WHEREAS the military conflict in Vietnam is destroying life, property, economic resources and is threatening the peace of the world;
WHEREAS the military presence of the United States in South Vietnam is contrary to the spirit of the Geneva Agreements of 1954;
WHEREAS South Vietnam does not appear to have a stable government supported by the people;
WHEREAS the American Ethical Union is profoundly concerned both in its philosophy and in practical application with the abolition of war and the promotion of world peace;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the 1966 Assembly of the American Ethical Union urges the government of the United States to:
1. Declare a moratorium on the bombing of Vietnam, both North and South;
2. Announce its willingness to negotiate with the National Liberation Front, as well as with other parties in the dispute, in an effort to establish an interim government;
3. Honor the Geneva Agreements of 1954 and allow the people of Vietnam to conduct their own free elections under the supervision of an international body, such as the United Nations;
4. Recommend to the United Nations that it send an international police force to Vietnam to insure the peaceful stability of that nation until a new government is firmly established.
