PLAN for WOMEN to Rise-Up as the PEACEMAKERS



Namaste, Salam, Shalom, Peace, Paz, Pyeongwha, Heping, Heiwa, Pace, Mir,



 



Over the past 16 years, I am honored to say that I developed a plan for WOMEN to unite the people of the world and lead a new global peace movement!  I recently presented the plans for to U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.  The plan is for non-governmental women leaders to ask women to be the “first” to rise up and unite as the PEACEMAKERS!



 



It is time for women to take their destiny and the destiny of the world into their own hands.  The plan is called a Global Movement of Nonviolence, For the Children (GMofNV).  A GMofNV will be implemented by an initiative to “Reach into Every Household” called a CALL to WOMEN, a World-Wide Unity Campaign.  The plans are designed to entice the people,all the religions, movements, and mayors and community leaders to “unite!”



 



Since 2015, women have been uniting:  Women Crossed the DMZ in KoreaWomen marched in Jerusalem (prototype), the Women’s March, and the #MeToo movement.  These movements, together with March for our Lives, the Poor People’s Campaign, and the Families Belong Together movement, have paved the way, set the stage, and are in perfect alignment for WOMEN to influence world affairs and set a precedent for all time!  



 



The Kavanaugh vs Ford hearings have illustrated the social, political, and cultural divide of people in the U.S. and the world.  It is time to unite for the good of humanity and the planet!



 



Hello.  My name is Andre.  I am a man, a person, 67 years old, who believes society can change from a male-dominated society to a partnership society (cultural transformation theory from the The Chalice and the Blade by Riane Eisler) and am dedicated to help bring it to fruition. 



 



Riane Eisler wrote to me, “I was moved by your deep understanding of my work, your quotes from Chalice, and your commitment to empowering women. Your initiative is great...”



 



A GMofNV is more than just a peace plan – it is a plan of good will and trust.  The plans are ready and the mechanisms are in place.  A GMofNV is one step away from being implemented. 



 



I have networked with women leaders from around the world – planting seeds.  The last step is enlisting the women leaders!   When women take the world stage promoting nonviolence, they will change the world and influence ALL WOMEN’S ISSUES!



 



The intricacies are complex, but there is simplicity in starting the movement, as evidenced by the Women’s March on Washington.  Truth to Power:  If women do not promote nonviolence, patriarchy will never change.  This is a request for women to ENLIST THE WOMEN LEADERS to start a GMofNV and issue a CALL to WOMEN!



 



Peace and Love,



Andre

SUPPORT STATEMENTS



 



Marianne Williamson – Author, Activist, and Spiritual Leader: “What you have created is so remarkably relevant to everything that's going on in the world. I join with you in hoping that the women of the world unite, and unite in time, to lead humanity back to its heart.



 



Gila Svirsky - Co-founder of Coalition for Women for Peace and Women in Black, “I completely agree with your vision and overall approach – to mobilize women to lead the way to peace.  This has been core to our peace activism in Israel for almost 20 years.”          



 



Louise Diamond - Author, Activist – “Andre, Thanks for sending the information on your wonderful project.  The children are indeed a unifying force, and women are indeed the active agents of a most great peace.  Your GMofNV/Call to Women can enliven the spirit of peace that we so desperately need on the planet in these days.”



 



Howard Zinn - Author, Activist, Historian - (Howard was my confidante) – “Your ‘Call to Women’ is excellent. Well written, clear, strong.  No doubt women represent non-violence best.”



 



Noam Chomsky – Author, Activist:  “I hope your effort achieves the resonance it should.”



 



Helen Caldicott – Author, World Peace Activist, Nuclear Abolitionist, "I think this is a very good idea." (The plan is based on her original idea of uniting women)



 



Federico Mayor, former Director General of UNESCO wrote, “The world needs a peace movement now!  Yes, right now.  Otherwise, it can be too late.  We are facing challenges that are potentially irreversible and therefore humanity can reach points of no return.  I fully support your initiative.”



 



 



 



QUOTES



 



Naomi Klein, author, activist, and authority on the environment wrote, “… strengthening the threads tying together our various issues and movements – is, I would argue, the most pressing task of anyone concerned with social and economic justice.”



 



Oprah Winfrey Quote in People Magazine wrote, “What I’m looking for is some kind of leadership to come out of this to say, ‘This is what we want. This is what has to change, and these are the steps that we need to take to make these changes, and this is what we’re willing to do to get it.’ ”



 



Jill Stein, Presidential Candidate of the Green Party said, “The challenge of our era is to bring our movements together so we’re working with a common agenda and to some extent a common strategy.”



 



Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and High Commissioner of Human Rights said in a TED TALK that we need “momentum from people around the world to say we want action now, we want to change course, we want a safe world for future generations, a safe world for our children and our grandchildren, and we’re all in this together.” 



 



David Krieger, President of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation wrote, “…the people united are a superpower that can take charge of our planet.”



 



Nobel Peace Laureate Leymah Gbowee said at the DMZ, “We have to do something—to turn the world upside down for permanent peace.”

The following strategy is planned:   (or variations thereof)

Gloria Steinem enlists OPRAH WINFREY



            Which yields à Celebrities and Dignitaries
