Communiqué de presse du Mouvement Démocratie Réelle Paris, Indigné-e-s de la Défense.
Après l'occupation du temple de la finance et de la spéculation, les Indigné-e-s se tournent à présent vers la question des Droits de l'Homme : diverses actions sont prévues ce 10 décembre.
Premier bilan : malgré des conditions climatiques difficiles, le blocus et le harcèlement permanent des forces de l'ordre, cette action dépasse les espérances. Un grand nombre de personnes nous ont apporté un fort soutien logistique et moral ; le campement a permis de considérables échanges avec des habitués du quartier d'affaire et des sympathisants de toute la région parisienne, de France et d'Europe.
Il a aussi été un espace au sein duquel beaucoup de personnes, jusqu'alors exclues, ont pu trouver de quoi manger, partager avec les autres et retrouver simplement des raisons d´avoir de l'espoir en l'avenir. Cette expérience artisanale et humaine a été possible grâce à la contribution de milliers d'anonymes solidaires que nous tenons à remercier, notamment par l'intermédiaire des médias.
Un mois après le début de ce campement,  l'Assemblée des indigné-e-s a décidé d'y maintenir symboliquement une occupation avec un nombre de personnes plus réduit sur place. Des points d'accueil et de participation sont en création dans différents endroits de la capitale.
Les Indigné-e-s en appellent désormais à une nouvelle mobilisation le samedi 10 décembre à 14 heures, place de Clichy.
Lors de cet événement mondial des indigné-e-s, à l'occasion du 63ème anniversaire de la Déclaration Universelle des Droits de l’Homme nous rappellerons qu'ils n’ont jamais été appliqués à l’échelle planétaire. Et nous réfléchirons tous ensemble à une « Déclaration des Droits de l’Humain applicable à tous ».
La marche partira à 14 heures de la place de Clichy pour aller jusqu’à la place de Stalingrad où aura lieu une Assemblée Populaire. Trajet prévu : Place de Clichy, Boulevard de Clichy, Boulevard de Rochechouart, Boulevard de la Chapelle, Boulevard de la Villette, Place de la Bataille de Stalingrad.
Nous allons lentement parce que nous allons loin !
Cordialement.
Les indigné-e-s de la Défense, Mouvement Démocratie Réelle Maintenant.

HELLO DEAR FRIENDS

I HOPE YOU ARE ALL WELL!

Firstly I wish to apologize if I am not interacting enough with all of you, one to one on the net and I am not very active on social networks lately...
I did not find yet any volunteer to help and I had a series of mishap with my computer!

As a spiritual feminine humanitarian artistic, my hands are full and  lately, since  I am spending more time in France, I am also working at connecting and reconnecting with the local community!

I am not a computer wizard and I also wish to apologize for the bad technical quality of my videos since I am filming everything myself with a cheap camescope then mix with a very basic software, which is not my job and qualification either!

Until I find some volunteers, it is the only way and friends, maybe you never made a film but it really takes a lot of time
to do any small video when you must do everything on your own!

However it is essential for me to deliver the message of universal love and  hope to all of you as well as  serving other charities and individuals making a good difference in our world.


Until I can finally make my CINEMA FILMS as it is the vocation of UNIVERSAL GRACE FILMS, I am using any low budget means to bring eternal light and love to our world!


This is the reason why I am immensely proud to offer you as a Christmas present and to wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012, THIS SERIES OF NEW VIDEOS, made with lots of love for you, in my heart and I HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY THEM AND THAT SOMEWHERE, IT WILL MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIVES!

Please do not hesitate to make your comments following, since your positive view points are very precious and important to me!

Of course, if you wish to help me within my own foundation at Universal Grace Films, do not hesistate to send me a message at luce.fleury@btopenworld.com, to offer your gifts in money or in time, as for  working as a volunteer, in the areas needed, mainly for social media marketing, website, internet, fundraising, sales etc or filming and mixing, editing my videos etc
which ARE THE MOST WELCOME!

THIS IS THE NEW COMMUNIQUE DE PRESSE I JUST RECEIVED FROM LES INDIGNES
PLEASE BE MANY TO GO AND SUPPORT THEM ON THE 10 TH DECEMBER AND SEND YOUR MEDIA TEAMS IF YOU CANNOT COME TO PARIS TO GIVE THEM THE MEDIA ATTENTION AND SUPPORT THEY NEED AND DESERVE TO HELP A GOOD DIFFERENCE FOR US ALL!
ENG:
 Press Release
Démocratie Réelle Paris Movement, indignants of La Défense.
 After the occupation of the temple of finance and speculation, indignants are now turning toward the question of Human Rights: many actions are scheduled for December 10th.
First balance: despite difficult weather conditions, the blockage and the constant harassment of the police, this action exceeds all expectations. Many people gave us logistical and moral support, the camp allowed many exchanges with locals from the business district and with supporters from the whole Paris area, France and Europe.
It has been the space around which a lot of excluded persons found something to eat, to share with others, and simply retrieve reasons to believe in a future. This human & hand made experience has been possible by the contribution of many anonymous that we also want to thank through the medias.
A month after the beginning of this camp, the Assembly of indignants decided to reduce it to a symbolic occupation of the square of La Défense with fewer people. Information and participation points are being created in many spots of the city.
Now, the indignants are calling for a new mobilization Saturday, December 10 at 2pm at "Place Clichy". This is a global event organized by the indigants for the 63rd anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to remind that these rights have never been applied on a global scale. So let's think together about an "Applicable Human Rights Declaration for All".
The march will leave at 2pm from Place de Clichy and go towards Place de Stalingrad where a popular assembly will be organized. Planned route : Place de Clichy, Boulevard de Clichy, Boulevard de  Rochechouart,  Boulevard de la Chapelle, Boulevard de la Villette, Place  de la Bataille  de Stalingrad.
We go slowly because we go far!
Regards,
The Indignants of La Défense,  Démocratie Réelle Maintenant Movement.

I was privileged to interview these sincere beautiful French modern heroes at LES INDIGNES,
Parisian Branch of Occupy and I hope that you will share my enthusiasm for their courage!


I especially wish to attract your attention to the dream of Francis, volunteer at Les Indignes
who dreams to manage a CAFE in ARIZONA!
So if you can help him do his dream, do not hesitate to contact me, I will let him know personally and put him
in touch with you!

AT UGF, we like to encourage your dreams!
So it would be great if Francis could realize His dream through our help!

 IF YOU WISH TO HELP OTHERS TO SUCCEED THEIR DREAMS, HERE ARE A FEW TIPS
Since nobody is perfect and we can all be claumzy at times although sincere

There is nothing more precious than a dream, so make sure that you never mock or destroy anybody else's dream, mainly whilst pretending helping...


