Peace amongst nations means Justice for all.
The Global Community deals with both social justice and global justice together.
The Global Community Global Justice Movement stands for:
1. Each person has the right to have clean air, clean water, food and housing, along with access to a quality health and educational system.
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 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.
Building global communities require understanding of global problems this generation is facing. There are several major problems: conflicts and wars, no tolerance and compassion for one another, world overpopulation, human activities, as population increases the respect and value of a human life is in decline, insufficient protection and prevention for global health, scarcity of resources and drinking water, poverty, Fauna and Flora species disappearing at a fast rate, global warming and global climate change, global pollution, deforestation, permanent lost of the Earth's genetic heritage, and the destruction of the global life-support systems and the eco-systems of the planet. We need to build global communities for all life on the planet. We need to build global communities that will manage themselves with the understanding of the above problems.
Building global communities requires a mean to enforce global law that protects all life on Earth.
The Global Protection Agency will train and lead a global force, bypassing traditional peacekeeping and military bodies such as the United Nations and NATO. This is a great opportunity for globallateralism.
The Global Protection Agency (GPA) is leading a group of people in the world who participate in:
a) peacekeeping or peacemaking mission;
b) creating global ministries for:
1. the policy response to the consequences of the global warming, and
c) enforcing global law;
d) saving the Earth's genetic heritage;
e) keeping the world healthy and at peace;
f) protecting the global life-support systems and the eco-systems of the planet;
g) dealing with the impacts of: global poverty, lack of drinking water and food, global warming and the global climate change, threat to security, conflicts and wars, lack of good quality soil for agriculture, polluted air, water and land, overcrownded cities, more new and old diseases out of control, widespread drugs, human and Earth rights abuses, world overpopulation, and lack of resources;
h) broadening the traditional focus of the security of states to include both the security of people as well as that of the planet.
Global security policies include:
* every person on Earth has a right to a secure existence, and all states have an obligation to protect those rights;
In the past, security was thought as better accomplished through military means. Expanding the military capabilities and forming alliances with other nations were the only way to 'win'. Today wars are unlikely to produce winners. The Global Community is all over the planet. Ethnic groups are everywhere. Some say there are more Italians in Montreal, Canada that there are in Italy. So we would fight our own people? Wars truly make no sense! The world is too crowded and too small nowadays! And weapons too lethal! So security cannot be achieved through the military. The only job the military should be asked to do today is to protect the global life-support systems. These systems have the highest priority on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights and are certainly more important than any of the other rights on the Scale including security. Simply because without life there is no other right possible. Without Oxygen there is no life! Without clean water there is no life! So protect life on Earth at all costs. Wars are the biggest threat to life and the ecosystem of the planet. Primordial human rights come next on the Scale of Human and Earth Rights. Without a shelter life will still exist in some places but is not possible in cold place.
There are many related aspects of the global life-support systems:
* global warming
So security must be achieved by other means than wars. We might as well shelved the war industry from humanity right now and that means phasing out all nuclear, biological, chemical weapons right now. No waiting! That also means having inspectors verifying the phasing out in all nations of the world, and not just in some Middle East country. The nature of global security has changed since the rise of the Global Community. Security used to be about the protection of the state and its boundaries, people, institutions and values from an outside threat. The Global Community emphasizes as a priority the prohibition of external interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states. Today the security of people within the Global Community is just as important as the security of states. Citizens must be secure. The Global Community is just as important as the security and life of citizens and states.
There are many threats to security other than the threats to the global life-support systems and threat caused by weapons of mass destruction and the threats to the sovereignty of a state, and they include:
* the proliferation of conventional small arms
Global security can only be achieved if it can be shared by all peoples and through global co-operation, based on principles as explained in the Global Constitution such as justice, human dignity, and equity for all and for the good of all. All people and states are protected by the Global Community.
