Colonialism and the policy of racism impose soul searching questions of human rights, weighing
equally on the conscience of all men and nations of good-will. History amply shows that the
freedom enjoyed by the many becomes fragile when the denial, even to the few, of basic human
rights is tolerated.
Our efforts as free men must be to establish new relationships, devoid of any resentment and
hostility, restored to our belief and faith in ourselves as individuals, dealing on a basis of
equality with other equally free people.
We believe in cooperation and collaborration to promote the cause of international security, the
equality of man and the welfare of mankind.
We believe in the peaceful settlement of all disputes without resorting to force.
All well ordered and modern states can only base themselves upon Courts of Justice and Conduct
of Laws which are just, correct and geared towards the protection of the rights of individuals.
Justice is a product of education.
Man's ingratitude to man is often manifested in willingness to relegate human beings to the
scrapheaps of life when they enter the twilight of their careers and younger brains and
stronger arms are found to replace them.
