1972 - 64th Annual AEU Assembly
WHEREAS, many draft resisters now living abroad have acted out of revulsion to war which by now is widely recognized as unjust or immoral, or at least a governmental action which was a grave mistake; and
WHEREAS, many draft resisters abroad have not broken any law, as they have emigrated to countries with whom the United States maintains friendly relations and have renounced United States citizenship before having become obligated to service in the armed forces of the United States; and
WHEREAS, most resisters abroad have suffered hardships of separation from their families, lack of employment, and other difficulties;
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the repatriation of those resisters abroad who have not broken any law of the United States as they have not become obligated to service in the armed forces should be facilitated by the requisite legislative or administrative action for repatriation and restoration of citizenship.
