The International Institute of Political Murder in cooperation with Bahrain Watch and a host of organisations are holding the “General Assembly” which will bring 60 delegates from around the world to Berlin, from 3 to 5 November 2017, to challenge the newly elected Bundestag – as representatives of all actors, of whatever kind, who are affected by German policy but have no political voice in the federal parliament. The first world parliament in human history, accompanied by a group of international political observers, will culminate in the passage of the “Charter for the 21st Century” and in the “Storming of the Reichstag” on 7 November, exactly 100 years after the “Storming of the Winter Palace”.
War victims, labour migrants, economic and climate refugees, the victims of the dawning ecocide, children, the unborn and the victims of colonial history – they all have no say under the Reichstag dome. But what would happen if all those whose lives are influenced by the German Bundestag were to congregate and claim their rights? “General Assembly” and the “Storming of the Reichstag” will provide a public forum for their concerns and offer their non-simultaneity a moment of simultaneity. A local parliament will be replaced by a global parliament. For the first time, the global Third Estate will claim its rights: one world, one parliament!
