"Tomorrow, on April 28, the United Nations Security Council will receive a report on Iran from the UN's nuclear watchdog agency, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It is likely the IAEA report will repeat what it has said earlier: that while there is no direct evidence Iran has diverted nuclear production to a weapons program, Iran has engaged in an 18 year secret nuclear program and failed to fulfil its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. But whatever the report says, the Bush administration has made clear its intention to take military action against the Tehran government if it does not comply. This is enormous pressure on the Security Council to allow the Bush Adminstration to dictate UN policy on Iran. Just a few years ago, massive global mobilization, and the millions of people in the streets of cities around the world saying NO to Bush's war, helped governments to resist US pressure. That same mobilization forced the United Nations to do what its Charter requires: standing against "the scourge of war." The UN refused to grant the US legitimacy for its illegal invasion of Iraq. That UN resistance insured that the whole world had to recognise the US war and occupation of Iraq was and remains illegal. Now we must ensure that the Security Council hears those voices once again. United for Peace and Justice, the largest and broadest anti-war coalition in the United States, has launched a campaign aimed at the UN Security Council, demanding that the Council stand firm against US pressure. Please sign this letter. With your signature it will be sent automatically to the ambassador and foreign minister of each member of the Security Council. Please join Australian voices to those of UFPJ to demand again that the world say NO to war!"
