March 20 Start: 8 billion steps for the unity of humanity
Mar 12, 2018 — Press release:
The action launched by the Mondialists, "Eight Billion Steps - Towards the Unity of Humanity", is to become a long-term campaign that every citizen of the earth can join. It is about raising awareness that the political unification of humanity in the diversity of its cultures will be the key to tackling the global problems of the future.
The challenges will be enormous. Climate change, overpopulation, scarcity of raw materials and food, warlike conflicts that can always lead to a global fire with weapons of mass destruction - these are just some of the problems that cast their shadows ahead and are already being felt today. It would be utopian to believe that the nation states would be able to cope with this on their own. The global political unification in a democratic world federation is an absolute necessity and could reasonably be achieved by the end of this century.
Launch on March 20, the Day of Unity of Humanity
Currently, more than 7.5 billion people live on Earth. In a few years' time, it will be 8 billion. This is the symbolic background of the campaign, which was conceived for an indefinite period of time. It is scheduled to begin on 20 March. This day was declared "World Unity Day" by the World Citizens' Movement in 2007:
"Twice a year the sun is aligned perpendicular to the equator by the Earth's trajectory. On these days, while at the poles the sun appears in a semicircle on the horizon, light and darkness are equally long everywhere: 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. These are the spring and autumn equinoxes. What if we project this cosmic equality on our lives as citizens? Equality of persons in rights and duties, equality of all persons, despite differences between them, equality before the law..... Several times in recent history, the citizens of the world have proposed to celebrate one or both of these dates as World Citizens' Day, World Unity Day, Action Day against Inequalities, against injustice, against racism and against exclusion, as the day on which all inhabitants of the earth are invited to reflect on the future of mankind and the planet.".
In 2012, the United Nations proclaimed March 20 as "World Happy Day" (Wikipedia). Indeed, the happiness of humanity lies in its unification. All those who want a better future and want to work for it are invited to participate in the "Eight Billion Steps" campaign. More information on the website:
