Legislative Proposals for PWP 15

___________________________________________________________________________

Bill for Additive Amendment to the World Legislative Act Number 4 –

World University System

To preamble add this clause:

As there is the urgent need for standard processes of certification of personnel of the Earth Federation, and in particular, necessity that there be a lawful regulation regarding the certification of world federal law professionals;

To body, add this clause 11.:

11.01. The Graduate Studies Programme in Global Affairs is created, which will cover studies in philosophy, law, international relations, economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, geography, international geopolitics, complexity sciences, communication, sciences and technologies, and other disciplines necessary to have a holistic vision, in social and cultural aspects, to give the participants an integral professional panorama necessary to understand the change of civilizational paradigm that is coming, as well as to act accordingly in the construction of a scheme civilizing according to this new paradigm, under a democratic federated world government according to the Constitution for the Federation of the Earth.

11.02. (Reserved)

 11.03. A Graduate Studies programme in Global Affairs shall train university professionals with a vision that transcends modernity, training them to: 11.03.1. Organize and participate in the direction of the World Electoral and Administrative Districts. 11.03.2. Organize and participate in the various forms of world government established in the Earth Constitution at the local, regional and global levels. 11.03.3. Compile international legislation and propose amendments to be consistent with the spirit of the Earth Constitution. 11.03.4. Propose modifications to the Earth Constitution in the terms established in its text. 11.03.5. Propose modifications to the current international structure to adapt to the principles and norms of the Earth Constitution. 11.03.6. Propose and organize procedures for the ratification of the Earth Constitution, as well as participate in them.

11.04. (Reserved)

11.05. The Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) and World Civil Service Administration (WCSA) are jointly directed to prepare a plan:

11.05.1. Holistic Study Programme for all types of university professionals, both in science and humanities, with its theoretical and practical aspects (internships). The practical aspect is important, including the creation of World Electoral and Administrative Districts and other governance structures established in the Earth Constitution. The study programme includes two main areas:

 11.05.1.1. (Reserved). 11.05.1.2. (Reserved)

11.05.2.  (Reserved)

11.05.3. The IGPWP / WCSA may cooperate with universities that are willing to accredit the program. The programme may be spread over several universities. The programme may operate without local, state or regional accreditation, upon the authority of the Earth Constitution, World Legislation and the continuing agencies that comprise the provisional Earth Federation, in particular, the IGPWP, which has its own world accreditation authority under this world legislation.

11.05.4. (Reserved).

11.05.5. Plan for logistical support to students (scholarships, accommodation, food, and workspace).

11.06. (Reserved).

11.07. The standing parliamentary Education Commission shall first report in six months to present further design of the joint Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) / World Civil Service Administration (WSCA) (Earth Constitution 8.4., 8.2.) programme, execution plan and financing, to be published securely at wcpa.global, at earthconstitution.world, and at as many mirror sites as feasible. For simplicity at the provisional stage, the Joint Commission may be referred to as the Education Commission or the IGPWP (Earth Constitution 19.1.2., 19.2.7.).

11.08. Standard law examinations. A function of the Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) and World Civil Service Administration (WCSA) is to architect the standard examinations for professional work in the Earth Federation (EC 8.2.1. & 8.4.1.). In particular, the IGPWP / WCSA shall design and adopt the standard law examinations for professionals who are seeking certification (world license) within the cooperative benevolent associations that are the World Electoral and Administrative Districts (WEADs, WDs or world districts). Standard law examinations are in four categories: judicial, attorney, ombudsan and general law.

11.08.1. Judicial. For internal certification (internal licensure) within a world district level, as well as for world regional and world practice, judicial exams will require demonstration of measured knowledge from the Earth Constitution and from world legislative acts, in particular the following: 1, 5, 15, 19, 20, 24, 28, 37, 39, 44 and 48. World judicial certification requires neither prior world attorney certification nor prior world ombudsan certification. However, for judicial practice, the IGPWP shall require law professionals with judicial licensure to take continuing education for eventual completion of certification in the categories of attorney certification and ombudsan certification. The IGPWP may issue world certificate (license) for competencies of varying levels of certification. In particular, world legislative acts numbers 20 and 24 are particularly comprehensive and might reasonably take years of study to fully master, while the Earth does not have time to wait for full mastery of these laws before the beginnings of cases. Therefore, for initial issuance of the judicial certification, the exam need only cover the basics of world acts, with focus in particular on Acts 15, 19, 20 and 24. World Judges shall refer to these texts for the conduct of cases. In continuing education, world judges, for advancement in certification, will demonstrate cumulatively more proficient knowledge of these acts.

11.08.2. Attorney (Solicitor, Prosecutor). For internal certification (licensure) within a world district level, as well as for world regional and world practice, attorney exams will require demonstration of measured knowledge from the Earth Constitution and from world legislative acts, in particular the following: 1, 13, 14, 15, 19, 20, 24, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 39, 40, 41, 43, 46, 54, 55, 56, 60, 69 and 70. The IGPWP may issue world certificate (license) for competencies of varying levels of certification. The IGPWP may require law professionals with attorney certification to take continuing education to demonstrate advanced competencies.

11.08.3. Ombudsan (Public Defender). For internal certification (licensure) within a world district level, as well as for world regional and world practice, ombudsan exams will require demonstration of measured knowledge from the Earth Constitution and from world legislative acts, in particular the following: 1, 4, 5, 13, 14, 15, 20, 24, 27, 28, 31, 32, 37, 45, 56, and 59. The IGPWP may issue world certificate (license) for competencies of varying levels of certification. The IGPWP may require law professionals with ombudsan certification to take continuing education to demonstrate advanced competencies.

11.08.4 General Law. There is a great social need for individuals who are knowledgeable of the world law, who are not practicing law for duty in world court, but primarily for advising, representing or practicing outside of World Court. For internal certification (licensure) within a world district level, as well as for world regional and world practice, General Law exams might comprise knowledge in any custom combination of the Earth Constitution and World Legislation.

11.08.5. As a condition of law certification, under solemn undertaking, the IGPWP shall require affirmation of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth (Earth Constitution) as the Supreme Law of Earth within humanity’s institution of law. At least three world district judges shall witness the undertaking, which the world district court clerk shall register into the world court record. To begin, three IGPWP Standing Parliamentary Commission officers may begin the initial process of witness and record of solemn undertaking. Also, to begin at the World District level, three interim world district IGPWP commission officers may begin the initial process of witness and world court record of solemn undertaking.

11.09. The Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) shall work toward establishing and operating a commission and an office of the IGPWP and an office of the World Civil Service Administration (WCSA) in each World Electoral and Administrative District (WEAD, WD, world district). To begin, commissioners may operate the office via the Internet and virtual space. The function of the world district commissions is to begin the Earth Federation, particularly the law services, within each respective world district. Commissioners of IGPWP and WCSA need not have world law certification, but may serve as witness to the solemn undertaking of IGPWP-certified law professionals seeking positions as world judges, world attorneys and world ombudsman in the respective district. World Districts shall only require world district residency from applicants who are seeking elected public office within the respective world district.

 11.10. If the Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) seeks registration with any sub-jurisdiction, the incorporators shall register also the Earth Constitution and this world legislative act Number Four as annexes in force to any by-laws. Any registered IGPWP shall organize its structure to conform to the structure of the IGPWP and World Civil Service Administration (WCSA) of the Earth Constitution (Articles 8.4. & 8.2.), insofar as feasible. Any registered IGPWP or WCSA shall endeavor to match structure within 18 months of the attainment of the first operative stage defined in Earth Constitution Article 17.3. World District level offices of the IGPWP and WCSA shall match the structure defined in the World District Standard.

11.11. The IGPWP / WCSA must neither state nor suggest that the certificates issued are valid outside of world electoral and administrative district certifications issued by IGPWP / WCSA. That is, certificates (licensures) of IGPWP/WCSA are null for all sub-jurisdictional levels of government (continental federations, states, counties, municipalities and private practice), unless the respective sub-governmental units adopt rules acknowledging the validity of the certificates outside of the world district.

11.12. The IGPWP / WCSA must neither state nor suggest that certificates issued by IGPWP/WCSA comprise transferable credits, unless respective sub-governmental units adopt rules acknowledging the validity of the certificates outside of the world district, and at least one bona fide sub-jurisdictional accreditation agency assigns credit to the programme.

11.13. The World Financial Administration may establish a Financial Aid office to finance programmes in the Earth Hour unit of credit and currency, up to a maximum of 100%. Participants may apply for financial aid, with qualification depending on the economic capacity of the participant.

11.14. The structure of the IGPWP/WCSA is not held to the same structural requirements as the Graduate School of World Problems.

Within 6 months after beginning of the first operative stage of Earth Federation. The IGPWP/WCSA shall submit plans to the world parliament to formally resolve into their respective IGPWP and WCSA structures. The IGPWP/WCSA plans themselves shall include steps to complete the formation of the resolved IGPWP and WCSA within 18 months of the beginning of the first operative stage of Earth Federation.

11.15 The World Financial Administration may establish a Financial Aid office to finance the educational programme in the Earth Hour unit of credit and currency, up to a maximum of 100%. Participants may apply for financial aid, with qualification depending on the economic capacity of the participant.

The World Parliament assigns &500,000,000,000 (&50,000 crore Earth Hours), per year, for the financial aid programs of IGPWP/WCSA.*

The World Parliament assigns &500,000,000 (&5,000 lakh Earth Hours), per year, for the administration of the provisional IGPWP/WCSA.*

*[“&” is a World Parliament approved sign for the Earth Hour unit of credit and currency.]

Budget allocations are cumulative, until the first operative stage of the Earth Federation, at which time the World Financial Administration may recommend to the World Parliament change in the budget structure for budget allocations to have expiry dates.

11.16. In the World Electoral and Administrative Districts, which are cooperative benevolent associations, everyone conducting WEAD work or studying to conduct WEAD work is a volunteer working in the sense of being free to work and not under duress to work from the World Electoral and Administrative District. However, the World Financial Administration and WCSA shall account for and pay all volunteers in the Earth Hour unit of credit and currency, which may include the keeping of accounts for Earth Hour payment by installments at a later date. The IGPWP/WCSA administration and the WEAD administrations must not suggest that any volunteer is working pro bono, unless the volunteer or the IGPWP/WCSA can demonstrate that payment would cause the volunteer to exceed established income limits (in which case, the World Financial Administration and the WCSA shall assign payment to the volunteer’s retirement account or WLA11 credit point account), as undocumented pro bono work during the initial stages of implementation of the Earth Federation would be a violation of Article 17.6 of the Earth Constitution. To simplify accounting, the World Financial Administration and WCSA may compute earnings on annual salary basis, rather than on a strict hourly punch clock.

11.17. The following people are appointed to form part of the work team (Standing Parliamentary Commission on Education, E.C. 19.1.2.5., and 19.1.2.8.) : 11.04.1. Dr. Glen T. Martin, coordinator 11.04.2. Judge David Percy Quispe 11.04.3. Laura George 11.04.4. Leopoldo A. Cook 11.04.5. Volnei Batista de Carvalho 11.04.6. Eugenia Alma de Quetzal Almand; 11.04.7. P. Narasimha Murthy. The Commission may co-opt additional members.

A Bill for Amendments to World Legislative Act 5

Provisional and Regional World Courts

Act for the Establishment of Provisional District World Courts and Provisional Regional World Courts of the World Supreme Court System, in accordance with Article 19, Sec. 5.2, and with Article 4, of the Constitution for the Federation of Earth, hereinafter referred to as “Earth Constitution

Short Title:

District World Court Act

WHEREAS, the escalation and proliferation of nuclear weapons has reached a level endangering the viability of the entire world by threatening to cause the immediate extinction of all persons and living things on the planet, or at the least such destruction as to set civilization back for hundreds or thousands of years;

WHEREAS, there is an urgent need to establish courts of proper jurisdiction to hear any cases properly brought before the courts regarding issues relating to research, testing, design, production, transportation, deployment, purchase, sale, storage, threatened use or actual use of any nuclear weapons of any size in any delivery system below or above the surface of the Earth, the oceans, or anywhere in the atmosphere or outer space;

WHEREAS, international law and world law and Article 4, Sections 1, 2, 34, 39 and 40 of the Earth Constitution, together with Legislative Act Number One outlawing nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction that has been adopted by the provisional World Parliament in its First Session, now compromise a body of world law appropriate for adjudication and enforcement under a world court system;

WHEREAS, while issues involving the threat of nuclear destruction or extermination present the primary and most urgent need for legal means to deal with such problems in a global context, at the same time many other urgent and crisis type world problems also require the early establishment of world courts of appropriate jurisdiction as avenues for adjudication and enforcement;

WHEREAS, the Earth Constitution under Article 9 does provide for a World Supreme Court together with eight or more defined benches, together with a Superior Tribunal and such related World Regional Courts and World District Courts as may be found necessary; and further provides under Article 19, Sec. 5.2, for the provisional World Parliament to proceed with all actions it considers appropriate and feasible in accordance with the Earth Constitution;

WHEREAS, the judges, advocates and attorneys of the world districts are providing supplemental jurisprudence, and specifically not complementary jurisprudence, that would improperly create overlaps in jurisdiction and judiciability of cases;

WHEREAS, complementary jurisprudence would be interference in the state level of jurisdiction, interfering with full faith and credit, and self-determination, contrary to Article 14.1 of the Earth Constitution;

WHEREAS, complementary jurisprudence would create prosecutorial conditions of double jeopardy, which are prohibited under Article 12.14. of the Earth Constitution;

WHEREAS, the people of Earth are currently overrun with hundreds of thousands of international and world criminals, as well as hundreds of thousands of world civil conflicts not addressed at lower levels of jurisdiction; [These grotesque numbers are in large part emerging from the stockholders of industries tightly vested in violations of world law, but also the executives and rank and file of the respective violating companies;]

WHEREAS, there is a paucity of judges, attorneys, advocates and other world law professionals and para-professionals, created by a guilded international system that places the law professionals’ social status above justice for the people of Earth and protection of the Planet;

Law professionals worldwide comprise only 1 in 400 people, but if we are to practically institute any world federation, the world caseload of dockets in all benches of judicial courts will far more than double, considering the many hundreds of thousands of cases of world crime defined by World Parliament that are commonplace within the pre-existing international system. If World District Courts draw from existing law professionals, then there would be only maybe 1 law professional in 800 people to process existing cases below the world level. Therefore, without intervention, who is there to process and adjudicate the law?;

WHEREAS, that dearth also adversely affects lower levels of jurisdiction by making legal services unattainable by the vast majority of the people of Earth, with only a token amount of services for that vast majority, creating major injustices almost everywhere;

And WHEREAS, the Earth Constitution requirement that World Supreme Court Judges have at least ten years of legal or juristic experience obviously could never properly apply to world district judges, as Earth Federation would never be able to establish a 10-year juristic background for tens of thousands of world judges at start-up;

Whereas, law professional preparations and licensures at a sub-jurisdictional level from the Earth Federation typically require dismissive or antagonistic expressions regarding world federal principles and principles of self-government within a process of world republic;

And since therefore preparatory law programs at sub-jurisdictional levels completely ignore the vital work done, and these local, antiquated programs are totally and evidently forever incompetent for preparing world law professionals;

And WHEREAS, it would be inappropriate and irresponsible to draw world law professionals from the existing tiny pool of existing law professionals, since virtually none of those professionals have a background suitable for acquiring substantial knowledge of existing world legislation, world jurisprudence and the Earth Constitution, and properly largely new skill sets for adjudicating and processing world legislation are necessary to end the tribulation that is caused by the guilding of the world’s law professionals into incompetence and scarcity at the world federal level.

