“I got inspired – and yes we need to stop illegitimate veteos”
“I just have a big respect and admiration for your Campaign. You struggle, believe in change and you’re hard working. I am happy to see young people who still believe that global peace is attainable. Not just that, but you are working so hard to reach that goal or at least take this struggle a step forward. I got inspired – And yes, we need to stop illegitiamte veteos. Keep the great work up.” – Nidhal Ali, student, Sweden “The permanent five members, they usethe veto in situations where it’s actually not legitimate. And this is why I think that it is so important that member states but also non-governmental organizations and students around the world analyse this uestion and send a very, very firm message to the Security Council that htey have to do better.” – Hans Corell, Former Undersecretary General of legal affairs and the legal council of the United Nations
“In certain situations we can have the vast majority of the General Assembly adopt a non-binding resolution, and then 14 of the 15 Security Council members vote in support of that resolution, but this can all be hijacked by one permanent member vetoing the resolution. I mean, this is a historic anachronism and illustrates a necessity for wider UN Security Council reform.” – Ryan X. D’Souza, Advocacy Officer at Global Center of Responsibillity to Protect “The Challenge Group and its project which I strongly believe are key features on to maintain international peace and security, making it vital to spread awarness about the consequenses of the use of the veto by the permanent members of the UN Security Council.” – Marcelo Cespedes, lawyer, Argentina
