CONVENTION OF THE NONVIOLENT RADICAL PARTY TRANSNATIONAL TRANSPARTY. 27th – 29th OCTOBER 2017


Three days of extraordinary mobilization for the universality of human rights, the right to know and the fight with nonviolence against extermination by hunger, thirst, war and poverty in the world. To launch the initiative is the Nonviolent Radical Party Transnational Transparty convinced that an in-depth debate on these issues is ever urgent. The Convention will take place in the Rome office of the NRPTT from 27 to 29 October in Via di Torre Argentina 76. Political leaders and personalities from twenty different nationalities will participate.

While the whole world is focusing on the terrorist emergency, the alarming phenomenon of mass migration and the nuclear threat posed by North Korea, the Nonviolent Radical Party Transnational Transparty, a non-governmental organization with General Consultive Status at the ECOSOC of the Nations United, wants to draw attention to the mechanisms and structures underlying these emergency situations: the absence of the rule of law, the failure to enforce human rights for all, the lack of coherent actions on issues related to those emergencies, such as the ongoing hunger crisis, which the UN has defined as the worst humanitarian crisis from the end World War II. All this in the face of a lack of information and public debate on these driving forces.

Thirty-six years after the launch of the Appeal signed by Nobel Laureates to stop the extermination by hunger; twenty-eight years after the fall of the Berlin Wall; fourteen years after the wicked invasion of Iraq hunger, poverty, conflict and authoritarian regimes are violently back on the map of the world.

Contrary to what was predicted, economic expansion did not lead to universal implementation of human rights and democratic standards. Instead, it brought about new and improved forms of slavery. Participants in the three-day Convention will debate the fundamental principles of the rule of law in different sessions. Issues include violations of human rights, in particular against minorities, nations without representation and oppressed peoples in the world; justice, freedom of religion or belief, the United States of Europe, the human right to know, and nonviolence as a political tool will also be dealt with.

The Convention will provide an opportunity to recall the crucial forthcoming deadline. By the end of the year 3000 people will join the Nonviolent Radical Party Transnational Transparty or it will be irrevocably closed, as established by the motion adopted in Congress in September 2016. It means pulling the plug on 62 years of history and political struggle for human rights across the world. It means relinquishing the consultative status within the United Nations and thus the right to speak from the platform that the NRPTT has guaranteed to the unrepresented and oppressed people in the world.

Working languages are Italian, English and French. The event will be broadcast live by Radio Radicale and will be available on www.radioradicale.it