NOW THEREFORE, World Parliament hereby enacts in accordance with these Articles and Sections of the Earth Constitution named above, the following:

1. Provisional District World Courts (hereinafter PDWCs) shall establish in each World Electoral and Administrative District.

2. These PDWCs shall operate under the Earth Constitution which was completed and adopted in Austria in 1977, and amended in Troia, Portugal in 1991. The PDWCs may utilize as their Rules the Rules presently in force in the highest courts of the host country or countries, except when such high court Rules are in contradiction with said Earth Constitution or of subsequent resolutions or legislation of the provisional World Parliament or World Parliament or the World Supreme Court established under the Earth Constitution. The following World Legislative Acts comprise non-exhaustive subsequent legislation:

2.1. Number 15, for World Human Rights Bench; 2.2. Number 19, for World Penal Code;

2.3. Number 20, for World Criminal Case Bench; 2.4. Number24, for Rules of Procedure and Evidence;

2.5. Number 28, for World Bench for Juvenile Cases; and

2.6. Number 37, for Agreement on World Federal Immunities and Privileges. 3. This Act establishes the first provisional Regional World Court (hereinafter PRWC) in Los Angeles, California, USA. This Act establishes the second provisional Regional World Court (hereinafter PRWC) in New Delhi, India. The provisional World Parliament, or the World Supreme Court or provisional World Supreme Court, when constituted, may establish additional PRWCs in countries and cities, as needed. The Rules of said PRWCs are the same as for the Rules presently in force in the highest courts of the host country or countries, except as similarly noted under Article 2 of this Act.

4. World Citizens may take appeals from any judgment of any PDWC or from any judgment of any PRWC, directly to the appropriate Bench of the World Supreme Court or provisional World Supreme Court or to the Superior Tribunal of the World Supreme Court, all as provided under Article 9 of the Earth Constitution.

5. It is not necessary for an appeal from a PDWC to be taken first to a PRWC before being taken to the World Supreme Court or provisional World Supreme Court or to the Superior Tribunal of the World Supreme Court. It is not necessary for any case or action to arise first in a District World Court or PDWC or Regional World Court or PRWC before being taken to a Bench of the World Supreme Court, as district or regional origin and progression is not mandated under the Earth Constitution.

6. The Primary seat of the provisional World Supreme Court will be located in the Primary World Capital, as provided in Article 9, Section 3 of the Earth Constitution. If the Primary World Capital is not established prior to an appeal to the World Supreme Court or provisional World Supreme Court, the provisional World Supreme Court will be located in New Delhi, India.

7. The judgments of all said courts have full force under World Law and International Law, have complete stare decisis effect and are res judicata in World Law and International Law on all issues adjudicated. Virtue of said force and effect shall enforce world court judgments. The World Court shall deem any violation of said judgments a violation of World Law and International Law. In every respect these world courts are empowered to fully function under the Earth Constitution.

8. The World Court shall make Service of Process by first class mail on any defendant or legal representative thereof in the host country or countries of the particular Court or Bench of the World Supreme Court. The World Court shall also make diligent efforts to give hand delivered or telephone notice of Process. For the purpose of serving Process, defendants may be any national, local, regional, state, provincial or other government, or any individual, corporation, association, university or other legally recognized entity. The World Court may serve Process on any embassy, consulate, department of state, foreign office or other responsible governmental department of any country.

9. The terms or periods of these said provisional Courts are from the date of adoption of this Act by the provisional World Parliament, and continuing until further resolution or direction by the provisional World Parliament or World Parliament, or until the complete World Court system is established pursuant to Article 9 of the Earth Constitution.

10. Qualifications of World District Judges, World District Attorneys and World District Advocates

10.1. Three Judges who are attorneys-at-law under the laws of the Earth Federation, and who have minimum age of twenty-five years, evident competence in concepts of world jurisprudence, and commitment to upholding the Earth Constitution shall preside over each case of PDWC and PRWC.

10.2. The World Civil Service Commission of a world district, together with the Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems Commission of a world district shall require world district attorney candidates, world district advocate candidates and world district judge candidates to pass a standard exam in world jurisprudence. The continuation agencies of the Provisional Earth Federation shall set the standards of the examination, subject to review by the World Parliament.

10.3. Continuation agencies include the World Constitution and Parliament Association, the Earth Constitution Institute, the Earth Federation Institute, and any provisional functioning agencies of the Earth Federation, including the provisional World Cabinet and World Presidium. In particular, the Standing Parliamentary Commissions of Earth Constitution Article 19 are among the continuation agencies. Continuation agencies shall cooperate in conformance with the Earth Constitution and in conformance with adopted world legislation addressing the specific functions for the standard exam. The general requirements are defined in the World District Template, Abridged, by EAQ Almand and KJ Evans, 2019.

10.4. Law professionals in each world district shall be headed by 5 Chief World District Judges, 5 Senior World District Attorneys and 5 Senior World Districts Advocates, each of whom are elected by the adult residents of the respective district. To qualify, chief World District Judges, senior world district attorneys and senior world district advocates are world district residents, subject, upon operative general elections, to the initial election by the adult residents of the World District within which they reside. After term, world law professionals may run for re-election within any world district within which they will reside. World law professionals are also qualified for appointment to regional or world level of the world court system, wherein law professionals have tenure during competence, except at the top world Commission levels and World Supreme Court level, which have term limits defined in Earth Constitution Articles 9.4., 10.2, and 11.2.4.

10.5. Once qualified by world district commissions, candidates who have succeeded in the standard examination may serve on a provisional (interim) basis, elected by the WCS Commission and IGPWP Commission in joint session. When regular elections commence, qualified law professionals may also run as candidates for elected district office. Law professionals who start a case during the provisional stage shall conduct the respective case until the conclusion of the respective trial, whether or not elected during general world district elections.

10.6. Once qualified by a world district, Earth Federation law professionals may serve for any world district in the Earth Federation. However, Earth Federation law professionals must neither serve nor offer legal representation at lower levels of jurisdiction (state, county, national district or municipal levels, etc.) unless so qualified by licensure from the respective lower jurisdiction, as such representation might become breach of the full faith and credit clause of Article 14 of the Earth Constitution.

11. The Courts provided herein have the power to adopt local Rules consistent with the aforesaid high court rules and with the Earth Constitution, and with the other world legislation and provisions specified in Section 2. of this Act.

12. For the purposes of implementing this Act, the provisional World Parliament establishes a Standing Parliamentary Commission, of five M.P.’s of the provisional World Parliament having legal training and experience or evident global legal competence, all members of the Commission to be fully committed to carrying out the provisions of this Act. The six original members of this Standing Parliamentary Commission on World Courts may co-opt an additional five members, and have full authority to implement the provisions of this Act without further permission or directives from the provisional World Parliament, except in matters that are specifically reserved for decisions by the provisional World Parliament and to further legislation that the Parliament may enact. The said standing commission must further at all times carry on its work in ways not contrary to the provisions of the Earth Constitution.

A Bill for an Amendment World Legislative Act 06

Grassroots Regeneration and Family Planning

New Article 7., and re-number all subsequent articles to conform. Note: For simplicity and time savings, in unengrossed form below, the numeration omits the Act and Article Number. This may be included in an engrossed format during run-up to parliament session, or after parliament session.

7. Fourth Front: Global Grassroots Regeneration and Family Planning  for Rural and Urban Communities

Short Title: Fourth Front: Regeneration and Family Planning

{Add text to preamble:}]

Recognizing that the Constitution for the Federation of Earth is founded on the principle of Unity in Diversity for all mankind and on the principle of ecological integrity for our endangered planet Earth.

Recognizing that the Earth Constitution mandates “diminishing social differences” and treating every citizen with equal dignity (Article 1);

Recognizing that our current world system is in drastic “overshoot” in which the carrying capacity of the planet is radically diminished each year under the global ideology of untrammeled economic expansion and unlimited resource exploitation (cf. Catton, 1984);

Recognizing that the climate crisis caused by overshoot is extremely serious and requires urgent, effective, and dramatic initiatives to mitigate the cascading damage to the maximum extent possible (cf. Wallace-Wells 2019);

Recognizing that the Earth Constitution throughout emphasizes ecological restoration and protection of our planetary environment, and the preservation of the planet for future generations (cf. Martin 21, Chap.7);

Recognizing that the process of ecological restoration and protection requires deep changes in the present world system with respect to the abandoning of the fossil fuel economy and a major shift to regenerative, sustainable, locally based food production, harvesting, and distribution practices as the Earth Constitution affirms (Article 4.27-4.32).

Recognizing that Article 13 of the Constitution gives every citizen social, economic, and environmental rights to “remuneration sufficient to assure human dignity,” to “adequate housing,” “nutritious food supplies,” “adequate water” and “clean air”’;

Recognizing that the Constitution mandates to non-coercively “develop and implement means to control population growth in in relation to the life-support capacities of Earth” (Article 4.21), which is necessary for providing a quality of life within an ecologically sound environment for each person and for future generations;

Recognizing that intensive programs must be implemented to transform the fragmented, chaotic, and unjust world system into a world that is “a happy home” for all humanity (Articles 1 and 4);

Recognizing that the Earth Constitution mandates the creation the Earth Emergency Rescue Administration (EERA, Article 17.3.10.8). The present World Legislative Act may be considered an elaboration of part of the work of the EERA: to rescue the Earth before it is too late through global grassroots empowerment for regeneration and transformation.

The utter seriousness of planetary climate collapse requires worldwide mobilization to rescue nature and humanity as much as remains possible.  It requires a “global grassroots mobilization.” Such mobilizations have happened in history on a large scale when people have joined hands to respond to such threats as a great economic depression, a climate disaster, or a war-situation. Such a mobilization needs to happen regarding our planetary climate crisis.

However, neither psychologically nor politically is a top-down momentum possible for accomplishing this. Politically authoritarian principles are immoral and unacceptable. Freedom, empowering people within the framework of the common good of our planetary community, is the very essence of democracy. Psychologically, top-down methods generate resistance (both active and passive) in the governed and do not accomplish the needed transformations. 

The optimum situation requires integrating top-down (the necessity of governance to empower all levels of human flourishing beyond the smallest units such as families) and bottom up grassroots empowerment and community involvement. The global grassroots regenerative initiatives activate integrative methods to maximize the synergistic, regenerative effect of dealing with the planetary climate disaster.  Regenerative science is quite advanced and knows the chemistry of soils and the methods of preserving and enhancing soil, protecting against insect pests in non-toxic ways, and creating excellent results. At the same time, many indigenous and traditional cultures understand similar ways of enhancing soil and producing positive results through growing “complementary” crops together with plants that repel certain insects, etc.

 Regenerative scientists can learn from listening to locals and vice-versa. The secret is good human relationships and community spirit. Government must be a partner with people, not their supervisor and oppressor. It is in this spirit that the Provisional World Parliament is adopting this World Legislative Act to not only deal effectively with climate collapse but to enhance the community spirit and grassroots empowerment everywhere on our precious planet.

Enhancing planetary community spirit and grassroots empowerment is also essential to deal with the other “broad functions” mandated by the Earth Constitution such as protecting human rights, diminishing social differences, and ending war. For these reasons, the creation of these regenerative projects is foundational to the entire transformative spirit of the Earth Constitution.  Grassroots empowerment of the people of Earth is perhaps the most fundamental key to the Constitution’s goal of creating a peaceful, just, and sustainable planetary civilization.

 {Add Article 7 to this legislative act: WLA 06}

Article 7. We delegates of the Provisional World Parliament at its 15th Session hereby adopt this Global Grassroots Regenerative Development of Family Planning for Rural and Urban Communities.

Section 1. The Grassroots Regenerative Commissions: GRCRC and GRCUC

  1. These commissions are a major priority of the World Parliament and are funded as a significant and special budget item by the Parliament. They are a major part of the work of the EERA and organized as a major program within its auspices (Article 17.3.10.8). [The EERA might well also have programs dealing with eliminating weapons of mass destruction; dismantling the planetary war-system; working with multinational corporations to transition to a sustainable economy, etc.]
    • 1.1 The Earth Hour budgets allocated by the Parliament for the work of these commissions cover salaries (set by the World Civil Service Authority and World Financial Administration), operating costs, the costs of a worldwide publicity campaign explaining the necessity, urgency, and benefits of regenerative transformation, as well as stipends to local participants worldwide.
    • 1.2 The Commissions shall coordinate with Global People’s Assemblies (WLA 29). The Commissions may employ persons or accept volunteer workers from the Assemblies when these persons are qualified and beneficial to the work in a District. Very often political activism, as in the GPAs, spills over into environmental activism. The World Parliament encourages political to environmental connections.

2.  The stipends for participating in the regenerative programs herein outlined are in addition to the guaranteed annual income of World Legislative Act Number 42. To whatever degree that the resulting income exceeds the maximum allowed personal income of the Earth Federation, excess income converts either to credit points, immediately available, or is assigned to survivorship accounts to be distributed, according to the will of the participant.  The incentives for participation are for both community solidarity and income enhancement.

1.2.1 If feasible, the Payroll Department of the World Financial Administration shall recognize and compensate people participating in these programs at all levels through their secure voting ID identities created for the population within each World Electoral and Administrative District (World District, WEAD or WD).

