Not another day of silence!

Tuesday, April 25, 2017



Not one more day of silence allowing the plutocratic groups that have substituted the United Nations, to continue submitting humanity, leading it without compass, short-sighted, obsessed, short-term... to situations of no return.

It is necessary to proceed without
delay to the United Nations’ re-foundation, a democratic and efficient multilateral system that was designed by President Roosevelt. It is the will of people that, conscious of the fact that we are reaching ways of no return, must be expressed in great outcries to stop, before it is too late, the non-sense trajectory we are living, especially on potentially irreversible issues, such as environmental and extreme poverty.

The unacceptable has been accepted... and now, on the edge of the abyss,  it is unavoidable to react: it was accepted that the United Nations were substituted by the oligarchic groups of the G6, G7, G8, G20... so that global governance (193 countries) was entrusted to six, seven, eight, twenty prosperous countries...

It was accepted that ethical and democratic values ​​and referents would be substituted by stock markets... It was accepted that the immediate benefits prevailed over the indispensable prospective vision ... The production delocalisation was accepted -"for greed and irresponsibility", in the words of President Obama-, which does not take into account working conditions and human rights ... And it was accepted that, in order to "comply with the debt", development aid would be reduced until it disappeared ... And it was accepted that the European Union, strictly monetary, did not fulfill its duties with the refugees ... And lies were accepted for the invasion of Iraq -"weapons of mass destruction"-, the origin of so many debacles and terrorism. And it was accepted that there was no money for the Millennium Development Objectives...

And continues accepting that thousands of human beings die every day from starvation -most of them girls and boys from one to five years of age- while 4 billion dollars are spent on arms and military expenditures. And it has been accepted that it will not be granted 10% of this huge sum for development aid, as was so well proposed by the International Peace Bureau of Geneva in its great (and ignored) "Disarmament for Development" campaign...

And it is still accepted -as a result of all of the above- that the dangerous social gaps do not stop increasing... And it was accepted that "markets" appointed the governments of Italy and Greece, the cradle of democracy, without elections. And it is accepted -we must remember what happened in the years 1935-1938!- that fascism, fanaticism, the prevalence of cultures and ethnic groups over others reappear ...
We have just found ourselves concerned on the results of the European Union's "big four" session -France, Germany, Italy and Spain- preparing the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome: when we could expect them to decide, as they had established in Lisbon in year 2000, to pass through a human-based and sustainable global development economy based on knowledge ... and announcing drastic actions to shelter refugees and migrants, rapidly increasing development aid ... the only thing that comes to their mind is to strongly increase the “defence and security” costs!

On March 17 and 18, the G20 met in Baden-Baden (Germany) ... and, in order not to displease the American President -as it had happened years ago with Reagan and then with the Bush- the terms of the economic guidelines were moderated, to make them "slightly" (only slightly!) protectionists ... and it was eliminated -what a shame, what nonsense!- to make mention of the Paris Agreements on Climate, of compulsory compliance, if the present generations do not want to appear as the protagonists of the greater historical mistake that could be committed concerning the habitability of Earth and the  future generations...

And silence! ... With great diligence, the Minister of Defense of Spain, has rushed to visit the Pentagon to assure the closest collaborators of the unusual President Trump that we will buy them a lot of war devices ...

And silence.

And the "markets", since the eighties have the reins of the common destiny in their hands, also perfectly manage the "weapons of mass distraction", in a very accurate version of the very correct Soledad Gallego Díaz. Yes, they change a considerable number of citizens into impassive spectators, just experts in football and careers who due to disaffection to politics and politicians do not exercise the resistance that now cannot be postponed.

Not another day of silence! Now we can express ourselves. Now we can obtain great popular outcries.

Let's raise the voice!  
Otherwise, crime of silence.
