SOLEMNE LLAMAMIENTO AL SECRETARIO GENERAL DE LAS NACIONES UNIDAS, BAN KI-MOON

Nosotros, los abajo firmantes, urgimos encarecidamente a las Naciones Unidas, las autoridades internacionales, los Jefes de Estado y de Gobierno, y la Presidente de Brasil, Dilma Rousseff, declarar al Sr. Stephan Schmidheiny “persona non grata” en la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas Río + 20 sobre el Desarrollo Sustentable que tendrá lugar del 20 al 22 de Junio de 2012 en Río de Janeiro, Brasil. Como criminal condenado por causar un desastre ambiental, al Sr. Schmidheiny se le debería prohibir que participe en esta importante reunión, concebida para planificar y proteger el futuro de nuestro Planeta Tierra.

El Sr. Schmidheiny no sólo es el fundador y presidente honorario del Consejo Empresarial Mundial para el Desarrollo Sustentable (WBCSD), sino también, el ex propietario de Eternit, una empresa de asbesto-cemento, y simultáneamente, el “filántropo” fundador de la Fundación AVINA que apoya acciones sociales y ambientales en América Latina. El 13 de febrero de 2012 en Turín, Italia, el Sr. Schmidheiny fue condenado a 16 años de prisión por causar “desastre ambiental intencional y permanente” y “negligencia intencional en la implementación de regulaciones de salud y seguridad (medidas preventivas)”, las que habrían protegido a su empleados y la población en general de los desde hace largo tiempo reconocidos riesgos mortales de la exposición al amianto/asbesto. El amianto/asbesto es un mineral cancerígeno que según la Organización Mundial de la Salud causa la muerte de más de 107.000 personas al año. Sobre la base del veredicto criminal y la sentencia penal dictada en Italia y el daño ambiental del cual se ha demostrado su responsabilidad, por la presente urgimos a las Naciones Unidas y la Presidente de Brasil, Dilma Rousseff, declarar al Sr. Stephan Schmidheiny “persona non grata” y prohibirle que participe en Río + 20.

ADAO Joins Global Community in Urging United Nations to Declare Stephan Schmidheiny “Persona Non Grata” at UN Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development

Stephan Schmidheiny, former asbestos owner-executive recently convicted of “causing a continuing disaster in health and environment” and “willfully neglecting safety regulations in the workplace,” has plans to speak at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, otherwise known as Rio+20. He has been sentenced to 16 years in prison and ordered to pay millions of Euros in damages as compensation for the 2,000+ lives he and his Eternit asbestos-cement company took as a result of their negligence and pollution. As a convicted criminal, the United Nations should not allow him to address the conference on Sustainable Development.

The collaboration of so many passionate individuals at ADAO’s recent conference sparked a righteous global collaborative “Persona Non Grata” campaign against the notorious asbestos executive and convicted criminal, Stephan Schmidheiny.  Led by public health advocate Fernanda Giannasi, the campaign urges everyone to petition the United Nations to deem Schmidheiny “persona non grata” (an unwelcome guest) at June 20-22’s Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Appearances can be deceiving.  As the Founder and Honorary Chairman of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development,” Schmidheiny promotes himself as a “philanthropist” that supports key issues such as “human dignity, sustainable development, liberty, democracy, equity, education, leadership, association, social responsibility, and eco-efficiency.”

This is the same Stephan Schmidheiny that was found guilty on February 13, 2012 in Turin, Italy and sentenced to 16 years in prison for “willful and permanent environmental disaster” and “willful negligence in implementing health and safety regulations” that would have protected his workers and the community from the well-known dangers of asbestos exposure.

The World Health Organization states that 107,000 workers die each year from asbestos-related diseases, and the men who profit from this business of death must face the consequences for their actions. Schmidheiny is not a philanthropist, he is a murderer.

Convicted criminal Stephan Schmidheiny should not be welcome at a UN conference. Join the global campaign and let’s make him famous for the Eternit asbestos executive he really is. Please sign the petition and share it through the social media outlets (facebook, twitter, google +). You can even sign the petition with your facebook. Please help us spread the message. Together, change is possible.
