Resolution: Building a broad, united movement against war and repression
The following resolution was passed at the 2011 Committee to Stop FBI Repression conference.
Whereas, the Committee to Stop FBI Repression (CSFR) defends all victims of FBI and U.S. government repression, including all who oppose U.S. wars and occupation the world over, and
Whereas, many of the 24 victims targeted by the FBI are facing possible long term prison sentences because of their anti-war and solidarity activities with oppressed people in Palestine and Colombia as well as Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan and Libya, and
Whereas, a pre-requisite for building a broad, united and winning movement against U.S. imperial wars and occupations must include unqualified solidarity with all those who are victimized for their anti-war activities,
Therefore, be it resolved that this 2nd national CSFR conference assembled in Chicago on November 5, 2011, declares its commitment to endorsing, building, and participating in the United National Antiwar Coalition National Conference, March 23-25, 2012, in Stamford, Connecticut, “Say No to the NATO/G8 War and Poverty Agenda”, and
Be it further resolved that the CSFR endorse, support, and help lead the campaign for the fundamental democratic right to organize a massive, peaceful, permitted demonstration on May 15 and 19 to protest the NATO/G8 war makers and austerity imposing summit meetings set to convene at the invitation of the Obama Administration in Chicago, May 15-22, 2012, and
Be it further resolved that the CSFR endorses and builds the national and international Chicago protests on May 15 and 19 initiated by UNAC and called by the Committee Against NATO/G8 War and Poverty Agenda.
Be it finally resolved that in all these activities, the CSFR will stress the inseparable link between the struggles against all US wars abroad, and the attacks against the standard of living, quality of life, and basic civil liberties at home.