In connection between human well-being and a sound environment, Earth rights are ecological rights and the rights that human beings have in protecting their global life-support systems. Earth rights are those rights that demonstrate the connection between human well-being and a sound environment. They include individuals and global communities human rights and the rights to a clean environment, and participation in development decisions. We define ecological rights as those rights of the ecosystem of the Earth beyond human purpose. They are those rights that protect and preserve the ecological heritage of the Earth for future generations. The Earth Court of Justice guarantees ecological rights in its Statute. The Court guarantees also the rights to a safe environment and an environment free from environmental degradation.
Earth rights are the rights to life on Earth.
The Global Protection Agency provides leadership for training of other countries' citizens who would like to participate in peacekeeping and Earth security ... so that we have a ready cadre of people who are trained and equipped and organised and have communications that they can work with each other.
The overall size of the force, or who would pay for it, have not been discussed, but the idea has been raised with countries in Europe and Asia.
As well, there are questions about how many nations would sign up if such a force were under the control of the Global Community .
To act as a global policing force, as the GPA aspires to do, many foundations must be laid, especially regarding the move from wielding power derived from the Global Community to legitimate global leadership.
There are many required characteristics that are prerequisite for legitimate leadership:
1. Legitimate leadership is built upon trust. Those who are led must largely believe that the leader is committed to integrity, honesty, and transparent inquiry into problems. The leader’s actions must align with his words
The defence function of a leader requires that he safeguard the good of the whole by whatever the most skillful means are to accomplish that defence.
While that is not a comprehensive catalog of leadership prerequisites, I do think those few requirements are foundational and relatively unquestionable. Without at least a solid foundation of those requirements, the GPA’s actions among nation-states will remain those of a unilateralist leader rather than a global leader. We will be, and should be, legitimated in the role of a global leader among nation-states and validated as an enforcer of global law. The Global Community offers a few recommendations for actions that would strengthen and legitimate the GPA’s role as a true global leader by gradually creating an international structure that better safeguards the whole than we can ever do now as a unilateralist leader.
The GPA recommendations:
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.
I believe that there is no greater task in the world today than for the Global Community to proceed through the maturation of its leadership, emerging from a more self-interested adolescence as a global leader into a nobler adulthood. We have the potential to act as a torchbearer for a better tomorrow. Do we heed the call? I hope this message has convinced at least a few people that the question of how to proceed with that maturation is of far deeper significance than the reforming of the United Nations. I thus pray that we move with wisdom, grace, clarity, and love in the days, years, and even decades ahead.
The Earth Court of Justice along with the Agency of Global Police have made mandatory that all nations let inspectors verify proper dismantle of weapons facilities. We might as well shelved the war industry from humanity right now and that means phasing out all nuclear, biological, chemical weapons right now. No waiting! And again that also means having inspectors verifying the phasing out in all nations of the world, and not just in some Middle East country and North Korea.
There are many instances where the Earth Court of Justice could be successful in bringing Peace amongst nations and helping to step down the planetary state of emergency.
The Global Community is promoting the settling of disputes between nations through the process of the Earth Court of Justice. Justice for all is what we want. Justice is a universal value for anyone, anywhere, and in any situations. Justice is to be applied to the military as well. Everyone! Every business and organization!
The planetary state of emergency was brought up by the threat of global warming, climate change, blood resources and blood money, disarmament not being a world issue, which have let us with no other alternatives than to assume someone is guilty until proven innnocent. Like President Bush said: a preventive strike is our only alternative from now on. In view of the planetary state of emergency, the Global Community says: for the protection of all life on Earth, a preventive principle is our only alternative. You are guilty until you can prove otherwise.
For instance, ship owners and captains all over the world will have to prove what they have done with their waste oil. It is not up to the Global Community to prove that they have dumped it into the oceans. It is up to the ship Captain and owner(s) to show us their records and prove they have not dumped their waste oils in the ocean. Our oceans and all life will be protected.
Let us show other examples where the Earth Court of Justice can be useful.
A) Anybody found out how the Indian ocean tsunami of 2004 came about?
