At the beginning of the third millennium mankind stands at the crossroads.
On the one hand are the interests of six billion people currently inhabiting
our planet - and of all future generations - who wish to live a dignified
and healthy life in a peaceful world. On the other hand is a small corporate
interest group denying the whole of mankind these basic human rights
for one reason only - financial greed.
In this situation, we, the people of the world, have the choice: we
either continue accepting the yoke of those investment industries forcing
wars and diseases upon us or we liberate ourselves from these burdens
with all peaceful means available and start building a world determined
by the principles of peace, health and social justice.
We, the people of the world, recognize that never before in the course
of history have we been more united to preserve peace, to terminate the
investment 'business with disease' and to bring to justice those who
sacrifice peace and health for corporate gain.
Therefore, we the people from East and West, North and South, from
rich and poor countries have decided to create a world of peace, health
and social justice for ourselves and generations to come.
As our fundamental rights we proclaim:
THE RIGHT TO PEACE. We, the people of the world, are
determined to defend our right to peace with all peaceful means available.
In the age of weapons of mass destruction war is no longer an option
for solving international conflicts. We will make sure that those who
conduct a war without an explicit mandate by international law will be
held responsible and will be brought to justice for their crimes. We
will not rest until they are punished - irrespective of economic or political
consequences - because we recognize that this is the only way to protect
our planet from destruction.
THE RIGHT TO LIFE. We, the people of the world, are
determined to defend our right to life with all peaceful means available.
We will not rest until all factors shortening the life span of people
on our planet are eliminated. We will fight hunger, malnutrition and
other factors already killing millions of inhabitants of our planet each
year including infants and children. We will also terminate the investment ‘business
with disease' as the result of which more people have died prematurely
from preventable diseases than in all wars of mankind put together.
THE RIGHT TO HEALTH. We, the people of the world,
are determined to defend our right to health with all peaceful means
available. We will make sure that the pharmaceutical 'business with disease,'
the deliberate promotion of diseases for corporate gain, is outlawed
worldwide. We will bring to justice those who deliberately promote diseases
and those who withhold life-saving information on natural, non-patentable
therapies. In providing health to our communities and in implementing
national health care programs we will focus on effective and safe, natural
health approaches. The primary goal of any health care strategy is prevention
and eradication of diseases.
THE RIGHT TO SOCIAL JUSTICE. We, the people of the
world, are determined to defend our right to social justice with all
peaceful means available. We no longer accept that two out of three inhabitants
of our planet live in poverty and illiteracy. We will make sure that
the resources of the world are redistributed in a way that provides education
and a dignified life for every citizen of our planet. To finance this
redistribution we will use the financial resources liberated from terminating
the multi-trillion dollar 'business with disease' and from decreasing
We recognize that as a first step to reach these goals those
corporate interest groups promoting war and disease need to be brought
to justice in international courts for sacrificing the lives of millions
of people and for committing other crimes against humanity.
Public exposure and punishment of the representatives of these
corporate interest groups will remove the last obstacle for the people
of the world to terminate the 'Dark Ages of Disease, War and Injustice'
and start building a 'New World of Peace, Health and Social Justice'.
