This is an important document which pulls together a lot of differing threads regarding the control of people and moving people off rural lands and into cities where they can control them.

The above link really concerns America however I believe that it is also applicable to the UK for the following reasons:-

Over the last several years in the UK it appears that a similar process is underway. TPTB have been doing this in incremental steps so as not to alert anyone. Now some may say that this is a stretch of the imagination but knowing how TPTB work I don't think so.

For a number of years now in the Lake District in the UK they have been wanting to reduce the number of sheep on the fells saying that they are overgrazing them. If you don't allow sheep to graze the bracken takes a hold and makes the land unuseable.

The National Trust are also using land management and telling their tennant farmers that they are not allowed to repair walls alongside rivers going through their farm land. The reason the National Trust gives is that they say they want the land to revert back to natural wet land. The land though has not been wet land for over several hundred years. This also impinges on landowners further down as they have problems with flooding, and the farmer looses valuable land for grazing.

The EU also pay set a side to farmers not to use the land but to let it run wild which reduces the amount of land available for food production.

The use of park and ride schemes the National Park are promoting instead of using cars in order as they say to save the environment are a two edged sword reducing the numbers of people visiting the National Parks and making it harder for people who live there to make a living. They are also trying to make the Lake District National Park into a World Wide Heritage Site which unlike many have people living in them. This will further impact on the number of people who live their. If you can't sustain work and places for people to live then people have to move away.

We also have in the UK many councils and public private partnerships which control the sort of houses people live in and can build.

Perhaps after reading the link others from the UK can also find other similarities and developments in the UK.

You bet your booties! They are trying to wipe out your Food Sovereignty to push everyone into "global governance. Here are a couple of histories on the take over of food But first a couple on "sustainability, Agenda 21 and the "wildlands Project" ALl by the same people who are behind the UN and World Trade Organization.

The Wildlands Project and UN Convention on Biological Diversity

US wildlands bills listed

Agenda 21 Info

food safety, WTO

US Council of Economic Develoment and food

The WTO and the Politics of GMO

2001 History of UK 2001 foot & mouth disease

2001 Polish entry into the European Union:EU Chair states intent to remove 1 million Poles from their land The Battle to Save the Polish Countryside:

Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) introduction of intellectual property rules on plants, animals and seeds under WTO’s Agreement “could damage the livelihoods of these 1.4 billion farmers worldwide and undermine food sovereignty and food security ” Joint Communication from the African Group to the Council for Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (2003)

1993 FAO prepares “the Global Strategy for the Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources”

June 2006 Global Diversity Treaty: Standard Material Transfer Agreement (SMTA) a standardized contract that will enable much easier access to crop diversity. [ germplasm for patenting] royalty payment (1.1% of sales) is paid only if product is unavailable for further breeding and research. funds will be devoted to conservation efforts. Translation: Bio-techs Corporations steal seed from third world farmers, patents it and pay money to Bioversity International

Hope that helps. Farmers in the USA figured out TPTB is after our farmland a few years ago. Now, thanks to the democrats, I am afraid we are about to lose it. The bills are already in Congress. Since the USA grows 25% of the worlds food supply, moving control from independent farmers to the corporate cartel is bad news for everyone.

Some really interesting links there. Sometimes when you look on conspiracy sites you wonder if you are imagining things. However when you start digging deeper lets just say that when you connect the dots you would never imagine what you eventually find.

Really scary stuff.
