Urgent Peace Opportunity
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 for at least one additional day, but it is clear that any such resolution will be 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 that puts this forward, will potentially face diplomatic and economic blackmail from the US and the UK.

to write to the Foreign Ministers of Cuba, South Africa, Malaysia, Indonesia, Nigeria, New Zealand, Switzerland, Fiji, Mexico, Chile, Germany, Russia, and France, and ask them to support 'Uniting for Peace'.
