Helga Zepp-LaRouche. Open Letter to Heads of States at the UNGA — You Must Act to Preserve World Peace!

Leo —

The following open letter was drafted by Helga Zepp-LaRouche for immediate circulation in New York City at the UN and to the rest of the world. It will be circulated as a leaflet by the Schiller Institute, with Helga's Ten Principles o­n the back of the leaflet.


Open Letter to Heads of States at the United Nations General Assembly

You Must Act to Preserve World Peace!

by Helga Zepp-LaRouche,

founder of the Schiller Institute
September 20, 2023


         Who can deny that the protection of World Peace is the most important obligation of governments? Two World Wars in the 20th century, and the dropping of two nuclear bombs o­n Hiroshima and Nagasaki, brought death and suffering to those affected countries, clearly unimaginable by many leaders and politicians today.

          But never has the entire existence of mankind been in greater danger than today. The strategic war between the entire West and Russia over Ukraine has come close to a military stalemate, and that leaves o­nly two options: either an escalation which threatens the use of nuclear weapons, or the immediate end of the war through diplomatic negotiations!

         If new levels of lethal weapons, such as Taurus cruise missiles and nuclear capable F-35 stealth bombers are deployed, as now planned, it threatens to lead to a Europeanization of the war, and beyond. If it comes to a global nuclear war, mankind will end in the ensuing 10-years of nuclear winter, as will virtually all life o­n the planet end with it.

          Where other than the UN General Assembly should this be raised? The heads of state participating in this session of this unique institution represent all nations in the world, and must address this existential danger. When the present organization of the world has led to the danger of the extinction of civilization, then that organization must be changed! The world needs a new international security and development architecture, which takes into account the security and development needs of every single country o­n earth. Such a new architecture must create conditions that protect and nourish the lives of all people, and protect the potential of every person as a creative individual. This means not o­nly people living today, but also the lives of future generations!

          The world is presently experiencing an epochal change. The period of approximately 600 years of colonialism is coming to an end and is being replaced with a new world economic system that will allow life with dignity for all. The realization of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), the largest infrastructure and development program in the history of mankind, has created the conditions in which more and more countries can overcome poverty and underdevelopment. The recent expansion of the BRICS, in Johannesburg, South Africa, to which now around 40 additional countries are in the process of applying for membership, and subsequent conferences in St. Petersburg, Jakarta, New Delhi and Vladivostok have demonstrated the breathtaking speed, with which a new system is emerging. In addition, the efforts to create new credit mechanisms for development, such as the BRICS New Development Bank (NDB) now becoming the “great bank of the Global South,” are welcomed and necessary.

          But as of now the danger of the world separating into two blocs has not yet been overcome, and such a separation would continue the danger of the same kind of geopolitical division that was the cause of the world wars in the 20th Century. Therefore, there is this urgent appeal to the countries of the Global North, that they must support the aspiration of the Global Majority to establish a just new world economic order for all!

          This moment in history represents a greater challenge and chance than the end of the Cold War, to create a better world. Let us not miss that unique chance!

  Dear Leo, 

We were not able to read your excellent greetings (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=531) to the International Day of Peace rally (in the UN) or any other of the greetings because of time permit issues.

However, we have posted your greetings along with the others to the Schiller Institute website. The link is below. Thank you very much for your contribution.

Best regards,

Дорогой Лео,

Мы не смогли прочитать ваше прекрасное поздравление (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=558) на митинге по случаю Международного дня мира (в ООН) как и другие поздравления из-за нехватки времени.

Однако Ваше поздравление вместе с другими мы разместили на сайте Института Шиллера. Ссылка ниже. Большое спасибо за ваш вклад.

С наилучшими пожеланиями,

BRICS+ Spheronics True Peace

Dear Kevin,

The GGHA is sincerely grateful to you and the Schiller Institute in a whole for your excellent publication of our congratulations o­n the International Day of Peace (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=558) at a rally in New York, at the UN o­n the Schiller Institute website (above).

In turn, we are pleased to announce the publication of the inspiring “Open Letter to Heads of States at the UN General Assembly: YOU MUST ACT TO SAVE GLOBAL PEACE!” of Helga Larouche mentioning the BRICS expansion as the “breakneck speed with which a new world system is emerging” example o­n our website. It is here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=1157.

The historical time of global depression of the traditional “primary economy”, stagnating centuries-old neo-colonialism, inequality, hegemonism, monopolarity, violence and war is over!

Kevin, your message was published in responses to our project “Gandhian Spheronics for BRICS+” here: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=1152

With the hope of deepening our peacekeeping cooperation in the Gandhian spheronics.
"Let's do great things together!"




БРИКС+ Истинный Мир Сфероники


Дорогой Кевин,

ГГСГ искренне благодарен вам и Институту Шиллера в целом за вашу отличную публикацию нашего поздравления на Международный День Мира (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=558) на митинге в Нью Йорке, в ООН на сайте Института Шиллера (dsit).

В свою очередь, мы рады сообщить о публикации вдохновляющего «Открытого письма главам государств на Генеральной Ассамблее ООН: ВЫ ДОЛЖНЫ ДЕЙСТВОВАТЬ, ЧТОБЫ СОХРАНИТЬ ГЛОБАЛЬНЫЙ МИР!» Хельги Ларуш с упоминанием расширения БРИКС как примера «головокружительной скорости, с которой возникает новая мировая система» на нашем сайте здесь: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=1157.

Историческое время мировой депрессии традиционной «первичной экономики», стагнирующей многовековой неоколониализм, неравенство, гегемонизм, однополярность, насилие и войны закончилось!

Кевин, ваше сообщение опубликовано в откликах на наш проект «Гандианская сфероника для БРИКС+» здесь: https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=ru_c&key=1050

С надеждой на углубление нашего миротворческого сотрудничества в Гандианской сферонике.
«Давайте делать великие дела вместе

Дружески, Лев
