Just Foreign Policy

aka JFP   |   Washington, DC   |  http://www.justforeignpolicy.org

Mission

Just Foreign Policy is an independent and non-partisan membership organization dedicated to reforming U.S. foreign policy through coordinating the broad majority of Americans to advocate their interests and values.

Eventually the United States must move towards a more multilateral approach to foreign relations-one that relies less on raw U.S. military and economic power and more on international law and treaties, co-operation, and diplomacy. Our goal is to accelerate this transition through education, organization, and mobilization of concerned citizens.

US Foreign Policy

We educate the public about US foreign policy. We work with activists across the country to promote a foreign policy based on the rule of law and we are dedicated to reforming U.S. foreign policy by mobilizing and organizing the broad majority of Americans who want a foreign policy based on diplomacy, law, and cooperation. We have teamed up with author and long-time New York Times correspondent Stephen Kinzer for a 20-stop, cross-country speaking tour. We promote real diplomacy, meaning direct, unconditional and comprehensive negotiations with Iran as being in the best interest of the majority of Americans, and the people we affect militarily. We educate the public on the dangers of any preemptive military strikes.

The conflict in Yemen has been raging on for nearly half a decade since Saudi Arabia, along with the help of other Gulf powers and the US and UK, intervened in the political situation of the country. The US and UK have readily supplied the Saudi forces despite clear evidence of mass civilian casualties and purposeful starvation of the Yemeni populace akin to genocide.
JFP is dedicated to pressuring lawmakers to end US military involvement in the Saudi-led coalition and to help create leverage for a peaceful conclusion of the conflict.

From JFP President Mark Weisbrot’s 2/2/19 OpEd in the Intercept

Washington has been trying to toppleVenezuela’s government for at least 17 years, but the Trump administration has taken a more openly aggressive tack than its predecessors. Administration officials kicked their efforts into high gear by anointing their chosen successor to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro Moros in advance of any coup d’etat. The 35-year-old Venezuelan member of Congress Juan Guaidó announced he was interim president, and the Trump administration, along with allied governments, immediately recognized him — in accordance with a previously arranged plan.

The War Powers Resolution was passed into law in 1973 to re-affirm the Constitution’s prohibition on war without prior Congressional authorization, to implement procedures to prevent unconstitutional war, and to create tools for ending unconstitutional war. Key provisions of the War Powers Resolution include:

The power of the President to introduce U.S. forces into hostilities, or into situations where hostilities are imminent, are exercised only pursuant to a declaration of war, specific statutory authorization, or an attack on the United States. [Section 2c, restating Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the Constitution.]
In the absence of a declaration of war, in any case in which U.S. forces are introduced into hostilities or into situations where hostilities are imminent, the President must report to Congress within 48 hours the constitutional and legislative authority under which the introduction took place and the estimated scope and duration of the hostilities. [Section 4]
Within sixty days after U.S. forces are introduced into hostilities, the President must end any such use of U.S. forces unless Congress has declared war or enacted a specific authorization for such use of U.S. forces. [Section 5b.]
At any time that U.S. are engaged in hostilities outside the United States without a declaration of war or specific statutory authorization, such forces shall be removed by the President if Congress so directs by concurrent resolution. [Section 5c.]
Any member of the House or Senate can invoke the War Powers Resolution and force a floor vote on ending the unauthorized use of military force, without being blocked by a committee.You can read the full text of the War Powers Resolution here.
