“Compelled to rebellion"

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

The second paragraph of the Preamble of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that if you cannot fully exercise the rights that are inherent to them, the human beings "may be compelled to rebellion."

Take care of the "people", to face the great challenges "inventing” solutions.

There is revolution if there is no evolution. If the basic needs of human existence are not satisfied, the voice to cry and the cry to rebellion occur.

And the matter is that:

-Growing inequalities are unacceptable.

-It is unacceptable that thousands and
thousands of people die every day of hunger, most of them children from 1-5 years of age, while are invested in weapons and military expenditures over 3 billion dollars.

-It is unacceptable that, according to OXFAM, 85 persons have the wealth equivalent to half of humanity.

-It is unacceptable that every day the deterioration of the environment increases, affecting the habitability of Earth.

-It is unacceptable that global governance is in the hands of plutocratic groups (G-6, G-7, G-8, G-20).

-It is unacceptable that tax havens are overfilled more than ever instead of being closed.

-It is unacceptable that politics are subordinated to economic interests.

-It is unacceptable that the markets, in a submitted Europe, have come to appoint governments without polls in the cradle of democracy.
-It is unacceptable that competitiveness is not based on knowledge and
innovation but in progressively reduced salaries...

Therefore, it is urgent:

-To establish a democratic multilateralism, the United Nations System re-foundation, giving it the appropriate representation (“We, the peoples...”) and personal, financial and technical resources. This is the great leadership that humanity is expecting.

-The solution is more and better democracy at global, regional and local levels.

-The habitability of Earth is deteriorating and it is urgent to replace an economy of speculation, productive
delocalization and war by a knowledge based economy for a global, sustainable and human development.

- To transit from a culture of imposition, domination and violence to a culture of encounter, reconciliation, peace and alliance.

- A huge public outcry led by the scientific, academic, artistic... communities must rise in order that radical changes take place before points of not return are reached.

-The “new beginning" that the Earth Charter promulgates cannot be delayed.
