Petition Background

War-making is obsolete. In today’s nuclear age it is also suicidal.
The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom is currently campaigning for a Congressional resolution to bring a version of Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution as an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Written by U.S. occupation forces in1946 Article 9 declares that Japan will never again make war. Japan has not made war in 66 years while growing to become an economic giant on the world stage. Not one soldier or civilian lost in combat. Not one war declared in that time. This is a legacy and an example for the world to follow. With Article 9 in our constitution, we and Japan can form a coalition to support the United Nations in abolishing war-making as a political and economic tool.