1.2.2 The World Boundaries and Elections Administration shall assign a secure ID, even to persons under voting age [similar to the citizen identity number used in many countries today] that will be used for voting upon reaching the age of 18, and for straw votes between the age of 14 and 18. The World Parliament welcomes and encourages youth groups for regenerative transformation within both rural and urban environments [see the Charter of Environmental Rights and Responsibilities issued July 2021 by Children Now of Montreal].

1.2.3 Both Commissions created by this WLA shall hold to the highest standards of transparency, accountability, and integrity.  The World Parliament and World Executive may monitor world commissions at its discretion.  The Office of the World Ombudsmus may also monitor the Commissions [which will have representatives in every WEAD]. The Earth Federation may remove any person from their duties for cause. Any commissioner removed is entitled to representation by the World Ombudsmus in a hearing of the Public Bench. However, the Public Bench may indict and remand any person to the World Criminal Case Bench.

1.2.4 This act establishes a World Commission called the Grassroots Regenerative Commission for Rural Communities (GRCRC) as part of the EERA under the authority of the World Executive Cabinet. Like the World Executive Cabinet itself, these Commissions are ultimately accountable to the World Parliament.

1.2.5  The Commission composes of a representative from each of the 28 Departments of the World Administration named in Article 7.3, including one representative from any additional departments that the World Parliament creates.

1.2.6 Salaries for members of the Commission are the salary set by the World Civil Service Authority according to what they would normally make serving their home World Administrative Departments.

1.2.7 The Commission is itself a decision-making body regarding the fulfillment of its mission while maintaining complete transparency and accountability to the World Executive Council, the World Parliament, and the World Ombudsmus.

1.2.8 The Commission shall establish offices within the District Seat of each of the 1000 World Electoral Districts, and sub-offices as needed within each district.  In cases of largely or exclusively urban WEADs, the Commission shall operate in collaboration with the Global Regenerative Commission for Urban Communities (GRCUC), described below, or may not need to operate at all in some districts that are entirely urban.

1.2.9 This Act establishes a World Commission called the Grassroots Regenerative Commission for Urban Communities (GRCUC) according to the same rules used for establishing the GRCRC.

1.2.10 Qualifications for persons nominated and chosen for each commission by each Administrative Department are expertise in the areas of rural or urban regeneration respectively or expertise in respective traditional cultures, ways of cultivating social harmony, or forms of intercultural integration.  

1.2.11 The Executive Cabinet shall overview the selection process for these commissions to ensure that both the rural and the urban commissions compose of at least 50% women. Commissions shall include at least 5 members from each continental division of our planet.

1.2.12 The job of these global Commissions is to establish, oversee, communicate with, educate, empower, and provide the means for the World District Offices to operate and to inspire within their districts a truly regenerative and participatory transition to complete planetary sustainability.

Section 2.   Grassroots Regenerative Commission District Offices

2.1  The Grassroots Regenerative Commission District Offices locate in each World District Seat. A committee of 5 District Regeneration Officers, at least 3 of whom are women, shall hire, train, and supervise a team of District Liaisons to work directly with the people of the district in the process of conversion and transition to a regenerative system of production and distribution.

2.2   Insofar as a world district has both urban and rural dimensions, each world district will have both GRCRC and a GRCUC offices. If a district is entirely rural or entirely urban this need not be the case.

2.3  In cases where there are two District Offices in a WEAD, each office will choose one person to be liaison to the other office within its district. The purpose here is that the two offices within each World District shall cooperate, communicate, and not pursue initiatives apart from the other office that might interfere with the process of regenerative development across all aspects of human endeavor. 

2.4  In some cases it may be appropriate for a District Office member to be a member of both offices within a WED (but not a member of two offices from different WEADs).   Any such bridge-person would receive the normal salary and not two salaries.

2.5. General world district elections shall elect the Global Grassroots Regenerative commissioners from among qualified world district resident candidates for five–year terms, without limits on additional terms. If the respective World District Elections Commission has not yet organized successful general world district elections, then the people participating in World District organization and operation shall elect the district commissioners from among the respective qualified world district residents. During that interim stage of a World District, the World District Elections Commission shall hold annual by-elections for Global Grassroots Regenerative Commissioners. Interim commissioners are without limits on additional terms.

Section 3.  Operations of the District Offices

3.1  The offices within each world district compose of persons who speak the primary language of that WEAD.  If any other languages are spoken by at least 10% of the population of the WEAD, the offices shall include members or Office Liaisons who speak these other languages fluently.

3.2   Qualification for District Officers and Liaisons within each world district is familiarity with the customs, culture, and practices of the groups within the WD.  Part of officer responsibility is to interface with the local people, to learn more about their thoughts and practices, and to show them the substantial benefits of regenerative practices without their having to abandon much of their traditions and cultural practices. [This is an essential feature of global grassroots empowerment.]

3.3  The purpose of the Grassroots Regenerative Commission [deleted word] and District Offices is, therefore, grassroots empowerment not top-down imposition of what locals might perceive as alien or authoritarian requirements. Grassroots Regenerative Commissioners shall inspire people everywhere to transform human civilization into one world of peace, prosperity, justice, and sustainability. [This cannot happen without global grassroots empowerment.]

3.4   District Officers and Liaisons shall establish positive relationships of communication and trust with local peoples.

3.5   District Officers and Liaisons may establish positive relationships especially with those who are accorded local respect and authority or governance patterns.  In India, for example, this would likely involve working with the Panchayat, the council of five elders and local self-government that operates in many rural village communities. Liaisons may also establish a positive relationship with the teachers in the schools, and other community leaders or influencers, to mobilize community participation in the regenerative transformative project, from which, ultimately, everyone (including future generations) will benefit.

3.6   The Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) shall train world district officers and liaisons in the sciences of regenerative principles and practices for urban or rural settings respectively. The Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP) shall train world district officers and liaisons in cultural sensitivity and in communicating these principles and practices effectively to local communities. Until the IGPWP is operating, the World Parliament assigns responsibility for training to the Graduate School of World Problems, the Earth Constitution Institute and the Earth Federation Institute. These three shall coordinate, as feasible, with the respective world district offices of IGPWP, GRCRC and GRCUC and the World Civil Service Administration, to certify candidates for the respective offices.

Section 4.  The Role of Women

4.1  Women often form the backbone of a family. They often manage the household, play a major role in the raising children, and represent a fundamental component of community stability.

4.2  Since at least 3 of the five District Officers and Liaisons will be women, this can be helpful in building the trust and confidence with women in the locality.

4.3   A model for this engagement with and empowerment of women can be found in the Development Organization for the Rural Poor (DORP) in Bangladesh (http://dorpbd.org/).  Their process includes the creation of a “Mother’s Parliament” at the local level in which women participating in the program meet to discuss issues and problems they confront in their local communities.  How such empowerment of women can be achieved may vary in different cultures in WEADs around the world, but such empowerment of women and girls, including education and reasonable control over their own lives, is a main goal of the transformative, regenerative process.

Section 5. Population issues.

5.1   If done well, local populations will respond positively to this global initiative project and the peoples’ response will truly have the character of global grassroots transformative initiatives.  If accomplished worldwide, it will increase human solidarity and sense that we are all living on this planet together as our common home that we need to regenerate and restore to the maximum extent still possible in the face of the extensive damage already done.

5.2  Part of this global solidarity in protecting our planetary home will need to involve wide recognition of the imperative for population control as mandated by the Earth Constitution and many experts concerning the carrying capacity of Earth (ibid., Catton, Chap. 9).  Conditions in which children are deemed necessary to help labor on a farm or for other reasons (such as the social status of men esteemed for the number of children they have fathered) will be rapidly eliminated by the regeneration program itself, and such social programs as a guaranteed minimum income or stipends for participation in the regeneration effort can help people understand that having many children is no longer necessary.

5.2 (Reserved.)

5.3 World district regenerative commissions shall provide resources to families to improve pre-natal, peri-natal and post-natal health for entire families, but particularly for expectant mothers, and infants up to about 5 years of age. Regenerative commissions shall encourage families to limit their size to two children, particularly by ensuring health education and availability of birth control.  New families participating in these programs will make an agreement (the wording of which may vary according to culture, language, etc.) to limit their children to 2. Already existing larger families may participate in the program with the agreement not to have any more children.

5.4. Regenerative commissions shall ordinarily issue stipends to mothers with dependent children in the household.  However, in cases where the Regenerative Commission finds that the father or another caretaker would be more appropriate, due to incapacity or absence of the mother, the family is still eligible for stipend.  The Regenerative Commission in these cases shall issue the stipend to another adult family member.

5.5. In case of disagreement as to who is the responsible family member, litigants may request a hearing in the respective World District Juvenile Case Bench [In the case of Development Organization for the Rural Poor (DORP), mentioned above as a model, the stipend to the family goes to the mother as the one more likely to use the money for the benefit of the children and the family as a whole.] Such limitation of the number of children to 2 is easily achieved given the wide range of inexpensive, reversible, and effective birth-control methods available, and the simultaneous global effort for the education of women and girls that will be going on concurrently with the regeneration programs. The Earth Federation will make a range of simple birth-control options available without cost. [Men, of course, also need education and resources concerning not only the dignity and need for respect of the rights of women and girls,  but also the methods of birth control, the need for a planetary program in this regard, and spirit of grassroots community solidarity.]

5.6. The Regenerative Commission must not encourage abortions based upon the sex of a fetus.

However, a regenerative commission may support abortions on a case-by-case basis, as defined in the Rights of Women (WLA68). This Article does not criminalize abortions. However, world district residents may charge members of a regenerative commission with violation of EC Article 12.1 (equal right with no discrimination on grounds of …sex…) for hearing in the Human Rights Bench of the respective World District Court, if a commissioner is engaging in promotion of sex-based feticide.

Section 6. Urban Regeneration.

  1. The organizational parameters, procedures, and requirements described in Articles 1-5 will be followed for the Grassroots Regenerative Commission for Urban Communities (GRCUC).
  2. Urban regeneration requires a knowledge-base and modus operandi that often differs considerably from rural regeneration. Urban communities need to mobilize in mutual support groups, to overcome the unique problems of urban living that often involve access to clean water, sanitation facilities, medical and health facilities, optimal and equitable distribution of resources, organized gangs or other criminal activities, etc.
  3. A qualification for GRCUC Commissioners and Liaisons is extensive knowledge in the unique problems and concerns of urban communities and the ways in which community mobilization can address these problems.
  4. One clear area of overlap between rural and urban regeneration is the “green cities” movement that began in the 1970s and has spread to many cities around the world.  Abandoned lots, rooftops, terraces, former rail lines, any unused urban areas can be planted, cultivated, and turned “green,” thus improving the air quality of the city, the ambience, the food-supply, as well as community spirit. Expertise in how to facilitate this will clearly be part of the knowledge base of Commissioners and Liaisons.

Section 6. Rural Regeneration.

  1. The organizational parameters, procedures, and requirements described in Articles 1-5 will be followed for the Grassroots Regenerative Commission for Rural Communities (GRCRC).

2. Rural regeneration requires a knowledge-base and modus operandi that often differs considerable from urban regeneration. Rural communities need to mobilize in mutual support groups, to overcome the unique problems of rural living that often involve access to clean water, sanitation facilities, medical and health facilities, optimal and equitable distribution of resources.

3. A qualification for GRCRC Commissioners and Liaisons is extensive knowledgeable in the unique problems and concerns of rural communities and the ways in which community mobilization can address these problems.

Section 7.

Semi-urban or semi-rural areas may require a blend of the methods and community action-plans rural and urban.  GRCRC and GRCUC commissioners, liaisons and world district residents shall [delete word] decide details in actual practice with the larger purpose kept in mind as described in the Preamble and Postscript to this World Legislative Act.

            Section 8. Budget

The World Parliament shall assign a separate budget to this program of the EERA (for the initial operation of the Regenerative Commissions) that shall be calculated on the basis of 5 year plans and renewed or revised at the end of each 5 years period. Specific figures in Earth Hour units may be calculated by a PWP Commission and introduced at the 16th session in the coming year.

Section 9. Postscript. With the Earth Constitution as a framework and design for empowerment, the people of Earth must engage a global grassroots mobilization to regenerate and restore our planet, its livability and capacity to support a flourish life in a flourishing natural world. The Commissions established by this Act derive from a mandate and action-plan that runs the length of the Earth Constitution.

Amendments to WLA 10:  World Energy System Review

(Summary: Revision of Act 10 creating the Hydrogen World Energy System Authority, to go from fossil energy to Hydrogen energy, including new research and scientific discoveries on zero point energy or free energy.)

Provisional World Parliament

December 10-12, 2021, New Delhi, India

Third bill Proposal from

Venezuela delegation [States are origins of delegates—not pleni-potentiaries.]

Short title: Regenerative World Energy System

Add to the preamble:

Considering that the mass-energy of the entire material world has been found to be the result of a very specific relationship or gradient in the quantum structure of the space-time vacuum;

Considering that thanks to this we can design technologies that reproduce the same dynamics in a laboratory to extract significant amounts of energy from this fundamental field;

Considering that with the energy available in just one cm3 of space, we can power the Earth at its current rate for billions of years;

Considering that the energy of the vacuum is everywhere, so it is not necessary to transport it. This means that there might be no more large storage tanks;

Whereas the introduction of zero point energy devices will immediately curb the continuous emission of carbon dioxide, and we can also implement carbon dioxide sequestration initiatives to stabilize global temperatures and restore normal ocean pH levels. The repair of holes in the ozone layers of our stratosphere becomes feasible. Also the revegetation of eroded and desertified regions of the Earth and the environment of the tropical forest using, for example, desalinated water from our oceans and gravitational alteration of certain waterways. Likewise, the construction of roads and houses off the planet’s surface as a result of gravitational control. As well as the colonization of other planets, so as not to have “all the eggs in a single basket”, since the Earth, like any other planet, is exposed to multiple events (asteroids, solar storms, etc.);

Considering the enormous potential for power generation to drive all our technological needs for electricity, heating, cooling, communications, etc. in an extremely inexpensive, endless and clean way; of transport by means of the gravitational control; in health and well-being, thanks to new resonance technologies; etc.;

Considering that it is still a great possibility, to take advantage of solar and wind energy to avoid carbon dioxide emissions and to avoid pollutants, now that we have much closer images of the sun and the behavior of solar energy, the technology we have could be improved by imitating that behavior of energy;

Considering that it has also been possible to observe that there is a photon energy that is almost imperceptible to the human eye and that it can be observed both at night and during the day, this is due to a photon belt that surrounds the Earth. This energy, if you know how to channel it, might regenerate the ozone layer of our planet. These studies could be deepened and the technology to “capture” that energy could be created for regeneration that could even be used in the future to be prepared in the event of an “accident” that could generate this transition of change from fossil energy to energy from hydrogen or free energy;

Considering that the greatest source of hydrogen is water: To “create” water, it is essential to maintain biodiversity in the world’s jungle areas. So one of the most urgent things would be to “disintegrate”, not “destroy”, the nuclear energy that we have on Earth, to avoid the radioactive contamination that threatens it and to reforest the jungle areas, conserve, preserve and stimulate survival of endangered species in order to maintain biodiversity and continue to create water in the most humid and tropical areas of the Earth from that biodiversity;

Rename the Hydrogen World Energy System Authority to Regenerative World Energy System Authority

  1. The Hydrogen World Energy System Authority is modified, expanding its name to the –  Regenerative World Energy System Authority.

