HNewsWire: Guns and dietary restrictions People are under media domination. They are exclusively devoted to achieving global population control. They should be shut down along with the Biden Administration, UN, WHO, NIAH, CDC, and FDA since they are a bad organization.
Numerous experts told The Epoch Times that the United Nations' "Agenda 2030" Sustainable Development Goals and the U.N.'s partners at the World Economic Forum (WEF) are closely related to the escalating regulatory assault on agricultural producers from Holland and the United States to Sri Lanka and beyond.
In fact, a number of the U.N.'s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are directly tied to the implementation of laws that put pressure on global agriculture, ranching, and food sources.
The Epoch Times has previously reported that high-ranking Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members inside the U.N. system assisted in the development of the SDGs and are presently assisting in directing the organization's execution of the global strategy.
The U.N.-backed sustainability regulations on agricultural and food production, according to a number of experts, would cause economic ruin, shortages of essential items, widespread starvation, and a significant loss of personal liberties if not stopped.
On January 17, 2022, in Cologny, Switzerland, Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), was there for the start of the WEF Davos Agenda.
Officials predict that as the year goes on, the hazardous food shortages that millions of people are now experiencing will only worsen.According to experts interviewed by The Epoch Times, everything has a purpose.
According to U.N. papers seen by The Epoch Times, private land ownership is in the cross-hairs as global food production and the global economy are altered to fulfill the global sustainability objectives.
The objectives set in 2015 "built on decades of effort by governments and the U.N.," as the U.N. explains on its SDG website. The United Nations Conference on Human Settlements, often known as Habitat I, which issued the Vancouver Declaration, was one of the first conferences to define the "sustainable" agenda.
According to the agreement, private land ownership is "a key mechanism of wealth accumulation and concentration, consequently contributes to social inequality," and "land cannot be viewed as an ordinary asset possessed by people."
The U.N. resolution said that "public management of land use is consequently vital," setting up the World Economic Forum's now-famous "forecast" that by 2030, "you'll own nothing."
Since then, a number of U.N. organizations and representatives have described their vision of "sustainable," which includes demands for significant limits on energy use, meat consumption, travel, living space, and material affluence.
According to experts consulted by The Epoch Times, some of the richest and most powerful business executives in the world are collaborating with communists in China and other countries to monopolize food production and eliminate independent farmers and ranchers.
On April 28, 2020, Chinese military forces march across Beijing's Tiananmen Square. The WEF is one of the United Nations' "strategic partners" on Agenda 2030. It is a network of significant global corporations that works closely with the CCP.
As officials from all over the world, including U.S. President Joe Biden and the head of the United Nations World Food Programme David Beasley, warn of impending food shortages worldwide, the regulation of food production is becoming more strict, and there are even attempts to shut down many farms and ranches.
But Western nations and many aid-dependent states are tightening regulations even more, rather than loosening them and promoting more output.
This summer, Dutch farmers—who were already near breaking point—responded with widespread, huge demonstrations. That was followed by tumultuous upheaval in Sri Lanka related to food shortages brought on by political decisions.
Governments and international organizations have used a variety of justifications for the policy, such as fostering "economic fairness," safeguarding diverse species of flora and wildlife, and even giving back land to indigenous peoples.
On June 29, 2022, tractors pass past Dutch police officers on patrol as they limit the A1 highway's entrance to Apeldoorn to prevent farmers from protesting the Dutch government's intentions to reduce nitrogen emissions.
However, the measures' detractors contend that the objective isn't at all to protect the environment or stop climate change. The "sustainable" story and the other explanations, the experts caution, are really a tactic to obtain control over food, farm, and people.
According to Craig Rucker, head of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a public policy group that focuses on environmental and development concerns, the ultimate purpose of these activities is to lessen sovereignty on both individual countries and individuals.
The purpose, he said to The Epoch Times, is to consolidate authority at the national and even worldwide level. "The intent for those promoting this agenda is not to preserve the earth, as they profess, but to expand control over people," he said.
Agenda 2030 for the UN's Sustainable Development Goals
The United Nations and its member nations approved the Sustainable Development Goals, often known as Agenda 2030, in 2015 as a roadmap for "transforming our planet." The 17 objectives include 169 targets covering every aspect of the economy and human life, and are hailed by senior U.N. officials as a "master plan for mankind" and a worldwide "declaration of interdependence."
The document's preface states that "no one will be left behind" and states that "all nations and all stakeholders, working in constructive cooperation, shall execute this plan."
