" We are for Truth, no matter who tells it. We are for Justice, no matter who it is for or against. We are Humans, first and foremost. We are for whomever and whatever benefits Humanity as a whole!"
We have respectfully borrowed and adapted these words from Malcolm X, who, in his final days, realized that only through an Inclusive Peaceful International Human effort, would we be be able to shed our Shared Human struggles.
We, the makers of LOCAL TRADE ZONE, are compassionate Humans, with an extensive set of skills and experiences - spanning four decades.
We have a strong sense of social moral imperative, and perhaps, enough "Sublime Madness", to pursue our work with resilient enthusiasm.
We are committed to peacefully facilitating and participating in a sweeping World-wide social and economic transformation - from broken global corporate capitalism to a sustainable Human-centric system of Universal Social Justice and Local Democracy.
We believe that 5% can help the 99% beat the 1%
We sincerely share in a Human vision. We advocate only compassionate, non-violent social reform, through peaceful assembly and innovative legal global Human collaboration.
We believe, as do many other like-hearted spirits, that by engaging the focused efforts of just 5% of our most creative, most committed, and most industrious people, Earth-wide, we can build a powerful global movement - with enough structure and momentum to yield a lasting positive change for all!
We welcome ALL to participate!
Working together is our only hope for rebuilding a global community where Social Justice and Local Democracy are enjoyed by all Humans around our precious and only Earth!

FUND THIS PROJECT
Global capitalism, the "inspiration" for our work, is a wreckless unsustainable corrupt system which exploits the many at the expense of our very life support systems - for the sole benefit of a cruel and selfish minority.
This must stop.
We are Human-centric!
LOCAL TRADE ZONE is a Human-centric system which values and respects the core needs of each and every Human on our Earth.
It is organized into the following Primary Human Zones:
Humans know what Humans need!
We address our Zones with a Human mandate. We define and explore the significance of each Zone - as it applies to serving Humankind.
We identify key elements and discuss historic, ongoing, and emerging issues.
We champion Champions!
We support and celebrate Human Champions of each Zone - affording them the prominence and resources to present their offerings - for further development, to network, and to launch focused Community Actions.
We "fight" inhumanity with Daylight!
We also reveal traditional and contemporary Antagonists of each Zone. We deconstruct their self-serving Mythologies. We bear witness and chronicle their inhuman Tactics.
This project is designed and managed by Humans, to serve Humans!
LOCAL TRADE ZONE is a dynamic living project - its success and positive impact on the Humans it serves World-wide, are intimately related - by design!
Recognizing individual and collective mortality is essential to any system oriented to fowarding Humanity. We must respect and protect each and every Human Vessel on Earth.

Through appreciation of our Essential Human Needs, we have developed a capacity to create structures protecting our fulfilment of those needs. But this has been subverted.
Universal Justice, while valued in concept, does not exist in reality. A greedy minority has co-opted the judicial system, replacing Justice with global corporate stability. MORE →
We have made incredible breakthroughs in areas of Human Health, but there is a hording minority which exercises a self-appointed right to control who lives and who dies. MORE →
