In the podcast, linked below, Chris Smith says that the country’s in no better shape than it was when we had protests to Parliament. Now he says they are organising a rally on the 26th August at Belmore Park in Sydney, right next to Central Station.
The new leader of the Consumer and Taxpayers’ Association (CATA) is Dr. Jim Sternhell.
After welcoming Jim, Smith asks why another rally?
JS: The Politicians have let us down, yet again; and even worse this time, because the power bills are going to go up very soon will add one thousand a year to the cost of living for no demonstrable benefit at all…..increase power bills for industry and cost even more jobs.
The themes of the rally are going to be:
- The rising cost of living;
- Retaining Australian values; and
- UN interference into Australian affair
JS: The Paris agreement was the large part of that. That’s from the UN and they’re
a large part of the problem.
Chris Smith asks Mr. Sternhell to tell about his fight against the UN.
JS: Well, the fight against the UN: They are actually unconstitutional. If you
look at Section 44: Part One of the Australian Constitution, if you bear obedience,
allegiance or assurance to a foreign power, you are not eligible to be even
selected in the Australian Parliament as an MP or a Senator. The UN are
effectively a private foreign power; they select their own people. We don’t get
a say in that at all. And if you are not one of THEM, you don’t get a Guernsey.
COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTION ACT - SECT 44
Any person who:
(i) is under any acknowledgment of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to
a foreign power, or is a subject or a citizen or entitled to the rights or
privileges of a subject or a citizen of a foreign power; or........
Chris and Jim then discuss the campaign which will mostly be conducted through social media.
The Venue: Belmore Park Sydney. See Map.
When: Sunday August 20th.
(Hint from Jim – At 3pm is when the Sun sets over the building and it starts freezing. There are times when a little Global Warming is a REALLY GOOD THING.)
