The UN Security Council has finally spoken out about Nigeria, but violence is escalating. Avaaz.org has created a petition to call for an urgent resolution to protect civilians and tell everyone:
We are horrified by the latest killings by Boko Haram in Nigeria. We urge you to convene an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council, issue a Presidential Statement, and pass a resolution that includes measures to protect civilians, holds military forces accountable for human rights violations, and presses the Nigerian government to enact reforms that will more effectively protect and serve its citizens. It is time the world prioritised action to end this brutal conflict.
