Kampuchea

August 5, 1983

The 22nd Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 31 July – 6 August, 1983 in Göteborg, Sweden:

(To all governmental delegations with a copy to the Secretary General of the UN.)

Whereas the so-called “Democratic Kampuchea” regime of Pol Pot-leng Sary-Khieu Samphon, 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 delegates of this so-called democratic 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 therefore resolved that WILPF, meeting in its 22nd Triennial Congress call upon the Member States of the United Nations to unseat the so-called “Democratic Kampuchea” represented now by a coalition of three parties, i.e. Sihanoak, Son Sann, Khieu Samphon (the Pol Pot regime) at the next UN General Assembly in September, 1983.
