The United Nations is an international organization formed by countries, on a voluntary basis, to cooperate with each other and promote peace, as well as world development.
The United Nations Charter, well known among many countries, expresses the ideals and goals of the nations that have organized themselves to build a better future and is the organization’s main document. We can cite some passages such as:
“We, the peoples of the United Nations, resolved to preserve the coming generations from the scourge of war, which, on two occasions in our lives, brought unspeakable suffering to humanity, and reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, dignity human rights, equal rights for men and women, as well as for nations large and small, and to establish conditions under which justice and respect for obligations under treaties and other sources of international law be maintained, and promote social progress and better living conditions within a broader freedom.”
October 24 marks the anniversary of the Charter’s entry into force in 1945. The UN General Assembly in 1971 recommended to the participating States that the day be a public holiday.
For us of the Irmãos Nogueira Institute, it is essential to remember this important date for the promotion of world peace, since Brazil has been one of the countries participating in the organization since 1947, and in view of the detriment that violence has provided us for years on end. our society. Here is our remembrance, homage and wish that we have better days.