When you sincerely wish to help a friend realise his or her dream,
make sure you listen very well, first, with your heart, not only your head,
and that you will serve the dream of your friend, not use your friend to serve yours!

If you do not believe in his or her dream, do not insult him or her or try to dissuade him or her, because in your eyes they are not good enough, talented enough, too young or too old, etc, to do it...


Try to understand that everyone sees the same thing through
a different angle... and humbly accept that you might not see something very precious and beautiful,
they can see from their fresh unique angle...

so it is better not to help and move away rather than to
hurt someone by arrogantly destroying their dream to impose your do and dont narrow minded list!


Never judge from your height even technical or professional, the dream of somebody else.. just embrace it totally or move on...The same person, the same story, the same colour, the same flower, etc
can mean something completely different to each one of us...

This meaning is very precious and this is what makes us unique and makes our society gradually evolve towards highest good...

Each dream come true contributes to our collective inner spiritual growth,
like by adding beautiful pearls and precious multicoloured jewels to each other to build a magnificent mosaic...


This is the way I see each precious individual and
unusual performer I interview and wish to gather to make my cinema films...


 
Coming back to Occupy!

I am copying for you this short analysis, a specialist sent me for you, to help you more to understand
the deptht of the current crisis so that you can appreciate even more their courageous work, making a stand for all of us!


Income inequality is measured by the Gini coefficient, a measure of statistical dispersion developed by the Italian statistician and sociologist Corrado Gini and published in his 1912 paper "Variability and Mutability".


Op-Ed Columnist David Brooks from the New York Times wrote an intriguing article about the wrong inequality where he distinguishes the devastating impact of ENRON's War for Talent into two categories:
  • Blue Inequality and
  • Red Inequality
from the Occupy Wall Street controversy.


The share of total income going to the top 1 percent of earners, which stood at 8.9 percent in 1976, rose to 23.5 percent by 2007, but during the same period, the average inflation-adjusted hourly wage declined by more than 7 percent.

Income Inequality

Data from tax returns show that the top 1 percent of households in the United States received 8.9 percent of all pre-tax income in 1976. In 2008, the top 1 percent share had more than doubled to 21.0 percent.


Top Percent Share Of Total Pre-tax Income 1913-2008
Source: Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez, "Income Inequality in the United States, 1913-1998," Quarterly Journal of Economics, 118(1), 2003. Updated to 2008 at http://emlab.berkeley.edu/users/saez.
We have two main moments of an income inequality crash:


1929 when the top 1 percent of earners reached 23.9 percent and 2007 when the top 1 percent of earners reched 23.5 percent!







Now, I wish once again to explain some of my personal stands as a SPIRITUAL FEMININE HUMANITARIAN AND ARTISTIC!

Statistics, and I will copy following some articles you can read if you wish, show us that the majority in our global and mainly western populations are SENIOR WOMEN, however, unfortunately the same statistics are proving that THIS IS THE GROUP WHO PRECISELY IS THE MOST DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AND AT RISK OF BEING PHYSICALLY AND MORALLY ABUSED AND VICTIMISED!

It is clear that the ONE PERCENT in ECONOMIC hence POLITICAL POWER is constituted of SENIOR MALES!
THESE SAME SENIOR MALES ARE CREATING A GLOBAL SOCIETY WHERE THEY ONLY WISH TO INTERACT WITH YOUNG FEMALES AND WHERE THEY DISCRIMINATE AND OSTRACISE OLDER WOMEN AS FOR NOT BEING FLATTERING PARTNERS BECAUSE NOT SEEN AS SEXY BY THEM!!!
This is a kind of holocaust or concentration camp syndrom, since these LADIES HAVE NO CHOICE AND ARE NOT CAST OUT FOR ANY FAULT OF THEIR OWN BUT ONLY BECAUSE THEIR APPEARENCES ARE AGEING!

I agree with the Pope when he says that paedophyles are not only active in the Catholic church but are everywhere!!!

I have more than once explained that I consider this a crime against humanity victimising older women, young girls and young boys, which is also corrupting our planet and putting it in grave danger!

It is also a big lie that women grow older faster than men since the same statistics prove that WOMEN LIVE LONGER AND IN BETTER HEALTH SO THAT THEIR APPEARENCE REMAINS AS WELL YOUNGER AS THEIR BIOLOGICAL HEALTH AND BODIES ARE IN BETTER CONDITION!

This IMMORAL philosophy SOME ADDICTED SENIOR MALES KEEP PROMOTTING, comes from the idea that one must choose a NEW TOY, PLAY WITH IT, BREAK IT, THROW IT and THEN START AGAIN WITH A NEW ONE, A YOUNGER ONE, ALL OVER AND OVER AGAIN!

THIS IS WHAT HAS BEEN DONE IN OUR ECONOMIES  WITHIN THE SPOILS  SYSTEM AND  CONSUMER GOODS
STRATEGY  PUSHING  HARD AND CONTINUALLY NEW SALES ON CONSUMERS!

PROMOTTING THE CULT OF BIOLOGICAL YOUTH AND EMPTY PLASTIC, through all media, the SAME  CORRUPT PHILOSOPHY OF WASTE IS APPLYED TO WOMEN CONSIDERED MORE AND MORE LIKE OBJECTS TO CONSUME, LIKE A PRODUCT WITH A SALE BY DATE LIMITATION,  THAN LIKE DIGNIFIED EQUAL HUMAN BEINGS!

THE TREND IS, AND PLEASE CHECK STASTISTICS ONCE AGAIN, EVEN IN so called CHRISTIAN MARRIAGES,
JOEL AND KATHY DAVIDSON, GOD SAVE MY MARRIAGE, WEBSITE IS FULL OF THEM,
THAT SENIOR MEN SEE MORE AND MORE THEIR WIVES LIKE A CARPET YOU CHANGE FROM TIME TO TIME FOR A NEW ONE EXACTLY AS YOU REDECORATE YOUR HOME, FOR SOCIAL PARADING TO BE SEEN WITH A YOUNGER SPECIMEN, EVEN IF THEIR WIFE HAS NO FAULT AND IS THE BEST LOVING WIFE TO THEM,
HER OLDER APPEARENCE IS THE ONLY REASON OF THEIR DIVORCING HER!

WHILST EVERY RELIGION AND WISE SPIRITUAL PHILOSOPHY INSIST FOR SENIOR MEN NOT TO BIN THEIR FIRST WIVES BUT TO TREAT THEM FAIRLY AND LOVINGLY!!!
AND NOT TO CONFIDE IN EMPTY PLASTIC AND BIOLOGICAL YOUTH
TO CULTIVATE LUST AND GREED
BUT INSTEAD TO PRAISE AND CHOOSE INNER SPIRITUAL FEMININE VIRTUES!!!


