Many around world stand with you

The Daily Planet received a copy of this letter addressed to the mayor and council: 

I read about your recently passed resolutions originally in a slanted piece from the AP. I wanted to write to let all of you, both to the five with the courage to publicly stand up for decency, and to the others who abstained, that there are plenty of people around the world who stand with you, against the forces that perpetuate violence in the name of profit, or whatever bogus nationalism that profit hides behind. I can’t speak for everyone, but for myself I wish to thank you for your courage in taking a currently unfashionable stand. 

I have many fond memories of your city from my visits there, and wish to assure you that, despite any short-term financial setbacks that your actions may cause, that doing the right thing for humanity will make much more of an impression than worrying about keeping your mouths shut for the sake of the almighty dollar.
