The following message was recieved by me:<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;"><br><br>
URGENT appeal to let the voices of the world be heard.<br><br><br><br>
The leaders of the most powerful nations on Earth have failed us. The Security Council has failed us. The world stands on the brink of war.<br><br><br><br>
If ever there was a need for the United Nations to rise to the challenge it was conceived to meet, now is that time.<br><br><br><br>

Through a little-used mechanism known as Resolution 377A, the "Uniting for Peace" resolution, the General Assembly may be the last hope for disarming Iraq peaceably and stopping the US war machine.<br><br><br><br>
You can write to your UN ambassador to support this resolution from here:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://act.greenpeace.org/aas/e?a=ufp&s=amb_s" target="_blank">http://act.greenpeace.org/aas/e?a=ufp&s=amb_s</a><br><br><br><br>
The Uniting for Peace resolution empowers the General Assembly to meet in emergency session to address acts of aggression or a breach of the peace when the Security Council has been unable to act. Its was first used to bring about a cease-fire in the Suez crisis of 1950, forcing Britain and France to withdraw from Egypt within a week, even after they had vetoed calls for a cease-fire in the Security Council. It's been used ten times since then, most often at the request of the United States.<br><br><br><br>
If you believe, as we do, that the very future of the world, and of the United Nations, is being put at risk in the name of a pre-emptive war, please join the call for the UN General Assembly to respond. Ask that the Uniting for Peace resolution be invoked, that the war on Iraq be condemned, and that peaceable means of disarming Iraq be sought.<br><br><br><br>
The next hours may provide our last chance to change a dangerous course in history. The United Nations must not allow a world order based on multilateralism to be replaced with one in which the mightiest and richest make the rules.<br><br><br><br>
