Congress Resolution on Cuba

27 July 2007

Whereas the United States of America is maintaining a military presence within the sovereign territory of the Republic of Cuba; and 

Whereas the United States of America has conducted military operations on the territory it occupies; and 

Whereas the United States of America has incarcerated citizens of several nations and perpetuated human rights violations in its actions towards them during their confinement; and 

Whereas the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights has notified the USA that it has broken certain international laws and conventions in its operations in regard to these prisoners held on Cuban soil; 

Therefore the 29th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, meeting July 21-27, 2007 in Santa Cruz, Bolivia calls upon the US to relinquish its hold on Cuban territory; to withdraw from that territory; and to cease and desist from the human rights violations it is now practicing within the Cuban sovereign territory.
