Seville (Agenzia Fides) - On October 17 in Andalucía, as in the rest of Spain and the world people and organizations will mobilize to collect and launch proposals for Human Rights, in order to have a sustainable world, without poverty or inequality. Poverty continues to become increasingly chronic, and it is for this that institutions are in urgent need to change the present system that generates wealth for 1% and a generalized impoverishment for the rest of the population. According to the Andalucian organizations it is a system that foments war for the control of geostrategic resources, the destruction of nature and social inequalities. To cope with this phenomenon and give precedence to human rights, it is necessary to put into practice international agreements, such as the recent Objectives for Sustainable Development, the Protocols of Human Rights, the UN Charter, the Conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) or the Kyoto Protocol.