2.6. SIXTH TASK:

This authority is ordered to initiate the study of zero point energy technologies or free energy, magnetic energy and any other type of sustainable, regenerative and economical energy.

RE-NUMBER original 2.6. as 2.7.

2.7 This Act does not limit the WHESA tasks to those defined herein. WHESA may define and develop other tasks as needed.

4. FUNDING: Strikethrough : Initially, WHESA will be activated as soon as the equivalent of a minimum of &350,000 (approximately ten million 1987 U.S. dollars) is obtained from energy companies and/or philanthropic organizations, or national or sub-national governments, or as soon as the world economic system is capable of allocating the adequate funds.

Replace with: 4.1. World Parliament allocates &10,000,000 (&100 lakh) annually for the provisional work team to pay for salaries not to exceed the maximum income limit. World Parliament allocates &100,000,000 (&10 crore) annually for material and equipment.*

*[“&” is the World Parliament approved symbol for the Earth Federation unit of credit and currency. One thousand Earth Hours is equivalent to the median allowed yearly income—twice the Earth Federation living wage. Using this metric greatly simplifies envisioning salarial costs and expenses for any Earth Federation programme.]

4.2. Two and a half per cent of the net income of each energy company, including energy mining, transportation, storing processing (to fuel and/or electricity), and marketing companies – both public and private that take part in the transformation process.

2.  _________________ is appointed as the Chair of the Regenerative World Energy System.

3. The following people are appointed to form part of this work team.

____________________,___________________,___________________

4. The Regenerative World Energy System Authority shall present a first report within six months.

Eugenia Almand, Secretary,  Provisional World Parliament

Amendments for WLAs 13, 31, and 54

Amendment proposals for World Legislative Act Number 13:

WORLD PEACE ACT

[Recommendation from Venezuela delegation]

Add new clause in Article 2.14 of World Legislative Act Number 13:

This Act prohibits (dishonors and does not recognize any requirement for) payments of royalties for the former sale, purchase, lease or use of WMD intellectual property. This Act prohibits (dishonors and does not recognize any requirement for) payments of royalties for the former sale, purchase, lease or use of WMD property. Claims for prohibited royalties are unlawful (world class 1 felony). Due to the severity of this issue, world courts may determine that the civil forfeiture law applies to any case arising from this provision. Due to severity, this amendment provision has immediate effect of force, upon adoption by the Provisional World Parliament. As WMD intellectual properties revert to public domain, World Courts must not grant any compensations on claims of eminent domain compensation.

Add to clause of Article 3. Responsibility:

Decisions of the Appellate Bench of the World Court are final, unless overruled by 2/3 absolute majority vote of World Parliament in joint session. [GTM]

Add to clause of Article 3.2.  Nuclear power continental federations (such as India), nuclear states and former nuclear states may also make regular reports and regular recommendations to the Board of Trustees of the World Disarmament Agency. The World Disarmament Agency shall receive reports and recommendations regardless of whether or not the respective state is a member state of the Earth Federation. [EAQA]

Actualization Protocol for the Earth Federation

Parliament Resolution for an Actualization Protocol

Whereas, the Preamble of the Earth Constitution envisions a comprehensive transformation of our world system from one of fragmentation, war, and conflict to one or peace with justice; it declares the principle of unity in diversity as “the basis for a new age when war shall be outlawed and peace prevail; when the earth’s total resources shall be equitably used for human welfare”;

Whereas, the Article 1 of the Constitution details this comprehensive transformation across fundamental dimensions of life on Earth: (1) ending war and disarming the nations, (2) protecting universal human rights, (3) diminishing social differences on a global scale, (4) regulating the use of world resources, (5) protecting the ecological fabric of life, and addressing all other global issues that are beyond the scope of nation-states.

Whereas, in past discussions of the Earth Constitution and its capacity to effect these comprehensive transformations there has been some confusion concerning the stages articulated in Articles 17, 19, and elsewhere,

Whereas, there has been the inevitable criticism of some details embedded in the Earth Constitution since it was proclaimed ‘finished’ at Troia, Portugal, 1991,

We delegates of the Provisional World Parliament at its 15th session, meeting at New Delhi,

Hereby affirm and declare this Actualization Protocol as official Parliament policy.

Article 1  The five broad phases of the actualization process are the following:

1.1  Phase 1: Provisional World Government: jump starting, laying foundations in the PWP and WEADs, working for ratification.

1.2 Phase 2. First Operative Stage: legitimizing and activating the transformational infrastructure while addressing fundamental world problems.

1.3 Phase 3:  Progressive Constitutional Amendments and a World Constitutional Convention (Article 18): refining the transformational instrument named the Constitution for the Federation of Earth.

1.4 Phase 4:  Second Operative Stage: demilitarization and planetary conversion to a world peace and sustainability system.

1.5 Phase 5: Final Operative Stage: actualizing the transformed world system premised on Peace, Justice, Sustainability, and universal Human Dignity.

Article 2.   Provisional World Government

 2.1  Article 19 outlines the first phase of the actualization process. It is the phase we have been in approximately since the second constituent assembly in 1977.

2.2  Article 19.1 and 19.2 mandates the setting up of at least 10 fundamental commissions to facilitate both ratification of the Constitution and the jump-stating of emerging world government under the Constitution. These 10 fundamental commissions form a fundamental force behind the emerging Earth Federation System. Two of these are the “World Development Commission” and “World Problems Commission,” which begin the process of addressing the many world problems that are beyond the capacity of nation-states to address. The mandate is clear:  World Government in its first phase must begin addressing real solutions to global problems under the authority of the Earth Constitution.

2.3.  Article 19 sets up the Ratification Commission as a global network of persons promoting the ratification of the Constitution according to the criteria set out in Article 17.  This Commission is to operate until the full operative stage of the Earth Federation Government is reached as defined in Article 17.5.  This Commission shall be a major component in the transition to the full operative stage of the Earth Federation as mandated by Article 19.2.1.

 2.4.    Article 19.3 mandates setting up, and holding sessions of, the Provisional World Parliament (PWP). This process has been going on since the first session of the Parliament in Brighton, England, in 1982, and has today reached the current 15th session in New Delhi, India. This 15th session of Parliament commends the recent initiation of a permanent offices for the PWP here in New Delhi and mandates that the PWP continue to develop an enduring Secretariat, Offices, and the infrastructure to move forward with actualizing all the commissions and processes required by Article 19.

 2.5.  The first phase also includes the development of World Electoral and Administrative Districts (World Districts, WEADs or WDs) and elections within those districts to the House of Peoples and the House of Counselors (19.2.2).  This 15th session of the Provisional World Parliament mandates that the World Parliament and Constitution Association (WCPA) and Earth Constitution Institute (ECI), the organizations sponsoring and guarding the Earth Constitution in this first phase of the actualization process  activate a World Elections Commission within each WEAD (using WCPA membership where feasible) as each of these districts is defined. The Parliament directs that these organizations cooperate with the relevant WCPA-ECI officers to further define the districts, secure reliable voter IDs, and begin the process of elections to the House of Peoples and House of Counsellors.

 2.6 Defining these WEADs and securing voter registrations opens up two of the three options for entering the First Operative Stage of the Earth Federation Government as outline in Article 17.3. One option is elections conducted within at least 100 WEADs (with no nations having ratified). The second option provides for elections within 50 WEADs (with at least 10 nations having ratified). The third option is ratification by a minimum of 25 nation-states (and no WEADs), each of which conducts a referendum of its population to secure initiating the Earth Federation. 

Article 3. Phase Two: First Operative Stage as ratified under Article 17.3.

3.1  Phase two initiates virtually all the essential features of the Earth Federation as defined by the Constitution: the three houses of the World Parliament, the Presidium and Executive Cabinet, the World Supreme Court, the Enforcement System, the Ombudsmus, the Civil Service Administration (and other agencies outlined in Article 8).  It calls explicitly for a World Disarmament Administration (WDA), an Earth Emergency Rescue Administration (EERA), an integrated global energy system, a World University System, a World Corporations Office, the World Service Corps, and a World Ocean and Seabeds Administration.

3.2   The Provisional World Parliament affirms the absolute need for the activation of the infrastructure of the Earth Federation government to form Phase Two of the process.  The world of 2021 is the terrible crisis perceived by the framers of the Earth Constitution magnified 10-fold.  The world cannot wait much longer to activate the key institutions that can effectively address our lethal circumstances or the progressive deterioration of our planet may become unstoppable leading to the death of all or most higher forms of life. 

3.3   The Earth Constitution lays out the basic template, the design, for human beings to take some control of their destiny by protecting their planetary home and eliminated WMDs.  Phase 2 may well be the crucial step that secures human survival.  The Constitution requires ratification as it is (with no quibbling over words or debating changes) because of the urgency of our situation. Possible changes are reserved for Phase 3.

3.4   (Reserved). 

3.5   The Commission for Legislative Review shall continue to operate an Office for Proposed Constitutional Amendments or Revisions.   This office shall record and correlate all incoming suggestions for changes in the Earth Constitution from the people and nations of the Earth.

3.6     During Phase 2, the World Disarmament Commission (WDC, Enforcement Commission) will not only accept the role of dismantling nuclear weapons. It will also further prepare the infrastructure, planning, and protocols for worldwide military disarmament.  Under these protocols, nations will work together in planned de-escalation and reduction of investment, planning, production, deployment, and maintenance of military weapons and organizations.   The WDC will work with the nations to so that this process in not only completely in place by the inauguration of Phase 3 but may also be either completed or well under way during the First Operative Stage.  The significant progress in the demilitarization of some or all Earth Federation nations during the First Operative Stage is a goal of the WDC.

Within the context of the emergence of the Earth Federation, reason demands that we recognize that functions of world disarmament are functions of the Enforcement System and World Judiciary under the Earth Constitution, and not a matter of rhetoric, moralization or treaty. Over 14 sessions of Provisional World Parliament, the general guidelines for an integrating systems approach to the issues of military armaments and militarization have been adopted, including nearly all aspects of the militarization process. The major branches of the Earth Federation, including particularly the Enforcement System, the World Ombudsmus and the World Judiciary, do not operate in isolation from the process of military disarmament. Rather, a major function of these branches of world government is to ensure world military disarmament without encroaching on civil liberties. Therefore, the major concern of the World Disarmament Commission is not to cajole opposing nations, nor to plead for international treaties, but rather to approach world military disarmament and law enforcement through this universal integrating systems approach.

 3.7.    In conformance with EC 17.3.9., ratifying nations retain half the amount of their last military budget before ratification for their own use and shall pay the other half to the Earth Federation Funding Corporation (EFFC), earmarked for the World Economic Development Organization (WEDO).  WEDO and the Emergency Earth Rescue Administration (EERA) shall cooperate to address the world climate crisis.  Nations may pay in national currencies or in-kind. Payments are eligible for scheduled remission in the Earth Hour credit and currency system to equitable citizen accounts of the respective nation, in conformance to the provisions of Earth Constitution Article 17.6. and the provisions of World Legislative Act Number 07, for the EFFC.

Article 4.  Phase 3.  Amendments and/or a Constitutional Convention.

 4.1   Article 18 specifies the procedure for amending the Earth Constitution. It also mandates a Constitutional Convention within 10 years after Phase 2 begins in order the reexamine the Constitution as a whole. Such Constitutional Conventions are required at least every 20 years after that (Article 18.4).

4.2   This Parliament affirms that with the Earth in the process of becoming organized for human and ecological peace, justice, and flourishing (under Phase Two), the citizens of Earth will be in a much better position than now to know what changes to the Constitution are necessary or optimal.  In addition, the citizens of Earth will have a legal and legitimate mechanism for making such changes (namely, the World Parliament) and contention over proposed changes will be taken out of the realm of speculation, ideology, and wishful thinking (where it is now) and placed in a meaningful legal context premised on the common good of humanity and future generations.

4.3  Such changes to the Constitution as Phase 3 of the actualization process will undoubtedly make the Earth Constitution even more persuasive and compelling for the people of Earth who are not part of the initial Federation of Phase Two.   Phase 3, therefore, will facilitate further ratification and likely lead to a rapid ratification of the Constitution thereby actualizing Phase Four.

Article 5.  Phase Four.   The Second Operative Stage of the Earth Federation.

5.1   The Second Operative Stage is required under Article 17.4 to continue to establish and activate the remaining offices and features defined by the Earth Constitution. It also calls for the U.N. to integrate into the Earth Federation.

5.2   The Second Operative Stage is also required ensure further competent enforcement of domains of planetary authority specified in Article 4, including restatement of declaration that the oceans and seabeds and polar caps under the sovereignty of the people of Earth and subject to governance by the World Parliament.

 5.3  This session of the PWP, affirms, that a crucial feature of the Phase 4 is disarmament.  Under the supervision of the World Disarmament Commission (WDC) the nations already belonging to the federation are required to disarm from both WMDs and conventional military armaments and the nations now joining the Earth Federation are also so required.

 5.4   Since the WDC will have long since established a secure and equitable process for disarmament (or may even have achieved significant disarmament among Earth Federation Nations), the process of completing the disarmament of the Federation nations and the new nations now joining will be smooth, secure, impartial, and equitable.

5.5    In conformance with EC 17.4.7., ratifying nations retain half the amount of their last military budget before ratification for their own use and shall pay the other half to the Earth Federation Funding Corporation (EFFC), earmarked for the World Economic Development Organization (WEDO).  WEDO and the Emergency Earth Rescue Administration (EERA) shall cooperate to address the world climate crisis.  Nations may pay in national currencies or in-kind. Payments are eligible for scheduled remission in the Earth Hour credit and currency system to equitable citizen accounts of the respective nation, in conformance to the provisions of Earth Constitution Article 17.6. and the provisions of World Legislative Act Number 07, for the EFFC.

