Amnesty International: Slow Aid relief is a crime against humanity!

This petition had 87 supporters

Through the Amnesty international Action Center, this email action accuses Burma of crimes against humanity due to their slow cyclone relief efforts.  This action goes straight to the horses mouth and sends an email to Linn Myaing, the Burmese Ambassador.  Tell Myaing that they are not fooling the international community and that blocking aid while thousands die is a crime.

Following the impact of Cyclone Nargis on Myanmar, which killed tens of thousands of people and displaced around a million more, Amnesty International is calling urgently on the government to open its borders to relief workers and ensure aid is provided on the basis of need without discrimination.

“Government red tape in providing visas is costing lives, while some donors are delaying aid in the fear that it will be siphoned off to the army,” said Benjamin Zawacki, Amnesty International’s Myanmar researcher. “The government should now provide access and assurances to international relief workers.”
