THE KUALA LUMPUR INITIATIVE TO CRIMINALISE WAR

December 23, 2005
Kuala Lumpur Global Peace Forum


THE KUALA LUMPUR INITIATIVE

TO CRIMINALISE WAR


17TH DECEMBER 2005


THE Kuala Lumpur Global Peace Forum of concerned peoples from all five continents

UNITED in the belief that peace is the essential condition for the survival and well-being of the human race,

DETERMINED to promote peace and save succeeding generations from the scourge of war,

OUTRAGED over the frequent resort to war in the settlement of disputes between nations,

DISTURBED that militarists are preparing for more wars,

TROUBLED that use of armed force increases insecurity for all,

TERRIFIED that the possession of nuclear weapons and the imminent risk of nuclear war will lead to the annihilation of life on earth.

To achieve peace we now declare that:

  1. Wars increasingly involve the killing of innocent people and are, therefore, abhorrent and criminal.

  2. Killings in war are as criminal as the killings within societies in times of peace.

  3. Since killings in peace time are subject to the domestic law of crime, killings in war must likewise be subject to the international law of crimes. This should be so irrespective of whether these killings in war are authorized or permitted by domestic law.

  4. All commercial, financial, industrial and scientific activities that aid and abet war should be criminalised.

  5. All national leaders who initiate aggression must be subjected to the jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court.

  6. All nations must strengthen the resolve to accept the purposes and principles of the United Nations Charter and institute methods to settle international disputes by peaceful means and to renounce war.

  7. Armed force shall not be used except when authorised by a Resolution passed by two-thirds majority of the total membership of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

  8. All legislators and all members of Government must affirm their belief in peace and pledge to strive for peace.

  9. Political parties all over the world must include peace as one of their principal objectives.

  10. Non-Governmental Organisations committed to the promotion of peace should be set up in all nations.

  11. Public servants and professionals, in particular in the medical, legal, educational and scientific fields, must promote peace and campaign actively against war.

  12. The media must actively oppose war and the incitement to war and consciously promote the peaceful settlement of international disputes.

  13. Entertainment media must cease to glorify war and violence and should instead cultivate the ethos of peace.

  14. All religious leaders must condemn war and promote peace.

To these ends the Forum resolves to establish a permanent Secretariat in Kuala Lumpur to –

IMPLEMENT this Initiative.

OPPOSE policies and programmes that incite war.

SEEK the cooperation of NGOs worldwide to achieve the goals of this Initiative.
