War and Peace at the UN

In 1961, Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld’s plane, which wanted to establish a UN right of interference in Katanga (Congo), crashed. The square in front of the General Secretariat in New York still bears his name.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/jan/12/former-raf-pilot-shot-down-un-chief-dag-hammarskjold-1961-plane

http://www.un.org/depts/dhl/dag/time1960.htm

The project to establish a right of interference falls through. This means that the UN cannot intervene when a conflict occurs within a country. It can only intervene when one country declares war on another.
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paix#Paix_international_international

The UN is therefore not intervening, or too late, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Chechnya or Syria.
https://www.monde-diplomatique.fr/mav/49/VIDAL/55555

In cases such as Haiti or East Timor, the UN intervenes when it is an internal conflict. This is because there is no commercial interest that puts pressure on the presidents of the USA, France, Russia, China and the United Kingdom. This is important because they are the ones who are part of the security council.
https://www.cairn.info/revue-pouvoirs-2004-2-page-111.htm

Bernard Kouchner relaunches the idea of the UN’s right of interference. He has not enough support and the idea falls through again.
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Kouchner#Devoir_d’ing%C3%A9rence

Several conflicts erupt without the UN intervening or, on the contrary, making the situation worse. This makes the institution less credible. Horrible massacres such as in Sebrenica or Aleppo are taking place.

So why do I still have confidence and why do I have my hopes for the UN?

Since the creation of the UN, the risk of dying from violent aggression has collapsed. The number of countries that have declared war to another has also fallen. The number of injured, maimed and dead is much lower in internal conflicts than in conflicts between countries.

It is a fact that peace has progressed thanks to the UN: https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/battle-related-deaths-in-state-based-conflicts-since-1946-by-world-region

The very idea of the duty of interference is gradually gaining ground in the face of state sovereignty. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Souverainet%C3%A9#Les_limites_%C3%A0_la_souverainet%C3%A9_issues_of_intergovernmental_organizations

But the UN does much more for peace, helping people to live better.

The results on child labour, slavery and women’s rights are staggering. No one can deny the effectiveness of WHO, which has been directly involved in the eradication of certain diseases. Who could criticize UNICEF?

The introduction of indicators has served as a lever for States to face up to their real actions, and not those of their propaganda.

The UN is effective. The UN is still in its infancy.

Some are frustrated because they do not intervene in internal conflicts; let us mobilize to ask for interference!

Let us also ask the institution to measure the progress of democracy through a popular initiative referendum indicator (e.g. how many there have been, results respected): https://sdg-tracker.org

The current UN Secretary General is a man of courage who fought against the Salazar dictatorship in Portugal. He will surely listen to the requests made to him. With popular support, it will be easier for him to convince the powerful ones: http://inthesetimes.com/article/19820/united-nations-secretary-general-antonio-guterres-refugees-multiculturalism

Giving priority to peace also means making better use of public money by freeing the institutions from lobbies which press for their commercial interests, before peace is established: https://foreignpolicy.com/2018/09/24/peacekeeping-cant-be-done-on-the-cheap-united-nations-secretary-general-antonio-guterres

http://www.climatechangenews.com/2018/09/10/secretary-general-throw-entire-un-fight-suicidal-emissions

It is very important for the UN to have people who support them. We are not the only ones. More and more groups around the world are pushing to help bring about this popular referendum project in the face of the increasingly autocratic trend of “liberal democracies”. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is concerned about these issues.

V-DEM is a department of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. It officially provides indicators and statistics for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 16 (related to peace, justice and strong institutions).

The V-DEM Annual Report 2017: https://www.v-dem.net/media/filer_public/91/14/9114ff4a-357e-4296-911a-6bb57bcc6827/v-dem_annualreport2017.pdf

The UN has already collaborated in 2015 with the V-DEM cabinet to consider the measurement of the referendum on popular initiative. V-DEM provided statistics for the SDG in 2015 in a very technical report: https://core.ac.uk/download/pdf/43561144.pdf

This index measures:

(1) the ease with which each type of popular vote can be initiated and approved, and

(2) the importance of this vote (if approved).

The ease of initiation is measured by:

(a) the existence of a process of direct democracy,

(b) the number of signatures required; and

© the time limits for collecting signatures.

The ease of approval is measured by the quorums relating to domain names in :

(a) participation,

(b) approval,

© the supermajority, and

(d) a majority of the district.

With regard to the importance of the vote, it examines its decisive nature (whether the decision is binding or not) and the threatening capacity of direct democracy mechanisms at the initiative of citizens, measured by the frequency with which direct popular votes have been used and approved in the past. Finally, the study tests the validity of the new measure, discussing its strengths and limitations.

