The people who started that chain letter have already apologised for
doing so, and if you wish to sign the petition you should do so via
their Web page at

All chain letters are bad. Without *any* exceptions, as far as I know.
Do not propagate them. In this case the problem is not only that
people will get multiple copies of them (I have seen this one at
least two dozen times!), but that the result will be the submission of
hundreds of petitions with the same first ten or twenty names on them.
