The 15th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 8-13 July 1962 in San Francisco, USA:
The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, at its Fifteenth Triennial Congress, meeting in San Francisco (Asilomar, California), July 8-13, 1962, received relief news of Algeria’s independence, achieved at such a high cost. We hope the proclamation establishing independence will put an end to the action of the Secret Army Organization. We deplore the renewal of violence, which has already sacrificed many human lives. We earnestly hope that the discipline and the wisdom shown by the Algerians since the Evian Agreement will enable them to cooperate among all conflicting factions in the near future.
