Invitation


Foundation “Audacity in the name of Humanity” 

Why are you invited?

As human being inhabitant of the Earth you are invited to act against

the commodification and privatization of any life form.

All human beings do not have to beg for the recognition of their

rights and dignity to the actual world rulers such as market and

multinational companies.

The legitimate source of power belongs to human beings, peoples

and humanity.

In the real democracy, power is spread everywhere and shared by

anybody. In the real society of the rights and justice, every human

being can inhabit any place of the world. There are no clandestines

on earth, nor second or third class inhabitants.

L’Humanity needs to organize itself in order to exist as primary actor

of self-regulation in the common living on a global scale and take on

the responsibility for the lives of and on the Earth. We invite you to

share the experiences of the wounded humanity and the new

growing one relying on the solid utopian belief that it is possible to

think of and give birth to a happier and just future for humanity, any

man and woman and all living creatures.

 

The agora of the inhabitants of the Earth

13-16 December Figueres, Catalogna, Spain

Foundation “Audacity in the name of Humanity”

The citizens and peoples of the Earth no longer participate in the

decisions concerning the future of life and humanity. The little democracy

attained until the 80s is only a memory. The future of the world is left to

the arbitrariness and domination of an ever-shrinking circle of powerful

social groups and private bearers fighting for their interests and

enrichment (“America First”, “Britain First”, “China First,” “Italy First”). The

rights of the people and their communities are denied and humanity is

crumbling to pieces

In this year 2018 we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal

Declaration of Human Rights.

– The inhabitants of the Earth have to reclaim the strength of life,

freedom and justice they have conquered through the rights so far.

– They have to equip themselves with the institutions and the means

to rule their common future on a pluralistic, cooperative and

participative basis starting from the “local” communities.

Security of existence and living well together are a collective and global

affair.

For this purpose, a group of Europeans recently joined by other people

coming from Europe and other countries like Latin America, North

America, Africa and Asia, have launched the Action Program “Audacity in

the name of humanity” in December 2017. Its objective is to raise

awareness and mobilize citizens on the necessity and urgency to

recognize humanity as a key player in the political, economic and social

regulation worldwide. Only humanity, as such, can speak and act

effectively to change the world in the interest and safeguard of the life on

earth and all its inhabitants (including all living species).

In this context, the first action started is the Agora of the Inhabitants

of the Earth (AHT).

Foundation “Audacity in the name of Humanity”

The Agora of the Inhabitants of the Earth. Purpose

It is part of a long journey for the inhabitants of the Earth to create new

stories for the present and the future. Steps in this direction are numerous

and diverse around the world, proving the great variety of the individual

and collective creativity. Our step is part of the paths of uprising,

resistance and building alternatives to the dominant trends. We do not

think that the priority is to address the actual world rulers asking them to

be less predatory, less warlike, less exclusionary and more “human”. Our

bet is audacity.

We have in mind three audacities above all:

  1. To ban war once and for all

2.To declare illegal the structural factors generating impoverishment

and exclusion in the world

3.To eradicate the current predatory and speculative financial system

The Agora of the Inhabitants of the Earth: two major aims

The first one: to contribute to the building process of humanity by

examining and developing new horizons to change the future and, to this

end, to approve a basic orientation document called “Chart of Humanity.

Towards A Pact of Humanity”. The Chart will recall the great values

Foundation “Audacity in the name of Humanity”

declared and lived by humankind to this day and will express the visions

and concrete utopias of the inhabitants of the Earth aiming to make them

true. In particular, it will seek to mark one of the most decisive tracks to

follow, namely the formation from below of a Security Council of the

World Public Commons. At a time when a “common good” can become

private, it is fundamental that public goods and public interests are

safeguarded for life;

– The second one: to launch the initiative “Inhabitant of the Earth – World

Identity Card” promoted by a network of Municipalities (or Local

Communities) of the various continents that will deliver to their inhabitants

a World Identity Card as “Inhabitant of the Earth”. This Card will have no

formal legal value and cannot be considered a new form of passport. The

Card will have a symbolic, human and social value. Through this Card,

Municipalities will recognize that all human beings, rooted in their

innumerable places (oikos) on earth, are Inhabitants of the City-Earth and

hence members of the same “human community” before and beyond

being Chinese, Brazilian, Finnish, Greek, Tunisian, Kazakh, Japanese,

Senegalese, Colombian, Hungarian, American, Russian, Argentine,

English, French, Ugandan, Uzbek, Vietnamese, Australian, Romanian,

German, Malian, Indian, Iranian, Quebecois …

Practical organizational aspects

Registration is free. A symbolic voluntary contribution (e.g. 10 euro) would

be appreciated.

The place: Figueres is a charming small town in northern Catalonia,

Spain, about 20 km from the border with France. It is easily reachable by

TGV, European line Barcelona / Montpellier / Paris and by plane (airports

of Girona and Perpignan). Figueres is also well known as the city where

Salvador Dali was born and lived.

The works of the Agora will be held in the site “Chateau Sant

Ferran” (http://www.castillosanfernando.org) where we can also organize

the planned cultural and artistic activities (see program below). The

working languages will be Spanish, Catalan, French and English.

Regarding the accommodation, which is at the expense of each

participant, we are negotiating with the three most important hotels (three

to four stars) located near the Chateau Sant Ferran, a price between 41

and 55 euro for room + breakfast / per person / per night. See the price list

in Appendix 1. The faster and many will be the bookings, the more precise

will be the information. No money will come back to our organization. In

addition, each participant remains free to follow or not our suggestions.

Travel expenses are borne by each participant. We will try to create a

solidarity fund and a sponsorship fund to partially support young activists

from Africa, Latin America and Asia in cooperation with the members of

the Agora Promoters Committee, which is listed below.
