The 12th Triennial Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, 4-8 August, 1953 in Paris, France:
The XII International Congress of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom meeting in Paris, August 4-8th, 1953,
Believing that the stationing of foreign troops in many countries, sometimes under conditions which amount to the granting of improper extra-territorial rights to the foreign powers concerned,
And believing that this state of affairs aggravates the danger of war and increases international misunderstanding,
Expresses its earnest desire to see these troops withdrawn and all foreign occupation ended with the least possible delay.
