This blog has been calling the Greens a bunch of eco-leftards for ages but I’m not so sure the recent dummy spit from Labor about their alliance partners is real. If Labor is really fair dinkum, then Gillard should tear-up the alliance agreement. She won’t and all this talk is just that – talk.
The Australian newspaper editorial from the 9th September is spot on with their remark about the Greens:
Greens leader Bob Brown has accused The Australian of trying to wreck the alliance between the Greens and Labor. We wear Senator Brown's criticism with pride. We believe he and his Green colleagues are hypocrites; that they are bad for the nation; and that they should be destroyed at the ballot box.
So if it’s ok for the editorial of the Australian to call for the destruction of the Greens, then surely it’s ok to call for the destruction of the UN? After all, the Greens and the UN share the same political ideology.
For example, the UN wants the following global taxes:
Financial Transaction Tax
The Greens also want the following taxes:
Carbon Tax – already got it (refer taxation – point 26)
Financial Transaction Tax (refer global economics measures – point 15)
Millionaires Tax (refer taxation – point 22.8)
The UN and the Greens don’t want any ports along the Great Barrier Reef.
In fact, below are all the Greens policies that directly support the UN and their related bodies:
Sign and ratify the Cartagena Biosafety Protocol (on the safe international transfer, handling and use of living modified organisms) so that Australia fulfils its responsibilities under the Convention on Biological Diversity.
Ensure that Australia adopts a definition of environmental refugee in its assessment criteria and works in the UN system for inclusion of a definition in the United Nations Refugee Convention.
Ratify all United Nations Human Rights Conventions, including their optional protocols
Grant the families of approved asylum seekers permission to migrate to Australia for family reunions within a reasonable time, in accordance with the UNHCR humanitarian program.
Implement the 1994 United Nations International Conference on Population. The Greens believe that Australia must contribute to achieving a globally sustainable population.
Provide a commitment by Australia to support the work of the UN, to abide by its charter and resolutions, and to meet financial obligations to the institution.
The level of Australian overseas aid increased to a minimum of 0.7% of GNP by 2010, as mandated by the UN.
Support the inclusion of a category for environmental refugees in the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Refugee Convention.
The leading role of the UN in the maintenance of international peace and security must be recognised and respected by all countries.
Support the establishment, by the UN, of an international crisis prevention and response centre to address threats from terrorism and other conflicts, to provide rapid response peacekeeping forces, and to rapidly respond to humanitarian crises.
Support the establishment of an international environmental court and an environmental council at the UN, with similar decision-making powers to the Security Council to deal with environmental issues of global significance.
Making changes to UN decision making bodies to ensure that they more democratically represent the peoples of the world.
Australia to play a leading role in securing global contributions to UN and other international appeals for funding, expertise and logistical support to deal with humanitarian emergencies wherever they occur.
Fair international relations with other peoples and governments in accordance with the United Nations (UN) Charter and international law.
Seek the creation of a UN sanctioned regulatory environment to govern the operation of transnational companies, tax havens and flags of convenience.
The Greens and the UN share a lot in common.
A vote for the Greens is a vote for the UN and that’s a vote for the establishment of a New Eco-World Order.
