Sign Petition to UN for humanitarian aid in Burma’s cyclone disaster
United Nations to apply “responsibility to protect” doctrine to force international aid into Myanmar
To: United NationsBan Ki Moon
Nargis Cyclone had hit Myanmar delta region on May 3, 2008.
The top United States diplomat in Myanmar estimated that the death toll could rise as high as 100,000, from the official tally of 22,500 with conditions growing worse in the vast, flooded Irrawaddy Delta region,. Now half a million of people went missing on flooded region and survivors need immediate care to prevent from unnecessary losses of lives.
International communities offer help to humanitarian crisis in Myanmar including United States, United Kingdom, Australia, French and others. However, Myanmar government do not granted the visas to the aid workers until now and hampering efforts of international aid agencies to save lives of Myanmar people by many ways.
We understand that United Nation recognized doctrine 途esponsibility to protect・when governments could not or would not protect their citizens, even if this meant intervention that violated national sovereignty.
Hence, we strongly encourage you to applied “responsibility to protect” doctrine immediately and force the international aid into Myanmar to save the lives of hundreds of thousand of people without any further delay.
It is a humanitarian crisis with million of people lives are at stake. We hope that United Nations response urgently to the problem facing international aid agencies to help people of Myanmar.