Goal 10 of the U.N. plan includes, among other things, redistribution of wealth on a national and worldwide scale, as well as "major changes in the way that our communities generate and use products and services." UNHRC
Speaking at the United Nations in Geneva on February 27, 2020, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet provided an overview of the Human Rights Council's session.
The SDGs emphasize using government to reform all economic activity, with Goal 12 requiring "sustainable consumption and production patterns." Several of the particular goals listed in Goal 12 are closely related to agricultural practices that jeopardize food production. These include "efficient use of natural resources and sustainable management."
The treaty requires "environmentally sound management of chemicals and their wastes throughout their life cycle, in conformity with accepted international frameworks," which is perhaps more significant.
As a consequence, "substantially reducing their release to air, water, and soil is required to limit their detrimental effects on human health and the environment," in particular for farmers.
Goal 14 of the SDGs, which tackles "marine pollution of all types, in particular from land-based activities, including... nutrient pollution," is another SDG that is closely related to what detractors have termed the "war on farmers." Agriculture and food production are often cited by the U.N. as threats to the ocean.
Leading the effort is the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), which is overseen by Qu Dongyu, a former vice minister of agriculture and rural affairs for the CCP.
The U.N. body asks for severe limitations on the use of fertilizers, pesticides, emissions, and water in the agricultural sector in its 2014 report, "Building a Common Vision for Sustainable Food and Agriculture: Principles and Approaches."
According to the FAO study, "over use of nitrogen fertilizer is a significant source of water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions." This statement serves as an illustration of how agriculture must be transformed in order for it to be recognized by the U.N. as sustainable.
A request for comment was not answered by the FAO in Rome.
At a three-day meeting on food security held by the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome on June 3, 2008, then-French President Nicolas Sarkozy (L) delivers a speech.
Goal 2 of the 17 SDGs, which calls for "sustainable agriculture" and "sustainable food production," is another one that directly affects these two sectors of the economy.
Goal 6 refers to "sustainable management of water," which has a number of objectives regarding runoff and agricultural water usage.
Goal 13 is significant as well since, in the eyes of U.N. officials, agriculture and food production are major factors in what they refer to as "manmade climate change." "Integrate climate change measures into national policies, plans, and planning," it demands of countries.
There are several goals for Goal 15's sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, which also have an impact on agriculture and food production.
National and regional governments from all over the globe are collaborating with U.N. organizations to put these sustainability objectives in place in the agricultural and other industries.
For instance, the European Union implemented many UN-backed biodiversity projects, such as Natura 2000 and the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, in response to U.N. biodiversity accords. The Dutch government and other governments have highlighted these programs in their agricultural policies.
The United Nations also brags in public about its participation in enforcing the SDGs in Sri Lanka and other countries that are experiencing food shortages and economic disasters related to the same international sustainability initiatives.
The SDGs will be incorporated into national laws and regulations practically everywhere in the globe, according to national governments.
"Partnership" with the World Economic Forum
Many "stakeholders" work with the U.N. to achieve sustainable development principles via "public-private partnerships."
The WEF, which has been promoting the "Great Reset"—a complete reorganization of society—since 2020, is at the center of this initiative. The U.N. and the WEF established a "strategic relationship" in 2019 to push Agenda 2030 among international corporations.

"Areas of collaboration to strengthen institutional participation and cooperatively expedite the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development" were identified in the formal agreement.
Many of the major players behind Agenda 2030, including prominent U.N. figures like the self-described socialist current Secretary-General António Guterres, have also been involved with the WEF for years.
The WEF's objectives have been made clear in the meanwhile. Recently, the organization established the "Food Action Alliance" (FAA), which states on its website that Agenda 2030 "informs the FAA's vision to create a durable and long-term framework for multi-stakeholder action on food systems to accomplish the SDGs."
The FAA of the WEF published a paper establishing its own "leadership agenda for multi-stakeholder engagement to change food systems" in conjunction with the U.N.'s "Food Systems Summit" in September 2021.
The paper includes a summary of the FAA's perspectives on "promoting transformational food system partnerships, and its value proposition beyond the UN Food Systems Summit 2021 towards reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals," among other things.
The public's interest in changing agriculture and the food supply dates back at least ten years, according to the WEF. The WEF published a study in 2010 proposing a "new vision for agriculture" with a "roadmap for stakeholders" in collaboration with several businesses. There are several of the biggest food firms in the world that control the market and possess a ton of well-known brands engaged.
