1972 General Resolution

WHEREAS, the mining of Haiphong and six other North Vietnamese harbors, and the resumption of heavy, indiscriminate bombing of North Vietnam are attacks of military aggression undertaken in the spring of 1972 by the United States government; and

WHEREAS, these military actions occur at a time when a substantial number of United States citizens are calling for the continuing and complete withdrawal of our troops from Southeast Asia, and an end to US participation in the Indochina war; and

WHEREAS, this military escalation in North Vietnam on the part of the United States was initiated after the deadline for placing this resolution on the Final Agenda for the 1972 UUA General Assembly;

BE IT RESOLVED: That the Eleventh Annual General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association, meeting in Dallas, Texas, June 1972, urges all US Unitarian Universalist and like-minded religious liberals to responsibly and vigorously participate in the 1972 elections, especially on the national level, so as to elect Congressmen, Senators, and a President deeply committed to immediate cessation of United States acts of war, and to working for a just and humane peace in the world and in our land.
