UN June Conference World Financial and Economic Crisis- Draft Outcome Document

The UN released this draft document today, for people to think about before the June 1-3 mtg.

There are quite a number of good ideas put together here.
In my mind, the status quo is entrenching itself otherwise.

I'm thinking it would be helpful to raise/ go over questions that come to mind from this draft.
for one, it suggests new global structures, yet we know these can only be as effective as the current raft of 192 countries are.
Still, the governance of 192 countries, democratized, is better than the dominance of a few under the exclusive control of a financial elite as is currently the case.
and we don't want this casino to drag out any longer, for the sake of people and the earth.
the military dominance of some still holds, but here's a chance to see what else can be practically done by enough people around the world holding power to account.
your thoughts?

GO UNO GO!!!

The current set of crises-economic,military, political, environmental,pandemical- may hasten the transformation of capitalism. The UMO is one part of the supersturcture prone to reflect changes at the base as  the peoples of the world and their different organizations=unions, parties, governments,nations--pushfor fpr analysis and action.

This thread seems to be in the wrong forum. Moving to international news.
