Global Appeal For Peace; People Of The World Unite

| Organize!, Slider

This is a new initiative to create a worldwide network of people and organizations that will work together to oppose the lawless actions of the United States, and any country that acts similarly, such as interference in the politics of other countries through open and covert regime change operations, the imposition of unilateral coercive economic measures (aka sanctions) that are contributing to the deaths of tens of thousands of people, and threats of aggression or outright military attacks.

All of the above violate the founding charter of the United Nations, yet neither the United Nations nor its International Court of Justice have been effective in holding the United States accountable for its actions. No one country or one movement has the power alone to hold the United States accountable, but together we can make a difference.

Last July, representatives of the Non-Aligned Movement, which consists of over 120 countries, met in Caracas Venezuela and adopted the Caracas Political Declaration, which recognized the “urgent need to Uphold International Law for the Promotion and Consolidation of Peace, and decided, in line with our determination to enhance the Movement’s status and role as an anti-war peace-loving force.” The Declaration contains twelve affirmations that are tools for peace such as respect for international law, respect for sovereignty of nations, and the use of peaceful methods of conflict resolution and that oppose unilateral coercive measures and threats of force. The Declaration expresses support for the founding charter of the United Nations and use of the International Court of Justice.

The Global Appeal for Peace seeks to build a popular movement that also supports peace and respect for sovereignty and international law and opposes acts of aggression whether economic, military or otherwise. Signing on to the campaign is a first step in building that movement. The popular movement will document and educate about the impacts of illegal acts, take action in solidarity to oppose such acts and provide material support for those who are harmed.

The world is changing, and must change if we are to resolve the many life-threatening crises we face. The United States Empire is waning, but it is demonstrating that it will not fade peacefully. It is up to us to build solidarity for actions that guide us through this next phase of our existence in ways that bring the least harm.

Since 1945, the Charter of the United Nations has been the most important contract for relations between the nation-states of the world – the very foundation of international law. Today, however, international law and the structure of a rules-based order that the UN Charter defines are in grave danger.

During the Cold War, international law faced many difficult challenges. Throughout that time, a whole series of destructive military conflicts could not be prevented, while in other cases, the UN was able to mediate or de-escalate them.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, there was hope that peace and international law would prevail, but instead, the UN Charter was further disregarded.

From the beginning of the 21st century until today, with the dramatic increase of extrajudicial military interventions that clearly contradicted international law, the erosion of the UN Charter has accelerated and the basic principles of non-interference and non-aggression are now openly and brazenly ignored.

Due to this dangerous deterioration of the rule of law, on February 14, 2019, representatives of numerous UN member states gave a press conference at the UN led by the Venezuelan Foreign Minister, Jorge Arreaza, stating that this is the moment to ratify, confirm and defend the peace and sovereignty of nations and the UN Charter.

Between July 20 and 21, 2019, Venezuela hosted the Ministerial Meeting of NAM, the Non-Aligned Movement. Founded in 1961 NAM is the second largest multilateral body in the world after the UN, and it is an organization of 120 member states that advocates the strengthening of international security and self-determination, while rejecting interference in the internal affairs of other countries. NAM ultimately adopted a declaration reaffirming the principles of the press conference at the UN led by the Venezuelan Foreign Minister Arreaza on February 14, 2019.

This declaration includes respect for the fundamental rights and freedoms for all, regardless of the race, sex, language or religion. The declaration not only applies to non-interference in Venezuela, but also to all other nations facing multiple threats, illegal sanctions and destabilization throughout the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean.

This declaration particularly addresses the dangerous escalation of tensions, threats, trade wars and sanctions against Russia, China and Iran. We realize that the erosion of international law and multilateral systems will also undermine humanity’s efforts to prevent catastrophic climate change.

    Strength in numbers! Maybe they could organize a BDS movement against countries that blatantly violate international law.

  • Greeley Miklashek

    Neo-liberal pablum and my mouth is already too dry. Too many humans using too many resources and producing too much pollution, as well as endless wars. War is always the result of overpopulation, as is “senseless” gun violence, domestic abuse, childhood abuse, elder abuse, etc. Wake the hell up! Stress R Us

  • Like the good ol’ US of A?

    Shocking! Admit that there’s a Global Higher Power that can tell the the USA what to do?

    Them’s ‘krispy-critter’ words, there, bucko! /s

  • Steven Berge

    History has shown that wars are pretty much about making rich people richer. During WW2, many of our top corporations continued to do business with the nazis. If you or I did it, it would be treason though. But there definitely are too many people for the earth to support under our current lifestyle.

  • Steven Berge

    Not sure what you mean. You mean the transnational mega corporations being the higher power that tells the u.s. what to do? That does seem to be our system.

  • Jon

    Splendid idea!

