Pause for Peace daily to Overthrow Oligarchy - the global mobile elites of multinational oil, media, banking, and weaponry companies. In the face of impending nuclear, ecological, and economic annihilation, reclaim democratic sovereignty. Through Citizens’ Assemblies creating rules without rulers, for peace, justice, sustainability, and shared prosperity. 11 am. Local time. Globally. In front of your home. At work. In school. For one potent minute. Stand in silent solemnity. As we begin to sense our collective power, we’ll escalate our action in scope and intensity. So please, join us. Join me. You are far more powerful than you realize. You are the remedy. #PauseForPeace #P4P #OverthrowOligarchy
- All nations fund and support the convening of Rapid Response Citizens’ Assemblies to replace "peace talks" to resolve the conflict between Ukraine & Russia, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia, Palestine & Israel, and all warring nations. National preferenda (non-binary, non-divisive referenda) on the RRCA’s peace proposals.
- All nations fund and support the convening of Global Citizens’ Assemblies (CAs) to propose networked global policy solutions to networked global problems - war, climate breakdown, inequality, etc. National CAs approve, reject or recommend amendments. National Preferenda are to be held in all sovereign nations to vote on Global CA’s policy proposals.
- Quantitative Easing for Democracy (#QE4D). All nations fund a four-day working week Universal Basic Income (UBI) to every adult to spend one day a month learning political literacy at community centers.
We don't need to wait, nor ask permission to transform our world. Let’s start funding Citizens’ Assemblies and make corrupt political systems obsolete.
We are leaning over a precipice of annihilation because of the corrupting, divisive, and dictatorial power that oligarchs hold over all national governments and our lives. We call this phenomenon International Divide and Rule (IDR). Instead of taking responsibility to tackle global threats, nations focus their resources on competing with each other in a geopolitical race to destruction. This competition between nations is weaponised to maintain existing oligarchic power structures in classic divide et impera style.
Global People Power’s vision is for ‘Earth Citizens’ to assume democratic power and responsibility as a diverse human family united in tackling this systemic root cause of threats to all life on earth. We seek to establish Citizens’ Assemblies that create rules without rulers; policies to solve global challenges such as war, climate, and ecological breakdown, economic and social collapse. Earth Citizens take Non-Violent Direct Action to pressure all nations to fund and convene these assemblies, and to allow national citizens to vote on the implementation of the assemblies’ policies via national ‘preferenda’ (non-binary, non-divisive referenda). Policies will be split into two categories, those that can be implemented immediately and unilaterally by nations, and policies that require global cooperative implementation.
We are claiming our Earth Citizenship alongside our national citizenship because we, humanity, have a dual responsibility. Tackling problems at home means taking care of the whole world too. We are taking global responsibility because those who are meant to be, aren't. Together we can overcome archaic systems that are dividing us and killing us by creating new systems that enable us to unite and to thrive.
(“Earth” in Earth Citizen is about connection to physical place, to community, to home. It’s about belonging, whilst simultaneously belonging to the whole living planet. It is not associated with any affiliation to a global government or global jurisdiction. We oppose such initiatives).
