Patrick Gastaldon started this petition to United Nations and

Truth is a Human right.

When we hear a story that we believe is the truth, we become host of that story. We can infect people with it, and sometimes, it can change our view of the world.
Our entire life we are flooded by informations, it's our way of knowing the world around us. The access to impartial and truthful informations is vital for our decision making and view of the world.

For this reason, the spread of false, exaggerated and misleading informations should be a felony, not any kind of felony but a plain violation of human rights.
Recent history has shown us that manipulation of information can lead to huge changes in world politics, i.e. Brexit, the Trump election, immigration policies etc.
The Cambridge Analytica case is the most apparent on this matter, a group of influential individuals can slowly but surely change the world view of many citizens around the world.

We demand the United Nations to create an international, impartial committee on the spread of false informations and the influence of modern media outlets on world history.

The goal of the committee should be to introduce harsh international regulations on misinformation of any kind, and the creation of guidelines for state legislation on this matter.
The committee should be composed by experts in Sociology, Anthropology, Neuroscience, Economy, Political science, Philosophy, Education, Information technology & A.I and Psychology. No corporate, party or state representatives are allowed to exert any kind of pessure.

The committee should also examine the possibility to change Article 3. of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adding the right to impartial, factual and truthful sources of informations.
