Potomac, Maryland-outside of Washington, D.C.
29 Days Until the "Global Marches for Justice" in Washington, D.C., around the USA and the World on 17 January 2011
Good morning from the Pike Peaks Region of Colorado. The winds are briskly howling through downtown Colorado Springs. Through the deserted streets are American flags flowing and Christmas lights twinkling like stars. Tonight a total lunar eclipse of the moon is expected, although it may be cloaked by the flowing clouds.
This morning I am writing to request that all people choosing wage peace and justice as part of the Birth of the Justice Movement, consider taking a stand--immediately and unequivocally--for GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE NOW! and to END THE GLOBAL PATRIARCHY NOW! I invite you to choose to "DECLARE THE PATRIARCHY ENDED AND OVER, NOW!"
PROPOSED ACTION PRIORITIES FOR GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE NOW!
GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE NOW! IN HEALTH & EDUCATION SERVICES:
The patriarchy of the past created barriers to access, including: transportation to services/or financial resources where necessary; flexible hours of operation with access to multiple integrated services; confidentiality and privacy; appropriate facilities (e.g., bathroom facilities for girls; separate entrances or waiting areas for women and girls when needed); and childcare services.
GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE NOW! TAKING A STAND FOR CO-GENDER GOVERNANCE:
Co-gender governance is proposed as a mandate to ensure that women and girls are required by law to be equally represented in the planning, design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of all institution . Women and girls need to participate in the design, management, monitoring and evaluation of all programs
ZERO TOLERANCE FOR GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE (GBV); VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN & GIRLS, VIOLENCE AGAINST CHILDREN, NOW!:
In the USA and around the World, women and girls experience substantial morbidity and mortality as a result of physical and sexual violence. GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE means that intimate partner physical and sexual violence, sexual assault or rape, female genital cutting/mutilation, sexual violence against minors, must end NOW!
GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE FOR ALL GIRLS NOW!
Adolescent and pre-adolescent girls are proposed to be empowered to strengthen their social networks, educational opportunities, and economic assets.
MEN AND BOYS CO-LEAD TRANSFORMATION TO GENDER EQUALITY NOW!:
Men and boys are proposed as co-partner and co-leaders in the immediate and urgent transformation to gender equality NOW!. The Era of Justice is proposes that that all immediate and urgent action by all male religious, political, community leaders, male role models (sports or popular culture figures) to publicly speak out in support of gender equality and women and girls well-being. Men and boys are invited to be co-equal partners in taking action as unreasonable agents of transformation for GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE NOW!
DEMAND GLOBAL, NATIONAL, AND LOCALS LAWS TO ESTABLISH GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE, NOW!:
Immediate and urgent development and enforcement of new and existing laws and policies to establish gender equality and empowerment of women and girls is proposed. Top priorities include promulgation of laws against discrimination in the workforce, child marriage, gender-based violence, and trafficking in persons; and for the protection of inheritance and property rights.
TAKE ACTION: END GLOBAL PATRIARCHY NOW!
My request is that people choose to END GLOBAL PATRIARCHY NOW!, thus creating a 21st "Era of Justice" with social systems in which the male is no longer the primary authority figure nor is the male central to social organization, co-gender representation is established by law, NOW!
My request is that people choose to END GLOBAL PATRIARCHY NOW!, thus creating 21st "Era of Justice" with family systems where husbands/fathers garner male rule and privilege and no hold authority over women, children, and property.
My request is that women choose to END GLOBAL PATRIARCHY NOW!, thus creating the 21st "Era of Justice" where female subordination is gone, NOW!.
My is request is that women and men establish co-gender governance as a central principle of the Justice Movement and all social, legal, political, and economic organizations in all Nations of the World on every continent, including in the USA.
END GLOBAL PATRIARCHY NOW! End the injustices of the patriarchy, End the unjust social systems of the past that oppress women, End the social mechanisms to ensure the exertion of dominance over women! NOW! Phew, that is a relief. Now the Era of Justice can launch with the full power, capacities, and Ideas of both women & men!
PROPOSED NEXT STEPS
The immediate and urgent establishment of a "GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE" ACTION NETWORK is proposed to rapidly accelerate progress towards establishing gender equality justice and the rapid realization of women's and girls rights! My request is that you consider exploring the possibility of living from the future to the present, as a powerful means of take UNREASONALBLE, BOLD, URGENT, ACTION to join the Birthing of the Justice Movement with Global Marches for Justice on Monday, 17 January 2011.
EXPERIMENT WITH LIVING FROM THE FUTURE TO THE PRESENT
Most human beings are living by putting the "past into the future", thus "living into the past." This leads to a "almost probable certain future" like what we have now. It will be more of the same headlines that we read today.
Experiment with choosing (in as many moments as possible) to live from the "future to the present", Be in the future with GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE has been achieved. Be in the future where the PATRIARCHY IS ENDED. From those place, experiment with the possibility of coming from that possible future reality to the the present moment. Experiment with being UNREASONABLE WAGING GENDER EQUALITY JUSTICE by creating possibilities for the future as we want it to be and that we see as possible, NOW!.
From this place consider ways in which each of us can take committed, unreasonable action for justice and then see how we can create the possibility of new kinds of headlines. We can explore the possibility of seeing more headlines like what we want to see in the World.
TODAY'S "INJUSTICE" HEADLINES: "ALMOST PROBABLE CERTAIN FUTURE"
(daily from the city where I am)
•The Gazette, Twin Peaks, Colorado, 20 Dec 2010: Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican Leader of U.S. Senate will oppose START treaty pact to reduce nuclear weapons
•The Gazette, Twin Peaks, Colorado, 20 Dec 2010: Joshi also Seeks Medicaid Law Repeal

PERMANENTLY ON THIS LIST:
•Washington Post, 18Dec 2010: House approves defense bill with lower pay raise for military
This headline could turn a reasonable person into an unreasonable person waging justice, NOW! Our military, their families, and veterans are bravest and boldest of those waging justice. They stand for justice to the point that they are willing to sacrifice their life and the wholeness of a normal family life. This headline could turn a reasonable person into an unreasonable person waging justice when one realizes that the gap between the richest and poorest Americans now is a record of 14.5 to 1 -- double the previous high gap in 1968 and the U.S. Congress is poised to approve a $79 billion tax cut for richest of Americans. Are you feeling UNREASONABLE yet?
POSSIBLE FUTURE HEADLINES

In peace and solidarity for bold action now,
Paul S. Zeitz
