The United Nations Declaration on Universal Human Rights

      Houston, TX

The United Nations Declaration on Universal Human Rights has existed as a reference document for approximately 62 years despite Universal Human Rights and Dignity are the essences of being. The US should join force with the UN and the global community to advance the document from a Declaration to an International Universal Human Rights binding treaty. Human rights no longer pertain only to individualism, race, ethnicity, gender, economical, social, civil, political, religion and cultural but also to environmental, migration, quality of life, and well being. Therefore, the fundamentals of human rights must evolve and be enforced along with Environment Protection and Rights treaty to adjust to such factors as continuous environment degradation, exploitation, pollution, and toxics; population increase; transformation of societies and people; and global warming and climate change. Obtaining a consensus treaty would be a historic landmark achievement for the global community and critical and urgent for continuing progress on civil rights, human rights, dignity, and well being in this nation and the world. And for bolstering efforts to support and advance global democracy, liberty, civil rights, peace, harmony, inclusiveness, diversity, pluralism, prosperity, security, universal human rights, dignity, and well being worldwide.

      I am signing the petition because our rights as human beings have bee striped away. When our own Senate and House committees authorizes government contractors and private companies to conduct illegal non-consensual human experimentation on it's own citizens and military personnel all human rights have been secretly removed by these hidden senate Appropriations Budgets and authorizations. It goes without stating the hidden DOD Directive 5240.1-R and the many others that were written by our on Department of Defense to authorize the testing and evaluation of weapons for war and biological and chemical technologies such as the continued spraying of chemical trails across our U.S. on nearly every clear day. All 300 plus billion citizens of these United States are being tested on. And now we have 75 Senators authorizing an additional 30,000 new Drones to be developed, tested, and evaluated in our skies....why? We are not at war, yet trillions and trillions are being spent to develop the weapons for war. Please consider also SIGNING THE FOLLOWING PETITION to bring the attention of these actions to our citizens and our Senate as illegal and inhumane acts against its own citizens. https://www.change.org/petitions/unlawful-non-consensual-weapons-testing-on-civilians-and-military-personnel-must-stop