THIS NEW TREND IS EVEN  GETTING HARDER, SINCE THESE SAME SENIOR MALES ARE TRYING TO GET RID OF THEIR OLDER WIVES WITHOUT EVEN GIVING THEM ANY FINANCIAL COMPENSATION, TRYING TO ESCAPE GIVING THEM THE FAIR HALF OF EVERYTHING THEY BOTH POSSESS AS NORMAL JUSTICE WOULD IMPLY, SINCE IT IS THROUGH THE FAITHFUL, LOYAL SERVICES AND SACRIFICES OF THEIR WIVES THAT THEY GOT WHERE THEY ARE IN OLDER AGE!

ON THE OTHER FRONTS, MALE EMPLOYERS ARE DOING EXACTLY THE SAME, KICKING OUT OF THEIR JOBS OLDER WOMEN BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT SEEN AS SEXY ANYMORE TO REPLACE THEM BY UNEXPERIENCED YOUNGER FEMALES AS LONG AS THEY LOOK SEXY!

NOW THAT WE DO NOT HAVE AS GOOD PENSIONS OR NO PENSION AT ALL,
WHAT ARE THESE OLDER WOMEN EXPECTED TO DO THEN TO SURVIVE?

THIS IS EXPOSING THE MAJORITY OF OUR POPULATION TO HOMELESSNESS or WORSE TO SUICIDE
OR TO NERVOUS BREAKDOWN MAKING OF THEM BURDENS IN COSTLY NURSING HOMES
FOR GOVERNMENTS AND FAMILY MEMBERS, SINCE THEIR CHILDREN WILL LOSE THE FAMILY HOME IF THERE IS ONE, THROUGH THIS EXPANSIVE AND INHUMAN EXCLUSION FROM A FAIR PARTICIPATION TO OUR GLOBAL SOCIETY!

THIS IS ALSO INSANE SINCE THESE LADIES ARE THE WISEST AND HAVE FOR MISSION TO  TEACH US
FEMININE SPIRITUAL VIRTUES TO BALANCE OUR WORLD WITH GOOD MALE VALUES SO TO SAVE OUR
PLANET!

IN MY VIDEOS, I PROUDLY GIVE THE EXAMPLE OF MY LONG LIFE FRIEND GENEVIEVE BARDIN
WHO I CONSIDER LIKE A MODERN FRENCH SAINT, I HOPE SHE WILL FORGIVE ME FOR THAT, SINCE SHE IS
SUCH A SWEET AND HUMBLE HEART, SHE COULD GET REALLY CROSSED FOR ME TO INTRODUCE HER THAT WAY,
ALTHOUGH SHE CONSECRATED HER WHOLE LIFE TO SERVING CHRIST AND LOVING HER NEIGHBOUR!

THIS IS ALSO INSANE BECAUSE IT ROTS YOUNGER GIRLS AND WOMEN AT THE CORE !
 TEACHING THEM WRONG IMMATURE MALE VALUES
THAT THE ONLY THING THEY MUST DO TO SUCCEED FASTER IS TO USE THEIR SEXUALITY EVEN IF NECESSARY  DESTROYING THE HAPPINESS OF AN OLDER WOMAN WITHOUT ANY MORAL GUILT!
INSTEAD OF WORKING HARD TO GROW A BETTER PERSON TO MAKE A GOOD DIFFERENCE TO OUR WORLD!

IT IS ALSO TO PROTECT THE FUTURE OF YOUNGER FEMALES THAT I MAKE SUCH STAND!

YOUNGER FEMALES ARE OBSESSED WITH THEIR APPEARENCE, DIE ANOREXIC, GO FOR PLASTIC SURGERY AT THE EARLIEST AGE etc etc BECAUSE THEY ARE SO SCARED OF GETTING OLD PHYSICALLY SINCE THEY SAW HOW THEIR MOTHERS WERE PUNISHED
BY THEIR FATHERS AND OUR SOCIETY FOR THE CRIME OF GETTING OLDER PHYSICALLY
THEY WERE TAUGHT BY SENIOR MALES THAT THEIR ONLY CAPITAL TO INVEST IN
IS THEIR PHYSICAL YOUTH AND EMPTY PLASTIC!!!!

THESE MORE EXPRIENCED SENIOR MALES FORGET TO MENTION TO THESE YOUNG UNEXPERIENCED FEMALES
THAT
  SUCH IMMORAL PRACTICES AND  REVOLTING BEHAVIOURAL CODE
WILL ONLY  STEAL THEIR YOUTH
AND DESTROY THEM
BECAUSE THE BIN IS WAITING FOR THEM AT THE END OF THE AFFAIR
TO GET A YOUNGER BETTER LOOKING TOY,
SINCE YOUNGER FEMALES TOO ARE SUFFERING FROM GRAVITY LAW AND THE CLOCK TICKING
SO THAT THE YOUNG GIRLS OF TODAY ARE THE MATURE WOMEN OF TOMORROW!

I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT THERE ARE SPIRITUAL LAWS IN OUR UNIVERSE AND THAT ONE OF THEM IS NOT TO MAKE YOUR HAPPINESS ON THE UNHAPPINESS OF SOMEONE ELSE
ANOTHER ONE IS THAT COUPLES ARE MEANT TO BE FROM A SIMILAR AGE

BECAUSE YOUNGER MALES NEED YOUNGER FEMALES TO GROW HAND IN HAND AND BUILD UP EACH OTHER
AS THEY ARE BUILDING A BETTER WORLD FOR THEIR CHILDREN

SO THAT BY TREATING YOUNGER MALES AS RIVALS AND COMPETITORS AND USING THEIR SOCIAL POSITION
AND WEALTH TO SNATCH YOUNGER GIRLS,
THESE SENIOR MALES ARE ALSO PROVOKING SUICIDES AND FEELINGS OF INADEQUACIES IN YOUNGER MALES!

IT IS QUITE FREQUENT THAT THE TWO FRUSTRATED GROUPS VICTIMS OF SUCH UNFAIR AND IMMORAL CHOICES FROM SOME SENIOR MALES IN POWER,
OLDER WOMEN/YOUNGER MALES ARE NOW SEEN MARRYING TOGETHER etc
BECAUSE THEY ARE TRYING TO GET A LIFE IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS CAHOS!

