Do not block humanitarian aid

Citizenswho have been hit by Cyclone Nargis in Burma and citizens who have been hit byearthquake in China have rights to get aid from outside their countriesdirectly. No authorities should be entitled to block the aid.  Professional aid workers, both inside andoutside, should have priority to enter disaster areas. The Internationalcommunity  continues to add pressure sothat Burmese and Chinese Governments do not repress global  and local civil service and citizen’s initiativeswhich provide humanitarian aid.
