Manifesto of the 3rd World March for Peace and Nonviolence
Fourteen years after the First World March for Peace and Nonviolence, the reasons that motivated it, far from diminishing, have become stronger. Today, the 3rd World March for Peace and Nonviolence is more necessary than ever.
We live in a world in which dehumanization is growing, where even the United Nations is no longer a reference in the resolution of international conflicts. A world that is bleeding to death in dozens of wars, where the clash of “geopolitical plates” between dominant and emerging powers is affecting civilian populations first and foremost.
With millions of migrants, refugees and environmentally displaced people pushed to defy borders fraught with injustice and death. Where wars and massacres are justified by disputes over increasingly scarce resources.
A world in which the concentration of economic power in the hands of a few has destroyed, even in developed countries, any expectation of a society of prosperity and well-being.
In short, a world in which the justification of violence in the name of “security” has led to the growth of uncontrollable warfare.
For all these reasons, we, the participants of the 3rd World March for Peace and Nonviolence ,“we, the peoples”, want to raise a great global outcry to:
BECAUSE SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE !!!I commit myself to support to the extent of my possibilities and on a voluntary basis this 3rd World March for Peace and Nonviolence that will leave Costa Rica on October 2, 2024 and after circumnavigating the planet will also end in San Jose, Costa Rica on January 5, 2025, seeking to make visible and empower these movements, communities and organizations, in a global convergence of efforts towards these objectives.