BUT THEN AGAIN, THESE SAME MALE SENIORS AND ABUSERS
WHO BINNED THEIR OLDER WIVES,
POINT OUT A JUDGEMENTAL FINGER AT THEM,
CALLED GOUGAR WOMEN,
AS FOR BEING IMMORAL FOR THEM TO MATE WITH YOUNGER MEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

THESE CONTINUAL PERSECUTIONS ARE IMPLYING THAT IN FACT WHAT THESE SENIOR MALES WANT IS OBSESSIVELY TO FORBID ANY LIFE TO SENIOR WOMEN
TO OSTRACISE THEM AND LEAVE THEM AS THE SCAPE GOATS WHERE TAKEN OUT OF THE ANTIQUE CITY
ON THEIR OWN, OUT OF THE GATES OF OUR SOCIETY 
DEPRIVED OF ANY LEGITIMATE RIGHTS
UNABLE TO BLOSSOM OR TO SATISFY THEIR
LEGITIMATE NEEDS
PUNISHED AND TO BE SACRIFICED!!!
IN OTHER WORDS PUSHED TO SOCIAL SUICIDE!

ALTHOUGH I AM NOT PERSONALLY INTO DATING YOUNGER MEN AND I AM HAPPILY MARRIED TO A SENIOR MAN SHARING MY MORAL VALUES, 
I AM READY TO FIGHT FOR OTHER WOMEN'S RIGHT TO DATE YOUNGER MEN IF THEY PLEASE
OLDER WOMEN HAVE A RIGHT TO PERSONAL HAPPINESS, ROMANTIC AND SEXUAL LIFE, etc, AS MUCH
AS SENIOR MALES!!!!!!
AS LONG AS THEY MARRY OUT OF TRUE LOVE, WHERE IS THE PROBLEM?

IT IS AFTER ALL ONLY BECAUSE SENIOR MALES ARE DESERTING SENIOR FEMALES FOR YOUNGER FEMALES
THAT LEFT ON THEIR OWN IN PAIN AND IN NEED, 
 MANY SENIOR FEMALES ARE ENDING UP FINDING THE MALE ATTENTION AND AFFECTION THEY LEGITIMATELY
NEED, DESERVE AND ARE ENTITLED TO...
WITH YOUNGER MALES

YOUNGER MALES ARE SUFFERING THEMSELVES THE SAME INJUSTICE FROM SENIOR MALES
SO THAT THEY SHARE UNIVERSAL LOVING VALUES OF LIGHT AND JUSTICE
ALONG WITH SENIOR FEMALES

AND THIS IS WHY SUCH COUPLES APPEAR
MORE AND MORE IN OUR SOCIETY!!!!*
*
I WISH TO SALUTE HERE THE EFFORTS OF GOCK WAN IN THE BRITISH FASHION INDUSTRY WHO IS HELPING SO MANY WOMEN INCLUDING SENIOR WOMEN
TO HEAL INSIDE AND TO RECONCILE WITH THEIR RIGHT TO THEIR OWN BEAUTIFUL
AND REAL IMAGE!!!!

UNFORTUNATELY MANY SENIOR WOMEN ARE PARTLY VICTIMS OF THEIR EDUCATION AND CULTURAL BACKGROUND AND ARE AFRAID TO STAND UP FOR THEMSELVES AND MANY YOUNGER WOMEN CHOOSE TO COLLABORATE WITH THE STATUS QUO TO GET A BETTER DEAL FOR THEMSELVES, SOME MANLY WOMEN HAVE EMBRACED THE MALE ATTITUDE TO COMPETE WITH SENIOR MALES AS EMBRACING MALE VALUES WHILST SOME FEMININE WOMEN ARE SCARED OF RETALIATION, HENCE NOTHING CHANGES...

I ALSO BELIEVE THAT THE REFUSAL OF THESE SENIOR MALES IN POWER TO MATURE AND GROW MORALLY RESPONSIBLE AND WISER IS HURTING US ALL SINCE THEY TAKE SIMILAR MORALLY WRONG STANDS IN THEIR ECONOMICAL AND POLITICAL LEADERSHIP  HARMING OUR PLANET
APPLYING THEIR DICTATORIAL SELFISH IMMATURE PHILOSOPHY WITHIN ALL OTHER ISSUES!

OLDER MALES AND FEMALES ARE MEANT TO GROW OLD TOGETHER HAND IN HAND PRECISELY TO GAIN MORE SPIRITUAL WISDOM AND MOVE ON AS LEADERS TO THE SPIRITUAL LEVEL
OF THE HIGHEST GOOD
TEACHING TOGETHER UNIVERSAL LOVE, JUSTICE etc
TO YOUNGER GENERATION
AND IT IS ONLY THROUGH SUCH SPIRITUAL TEACHINGS
AND PRACTICES THAT
OUR PLANET WILL BE SAVED!



INSTEAD OF ACCEPTING THESE NATURAL SPIRITUAL LAWS,
THESE ONE PER CENT SENIOR OLDER MEN IN POWER ARE FALSIFYING AND CORRUPTING OUR PLANET, THROUGH THEIR SELF-CENTERED DICTATURE PROMOTING
AN UNFAIR, ASSYMETRIC GAP BETWEEN GENDERS, AGES, INCOME, SOCIAL BACKGROUNDS ETC ETC


SINCE I CREATED UNIVERSAL GRACE FILMS AND FOUNDATION TO BE
I HAVE SUFFERED MANY BULLYING, INSULTS AND MOCKERIES PROVOKED BY SIMILAR SENIOR MALES IN POWER WHO EVEN TAUGHT YOUNGER PEOPLE TO BULLY ME AND MOCK MY WORK BECAUSE I REFUSED TO ALLOW THEM TO USE MY SMALL STRUCTURE AS A COVER TO KEEP ON PROMOTTING PROSTITUTION AND PORN etc, AS WELL AS THEIR TERRIBLE VALUES! 


I really can't beleive that some senior males have such guts to breach our human rights legislation and discriminate openly against senior females that way!!!So ladies TAKE BACK YOUR POWER before it is too late!THE ONLY THING YOU ARE DUE BECAUSE OF YOUR OLDER AGE, IS RESPECT!

