The Humanist International is a consortium of Humanist political parties, founded in Florence, Italy, on January 4, 1989, by the approval of foundational documents and statutes by over 40 Humanist Parties from around the world. These foundational documents included the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, declaration of principles, the thesis and the basis for political action.
All of these documents reflect the philosophy of New or Universal Humanism developed since 1969 by Mario Rodríguez Cobos, pen name: Silo. This philosophy finds its inspiration in the non-violence movements of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi.
The five basic principles upon which all instances of the Humanist Party are based are:
- The value of human life as the central value, above money and power, etc.
- Equality of all human beings. No human being above another.
- Freedom of belief and ideas.
- Development and creation of alternative economic models to the current neoliberal one.
- Methodology of active non-violence.
