P.M. THATCHER DEPUTY SCORES UN IMPOTENCE
IN REPLY TO WORLD CITIZEN GARRY DAVIS
World Government Head Claims 7 Heads of State
In Paris Endorse World Law
TOKYO --Garry Davis, founder/head of the 36-year-old World Government of World Citizens, (pop. 350,000) with headquarters in Washington, D.C., wrote the 7 heads of state meeting in Paris in July that since they maintained in their final communique that the "rule of law" was the necessary concomitant of protection for human rights and fundamental freedoms of "every citizen," that "you implicitly acknowledge the legitimacy of world law and its institutional framework as the sine qua non of that protection..." (See attached letter).
In a letter dated 7 August 1989, the Private Secretary of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Caroline Slocock, replied that "Although article 1(7) (sic) of the UN Charter precludes the UN from intervening in matters which are 'essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any state', members of the Organisation have long acknowledged that human rights are a legitimate international concern." (See letter attached).
"This reply exposes once again the national duplicity," Davis said today, "where the British Prime Minister, along with her fellow state leaders, pretend to support the UN while admitting its impotence to cope with world problems facing the world public."
At the World Conference Against A & H Bombs in Hiroshima on August 5, Davis proclaimed that all "mundialized" communities - which included Hiroshima, Nagasaki and Tokyo - were henceforth "protected by sovereign world law represented by the World Government of World Citizen." (See Proclamation attached).
The former B-17 US bomber pilot distributed the Proclamation to the World Conference of Mayors being held at the same time. He issued an honorary World Passport to Mayors Araki and Motoshima of Hiroshima and Nagasaki respectively. (See attached statement)
A copy of the Proclamation was addressed to Emperor Akihito by letter today. (See attached letter).
