Vital Declaration WHEREAS THE DEFENCE ACT, 1909, AND ITS AMENDMENT, 1910: 1. Introduces into this Dominion the principle of conscription (i.e., compulsory enrolment for military service), which has proved the curse of Europe; 2. Introduces military law and courts-martial in time of peace —courts so constituted as te bo directly opposed te tho spirit and substance of common law and to the spirit and substance of the British Constitution, from which courts there is no appeal; 3. Violates freedom of conscience in basing the claim for exemption on doctrinal and not conscientious grounds; 4. Ignores parental authority and makes criminals of children and young men who have done no wrong. (For the offence of non-registration the penalty is lite-long. It includes the loss of political rights and of all hope cf employment in any Government department, and is expiated by neither line nor imprisonment); 6. While professing te provide for the defence of this country, invites members of the Territorial Forces (youths in some cases only 18 years cf age) to volunteer, in time of peace, to serve abroad at any time during a stated period and on acceptance of their offer gives the Governor power to order them on foreign service—thus possibly forcing a man te participate in a war which his conscience condemns, as a result of a promise rashly made in immature youth; 6. AVill certainly increase the burden of taxation until it becomes, as it is in Europe, intolerable. (As a matter of fact, the Defence vote is already approximating the vote for Education); 7. Will have the, effect of implanting and cultivating the war spirit in the minds of our youth;. 8. Is antagonistic fo the growing peace spirit of the age. which is making for the recognition el the brotherhood of man 9. AVill inevitably tend to a demand /or an increased term of military service and for residence in barracks or camps, which must have—as has been universally proved—a demoralising effect upon the nation 10. Will cause serious interference with the youths' opportunities for technical and higher education 11. Confers powers upon the military authorities which are absolutely destructive ef all democratic institutions and civic freedom 12. Necessitates the presence in Wellington of a large number of Imperial and colonial military officers, who will be in a petition to bring influence to bear upon our legislators and cause a continual demand for an increase of armaments; 13. Allows the permanent force to be use 1 in industrial disputes THE PEOPLE OF NEW ZEALAND ARE URGED TO DEMAND ITS IMMEDI ATE REPEAL. F.L Conference. a LIST OF DELEGATES. OFFICERS. President, P. C.
