Avaaz.org a community of global citizens acting on the major issues facing the world, is running an online petition for Burma on its site. The group has sent tens of thousands of messages to foreign ministers in Europe and Asia, raised funds for Burmese groups and run a global ad campaign.

Now it wants to grow the petition to a million names and deliver it formally to the Security Council itself, to push them to go further and mediate talks in Burma. Over 820,000 supporters have signed up. You can sign the petition here.