  • Steven Gaylord

    Alexander Hamilton leader of the Federalists Party of mostly industry, bankers, lawyers, etc., was a suspected Rothschild agent and it was Hamilton and friends that covertly threw our original constitution, one that had served this young country well (The Articles Of Confederation For A Perpetual Union) out the window in this nation’s one and only Constitutional Convention. Many of our founding fathers knew that Europe’s wars were the creation of the Rothschilds effort of building an empire. Sadly, the constitution was wtitten in a way that would, over time allow the type of subverted government we have today. Hamilton was a traitor to the new republic by waiting til Jefferson, Adams, and Franklin were in Europe on business of State. Again, the Constitutional Convention of 1787 was not to tune up our original Constitution and 5 or 6 of the representatives when they realised what had happened walked out in disgust of this travesty.

    Dr Rima Labow, world renown physician reported 15 years ago on a statement made by a wife of one of these NWO cretins. While preparing this woman’s chart, this woman said, “It won’t be long now.” Dr Rima turned and said, “What are you saying?” Woman: “It won’t be long before we rid ourselves of the useless users of precious resources.”

    Do you understand the implications of this comment? Research the Georgia Guidestones and pay attention to the first guide. No matter the lyrical language; it’s about the genocide of nearly 600 billion lives and these people don’t give a damn about the environment or you or our families. Kapish?

    Your amazing grasp of the history of our nation is commendable and informative, except for us skeptics. I’m a retired physician and stress researcher, author of “Stress R Us” on Amazon Books. When too many mammals are compressed by overpopulation, “population density stress” ensues and long evolved neuro-endocrine mechanisms engage to reduce that population and realign it with the natural resources in its environment. This includes, according to my research, all human “diseases of civilization” (our top ten killers).

    Initially, the expanding numbers and our natural tendency to form status/dominance hierarchies create pyramids of power wielding top-down social structures. Eventually, these structures become too massive to sustain themselves without utterly depleting the natural environment and the whole thing collapses. THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW, from a purely biological/population science point of view. Mother Nature is attempting to restore Her ecosystem to a state of sustainable balance for a diverse panoply of species, just like the petition I just signed is attempting to restore a balance of power among nations.

    Unfortunately for this failed initiative, we are currently 3,000 times more than original long sustained primordial human population living in harmony with the rest of the natural world and sustained by their fellow 50-150 clan/band members. Comprende’ vu?

    Only a worldwide voluntary movement for one-child or no child “families” (our natural social structure being the clan/band) can possibly prevent an imminent collapse of the human species and the biosphere, whether through the agency of population density stress, agricultural collapse, or climate catastrophe, but likely from all of the above. The America you know so much about numbered less than 4M European refugees and less than 2M Natives. Today, we are 325M, and the poorer nations of the 3rd world are producing 230,000 (net) new humans daily.

    Time to wake the hell up and address the problem at its source: too many humans using too many natural resources and producing too much pollution. Verstehen Sie? Stress R Us

  • The crux of the problem, to the extent that there is overpopulation at all, is contained in your closing qualifier–“under our current lifestyle.” There’s a lot to unpack there.

  • Aw, now you’re talking about spooks and goblins, and things that go ‘bump!’ in the night! Palestine was taken over by the targeted immigration of Zionist Jewish people. The world’s ‘Powers That Be’ of the time essentially backed that takeover.

    Now, a surprisingly small number of living, breathing people control those transnational mega-corporations, and how is it that among nearly 7 billion humans, these are the ones whose whims determine life and death of an entire planet?

    Kevin:

    When this Disguised Global Crony Capitalist Empire switches from using its ‘media/propaganda’ sector of the Empire to its ‘military/intelligence’ sector, things will get rougher pretty fast.

    Seems to me that Emperor Trump is justifiably nervous about the Disguised Global Crony Capitalist Empire very likely wanting to switch horses during this month of August (with the “Guns of August”) — and anyone else who is likely to fire a “Shout (not shot) heard round the world” for a people’s peaceful “Political/economic & social Revolution Against Empire” [Justin du Rivage]

    There are many more stressors on populations, due to war and poorly designed economic mechanisms. There are reputable studies that say India could support twice her current population, if all agricultural production were regenerative, diverse, small scale. This ancient style of production also produces a wonderful, diverse ecosystem for human populations, not crowded into cities and subject to consequent pathologies.