HOWEVER,  I WAS PRECISELY  CONFIDED THIS MISSION BY CHRIST MY SOURCE,  TO COME BACK IN THE ENTERTAINEMENT INDUSTRY OLDER TO MAKE A SPIRITUAL POINT
FRIENDS WHAT YOU SEE AS THE END
WHAT YOU SEE AS PHYSICAL DEATH
IS ONLY THE BEGINNING OF A NEW ETERNAL LIFE
SOME SENIOR MALES PUSH AWAY THE OLD AGE SCAPE GOAT
BECAUSE THEY ARE SCARED OF DEATH
WE WILL ALL GO THROUGH PHYSICAL DEATH
BUT WE ARE ALL OFFERED FREELY SPIRITUAL ETERNAL LIFE!
FOR THIS REASON AND TO FULFIL MY SPIRITUAL MISSION
ALTHOUGH IT HURTS SOME DAYS TO BE SEEN AS THE BLACK SHEEP AND KICKED AROUND FOR MY BEING AUTHENTIC,
I AM STILL HERE AND
I am and will stand my ground forever and stick to ONLY promotting SPIRITUAL AND HUMANITARIAN ISSUES ONLY CHOOSING UNUSUAL PERFORMERS TO DO SO, INCLUDING OUTCASTS and REJECTS FROM THE MAIN STREAM SHOW BUSINESS, ESPECIALLY MYSOGINOUS AND DISCRIMINATORY TO OLDER WOMEN!!!!
(By the way some say there is an obvious curse on HOLLYWOOD because of such unfair immoral practices!!!)
 TO GIVE THEM HOPE
 AND A NEW LIFE AND THE RIGHT TO BLOSSOM THEIR TALENTS AND HAVE FUN TOO!!!!

HOPING TO CREATE NEW JOBS FOR THEM AT UNIVERSAL GRACE FILMS!

All these devious immoral choices from some senior men MOCKING AND MAKING OF SENIOR WOMEN THE SCAPEGOATS OF
 OUR WORLD reveal most clearly their only goal is to EXCLUDE THEM FROM BLOSSOMING AND PARTICIPATING IN EQUAL MANNER IN OUR SOCIETY!  to punish them JUST for getting older in their physical appearance!

In total breach of our HUMAN RIGHTS LEGISLATION!

Quoting Romans 4 in the Bible, as a spiritual foundation of faith for all,
 I highly condemn such ruthless humiliating mockery
attacking older women courageous efforts to keep achieving their dreams of fulfilled life at any age and
until their physical death, because of  pure sexist and ageist discrimination,
 as a gross breach to our human rights legislation!


18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations,
just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.”[d]
19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since
he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead.
20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God,
but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,
21 being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
22 This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.”
23 The words “it was credited to him” were written not for him alone,
24 but also for us, to whom God will credit righteousness—for us who believe in him
who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead.
25 He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.



Women who have such courage to believe against hope and get up to do something with themselves even late in life, instead of becoming bitter burdens for our society, are not to be bullied but admired for their positive faith, efficient input into our society, and spiritual example of leadership !
I understand why so many are becoming bitter burdens in nursing homes, never recovering from the terrible violent blows such senior men inflict upon them continually as they did to me; so to eliminate them from social life or to use them bacKstage only as a docile cover for their crime in their own business!!!!

Blinded by their horrid addiction; these men of POWER, who could make a GOOD DIFFERENCE TO OUR WORLD; CONTINUALLY CHOOSE TO MAKE A HORRID ONE TO DESTROY OUR WORLD INSTEAD

They dont even think that with a world fuller and fuller of seniors mainly females, my stand in helping mature ladies to still enjoy life; do their dreams and remain active, is the only way out of our current crisis!!!!
YOUNGER GENERATION CANNOT BENEFIT MORE FROM THROWING OLDER WOMEN IN THE BIN OR STEALING THEIR JOBS...
HAPPINESS CANNOT FLOURISH FROM AN INJUSTICE AND MAKING OTHERS MISERABLE

AT THE CONTRARY YOUNGER GENERATION NEED THE EXAMPLE OF SPIRITUAL FEMININE VIRTUES TO BALANCE OUR UNIVERSE WITH GOOD MALE VALUES
 
AND WHEN ONLY TAUGHT TO RESPECT TYRANNICAL PRIMITIVE MALE VALUES THEY GET BADLY INFLUENCED TOWARDS GREED, LUST, CRIME, PROSTITUTION etc

IT IS ALSO FOR THEIR PROTECTION AND WELL BEING, I AM FIGHTING,
SINCE A FAIRER SOCIETY TODAY WILL BRING ABOUT A FAIRER SOCIETY TOMORROW WHILST  YOUNGER GENERATION THEMSELVES ARE AGEING TOO!!!


Irrelevant of what human male leaders choose to do, it is certain that Divine Universal Justice will reward these ladies as much as good men of faith who believed in the spiritual promises of source divine, without practicing any gender discrimination!



Source divine UNIVERSAL LOVE does not see women and older women with such disregard, but with a huge tenderness and immense respect!

I also know that some wise older men don't either and I value them as wise men.

Unfortunately, it is often the ones detaining religious or temporary earthly POWER and connections in the business world,  ESPECIALLY in THE SHOW BUSINESS,
 who do despise and ostracize older women....

The Bible, narrates that Sarah was still attractive in her older age

and that Source divine also granted her to get pregnant in her older age, although she had been sterile in her younger age...

demonstrating that to our UNIVERSE, human years are nothing comparing to eternity and that spiritual promises and blessings are relevant to a universal eternal plan and not only a limited earthly one...


What are around a hundred years of physical human life in front of eternity?


Also source creator, is making a statement that the inner beauty in us is deeply connected to eternal spiritual inner youth and beauty reflecting universal love!

So that the fools who like FAUST are ready to sell their souls to evil for a bit more human years worshiping fake empty plastic, to satisfy their deranged sexual lust and morbid appetite, by preying upon young girls or boys like paedophyles vampires.. are not only miserable criminals but laughable!


In His sense of humor, Divine source often asks some of his faithful servants to wait for
a human older age to live their dream on earth to convey HIS SPIRITUAL VISION TO HUMANITY, so to bring hope to all of us,

demonstrating that some trees can bring wonderful fruits out of human season,

as a miracle sign to encourage many on the road of a happy spiritual eternal life,
offered to all, through Christ source, after physical death!

EVEN IF YOU ARE AN ATHEIST
I AM SURE YOU REALISE THAT ONLY THE PURSUIT
OF THE HIGHEST GOOD AND UNIVERSAL VALUES
WILL SAVE OUR PLANET

DEAR FRIENDS
OPEN YOUR HEART TO UNIVERSAL LOVE AND TAKE HOLD OF SPIRITUAL PROMISES THAT YOUR INNER
SPIRITUAL BEING WILL LIVE FOR EVER ... DO NOT LIMIT YOURSELF TO BIOLOGICAL CULT OF YOUTH AND EMPTY PLASTIC...


TAKE TIME TO CONTEMPLATE MEDITATE PRAY OR AT LEAST TO QUESTION QUANTUM PHYSICS NEW PERSPECTIVE etc...
 AND YOU WILL FIND YOUR INNER WAY...TO ETERNAL LIFE...
AND YOUR OWN TRUE SONG...


