THE KUALA LUMPUR INITIATIVE TO CRIMINALISE WAR

17 December 2005

The Kuala Lumpur Global Peace Forum of concerned peoples from all five continents are:

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, and

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:



Wars increasingly involve the killing of innocent people and are, therefore, abhorrent and criminal. Killings in war are as criminal as the killings within societies in times of peace. 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. 

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

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

 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.

 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.

 All legislators and all members of Government must affirm their belief in peace and pledge to strive for peace. Political parties all over the world must include peace as one of their principal objectives.

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

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

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

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

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

The design uses the sun and the road as the central elements. The meaning is clearly conveyed as a road to peace, which is the central purpose of the organisation. The primary colour used is a light, bright green that is always associated with news beginnings like that of a young shoot reaching out of to the sun. The dark green provides a balance for the light green to stand out.

The design is one of hope signified by the dominating sun in the distance. However, the effect is kept subdued through the use of soft colours that allow the words to dominate the entire design. The overall energy is positive to influence the flow and mood of the organisation.
