Yours Truly Attends Lawyers Conference in Oakland • Touts U.N. Evolution

2015 October 22nd, Thursday: I had a good time attending the National Lawyers' Guild annual meet-up in Oakland, California. Tasha, the press point person, kindly granted me a press credential because of my STAR ALLIANCE Foundation for All blog. 

First I attended the Indigenous Peoples Rights session, where International Indian Treaty Council Environmental Health Program Coordinator, Rochelle Diver, gave an inspiring review of the progress and movement of the brave indigenous people's and women's movements — in conjunction with developments in International Law — fighting POPS — Persistent Organic Pollutants — toxic chemicals that don't quickly break down and often end up in the cold polar regions.

I then got to participate in the discussion following the panel on the U.N. Charter.  I brought to light that Article 109 of the Charter prescribes a mechanism for making the U.N. a more fully fair, democratic, and effective institution; in fact charter review is set automatically to be placed on the agenda of the General Assembly every ten years...or it can be done anytime there is two-thirds of the GA willing to put it there. 

The catch is: Any one of the Big Five Security Council Permanent members: U.S., China, Russia, Britain, and France; can fail to ratify the final product.  This is tending toward non-starter discouragement psychology if we allow it.

But I touted my perception that the five permanent Security Council members, SINCE they have the power and security and freedom to finally approve or stop a major improvement at any time up to its final adoption — ALSO have the RESPONSIBILITY to lead the rest of the world in this process!! 

We, the People, have to ask and inspire them to do the right thing!

And with climate collapse and Nuclear Winter the two big existential threats of our times staring all thinking people in the face, the right thing is pretty clear: Get on with it!!

My comments were very well received, and I thanked the expert panel and the lawyers in attendance for dwelling on this priority topic.  I challenged them to keep it up, and get those discussions and draft resolutions going which will culminate in a Global Constitutional Convention for our times.
