NAW – No Airborne Weapons

Text by Dartwill Aquila

No weapons from the air, not bullets, bombs or missiles from helicopters, planes or drones. That’s a start. We want peace! Get it? We’re not asking. We want peace and we aim to get it. No weapons from the air. Innocent people pay too high a price. We stand with the innocent. We stand with the great majority of humanity. We want peace. We can start by eliminating aggressive, civilian destructive weapons such as those pouring death and destruction from the skies.
NAW – Make the world a no-fly zone.

To become a NAWior, you need not register, pay a fee, submit passwords or supply any information. But you must spread the word. That’s it!

Peace. The great majority of the people of the world want peace. That’s the will of the majority. Peace would be democracy if the will of the people were enacted. We get instead more and more violent conflicts and war crimes.
We, the people want peace. You who call yourselves our representatives are either incompetent or corrupt. Where’s our peace? I know it’s not in your hands. I therefore don’t recognize your legitimacy. We want peace, you’re giving us war.

I wasn’t serious when I asked, “Where’s our peace?” I no longer ask anything of you. I tell. We want peace and are determined to get it. We’re on our way.

I’d like to recommend a few minutes reading, The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is our law and all of those who trample on human rights should be marched off to prison. Read it. It’s the “common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations”. It’s our law. It’s the people’s law. Read it and become an authority on universal human rights. Then judge this law against the policies of the prevailing order. We who hold the human rights to be wholesome and necessary for a peaceful world are appalled by the comparison.

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.

We seem to have been going in the opposite direction since the adaptation of the universal rights in 1948.

John Lennon’s famous song Give Peace a Chance is flawed by the word “give”. Who is supposed to “give” peace a chance? John would be approaching 75 if he lived today. He might write a new song entitled along the lines, “Let’s Make Peace, NAWiors!”