  • Alan MacDonald

    While the Republican Party is more obviously under the full control of this Disguised Global Crony Capitalist Empire — which is only HQed in, and merely ‘poses’ as, our former country — most of the Democratic Party’s candidates are dangerously naive regarding the structure and effectiveness of this Empire’s seven sectored powers of deceit, or even the nature of the first sickening cell of this cancer metastasizing (not on the presidency, as with Nixon) but on our entire “body politic”, as Earl Shorris wrote in his dying article in “Harper’s” (December 2011) “American Vespers, The ebbing of the body politic”:

    IMHO, within months, not years, the equivalent to the Nazi Empire’s SA, SS, etc. will be the primary and ‘go to’ agencies of domestic militaristic/intelligence sectors of this 7 sectored Disguised Global Crony Capitalist Empire’s power structure at the DHS, ICE, et al. will be rolling-up the tow trucks with wire rope nooses in a neighborhood near you, your kids, or grand-kids:

    Abstract : This report summarizes the discussions at a seminar organized and hosted by the RAND Corporation at which a group of acting and former senior government and law enforcement officials, practitioners, and experts examined domestic intelligence operations and information sharing as these relate to terrorist threats. The collective experience of the participants spanned the breadth of the homeland security apparatus. The participants included officials who have served or are serving in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Department of Defense (DoD), state and local law enforcement agencies, first-responder organizations, and state-level homeland security agencies. A similar group met three years ago to discuss lessons learned from avoiding terrorist attacks at home, the role of DHS’s Bureau of Intelligence and Analysis, and the value and focus of fusion centers. One of the goals of the meeting reported here was to measure how much progress was being made (or not made, as the case may be) in several critical areas of homeland security. The seminar was conducted within RAND’s continuing program of self-initiated research. Support for such research is provided, in part, by donors and by the independent research and development provisions of RAND s contracts for the operation of its U.S. Department of Defense federally funded research and development centers.

    Kevin, One is tempted to say “cui bono” (Who benefits), but this is “quid enim prodest” (What for profits).

    The ‘good news’ is that the people in Russia and China are revolting against Empire in their own countries.

    The bad news is that the nominal HQ (and hidden nature of) this real Disguised Global Crony Capitalist EMPIRE is right here in our formerly ‘promising’ and sometimes progressive country (PKA) America.

    As far as these conspiracy realities of Jeffrey Epstein’s death are concerned — regarding whether Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, any number of powerful billionaires, or even faux-Emperor Trump himself, were benefitted by Epstein’s ‘passing/snuffing’ — Trump and the others are just individual people whose crimes might go to the grave with Jeff — Trump is, as has so often been said, “just a symptom” of the ‘system’.

    The silencing of Empstein was done to ‘cover-up’ this whole ‘system’ of this Disguised Global Crony Capitalist EMPIRE itself — not just the latest players within the metastasizing cancer of this first effectively-Disguised, truly-Global, illegally-Crony, and Capitalist-fueled EMPIRE!

    This is why — No new ‘democracy party’ candidate should be voted into office — unless and until he/she clearly ‘comes-out’ and articulates their position and peaceful Revolutionary posture to be 100% Against EMPIRE!

    I just sent this comment on Hong Kong (and the world) to the NY “Times” just
    this morning “To Understand Hong Kong, Don’t Think About Tiananmen” —

    “Memories of the 1989 crackdown in Beijing loom large. That’s
    understandable, but misleading.”

    By Ilaria Maria Sala

    Yes, Ilaria, “Don’t Think About Tiananmen” —
    think about the aborted Second American “Revolution Against Empire” in
    1968 — and about the coming peaceful & globalized “Revolution
    Against Empire”.

    Chief Joseph 1877 “Hear me, my chiefs! I am tired. My heart is
    sick and sad. From where the sun now stands I will fight no more
    forever.”

    Joseph and his Nez Perce people in Oregon allied with the Lakota
    people, attempted the survive within the Northwest Territories and
    Canada.

    Chief Joseph was finally moved to the Colville Indian Reservation in Washington, where he died in 1904.

    Along with this comment that I wrote over two decades ago:

    “Fighter pilots have a saying that, “speed is life”. But, for all the
    rest of us, “inclusiveness is life” — and tribalism is death by the
    oldest lie of empire.

    Racism is another deadly old lie of empire, as is aggressively fundamentalist religion.

    Nationalism is a somewhat newer lie of empire, proving particularly deadly in the 20th century.

    While, economic ideology is the newest, and current, lie of empire (which is causing our economic and environmental collapse).

    But all the lies and deceptions of “empire-thinking” lead
    ineluctably to the very same grave — so choose your empire poison,
    stupidly. Or choose your inclusiveness, wisely.”

    And ended by saying only that:

    “There are only two levers in the voting booth — one labeled democracy and the other labeled Empire.

    The ironic and oxymoronic labeling of “Citizens United” by an
    un-Supreme Court — which should accurately have been named “Corporate
    Power & Money United”.

    Although the “Times” has previously published my comment of
    two decades ago — the “Times” somehow didn’t want to publish the whole
    thing together?

    It’s sad to see that uman animals still don’t get it! We can create trillions of organizations, they won’t make a difference.

    Kevin, do you know WTHell happened to that great site resistandprotest — which ended in 2018??

    Do you know of any similar sites to locate demonstration, march, and protest events/actions by: Issue, Date, Location/State, etc??

    Is anyone thinking, planning, building such a valuable tool for late 2019 into the critical 2020??
