My name is Ameen and this is Caesar we have a global democracy statement. This includes a call to action on October 16, a global call to action that has been adopted by some general assembly and has been endorsed by Noam Chomsky Ben Danishiva Michael Hart and others. We have it in multiple languages. It was provided to Wall St occupation to be endorsed by the general assembly. This was read a few days earlier and people felt good about it. We’re reading it again for this body to endorse it. It has been endorsed by many GAs around the world. It has been endorsed as is, so it’s being presented as is.
“On 15th October, 2011, united in our diversity united for global change we demand global democracy, global governance by the people for the people inspired by our sisters and brothers in Tunis Cairo Benghazi Dara Palestine Israel Spain and Greece. We too call for a regime change. A global regime change. We will not come to global institutions hat in hand begging for policy change. In the words of Ben Yeshiva, the Indian activist, today we demand replacing the G8 with the whole of humanity. The G 7 billion. These are our global Mubarak, our global Assad our global Gaddahfi they are the IMF the WTO global markets multi-national banks the G8 the ECB the UN security council the world bank the basil committee on bank regulation and other undemocratic international institutions. Like Mubarak and Assad these institutions must not be allowed to run people’s lives without their consent. We are all born equal rich or poor woman or man every African and Asian is equal to every European and American. Our global institutions must reflect this or be overturned.”
So this is the statement. It’s before this body. It’s provided to you as it has been received and it has been endorsed as is.