Some people say it was a Magnitude 5.9 quake that hits off Indonesia. Be is there any proof of that? In the confusion of all, everyone believed what the media was saying. The media was being told information from governments but no one actually can prove it was an earquake that created the tsunami. No one truly knows for sure. There is now another theory. A submarine was testing the use of nuclear war heads by exploding them over the ocean bottom. Actually, it was not the first time that some nations have exploded nuclear war heads in the oceans. Our oceans have been hit several times. Exploding war heads in our oceans is at least as bad as a major oil spill. It is showing barbarism. It is killing the global communities of life in the oceans and destroying the delicate balance of our oceans physical, biological and chemical characteristics that can accelerate the climate change drastically when disturbed. It is showing ignorance and stupidity.
In 2004, the war heads were more destrutive and were over the bottom of the ocean, and that scenario created a tsunami wave. Just a test, said the captain of the submarine that did it.
Of course I have no proof of that. But then the only way you could prove it was truly an earthquake is by conducting an independent forensic investigation of the ocean bottom. So all we can say is that it is more likely that it was a powerful nuclear explosion that created the tsunami. That is the goal of the military, to test its armament and they did. But they were not going to admit it to the world. Gees! Not a good thing to admit that you just killed thousands of people and destroyed communities from several nations of the world. In today's planetary state of emergency, Global Law must be applied. All nations capable of such an extreme action against humanity and all life on Earth must pay for the independent investigation. The Earth Court of Justice will see that Justice is done.
B) Let us investigate another act of extreme violence conducted by the military, the war industry: the melting of the North Pole.
Scientists from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ( IPCC ) were first in establishing scientifically the idea that climate change is a direct result of human activity -- specifically by burning fossil fuels which release greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The international panel wants world governments to initiate a process under the UNFCCC that results in hard caps for emissions. Key developing countries have shown a willingness to take on new commitments. The United States, Russia, and Japan have always been at the forefront of moves to block such targets during the meeting of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali. The US delegation in particular proved a major obstacle to progress. They appeared to operate a wrecking policy, as though determined to derail the whole process. The United States, the world's biggest polluter, was initially opposed to signing up for emission reduction targets. When similar plans were made at Kyoto in 1997, the US refused to ratify the treaty. However, in Bali the US agreed to be included in the reduction plans - the first time it has made such a commitment. We will see if the White House meant anything at all. The fact that there is no agreement about how far to cut emissions means the Bali road map is missing a significant result. Politicians were unable to commit themselves to the recommendations of the scientific community for securing the global life-support systems. For decades the White House has been the strongest opponent to the recommendations from the scientists.
Now those same scientists have observed that the polar cap is melting much faster that predicted. What is truly going on here?
First, let us see who would profit most from the melting of the North Pole and has the capabality of melting the ice.
The Arctic contains an estimated one-quarter of the world’s undiscovered energy resources, that is up to 50 per cent of the Earth’s remaining undiscovered reserves of hydrocarbons are located north of 60°n latitude.
The melting of glaciers in Canada’s Arctic territory and waters have been given increasing attention as areas for the:
Now let us see who could be capable of so much destruction as to melt the North Pole.
