Dear Friends:

We are sending you the SANTIAGO DECLARATION-THE HUMAN RIGHT TO PEACE.
The Declaration is the culmination of years of discussion and debate among global peace activists to finally enshrine in international law the recognition of humanity’s centuries longing for peace and security.

This is a people’s initiative, another track in the struggle for peace. It lays the foundation for the continued demand to the end of the wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq and the conflicts plaguing the world. It forcefully outlines the responsibilities of governance that declares the truism “peace is not only the absence of war”.

The SANTIAGO DECLARATION has been introduced to the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. From that forum it must make its way to the General Assembly of the United Nations. To achieve its goal, the acceptance by the forum of nations, it requires the support
of world public opinion, benefactors in life of the vital provisions of the Declaration.

We urge dissemination of the Declaration among your members, full discussion of its contents and the significance of its implications for the struggle for peace. We ask for your support and voice in favor of its final adoption.

May we thank you in advance for your understanding and co-operation.

Yours in Peace,

Alfred L. Marder
President
