US Can’t Trample on Human Rights of Others to Protect Itself, Brazil President Tells UN

Brazil president Dilma RousseffBrazilian president Dilma Rousseff proposed today, in New York, at the opening of the 68th Session of the UN General Assembly, the creation of a multilateral agreement between nations that would rule the Internet and protect its data.

According to the Brazilian leader, the US espionage of Brazilian citizens, as well as the country’s authorities and businesses, goes beyond the relationship between countries, affects the international community and requires a response.

“The information and telecommunication technologies can not be a new battleground between states. This is the time for us to create the conditions to prevent that cyber space be used as a weapon of war through espionage, sabotage, and attacks against the system and infrastructure of other countries,” Rousseff said.

“The United Nations should play a leading role in the effort to regulate the behavior of states vis-Γ -vis these technologies and the importance of the Internet for building democracy in the world.”

Rousseff said the revelations about espionage activities caused outrage and repudiation from the world public opinion, especially in Brazil, which was the target of such spying, including to business information of high strategic economic value.

The Brazilian president stressed that a sovereignty cannot be used over another. “The right to security of the citizens of a country can never be secured by the violation of the human rights of citizens of another country. It’s still worse when private companies are suffering this espionage,” she said.

According to her, the arguments that the illegal interception of information and data are intended to protect the nations against terrorism don’t make any sense.

Before the start of the session, Rousseff met with the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon. He and John Ashe, chair of this session of the UN General Assembly, opened the event before the Brazilian president’s speech.

The tradition that the first speaker at the UN General Assembly is a Brazilian started with Oswaldo Aranha, head of the delegation of Brazil, who opened the first special session in 1947.

Dilma arrived in New York, Monday morning. At night, she had two meetings in the hotel where she is staying. The first one with former US President Bill Clinton and another with the president of Argentina, Cristina Kirchner.

Rousseff is also expected to participates in the first meeting of the High Level Forum on Sustainable Development, which gathers, environment ministers every year and heads of state each four years.

The objective is to implement the goals set in the final document of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio +20, named “The Future We Want.”

The countries pledged at the conference in Rio de Janeiro, in 2012, to define concrete and measurable goals for the elimination of poverty and hunger in the world with sustainable development.

    Only smart university students can emphasize the differences between all kind of formats in composing short stories at every semester they study in. They prefer best writing companies able to make observations of modern life actions and point out particularities that can be key ones to write my research paper on human rights as http://papersmart.net/write-my-paper.html ([url]http://papersmart.net/write-my-paper.html[/url]) does.

    The Beast is still at large
    Since George H. Bush was president, the US secret State agencies had played a double role until today when each person is constantly monitored by NSA and other agencies to report information not to the US Government but to feed with all data the embryo of a new superpower. An Anglo-Judaic group of Zionists, like a hidden parallel government, with George W. Bush still today at the head of secret services in the US, UK and Israel, is the destabilizing force behind most terror events and with classified information at disposal and a private army is planning what now would seem unthinkable to many. A War of Religion and chaos everywhere have been plotted, with 9/11 being the catalyst event, so that desperate people will soon invoke a New World Order without even knowing what that is. Not the protests or the violence in the streets could ever oppose such Plan relying on its long tentacles and the short memory of the people. TV, newspapers and other media will do the rest to confuse the people. After all, the surprise should not be totally unexpected. Whether you Believe in the fable of the Bible and the Book of Revelation with its AntiChrist or you simply understood what is going on, in the end, there is only one individual that you can not afford to keep out of sight: George W. Bush. Many are the marionettes already working for him, but, only after the grandiose funeral for the death of his father George H. Bush, the Beast will be ready with a new trick of the tail. The mosque Al Aqsa will be destroyed and a New World Order will have its pharaoh, this tyranny will enslave everyone to bring the smile only in the land of Israel, at least in the beginning. As extreme as it may seem the single alternative Solution is to drop all geographical borders and to have the global recognition of Equality for a new Humankind. It will take a new Awareness.
