As a member of World Scouting for 47 years , I must express my opinion about this news . It seems wrong to say " We are not a political organization or a humanitarian . " Are not we work for humanity? I guess it is due to an inadequate interpretation , but makes clear that a position is really dark . I am Venezuelan Scout (though I'm no longer active) and WOSM regret this position because as a great friend and a great scout says we teach the boys to decide for himself , to seek improvements in society, to fight for ideals within a framework of freedom and justice. We assist in their training to become active members in their community. It turns out that who we "groups " in the world, seems to " wash their hands " in a situation beyond being political , point of honor is peace , justice and human rights . Excuse me because I have always believed and still believe in Scouting as a method of training, development and personal growth, but I think I can come to understand how the WOSM or NOSA or even the ASV can stop rule to an "attack on peace and personal integrity . " And it is not " political position " but " humanitarian position " because if I think we are an organization that is working towards humanity , seek " leave a better world than we found ," so we can not look away and pretend that nothing happens ..... Yes happens in Ukraine and does happen in Venezuela and other countries unfortunately do not have what we preach as scouts ....