The next revision of the indicators of SDG 16 (Peaceful and inclusive societies) will be in July 2019 with the opportunity to include the direct democracy indicator. If the project does not pass, the next chance to ask for a referendum on a citizens’ initiative at the UN will be in 2030.

A helping hand – Call for the pursuit of the fight

Dear promoters of direct democracy, from all countries,

First of all, congratulations to those who continue the fight in the field and from their places, each according to their means. A thought also for all the victims of violence, whatever their side.

Many good actions such as boycotts, road toll lifts, blockages of the most powerful hypermarkets and extraordinary coordination without a leader in power. We managed to make them shiver. The people are regaining their rights effectively.

On the other hand, there are also far too many demonstrators in the city centres and in the places of power. For my part, I understand the latter, but I think that unfortunately this is falling into a trap. The State is a fuse box, it is there to take the blows in the place of the owners of multinational companies (e. g. Total, Auchan, Carrefour, Vinci) who have the reality of power in most countries of the world. Head of states and ministers draw anger at them with provocations. So, we march through the city, we take prefectures and ministries. For what purpose? What is the cost for those who fall victim to the many police officers still loyal to power? Where’s the lever? The damage will be repaired with our taxes, nothing more. The real perpetrators of state corruption are even less concerned. These actions allow them to live normally.

Political power is a fuse box. What will happen when the head of state or the ruling party, having focused all the hatred on him, resigns, self-dissolves, followed by elections to choose the next fuse? Months lost, false hopes for change and a loss of momentum in the struggles.

This message is a call to focus on actions that can lead the government’s financiers to ask their elected puppets to accept our demand to adopt the referendum on popular initiative in the constitution. Here are some of the proposals:

– Continue to lift road tolls.

– Block as much as possible access to the country’s two or three largest hypermarkets stores.

– Advocate for prosecutors who are independent of the government and locally elected. The crimes of the financiers in power, elected officials and their bullies must no longer be dismissed without consequences. With the ability of prosecutors to seize Interpol, these often highly mobile white-collar criminals will no longer have a country to hide and enjoy their money.

– Demand an amnesty law for whistle-blowers. Yes, many finance workers have been involved in corruption, our impoverishment and people poisoning, but we have everything to gain from those who want to defect and expose the crimes of their employers or colleagues. We have seen, for example, with the Panama Papers, implant files, Snowden, Assange, Chelsea Manning, etc., that some financial insiders really want to participate in democratic struggles and bring down the oligarchy.

– Call on the United Nations to promote direct democracy in our countries. We all know that the United Nations cannot impose it, but it can measure and promote it. In fact, it cannot deny to apply what is in its founding texts. Even a dictator doesn’t like to be pointed at. International organizations can be valuable allies. It is a reality that the UN, despite all its past failure and our frustrations, have advanced peace by drastically reducing wars between countries, reducing child labour by nine tenth, and defeating the greatest diseases in history, such as smallpox. They are doing their job, do not confuse them with the European Union.

To all of us, keep having courage, we have every reason to be proud of the work done so far, victory may be unlikely, but it is possible if we use our anger for our own ends and not in the service of the opponents of democracy.

The government is trying to impose leaders on yellow vests that do not want them:

Fly Rider
Jacline Mouraud
Priscillia Ludosky
Etienne Chouard

It is quite clear that the government is trying to make Eric Drouet a martyr.

After his first arrest, several petitions to free him were circulated:

like this one: https://www.change.org/p/nous-les-gilets-jaunes-libérer-eric-drouet

They have been signed by thousands of people.

He was arrested a second time when he came with a dozen friends, without yellow vests, to place a candle at the Concorde in memory of the dead since the beginning of the movement.

The atmosphere was calm. Here is the Concorde a few minutes before his arrest: https://www.francetvinfo.fr/live/message/5c2/d1d/fb8/256/bfc/6c1/70a/ad1.htm

Here are the images of his second arrest: https://twitter.com/ClementLanot/status/1080557500645158912?s=20
and his indictment: https://www.francetvinfo.fr/live/message/5c2/d2c/4a8/256/bfc/6c1/70a/af4.html
Mélanchon is the first to have reacted on france info. He would be happy to be the leader the government is looking for.

Of course we must defend Eric Drouet but without dispersing ourselves. The goal is not to prevent the government from making arrests, it is stronger at this game. The aim is to defend democracy.

Let us not lose focus by focusing on people, that is exactly what the government wants. Let us continue to defend the ideas that bring us together. The Popular Initiative is what the yellow vests want to talk about and that is what they must talk about despite the government’s provocations.

