Race Relations in South Africa

6 August 1953

The 12th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 4-8 August, 1953 in Paris, France:

The XII International Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom meeting in Paris, August 4-8th, 1953,

Deeply regrets the decision of the Government of the Union of South Africa refusing admission to the United Nations Commission of Three charged by the General Assembly to study the racial situation in South Africa in the light and principles of the Charter of the United Nations;

And in view of these circumstances is glad to note that the Commission accepts testimony, written or oral, by representatives of Governments of Member States of the United Nations; of Non-Governmental Organizations and also by private individuals.
