ISC Calls for the decision to make the Aerospace and Defence Librarians Group (ADLG) a Special Interest Group within CILIP (the Chartered Institute of library & Information Professionals) to be rescinded

In December of 2007 the Aerospace and Defence Librarians Group (ADLG) became a Special Interest Group with CILIP .

ISC calls for this decision to be rescinded, & will be putting the following motion to the next CILIP agm:-

This agm affirms it commitment to the most fundamental of human rights – the right to life.

This body condemns the arms trade, & all its relate industries as being responsible for the negation of this most fundamental human right.

We view the recent inclusion of The Aerospace and Defence Librarians Group (ADLG) as a Special Interest Group with CILIP to be in opposition to this most fundamental of human rights.

We therefore call for the withdrawal of The Aerospace and Defence Librarians Group (ADLG) as a special Interest Group within CILIP.

&

Directs that CILIP should affiliate itself with the Campaign Against The Arms Trade ( CAAT ).

A motion to this effect will be presented to the next CILIP AGM.