EACH ONE OF US HAS A TRUE UNIQUE SONG TO SING
A UNIQUE JOY OF LIVING TO BRING AND SHARE WITH EACH OTHER...

AND THOSE WHO TRY TO DESTROY AND KILL IT IN YOU ARE ONLY PAID TO KEEP UP AN UNFAIR STATUS QUO
TO PREVENT YOU FROM FINDING YOUR INNER TRUTH....

BECAUSE REAL TRUTH IS DANGEROUS TO THEM...

REAL TRUTH IS A THREAT TO THEIR TYRANNICAL RULE BECAUSE IT WILL LEAD US ALL TO BREAK THROUGH FREE...

SO 

IF YOU AGREE WITH MY PLEA AND MESSAGE AND WISH

TO LEARN TO RECONNECT WITH YOUR  ETERNAL SPIRITUAL INNER YOUTH AND BEAUTY

 TO MAKE A GOOD DIFFERENCE TO OUR WORLD

It's a woman's world.
   WE TEND TO IGNORE THIS FACT: Women live longer than men — and this has consequences!

As the world's population grows steadily older, it also becomes predominantly more female. In 2008 alone, an estimated 62 million more women than men had lived to age 65 and over.
 

Today, the 2010 U.S. Census bureau splits the American population 49.2% male and 50.8% female. As their share of the population increases with age, women characteristically comprise the majority of the older population in the majority of countries throughout the world.
The ratio changes.
The sex ratio (the number of men per 100 women) also changes over the human life span. Surprisingly, 105 male births occur for every 100 female births. As time passes, the number of males continues to exceed females until the third decade (20-29). From that age on, women increasingly outnumber men.



For every 100 females In the 65-74 age group, we find only 86 males. Their number continues to drops to 72 in the 75-84 age group. For the old-old groups (85 and older) the sex ratio becomes even more pronounced expanding to an astounding 49 men for every 100 women.
But the gap in mortality between men and women that occurs in the older ages continues to narrow. The 2010 Census reports there were approximately twice as many women as men at age 89. This point occurs about 4 years older than it did in 2000, and six years older than it did in 1990, evidence of the narrowing gap .
Still, the higher mortality rates for men, beginning at birth and continuing throughout the life course, result in increasingly fewer men than women tallied within each of the elderly sub-populations.
The implications are self evident...

Who is most at risk for having their rights, as elderly persons, violated?
Elderly women are at the greatest risk for having their rights violated. In general, women are historically more vulnerable toward violence due to their traditionally subordinate position in most cultures. Coupled with the negative image many cultures hold of elderly people, being a woman can make one particularly susceptible to violence and abuse. Considering that 55 percent of older persons are women and that, in the oldest old category 65 percent are women, special consideration must be given to the effect of sex on the likelihood of rights violation and abuse.

Introduction
Over the past several decades a massive change has taken place in a key demographic area of the planet’s human population: age. Our current body of scientific knowledge tells us that the history of humankind has always been marked by high birth rates that are accompanied by correspondingly high death rates. Historically, the majority of people on the planet at one time have been aged somewhere in the middle of the then-current age range or have tended to be younger than the median age. However, due to the trend of lower birth rates and lower death rates, according to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, one out of every ten people on the planet is now 60 years of age or older. If the current trend of lowering birth rates and lowering death rates continues, by the year 2050 one out of five people will be aged 60 years or older and by 2150, one out of every three people will be aged 60 years or older. Additionally, the oldest old are the most rapidly expanding segment of the elderly population. Currently, the oldest old make up 11 percent of the 60+ age group and will grow to 19 percent by 2050.
Many governments have support systems in place for elderly persons such as social security and free or discounted medical care, for example. However, most of these systems were built on the premise that there will always be significantly fewer older persons than younger or middle-aged individuals living at one time. Because of declining death rates, therefore, these systems are beginning to feel a strain that will only increase over time. Additionally, the older-person support ratio is falling in both more and less developed regions, which could further lessen the ability of societies and governments to care for their aging populations.
These demographic trends create unique challenges for all people, particularly for the governments of nation-states around the globe. Elderly individuals are often subject to discrimination and abuse because they are perceived as easily taken advantage of. There is also a prevalent belief among many that elderly persons are worthless in today’s fast-paced, globalized and increasingly industrialized world. Obviously, with the number of elderly people on earth at any one time rising rapidly, there is an increased urgency to address the rights and roles of elderly persons in our world.

Rights at Stake
The rights of aged persons can be broken down into three main categories: protection, participation and image. Protection refers to securing the physical, psychological and emotional safety of elderly persons with regard to their unique vulnerability to abuse and ill treatment. Participation refers to the need to establish a greater and more active role for older persons in society. Image refers to the need to define a more positive, less degrading and discriminatory idea of who elderly persons are and what they are capable of doing. Regional intergovernmental organizations in particular have begun to deal with these categories of rights in some detail in their recommendations and treaties.
Special consideration for the rights of the elderly has been granted relatively recently in recommendations and treaties between international instruments, like the Council of Europe. These more detailed recommendations and agreements on the rights of the elderly, however, are all based upon the fundamental premises established in documents like the Charter of the United Nations and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In Article 25, paragraph 1, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights it is established that:

“Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing, and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.” [italics added]
Elderly persons’ right to security is particularly vulnerable to violation. For example, a component of the right to security is the right to healthcare if one, due to old age, is unable to afford or pursue healthcare on one’s own. Although many countries currently have universal healthcare systems, these systems are beginning to feel the strain of an increasingly aged population, and there is some question about how these systems will be maintained in the future. In other countries, like the United States, where there are only federally and state-subsidized healthcare programs for those who are indigent, disabled or elderly, rising healthcare costs are threatening the survival of these systems. These rights are related to the right to an adequate standard of living, which is often affected in the case of the elderly, due to lack of an adequate support system for them.
Elderly individuals also have the right to non-discrimination. Elderly people should not be thought of as useless to society simply because some of them may need more care than the average person. These stereotypes of the elderly can lead to degrading treatment, inequality and, sometimes, abuse.
Similarly, elderly persons’ right to participation is sometimes threatened due to prevailing negative images societies hold of the aged. The aged are often not given the same opportunities as others to be productive members of society. Governments are obliged to aid in creating a more positive image of the abilities and strengths of older populations as well as solid opportunities for elderly people to participate in the ongoing creation of their societies.
The elderly’s right to be free from torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment is also often threatened. People sometimes take advantage of the vulnerability of elderly persons. People in old age, particularly older women, are often victims of neglect and physical and psychological abuse. Additionally, elderly refugees during humanitarian crises often fall victim to the torture and abuse that is sometimes inflicted upon civilian populations.
Who is most at risk for having their rights, as elderly persons, violated?
Elderly women are at the greatest risk for having their rights violated. In general, women are historically more vulnerable toward violence due to their traditionally subordinate position in most cultures. Coupled with the negative image many cultures hold of elderly people, being a woman can make one particularly susceptible to violence and abuse. Considering that 55 percent of older persons are women and that, in the oldest old category 65 percent are women, special consideration must be given to the effect of sex on the likelihood of rights violation and abuse.