 5.6   World Parliament announces transparent and public process of disarmament -worldwide so that non-federation nations will see that this general liberation from the burden of militarism is occurring and that a peaceful and prosperous future of humanity is indeed being secured.  This will likely become a major attractor for the remaining nations of the world to join the Federation, making the Earth Federation truly planetary under Phase 5.

Article 6.  Phase 5.   The Full Operative Stage of World Government.

6.1    The full operative stage involves completing and filling out the full set of agencies and institutions begun during the Second Operative Stage.  This stage completes the actualization process of the unity in diversity of humanity within a system premised on universal human dignity announced in the Preamble to the Constitution.

6.2    This 15th session of the Provisional World Parliament affirms the entire process through its 5 phases as the official and legitimate protocol for establishing the Federation of Earth.  The transition has been made from a global fragmentation with its war-system, injustice system, and ecologically destructive system to the holism described in the Preamble.

Bill for an act:   World Legislative Act Number 68

Statute on the Rights of Women

PREAMBLE

WHEREAS, the Constitution for the Federation of Earth was designed to protect the inalienable rights of all people, promote unity in diversity, and achieve gender equality; and 

WHEREAS, women remain in a state of second-class citizenship in much of the world, despite the progress made in some democratic nations on the issue of gender equality; and 

WHEREAS, the inherent dignity, innate rights, personal sovereignty, and physical safety of women and girls has yet to be attained in many nations of the world; and 

WHEREAS, the sanctity of the mother-child relationship is often violated in nations which give legal and cultural preference to the rights of men; and

WHEREAS, the rights of women are key to establishing universal human rights. 

WE, the Delegates of the Fifteenth Session of the Provisional World Parliament, do hereby enact the following Statute on the Rights of Women: 

ARTICLE 1: Definitions

1.1      Women are defined as adult female members of the human family, including persons identified as female at birth, persons who undergo female gender change surgery, and persons who self-identify as female. Girls are defined as females under the age of eighteen.

1.2      Children’s Rights are defined as set forth in WLA 27, which generally guarantees all children safe guardianship, healthcare, education, a minimum standard of living, and freedom of thought, expression, and assembly.

1.3      Education is defined as set forth in WLA 26, which generally guarantees all children the right to an education and addresses the discrimination and deficiencies in the education of female students in parts of the world.  

1.4      Human Trafficking is defined as set forth in WLA 43, which generally prohibits the trafficking of all persons, especially women and girls, via transport, kidnapping, deception, recruitment, and coercion for the purposes of sexual exploitation and forced labor.

ARTICLE 2: Status of Women 

2.1       Gender equality has yet to be achieved around the world. Women and girls are routinely discriminated against and lack innate personal freedoms due to patriarchal religious traditions, misogynist customs, sexist laws, and institutional/structural barriers. The United Nations Economic and Social Council’s Commission on the Status of Women 2021 Agreed Conclusions contains a dire summary of the current status of women, and those conclusions are incorporated herein by reference. 

2.2       Women commonly experience the following limitations on their Freedom:

2.2.1    Women and girls are forced into marriage against their will. Even where laws exist to prohibit forced marriage, those laws are often ignored or unenforced.

               2.2.2    Women are denied access to family planning services and birth control.

2.2.3    Women are often forced to carry a pregnancy to term, even in the case of rape or incest.

2.2.4    In cultures where women are still viewed as the property of male family members, women are forced to obey and be subservient to male members of the family.

2.3       Women commonly experience the following limitations on their Civil Rights:

2.3.1    Although a women’s right to an education exists in most countries, they may be denied the same level of education as males. In some cultures, women and girls are threatened with violence if they attend school.

2.3.2    Although a women’s right to vote exists in most countries, they often are threatened with violence if they do vote.

2.3.3    Women have yet to be full participants in the public sphere. They do not hold a proportionate share of the positions of authority in government and the judiciary. They also are underrepresented in legislatures.

2.3.4    In cultures where women are still viewed as the property of male family members, women lack the right to own property, to divorce, or obtain custody of children. 

2.4       Women commonly experience the following limitations on their Economic Rights:

            2.4.1    Women have yet to be full participants in the private business sphere. They do not hold a proportionate share of the positions of leadership and authority. They also own and manage fewer companies.

2.4.2    Women are routinely paid less than men and do not advance in their careers at the same rate as men.

               2.4.3   Women often suffer sexual harassment and abuse in the workplace. The recent

“Me Too” movement helped expose this rampant problem.

2.4.4    Employment benefits rarely accommodate the birth of a child. Unpaid family leave forces women to quickly return to work, depriving both mother and child of the time needed to become physically healthy, emotionally bond, and prosper.

   2.4.5    Women disproportionately take on the role of caregiver to children and elder parents, which adds to the income disparity between men and women.

2.4.6    As a result of these and other economic injustices, more women live in poverty than men.

2.5     Women commonly experience the following violations of their Sovereignty and Security: 

2.5.1    Gender-based abuse is the world’s most prevalent form of human rights violation, and domestic violence is the most common form of gender abuse. The World Health Organization 2021 Violence Against Women Fact Sheet estimates that one in three women suffers abuse (including rape and death), at the hands of a domestic partner. Likely, this statistic is low due to lack of reporting.

2.5.2    Girls suffer along with their mothers. The UNICEF 2020 Global Status Report on Violence Against Children states that one in two children is violently and/or sexually attacked before reaching adulthood. The World Health Organization 2020 Violence Against Children Fact Sheet estimates that over one billion children are physically or sexually abused. In the United States, statistics show that one in four girls is sexually abused, usually by someone they know and often by a family member. Likely, these statistics are low due to lack of reporting.

2.5.3    In some cultures, women and girls are forced to suffer the horror of genital mutilation. Even where laws exist to prohibit genital mutilation, those laws are often ignored or unenforced.

2.5.4    Throughout history, rape has been used as a weapon of war, particularly during ethnic and religious conflicts. Today, rape continues as a form of psychological warfare that violates women and literally spreads the seed of the attacking force.

2.5.6    The murder of women and female infanticide is a growing problem worldwide. This category of abuse includes honor killings and the preference for boy babies in certain cultures.

ARTICLE 3: Women’s Rights

3.1       Women’s Rights are the very foundation of human rights, since the human family cannot progress absent the full equality of women. The Earth Constitution was designed to protect the rights of all people and it is based on the core belief that unity in diversity is required in order to build an equitable and just world. Women’s Rights include all rights guaranteed under the Earth Constitution and in World Legislative Acts.

3.2       In the realm of Freedom, Women’s Rights also include:

3.4.5    The right to paid emergency leave to care for a sick child or parent, the amount and duration of which will be determined by the Commission on Women’s Rights established in Article 5 of this statute.

3.5       In the realm of Sovereignty and Security, Women’s Rights also include:

               3.5.1    The right to be physically safe and secure at all times. 

3.5.2    The right to easily obtain restraining orders issued by an Earth Federation Agency tasked with protecting women against violent domestic partners.

3.5.3    The right to easily obtain sole custody of children who are physically or sexually abused by domestic partners.

3.5.4    If the victim of physical or sexual assault, a woman has the right to receive free mental health services and financial assistance. She also has the right to consult with an Ombudsman in advance of any hearing or trial related to the assault, and the right to provide a victim impact statement to the court. 

ARTICLE 4: Advancement and Enforcement of Women’s Rights

4.1       All Earth Federation agencies will consider Women’s Rights a paramount goal and include Women’s Rights as a separate objective when seeking unity in diversity. 

4.2       To lessen and eventually eliminate the power differential between men and women, the various elected bodies of the Earth Constitution – the Presidium, House of Nations, House of Peoples, and House of Counsellors – will strive to identify and nominate qualified women representatives. Earth Federation agencies also will strive to identify and appoint qualified women for leadership positions.

4.3       The Enforcement System under the Earth Constitution will take positive steps to protect and enforce Women’s Rights.

4.4       The Earth Federation shall provide, beginning immediate redress to women and girls for any violation of the rights enumerated and referenced by this statute. The World Ombudsmus shall take positive steps to prioritize the defense of any woman whose rights have been violated and to prosecute any violation of those rights. In all cases of physical or sexual assault against a woman, the Office of the Ombudsmus shall assist the victim in seeking restitution for the injuries she sustained.  

4.5       Earth Federation courts and agencies shall give due weight to the views of the mother and child when dealing with custody conflicts.

4.6       Women and girls who are victims of trafficking, have the right to receive long-term care, including access to healthcare, social services, and education. Earth Federation and member states shall provide services regardless of whether the victims are nationals or residents of the country in which they find themselves. The World Bench for Juvenile Cases shall facilitate the return of trafficked girls to their country of origin or appropriate foster care. 

ARTICLE 5: Commission on Women’s Rights

5.1       The Provisional World Parliament hereby forms a Commission on Women’s Rights to be composed of members from around the world. The Commission’s mailing address is the Peace Pentagon in Independence, Virginia, where the Earth Constitution Institute is headquartered.

5.3       The Commission on Women’s Rights shall study and adopt policies and programs that educate the public on the status of women.

5.4       The Commission on Women’s Rights shall research and update statistics on the abuse of women, sexual abuse of children, and the trafficking of women and girls.

5.5       The Commission on Women’s Rights may encourage international and interfaith events, such as a “Global Mother’s Day” and a “Peace Congress of Women,” as suggested in the Mother’s Day Proclamation composed in 1872 by Julia Ward Howe.

5.6       The Commission on Women’s Rights shall report its deliberations and findings to upcoming sessions of the World Parliament and adjunct agencies of the Earth Federation.

A Bill for an Act: World Legislative Act Number 72

World District Standards

Whereas, the Earth Constitution has provisions for the delineation and operation of world electoral and administrative districts, specifically in Earth Constitution Article Sections:  2.4., 2.5., 5.3., 8.3., 9.1., 17.1., 17.3., 17.4., 17.5., 19.2.2., and 19.3. of the Earth Constitution. These sections suggest a standard structure for the world districts;

Whereas, prior legislation of the World Parliament has adopted world legislation giving additional standard structure to the world electoral and administrative districts, specifically provisions in World Legislative Acts 05, 11, 26, 29, 31, 54, 63, and 67 of the body of world legislation;

Whereas, Earth Constitution Article Section 13.16 states that a prime Directive Principle of Earth Federation is “encouragement for cultural diversity, encouragement for decentralized administration.”;

Whereas, science and philosophy show that self-actualizing and self-governing systems ( including the galaxies, the star systems, the planetary systems, as well as living things) produce themselves and operate in accordance with fractal mathematical processes that render the structures “as above, so below”;

As an adequately defined structure and function for world districting is essential for the provisional and operative stages of the Earth Federation;

This 15th session of World Parliament, meeting December 2021 in New Delhi, India, hereby adopts this standard structure and procedure for founding and operating world electoral and administrative districts.

