The UFPJ Working Group on Accountability and Prosecution works to achieve accountability and prosecution of high officials guilty of war crimes, including the supreme crime of aggressive war.

It is imperative that we prevent future wars and that we reestablish the rule of law. This can be achieved by prosecuting high officials who are guilty of war crimes, including the supreme crime of aggressive war. If we do not take these steps, we will be permitting a lawless world in which crimes are lamented but the criminals not punished.

Many UFPJ member groups, and others, are working to advance prosecutions and restore checks and balances in our government. The Congress has significantly compromised its powers to legislate, raise and spend money, declare and end wars, approve and reject treaties, approve and reject officials, oversee the government, and impeach those who abuse power. We cannot proceed as a movement within a democracy unless we restore and expand that democracy. A grassroots effort is needed, in collaboration with attorney allies. There is work to be done that is critical and central to preventing future wars. That is the only reason for this work. And that project cannot succeed without this work.
