Resolution of the International Solidarity Commission (IWW) against the War

From the open publishing newswire: Declaration of the official stand of the International Solidarity Commission of the Industrial Workers of the World, standing in opposition to War and Empire.

BE IT RESOLVED THAT the Industrial Workers of the World call on its members and allies to vocally oppose the Anglo-American war against Iraq and advocate against the recruitment and participation of workers in domestic spying efforts, as is possible through popular education, pickets, leaflets, email list-servers, on-line chats, forums and direct action.

Be it resolved that the Industrial Workers of the World call on the United States, United Kingdom and their Western allies to immediately stop the export of weapons and honour their treaty commitments to destroy their stockpiles of chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons. The West must demonstrate the political and military futility of these weapons to the rest of the world and reduce their availability or other States will never stop trying to develop weapons of mass destruction.
