22 August 1980
The 21st Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 19-23 August, 1980 in Hamden, Connecticut:
To the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Secretary of State Muskie:
Whereas the continuation of the crisis in South East Asia endangers world peace, and
Whereas the rehabilitation and restoration of post-war Vietnam is crucial to peace and stability in South East Asia, and
Whereas the rehabilitation and restoration of Vietnam is impeded by the political and economic isolation maintained by the United States of America and some of its allies due to such measures as trade embargoes, absence of diplomatic relations and withholding of aid,
Be it therefore resolved that the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, meeting in International Congress, 19-23 August, 1980, urges the US to normalize relations with Vietnam, remove the trade embargoes and contribute a just share of aid to the rehabilitation and restoration of Vietnam.
