Danellandia proposes all organizations and individuals that fight against weapons and for peace to join forces and to ask Unicef to start a case before the International Court of Justice of the United Nations against the weapons industry.
Why Unicef? Because its aim is to make a better world for all children wherever. Our children want a world that is safe for them to live in.
A world with no or less weapons would make for such a better world. Educating people not to use weapons would largely contribute to peace.
The weapons industry is very powerful and a large employer. But the resources spent on weapons and the destruction of life and material should be used to invest in constructive activities like education, Nature care, development aid, social welfare... Workers in the weapons industry could be retrained for positive jobs. The satisfaction gained from these jobs is much higher than from jobs leading to the destruction of lives and Nature.
Below is a basic statement of the case against the weapons industry.
making lethal weapons
living on destruction and death
contributing to death and injuries
being guided by greed
inciting people to use violence
facilitating the killing and injuring of people
facilitating the destruction of material
less weapons would mean less deaths
a lot of deaths are not related to (self)-defence
weapons are used to kill and not solely to defend
a weapons culture contributes to deaths
deaths and injuries to people
destruction of material
50% of Research & Development in the arms industry:
to be invested in peace promotion, starting in education and in
conflict analysis and resolution
to be invested in life protection activities
to be invested in the help of victims
to be invested in Nature care
making the production and use of lethal weapons obsolete
making this world a world of human values
