Amnesty International Resolution



This resolution is a tad confused.  It apparently assumes that sanctions
are bad because the US and UK are bombing, and therefore sanctions violate
the Geneva Conventions regulating warfare.  But what if the US and UK stop
bombing? 

Also it calls to lift all sanctions related to "essential civilian needs;"
well, so does the infamous UNSC Resolution 661.  Perhaps AI folks in the UK
could tweak  the wording of this resolution to match what I assume were its
drafters' intent--that is, a call to remove all non-military sanctions.

Hoping in Cambridge, USA,

Jennifer
