Chapter XI     Limits of Global Parliament competences
A working Federation's Constitution is the only way for us all to guarantee essential services, Justice, and protection to every home. Global Parliament is not a World Government or Earth Government. No! It is the Federation of Global Governments. The Global Community offers a more meaningful union in the form of nine or more Global Governments. We serve the people of all nations, all life on Earth. Each Global Government is made more responsible and accountable to the people of member nations within the region where it operates. Essential services to the people of each member nation are now the most important global rights and are protected by the Global Protection Agency (GPA) of each member nation. Global Parliament is an efficient and immediate emergency response to help. The very first step of Global Parliament, and maybe the only one for several decades ahead of us, would be the approval of essential services amongst the participating member nations. The Global Community has researched and developed such services and listed them here. All of them are already in operation on a small scale in the industrialized nations of the world. We want each Global Government to take a larger share of responsibility of the specific region where it operates, and be more accountable to the people of that region. And we want a Global Government to be made of diverses nations. Be compassionate. Each Global Government is obliged to offer Essential Services to the people of its member nations.

We want to continue offering the world this unique perspective of the Global Community. We want Global Parliament Constitution to be the template for the research and development of Global Parliament's Constitution. This requires changes because Global Parliament primary focus is only including a few aspects and are shown here:
   
-   essential services
-   the Judiciary
-   the Global Protection Agency (GPA)
-   Global Ministries

Over the past several decades, the Global Community along with the Federation of Global Governments (Federation), have promoted a just and fair global government. The United Nations (UN) organization does not offer such global service to all Peoples. It is not a government. It is not a democratic institution. It has no power to legislate, protect and offer essential services. There is no Justice possible coming from the UN. The Five Permanents Members are the only rule of law. There are themselves subsidized by corporate rulers, lobbyists with vested interests in keeping things the way they are now. There are no change in sight because they cannot change themselves. We must let go the UN. It is a 20th Century WWII organization that can truly make things work for only 5% of the world nations. Staying with the UN certainly means there will not be a 22nd Century to live for most people on Earth. The world needs a 21st Century organization able to manage Earth and bring hope in every home.

The Global Community organization is the only possible and practical solution to our world. We know how everything work, and we know what to do to make it work for us all.

We do not relate in any way with the United Nations. We are here to replace it. For several decades the Global Community has tried very hard to reform the United Nations. It has become clear that the United Nations promotes a culture of waste, mismanagement and corruption, and that it cannot reform itself. Today, the only logical, most equitable and sustainable alternative, is to replace it with the Global Community .

The Global Movement to Help is the final product of assessment of the work from all Participants of Global Dialogue 2008. It is very important that the Movement be promoted by all Global Citizens. From now on we serve the people of all nations, all life on Earth. Each Global Government is made more responsible and accountable to the people of member nations within the region where it operates. Essential services to the people of each member nation are now the most important global rights on the Scale of Global Rights and are protected by the Global Protection Agency (GPA) of each member nation. The GPA is also a global emergency unit to give help and working with Global Parliament to give a more efficient help. Global Parliament is the place of meeting of all Global Governments and serves all people.

This Movement is described here. First the meaning of the Global Community expression was defined back in 1985.
Global Community expression


All Global Citizens are a part of this Global Community and have accepted the Criteria of Global Citizenship. We are all volunteer soldiers Global Citizenship of the Global Community Peace Movement. Global Community Peace Movement

Global Community Global Movement to Help offers Essential Services to serve the people of all nations, all life on Earth. As a first step to getting help, all nations can and should approve the first three sections on the Scale of Global Rights. Scale of Global Rights The approval would supersede the political and physical borders of participating member nations. The approval would mean politics and justice without borders only concerning those three sections, i.e essential services. The Global Protection Agency (GPA) would have the approval from all member nations to give immediate help, bypassing normal government protocols. Somewhat like an emergency unit but at the global level. That is what those first three sections on the Scale of Global Rights mean. They represent an efficient and immediate emergency response to help.

First, participating member nations need to give their approval to the GPA. The GPA is a global organization much like the World Trade Organization (WTO) for trade between nations, the World Health Organization (WHO) for health, or the European Union, North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), South American Community of Nations (SACON) for trade and economics. The GPA offers an efficient emergency response to help. The GPA is a short term solution, an immediate and efficient response to help. There are also long term solutions. As with the short term solution, the most significant long term solution is also related to the Scale of Global Rights. The Scale was entrenched in Global Parliament Constitution and is thus the fundamental guide to Global Law. Now the Scale of Global Rights is a long term solution and is also a part of the Global Movement to Help of the Global Community. The Scale was designed to help all life on Earth. What would be preferable is that nations unite amongst themselves to help.

Over time, we have seen the creation of the United Nations, the European Union, the South American Community of Nations, and the North American Free Trade Agreement. Except for the UN, these organizations are mainly concerned with trade and economics.

The Global Community offers a more meaningful union in the form of nine or more Global Governments. For instance the South American Community of Nations can be a Global Government by simply accepting Global Parliament Constitution as a way of dealing between member nations. A Global Government is concerned not only with economics and trade, but also with the environment, health, agriculture, energy, food, social, cultural and many other essential aspects.

The Federation of Global Governments is the place of meeting between Global Governments. It a part of Global Parliament.


The very first step of Global Parliament, and maybe the only one for several decades ahead of us, would be the approval of essential services amongst the participating member nations. The Global Community has researched and developed such services and listed them here. All of them are already in operation on a small scale. We want each Global Government to take a larger share of responsibility of the specific region where it operates, and be more accountable to the people of that region. And we want a Global Government to be made of wealthy nations as well as nations in need of help. Be compassionate. Each Global Government is obliged to offer Essential Services to the people of its member nations.

The Federation of Global Governments is now applying more emphasis on the urgent need from the people of all nations to give everyone essential services. The urgent need to give all Global Citizens essential services was made obvious in the past few years after the occurrence of natural disasters, and by global destruction and disasters created by governments and the military. The Global Community has already declared a planetary state of emergency to that effect. The Global Community Peace Movement has declared a planetary state of emergency Planetary state of emergency

Today, earquakes, cyclones and other natural disasters, as well as human made global destruction and disasters, require a rapid and efficient response from the world to help those in needs. We need to be organized and ready to help. We need all nations to be a part of this Global Movement to Help.

In the chaos after the magnitude 7.9 earthquake in China, which made 5 million homeless, many survivors were separated from their families. Burma was hit by a cyclone at the beginning of the month of May, leaving over two million persons in need of emergency relief. Thousands of children and parents have been separated. Nowadays, natural and human made disasters have become more frequent and require a rapid response to help.

The Global Community offers both a short term solution and a long term solution to the people of all nations. Both solutions have been integrated into the Scale of Global Rights Scale of Global Rights, itself a necessary first step which must be approved by all of us.

Global Movement to Help main listing:



What we offer to the people of all nations is to guarantee rights of Sections 1, 2, and 3 on the Scale of Global Rights. Scale of Global Rights Human and Earth rights  Scale of Global Rights Chapter X   of the Federation Constitution is about the  Scale of Human and Earth Rights



We serve all people of the Global Community, the people of all nations, all life on Earth, much like an emergency unit would do on a global level. Concerning Sections 1, 2, and 3, it shall be the Global Community highest priority to guarantee these rights to their respective Member Nations and to have proper legislation and implement and enforce global law as it applies and as shown in Global Parliament Constitution.

Section  1.    Global [ Ecological, environmental, protection of life-support systems ] rights

Section  2.    Primordial human rights

  • safety and security
  • have shelter
  • 'clean' energy
  • a 'clean' and healthy environment
  • drink fresh water
  • breath clean air
  • eat a balance diet
  • basic clothing
  • universal health care and education, and
  • employment for all


Section  3.    The Global [ Ecological, environmental, protection of life-support systems ] rights, and the primordial human rights of future generations



Those are our essential services.



The GPA is a global organization much like the World Trade Organization (WTO) for trade between nations, the World Health Organization (WHO) for health, or the European Union, North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), South American Community of Nations (SACON) for trade and economics. The GPA offers an efficient emergency response to help.



The GPA is a short term solution, an immediate and efficient response to help. There are also long term solutions. As with the short term solution, the most significant long term solution is also related to the Scale of Global Rights. The Scale was entrenched in Global Parliament Constitution and is thus a fundamental guide to Global Law. The work of the Global Community, the global civil society, and the determination of government worldwide, make it possible for everyone to comply with Global Law. Building global communities requires a mean to enforce Global Law for the protection of life on Earth.

Global Civilization http://globalcommunitywebnet.com/GPA/ guides humanity for the building of global communities. This is a great opportunity for globallateralism. Global Law includes legislation covering all essential aspects of human activities. The Global Protection Agency (GPA) will train and lead a global force, bypassing traditional peacekeeping and military bodies such as the United Nations and NATO. The GPA will enforce the law. And that is a long term solution to the planetary state of emergency The Global Community Peace Movement has declared a planetary state of emergency Planetary state of emergency Federation of Global Governments essential services  are offering the Global Movement to Help we offer the Global Community. And that is also how we can stop the global warming of the planet and protect the global life-support systems, thus largely improving the quality of life of the next generations.

As we enact Global Law, we will begin to take on a much deeper kind of global leadership, one that earns more respect than envy and more gratitude than hatred, one that can catapult the whole planet forward into a future where war is no longer thinkable between nation-states and a legitimate and beneficial global government is able to cope with global problems.

Global Rights year one Global Rights year one is a new impetus of the Global Community to educate everyone about the need for a change in thinking and of doing things amongst all nations. We need to realize what is a priority, what is the most important, and what is the least important for our survival. We need to make hard choices. We need a clear vision. We need a common vision. And we must all change! There are many important aspects of our lives we can no longer do, or should never do anymore. They are destructive. Humanity and all life can no longer afford activities that destroy life and the global environment. And there are other activities we must do, certainly thousands of them, to assure the survival of life on Earth. In view of the planetary state of emergency we all must change, we must do things differently to give life on Earth a better survival chance.

