Voices through the years
"The victory of freedom over totalitarianism has put the onus on the forces of
freedom not to pick and choose, but to universally and unquestionably and
immediately speak out when democracy and human rights are being violated.
That, I believe, is the moral imperative of the new world order.
"Democratic nations - and here Parliamentarians for Global Action can play
a role - need to forge a consensus in support of the most powerful idea in the
world today: the right of people to freely choose their government.
"I believe what is at stake here is not just international morality but also
international peace and stability. There's a simple fact, although it's much
overlooked: Democracies do not start wars with democracies. Thus, democracy
is the only guarantor of international peace and stability."
- Ms. Benazir Bhutto, MP, of Pakistan, speaking at PGA's International Parliamentary Forum in 1991.
