In order to better understand this call for global peace, launched with the help and supervision of President Nicolas Maduro we are presenting in full the text of the message to the peoples of the world:

 

 Under President Nicolas Maduro, Venezuela has become one of the leaders of the democratic world.

 

MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLES OF THE WORLD

FOR PEACE, SOVEREIGNTY AND DEMOCRACY IN VENEZUELA

We, citizens of the world, workers, members of social movements, civil rights organizations and political parties, academics, intellectuals and creators, denounce before humanity the international conspiracy led by the Government of Donald Trump against the people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, its Government and its legitimate authorities.

Under a speech of racial supremacy, intolerance and warmongering, which remind us of the darkest times of fascism, the Government of Donald Trump wages a political, diplomatic, economic and media aggression, including the military option, to undermine Venezuelan democracy, to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro and to establish a government that serves the interests of
Washington.

The neocolonial restoration process in Venezuela seeks to deprive the Venezuelan people from its sovereignty and return to the global powers control over the immense riches and resources of the country.

This conspiracy against a sovereign country, which openly violates international law, makes progress thanks to the full support of the great media transnational companies, and the shameful support of neoliberal and antigrassroots governments.

Last April, a US financed political violence campaign began – through the Venezuelan opposition – and was presented to the world as civil and pacific protests. In addition to this propaganda, a smear campaign was also launched against the Venezuelan democracy before the world public opinion, by projecting Venezuela’s government as a dictatorship that violates human rights and drives the country into an alleged deep humanitarian crisis.

Truth is that the only purpose of this campaign is to overthrow the legitimate Government of Venezuela by spreading death, chaos and violence, following the style of the “Color Revolutions”. Since then, more than a hundred people have died and more than two thousand people have been wounded.

The political violence promoted by Washington has caused significant material damage and suffering to the Venezuelan people.
The latest manifestation of this plot is the discredit of the elections held on July 30th, in which eight millions of Venezuelans elected a National Constituent Assembly.

Thanks to the National Constituent Assembly election, the Venezuelan people defeated violence in the streets and restored peace. From July 30th, a process of stabilization of civil and political life has begun through the participation of all the political parties in the next regional elections for governors to be held in October.
Due to the latest threat of military force by Donald Trump and the financial blockade imposed on Venezuela, the supremacist government of Washington
has intensified the conflict, and has publicly expressed its intention to “choke” the Venezuelan economy.

We reject the escalating aggressions against Venezuela by the US administration.

Venezuela is a nation that has been building people’s democracy in a peaceful manner for 18 years now.

The Bolivarian democracy has returned the control of natural resources to the country, has redistributed wealth in favor of the working class and the humble sectors of society, and has guaranteed the social rights of all its population.

 

 

President Nicolas Maduro is welcomed around the world as a messenger of peace, democracy and dialogue.

 

Venezuela social achievements in the field of education, health care, social protection, social security universalization and indigenous communities’ rights have proven that it is possible to make democracy more democratic.

Its ecosocialist approach challenges those who impose the plundering of common goods of humanity by transnational elites.
Venezuela does not represent a threat to any country in the world. Since its independence, more than 200 years ago, it has never engaged in a military conflict, nor has it ever participated in wars or aggressions against other nations.

For the peace-loving people and the peoples of the world, Venezuela is a beacon of hope. This hope is threatened today by the supremacist ideology of Washington. The US ruling elite has decided to block political dialog in Venezuela and bring this country into a fratricidal conflict in order to justify this elite’s intervention plan.

We alert the world to the serious threat to world peace created by the warmongering obsession of Donald Trump. A military aggression against Venezuela or the overthrow of the Bolivarian Revolution will cause in the hemisphere a crisis of historic proportions in all orders, and will break integrationist efforts, taking away the purposes of all the nations of our region that have declared Latin America and the Caribbean a zone of peace.

The world must stop Washington madness. In the name of humanity, we demand that Donald Trump withdraw the threat of military aggression and repeal the economic sanctions and financial blockade against the Venezuelan people.

For all the above reasons, we call on all respectable men and women, from all places, ideologies and beliefs, on those who dream of a world of justice and equality, to join the WORLD CONFERENCE: WE ARE ALL VENEZUELA. DIALOG FOR PEACE, SOVEREIGNTY AND BOLIVARIAN DEMOCRACY, to be held in Caracas, Venezuela, on September 16th and 17th, and from that date on, in various parts of the world.

This day of global mobilization will bring together the solidarity of the peoples with the homeland of Simon Bolivar.
Venezuela is not alone. Today, we honor the brave Venezuelan people in their struggle for peace and dialog and in their defense of national dignity and sovereignty.

Mahatma Gandhi said: “There is no way to peace, peace is the only way.”

