EU launch – action/2015 with Civil Society Alliance for the European Year for Development 2015

TODAY IS MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR BIRTH DAY  ANNIVERSARY 

SALUD TO EACH AND ALL OF YOU.. MY NAME IS MARTA, I AM FROM EL SALVADOR.. IN TERMS OF ACTION/2015 CAMPAIGN, IN MY COMPASS, TO LOOK FOR THE REAL AND RIGHT DIRECTION, AND FOR REAL SOLUTIONS, NOT FALSE ONES, MY NORTH,  IS THE SOUTH . TODAY IS THE ANNIVERSARY OF MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR…. WE STILL ARE ABOUT THE DREAM.. 

From where I sit, I see and read the signs – and beyond the very grave, major and global  existing crises, which are there and getting worse, the racists attacks, the economic and oil wars, the migration issues the world over, the number of wars is increasing.. and with the situation and the response to what happend in Paris.. I see that it is cold war all over, but worse, and  much more dangerous–
Please do remember this: when the elephants and their ” little” elephants fight.. the grass suffers.. and who is the grass? are they not the billions of peoples who are wrongly referred to as the poor, marginalized, vulnerable, voiceless, invisible?  etc. etc.. ? is it not for all peoples and especially for the billions generally excluded that the MDGs, SDGs are to be created and really work for? This is what  the UN SECRETARY GENERAL in his synthesis report called  “The Road to Dignity by 2030: Ending Poverty by 2030.. so dignity, decent, meaningful life for all, which we must acknowledge depends on  prioritizing the Care of the Planet #action/2015 #post-2015 #BANKIMOON
Effective work is needed, transformation from the bottom up, from personal and home,  to local communities to the global.  We need to press the adminstration of government at all levels,  to implement all that would guarantee the care of planet and peoples, this is every day, always and all ways.. week by week, the whole year,  year after year.
Let us be about it.. that is the commitment that this symbolic ACTION/2015 MEANS for all and each that is about the ACTION/2015 LAUNCH.. THIS IS WHAT KEEPING THE EYES ON THE PRIZE MEANS!
ADELANTE.. marta benavides