  1. For simplicity, people and world legislation may refer to world electoral and administrative districts with the term “world district “, or with the acronyms WEAD or WD.
  2. The World Boundaries and Election Administration (WBEA or WCPA standing electoral commission, global) shall continue work done for districting or for re-districting from residents of the respective world districts. The WBEA shall implement the Hackett-Newcombe plan for world districting, adopting work done to date insofar as meeting Earth Constitution standards. The WBEA shall receive or draw up further proposals for world districts delineation. Polished assignment of world district lines is subject to review and approval of the World Parliament.
  3. World districts form as cooperative benevolent associations. World districts adhere to the internationally-accepted Rochdale Principles, q.v.: 3.1) voluntary open membership; 3.2) democratic member control; 3.3) member economic participation; 3.4) autonomy and independence; 3.5) education, training and information; 3.6) cooperation among cooperatives; and 3.7) concern for community. Participation is voluntary in the sense that participants join by intent without duress from the world district to join, yet subject to world law of Earth Constitution and Earth Federation.
  4. Each branch and administration (ministry) of Earth Federation manifests in similar order within each world district. Local world district residents directly elect each officer of the branches via general elections of the Earth Federation. Adult current residents of the world district who commit to maintain local district residency throughout term of office, and who otherwise qualify for office by provisions of the Earth Constitution and world legislation are eligible as candidates in world district elections. Apart from elected officers’ immediate office staff assistants, elected officers use local World Civil Service Commission to draw and appoint world district staff openings from the civil service lists. World civil service personnel hold position during competency and are not subject to political cycles.
  5. For world district suffrage rights, world district residents need not be citizens of any particular state or continental federation. Residents retain suffrage rights in world district elections regardless of past or current legal status. For youth preparation in duty of suffrage, youth 14 through 17 years of age have suffrage right of secret straw vote, the common results of which are public. The world courts and other Earth Federation decision-making bodies may consider the youth vote results as advisory.
  6. World district officers operate in a matrix-management system process, which means that world district officers are accountable to answer (report) directly to the residents of the world district, directly to the other officers of the particular world district administration, as well as directly to the Regional and global Earth Federation authorities.
  7. If a matter is internal to the world district, world district officers need not immediately involve regional or global Earth Federation authorities. If a matter, action or activity affects two or more world districts, the respective world district officers shall communicate immediately to a regional or global level.
  8.  Structure – Under current population estimates, a world district composes of about 0.79 crore residents (7.9 million residents. This might reflect an electorate between about 0.7 crore and 0.4 crore adult residents. ) The world district electoral commission (WDEC) shall divide the district into ten (10) equally-populous (within +/-10%) world judicial precincts of five (5) world sub-districts of equal population within +/- 10%.  Therefore, each judicial precinct will have approximately 7.9 lakh residents (7,90,000 or 790,000 residents, with the adult electorate being something less—perhaps 4 to 6 lakh.). The WDEC shall assign a number zero (0) through nine (9) to designate each world judicial precinct. The WDEC shall assign the number 0 to the primary World District Seat where the plurality of the respective world district offices are established or expected to be established. The WDEC shall assign ordered pairs of contiguous world judicial precincts to form sub-districts:  (1,2),(3,4),(5,6),(7,8) and (9,0). Generally, bodies of water are not considered to prevent (count against) contiguity. Sub-districts do not have their own number—for simplicity, the WDEC shall assist the residents of a world district and each constituent sub-district to hold universal plurality plebiscites to assign themselves a name. The WDEC may assign interim names until the plebiscite is feasible during general elections.
  9. World District Officers – At general elections each five years, the resident electorate of each world electoral & administrative district judicial precinct may vote for the following officers: 9.01. one world judicial precinct general manager; 9.02. one sub-district manager; 9.03. a judicial precinct auditor; 9.04. a sub-district auditor; 9.05. a world sub-district attorney; 9.06. a world sub-district ombudsan; 9.07. a world sub-district sheriff; 9.08. a District Public Service Commissioner; 9.09. a member to the House of Peoples; 9.10. as many world judges as the district might need to well serve the world district electoral function; 9.11. (Reserved for provision upon state preliminary ratifications of Earth Constitution.) 9.12. Any particular referendums, initiatives or plebiscites; 9.13. Youth 14 to 17 years of age may take straw vote on the above ballot, and also vote for a judicial precinct youth council representative. (Adults 18 years of age or older don’t vote for any Youth Council Representative.) Qualifications of a candidate for Youth Council Representative is affirmation of the Earth Constitution, residency in the world district, and 14 to 17 years of age at the time of the general election.
  10. By-elections – The World District Electoral Commission (WDEC) shall, within 30 days, call by-elections in the event of death, severe incapacitation or recall of any elected world district officer. WDEC shall conduct the by-elections within 60 days of respective vacating of office. WDEC shall conduct By-electoral inaugurations within 90 days of the respective vacating of office. Officers elected in by-election hold office until the following inauguration. By-election does not count toward any term limits.
  11. Recall elections – The world district electorate may recall any world district elected officer, including Members of Parliament, neither for political stance, political actions, nor alleged “moral turpitude” but for probable cause of world felony. Any district officer indicted by a grand jury determining probable cause is subject to trial in world court.
  12. From vote among themselves, within respective offices, the following officers shall determine an order of annual rotation to serve as the primary world district officer of the respective function: 12.1. sub-district general manager; 12.2. sub-district auditor; 12.3. sub-district attorney; 12.4. sub-district ombudsan; and 12.5. sub-district sheriff.
  13. The World District General Manager, with assistance from the sub-district managers, coordinates the administrative functions of the world district. In particular, the World District General Manager works with the Senior Administrators and the Secretariat of the Secretary General’s office. World District Auditor assesses the functions of the World District.  In particular, the World District Auditor works with agencies of the Integrative Complex and with the World Ombudsmus. The Public Service Commissioner works as liaison between public utilities and the public. The Youth Council Representative works to help adults make better decisions in regards to the youth of the world, and in particular, to help discover best practices for ensuring that world youth get proper training and guidance for good participation as adults in the Earth Federation. The roles (functions) of the World District Attorney (WLA14), the World District Ombudsan (WLA31), the World District Sheriff (WLA54), World District Judges (WLA 15, 20, 24 &. 37) and other elected positions are defined in respective world legislation of the World Parliament.
  14. The world district standard empowers all officers of the World District to call periodic or occasional public hearings regarding their particular functions, to hear public concerns, complaints and disagreements, and to seek amiable resolution of world problems in the world district. Officers shall work with the World District Manager for scheduling of hearings.
  15. The world district standard encourages officers of the world district to listen to peoples’ assemblies for the understanding of world district residents’ concerns, for identification of potential candidates for world district office, and for the reception of initiative legislative actions. The World Parliament has committed support for peoples’ assemblies (WLA29). The world districts are accountable for facilitating the convening of peoples’ assemblies in conformance with World Legislative Act Number 29.
  16. Interim (Provisional) elections – As a voluntary cooperative, initial world district organizers may elect interim (pro tempore) officers from among themselves. Initial organizers may establish their own interim terms and term limits. Members of the World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA) may serve as initial organizers and officers. However, rather than WCPA membership, only at least 18 years of age, respective world district residency and affirmation of the Earth Constitution as the supreme law of Earth within humanity’s institution of law is required for interim officer posts, except for the respective five heads of the three law branches: judiciary, attorney and ombudsmus. Law branch interim officers’ qualification also requires certification from the Institute on Governmental Procedures and World Problems (IGPWP, IGPWP/WCSA) for interim service within the world district. Individuals affirming the Earth Constitution are agreeing to abide by the provisional law of the Earth Federation. Affirmants are Earth Federation citizens subject to decision of their respective world district courts and world district administrations, yet with all rights of the Earth Constitution Bill of Rights and other rights recognized by world legislation.
  17. For continuity of function, the world district WBEA Commission shall list the candidates for world district office in any direct popular referendum for the Earth Constitution. If ratified, then elected officers receive inauguration. Then, the world district has operative, rather than interim status. Interim service does not count toward established term limits of the Earth Federation.
  18. The World Parliament adopts the World District Template, Abridged (E. A. Q. Almand and K. J. Evans, 2019, or a revised version) as a standard auxiliary text for understanding, promoting, implementing and operating the world districts, with this world legislative act and any other world legislation superseding any point of variance.
  19. The World District may adopt its own further policies and procedures not in violation of the Earth Constitution, and not in violation of this or other world legislation, or other established administrative policies of the Earth Federation.

A Bill for an Act: World Legislative Act Number 69

World Federal Powers of Arrest

Short title:   Powers of Arrest

Whereas, the Provisional World Parliament has already adopted comprehensive legislation prohibiting the various conditions and activities of war and multiple crimes of humanity that are antecedent to war (1982, 2003, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2013 and other sessions);

Whereas, the Provisional World Parliament has deliberated and adopted a comprehensive world penal code (December 2003);

Whereas according to world legislation the comprehensive prohibitions of world legislative acts 1 and 13 came into force 180 days from their amendment and adoption, respectively,  on 26 March 2003, meaning that the date of entry into force for civil and criminal cases was September 11, 2003. Therefore, the World Parliament has already authorized general warrant procedures and arrest activities for nearly all possible violations of world legislation and world law;

Whereas, Article 17.2.2, Article 17.3.10 and 17.4.5. of the Earth Constitution provisions for progressive implementation, effective continuity, and continual development of structure and activity of the Earth Federation make clear that the independence of the Earth Constitution does not make provisional world legislation of the World Parliament a model, but rather that nations and peoples have the power to amend or repeal world legislation, even if already adopted by the World Parliament; and that therefore the world legislation of the World Parliament is true law, even though in provisional stage; And that, as observed and decided at the ninth session of Provisional World Parliament at Tripoli, Libya, in April 2006, that Article 19.5.3. of the Earth Constitution makes enforcement a voluntary (optional) act of the Earth Federation’s enforcers, rather than a criminal option to behave, being thereby disparaged, scorned and ridiculed by the criminals of the world;

Whereas, the structure for a comprehensive Criminal Case Bench of the World Court of the Earth Federation was defined and adopted in 2003;

Whereas, that World Court, though primarily based on and nearly identical to the International Criminal Court, [within about 95% identical in text to the work of the renowned jurists, the Honorable Koroma, the Honorable Crawford and the Honorable Thiam], the World Parliament adopted version answers completely all objections offered by states of the world not parties to the Rome Statute, while being true to the initiating spirit of the original, the new World Court being world federal, independent, world constitutional and not politicized;

Whereas, the World Court of the Earth Federation is not a violation of sovereignty as is the International Criminal Court, and whereas the World Court of the Earth Federation is not open to politicization as is the International Criminal Court;

Whereas, the comprehensive Rules of Procedure for the World Court (World Legislative Act Number 24) were also adopted in December 2003, and are in force, with qualifications allowing world judges reasonable discretion in conducting cases during the provisional stage of Earth Federation, under Article 126 of World Legislative Act Number 20;

Whereas, Elements of Crimes were also adopted by the World Parliament from the Rome Statute Family of Statutes, and are in force, though also under qualification in accordance with the World Penal Code – Act 19, in effect as of 28th December 2003;

Whereas, by April 2006, the World Parliament had also adopted comprehensive world federal immunities and privileges;

Whereas, in 1982, 2003, 2006 and 2009, and 2013, extensive legislation defining the structure, responsibilities, officer roles and activities of the World Disarmament Agency were comprehensively defined by the World Parliament, such that the Disarmament Agency is wholly integrating with the Enforcement System, the World Court System and other branches of Earth Federation as defined in the Earth Constitution;

Whereas, the World Parliament has already defined a comprehensive structure for the Enforcement System, as well as a thorough description of allowed, recommended and prohibited instruments of defense as tools of civil enforcement of criminal law of the Earth Federation (World Legislative Act Number 14, March 26, 2003); 

Whereas, the World Parliament began the process of warrant description and process, under Article 16 of World Legislative Act Number 14, also on March 26, 2003;

Among the few steps that the World Parliament has not taken is to specify the legal arrest restraints on the Enforcement System officers, and legal arrest restraints on the public in general—up until now the World Parliament had not yet drawn the legal distinction of general roles for enforcement at the world federal level—who can do what, under various conditions of warrant, or absence of warrant;

Whereas, without such specified restraints on powers of arrest, there is very real danger that enforcement officers and the public may begin to take matters into their own hands without adequate legal guidelines for apprehension and that attempts to enforce or refrain from enforcing world law would likely cascade into further general overt violence without apprehension, overreach of agents of apprehensions, further social turmoil and general internal war—internal world war being now fundamentally nuclear in nature;

Whereas there is a very real necessity to clearly define the vital enforcement role of latter day member militaries within the provisional and early operative stage of Earth Federation, and to do so without impractical notions and sanctimonious moralizations regarding war and peace, and without pressing for simplistic structures, for the arrangement of a good world Enforcement System;

Whereas, under customary law, governments have also been able to request and contract for help from private individuals or private agencies as an auxiliary mode of enforcing warrants, and as this contractual power is likely especially needed in the formation of Earth Federation;

Whereas, among the greatest urgencies is to create strong intelligent protections of humanity’s civil liberties, and whereas the public definition of powers of arrest are fundamental for clarifying our civil duties as well as our civil rights;

Whereas, the enforcement roles of the non-officer citizen residents and officers of Earth Federation have to be defined and clarified to prevent abuse and vigilantism;

Whereas, the role of the enforcement system is not to provide personal protection to anyone in particular, regardless of status, but rather to provide protection to the whole of humanity by enforcement of the world law, the Earth Federation, and with protection thereby to all sentient life under the principles of Earth Constitution Article 16.2.3.;

And, as the general public has a right to know its enforcement limits and responsibilities;

This 15th session of World Parliament decrees and defines these powers of arrest:

1. General categories of powers of arrest are defined:  

1.1. Official Earth Federation power of arrest;

1.2. Sub-jurisdictional official power of arrest;

1.3. Corporate power of arrest;

1.4. General public power of arrest; and

1.5. During provisional, 1st and 2nd operative stages, Member state Military power of arrest.

[Note: The Earth Constitution warrant process is Napoleonic, rather than strictly the English system, in that the Enforcement System and the World Ombudsmus branches have the constitutional power to issue and process warrants as well as the Judiciary.]

Official Earth Federation powers of arrest are largely defined in Earth Constitution Article 10, and in world legislative act number 14. Earth Federation enforcement officers while on duty shall retain instantaneous communication with Dispatch of World Attorneys General office. Earth Federation officer communication to Dispatch is sworn testimony. 

Officers observing world felony or world misdemeanor in progress, or who observe reasonable cause (but not mere suspicion) have power to file electronically or by phone for warrant process. The warrant must describe the person or place where the warrant is to be effected, the probable cause and the time of the warrant.

World federal officers may issue citations for world infractions without warrant, provided no arrest but citation delivery is involved.

World Citations are subject to hearing in World Court.

2. Sub-jurisdictional Powers of Arrest

2.1. World federal officers must not pursue offenses that are sub-jurisdictional alone, unless requested to do so by an Earth Federation sub-jurisdiction. [For instance, World Districts and world regions are not sub-jurisdictions, but Earth Federation member states, member counties and member municipalities are.]

2.2. If so requested, world federal officers may apply through Dispatch to World Attorneys General a world federal sub-jurisdictional assistance warrant. World federal officers shall possess warrant to assist in sub-jurisdictional arrests. The World Attorneys General office warrant shall include explanation of how the arrest upholds the full faith and credit clause and freedom of choice clause of Article Section 14.1.1 and 14.1.2 of the Earth Constitution.

2.3. World Federal Officers are empowered to deputize any sub-jurisdictional officer or any private (civilian) adult, subject to deputization being voluntary (without duress) on the part of the deputy. Deputized volunteers are entitled to a pro-rated share of any outstanding bounty for time and risk of the deputization, to be determined by a subsequent World Attorney General Office bounty hearing.

2.4. Sub-jurisdictional official power of arrest

An enforcement officer of a sub-jurisdiction of the Earth Federation may effect an arrest for a world felony based on direct knowledge (observation), or by cooperation based on possession of a valid search or arrest warrant from the World Attorneys General Office. Some evidence alone without warrant, is not adequate grounds for search or arrest; nor is suspicion. (false arrest is unlawful, world class 1 felony).

2.5. General sub-jurisdictional requirement of warrant process

This act supplements and does not complement sub-jurisdictional warrant process. Member sub-jurisdictions are required to produce warrants for arrests, but these need not mirror exactly the world federal warrant process. (Sub-jurisdictional warrant process may be similar to English system, Napoleonic system or other system, according to the sub-jurisdiction’s constitutional processes.)

If a sub-jurisdiction does not have warrant process requirement in its respective sub-jurisdictional constitutional processes, the sub-jurisdiction shall submit a plan for warrant process to the Constitutional Bench of the Earth Federation within six months of preliminary ratification of the Earth Constitution or within six months of accession to the Earth Constitution. (When 90% of world districts comprising the sub-jurisdiction have ratified the Earth Constitution.) The Constitutional Bench shall decide whether the process is adequate. If not, the Constitutional Bench shall give instructions for meeting requirements.

3. Corporate power of arrest

3.1. a corporate officer may effect an arrest for a world felony based on direct knowledge (observation), or by cooperation based on possession of a valid search or arrest warrant from the World Attorneys General Office. Some evidence or suspicion alone without warrant is not adequate grounds for search or arrest (false arrest is unlawful, world class 1 felony).

3.2. Corporate security retains its customary lower jurisdictional powers of arrest for trespass, theft or vandalism of corporate property or employee property.

3.3. If a primary purpose of a company having a command structure is for providing contractual security services, that company shall register with the World Attorney General office. Security firms with command structure are subject to licensing requirements set by the World Attorney General office and the World Parliament.

4. General public power of arrest 

4.1. Private citizens (adult world district residents) may report on world infractions, world misdemeanors or world felonies on observed or suspected world felonies, whether the alleged violations are observed or merely suspected. 

4.2. A private citizen must not arrest on mere suspicion of world felony. A private citizen must not arrest for world misdemeanor or world infraction. False arrest is unlawful (world class 1 felony).

