November 2006
Whereas: 
  1. The possibility of a war is looming in the Horn of Africa due to political intervention and ambition by the governments of Ethiopia and Eritrea in the civil war in Somalia.
  2. Many innocent people, mainly women and children, are already displaced and on the move to other neighbouring countries, such as Kenya, which already houses many refugees.

 

Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR ask the Canadian government to collaborate with the African Union to achieve a more humane approach to diplomacy in the Horn of Africa and to use unilateral, bilateral, regional and multilateral means to apply pressure on:

  1. The Ethiopian government to withdraw its soldiers from Somalia and to refrain from further escalating the tension by dragging people into war.
  2. The Eritrean government to stop trying to wage their conflict with Ethiopia in Somalia.
