The Global Community 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.
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. 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.
7. The 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.
8. 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
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 movement for Global Justice is 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.

Earth Treatise: Living for the Earth
Love, Protect, Restore and Kill?! for Gaia
Earth Meanders by Dr. Glen Barry
June 7, 2006
The Earth is both sacred and dying. There is no better way to
live your life than committing to serving Gaia. As the sum total
of the global ecosystem and all biological life, Gaia is the
giver of life and worthy of service, worship and if need be
revolutionary violence. It is not suggested you become an
aesthete militant monk, but rather you do something special with
your life. Please consider perfectly achievable lifestyle
changes, which simplify and give meaning to your life, in order
to align your existence with the needs of the Earth and future
humanity. I conclude by considering whether there must be
killing to save the Earth.
Live Simply, Joyfully and Well
Live simply, laugh often and love much. Marvel at and be part of
the natural world. Study the sky and stars, learn to identify
plants and their uses, and watch ants work and play. Find a
special intact ecological place to do all you can to protect.
Research, organize, agitate and grow the Earth movement to
protect your special place, resist ecocide and achieve global
ecological sustainability. Raise your children simply with love,
respect and discipline; teaching right from wrong and a deep and
enduring love for the Earth.
Live a carbon neutral lifestyle. Have one or, if you must, at
most two children. Consume quality essentials while spurning
false needs. Eat low on the food chain - little or no meat and
organic, local foodstuffs when possible. Avoid all old growth
wood, toxic poisons and false profits. Find a piece of land to
sustain your being while lovingly restoring it to a fully
functional ecosystem. Plant and care for seeds native to your
bioregion. Feel the mud in your toes.
Love, love and then love some more. Seek truth and knowledge and
goodness and justice; valuing ideas, thought and truth rather
than celebrity and more material stuff. Be not afraid as your
death is certain; rather, concern yourself with how you shall
live. When you make mistakes (as you will) get up out of the
mud, clean yourself up, and go on wiser for having lived.
Make love. Work hard at a worthy and sustainable livelihood. And
then make love again. Enjoy drink and herb in moderation except
when you choose to do otherwise. Rejoice at art and sport,
beauty and truth. Feel awe and fear in the wilderness even as
you rejoice at your and human insignificance. Live, breathe and
rejoice at the wonder of creation and then fight like hell to
keep it that way. Be. Be alive. Be free. Be one with the Earth.
Further Ruminations on Earth Revolution
As far as we know the only life exists here on the Earth. From
primordial sea mats magnificent creatures have evolved including
the often violent hairless ape with the opposable thumb. Human
life is utterly dependent upon the Earth's ecosystems. Cessation
of key ecosystem services such as climatic patterns, fish
populations, desertification and many others - which is already
happening and accelerating - will mean mass human suffering and
death on a magnitude never before seen. It is likely that
positive feedbacks as a result of massive and rapid human
impacts will rip Gaia apart, making complex life improbable for
a very long time.
Let me hypothetically comment further upon Earth revolution. As
a last resort when all else has failed, it may be necessary to
make a last stand before it is too late, which means soon. It is
difficult for me to say as one who left the army as a
conscientious objector that in our current unsustainable
situation it may be better to kill some now than allow humanity
to perish forever. Killing to save the Earth and all her beings
is a difficult topic to broach, and I do so not to incite
violence, but out of moral and intellectual responsibility to
consider all options for saving the Earth.
At some point as the world's rainforests, climate, water and
oceans are destroyed for a fast buck - and as all entreaties to
power and the elite are rebuffed - all right minded people have
to at least consider whether they wish to die with or without a
fight and dignity. Have you ever wondered as I have why many
Jewish victims of nazism did not resist when being lead to
slaughter? Will you die as they did? To suggest one would kill
to defeat Hitler but not to save the Earth is morally
You may want to commit yourself to revolutionary action for the
Earth. By joining a leaderless and global Earth insurgency, you
may choose to show love by destroying oil wells, coal plants and
other deadly manifestations of the cancerous growth machine.
Killing evil that is destroying creation, washing your hands,
and returning to tilling and caring for the Earth could make all
the difference between hope and death for the Earth and all her
Become a cog in the wheel of global ecocide and let there be no
compromise in her defense. Embrace non-violence and reject
militarism, but be willing to strategically sabotage, fight and
if absolutely necessary kill. Do not do so needlessly and make
all efforts to not harm innocents.
Be fully cognizant of, and act upon, the incontrovertible truth
that with death looming for the Earth, and extinction for most
of her species including humans, the only hope for a future is
that those entities and their principals driving the Earth's
destruction immediately cease their evil activities. Ideally
this will be achieved willingly through logical discourse,
protest and political processes. Otherwise they may need and
deserve to be destroyed. The selfish actions of these Earth
destroyers - and there are various levels of culpability from
oil executives to SUV owners - is causing global ecological
collapse that will kill widely and indiscriminately, unlike
Earth revolutionaries, making no effort to spare the innocent.
I have come to believe there is no hope or honor in non-violence
at all costs, as the biological foundation of being is destroyed
to fuel industrial society. This is a different battle than that
of Martin Luther King or Gandhi - it is a battle for our very
survival and the habitat required to do so. Fighting violently
for an unknowable god and/or country is vacuous and meaningless.
Fighting for your Earthly home, future descendents and 3.5
billion years of evolution is glorious, meaningful and holy.
The Earth and humanity's future (if there is to be one) is
gentle, just and egalitarian - societies and individuals living
simple, sustainable and meaningful lives. Violence has no place
unless it is in defense of the very foundation of Earth's life -
and after the destroyers have refused to stop despite years of
reasonable requests and mounting evidence of the dire
consequences of their savagery.
Sadly, I do not see a future for the Earth and humanity that
does not include massive violence - either through mayhem as a
grossly unsustainable society and economy collapses, or by Earth
revolutionaries overthrowing the Earth destroyers thereby
averting global ecosystem collapse and ushering in an era of
hope, justice, equity and sustainability.
Align your being with the needs of the Earth, doing all this and
more, and convince others to do likewise, and your children's
children will have a habitat. Do nothing and the Earth and
humanity are finished. Show your love and live as if your life
depends upon the Earth. It does.
