SRRT Resolutions 1980: Information on Disarmament and Conflict Solving

Information on Disarmament and Conflict Solving

Adopted at 1980 Annual Conference

Whereas in a democracy, decision-making information is essential,

And, whereas the horror of a nuclear holocaust is universally acknowledged,

And, whereas today, the United States and other nations possess more than 50,000 nuclear weapons and continue to build them,

And, whereas in the present complex world situation managed information in press and television coverage of world events is dangerous,

Therefore, be it resolved, that librarians should make available and readily accessible information on possibilities for disarmament and alternative ways of solving conflict.
