Manifest of the World March

Ten years after the First World March for Peace and Nonviolence, the reasons that motivated it, far from being reduced, have been strengthened. We live in a world in which authoritarian unilateralism grows. The founding role of the United Nations in the resolution of international conflicts loses strength. A world that bleeds into dozens of wars, mostly silenced by misinformation. The ecological crises that the Club of Rome half a century ago With millions of migrants, refugees and displaced people who are pushed to challenge borders full of injustice and death. Where it is tried to justify wars and massacres by disputes of increasingly scarce resources. Where the clash of "geopolitical plates" between dominant and emerging powers raises new and dangerous tensions. A world in which the greed of the richest bankrupt, even in developed countries, any expectation of welfare society. The waves of outrage that are generated end up being manipulated and generating alarming movements of rejection and xenophobia against refugees and immigrants. In short, a world in which the justification of violence, in the name of "security", increases the risk of war escalations of uncontrollable proportions.

El Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, from 1970 , far from opening the way to nuclear disarmament, it has consolidated the power of mass destruction, expanding even the initial club of global death with nuclear arsenals now in the hands of the US, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, France, Israel , India, Pakistan and RPDCorea. All this explains why the Committee of Atomic Scientists places the current index (Doomsday Clock) as the greatest global risk lived from the Crisis of the Missiles of Cuba in 1962.
