“The Human Cause, is an Ode to the Peace Manifesto, an almost archetypal cry for ceasefire revisited throughout history by various groups and organizations.
This overlaps in many ways with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights”. – Faith XLVII
The UDHR, a milestone document in the history of human rights, was enacted by the UN on December 10, 1948. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected.
We raise a White Flag as an unyielding symbolic and actual call for ceasefire.
We align as fellow citizens of the sacred Earth.
We understand that the wellbeing of humankind is deeply linked to the longevity of the planet.
We encourage practical, intelligent actions towards protecting earth with the various organisms, animals, plants and eco-systems that it sustains.
We see all humans as equal, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, culture, race or creed.
We believe that sustenance, water, healthcare, shelter and education are basic human rights.
We aim to engage in economic systems that value the wellbeing of people over profit.
We do not view war and violence as solutions.
Rather we urge governments to maintain peace between differing ideologies through negotiation.
We strive for the use of technology to aid us in finding solutions to our problems by working in conjunction with, not against, natural systems.
We realize that we exist in a realm of chaos and irony, thus we embrace the perseverance and poetic optimism necessary to achieve these goals .