She was a nurse
At the hospital all the time
Full-time
He was a merchant
He travelled all the time
Full-time

And they had beautiful children

So far so good……

Until…
Until it lasted more than ten years…

She worked full-time
Except when she worked day and night
He worked full-time
Not counting his travelling
Only three days a week
Only half of his work week

Stress and lack of sleep
Separation every week
Unpaid overtime
Full of pills

The tone has started to rise
Up
And up

And yet, they are smart
And yet, they are better off than others
No need to work after work
No need to poison themselves at the supermarket
And a healthy place

His self-esteem is now quite low
She gives him a hard time
He feels crushed
She has found another one
Available
When he doesn’t work full time
But at least now, she can also decompress
An hour here and there
It doesn’t make you dream
But it keeps you going
Now there are three of them to take care of the children
Not to mention school and TV…

A broken household
Confused children
Confidence lowered
And disputes
That relieve stress
On the nearest person
It’s too late!

Broken household

But the stress came from work
Over-work
And who’s going to argue with that?

We can’t live without work
Both have to go through it
To be able to barely pay for what they need

If only they knew
They could have discussed
Getting out of the system.

Change their organization
Another job
Another informal job
Create a cooperative
Calling for a vote by popular initiative
Change the country
Live in another country
Another… what?

Gilets Jaunes Coordination (Serveur Discord): http://www.giletsjaunes-coordination.fr

The situation of yellow vests today

1) Fed up with the tax rate in general (fuel prices, taxes and payroll taxes). Is this justified? According to the figures, YES.

“The average French employee recovers two days of purchasing power in 2018 while remaining the most taxed in the European Union (EU). He works until July 27 to cover public expenses. This is two days less than last year and 45 days more than the EU average,” reports the Tribune before the movement of the yellow vests.
“The average French employee is in theory among the best paid with 56,815 euros (6th place in the EU), but he is so taxed (56.73% of charges and taxes on his full salary, 1st place in the EU), that he only has 24,582 euros left in real purchasing power (11th place in the EU).” Contrpoints is ironic: “Thanks to taxes, France is getting poorer without concern”

Is the public service up to this tax rate, NO. “More than 1000 billion every year… If, in the face of these punishments, we observed a profusion of gleaming infrastructures, an irreproachable quality of education, impeccable healthcare institutions, administrations on the cutting edge to provide a service to taxpayers, we could admit this incredible bill,” says Counterpoints. “Knowing that at the same time, the country’s debt is growing, where the hell is the money going?”

2) Fed up with the tolls. Is this justified? YES

The private companies that built the motorways have been reimbursed for their costs and received a margin since 2005, called “The historical error of privatisation” says Obs. Why did Chirac and Villepin renew their contract instead of leaving the free highways as was imagined from the beginning? In addition, repairs and maintenance are not done properly. “Sometimes they do the renovations after five years instead of four, sometimes they use slightly cheaper materials without it being too obvious” according to the court of accounts (L’Obs).
Yellow vests are perfectly legitimate when they allow vehicles to pass free of charge on the highway and it is a real scandal that there are laws against it that put certain people in prison and force police officers to use violence they do not want. Extortion, theft against the will of people, that’s what it is.

3) Fed up with supermarkets. Is this justified? YES.

Quality continues to deteriorate and prices rise for the benefit of shareholders. Food is a basic need; the law specifies that it is a service of general interest. People have to eat. Why entrust this to people who are too greedy and not very caring!

4) Will the movement be recovered by the neo-Nazis? Maybe.

The question is why we are talking about it when it is not currently the case. These premonitions encourage neo-Nazis to join the movement; just as Trump encouraged anti-democratic violence during and after the mid-Term by announcing them in a premonitory manner. French elites try to scare people who are justified in joining the yellow vests but do not wish to receive violence and/or infamy in return.

Why are some people trying to scare the yellow vests?

We can only hope that this group remains democratic, non-violent despite the violence of laws and premonitions. If they fail to manage in te good direction, without a leader and without violence, France would suffer terribly. Let us hope that this movement will allow France to find its way back to more democracy.

Press freedom is also in danger. “Better yet: the same journalists, largely invested with the sacred mission of defending taxes and the famous consent to taxes, seeing moreover that the amalgam "grumbles against taxes = fascist and populist movement” no longer works, find themselves lost in contortions funny enough to show that the State has nothing to do with it and that in reality, these taxes, even if they are high, make it possible (at your choice) to fight (climate change) pollution, to pay for (properly cleared and salted in winter) congested roads, to (educate) your children to assault teachers or to ensure the safety of (emotional) neighbourhoods.“explains Counterpoints.
