How big corporations & Bill Gates took over the UN Food Summit
An exposé by Nils McCune and Camila Escalante, September 23, 2021 thegrayzone.com
It’s a story that’s sick in itself, but the outrageous perfidy and under-handedness at play causes me to commit thought crimes. It’s under copyright, so I’ll feature one section, and you can read the rest or watch their brilliant video below.
The new UN: a public-private partnership:
“In June 2019, the office of UN General Secretary António Guterres, without previous discussion in the General Assembly or any other intergovernmental process, signed a strategic partnership with the World Economic Forum.
The secretary-general is supposed to be the world’s leading advocate for multilateralism, the idea at the core of the UN. Instead, he has effectively endorsed multi-stakeholderism, the core idea of the Great Reset.
The 2021 UN Food Systems Summit was initiated through a partnership with the World Economic Forum, with limited participation of other UN bodies, such as the Food and Agriculture Organization or the Committee on World Food Security, which traditionally handle food policies.
In contrast to previous food summits, there was no intergovernmental body that convened the summit.
The current president of AGRA, Agnes Kalibata, was named as special envoy to the summit, a clear sign of the hand of the Gates Foundation.
The lack of transparency and corporate agenda of the summit were denounced in an open letter signed by more than 500 civil society organizations in March 2020.”
Yes, Prince Charles has been hawking Green Bonds, etc. at Davos for a couple years. Can't be too rich or too thin, eh, Charlie?
