As you prepare for the G20 summit on July 7–8 , 2017 in Hamburg, Germany, I write you with the sense of extreme urgency.
Today the whole world lives in the shivers of extreme exacerbation of militarism, belligerence and intolerance that threaten the Planet's very survival. Along with a number of peace-loving people, I appeal to your reason and moral courage to include in the Summit's agenda a dialogue on how best to assure the Safety and Health of the Planet with freedom, prosperity and dignity for all nations as the UN Charter commands.
I urge you to support the initiative of a NEW DIALOGUE on GLOBAL PEACE IN THE SCIENTIFIC PARADIGM formulated on the site of the Global Harmony Association
Please voice your support for this initiative to terminate the endless arms race and escalation of war rhetoric which may lead to a nuclear annihilation of the world by accident if not design.
At the time when the governments of leading democracies are in disarray, the only way that remains open for the ordinary citizens of all countries is to appeal to the sanity and moral courage of an assembly of political leaders who hold the keys of peace and war.
Only the New Dialogue on Global Peace is able to "Shift the arms race into a peace race," as the peace champion Martin Luther King Jr. bequeathed to us. We do not see ANY OTHER WAY to ensure this most necessary shift and to meet the most vital challenge to humanity in the 21st century!
