The IEEE Switzerland Section condemns all aggression and war towards any countries.
We support a diverse co-existence of all people and IEEE members in our Region 8 and world-wide and ask all IEEE members to follow the IEEE code of Ethics.
We ask the global IEEE leadership and the Region 8 leadership to act strongly towards IEEE members who violate the IEEE code of Ethics by expelling them from IEEE, as one of the foremost aims of IEEE is to foster advance in technology for human kind and not to foster aggression, disinformation and war.
