The General Council held in Rome at the Senate of the Republic as well as at the Party’s head office from May 28 to May 30, 2010.
Noting the presentations of the Party’s leaders and the other presenters, in particular those hinging on human rights by Cesare Romano, Tullio Padovani and Emanuele Rebasti;.
Appreciating the extraordinary commitment of all concerned in participating for the entire length of the deliberation;
Taking note of the success of the first step in the formal, political and statutory process leading to the Congress of the Party, which step is aimed at overcoming the political crisis and the crisis in organization objectively flowing from the deterioration of international legality and worldwide democracy;
Reiterating its condemnation for the obvious and systematic illegality in the conduct of the UN and the EU which no longer respect their founding charters and are in a downward process of degeneration towards a so-called “real democracy” which no longer reflects the values of what has long been termed the “free world”;
Specifically denouncing the irresponsible and illegitimate conduct of international organizations in respect of countries and situations they have formally acknowledged to be undemocratic and in violation of the rule of law;
Echoing and endorsing the European Parliament’ solemn statement of May 8, 2008 based on Marco Cappato’s report on human rights which reads that “the European Parliament deems nonviolence the most adequate tool to ensure the full measure of enjoyment, affirmation and promotion of fundamental human rights, thereby holding that defending the right to engage in nonviolent action is a priority in promoting human rights and democracy by the European Union”;
Condemning that this important resolution of the European Parliament and the European Union has remained death letter; and
Lamenting the progressive burocratisation of both international and supernational authorities and their being often unutilized and ignored, which increases the overall levels of international lawlessness in respect of human rights protection already denounced by Winston Churchill in 1946 when he stated that “the Society of Nation did not fail on account of its values having been defeated, but on account of the neglect of such values by the very States which founded the Society. It failed because the governments at the time feared facing up to reality and act timely. We must not allow for this disaster to reoccur”.
Now therefore, the General Council
- commits the whole Party, its leaders and its supporters to act on the proposal submitted by Professor Cesare Romano, and endorsed by the Party, to support and aid with both political and legal action the individual petitions and lawsuit lodged with international courts by victims of government wrongdoings, thereby bringing new life and strength into these international fora while promoting their democratization;
- mandates its leaders to convene another General Council for September to prepare the 39th Congress envisaged to be held before year’s end, and in preparation of these deadlines, in terms of its Constitution, the General Council acknowledges the need of the Party’s Senate expressing its preliminary advise on the programs and projects under consideration, so that all organizations which the Party comprises of may contribute to provide a needed convergence of views and activities with the aforesaid Party objectives; and.
- highlights the importance of the new memberships obtained during the General Council, both in respect of Italy and internationally especially those of representatives of institutions and organizations as well as nonviolent and democratic entities of Albania, Azerbaigian, Belgium, Cabinda, Cambodia, Southern Cameroon, China, Croazia, Italy, Kyrgystan, Laos, Mali, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Pakistan, Russia, Spain, South Africa, East Turkenstan, Tibet and Vietnam.
