Your decision to join the campaign for United Nations Security Council (UNSC) reform is a pledged to uphold the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, and as the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), the number of displaced people today is at its highest ever (a staggering 65.3 million) - surpassing even post-World War II numbers, when the world faced the most devastating event in history.
The unending cycle of global terrorism, violent conflicts and refugee deaths in the most horrifying of circumstances witnessed on the borders of Europe is because the world’s highest security institution has failed to build a world where all can live in security and dignity, proud of who they are and wherever they are.
UNSC suffers from gridlock, political sclerosis and lacks a proactive strategy for conflict prevention because its machinery reflects a world that no longer exists.
UNSC is a legalised caste system and the most significant legacy of colonialism and institutionalised discrimination, with ten rotating Non-Permanent Members who rubber stamp and legitimise the decisions and actions of the five Permanent Veto Members who block motions and prevent multilateralism that is based on democratically-evolved global consensus to proactively end genocide, war crimes, or crimes against humanity.
This status quo is a travesty of Justice, Human Rights and Democratic Values in the light of the primary responsibility of the Security Council in the maintenance of international peace and security.
We are ordinary people from across the world standing up to ensure the UN Security Council is democratic, accountable, efficient, effective, united, and above all, capable of protecting with impartiality the interest of every global citizen irrespective of their colour, nationality, ethnicity, linguistic heritage, sex, gender, religion or age.
Please, lend your voice to this global call for UN reforms.