The Global Community Global Justice Movement along with the Global Community Peace Movement Global Community Peace Movement have been and continue to be the two major pillars of the Global Movement to Help.

The Global Justice Movement has many inter-related components: monetary, social, economic, environmental, democracy, and peace. The Global Community Global Justice Movement promotes new thinking to benefit all economies and societies the true, fair, democratic and efficient solution to poverty. The Global Community has the productive resources to eliminate poverty and injustice. Humanity is now in the process of developing the democratic and transparent communications infrastructure which can bring this about.Global Community Earth Government  and Global Parliament Constitution


Our approach transcends left-wing/right-wing designations. We see both conventional capitalism and socialism as being two arms of a philosophy which concentrate power in an elite, to the detriment of society as a whole. Reforming the current money system, to empower each and every person, is a first step for justice.

The Global Community Global Justice Movement stands for:

1.     Each person has the right to have warmth, clean air, clean water, food and housing, along with access to a quality health and educational system.

2.     Every person should be respected, equal, free and able to choose their own destiny.

3.     Everyone should be able to fulfill their full emotional, intellectual and spiritual potential.

4.     Every person must respect the rest of creation and take responsibility for preserving the environment including the fauna and flora, all of which are interdependent and share a divine origin with humanity.

5.     The inalienable rights of the individual include the rights of life, liberty, access to productive property, truly free markets, and equal justice before the law.

6.     Global Economic System that is fair for all.

7.     It is the duty of democratic government to secure the results the people want from the transparent management of their public affairs, as far as such results do not infringe on the rights of the individual.

8.     The Global Community Global Peace Movement Global Community Global Peace Movement is about educating ourselves to engage in personal diplomacy in another country. We are given opportunities to meet and listen to some of the leading authorities on such subjects as humanitarian and volunteerism, education, politics, historical, social and cultural perspectives, conflict management, teamwork, world affairs, community involvement, and religion.

9.     Global Justice for all Life on the planet and it is about:

*     establishing respect for human and Earth rights;

*     implementing a global regulatory framework for capitals and corporations that emphasizes global corporate ethics, corporate social responsibility, protection of human and Earth rights, the environment, community and family aspects, safe working conditions, fair wages and sustainable consumption aspects;

*     establishing freshwater and clean air as primordial human rights;

*     practicing tolerance and living together in peace and harmony with one another as neighbours;

*     promoting the economic and social advancement of all peoples;

*     maintaining peace and security in the world by using negotiations and peaceful means;

*     finding unity in diversity with all Life;

*     establishing the respect for the life-support system of the planet;

*     keeping Earth healthy, productive and hospitable for all people and living things, and

*     applying the principle that when there is a need to find a solution to a problem or a concern, a sound solution would be to choose a measure or conduct an action, if possible, which causes reversible damage as opposed to a measure or an action causing an irreversible loss.


The Global Community has shown that corporate-style globalization that ignores the needs of the poor and the environment will no longer be tolerated. The Global Community is joining students, environmentalists, people of faith, human rights activists, and others, in the global struggle against corporate globalization being fought in cities and towns across the world.

We works on issues of global economic and social justice and sustainability. We believe another world is possible and necessary. We envision a world free of corporate domination and crushing debt, particularly in communities of color. We act to expose and change the institutionalized violence wrought by international financial and trade institutions such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization.

Cancel all impoverished country debt to the World Bank and IMF, using the institutions' own resources.

End all World Bank and IMF policies that hinder people's access to food, clean water, shelter, health care, education, and right to organize. (Such "structural adjustment" policies include user fees, privatization, and so-called economic austerity programs).

Stop all World Bank support for socially and environmentally destructive projects such as oil, gas, and mining activities, and all support for projects such as dams that include forced relocation of people.

We are committed to nonviolence and recognizes militarism as a tool used by the global corporate elite to keep money flowing to the privileged few while restricting the rights of people worldwide. We oppose corporate practice which places short-term profits ahead of human dignity, sustainable development and a healthy earth. We stand for the globalization of our rights to speech, thought, religion, assembly, a clean environment, self-determination, freedom from fear and persecution and freedom from poverty.

We stand for the rights of women, children, elderly, affordable health care, strong labor rights and social and economic policies that put people and the environment before profits. We are opposed to the globalization of greed and obscene concentrations of wealth -- we say that another world is possible and necessary.

The Global Community is a non-hierarchical nonviolent organization of individuals and organizations that promotes the arts, conducts workshops, facilitates nonviolent direct actions, educates, organizes, campaigns, empowers, and aims to rip injustice from its roots.

The Global Community movements for Global Peace, Global Justice, and the Global Movement to Help, are committed to making all Global Dialogues and Global Exhibitions safe spaces that are open, accessible, and accepting of all. We welcome everyone to participate in making this happen. If you have any special needs, please let us know.
