About the Author

As a former B'way actor and US Airforce B-17 bomber pilot in WWII, with a brother killed during the invasion of Salerno, Italy, Garry Davis decided that the individual had a direct part to play in establishing world peace, that exclusive nationality was nothing more than a collective suicide pact in the mid-twentieth century with the advent of the so-called nuclear age. On May 25, 1948, therefore, he renounced his US nationality at the Embassy in Paris publicly declaring himself a "citizen of the world." He was exercising his inalienable right of political choice, he claimed, to address his - and our - problems which had become global such as war itself. With no national documents however, he was considered stateless by France and ordered to leave by September 12th or be detained in jail.
Unable to enter another country, the morning of Sept. 11th, 1948 he "entered" the new "international territory" ceded to the United Nations by the French government and claimed "global political asylum" from the UN.
The general public endorsed the idea of world citizenship at once, writing to him to "join." And so the movement was born. . On Nov. 22, 1948, the World Citizens led by Davis interrupted a session of the GA "in the name of the people not represented here..." Claiming that the UN, composed only of states as the former League of Nations, "divided us and led us to the abyss of total war..." they called for "one government for one world..." If the UN could not transform itself, then we, the people of the world, would do so "For we can be served by nothing less."
On Dec. 10, 1948, the General Assembly proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as a "Common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations." Art. 21(3) provided: "The will of the people shall be the basis for the authority of government."
On Jan. 1, 1949, Davis called upon the general public to write him if they wanted to be registered as World Citizens. And so the International Registry of World Citizens was born. Over 750,000 from over 115 countries registered in the next 14 months.
On 9/4/53, Davis declared the World Government of World Citizens from the city hall of Ellsworth, Maine, USA. In Jan., 1954, its administrative office, the World Service Authority, was opened in New York City,. The WSA is presently a Washington, D.C. corporation registering World Citizens and issuing global documents based on articles in the UDHR. see www.worldservice.org.
