Pubblichiamo questo appello alle Nazioni Unite della “Burma Campaign UK” e chiediamo ai nostri lettori di sostenerlo. Segue introduzione alla campagna e link per sostenerla.
Please take action to help us persuade the EU to support a UN Commission of Inquiry into crimes against humanity and war crimes in Burma.
In March 2010, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Burma called for a United Nations Commission of Inquiry into war crimes and crimes against humanity in Burma. The UK, USA, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Australia have all expressed their support for such an inquiry. However, the EU has so far remained silent on the issue.
This week, the EU is drafting the next UN General Assembly resolution on Burma. This resolution is an opportunity to turn words into action and the EU should ensure that the establishment of a UN Inquiry is included in the resolution.
Belgium is the current President of the EU Council and must take the lead in securing EU support for a UN Commission of Inquiry into crimes against humanity and war crimes in Burma and ensuring the establishment of a UN Inquiry is in the United Nations General Assembly resolution.
We need your help to persuade them and we only have a few days!
Please take action and send an email to the Belgian Prime Minister Yves Leterme and Foreign Minister Steven Vanackere:
Thank you for your support.
