As of today I am renouncing my right to freedom.
I am renouncing my chance to be part of the 'best democracy in the world'.
I am waiving my rights to live the dream.
I am rejecting my roots in favour of an alien land.
Here from my comfortable seat in an English office I am putting the wheels in motion.
I have taken what will maybe be the first major decision of my life.
This decision also voids any previous plans I had. (more).

I am renouncing my American citizenship.

The events have conspired to this have been many.
My conscience will not let me rest whilst I am part of a system that violates my moral and ethical code in so many ways.
We cannot choose where we are born but we can chose where we want our children to be born.
