> for the world to condemn the war in Iraq.
> On Wednesday, 26 March, there was an 'open
> session' of the UN Security Council, and members
> are expected to put forward a resolution
> condemning the war and calling for a ceasefire.
> The debate is expected to carry on until Thursday,

> vetoed by the US and UK.
> Arab League Foreign Ministers, as well as their
> colleagues in the non-Aligned Movement, have
> said that if there is no Security Council resolution,
> they will invoke Resolution 377 ('Uniting for Peace'),
> and call for an Emergency Session of the UN
> General Assembly, where a resolution calling for
> an end to the war would get overwhelming support.
> We have chosen several countries whose support
> for this move is key to its success. Any country

> withstand diplomatic and economic blackmail
> from the US and the UK in order to exercise their
> democratic right to speak on behalf of their people.
