Just listened to a 2 & 1/2 hour UN Security Council meeting on the Rohingya genocide. When it comes to long-winded speeches, the UN is right on top of things. When it comes to action–like sanctions against Burma, humanitarian aid to refugees, or asylum with visas & full refugee rights–the UN diplomats are all hot air.

And for the record, under capitalist competition, there is no such thing as an “international community”–unless you’re talking about social movements of solidarity.
