On Extraordinary Rendition and Guantanamo Bay: WILPF
strongly condemns the practice of extraordinary rendition by the United States of America and other complicit governments, and calls for an end to this practice and the closure of all the secret prisons as well as the closure of the US prison in Guantanamo Bay.
The UN Practicum in Advocacy has been a program of WILPF
US since 2008 and is specifically tailored for university and college students looking to learn and expand their advocacy skills on the international level.
I believe firmly that it is incumbent on WILPF
members to analyze honestly and courageously the causes and effects of today's conflicts and of the many global problems if the organisation is to abide by its Constitution and be true to its aims "to study and make known and help abolish the political, social, economic and psychological causes of war and to work for a constructive peace." Only on the basis of sound analysis can we successfully pursue our objectives.
