We are “at risk of losing our inalienable right to wild places” – the thin end of the Agenda 21/2030 wedge Kiwis

scenery-ohope-etc-19-3-07-022

If you’ve read about Agenda 21, now also called Agenda 2030, the latter being the date by which the UN Agenda for global governance is scheduled to eventuate, you will prick your ears up at this item of news by Stuff (see below). And if you know about Agenda 21/2030 you will also know that mainstream media is controlled by a very few  corporations (six last count) and tells you only what the corporations want you to hear. That established and if you are not familiar with this UN agenda you need to get reading. The agenda is characterized within our local governments by the all too familiar catch words ‘sustainable development’ paid lip service to only going by the trashing of the environment that’s been happening with DCs’ blessing. (You will find links on our Agenda 21/2030 pages, Kiwis particularly read the NZ page).  Your freedoms are being carefully pulled out right from under your nose. Not too suddenly mind, just slowly enough that you won’t notice. Having familiarized myself with the agenda for a few years now, any mention by the powers that be regarding privatizing our wilderness areas is a warning bell. This is happening already in the US. The aim is to corral us all into the cities & make the wildernesses literally inaccessible. In an article at intellihub.com an instance is cited from 1998 in the US where  “commissioners were approached by Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks (FWP) state land manager … with a proposal to cooperate in driving rural residents out of the Montana countryside into cities.” Horrified, the exchange that followed explained their intentions within an economic framework also. Read what happened at the link.  Following is a quote from citizenreviewonline.org that summarizes what has been happening:

“Step by step, piece by piece, the Wildlands Project is coming to fruition. The Project, foundational to the U.N. Biodiversity Treaty which was never ratified by the U.S. Senate, calls for approximately 50 percent of the United States to be set aside as “wildlands”, where no human can enter. Much has been accomplished over the past 10 years toward that goal, and the pace is stepping up, with the help of the federal agencies under Clinton/Gore. (And so much more since then!) From control of the water – to taking land out of private ownership – to “protecting” numerous species – all the pieces of the puzzle work together to form the complete picture. People remain unaware of the size and scope of the operation because land is being taken in the name of “endangered species”. 
The Wildlands Project 

“Fifty per cent … where no human can enter!” Note in the Stuff article how just the idea of privatizing the wilderness places is being put forward. This is how these people operate. They will introduce you to the idea so that months or years down the track when you thought they’d forgotten about it, it will happen.

Now to the average reader this all looks pretty normal. It is being presented to currently within an economic framework. People need to be ‘stumping up’ it’s proposed for the privilege of viewing our beautiful country. The topic is being introduced with the conclusion that things need to be handled better and there it will likely rest for the time being, but watch this space. These people work by increments.

As a last thought, remember we were told in the mass hysteria that surrounded the Foreshore and Seabed Act, that if Māori were given ownership of the foreshore the public would lose access to the beaches. Well currently large chunks of our country are in the ownership of foreigners who own whole islands. Where is the outcry now? Herald has just published an article on that topic. You can read it at the link.
Utopia Divided: What costs of playgrounds for millionaire migrants?
After reading the Herald article here is another on the same theme:
Key Wants to Turn NZ Into a Haven for the 1%


Here are three articles including those cited already that in my opinion, link these seeming benign proposals for action with the Agenda 21/2030 plan.

Kiwis Risk Losing an ‘unalienable right to wild places

CHARLIE MITCHELL
Stuff.co.nz    23 Dec 2016

A rush to make New Zealand’s wild places profitable is putting the “unalienable rights” of Kiwis at risk, a recreation group says.

Growing tourism numbers are having an impact around the country, but nowhere more so than the wilder reaches of the South Island.

Infrastructure in once remote areas such as Mackenzie and Central Otago is groaning beneath the weight of the influx.

A recent report commissioned by a group of tourism leaders, prepared by consultants McKinsey & Company, came up with a raft of measures that would raise $130 million each year to ease the problem.

They included a bed tax, fees for car parking at national parks, and privatising the Great Walks, which collectively lose about $3m each year under Department of Conservation (DOC) management.

  1. Hi Pam, Thanks for blogging about this. I saw or heard that news article, about New Zealanders having to pay to use our own national parks. Two years ago we stopped at Waitangi to see the Treaty house, which was left in trust for the people of NZ. It is supposed to be free for us New Zealanders to visit. Not anymore. It’s $20 each, with ID required at the tourist gate. So I’m not surprised our parks are next 😦
    It’s just more neo-liberal ‘user pays’ garbage. Well, they can’t fence off everything 🙂
    Happy New Year, Jo

    1. Wow, $20, that’s a steep fee! And ID required! Did they say why ID? I’m curious. And I agree they can’t fence everything but I’m sure they’ll try 🙂 Oh & Happy NY to you too Jo

      1. Hi Pam,
        ID has to be produced at the Waitangi Visitors Centre to prove we’re New Zealanders, otherwise we pay the tourists price.
        We visited there in 2011 on a week’s holiday. We weren’t supposed to pay, but pressure was bought on us at the entrance to buy a souvenir book ($20.) I said no but my kind-hearted husband isn’t good with hard sell tactics and bought it. While we were looking at the carved waka, my husband got a call on his mobile from our biggest customers that their email server had fallen over. He went back to the car, to remote in with his laptop and cellphone and fix the problem. He was gone such a long time that I came back to the car. I figured we could come back another time – because we’d seen the Treaty House wasn’t fenced in from the road at the back. The big flash visitor’s centre was for tourists, and we figured the road at the back was for New Zealaners. We’d go in that way and leave a koha in the donation box.
        So in 2015 we revisited the place – only to find it fenced off. Then at the main gate we were told there was now an admission fee! I said an abrupt ‘no thanks’ and walked out. At least we’d both been through the Treaty House three years before.
        So anyway I tell people don’t bother about going to Waitangi. Paihia is nice, I recommend going there, and Russell.

      2. That’s sad really isn’t it? What you say really reveals the plasticity of the whole thing. $20 is a very high entry fee. $5 maybe … But $20? Wonder what the foreigners pay!
