To all world citizens and persons concerned about the future of humanity–

The World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA), organizing agent for the Provisional World Parliament, arranged the  Thirteenth Session of the Provisional World Parliament for Lucknow, India, December 14-16, 2013.  The Parliament was hosted at the World Unity Center by Dr. Jagdish Gandhi and the City Montessori School of Lucknow (CMS) concurrent with the 14th annual International Conference of Chief Justices of the World.

We issued this call in conformance with Article 19 of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth recognizes the legal right of the people of Earth to begin Provisional World Government until such time as the Earth Constitution has been fully ratified under the provisions set forth in Article 17.

The developing Earth Federation Movement (EFM) is expressed in these historic parliaments held in Brighton, England (1982), New Delhi, India (1985), Miami Beach, USA (1987), Barcelona, Spain (1996), Malta (2001), Bangkok, Thailand (March 2003), Chennai, India (December 2003), Lucknow, India (2004), Tripoli, Libya (2006), Lomé, Togo (2007), Nainital, India (2009), and Kolkata, India (2011). The Thirteenth Session in Lucknow was such an historic event: we are building a truly new world order within the shell of the old!!

Today’s world situation calls for a World Parliament to continually build the body of world law, modeling for the rest of the world the way human problems are properly addressed.  It also demands immediate action to establish democratic world government in accordance with the Constitution for the Federation of Earth.  Global climate change continues to create disaster for peoples everywhere and is getting worse each day.  Global weapons of mass destruction continue to threaten the existence of life on Earth.  Depleted uranium weapons used massively in Iraq and Afghanistan continue to poison our planetary environment forever.  Global tyranny under the world’s superpower increases daily.  The resources of the Earth (land, forests, fisheries, clean water) disappear at astonishing rates.  Pollution and toxic waste contaminate ever larger portions of the Earth.  We must continue to act now for the realization of democratic world law.

  The Parliament considers provisional world legislation. It is not a mere conference inviting endless speeches. Details of registration are below. Information will also be posted on these websites: www.worldproblems.net. www.wcpa.biz, www.earthfederation.info, www.radford.edu/gmartin.and www.worldparliament-gov.org.

Both Observers and Delegates are welcome to attend sessions of the Parliament!  Both may participate actively in the proceedings.  Observers register for the Parliament the same as delegates, but are not personal signatories to the Earth Constitution, recognizing it has the highest law for planet Earth.  Delegates have signed the Earth Constitution and may therefore vote on pending legislation before the Parliament.  Both Observers and Delegates may speak, but only Delegates may vote on the bills.   Both are equally welcome at the Parliament.

 

Registration took place with the World Constitution and Parliament Association, 313 Seventh Ave., Radford VA, 24141, USA
