Our Outcry Must Not Come Too Late!

Our Outcry Must Not Come Too Late!

This statement was presented at the March 22, 2024 meeting of the International Peace Coalition, where its immediate distribution internationally was a central topic of discussion.

We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late.

—Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Let us mince no words. The world is now on a direct, short path to thermonuclear war. Don’t blame Russia, or China. We, in the trans-Atlantic world, are the problem, and with us lies the solution. If we continue to wait to “see what happens,” if we want for those in the “military-monetary power structure” to come to their senses, we will be too late to stop humanity’s last war. The time to act, is now.

On Sunday, March 17, at the conclusion of the Russian Presidential elections, Vladimir Putin, responding to a reporter’s question regarding French President Macron’s Feb. 26 comments that deployment of NATO ground troops to Ukraine could not be ruled out, said: “It is clear to everyone that this will be one step away from a full-scale World War III. I think hardly anyone is interested in this.” However, as the late Israeli politician Abba Eban, once said,  “never underestimate the factor of insanity in politics.”

The Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights lists 110 armed conflicts in the world today. This is the result of today’s imperial “rules-based order.” The obscenity of the war in Gaza, which rationalizes tens of thousands of children being mass-murdered for crimes and causes of which they are entirely innocent, requires us to stand up and act. We must disrupt the plans of the merchants and missionaries of death, that assure us that “they must destroy Gaza (or, for that matter, Ukraine) in order to save it.” 

International Peace Coalition founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche has said:

A new world economic order is emerging, involving the vast majority of the countries of the Global South. They have declared: Colonialism is over! The European nations and the U.S. must not fight this effort, but, by joining hands with the developing countries, must cooperate to shape the next epoch of the development of the human species to become a renaissance of the highest and most noble expressions of creativity!

This cannot be done in a world dominated by war. We need the greatest outcry against war that the world has ever seen. Therefore, the International Peace Coalition declares a red alert mobilization. The war for humanity must be won now before the final war—the war against humanity itself—is ever fought. Demonstrations, boycotts and exposés of the death merchants, letters and statements from and to institutions, vigils, and every imaginable creative, non-violent direct action to disrupt the world’s rendezvous with doomsday is needed now.
