Tell China: Time for Intervention - Send Aid to Burma NOW
**Please spread this message as far and wide as you possibly can.**
Dear friends and supporters,
We are asking for your urgent help, again. We need to send a strong message to China. We are running out of time before a massive wave of disease rushes over the surivors of the Burma cyclone.
We are hearing repeated, urgent cries from inside Burma pleading with caring countries to ignore Burma's military regime and send immediate aid to the Burmese people. Burmese Buddhist monks, student leaders, and others, yesterday issued a public appeal for countries to stop waiting for permission from the Burmese military regime and immediately dispatch relief.
The United Nations Security Council has the power to authorize the provision of aid even if the Burmese regime resists -- this would permit countries to deliver aid directly to the Burmese people. Tragically, China is blocking this effort at the UN.
Will you help us by sending an urgent email to China's Ambassador to the UN? It is unconcsionable that China would continue to block desperately needed humanitarian assistance.
Please email China's UN ambassador NOW! Or, read more details below.
We ask you to email the Chinese UN Ambassador, because under this extraordinary circumstance, while we do support countries entering Burma to provide aid without the approval of Burmese regime approval or UN approval - UN approval would still be the best way . It is especially imperative that aid reach the Irrawaddy Delta region -- helicopters, ships, and all other manner of supplies should be dispatched immediately to help the Burmese people.
