eight bodies were found in the village latrine. Three of them had their throats slit," Damantang Albert Camara told Reuters by telephone in Conakry.
However, Guinea's Prime Minister Mohamed Saïd Fofana, speaking in a television message that had been recorded earlier, said 7 bodies of 9 missing people had been found.
He said six people have been arrested following the incident, which took place on Tuesday in Wome, a village close to the town of Nzerekore, in Guinea's southeast, where Ebola was first identified in March.
Since then the virus has killed some 2,630 people and infected at least 5,357 people, according to World Health Organization (WHO), mostly in Guinea, neighbouring Sierra Leone and Liberia. It has also spread to Senegal and Nigeria.
Authorities in the region are faced with widespread fears, misinformation and stigma among residents of the affected countries, complicating efforts to contain the highly contagious disease.
Fofana said the team that included local administrators, two medical officers, a preacher and three accompanying journalists, was attacked by a hostile stone-throwing crowd from the village when they tried to inform people about Ebola.
He said it was regrettable that the incident occurred as the international community was mobilising to help countries struggling to contain the disease.

MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) — The U.S. Embassy in Liberia says the first shipment of increased American military aid to help fight the Ebola epidemic has landed in the West African country.
A C-17 U.S. military aircraft brought a team of seven military personnel along with some equipment on Thursday. An embassy statement said more supplies and personnel are expected in the coming days.
The U.S. Embassy says Maj. Gen. Darryl Williams arrived in the country on Tuesday and has been meeting with Liberian officials.
President Barack Obama on Tuesday announced the United States is sending 3,000 troops to help fight the Ebola outbreak that has killed more than 2,600 people across West Africa. More than half the deaths have occurred in Liberia