In 1947, when there were over one billion Moslims and Arabs opposing the partition of Palestine, suddenly the USA came along to coerce the UN membership and created the State of Israel, an area already overcrowded and politically volatile. How come?! Well! We all know now but fear to say it. It is because the USA wanted the oil and gas of the Middle East to build the biggest military power of the world, with all the WMDs you can ever imagine and more. The mother of all invaders!! Global Community Assessment Centre has estimated that the profit they will make over the years from stealing the oil and gas resources of Iraq will be about 40 trillion dollars. That should keep the American economy from collapsing completely because America's astronomical national debt, mostly due to the military spending. Most Americans will never see the good of the wealth but they will suffer its impacts on their environment and the global warming of the planet. That's right! Just the global warming impacts. This is the proof of how the White House deliberately and strategically from 1947 on, made use of its military to plunder the resources of the Middle East nations. With the approval of the United Nations, of course! They are still trying to make the world believe what they have done was the right thing to do. The next generations of Americans will have to live with the fact that their wealth, their goods, their fake righteousness, their out-of-control lifestyle, their ways of doing things, their prosperous economy, their civilization, all of it, is due to the plundering of Iraq, to blood oil and gas. Blood money! Blood resources is not the way we should be dealing with the rest of the world. Nothing to be proud of! And the fact remains that Israel was the Trojan Horse for the invasion of the Middle East. This is when the American invasion of the Middle East was deliberately started by the White House. A well planned strategic military invasion to plunder the resources of an other nation! Blood oil and gas! Blood money! The UN had no right to create the State of Israel. They forced their way into over one billion Muslims and Arabs and have done ever since. Let us call 'blood oil and gas' the oil and gas produced in a war zone in order to finance an american invasion, and the american economy, or supporting a White House Earth resources exploitation. We could extend the name to 'blood resources' or 'blood Earth resources' to mean any Earth natural resource. Geopolitical boundaries between nations are gradually disappearing to make place to georesources boundaries.
Now, having shown that, what do you think the White House would do just to keep their ways of doing things? How far would they go?! World War III?! Of course they would.
For now the White House is melting the North Pole.
In 1947, the White House has strategically planned the invasion of the Middle East to protect its interests in the oil and gas resources for its military. Dont you think the White House would think twice to melt the North Pole so that by year 2050 the American population would have all the energy reources needed for its military? We know that by 2050 the oil and gas reserves of the Middle East will be practically non-existant. Middle East peak oil has already gone by! So the North Pole is the most likely place to dig. The polar cap is not a problem. We have known for decades that USA military submarines have been exploring under the ice cap of the North Pole. They have already mapped the bottom of the ocean under the ice. Here again the USA military thought ahead! They will need the oil and gas resources, and other primary resources of the North to fuel the war industry of America. Planning stragegically is what the military has been doing ever since 1947. So they do it again. It is very likely that nuclear explosions have started the melting of the polar cap. By 2050, the resources of the North will be made available to the military. Now again there is no proof of this theory. But it is very likely true. For a nation capable of so much destruction in the Middle East and in several other places in the world, melting the North Pole is a minor exercise.
The United States is the only nation that would profit from the melting of the North Pole and is capable of such an extreme action against humanity and all life on Earth. The Earth Court of Justice will see that Justice is done. In view of the planetary state of emergency, the Global Community says: for the protection of all life on Earth, a preventive principle is our only alternative. You are guilty until you can prove otherwise. Global Law must be applied. The United States must pay for the independent investigation.
How did the White House dragged America and Canada into totally illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? How can Canadians let the Canadian culture be militarized by the White House? This minority government in Canada, the war industry, with the media industry, are actually brainwashing the Canadian population with the military option. Like the White House has been doing with the American population for as long as I can remember, the brainwashing process goes as far as feeling right about invading other nations for their resources, for power itself, or for finding a suitable nation that wont mind too much being totally destroyed and millions of people killed. Americans feel right about that. They feel comfortable about invading other nations. They feel that it would be OK to use WMDs, nuclear bombs, over another nation. They did over Japan. They will do it again. The Canadian minority government feel fashionable about invading Afghanistan (the USA invade nations why can't they?). What a shallow thinking! Totally out of sink with the reality of our world, with the planetary state of emergency, and with moral principles.
C) The Global Community is promoting that the creation of a new nation does not have to be at the expenses of human lives and destruction of an entire world. It can and should always be done through a decision made by a higher Court. We are promoting the immediate use of this higher Court, the Earth Court of Justice to hear cases and to prosecute those nations, corporations, communities, individuals who commit crimes such as:
* nation states
The Court will also be asked to decide on
* the formation of a new nation in the world,
The Court decides in accordance with:
* the Scale of Human and Earth Rights,
