11:30 am We’re glad to have with us today Mr Takis Hadjigeorgiou, to give us an insight of his views on Humanitarian issues at times when “the whole planet is coming to a new stage of complexity”.
“We need to find our sense of belonging.”
Concerned by what is happening to Syria in the last five years, with millions of people being slaughtered, with over 5 millions of people being forced to leave their homeland with most of them drowning in the Mediterranean sea, “Half of those who survived lost their ability to communicate, they preferred to stay alongside the corpses of their loved ones”.
“Is there anyone who can say with certainty that the fish we consume have not been fed with human meat?”
Referring to the Cyprus problem, he emphasizes the need to understand and differentiate the meanings of “Globalization” and “Universality”, as they are fundamental human characteristics towards a better future.
Expanding on what has been happening in Palestine over the past 60 years, states his surprise to the overwhelming number of people found in sorrow under the occupation.
“We’re all humans and aspiring to survive, this s the glue that binds us all together”
Alarmed by the food shortages and drought in Somalia, he expresses his concern on the MONSANTO company becoming a toxicity to the face of today’s globalization, implanting non-viable seeds and urging artificial demand.
“Globalization is fraud with political correctness.”
On a planet where millions of people steal millions of euros, we’re being used. “NSA is the real Big Brother watching us day and night. They know everything.” We need to decide whether to “Work for them, or stand against them.” It is difficult to resist to the good salary, but it is even more difficult to become a whistle-blower. And many are imprisoned for speaking the truth.
“Whenever we’re presented with the choice to decide, let’s do it correctly. We have to continue the legacy of universality, fairness, solidarity and compassion towards one another and the environment.”
“Act locally, while thinking globally.”
“There is hope to change the future, and that hope is you.”
