"… a wall has arisen between humanist aspirations
and the realities of today’s world.
The time has come to tear down that wall.
To do this, all humanists of the world must unite."

When humanists observe and participate in social, political and economic processes around the world, we cannot but reflect about the relevance to this moment of history of the Statement of the Humanist Movement written by Silo in 1993[^1] . From its reading we can understand to what degree the path of history has confirmed the tendencies that this document explained and to what degree—today more than ever—the union of all humanists of the world has become necessary so that the deepest human aspirations may be turned into reality.
In this moment of history, and as a political party inspired by this current of Universalist Humanism, we find it necessary to analyse the present situation in order to develop proposals for action in the present global context.