The WEF website is crammed with data that supposedly supports "stakeholders'" complete transformation of the food chain. On its "Strategic Intelligence" platform, the WEF regularly cites the FAO as a source and states that "effective coordination among a wide group of stakeholders will be essential as global food systems become more interconnected."
"The opportunity to design innovative, systemic approaches to food systems that engage a broad range of stakeholders provides chances to help feed the world sustainably far into the future."
The term "stakeholders" is often used by the organization to refer to governments, corporations, and purported nonprofit groups that are frequently supported by these same corporations and governments. They are all collaborating to solve the problem.
For instance, the WEF brags that it has enlisted the support of corporate behemoths like Coca-Cola and Unilever to promote a "more sustainable future."
Another important actor is the Rockefeller Foundation, which recently published a paper on how to "Reset the Table" and "Transform the U.S. Food System."
The "Food Innovation Hubs" established by the WEF will play a significant role in this worldwide shift. The Netherlands will host the "Global Coordinating Secretariat of the World Economic Food Innovation Hubs," according to Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, who addressed the World Economic Forum on "transforming food systems and land use" at Davos Agenda Week last year.
He said that the secretariat "will link all other Food Innovation Hubs" in order to make "the relationships we need" possible. Requests for comment about their involvement in Agenda 2030 and the agricultural policies being pursued globally received no response from the WEF or the Rockefeller Foundation.
Powerful tax-exempt foundations like the Gates Foundation, the many regional governments modeled after the EU, and different nonprofits they finance are among the other organizations and institutions supporting the campaign.
Farmer Pressure, the Food Supply, and
Globally, farmers are being squeezed by U.N. SDG-aligned government policies, particularly smaller, independent producers that cannot afford the additional expenses of more regulation and oversight.
At the United Nations COP26 climate meeting in 2021, newly deposed Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa stated that his country was outlawing artificial fertilizers and pesticides.
On July 6, 2022, in Colombo, farmers participating in an anti-government demonstration calling for the resignation of Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa due to the nation's economic problems are dispersed by police using water cannons.
To great applause, Rajapaksa informed global leaders that Sri Lanka has just limited the importation of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and weedicides "owing to public health concerns, water pollution, soil degradation, and consequences on biodiversity."
"Despite being challenged by powerful lobbies, this has opened doors for investment and innovation in organic agriculture, which will lead to healthier and more sustainable food systems in the future."
Although they were quickly reversed, the measures actually led to severe food shortages, widespread famine, and ultimately, a public uprising that toppled the president and his administration.
The socialist government of Sri Lanka also collaborated with the U.N. Environment Programme in 2019 to launch the U.N. Global Nitrogen Campaign, which supports the U.N.-backed nitrogen policies that are now spreading around the globe.
Authorities in the Netherlands, where the "Food Innovation Hub" secretariat of the WEF is based, are enforcing nitrogen regulations that are anticipated to destroy the country's highly productive agriculture economy. The proposals also call for extensive agricultural expropriation.
According to Gideon van Meijeren of the Forum for Democracy party, who is a Dutch member of parliament, "the expropriation proposals of the government constitute a straightforward declaration of war on the agricultural sector," as reported by De Dagelijkse Standaard. Farmers are being stolen of their land under false pretenses, century-old farms are being destroyed, and farmers' families are being completely devastated.
Experts cautioned that such sustainability regulations might have harmful effects such as food shortages, increasing costs, societal instability, and more. According to Bonner Cohen, senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research, "you may see the green, sustainable future by beholding Holland and Sri Lanka today," as quoted in The Epoch Times.
But the agenda is quickly gaining ground. Following curbs on energy output, Canadian federal authorities this week placed similar restrictions on nitrogen and fertilizers, infuriating farmers and provincial leaders.
Several governmental organizations are also aiming to reduce agricultural output in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and other European countries as part of sustainability projects.
The Biden administration is attempting to enforce "Environmental, Social, and Governance" measurements and reporting on firms via the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, in addition to maintaining programs that reward farmers for not growing food.
Farm groups and more than 100 members of Congress claim that the proposal will bankrupt owners of small and medium-sized farms, leaving them unable to meet the demands of public companies' climate reporting standards even as the globe approaches a severe food crisis.
According to experts, one reason for the persistence of these regulations is because those who are enforcing them are generally shielded from the harm they are producing.
"Global elites in government, transnational organizations, and corporate boardrooms—well represented in the WEF—are so caught up in their climate virtue signaling, from which many hope to financially benefit through investments in green energy, that they are slow to notice that they are completely detached from reality," said Cohen, who specializes in environmental issues at the National Center for Public Policy Research.