And Che Guevara, with his example of humanity, affirmed: “Solidarity is the tenderness of the peoples”.

In view of the imperial threat and warmongering, let us say today in the words of the great poet Pablo Neruda, our flag and our victory will be peace.

“Peace for the twilights to come (…) peace for the city in the morning when bread
wakes up…”

Peace so that Venezuela continues to illuminate the future.

The report had analyzed the pre-election legal framework, the provisions of electoral laws and regulations and the constitutional requirements and the international obligations assumed by Kazakhstan and concluded the elections preparation had fully complied with the legal, constitutional and international standards and the prerequisite factors for free and fair elections compatible with transparency and democratic standards are in place in Kazakhstan.

Between 22 to 29 April 2015 a Romanian delegation had monitored the electoral process in Kazakhstan.

The conclusions of the Final Report was that Kazakhstan elections where fully in agreement with internal laws and international standards, being classified as an example of transparency, organization and massive electoral participation.

All this factors are self evident manifestations of the Kazakh people trust in the electoral system, in free and fair and transparent electoral process and most of all in people satisfaction with the national economic and political system.

This satisfaction has being the catalyst of a huge electoral participation.

The overwhelming vote, in favor of incumbent president, was a predictable one as a supporting vote for stability, continuity and economic and democratic development.

The Republic of Kazakhstan can consider, on good reasons, that his transition towards democracy was favorable concluded with 26 April 2015 election.

KAZAKHSTAN 2015 ELECTIONS: THE LESSONS OF A DEMOCRATIC EXERCISE by Professor Dr. Anton Caragea MA, FINS, PhD

Supervising the elections in any country in the world is a momentous and difficult task and not to be taken lightly.

You have to observe the present, but with responsibility for the future and impartiality in your heart.

Election supervision

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea supervising election in Kazakhstan-26 April 2015

If you are supervising elections in Kazakhstan, the heart of Central Asia, the task is doubled in significance, as Kazakhstan has become an example in the world.

 

Kazakhstan has carved himself in the centre of international politics, the host of international meetings destined to bring peace and dialogue in the world, the place where technology and tradition meets and the mediator between developed and developing countries, a place where East and West can build a bridge for dialogue.

Observing elections in such a key country it is an honourable and full of seriousness assignment.

For all this reasons, the invitation offered to me, on behalf of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan, to observe the elections in the country, as an international observer, was a very challenging one, but nothing has prepared me for the phenomenon I was about to witness.

In Kazakhstan, on 26 of April 2015 I was witnessing the maturity exam of a people.

Born only in 1991, on the ruins of former Soviet Union, Kazakhstan was a young nation, a country only developing his democratic institutions and credentials.

After the early presidential elections held on 26 April 2015, we can safely conclude that this stage was phased out.

With a record presence at poll, of over 95%, people of Kazakhstan proved, without a shadow of a doubt, their commitment to free and fair elections, to build and uphold a democratic society.

While other nations are struggling to bring their electors to the urns and millions of voters disappointed by corruption and state inefficiency are feeling disenfranchised, in developing Kazakhstan millions of electors proved that democracy is not just an empty word to find in the political text books, but a living reality.

I have the pleasure of seeing the people of Kazakhstan taken their future in their hands and voting for their future development, for practical solutions, for experience to weather out the economic storm that is rummaging the world.

The elections in Kazakhstan where not just a democratic exercise, but they where the proof that the peoples power really exist and if the citizens are feeling involved in the economic, social and cultural life of their country, if the state is not failing them and provides the social benefits expected the people will respond partaking in the electoral process.

In the economic and political failed states of the world we can see the reduction of election attendance, the disinterest of the citizens and the broken down of the social contract that Rousseau and French revolutionaries had considered as the fundamentals of the state.

 President Anton Caragea on International Press ConferenceProfessor Dr. Anton Caragea meets the international press in Almaty, unveiling the election monitoring mission results

 

Kazakhstan state is honouring his social contract with his citizens and the response is this huge electoral participation.

95% electoral attendance can be a mystery in states where citizens are isolated and oppressed, but this is a reality in a functional nation.

In Kazakhstan, the 2015 elections where a national plebiscite in which the people decided above anything else their future.

I have observed this reality as hundreds of thousand of peoples turn out to vote accompanied by children’s and small infants, as they realized that it is not so much a vote for next few years, but a vote for future, for peace, for continuous democratic development and economic achievements.

Kazakhstan’s 2015 elections where undoubtedly democratic in nature, where fair and crystal clear transparent and where offering a few refreshing news for everybody.

On the fore is the news that democracy can be a real practice, can involve a nation that is educated and convinced of his role in history.

At the same time it was proven the fact that: governments and peoples are not confrontational actors on political arena, but they can cooperate to build a powerful country.