International and Regional Instruments for Protection and Promotion
International legal instruments take the form of a treaty (also called agreement, convention, or protocol) that binds the contracting states to the negotiated terms. When negotiations are completed, the text of a treaty is established as authentic and definitive and is "signed" by the representatives of states. A state can agree to be bound to a treaty in various ways. The most common are ratification or accession. A new treaty is ratified by those states that have negotiated the instrument. A state that has not participated in the negotiations may, at a later stage, accede to the treaty. The treaty enters into force, or becomes valid, when a pre-determined number of states have ratified or acceded to the treaty.
When a state ratifies or accedes to a treaty, that state may make reservations to one or more articles of the treaty, unless reservations are prohibited by the treaty. Reservations may normally be withdrawn at any time. In some countries, international treaties take precedence over national law; in others a specific law may be required to give a ratified international treaty the force of a national law. Practically all states that have ratified or acceded to an international treaty must issue decrees, change existing laws, or introduce new legislation in order for the treaty to be fully effective on the national territory.
The binding treaties can be used to force governments to respect the treaty provisions that are relevant for the human rights of the elderly. The non-binding instruments, such as declarations and resolutions, can be used in relevant situations to embarrass governments by negative public exposure; governments who care about their international image may consequently adapt their policies.
The following are the international treaties, declarations and commitments that determine standards for the protection of the rights of elderly persons:


UNITED NATIONS
Charter of the United Nations (1945) (article 55)
Article 55 of the Charter pledges member states of the United Nations to promote higher standards of living for all people, social and economic progress, international cooperation on social issues including health and education and universal respect for human rights regardless of individual background or characteristics.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) (article 3, 22, 25, 27)
The Universal Declaration asserts that everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person. Furthermore, everyone is entitled to social security and the realization of any economic, social and cultural rights that are essential to that individual’s dignity and personality development. Everyone should have the opportunity to participate in cultural activities in their community and share in the benefits of the arts and sciences. Finally, everyone is entitled to a standard of living adequate for one’s health and well-being including food, clothing, housing and medical care as well as any needed social services provided by the governments of nation-states. Most important to elderly persons, in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood or old age, one has the right to security due to circumstances beyond one’s control.

Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees (1951) (article 24)
This convention establishes that states shall treat refugees lawfully abiding in their territory with the same respect for rights as other nationals including providing for a refugee’s social security in the event of sickness, disability or old age. As elderly refugees can face very specific challenges from other refugees, this article is particularly applicable to them and their legal rights.

International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1966) (article 9, 11, 12)
This treaty reiterates the right of everyone to social security. Additionally, all people are entitled to an adequate standard of living, including food, clothing and housing. Going further than the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant also guarantees everyone the right to continuous improvement of living conditions. This can be interpreted to mean that governments should be continuously work toward improving the living conditions of all people, including those under the care of the state, for example, some aged persons.


Declaration on the Rights of Disabled Persons (1975) (article 5, 9, 10, 12)
This declaration defines the status of disabled persons. As some elderly persons often suffer from various types of disabilities, the rules established in this declaration are also applicable to them. Disabled people are entitled to all measures designed to assist them in becoming as self-reliant as possible. If a disabled person must stay in an institution for assistance, that individual is entitled to living conditions that come as close as possible to those of other people of the same age. Disabled persons are protected from exploitation and abuse. Organizations of disabled persons are to play a useful consulting role in any issue regarding the rights of the disabled.

ILO Recommendation No. 162 concerning Older Workers (1980) (section II, paragraph 5(g))
This recommendation states that older workers must enjoy equality of opportunity and treatment with other workers without age discrimination, including access to housing, social services and health institutions, particularly when this access is related to occupational activity or employment.

Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women (1993)
This document’s focus is on violence against women as both a violation of their rights and as an obstacle to achieving equality. It outlines the types of violence often committed against women and brings special attention to groups of women that are particularly vulnerable, including elderly women.

AFRICAN UNION (FORMERLY ORGANIZATION OF AFRICAN UNITY, OAU)
African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights (1981) (article 18)
The first charter of the African Union dealing with human rights recognizes the basic, specific right of aged and/or disabled persons to special measures of protection and security according to their needs, both physical and moral.



COUNCIL OF EUROPE
European Social Charter (1961) (article 11, 12, 13, 14)
This charter indirectly clarifies rights that are applicable to the situations of many elderly people: the need for a system of social security and medical care. European states are obligated under this charter to eradicate, as far as science will currently allow, the sources and conditions of ill-health as well as prevent the spread of disease. They are also committed to developing systems of social security for those who lack the resources to provide for their own security. Those individuals are also entitled to receiving appropriate medical care for when their condition necessitates it.

Recommendation R(87)22 on the screening and surveillance of elderly persons (1987)
Screening and surveillance of elderly persons should be conducted in order to prolong life of a high quality, “improve subjective well-being,” enhance the ability of elderly persons to function socially and prevent and lessen the impact of diseases. Hence, this recommendation suggests that member states should develop facilities for screening and surveillance of the elderly and motivate the elderly to attend these screenings. Additionally, all health staff involved with these facilities should receive training in geriatric medicine and gerontology. Finally, the collection of relevant data is encouraged so that these facilities will become more effective in the future.

Recommendation R(94)9 Social Cohesion and Quality of Life (1994) (including appendix)
This recommendation was developed due to concern over the increasing numbers of elderly persons in Europe and their tendency toward social exclusion, particularly the exclusion of elderly women, due to the fact that they tend to outlive men by several years. This recommendation is extremely short. However, the Appendix provides guiding principles for member states to follow when developing policies concerning the welfare of elderly people. The recommendation recognizes that the majority of elderly people actually live their lives autonomously and are, “in principle not more dependent than the population as a whole.” It also recognizes the value of elderly people to the general population, particularly younger generations. It recognizes the right of elderly persons to continue to live a high quality of life and to live securely. The elderly should also be enabled to live as autonomously as possible and continue to make their own choices. Elderly individuals should be able to participate fully in their society and have the resources to enable them to do that. Governments should work to prevent the social exclusion of the elderly. Information on issues pertinent to the elderly should be readily available to them as well as other individuals in their networks of security.

