WFMC News for December 2022

A Message to our Members 

Happy New Year fellow world federalists! 2022 was a year full of economic, political, and climate challenges that affected people across the planet. As world federalists, we advocate for a better path forward; for a global system that can produce better outcomes for the people of the world and for future generations. We acknowledge that our outdated system has failed to adapt to modern challenges in the current globalized context. This discontentment with the status quo has been everpresent at our many events hosted this past year by our incredible local branches of the WFM-Canada. To all our guest speakers, thank you for your inspiring work - we will continue to support your ideas and efforts!

 
This year our fight continues. To our members who demonstrate their support, we thank you! Whether it's attending events or discussion groups, signing onto our Take Action advocacy newsletter petitions, volunteering or donating, you play a crucial role in making the Canadian world federalist movement strong. We will continue working hard on advocating for reforms that make our global institutions more representative and effective!
The lofty ideals of the United Nations speak of protecting human rights and of peace for all people. Yet the UN is an assembly of ambassadors representing the views of their national governments. The UN has no place for actual significant input of the people. Governments act to protect their own interests, which may coincide with their own population's interests, but not necessarily the interests of all humanity. A UN Parliamentary Assembly (UNPA) would give a voice to citizen-elected representatives and would make decisions in people’s best interest. For example, living sustainably is unquestionably in the collective interest of humanity, even if it may not be in the interest of any one nation to lead the way.

The Campaign for a UN Parliamentary Assembly has received wide, high-level support around the world, but there is still no UNPA. Andreas Bummel, co-convenor of the Campaign will review the idea of a UNPA, discuss how a UNPA might get started, and review the status of the promotional Campaign. He will discuss with the Toronto area World Federalist's practical things they could do to help support the campaign.
