Señor Presidente,

Excelencias:

Hoy vengo a dar la voz de alarma: el mundo tiene que salir de su letargo.

Estamos al borde de un abismo, y vamos en la dirección equivocada.

Nuestro mundo nunca ha estado más amenazado

ni más dividido.

Nos encontramos ante la mayor avalancha de crisis de toda nuestra vida.

La pandemia de COVID-19 ha acentuado desigualdades flagrantes.

La crisis climática está azotando el planeta.

La paz se ha visto frustrada a raíz de los disturbios, desde el Afganistán hasta Etiopía, pasando por el Yemen.
