CALLING FOR THE RESIGNATION OF KOFI ANNAN

The latest report for the UN Security Council prepared by the UN's top envoy, Jan Pronk of The Netherlands, calls for nothing concrete.

The present UN and AU personnel in Darfur are standing by watching civilians being attacked without the power to protect and defend.

Government of Sudan is losing control of its security forces.

The Security Council will hold a formal meeting in Nairobi on November 18-19, only the fourth time it has done so outside UN headquarters in New York since 1952.

The meeting will concern the whole of Sudan and consist mainly of setting out timeframes and timetables - and provide more carrots but no sticks.

A few weeks ago I left word (yet again) at a British Member of Parliament's blog to suggest the UK ask China to send 80,000 special police to Darfur.

I emailed a copy to British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Yesterday, I left word at the blog of a high profile Conservative Member of Parliament.

My last post here on November 1st called for the resignation of Kofi Annan.

Seems the only way to get the UN to take action is to threaten its existence.

Does any reader here have the skills to put up an online petition calling for the resignation of Kofi Annan?

We'd have a week to get word of it to mainstream media.

The UN Security Council are meeting in Nairobi November 18-19, 2004.
