BM’nin 2030 KÜRESEL HEDEFLERİ ve ÖZELLEŞTİRMELER, NBŞ, GDO & SAĞLIK Bölüm – 1

Derleyen: Naci KAPTAN

Türkiye’de uygulanmakta olan tarım ve özelleştirme politikaları BM’nin 2030 yılı hedeflerinle uyuşuyor mu ?
Bunun yanıtını verebilmek için ülkemizde gittikçe ivme kazanarak artan özelleştirmelerin  topluma olan etkilerini BM’nin 20130 HEDEFLERİ ışığında irdelemek gerektir.

 

 BM’nin SÜRDÜRÜLEBİLİR KALKINMA HEDEFLERİ NELERDİR?
Sürdürülebilir Kalkınma Hedefleri, diğer bir deyişle Küresel Hedefler, yoksulluğu ortadan kaldırmak, gezegenimizi korumak ve tüm insanların barış ve refah içinde yaşamasını sağlamak için evrensel eylem çağrısıdır. Bu 17 Hedef, Binyıl Kalkınma Hedeflerinin başarılarının üzerine inşa edilmekte; bir yandan da diğer önceliklerin yanı sıra iklim değişikliği, ekonomik eşitsizlik, yenilikçilik, sürdürülebilir tüketim, barış ve adalet gibi yeni alanları içeriyor. Hedefler birbiriyle bağlantılıdır; bir hedefte başarının anahtarı, birbiriyle ortak yönleri olan sorunları hep birlikte ele almaktır. [Read more…]

MAHATMA GANDHI IN TUNE

Celebrating Gandhi’s 149th Birthday, and in support of The United Nations’  International Day of Nonviolence on 2 October, which is ‘the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi for whom non-violence was at the center of his life and thought.’
Rene by WADLOW, President
Association of World Citizen
“I do not believe that the spiritual law works in a field of its own.  On the contrary, it expresses itself only through the ordinary activities of life.  It thus affects the economic, the social and the political fields.
– Mohandas K. Gandhi
For Gandhi, non-violence was an expression of spiritual law, the way in which the spiritual energy of the universe manifested itself in physical form. “There is a soul force in the universe which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results.”  There were three aspects of life in which Gandhi was particularly concerned with the expression of the spiritual law of non-violence.  The first was his own personal atunement with the spiritual energy, which he sometimes called ‘God’ or ‘Truth’ or ‘Love’ but often left unnamed.  He also believed that this spiritual atunement had to be followed by the persons working closely with him — a view which often led to difficulties as many of his followers saw non-violence as an effective technique against English domination and not necessarily as a guiding principle of life.

IMPORTANCE OF AN ENABLING LEGAL ENVIRONMENT FOR PRESS FREEDOM

25th celebration of  World Press Freedom Day 2018
“KEEPING POWER IN CHECK: Media, Justice and the Rule of Law”
A free press is essential for peace, justice and human rights for all. It is crucial to building transparent and democratic societies and keeping those in power accountable.  It is vital for sustainable development.  Journalists and media workers shine a light on local and global challenges and tell the stories that need to be told. Their services to the public is invaluable.  Laws that protect independent journalism, freedom of expression and the right to information need to be adopted, implemented and enforced.  Crimes against journalists must be prosecuted.  On World Press Freedom Day 2018, I call on governments to strengthen press freedom, and to protect journalists. Promoting a free press in standing up for our right to truth.”
– H.W. Mr. António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General

“Dünya Bankası, artan yoksulluktan küreselleşme politikalarını sorumlu tutmak bir yana, bu politikalar uyarınca gerçekleştirilen reformların “yeterince başarılı” biçimde yürütülmemesinin yoksulluğu arttırdığını saptıyor.”

SİLAH ÜRETİMİ
BM TÜRKİYE DERGİSİ  Temmuz – Eylül 2012 tarihli sayısında BM genel Sekreteri Ban Ki-moon silahlanma için şöyle diyordu:
“Aşırı silahlanmış dünyamızda barış için ayrılan kaynaklar yetersiz kalıyor.  Uluslararası silah ticaretiyle ilgili yetersiz seviyedeki yasalar insanların korkunç bedeller ödemesine yol açıyor. Geçtiğimiz ay, birbiri ile çatışan çıkarlar bu alanda büyük bir ihtiyaç haline gelen uluslararası bir anlaşmaya varılmasına engel oldu. Buna ilave olarak, küresel boyutta güçlü ve artan bir şekilde desteklenmesine rağmen, nükleer silahsızlanma çabalarında da ilerleme sağlanamadı.”
