Urgent New Security Council Action on Iraq

Urgent New Security Council Action on Iraq

Events are racing forward as a proposed US/UK resolution on Iraq has split the UN Security Council into opposing factions.

More than 20 thousand cyberactivists from 140 countries and territories sent letters to the UN Security Council using a previous Greenpeace action alert.

Now we urgently need your support again, even if you sent the first letter to the Security Council.

Please take a few minutes today to send a letter to each of the Security Council factions. We have a suggested letter that you can read and optionally change that is appropriate for each faction.