26 of April 2015 early presidential elections of Kazakhstan where the irrefutable proof of this self evident truth: that democracy can only work when all the people are involved.

NORTH KOREA IS FULLY RESPECTING HUMAN RIGHTS IS THE CONCLUSION OF A RECENT REPORT

A report of the DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies was released on Saturday amid concern and expectation of the public at home and abroad.

It reflects the characteristics of the socialist system, human rights policy pursued in the DPRK and the actual human rights performance in the country.

    The world is showing increasing concern for human rights issue and there are widespread actions for genuine human rights in all fabrics of social life.

    What is getting all the more undisguised on the international arena at present are political pressures on specified countries and attempts at interference in the internal affairs of those countries by abusing the inviolable human rights. A typical example is the vicious human rights racket against the DPRK.

    The hostile forces are persistently peddling the “human rights issue” in the DPRK in a bid to tarnish its image and bring down the social system and ideology chosen by the Korean people. They are becoming all the more undisguised in these moves as the days go by.

    Wild rumors and fictions about the DPRK are afloat in the international community due to the hostile forces’ despicable human rights racket to slander and hurt the DPRK.

    Under this situation the DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies released a report on human rights performance in the country to help the public properly know about the efforts exerted by the DPRK to protect and promote human rights and about the actual human rights performance and lay bare the false and reactionary nature of the reckless anti-DPRK “human rights” racket kicked up by the hostile forces and thus wipe out the prejudice and misunderstanding.

    The five-chapter all-inclusive report was worked out with the cooperation among several domestic institutions and NGO organizations, academic institutions and human rights experts in various fields.

    The first chapter deals with the ideological foundation of the state human rights system as regards the human rights system in the DPRK and the course of its formation and development.

    The second chapter deals with all legal and practical measures taken by the state after the foundation of the country to guarantee the rights of people and protect and promote them and human rights enjoyed by the citizens.

Human Rights on Korea

    The third and fourth chapters deal with the stand and efforts made by the DPRK for human rights in the world and major difficulties lying in the way of guaranteeing human rights in the DPRK.

    The fifth chapter deals with data studied by the Association as regards the prospect for guaranteeing human rights in the DPRK.

    As mentioned in the report, the DPRK has consistently enforced policies for the people from the very day of its foundation on the principle of putting the rights and interests of the popular masses above all and making them absolute and has exerted every possible effort to guarantee the people genuine rights.

    All the people in the DPRK, therefore, feel proud of the world’s most advantageous human rights system and policies such as universal compulsory education, free medical care and free provision of housings that are enforced in the country, and are striving hard to defend and further consolidate the man-centered socialist system.

    By clearly reflecting the human rights system and situation in the DPRK, the report proves that the anti-DPRK human rights campaign of the U.S. and hostile forces is acts detrimental to guaranteeing and promoting the rights of the people.

    The report also clarifies the efforts and stand of the DPRK on international cooperation for promoting human rights.

    Consistent is the stand of the DPRK to have genuine dialogue and cooperation in the field of human rights and contribute to promoting human rights in the world. The DPRK has never opposed dialogue on human rights but maintained the stand to have a candid exchange of views with the countries truly concerned for the human rights issue.

    But genuine human rights dialogue and cooperation have not been effected due to those forces abusing the human rights issue as a means for attaining such sinister politically-motivated purposes as interference in internal affairs and overturn of social systems.

    The release of the study report on the human rights situation in the country is an indication of its will to creditably fulfill its responsibility in the field of human rights and a positive measure to promote international cooperation.

    The report will help clearly understand how false and unrealistic the rumors about the DPRK floated by hostile forces on the basis of fabrications.

    The major source of misinformation about human rights performance in the DPRK are “testimonies” notably made by anti-DPRK fanatics who defected from the north. Those who cook up groundless stories about human rights to get a petty amount of money are without exception criminals who fled to the south for fear of facing a legal punishment after committing indelible crimes in their hometowns and immoral guys who are disqualified to talk about human rights.

    Their inhuman nature will be disclosed sooner or later.

    Whoever echoes what was uttered by the riff-raffs even after reading the report released by the Association must be imbeciles lacking the ability to judge the reality or tricksters seeking to attain sinister purposes even by making far-fetched assertions.

    The U.S. and other Western countries should not pull up the DPRK over its human rights but face up to the situation as it is and repent of their own poor human rights records.

    The DPRK will continue to exert its utmost efforts to foil the anti-DPRK human rights campaign of the hostile forces and meet all their challenges, step up the peaceful economic construction, steadily improve the people’s living standard and thus provide the people with better conditions for enjoying their rights.

The report will help set right the wrong views by widely introducing the DPRK’s human rights policies and situation and contribute to promoting genuine cooperation in the field of human rights.