Recommendation 1254 on the medical and welfare rights of the elderly: ethics and policies (1994)
This recommendation was composed due to the concern that traditional rules and systems of social welfare are at risk of being dismantled because of the financial considerations of prominent lobbies in governments: scientific, medical and economic. Because of the aging of much of Europe’s population, this is of particular concern. For central and eastern European countries, it is recommended that short-term measures are taken to secure the welfare of elderly persons due to the often unstable political and economic situations in many states of the region. The recommendation suggests that states in this region of Europe guarantee minimum incomes that will provide for the security of the elderly population. Additionally, eastern European governments are advised to prevent the deterioration of the public health system and provide for affordable medical care for the aged, provide for local services for the elderly and hone the effectiveness of existing social programs for this population. As to Western Europe, the recommendation suggests member states develop an employment and labor policy to carve out a new nook in society for the participation of the elderly, draw up a solid retirement and pensions policy, control public healthcare costs and increase local services for the elderly.

Additional Protocol to the European Social Charter (1998) (part II, article 4)
Every elderly person is entitled to social protection. Elderly persons should be enabled to remain full participants and contributors to society for as long as possible. They should have ready access to services and resources to make this possible. Elderly persons should retain the right to live freely and retain their independence for as long as they desire or are capable of doing. They should also have access to suitable housing for their needs as well as access to health care. Those aged persons who are institutionalized should be guaranteed any necessary support, but should also have access to privacy and have the right to contribute to decision-making in the institutions in which they are staying.

Recommendation 1428 on the future of senior citizens: protection, participation and promotion (1999)
This recommendation was developed after the United Nations declared 1999 the “International Year of Older Persons.” It also recognizes the development of the Group of Specialists on Optimising the Living Conditions of Elderly Dependent People within the Council of Europe. A couple of heretofore unmentioned concerns about the elderly include those older persons living in rural areas and the extreme disparities between their living conditions. The recommendation also encourages research to be done on the elderly at the national level so that programs can be tailored to the unique challenges of older persons in certain geographical locations. Additionally, it encourages states and local governments to develop new measures for the protection, increased societal participation and creation of a more positive image for the elderly.

EUROPEAN UNION
Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union (2000) (article 25, 34, 35)
This recent charter recognizes the right of the elderly to live in an independent and respectable manner and be active participants in social and cultural life of member states. In the event of old age, individuals are also secured the right to social security benefits as well as social services. Additionally, those who lack sufficient resources are entitled to decent housing. Everyone is entitled to preventative healthcare and medical treatment as provided for by national law.


 


LEAGUE OF ARAB STATES
Arab Charter on Human Rights (1994) (article 30, 38)
Every citizen of states in the League has the right to comprehensive social security. Although detail is lacking on rules of implementation for member states, the charter recognizes that member states will also provide care for the aged.

The Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam (1990) (article 17, 18)
This declaration deals with the basic concerns of many elderly persons and their advocates: security and the means of providing for their basic needs. Everyone has the right to health and medical care within the capability of each state. Everyone has the right to live in security. All are entitled to a means of making a living that will enable each person to provide for food, clothing, medical care and any other basic need.



ORGANIZATION OF AMERICAN STATES (OAS)
American Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man (1948) (article 11, 16)
This declaration states that all people have the right to be able to maintain their standard of health within the resources of the community or state. Additionally, in the event of old age, one is entitled to social security in order to maintain an adequate standard of living.

American Convention on Human Rights (1969) (article 5, 6)
This convention establishes that everyone has the right to humane treatment, which is important, as the elderly are often victims of neglect and abuse.

Additional Protocol to the American Convention on Human Rights in the Area of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1988) (article 9, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18)
Similar to the American Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Man, the this protocol establishes that, in the event of old age, one is entitled to social security in order to maintain an adequate standard of living. Additionally, if this individual is to die, and has dependents, the dependents will receive social security benefits at the time of the individual’s death. Article 17 specifically states that special protection is an entitlement of persons of old age. Elderly persons who cannot provide themselves have the right to acceptable facilities, food and medical care. Also, elderly persons actually have the right, according to this document, to participate in work programs that allow individuals to participate in productive work consistent with their needs and wants. Member states are, furthermore, obligated to aid in the establishment of social organizations created in order to improve the lives of elderly persons.

Inter-American Convention on the Prevention, Punishment and Eradication of Violence Against Women (1994)
This convention declares that all women have the right to be free from violence and discrimination in all of its forms, which includes elderly women, who are particularly susceptible to violence.

National Assistance, Protection and Service Agencies
Much is currently being done on an international level to prepare for the ensuing crisis of our world’s aging population. It is widely recognized that the elderly are often victims of discrimination and abuse and that their unique needs are often not sufficiently met by their governments and communities. Additionally, societies have still not clearly established a new, more active role for our world’s elderly citizens in creating culture and community, nor have many programs been developed to enable the elderly to more actively participate in society.
In fact, most of what has been accomplished in protecting the rights of the elderly has been done, thus far, in an intergovernmental international or regional setting. Many governments of nation-states, unfortunately, are experiencing serious crises in implementing or maintaining protection programs for their elderly citizenry. For example, currently, in the United States, the social security system is at risk of being overhauled and privatized, or, some fear, eventually dismantled. Additionally, Medicare, a healthcare system for people ages 65 and older, sometimes does not sufficiently cover the healthcare costs of those elderly people who are indigent, nor does it cover the cost of prescription medications. Furthermore, the cost of these medications is rapidly rising. Many elderly citizens, unable to afford their medications, will skip doses. Some of these medications are necessary to the survival of these individuals.
Even in countries that have well-established universal healthcare systems, like Canada and most European countries, rising healthcare costs have caused governments to make cutbacks in services offered to their citizens. Also, these governments have an interest in keeping the prices of prescription drugs down primarily because they cover the majority of the cost of these drugs. Therefore, new medicines that could be beneficial to citizens often are delayed in their entrance into the market because of negotiations over costs between drug companies and governments. Furthermore, the wait for nonessential surgeries and medical procedures can be years in some countries with universal healthcare.
Regardless of these problems, there are many national nongovernmental organizations that perform advocacy and policy-related work for elderly individuals. In 1989 the World Medical Association adopted the Declaration of Hong Kong on the Abuse of the Elderly. This declaration assesses the abuse of the elderly against their frequent background of dependency on others for assistance and their and tendency toward pathological problems, motor disturbances, psychic and orientation disorders. The World Medical Association, therefore, establishes that the elderly have the same rights to care and welfare as all other human beings. Physicians have a responsibility to prevent the abuse of their elderly patients. They also are obliged to report suspected cases of physical and psychological abuse to the proper local authorities. Additionally, in order to ensure the protection of the elderly, they should be able to freely exercise their right to choose their own physician.
