Manifest of the World March

Ten years after the First World March for Peace and Nonviolence, the reasons that motivated her, far from being reduced, have been strengthened. We live in a world where authoritarian unilateralism grows. The foundational role of the United Nations in resolving international conflicts is losing 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 environmentally displaced people who are forced to challenge borders full of injustice and death. Where it is intended to justify wars and massacres for 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 indignation that are generated end up manipulating 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 military 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 global death club with nuclear arsenals now in the hands of the US, Russia, China, United Kingdom, France, Israel, India, Pakistan and the Republic of Korea. All this explains why the Atomic Scientists Committee places the current index (Doomsday Clock) as the greatest global risk lived from the Crisis of the Missiles of Cuba in 1962.

It is planned to leave Madrid on October 2 of 2019 to ring all the continents, until March 8 of the 2020 that will conclude in Madrid.
