Silence And Inaction Of UN, US, EU, UK And ICC Have Pushed The World Back To Dark Eras Of Dictatorship, Chaos And Tears – Intersociety Laments
…Says Bloody Conflicts Fueled By Dictatorship And Repression Involving 882 Militia-terror Entities Have Torn 70 Countries Apart
…As Presidents of Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Eritrea Willed To Die And Be Buried In Office
The International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) has lamented that the Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms around the globe are becoming gravely deteriorating day in day out. The human rights body said that as far as we at Intersociety are concerned, the global state of human rights is nothing to write home about especially going by this year’s ‘World Human Rights Day’.
In a statement signed by its principal officers, the Intersociety maintained that as a matter of fact, the international peace and security; the UN’s Fundamental Objective is under a serious threat of extinction.
The rest of the statement reads:
Many countries with progressive improvements on democracy and leadership accountability have also been found to have retreated back to dictatorship and citizens’ repression. Multinational companies and social enterprises have become demigods and outlaws with little or no checks and balances.
A cursory look at the Theme for 2022 World Human Rights Day: “Dignity, Freedom and Justice for All” clearly indicates chronic opposite of the realities on the ground. The foundations of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, Democracy and Political Inclusion and Peace and Security upon which the UN, EU, US, UK and ICC are founded to offer global policing, defense and protection of the 8billion global citizens, their environments and properties are facing deadly suppression and destruction by emerging dictators, murderers and barbarians.
The UN Security Council and the ICC have continued to be peopled and assembled by weaklings and men and women lacking charisma and visionary leadership. They have also refused to be extensively reformed. The Chief Prosecutor of ICC and the Court’s President have slumbered at the expense of lives and safeties of hundreds of millions of defenseless citizens especially women and children facing death and other terminal threats in the hands of national dictators and blood sucking armed opposition groups and persons professing radical Islamism or killer ethnic identities.
The General Assembly of the United Nations has formed the habit of assembling world’s greatest murderer-heads of state and government including those that have willed to die and be buried in office. The annual UN General Assembly session has become a talk-show and an arena for fashion parades by wives of Presidents and Heads of Government of the Member-States and their large entourage.
The UN Security Council is chronically ineptitude, polarized and divided along former Socialist-Capitalist or Western-Eastern lines; with vivid example being the protracted civil war in Syria that started in 2011 and has almost flushed out all defenseless citizens of the country including forcing over half into being internally displaced or forced to flee or hacked to death.
Ukraine is another eye-opener. The US, UK and EU seem less concerned about the tragic state of global rights issues except in the manufacture and influx of SALWs particularly in Africa, Middle East, Asia and former Eastern bloc where they are used in killing or massacring millions and obstructing human rights, bastardizing democracies, economic growth and development and facilitating the emergence of brute tyrants and dictators.
This is to the extent that today, “the beginning of wisdom for any dictator is to do the bidding of any powerful western state and stay in office until he or she dies and be buried”; thereby encouraging endless military takeovers and transformation into dictatorship through brutal and massive electoral frauds.
It is on account of the above that the International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) makes bold to say that silence and inaction of UN, US, EU, UK and ICC have pushed the world back to dark eras of dictatorship, chaos, tears and bloodletting. It must be noted that the modern day United Nations and its beautifully espoused Human Rights and Peace and Security principles were inspired and given life by the charismatic vision of Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of USA (1913-1921) through his famous “14-Point Program for the formation of the League of Nations in 1919”. His 14-Point Program had included Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and Peace and Security-which later became the “Fundamental Objectives of the United Nations”.
The 14-Point Program was years later expanded in the “Atlantic Charter of 1941” by an assemblage of world great leaders from which the formation of United Nations was agreed upon in June 1945. Built on Woodrow Wilson’s famous 14-Point Program, Madam Elizabeth Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of President Franklin D. Roosevelt of the United States later chaired an 18-person committee that worked and recommended for the enactment of “the Universal Declaration of Human Rights or UDHR”; eventually enacted on 10th Dec 1948 and marked every 10th of December in the 193 UN Member-States and UN recognized 66 self governing territories around the world.
There Must Be Global Concerted Efforts Towards Promotion And Protection Of Human Rights
Intersociety hereby calls for proactive efforts at curbing global human rights violations. There must be foreign policy re-direction by the named powerful countries geared towards channelization of more energy into defense and protection of human rights, total blacklisting of existing and emerging dictators and curbing Islamic extremism around the world and huge global commitment at enthroning and sustaining credible democratic governments and their prevention from relapsing or retreating back to dictatorship and political repressions.
70 Countries In Wars With 882 Militia-Terror Entities Generating 89.3m Forcibly Displaced Persons
While the end of cold war in 1991 had substantially reduced the emergence of bloody inter-state conflicts and armament race, the number of bloody intra-state conflicts across the world has quadrupled with 70 countries out of the UN recognized 193 independent countries presently involved and torn apart in which 882 militia-terror entities and embryonic others are engaged. In Africa, 31 states are embroiled and torn apart involving 295 armed opposition groups dominated by Islamic militants. Africa is followed by Middle East with seven states and 266 armed opposition groups engaged. Asia is third with 16 States involving 201 armed opposition groups. Europe is fourth with 10 states involving 86 armed opposition groups, followed by Americas with 7 states involving 35 drug cartels and terror-separatists.
There are also 47 active non-independent territories around the world involved in territorial independence seeking agitations through nonviolent or violent means including 20 in Asia, 10 in Africa, 13 in Europe, 2 in Middle East and 2 in Oceania. The devastations brought about by political turbulences fueled by dictatorship and political repressions have also generated 89.3m forcibly displaced persons around the world, out of which, 27.1m are refugees and 53.2m internally displaced persons.
