"There is no justification for a war against Iraq"
To the German government and the members of the UN Security Council
January 1 the Federal Republic of Germany will become a member in the United Nations Security Council for two years. In February, Germany will preside over this body.
The German government's repeated NO to the war against Iraq was also decisive for it's reelection during the federal elections in September 2002. The responsibility bestowed on this issue by the German electorate upon their government can be lived up to through it's cooperation within the UN Security Council.
Therefore we demand of the government of the Federal Republic of Germany, as well as of all other member states of the United Nations Security Council:
The primary mission of the United Nations is the prevention of wars and the promotion of peaceful coexistence among peoples. The way in which the United Nations handles the Iraq conflict, will serve as a yardstick for judging how well the UN lives up to its responsibility.
There is no justification for a war against Iraq.
I support this appeal:
