Tak­ing is­sue with UN agree­ments

Gatton Star - - NEWS OPINION - — G Camp­bell, Lai­d­ley

WHY do things that hap­pen over­seas have an im­pact on this peace­ful val­ley?

All the rot starts off­shore and, with­out con­sul­ta­tion, we are signed up for ide­o­log­i­cal UN agree­ments that even­tu­ally harm us eco­nom­i­cally. Way back in 2001, Van­dana Shiva wrote a pa­per for the In­ter­na­tional So­cial­ist Re­view about the way big cor­po­ra­tions, backed by the World Bank, ma­nip­u­late wa­ter man­age­ment for profit.

The UN is sup­port­ive un­der the la­bel of “wa­ter co-op­er­a­tion”. The in­for­ma­tion on cor­po­rate ex­ploita­tion was avail­able 16 years ago but they pri­va­tised our wa­ter ser­vices any­way.

Ba­sic sup­ply and de­mand. Cre­ate a short­age, in­crease de­mand so in­creased prices. Higher prices mean more govern­ment rev­enue. The UN in­creases de­mand for fi­nan­cial aid in hu­man­i­tar­ian and peace­keep­ing mea­sures.

Why do they de­mand it from us while oil-rich coun­tries sit­ting on the hu­man rights council do ab­so­lutely noth­ing to as­sist peo­ple in their re­gion? (be­cause we are stupid!). If you dare to ques­tion it the in­doc­tri­nated young peo­ple of the left shut you down as be­ing a “racist”.

While our food pro­duc­ers strug­gle, the UN gains power via th­ese agree­ments and legally we have to abide by treaties that are detri­men­tal to the peo­ple of Aus­tralia.

Why don’t they give us a say be­fore they give away our fu­ture? Don’t they work for us? Some of our MPS even get re­warded for the dam­age they cause with very in­flu­en­tial Un-spon­sored po­si­tions af­ter we kick them out. Ev­ery­body at the top is happy. It is no ac­ci­dent the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
