Having more of the same? No. The future is to be done (El por-venir está por-hacer)

And the citizen’s power will make possible the radical changes that are approaching.

No more oligarchic groups instead of a re-founded United Nations, provided with the necessary technical, personal and financial resources.

No longer strictly monetary assessment and orientation, but political action guided by the "democratic principles" clearly established in 1945 (UNESCO’s Constitution).

An economy no longer based on speculation, productive relocation and war, but in knowledge for a sustainable global development, allowing a decent life for all mankind and not excluding, as now, the 80% of them.

An economy that ensures the equal dignity of all human beings, essential and necessary in all human rights, and takes cares the priorities that everyone should have access: food, water, health, environment, education and peace.

No more exploitation based in outrageous agreements but cooperation.

Not keeping the environment from falling into the oblivion, an ethical irresponsible disdain of invaluable consequences for the future generations.

Never again considering inevitable the daily genocide of abandonment and hunger for more than 60,000 people, while for the safety of the wealthy are invested, in 24 hours, 4 billion dollars in sophisticated weapons and military expenditures, encouraging -what a terrible incongruity!- a "defense culture", of imposition and domain instead of a culture of peace, encounter, reconciliation and alliance.

Especially in potentially irreversible issues, measures should be adopted to ensure the Earth’s habitability. In a few years, the availability of fuels from shale and marine clatrenos will shift the world geo-economics, requiring a large increase in renewable energy to regulate CO2 and gas with “greenhouse effect”.

The future is to be done. The future we desire will emerge from global awareness, global citizenship, with a progressive equity, finally able to express and stop being invisible, silent, obedient.

Finally, the citizens may, in person and in cyberspace, express freely. The voice of citizens will strengthen the current "formal" democracies, which have weakened the State and granted immense power to the multinational corporations.

The future is to be done. But as Martí i Pol has written a beautiful verse, “and by whom, if not by all of us?”.

Let's join hands and voices. Let’s subscribe protests and proposals on social networks.

A great historical turning is approaching.