4.3. A private citizen who has direct observation or knowledge of violation of a world felony may arrest an observed violator, effecting a citizen’s arrest upon probable cause without prior issued warrant. An arresting citizen shall communicate immediately to the world police or World Attorneys General office to file sworn report and charges.

4.4. Due to legal risks involved to private citizens, World Parliament does not recommend (does not encourage) citizen’s arrest without prior issued warrant. Generally, citizen’s arrest is appropriate when a citizen directly observes a felony in progress and is in fear for life or immediate bodily harm to themselves or others.

5. During provisional, 1st and 2nd operative stages, Member state military power of arrest: 

5.1. During the provisional, 1st and 2nd operative stages of Earth Federation, member states’ militaries are specifically exempt from requirement of disclosure or registration of any instruments of defense suitable for law enforcement (IDSLE), including munitions suitable for law enforcement. Suitability is determined exclusively by world legislation of the World Parliament and not by any international convention (e.g.: Assembly of States Parties, United Nations General Assembly or other international deliberative body.) 

During the provisional, 1st and 2nd operative stages of Earth Federation, member states’ IDSLE, including IDSLE munitions is confidential. Breach of confidentiality is unlawful (world class 1 felony). This provision upholds the Earth Constitution Article 14.1 full faith and credit clause. Sub-jurisdictional law enforcement may enforce against violations of this provision without recrimination.

5.2. During the provisional, 1st and 2nd operative stages of Earth Federation, member states’ governments and militaries do not publicly disclose number, movement or location of member states’ troops. Likewise, officers of the Earth Federation are prohibited from public disclosure of number, movement or location of member states’ troops, provided the respective troops are not in violation of world legislation. Breach of confidentiality is unlawful (world class 1 felony). This provision upholds the Earth Constitution Article 14.1 full faith and credit clause. Sub-jurisdictional law enforcement may enforce against violations of this provision without recrimination.

5.3. During the provisional, 1st and 2nd operative stages of Earth Federation, member states’ militaries’ officers and service members have the same powers of arrest as law enforcement officers of the Earth Federation, except that no warrant is required for the arrest of anyone that is not subject to decision of the world court of the Earth Federation, of anyone who is at war (declared or not) with that member’s state or with the Earth Federation, or of anyone who is engaged in armed incitement to violence against the member state or the Earth Federation.

5.4. Without prior warrant, commanding military officers may direct sub-ordinates to arrest a suspect. In keeping with Earth Constitution Article 14.1. provision for full faith and credit to member states, sub-ordinate military personnel shall obey any orders to arrest from their commanding officers, providing these are legal orders.

5.5. Court martial of the respective state may determine the condition of war of the suspect (not prior national declaration), with court martial decision open to appeal to any bench of the World Court of the Earth Federation, provided defendant agrees to be subject to the World Court ruling.

Arrested suspects have the right of habeas corpus, and the right to hearing in the human rights bench of any world district court, where the human rights bench shall decide whether the case is to be heard therein, to be dismissed, to be remanded to the World Bench for Criminal Cases or to be remanded back to sub-jurisdictional court martial.

6. Full powers of arrest is the power to arrest upon the direct observation or knowledge of a world felony or world misdemeanor, the power to apply for and effect a warrant of the World Attorneys General Office, of the World Ombudsmus or of the World Court; and the power to issue citations for infractions against the Earth Federation.

7. List of officials (officers) of the Earth Federation with full powers of arrest: 

7.1. Any officer of the Enforcement System not an officer of the conflict resolution department;

7.2. any officer of world ombudsmus;

7.3. any bailiff of world judiciary or any world judge; 7.4. during provisional, 1st and 2nd operative stages, any service member or military officer of any state or continental federation that has given preliminary or final ratification to the Earth Constitution.

8. Fugitive Hunting Powers of Arrest –

8.01. The World Attorneys General office may assign a budget and specific Earth Hour monetary rewards for private individual or private security company assistance in the apprehension of suspects for whom a felony search or arrest warrant has been issued. Budget is subject to approval of the World Parliament.

8.02. Any adult resident of the Earth Federation may register with the World Attorneys General office to take initiative to assist in the apprehension of any suspect for whom a felony search warrant or felony arrest warrant has been issued.

8.03. Registration for fugitive hunt (bounty hunt, criminal case hunt, or criminal hunt) shall include applicants’ affirmation of the Earth Constitution as the supreme law of Earth within humanity’s institution of law, and agreement to be subject to the decisions of the World Court.

8.04. To help prevent apprehension interference, bounty hunters shall stand down when ordered to do by world federal officers present in an arrest situation.

8.05. World federal officers may request (but not demand) assistance in world federal arrests.

8.06. In cases where both private fugitive hunters and world federal officers are present during a warranted arrest, the World Attorneys General may subsequently inquire. If parties are not in agreement, the World Attorneys General office shall call a hearing in the Public Bench. The World Ombudsmus shall provide a defense on behalf of the bounty hunters to attain a just pro-rating. If the amount in question exceeds 5% of the operating expenses for the particular apprehension, the judges shall appoint a public bench jury.

8.07. Any individual or group deputized by any world enforcement system or world ombudsmus officer under emergency circumstances need not have prior registration with the World Attorneys General office to meet eligibility for any bounty reward. Public Bench hearing shall determine any details not resolved out of court.

8.08. World Attorneys General must not assign bounty pay-outs to exceed operating costs plus maximum annual income for persons collecting bounty. Persons may accrue individual or corporate credits exceeding that amount for not-for-profit Earth Financial Credit Corporation funding allotments, including grants.

8.07. In cases of fugitive hunting where security firms are sole proprietorship, limited partnerships or limited liability companies, and the arresting officer is not under the direction of any other individual, permit or registration of instruments of defense suitable for law enforcement (IDSLE) is not required. In firms (companies, corporations, businesses) where the arresting officers are under the direction of a different (supervising) individual, the company must register all IDSLE with the World Attorney General office, and track assignments of IDSLE. Under the direction of company supervision, only IDSLE registered in the World Attorneys General office by the company can be in possession by an employee while the arresting employee is on duty. The company shall provide locker space for employee-owned IDSLE while the employee is on duty, or the employee may store employee-owned IDSLE in their personal vehicle not used in the arrest, or at their personal residence or IDSLE range of their personal selection.

9. International agreements notwithstanding, no defendant will be found guilty of war or aggression on grounds of resistance (armed or unarmed) to any United Nations “peacekeeping” operations or UN security measures, as UN peacekeeping operations and UN security measures are in violation of principles of world federal democratic constitutional commonwealth republic; are a violation of article 12 of the Earth Constitution; and are a violation of numerous provisions of world legislation.

9.1. The Assembly of States Parties’ 2017 decision that armed resistance to the United Nations or its officers constitutes aggression is a decision that is null and void and must not be used in the prosecution of anyone in any bench of the World Court of the Earth Federation.

9.2. In re-confirmation of the 2010 World Parliament decision, as frangible munitions allow greater safety to the general public and enforcement officers—the World Court of the Earth Federation shall recognize frangible munitions (hollow-point munitions) without explosive charges to be lawful.

9.3. Unless a United Nations “peacekeeping” officer or “peacekeeping” service member gives prior affirmation to the Earth Constitution, that officer or service member has no legal power of arrest whatsoever. Earth Federation member militaries and world courts may recognize the presence or operation of armed United Nations “peacekeeping” forces as incitement to violence. Incitement to violence is unlawful (world class 3 misdemeanor).

10. Related definitions:

To strengthen world civil defense capacity, to protect against vigilantism, and to enforce prohibition against private militaries (para-militaries) the World Parliament differentiates between the terms “para-military” and “militia”. These legal terms at world federal level are mutually exclusive. The World Court shall recognize this definitive distinction. A para-military is not a militia, and a militia is not a para-military.  Though a para-military might claim to be a militia, the two are distinguished by organizational behavior:

10.1. A para-military (private army, private navy, private air force, private cyber-force or private space force) operates clandestinely or partially clandestinely from a state’s military, with the para-military’s own command structure. The para-military might have its own warranting, judgment and sentencing actions (which is contrary to the principle of Earth Constitution Article Section 12.15.) Typically, a para-military acts outside a state’s laws and outside the laws of the Earth Federation. Para-military participation is unlawful (world class 4 felony). Para-military direction is unlawful (world class 5 felony).

10.2. A militia is the body of able adult residents of the Earth Federation. A local militia is allowed in conformance with laws of the Earth Federation for the following lawful activities (functions):

10.2.1. Neighborhood watch groups;

10.2.2. safety training for Instrument of Defense Suitable for Law Enforcement (IDSLE);

10.3.3.IDSLE legal use training;

10.3.4. customary/sport martial arts training, including with blade instruments;

10.3.5. voluntarily assisting Earth Federation enforcement officers or sub-jurisdictional enforcement officers upon request for assistance;

10.3.6. other purposes not prohibited by world law.

10.3. Ordinarily, local militias are not required to register organization or any instruments of defense suitable for law enforcement. However, if an organised militia intends to collect any bounty as a group, or to contract to provide private security services, that group is held to the same registration rules as corporate security agencies.

11. Entry into force

Due to the urgent quality of this world legislation this world legislative act, including its provisions prohibiting false arrest, enters into force upon its adoption by the Provisional World Parliament.

A Bill for an Act: World Legislative Act Number 70

Civil Asset Forfeiture

WORLD LEGISLATIVE ACT ON CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE[1] RELATED TO ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES IN WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION, INCLUDING NUCLEAR WEAPONS, IN FAVOR OF THE CAUSE TO HUMAN COMMUNITY[2]

Short title: Civil Asset Forfeiture

The Human beings of all world’s towns proclaim the following world legislative act on civil asset forfeiture related to illicit activities in Weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons in favor of the Human Community, in order that it realizes the fundamental right of Survival of each human being, human grouping and humanity as a species, pre-existing right to any formation of the States be National or Federal State of the Earth.

Preamble / Preface

  • Considering that human dignity is the essential value of the universal human community and sustenance of every exercise of legitimate power, which is at your service; besides the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of nuclear weapons and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as well as Advisory Opinion  A/ 51/ 218 of the International Court of Justice on legality of the threat or use of nuclear weapons; which led to the first, thirteenth World Legislative Acts of the World Parliament in addition to creating the World Disarmament Agency has declared the prohibition of weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons, conceiving the actions of  investment in, designing, investigating, testing, producing, manufacturing, transporting, deploying, installing, maintaining, storing, selling, buying or detonating any nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction according to the list contained in Appendix A of the mentioned Act as crimes against humanity, insofar that as a threat or danger it affects in itself human dignity and potentially attacks not only the survival of a human being, but of entire populations and even of the human species.
  • Affirming that before the sovereignty of the State over a pre-existing territory there is a fundamental right to survive, as an individual, as a group and as a human species whose recognition is an essential premise for all human coexistence, the same as being objectively threatened with the presence of weapons of mass destruction determines that the actions of investment in, designing, investigating, testing, producing, manufacturing, transporting, deploying, installing, maintaining, storing, selling, buying or detonating any nuclear weapon or other weapons of mass destruction anywhere in the planet constitutes a crime against humanity and therefore illegal activity, even if the corresponding National or Federal State, democratic or not, or a conventional norm between States declares it a lawful act.
  • Affirming the presence of enormous interests around illicit activities related to weapons of mass destruction and recognizing that up to now state standards at the level of contemporary Nation States and international conventions for the limitation of nuclear weapons, including the first World Legislative Act of Prohibition of Weapons of Mass Destruction and Nuclear Weapons of the World Parliament[3] have been insufficient for the purpose of eradicating, diminishing or attacking the manufacture, maintenance or preservation of weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons; fundamentally due to its limited punitive nature, non-reception of the States, lack of knowledge of the norm by the technocracy and because it does not economically attack the power of the organizations that sustain the illicit activity against humanity.
  • Recognizing the effectiveness of the civil asset forfeiture figure as a global disempowerment tool for any international criminal organization, particularly that dedicated to drug trafficking, which is why, with greater reason, it can and should be used to attack the economic power of any organization private, para-state or State that performs some of the illegal activities against humanity already described in World Legislative Law # 1 that prohibits Weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons and creates the global department for disarmament; and that potentially affects or endangers the most basic human right that is the survival of the human species.
  • Convinced that the conscience of every human being and not violence, is what determines the central content and destiny of any legal norm, which is why the state norm that manifestly attacks fundamental substantive rights of basic recognition as human beings to the point of mean the risk of the survival of the human species, loses its nature of a valid legal norm before the Universal Human Community (expression that includes the integrity of human beings present and all future generations), which although it does not have the coercive force present, by gravitating in the consciousness of humanity, sooner or later, its enforceability will prevail in the mode of responsibility for acts already performed contrary to human consciousness.
  • Aware that the use of nuclear weapons in the world has meant until now the extermination of hundreds of thousands of human beings and today; in the circumstance that there is an increasingly interdependent global human life community that faces the problem of the manufacture and use of weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons[4]  that in addition to having the potential for extermination of the entire human species[5]; its only presence in at present, it determines a growing situation of risk to human survival, becoming in itself a weapon of threat or pressure, which prevents or cancels the development of authentic dialogue that allows mutual understanding in the resolution of international disputes and the projection and assumption of effective measures that seriously confront the great problems of humanity.
  • The World Parliament adopts this World Legislative Act On Civil Asset Forfeiture related to illicit activities in weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons in favor of the cause to Human Community.
  • The World Parliament calls, as a common purpose for all human beings, peoples, scientists, technicians, members of the army, authorities, defenders of the people, prosecutors, judges of all nations of the world, to know this world legislation, to disseminate it, recognize the truth and validity of its provisions and apply this Universal Law ensuring through decisions, measures and mechanisms that Universal recognition and application are within reach, among all peoples and the States of the World.

(Articles)

Article 1.- Right of ownership of the Universal Human Community

Civil Asset Forfeiture is the permanent loss of property for failure to comply with the law.

The goods or real estate that constitute the object, instrument, effect or profits of illegal activities against humanity to investment in, design, investigate, test, produce, manufacture, transport, deploy, install, maintain, store, sell, buy or detonate any nuclear or other weapons of mass destruction according to the list contained in Appendix A of World Legislative Act No. 1 are goods or real estate of ownership of the Universal Human Community.

