Iraq, war illegal and immoral

Going to war against Iraq, apart from being illegal, has no moral authority.

The vast majority of the people in the country have shown their total opposition to such a war.

To their shame, the Labour government has denied the British parliament the full and proper opportunity to debate and vote on the issue.

The Green Party calls upon the people to offer peaceful resistance, including committing acts of civil disobedience and non-violent direct action.

In these exceptional circumstances, the Green Party calls upon members of the armed forces to show their opposition, and further resolves that members of the armed forces would be in their right to refuse to obey orders.

The Green Party would offer support to any member who disobeyed orders to avoid criminal liability.

This conference calls on Green Party executive to take all possible steps to carry out the above.
