For India to provide leadership in the appropriate United Nations forums for a United Nations Charter Article 109 General Review Conference with the stipulation that the Review Conference consider the Constitution for the Federation of Earth (Earth Constitution), in conformance with the Rules of Procedure for the World Constitutional Convention, as adopted by the Provisional World Parliament Sixth Session, Bangkok, March 2003.
Appeal to India to propose a UN General Review Conference
Whereas, Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and other founders of the Indian Federation insisted early on the necessity of true world federation;
As India’s initial approval of the United Nations Charter was contingent upon a successful world federal United Nations Review Conference by 1955, in order that the United Nations have approval from the federation of India;
As in 1945, at San Francisco, the United Nations made sworn promise of world federating Review Conference corrections to India by 1955, to the pleni-potentiaries of Sir V.T. Krishnamachari, representative of Indian States; and to Sir Ramaswami Mudaliar, leader of the delegation;
As the United Nations under its current structure and UN Charter is accountable for the world’s nuclear cold war in conformance with its provisions of United Nations Charter Chapters 7 and 8;
As the weaknesses of the United Nations Charter are directly accountable for the repeating tribulations, wars, famines, disease outbreaks, environmental disasters and mounting crises of every kind around the world;
As the failure of the United Nations system is also accountable for the 400-odd rusting and festering nuclear power plants positioned in unsafe places around the world;
As the weaknesses of the United Nations Charter are similarly accountable for the proliferation of bio-weapons labs around the world;
As the United Nations as currently structured under the United Nations Charter comprises a direct and expanding threat to the regional sovereignty of the people of India and to the sovereignty of the people of Earth;
As any Rules of Procedure for any General Review Conference of the United Nations Charter originating from the anti-federal, anti-democratic, United Nations system itself is grossly inadequate for ensuring a democratic, reasonable General Review Conference that could result in the protection of the sovereignty of the people of Earth, together with the sovereignty of the constituent states of Earth, including the sovereignty of India;
And whereas if other continental federations, such as Brasil, Indonesia, Pakistan, Nigeria and Bangladesh are included, the top populous eleven (11) federations, when including Permanent Security Council Members France and United Kingdom, constitute over 56.5% of the population of Earth; or even greatly more—over 4.841 billion people in the 14 largest federations = over 61.27% of the world population supposedly represented in the United Nations by 14 votes out of 193 votes, which is obviously a grotesque over-centralization, with no meaningful voice of the respective people of any those countries, nor of the other 179 or so states;
Whereas, at the same time, the United Nations conducts unfathomable war powers through its Chapter 7 and Chapter 8 provisions, constituting in fact a seventy-five year old war surfacing continually over the years in the various United Nations overt hot conflicts from Korea (1950-1953), to Congo (1961), to Yugoslavia (1991-2001), to Iraq (1991), as well as untold others, and as continual widespread proxy conflicts from 1945 to the present day, most of which since 1967 include the use of the extremely dirty depleted uranium battlefield weapon detonations;
As this concentration of supposed representation is an extreme over-centralization of power, carrying with it the opportunity for gross mis-representation of the peoples and states of the Security Council, but also of the peoples and states of the world, generally.
Whereas this state of affairs comprises a gross under-representation for the peoples and states of India, as well as for well over half the peoples of Earth, and constitutes a centralization of power grossly misrepresenting these same constituencies; with wanton dissipation of power to external forces not representative of democratic process;
Whereas, the veto power gives arbitrary and vast powers to five nation-states, thereby defeating the stated purposes of the UN Charter to establish a peaceful world order;
This 15th Session of the Provisional World Parliament, convening on World Human Rights Day, 10th through 12th December 2021, on behalf of the people of Earth, including the people of India, hereby adopts this memorial to the Republic of India, requesting the Government of India to move in both the UN General Assembly as well as in the UN Security Council for the United Nations Charter Article 109 General Review Conference, with the proviso that the Review Conference be convened for examination and adoption of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth (Earth Constitution), in conformance with the applicable Rules of Procedure for the World Constitutional Convention of Article 18.5 and 18.6., of the Earth Constitution, the respective applicable rules being, in particular and foremost, Articles 4., 7. and 10. of the Rules of Procedure for the World Constitutional Convention (both documents attached to this Memorial).
Furthermore, the Provisional World Parliament urges the Government of India, in keeping with the literal substance of the United Nations Charter Articles 2 and 3, to mandate and require the 28 States and 9 Union Territories of India, as an internal matter of upholding the sovereignty of the Republic of India, and in conformance with constitutional processes, to give their own state accessions as candidate Member States to the United Nations, bringing India’s potential vote in the United Nations General Assembly from 1 up to 38. This domestic affair, then, might lead to India’s voice of 38 votes in the General Review Conference under appropriate Rules of Procedure—not a paltry single vote contrary to the precise and literal wording of United Nations Charter Articles 2 and 3. This World Parliament urges the Government of India to move that the Security Council recommend the admission of acceding states of continental federations to the General Assembly (in conformance with Article 4 of the United Nations Charter), for deliberating the United Nations Article 109 General Review Conference with intelligent weighting of member state (national) delegations.