Article 2.- Current Effectiveness of Civil Asset Forfeiture on weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons to favor of cause to the human community

It corresponds in full right since the validity of this law its application force by or for the scientist, technocrat, official, military, including other collaborating persons such as driver, cleaning server, etc. As well as any legal person, parastatal and public legal entities, and in general any state of the planet, for the following:

2.1. Any of the authorities of any of the respective States that are directly or indirectly affected by the extinction of ownership, or on the contrary invoking affectation to the Universal Human Community may administratively, at the investigative stage of the Public Prosecution, judicially initiate the process of extinction of ownership or their respective preparatory activities on goods related to illegal activities in Weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons in favor of the Human Community in accordance with the rules that govern their country in relation to the act on civil asset forfeiture in general and if this is not foreseen in its system, according to the rules of this law on the act on civil asset forfeiture and the general principles of the process that are judicially appropriate considering the autonomy of said process.

2.2. Any scientist, technocrat, official, military, including other collaborating persons, such as driver, security guards, cleaning staff, etc, of the illicit activities related to weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons regulated in this universal law may and shall, despite what is established or ordered by their administrative or labor superiors of their respective country, refuse to continue collaborating in the development of Illicit activity. The contravention of this provision will have the full effect of the extinction of entitlement to any monetary and / or remuneration for any concept received, accrued or accrued in consideration for participating or collaborating in the illegal activity, the ownership of which corresponds to the Universal Human Community.

2.3. The foregoing assumption is not applicable to the actor or collaborator of the illegal activity that presents its effective declaration in the presence of the competent authority that knows the investigative stage of the process or in absence of the competent authority, in the presence of the World Disarmament Agency, whose veracity must be corroborated by other means of evidence.

Article 3.- Process to Act On Civil Asset Forfeiture of weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons in favor of the human community

If the legislative act on civil asset forfeiture described in article 2 were not implemented at any time, the WCPA or other continuation agencies may implement these, in accordance with the World Constitution and world legislation. The act on civil asset forfeiture is imprescriptible.

Article 4.- Ownership of the Universal Human Community

The ownership of the Universal Community is exercised by its representative bodies designated by the World Parliament. The World Parliament main purpose is same as the Broad Functions listed in Article 1 of the Earth Constitution: world peace, human rights protection;  regulate world economy; fight against extreme poverty and protection of the environment.

Article 5.-  On the increasing monitorization of the Human Community in relation to illicit activities related to Weapons of mass destruction including nuclear weapons

While the representative bodies of the Universal Human Community are not sufficient, any human being who conscientiously exercises public power is a competent member of the body whose ownership belongs to the Universal Human Community.

Article 6. The World Parliament directs the World Disarmament Commission of Earth Constitution 19.1.2.4. and 19.2.6. to form the following sub-commissions: Enforcement Commission, (focusing on the world legislation for the World Disarmament Agency and the Enforcement operations of provisional Earth Federation); Judicial Commission, (focusing on the implementation of the judicial legislation of the World Parliament), and Public Advocacy Commission, (focusing on human rights and Ombudsmus function.)

Subproposals to operationalize this proposal 2 in an effective way:

Collegium of World Human Beings to Justice

Invitation to membership by David Quispe

The presence of global problems that endanger the survival of the human species is undoubtedly the most important event at this time of medium and long term that, although it reminds us of the great family that inhabits this planet, it also announces that tragically there are two common risks amalgamated of a character growing: that of massive destruction by nuclear weapons and that of ecological catastrophe, a circumstance that challenges the establishment of free and conscious collective actions of a global nature, capable of guiding human action in defense of the survival of our species.

The awareness of this situation comes to us after the permanence and decline of a modern promise of unlimited progress about technology and science, with the only limit of the economic rules and the substantive laws coming from the Nation States and Federals of the planet. As a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, we are witnesses to the disenchantment of this promise that, given the limits of reality defined by the instinct for self-preservation and expressed lately in the global experience of confinement and social distancing,  reminds us that we are living with more than 15,000 nuclear weapons with the ability to disappear not only the cities but rather the entire planet, living parallel in rampant material progress extended to the middle classes of the privileged countries. It is time to wake up from the consumption dreams to process the bitter experience of the absence of preventive measures against the origin of the pandemic announced by the scientific community at least five years before its devastating onset, generating from the conscious citizen initiative, faced with the inaction of the institution, the just global measures that stop and overcome the imminent nuclear or ecological catastrophe also announced by the scientific community since 1947.

There is no way to realize our personal, family, and work dreams without first ensuring the survival of our species. Therefore, without sacrificing our personal goals, we must recognize our ideological, moral, national, cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity; respecting and ultimately accepting the diversity of regulations of the respective Nation States of each territorial space of the planet. Thus, it is up to us as beings committed to respecting and appreciating our ancestors and loving our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and other linear or collateral descendants, to do everything in our power to ensure the continuity of the survival of our species.

Membership of the World College of Human Beings to Justice is open to all citizens of the planet regardless of their social, professional role, gender, ideological, religious, political, nationality, etc. either a member of the World Constitution Parliament Association or not; that, in the absence in the world of a capable parastatal, state or conventional institutional system, has the purpose of carrying out non-violent peaceful collective actions aimed at stopping the behaviors of design, research, testing, production, manufacturing, transportation, deployment, installation, maintenance, storage, sale, purchase, investment or detonation of any nuclear weapon or other weapons of mass destruction as well as effective actions that stop the incessant increase in ecological risk affecting the right to survival of humanity.

Aware that when the threat or flagrant attack on fundamental rights occurs, without the presence of a state authority authorized to apply the law, the use of proportional physical force is universally recognized to defend in the exercise of the right in self-regulation. Self-regulation is defined as the right of the citizen or human being to defend himself naturally without requiring the intervention of any public authority. Consequently, in the current circumstance, when the danger is not the affectation of the fundamental right of an individual but the affectation of the collective fundamental right of the entire human species proper to the announced imminent catastrophe, self-regulation in the absence of institutional action, takes particular characteristics as an articulation of natural law actions.

Thus, beyond what is bureaucratically declared by the institutions to which individuals belong as members, every woman or man recognizes, announces and undertakes in self-regulation of the aforementioned right, to the following actions:

 1) The immediate application of the articles of the World Constitution of the World Constitution Parliament Association, as well as the world legislation given in relation to it whose objective is to make effective the self-regulation of the species, particularly the universal law of extinction of ownership of property related to illegal activities in weapons of mass destruction including those nuclear weapons in favor of the Human Community.

 2) Developing and creatively strengthening activities aimed at fulfilling our personal activities of our individual project while promoting the achievement of collective activity in defense of the survival of the species, such as the constitution of Professional or Occupational Associations for the defense of the human species, favoring activities such as conducting forums, whatsapps, facebooks, networks, diplomas, postgraduate studies, research in indexed journals, creation and use of trademarks or trade names of useful media that promote the implementation of effective measures for the application of the universal law of extinction of dominion and other measures oriented to an effective paralysis of such activities and the establishment of a world order effectively oriented towards the continuity of human life on the planet.

Reactivation of the World College of Judges, Expanding its coverage to judges at all levels and aiming at its articulation with the draft of the Domain Extinction Law and the World College of Human Beings for Justice.

A Bill for an Act: World Legislative Act Number 71

Incorporation of mechanisms of direct democracy in acts of world government, at local, regional and world levels with creation of the Democratic Procedures Department

(Summary: It is clearly stated how direct democracy should be developed specifically in World Government.)

Provisional World Parliament, December 10-12, 2021, New Delhi, India

Short title: Direct Democracy Law

Considering that today there seems to be a consensus that world society is in crisis, that we are facing a crucial point, in which a profound paradigm shift is taking place. A fundamental crisis, of perception, that is, of the way we see the world;

Whereas science has shown that this world is a whole, that our planetary biosphere is a whole, and that humanity is a whole. We are all 99.9% genetically identical. We are a humanity that lives on a fragile planet that is in great danger because it is fragmented into some 193 militarized “sovereign” entities that are governed by their respective ruling classes and transnational corporate interests;

Considering that we live under a de facto world government, in which the large transnational companies hold more power than most nations. War has become big business: conflicts are created, the world is chaotic, so that the “dogs of war” sell their weapons. Countries are destroyed to give reconstruction to large companies. The pharmaceutical transnationals create diseases and then offer the miracle cure. Short-term gain is maximized, shedding weight on Mother Earth. The real needs of the population are put aside to produce speculative papers that only have value on the stock market;

Considering that, with the prevailing paradigm of modernity, until now a fragmented, anthropocentric, patriarchal, materialistic, competitive, mechanistic, and physicalist vision, excessively rationalist, has prevailed;

Considering that the current civilization presents serious problems, such as the antagonism between the aggressive transnational capital, the catastrophic impact of the production practices of capital on the environment, the total inability of the capital system to face the challenge of women’s liberation and the cancer of chronic unemployment, but perhaps the most relevant is the big gap between the average depth that culture offers and the number of those who can actually reach it;

Considering that we see these antagonisms or contradictions daily in the news: wars of all kinds (military, commercial, media, blockades, etc.), climatic disasters, lack of fresh water, insurrections and protests, epidemics and diseases, widespread poverty, insufficient food resources, generalized economic crisis, educational crisis, etc.;

Considering that a change of direction in world civilization is urgent, in order to avoid the extinction of human civilization;

Considering that only people’s awareness of this situation, and their active participation in change, can make a new society of peace, justice and sustainability a reality.

Considering that the World Constitution establishes the mechanisms of organization at the local (Electoral Districts) and world level, maintaining the nation-states, but with a revised concept of sovereignty, under the principle that sovereignty resides in the people, not in any type of institution;

Whereas the World Constitution advocates for the greatest possible amount of democracy. The Manifesto states that “A vibrant democracy gives legal power to all people as citizens of the world in matters of equality, freedom and responsibility. Consecrated at all levels, from the local level to the global level, that this democracy updates universal morality and existential truth at the heart of our situation”;

Considering that world peace through international law necessarily requires a genuine planetary democracy, which will constitute a true paradigm shift from a social system of war at the international level to a system of peace;

Whereas Article 1 of the World Constitution requires “to protect universal human rights, including life, liberty, security, democracy, and equal opportunities in life”;

Considering that Article 2 of the World Constitution orders that “the World Government for the Federation of the Earth shall be non-military and shall be democratic in its own structure, with ultimate sovereignty residing in all the people who live on Earth;

Considering that among the departments of the world administration that of “Democratic Procedures” is created (Article 7.3);

Considering that today’s technology allows direct democracy to be fully developed.

Whereas, democracy is more than merely periodic general elections and peaceful determination of geographical political borders, but is also a principle that requires regular expression in the daily lives of all people everywhere;

The delegates of the 15th Session of the Provisional World Parliament proclaim the following law to establish the Democratic Procedures Department to help promote democratic procedures and global direct democracy:

  1. The Democratic Procedures Department is created with a Minister. As soon as feasible, the Minister shall select a Senior Administrator, subject to confirmation of the Presidium (EC.7.2.4.). From senior lists of the World Civil Service Administration, the Senior Administrator shall select 20 World Regional Administrators, subject to confirmation of the Minister. Additional qualification of world regional administrator is full-year primary residency in the respective world region during service.
  • The Department of Democratic Procedures will further design, at each of the levels of world government, the mechanisms for the full exercise of Direct Democracy by the citizens of the world, so that anyone affirming the Earth Constitution may participate actively and prominently in decisions at the Legislative, Executive, Judicial, Coercive and Public Defender levels. In particular, the Department of Democratic Procedures shall review the World Elections Act together with the Commission for Legislative Review to determine possible recommendations for improvement of that Act. The department shall outline different types of voting options, for example, forms of weighted voting, to enhance the direct democratic voices within electorates. The Department shall outline the strengths and weaknesses of each option for the benefit of Election Commissions worldwide.
  • The Democratic Procedures Minister shall assist the Commission of the World Boundaries and Elections Administration (WBEA). The Senior Administrator of the WBEA shall receive reports and proposals from the Democratic Procedures Department, and convey these reports with comment to the WBEA Commission. The Senior Administrator of the Democratic Procedures Department may convey reports and proposals directly to the WBEA Commission.
  • The Minister and Senior Administrator of the Democratic Procedures Department may sit in WBEA Commission meetings with voice of comment but without vote, except that in the case of a tie vote of the WBEA Commission, the Minister of Democratic Procedures may break the tie. If a tie vote arises while the Minister of Democratic Procedures is sitting in legislative session, the record and substance of the WBEA Commission question shall be transmitted to the Minister of Democratic Procedures, for consideration and decision outside of legislative session hours. To make this provision meaningful, a cabinet minister or Vice-President shall not serve at the same time as both Minister of Democratic Procedures and as Minister of the WBEA Commission.
  • The Department of Democratic Procedures shall interact with the President of the Provisional World Parliament, and shall present a proposal for mechanisms to the Provisional World Parliament, within six months. 
  • The world district offices of the Democratic Procedures Department shall receive any reports, proposals (including initiatives) and other communications from local and world district peoples’ assemblies. The regional offices of the Democratic Procedures Department shall receive any reports, proposals (including initiatives) and other communications from regional peoples’ assemblies. The Minister of the Democratic Procedures Department shall receive any reports, proposals (including initiatives) and other communications from international or global peoples’ assemblies, conveying these, with separate ministerial commentary and recommendations to the respective World Boundaries and Elections Administration offices and to the Presidium.
  • As soon as feasible, the Democratic Procedures Department shall establish an office in each world region and in each world district.
  • Public Utility Allocations

Initial workload for the Democratic Procedure Department is likely to exceed the eventual operative stage workloads. Therefore, initial salaries are set to premium (two thousand Earth Hours, annual. &2K, annual). To begin the Democratic Procedures Department, the Democratic Procedures Fund is the following:

World Office:

The World Financial Administration shall set up withholding accounts for personnel subject to sub-jurisdictions that have income tax systems. However, sub-jurisdictional payments from withholding accounts are subject to sub-jurisdictions being members to the Earth Federation.

Also, the World Financial Administration shall set up matching, survivable, retirement accounts. Income from work done accounts from the time work begins, not from the time that the World Financial Administration is operable. Accounting from date respective personnel begin is necessary to comply with Earth Constitution Article Section 17.6 requirement that all work provided be accounted for.

Retirement account fund for Democratic Procedures Department: Three hundred forty point eighty-four lakh Earth Hours, annual. &34,084K, annual.

  • This Act has Annexes of Issues.

Bill for a Memorial to Indian Government

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 Constituent Assembly, as adopted by the Provisional World Parliament Sixth Session, Bangkok, March 2003.

Short title:

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 Mudalier, 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 Constituent Assembly 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 Constituent Assembly (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.
