Antarctic

July 24, 1989

The 24th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 14-25 July, 1989 in Sydney, Australia:

Mindful of the pioneering work started by Emily Green Blach and Gertrud Baer in 1947 to protect the Antarctic continent from pollution and exploitation, and considering the pressure exerted by seven Antarctic claimant countries to pass this fall the Antarctic minerals bill which would allow mining with consequent environmental damage, we call on all sections to urge their governments to support the designation of the Antarctic as a WORLD PARK, under the auspices of the United Nations.
