Reasons to Embrace the Principles of the Earth Charter by ECYG coordinator


Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.


Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

So whatever affects we down here in Africa, definitely affects the natural and moral institutional law everywhere in the globe.

Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial “outside agitator” idea.

Anyone who lives inside the boundaries of this global world can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.

So we have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions and activities of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.

The world is been degraded by its dwellers, the people have neglected their moral and natural laws and so injustice is ruling the land.

Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to be co-workers with each other under a common culture of peace and nonviolence and under the Moral law of God.

Without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right. Now is the time to make real the promise of democracy and transform our pending global environments elegy into a creative psalm of new and friendly innovations, and progress. Now is the time to lift our national and global policy from the quicksand of racial, cultural and political injustice to be solid rock of human dignity.

Let us all with a combined and conscious effort save the land and the atmosphere from giving up on us:
Let us remember the natural and the moral laws of our land.
