Major factors have caused the global crisis which triggered the planetary state of emergency :
*     financial crisis
*     social-economic crisis
*     human activities destroying Earth ecosystems and global life-support systems, and so endangering the future of life on our planet
*     disconnected with reality, unfair and corrupted governance focusing only on finances, trade and consumption

The EU, UN, WTO, IMF, World Bank, FTAA, NAFTA, NATO, and G8 nations, all nations, must operate and do their business as per the Scale of Global Rights.

Global Law

The Global Community has established a planetary biodiversity zone now under the protection of the Global Protection Agency (GPA). We have declared a moratorium on all development in the zone, including all drilling, military testing, and any other destructive uses of the ecosystems.

The planetary biodiversity zone includes :

  • North Pole region
  • South Pole region
  • all oceans
  • all forests
  • all lakes
  • all rivers and connecting streams
  • all wetlands and grasslands
  • living organisms and ecosystems in all of the above

The people of all nations are required to respect the moratorium until global law has been completed to include regulations to be enforced by the GPA.

Federation of Global Governments essential services
are offering the
" Global Movement to Help "

by
Germain Dufour
Spiritual Leader of the Global Community

Summary
As a first step to getting help, all nations can and should approve those 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 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 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 (NAFT), 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 the Global 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 the Global 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. The very first step of the Federation, 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.

 May 1, 2008 Global Rights year one
Letter to the Global Community sent by
Germain Dufour
Spiritual Leader of the Global Community

Global Rights year one is 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 a clear vision. We need a common vision. And we must all change! There are many important aspects of our lives we can 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. And this is what Global Rights year one is about: to establish global fundamentals and a clear vision to follow. Perhaps the Scale of Global Rights represents the strongest pillar of our vision.

Global Community 22 nd Year Anniversary
by Germain Dufour, Spiritual Leader of the Global Community

Twenty two years ago the Global Community organization was created. Today the world is seeing the amazing accomplishments of the Global Community. Back in 1985, I remember having accomplished my first 'soft activism'. It was such a memorable day for me as I actually stood up for a worthy cause: humanity, all life on Earth, and the protection of the global life-support systems. Being a scientist I extended my principles to include standing up for them in public. This was in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. And the day was October 29. I was born again that day! Standing up for what I believed in very strongly! I produced a brochure explaining everything I stood up for. Those who know me can easily imagine how meticulously long the brochure may have been. Then I went to the University of Calgary campus and distributed the brochure to anyone I met. I also posted the brochure on bulletin boards. My first very intense exploration of my own capability of reaching out to others and standing up for workable sound solutions to global problems. That day I became one with myself and all life on Earth. I became 'a Global Community'.
