Helicopters for Darfur

Credit to Gordon Brown for his role in pushing through Security Council resolution 1769 a few months ago.


The UN has pledged to send an international peacekeeping force to Darfur but it is being held up largely because no country has yet donated any of the 24 helicopters needed for the operation.

Even more credit would be due if Brown could take a lead and help out here.

This petition is to ask Gordon Brown to set an example to the international community by immediately providing 5 of the helicopters required.
