Uniting for Peace - UN RES 377

by Susie Dow Wednesday, Mar. 19, 2003 at 5:18 AM

At the Three Hundred and Second Plenary Meeting on 3 November 1950 the UN General Assembly adopted A/RES/377 (V) "Uniting for Peace" UN resolution 377 allows the General Assembly to recommend collective action "if the Security Council, because of lack of unanimity of the permanent members, fails to exercise its primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security".

March 17, 2003

Tonight, on American television, President George W. Bush said that diplomacy was finished. I respectfully disagree. Chile, France, Germany and many many nations around the world have pressed forward, thru the UN, seeking non-violent alternatives to war as well as peaceful means of disarmament. Diplomacy is clearly not yet finished.

The international community must step in to avert a war in Iraq. Invoking UN Resolution 377 is one means to provide more time for the international community to continue diplomacy and dialogue. At the beginning of the 21st century, this very dialogue may change forever war as the sole means of disarmament.

Please consider contacting a permanent member of the UN either by phone, email, fax or mail. Addresses may be found on their websites listed at:

A pdf of "Uniting for Peace" Resolution 377 may be viewed at:

left hand column, 2nd to last box: A/RES/377 (V)

Below, I have included those email addresses that were available online for UN members. But given the urgency, there may be less than 48 hours before bombing begins, a phone call may be the best course of action.

Let the world Unite for Peace.
