For a United Nations that is united.
For a Security Council that promotes security.
Five of the Council’s members can choose to completely block any action they are not satisfied with. In doing so they fail to prevent crises and conflicts.
Stop Illegitimate Vetoes is a campaign meant to stop that.
We want a guarantee from the five permanent members of the Security Council who hold the veto power that they will not use the veto unless a proposed resolution poses an immediate threat to their security or sovereignty.
