Global Mubarak statement

Info:  Global Mubarak statement which has now been endorsed by the Sol Madrid Assembly and translated into quite a few languages. Statement is based on one developed and endorsed by members of Egality.org Noam Chomsky Michael Hardt Vandana Shiva and others for the G20, and alongside Assemblies and groups worldwide (who are giving it great feedback so far) we are now asking them (the global writers) to re-endorse in the context of Oct15th below.  With this document we are hoping to build a stronger platform between Europe and the Middle East and between global writers and grassroots movements. And ideally perhaps we can all then call for a global day of action fro Dec10th World Human Rights Day and an even better text with this one as a foundation to further unite the revolutions! 

Statement: On 15th October 2011, united in our diversity, united for global
change, we demand global democracy: global governance by the people,
for the people.  Inspired by our sisters and brothers in Tunis, Cairo,
Bengazi, Daraa, Palestine-Israel, Spain and Greece, we too call for a
regime change: a global regime change. We will not come to global
institutions, hat in hand, begging for policy change. In the words of
Vandana Shiva, the Indian activist, today we demand replacing the G8
with the whole of humanity -  the G 7Billion.
These are our global Mubarak, our global Assad, our global Gaddafi:
the IMF, the WTO, global markets, multinational banks, the G8\G20, the
European Central Bank, the UN Security Council, the World Bank, the
Basel Committee on bank regulations and other undemocratic
international institutions. Like Mubarak and Assad, these institutions
must not be allowed to run people’s lives without their consent.
We are all born equal, rich or poor, woman or man. Every African and
Asian is equal to every European and American. Our global institutions
must reflect this, or be overturned.
Today, like the Mexican Zapatistas, we say "Ya basta! Aqui el pueblo
manda y el gobierno obedece": Enough! Here the people command and
global institutions obey! Like the Spanish Tommalaplaza we say
"Democracia Real Ya": Real global democracy now!"
Today we call the citizens of the world: let us globalize Tahrir
Square! Let us globalise Puerta del Sol!"
