Over the last twenty years, a “planning revolution” has taken place in Australia.

A revolution brought to you courtesy of ICLEI – (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives – Local Governments for Sustainability) – an international association of local councils, committed to implementing the UN’s Agenda 21/Sustainable Development at the local level.

What bothers me the most about ICLEI, is that it is an international NGO made up of local governments that hold private meetings on council policy that aren’t open – or accountable – to the people of Queensland.

Members are given webinar training sessions, regional workshops, international peer networking opportunities and a library of local government model ordinances, policies and resolutions.

ICLEI also represents Australia’s local governments at the UN’s Climate Conferences.

According to Australia’s Constitution, local governments are not supposed to engage in foreign policy.  That includes forming international alliances, treaties and/or agreements.

But, I’ve noticed that Australia’s Constitution no longer seems to be enforced.  Governments just do what they want regardless.

In any event, ICLEI initiatives have transformed Queensland radically on the principle that all human habitation must be restricted to land within the “Urban Growth Boundaries” of our cities, or “human settlement zones”.

Under ICLEI’s guidance, councils have revised zoning laws to allow high-density and small-lot development in urban areas, while imposing more and more restrictions on land uses in non-urban regions.

They want people off the land and into cramped, overpriced inner city apartments on the train line, where there’s no yard, no privacy and no parking.

At the policy level, rural and remote regions are being starved – or drip-fed – the revenue they need to maintain infrastructure and services.

Council roads are not maintained, parks and sporting facilities are left to rot, while police stations and hospitals are shut down.

Monies are instead diverted into ‘sustainability initiatives’ and ‘inner-city revitalisation’ programs.

Call it Smart Growth.  Call it Sustainable Development.  Call it Green Zoning, Capacity Building, Catalysing Change, Creative Pathways or whatever you like – it all amounts to one thing: a top-down, authoritarian agenda, with no input from the public.

Everything is done using phony neighbourhood groups and paid facilitators, trained at presenting a range of choices geared towards a pre-determined outcome.

It is only the illusion of ‘public buy-in’ they want.

Meanwhile, they have created so many planning boards, commissions, regional agencies, non-profits, roundtables, panels and committees, it is impossible for anyone to keep up with what is going on.

One thing, though, is unmistakable.

Everything that is happening, was meant to happen.

The plan is to restrict your choices, limit your funds, increase your anxiety, narrow your freedom and take away your voice.


Another big win for the Anti-Mandate Campaign yesterday, with the Gold Coast City Council reversing its earlier position on imposing a ‘no jab, no job’ policy on its workforce.

Over 400 Council workers stuck to their guns and refused to give up their right to bodily autonomy.

The gutsy workers banded together, calling themselves the Gold Coast Council Pro-Choice Alliance group, and engaged human rights lawyers to take their fight to the courts.

Fortunately, this will no longer be necessary after CEO Tim Baker announced yesterday that the Council had decided to can its earlier, and deeply unpopular, decision to impose mandates.

Mr Baker said the Council had received a new and updated risk assessment on “the consequences of being infected”.

The re-assessment found that “for most people who test positive for Covid-19, only flu-like symptoms develop which can be managed with non-prescription pain killers such as paracetamol”.

Mayor Tom Tate, who admits to being “pro-choice”, told the media:

“I’m pleased that everyone can come back to work and the main thing is the crucial services such as waste and water are now secure”.

Of course, those ‘brave defenders of truth and justice’ in the mainstream media are frothing at the mouth over the decision.

According to the irate Gold Coast Bulletin:

“Vaccinated staff (are) furious at being seated next to openly unvaccinated colleagues.”

Even the outlet’s ‘Opinion Poll’ question dripped with malice:

“Should people be FORCED to work with unvaccinated colleagues?”

Yeah, no propaganda or bias in that wording!

Throughout this whole ugly episode in Australia’s history, the media have been relentless in their use of propaganda and ‘weaponised language’ aimed at creating as much social division and enmity over mandates as possible.

However, since the hugely popular and successful Trucker convoys, both here and in Canada, I have noticed there has been a real shift in the popular mood when it comes to mandates.

People no longer seem so interested in demonising and persecuting their fellow citizens, many of whom are their neighbours, friends, co-workers and even family members.

Congratulations to all the Gold Coast Council Pro-Choice Alliance workers, who stuck by each other and stood their ground against the forces of medical tyranny.

As their website states: “This affects everyone in Australia.  Everyone”!

Well said, and well done!!
