We, women and men from all continents of the world want to develop a culture of peace on a global level, and know that for the future of humanity the only route is peace.
We also know that it constantly requires the action of citizens, people, and states, to maintain a state of peace.
That is why, faced with the dangers for peace that consist of: a globalization that puts the burden on the people of excessive military expenditure, nuclear weapons that threaten the survival of humanity, and climate disruption,
we call on all women and men, around the world, to mobilize for peace by getting all political leaders, elected officials, heads of state and heads of international institutions to create some form of multilateral disarmament measures (especially nuclear), to protect the planet and develop human rights and education for the culture of peace in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations.
100 years after the armistice of November 11, 1918, down with war, let’s build peace!
Oleg Bodrov, Chairperson of the South Coast of the Gulf of Finland,
interregional public movement of St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region, Russia
