The 11th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 15-19 August, 1949 in Copenhagen, Denmark:

The XIth International Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, assembled at Copenhagen from August 15-19, 1949,


That all colonial powers have promised to guide and orientate gradually the indigenous population towards political independence,

That several such territories, among others the Viet Nam, have arrived at a self-governing state and now request such independence,

Considering also that no prejudice of color, no idea of so-called superiority of the white race should be taken into account, shall place these territories under the administration of the Trusteeship Council for a limited period of five to ten years, during which time they should gain their complete independence.

Such a policy by member States should put an end to the recent practice of making and reversing decisions regarding Non Self Governing peoples in deference to the wishes of colonial powers.