"Farmers are being subjected to restrictions from people who have hardly ever visited one. These individuals are protected from the effects of the bad policies they impose on the rest of the world because of the power and riches they already possess. The Davos elite and their criminal allies have no idea who the average person in the globe is who is bearing that load. Experts: Small, Independent Farms are at Risk
According to Sterling Burnett, who holds a doctorate in environmental ethics and is the director of the nonprofit Heartland Institute's Arthur B. Robinson Center on Climate and Environmental Policy, Sri Lanka's disaster provides a preview of what will happen to the United States and Europe if policymakers continue to implement the U.N. sustainability agenda.
The Epoch Times quoted him as saying, "It's not a war on farming; it's a fight on small farming and independent farmers. It is a struggle waged to sustain affluent, extensive agricultural enterprises.
On June 29, 2022, farmers demonstrate against the Dutch government's nitrogen plans on the A1 motorway near Rijssen. They park their cars close to a border sign marking the German/Netherlands boundary.
Burnett said that while the U.N. SDGs mention assisting "small-scale food producers," the organization is really targeting independent farms and ranches in order to increase its level of control over the food supply.
He said that large business interests like Conagra, BlackRock, State Street, Vanguard, and others had policymakers "in the pocket."He echoed fears shared by many other experts, saying, "They would just as soon have all their minor rivals driven out of business."
Burnett said the CEO of the corporation managing the most money in the world, BlackRock, Larry Fink, "wants to force his ideals on firms using other people's money."
Fink is a prominent architect of the movement to impose "environmental, social, and governance" standards on U.S. firms. He is on the board of the influential Council on Foreign Relations and collaborates closely with the WEF.
Burnett added, referring to people he claims are willing to collaborate with communists on the project, "This is the super-rich foisting their ideals on the rest of us."
According to the World Economic Forum, you cannot have a Great Reset without also resetting the food supply since everyone needs food. Stalin understood this: The person in charge of the food controls the populace. Likewise with energy.
Major businesses, working with governments and international organizations, will pick up the pieces when prices skyrocket and farmers go bankrupt.
Meanwhile, as we've lately seen in Sri Lanka, starving people who are pushed to the limit are inclined to retaliate.
In reference to the protest and breach at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, Burnett said, "People were not hungry on January 6." People won't just sit around and do nothing when they are hungry, thus the supply chain issue is already emptying stores.
Tom DeWeese, the founder and president of the American Policy Center and a renowned sustainability specialist and detractor of U.N. sustainability ideals, cautioned that the assault on farms was a component of a larger plan to rob people of their independence.
"Tyrannical powers have always raised armies and invaded, damaged things, murdered people, and imposed subjection when they intended to govern the globe," DeWeese told The Epoch Times. We are now battling with a demonic entity that has found a means to get us to willingly give up our liberty so they may enslave us.
"What could be an instrument so potent? Environmental Armageddon is a real danger, he said, citing the climate change myth as the best illustration. DeWeese asserts that the aim is to reshape the world and consolidate control over the populous, not to rescue the environment, citing various U.N. officials and papers.
He said that in addition to the U.N. and the WEF, significant corporations like Vanguard and BlackRock are striving to seize control of and regulate the food supply. The global food and beverage business is already dominated by a small number of companies in which those two investment firms own the majority of the stock. They will control everything if they take over the farms.
He said that they wanted to possess all seeds and even produce synthetic meat in facilities that were already receiving financial support from billionaires like Bill Gates. "The aim is to have absolute control over food production," he stated.
Additionally, genetically modified crops are high on the agenda. Insects and weeds are being promoted as food by the U.N., the WEF, and others. Insect protein manufacturing facilities are quickly expanding across the Western world.
DeWeese claims that things do, however, get worse. He continued, saying that depopulation and control of mankind have been on the agenda of the world's elites for decades. "If people are hungry, they are lot easier to enslave."
The "war on farmers" also coincides with what opponents have dubbed a "war on energy" supported by the government that is having an impact on nearly every industry, including agriculture.
This includes restrictions on energy development, the closure of power facilities, the imposition of additional levies and taxes, and other measures that have caused prices to rise quickly in the Western world, but not in nations like China.
The experts The Epoch Times spoke with advised Americans to use a range of tactics to oppose the U.N.-backed environmental rules and the attack on farms. These include being politically active, changing one's buying habits, looking for alternate food sources like regional farmers, among other things.
