Proposal for UFPJ Strategic Framework or Program Document

--We will work to achieve the prosecution of high officials who are guilty of war crimes, including the supreme crime of aggressive war.--

If we allow future presidents, vice presidents, and top officials to believe there is no penalty for war crimes, we will be making war crimes far more likely. We will be handing human beings absolute power and hoping it doesn't corrupt them.

A grass roots effort is needed, in collaboration with attorney allies. We need to do outreach to prosecutors and to elect better prosecutors at the state and district levels, to do outreach to gold star families, to lobby Congress for a special prosecutor, to lobby the U.S. attorney general for a special prosecutor, to educate the public, to organize and filing mandamus petitions, civil suits, and other law suits that peace groups and individuals can file, to work with allies abroad to use foreign and international mechanisms for justice, to pass resolutions like Brattleboro's and Berkeley's, and to advocate against abuse of the pardon power.
