Dear friends,

We are on a mission, the one of uniting the world 🌍. For Freedom. For Equity. For Wellbeing. 

Imagine a world where wealth and power are democratized, people and groups have access to equity, and we manage to unite beyond borders. Imagine this happening everywhere humans are, beyond divisions. Now stop imagining, and start building with us!

.. . and that’s not all: we have a lot of news. Read on for all the details ​​⤵️


🖊️ OUR POLITICAL TAKE ON MIGRATION

“My brother died for a dream we all have”, said a relative of one of the 63 people who drowned near Cape Verde. They left Senegal on board an overcrowded wooden pirogue to reach Spain, searching for a better life.

Countless lives are lost every day because of our active choice to let people die when they are attempting to flee places with no opportunities, where they are prosecuted or live in extremely dire situations. They have no safe way to reach wealthier nations and must put their lives at risk to find an escape route. In 2022, an estimated 6,876 individuals died attempting to migrate, according to  IOM - UN Migration . “No one put their children on a boat unless the water is safer that the land” a famous poem goes.

It does not have to be that way. Borders and nations are a fictional concept: no one should have the right to determine whether you or I have access to opportunities, whether our lives are miserable or prosperous because of factors outside our control. Borders must be open, and they will be. In the meantime, as the current idiotic system stands, people must be granted legal migration routes, especially toward aging countries that need plenty of motivated young people to rejuvenate society.

👉 In other news, Saudi 🇸🇦 border guards are accused of killing hundreds of people, many of them Ethiopians, who cross war-torn Yemen to reach the country. You can read my take on Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram


🫶 GET READY FOR UNITY DAY

To make this dream of a united, borderless world a reality, we must unite, fast. So let’s get started on September 2nd  💫 for Atlas’ Unity Day to discuss how to Tax multinationals across the world, as more than $400 billion are lost each year in tax avoidance & evasion.

Unity Day is a global get-together EVERY 1st Saturday of the month, during which we celebrate Unity and what it could mean for the world. We explore divisive questions, exchange on what might be done, and might just choose to take action for change! 

And it’s happening everywhere. Join us:
