August 22, 1980

The 21st Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 19-23 August, 1980 in Hamden, Connecticut:

(To government delegations to the United Nations)

Whereas the Pol Pot/IHeng Sary regime, having pursued policies of genocide within Kampuchea and having violated the rights of the people in an almost unprecedented way is no longer in control of either people or territory, and

Whereas the presence of the Pol Pot/Iang Sary regime as the official representative of Kampuchea in the United Nations is unjustifiable both morally and legally and stands as an obstacle to the true representation of Kampuchea in the United Nations,

Be it resolved that the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, meeting at its 21st International Congress in Hamden, Connecticut, 19-23 August, 1980,

Calls upon the member states of the United Nations to unseat the Pol Pot/ Iang Sary regime at the next United Nations General Assembly in September of 1980.
