Globalists Meet To Expand Power Of UN Worldwide
By Don Harkins
Pro-American advocates are coordinating a massive three-day national protest, beginning Sept. 6, against the "People's Millennium Assembly" of the United Nations in New York.
Protest organizers say the assembly will usher in the age of global governance. The assembly is the greatest op portunity pro-Americans will have to stop the UN and gain momentum for getting the U.S. out, organizers told The SPOTLIGHT.
Former Soviet dictator-turned-environmentalist Mikhail Gorbachev is scheduled to open the assembly Sept. 4 at the New York Hilton. The assembly, which is expected to be attended by all 188 member nations of the global so cialist organization, will continue through Sept. 10.
Assembly participants will consider the adoption of a revised version of the UN Charter, known as the Charter for Global Democracy.
The new charter calls for the massive restructuring and strengthening of UN authority worldwide. The UN will unveil plans to expedite the implementation of world government, The SPOTLIGHT has learned.
The new UN Charter calls for the creation of a global IRS to tax email communications and international money transfers and to place a worldwide tax on energy products. The tax revenue would be used to fund the World Trade Organization's control of international commerce through World Bank influence over the global economy.
Also under the new charter, there would be a standing UN army establish ed to enforce international law. People who violate international law would be prosecuted in the UN International Criminal Court.
Among the organizers for the Millennium Assembly protest are the newspaper, The Idaho Observer; the American Policy Center; the Restoring America Committee and Detroit talk show host Tom Wayne.
On Sept. 6, Wayne will lead protests in front of the UN headquarters. There also will be rallies held at noon in front of district offices of members of Congress.
Organizers said the purpose of the protests is to peacefully demand congressional support for the American Sov ereignty Restoration Act, H.R. 1146, sponsored Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.). If passed by Congress, the legislation would effectively cease all American participation in UN activities and end all U.S. funding.
A national call-in to the switchboard on Capitol Hill is scheduled for Sept. 7, beginning at noon Eastern time. The call-in will enable Americans to express their opposition to trading national sovereignty for global governance, according to or ganizers. SPOTLIGHT readers are en couraged to call their congressman and two senators by contacting the Capitol Hill switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
Tom DeWeese, executive director of the American Policy Center, plans to hold a press conference Sept. 8 on Capitol Hill to explain to the American public why "this is not your father's UN."
Joining DeWeese will be Paul and Rep. Helen Chenoweth-Hage (R-Idaho), who supports H.R. 1146. DeWeese will deliver to Congress 250,000 petitions signed by Americans who support Paul's bill.
What can you do to voice your opposition to global governance? Here are a few suggestions:
• Organize a group to converge on the district office of your congressman or two senators at noon your time on Sept. 6. Make signs. Call your local media outlets and tell them what you intend to do. Re member to protest peacefully, insisting that your congressmen support HR 1146.
• Coordinate letters-to-the-editor writing campaigns among your fellow acti vists over the several days before, during and after the Millennium Assembly. Make sure you hit the same points several times so that the local readers begin to understand the truth about the UN. Con tact local talk radio and calmly in form people about the UN and the significance of the Millennium Assembly.
• Beginning at noon your time on Sept. 7, call your congressman and two senators in Washington. You can locate them through the Capitol Hill switchboard at the telephone number listed above.
• You may want to call the district office of your congressman and ask for a copy of H.R. 4453, which is the complete opposite of Paul's proposed Sovereignty Restoration Act. H.R. 4453 promises U.S. support and participation in the creation of a standing UN army, which would be given the authority to police on American soil. This bill is supported by many members of Congress.
