The meeting concluded with the approval of the following resolution.
Whereas the Libertarian Party of Michigan:
Does not believe in or advocate the initiation of force as a means of achieving political or social goals;
Is opposed to war in every form and the indiscriminate suffering it inflicts on combatants and civilians alike;
Is firmly committed to our central premise of non-intervention and peaceful self-determination; now, therefore, be it
Resolved that the Libertarian Party of Michigan:
Condemns the actions of the Russian Federation in Ukraine;
Affirms the sacred right of the People of Ukraine (and all persons everywhere in the world) to defend themselves against aggression;
Does not support the expansion of this conflict nor intervention by the United States;
Does not believe such an expansion of the conflict would be in the interests of the Ukrainian, Russian, or American people, and;
Calls on all parties to instead work toward a ceasefire and a lasting diplomatic solution.
Resolved this 24th day of February, 2022 by the Executive Committee Libertarian Party of Michigan.
