PROVISIONAL WORLD PARLIAMENT

Press Release by the Provisional World Parliament, 13th Session

On 17 December 2013, the Provisional World Parliament, meeting under the authority of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth, announced its decisions. This press release comes from the government of the emerging Earth Federation.  Delegates from four continents and a number of countries from around the world met together for the past four days within the supporting and empowering framework of the International Conference of Chief Justices of the World, graciously hosted by Dr. Jagdish Gandhi and the City Montessori School of Lucknow. The proceedings were chaired by Rev. N. Mahlawe from South Africa, a Vice-President of the World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA).

The Parliament debated a number of powerful legislative acts that have now entered into the body of provisional World Law already passed by the first twelve sessions of Parliament, laying the foundations for a truly new world system.  These newly passed World Legislative Acts include the following:

1.       A Truth and Reconciliation Act, which creates the funding and administrative mechanisms for establishing Truth and Reconciliation Commissions in every part of the world where such commissions are needed.  These commissions balance the very difficult task of establishing peace along with justice in the face of a past that is often filled with terrible violence and injustice.  Worldwide Truth and Reconciliation Commissions will help provide the foundations for this new world system under the Earth Constitution.

2.      A legislative act addressing police corruption.  This act bans  the use of paid informants by government officials attempting to win cases against suspected lawbreakers.  This ban addresses the widespread corruption, found in courtrooms around the world, in which government agents essentially pay people to give false testimony in order to secure convictions against those who may well be innocent.

3.      A legislative act banning the terrible practice of fracking, which is widely known to destroy the Earth and pollute fresh water supplies wherever it is used for mining operations.

4.      A legislative act protecting the right of people to assemble. This act bans the police dispersal of crowds through dangerous or potentially lethal means, including the use of tear gas.  In many places on Earth, people’s right to assemble is being threatened by police dispersal of crowds gathered to protest injustices.  This act protects our fundamental human right to protest.

5.      A Surveillance Limitations Act.  This act protects our right to privacy and freedom of speech. It addresses the terrible phenomena of worldwide spying on telephone, email, and internet communications that has come to light in recent years through courageous whistleblowers like Edward Snowden of the United States.   Both the Earth Federation Government, and any nations that are members of the Earth Federation, are prohibited from spying on citizens except when there is real suspicion that a crime is being committed and only with the issuance of a warrant by a legitimate authority.

6.      A Transitions Act providing a road map by which nations can become proud members of the Earth Federation. This act specifies the procedures, planning, and timetables that make it easy for nations to join the emerging Earth Federation under Article 17 of the Earth Constitution.

Finally, our guest speaker at the opening session of the Parliament, Mr. M. P. Pandey, Speaker of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly, promised to take our efforts to elect a world parliament for the people of Earth to the U.P. Election Commission, possibly providing for the World Parliament an opportunity to initiate the process of ratification for the Constitution for the Federation of Earth. 

Honored members of the press, this session of the Parliament was a historic and successful step forward for humanity. We are not merely expressing hope that the people of Earth will unite. We are actually uniting them under the Earth Constitution. We are taking concrete steps to transform our world disorder into one of freedom, peace, and justice. This is the work of the Provisional World Parliament.
