Call to End War and Ecocide Through Good Global Governance

60 years ago the Russell-Einstein Manifesto presented the dreadful alternative caused by nuclear weapons to the world: “Shall we put an end to the human race; or shall mankind renounce war”? The Manifesto also hinted at the root cause of war: “The abolition of war will demand distasteful limitations of national sovereignty.”

Today, the suffering of millions of refugees from wars and climate change indicate the urgent need for policy change on a global scale. We call on all nations to end wars and ecocide by subordinating their external sovereignty to good global governance while retaining their internal autonomy.

We recommend good, people-centered, transparent global governance be politically achieved by effectively reforming the United Nations or by creating a new World Federation of nations.

Please endorse our call here:
