Resolução do Conselho Mundial da Paz de apoio à 4ª Sessão Especial da ONU sobre Desarmamento

 
RESOLUTION
SUPPORT OF 4TH SPECIAL SESSION ON DISARMAMENT
UNITED NATIONS
 
Whereas, the United Nations reports that over US$1 TRILLION DOLLARS are spent
annually worldwide on arms not including the costs of the illegal invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan and current conflicts; and further
 
Whereas, global expenditures amount to two million dollars every minute for war, draining national treasuries creating a crisis in funding for essential social services: health, education, infrastructure, food, shelter,  environment, simple development, etc.;  and further
 
Whereas, the heightened tensions, exploding in civil strife, created by the arms race , have so burdened the undeveloped and developing world, not leaving the developed world untouched,  that hundreds of millions of people are suffering from lack of food and shelter, wandering the earth in search of employment, and nation-states in the South are either unstable or failing, wallowing in debt,  in the main, created by arms purchases; and further
 
Whereas, there has been recognition of the need to assist the impoverished South with sustainable development: i.e. the United Nations Millennium goals for alleviating poverty by 50% by the year 2015 by contributions of 0.7% of gross national product by the developed world , only a few countries have complied; and further
 
Whereas, increased expenditures for the development of new weapons of mass destruction, space weaponry, participation in the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and other areas and the maintenance and expansion of the national militaries have rendered the pledges to contribute for sustainable development of the South as mere empty promises; and further
 
Whereas, previous Special Sessions of the United Nations on Disarmament have inspired increased organization and demonstration by the global peace movement, including the One Million Demonstrators in New York City in 1982, that, in turn, sparked a new level of peace activity against the dangers of nuclear war, and
 
Therefore, the meeting of the Secretariat (Brussels 15th June,2007)of the World Peace Council ,the largest organization of national peace organization in the world, , resolve with the global peace movement to wholeheartedly support efforts of  the General Assembly of the United Nations to convene the 4th Special Session on Disarmament; urge the cooperation and participation of civil   society in the discussions and planning for the Special Session;  and urge the organization of a major public expression of support simultaneously with the Special Session, and
 
Therefore, a copy of this Resolution is to be forwarded to all Heads of State, Secretary-General of the United Nations, all Missions to the United Nations, Working Group for the 4th Special Session on Disarmament, affiliates of World Peace Council and peace organizations globally.
