STOP THE UNMIGRATION COMPACT

You may have seen my video this week about the UN Migration Pact, due to be signed in Morocco in December. The pact is non-binding but seeks for nation-states to make mass (illegal) migration easier and safer for migrants. While this may seem laudable, what it amounts to is an invitation for people to unlawfully make their way to Western countries, and requests that Western governments assist in this endeavour. This is a dangerous and irresponsible proposal that must be opposed. Several countries, including the United States, Australia and some Eastern European countries have said they will not sign the pact. We demand that the UK government do the same. There is a petition to the Government asking that it not sign this pact here – please sign.
Furthermore, we suggest you write to your MP to voice your dissent against this dangerous pact. A sample letter is below:
Dear (Your MP),
I write with regard to the UN Global Compact for Migration. The Compact intends to “reduce the risks and vulnerabilities migrants face at different stages of migration by respecting, protecting and fulfilling their human rights and providing them with care and assistance”.
It is my belief that the above amounts to an irresponsible invitation to people, often from the poorest countries, to attempt treacherous journeys towards Europe and other Western nations. This will inevitably result in an increase in human trafficking, as well as tragic and unnecessary death. The compact also asks that nation-states provide assistance to those undertaking such unlawful journeys. It is wrong for the United Nations to require nation-states to accommodate and assist mass migration that can place the interests and safety of their own citizens at risk.
The United States, Australia, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Bulgaria, and Slovenia have all refused to sign this agreement and I ask that the United Kingdom do the same.
The Prime Minister has promised an end to the free movement of people as part of her Brexit deal, therefore it is inconsistent for the British Government to agree to this UN proposal.
Please speak out in opposition to this agreement and inform the Prime Minister of concern among the British public.
Yours sincerely,
Thank you for speaking out on this vital issue

GLOBAL COMPACT FOR MIGRATION : NEW YORK DECLARATION

“For the first time on 19 September 2016 Heads of State and Government came together to discuss, at the global level within the UN General Assembly, issues related to migration and refugees. This sent an important political message that migration and refugee matters have become major issues in the international agenda. In adopting the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, the 193 UN Member States recognized the need for a comprehensive approach to human mobility and enhanced cooperation at the global level and committed to: protect the safety, dignity and human rights and fundamental freedoms of all migrants, regardless of their migratory status, and at all times;  support countries rescuing, receiving and hosting large numbers of refugees and migrants; integrate migrants – addressing their needs and capacities as well as those of receiving communities – in humanitarian and development assistance frameworks and planning; combating xenophobia, racism and discrimination towards all migrants; develop, through a state-led process, non-binding principles and voluntary guidelines on the treatment of migrants in vulnerable situations and strengthen global governance of migration, including by bringing IOM into the UN family and through the development of a Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration ”

The above comes direct from the International Organization For Migration website and the devil is , as usual , in the detail. Who is to decide what exactly constitutes xenophobia , racism and discrimination ?  Do I/you get to decide ?  And if we dissent in any way will we be accused of xenophobia , racism and discrimination or even worse ?  Jordan Peterson was accused of promoting genocide simply for raising concerns about Bill C16 and lesser mortals like you or I are called racist and bigoted at the drop of the proverbial hat on a daily basis in the mainstream media. Indeed there is a good case to be made that words such as ‘racism’ and ‘xenophobic ‘ are themselves a form hate speech that is used to delegitimize not only certain opinions but certain people too.

Within the Global Compact document there are constant references to human rights but the  UN Human Rights commission itself includes some of the greatest offenders of human rights such as Iran and Pakistan and so can no longer be regarded as a suitable arbitrator of what is and is not a human right. And meanwhile , back in the real world , we all know what will happen to anyone who does not get with the programme and who insists on being ‘decisive’ or unhelpful in any way……..So , keep your mouth shut , avert your eyes  , carry on as normal………and vote For Britain.
