Ammend the UN Human Rights by signing this petition.
The United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights is failing humankind. Indeed it’s failing planet Earth itself.
The evidence is everywhere: a billion citizens live and die on a dollar a day; people lack control over their own community’s resources; terrorism, war and unrest threaten everyone; the planet’s future is imperiled by cataclysmic ‘natural’ disaster. The root cause of all these problems is privileged and unethical access to our common wealth and the failure to protect the equal right of future generations, which are entitled to receive Earth in as good a condition as we ought to have received it from our ancestors.
The 1948 Declaration is silent on this. It is past time for it to speak up. The Declaration fails to protect our most basic universal human right — our right to a share in Earth — and our corresponding universal duty — our duty to compensate the community for what we take. The UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights needs to be amended to restore the birthright of every man, woman and child to their share in the earth’s common gift of land and natural resources.
