1971 General Resolution

BE IT RESOLVED: The Tenth General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association urges the President of the United States:
  1. To order the Joint Chiefs of Staff to issue a cease-fire to all American troops in Southeast Asia immediately; also, to announce and plan a complete and immediate withdrawal which in no way will be contingent upon the progress of peace negotiations;
  2. To cease all aid by the State Department, Defense Department and all other agencies of government which contribute to the military buildup of the countries of Southeast Asia;
  3. To promote creation of an interim coalition government for South Vietnam which will include representatives of all political factions of any appreciable size of the country;
  4. In recognition of our basic responsibility for much of the destruction in Southeast Asia, to do two things:
    1. create an emergency relief agency charged with the responsibility for providing hospitals, medical care, food, sanitation facilities and housing;
    2. request an immediate appropriation in the amount of six billion dollars to the United Nations Development Program, ear-marking it for development of industrial and agricultural productivity, education, public utilities, public health and social services in the countries of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.
