Dear friends

On day 6 since Cyclone Nargis struck Burma, most people have still not
received any aid because of restrictions by the regime. Every day of delay
is likely to cost thousands of lives. More than one million people are
believed to be homeless, and more than 100,000 could have been killed.

The United Nations has the power to authorise aid shipments to Burma even
though the regime has not given permission. The French government has tried
to secure a discussion on this at the Security Council, but other Council
members, including the UK government, have not added their support.

In 2006 the Security Council passed Resolution 1674 which stated that the
Council could intervene in circumstances similar to that in Burma.

It is time to demand that the UN Security Council pass a resolution invoking
its responsibility to protect to ensure that aid gets to the Burmese people,
and fast. UK support for this proposal is essential.

Please take action now and send an email to the UK Government urging them to
support UN action to deliver aid to Burma.
