UN Global Compact: What Happens Next?
Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl recently said that she was "astonished" to learn that the legal opinion of the Legal Service of the European Commission "represents a different opinion than the previously communicated [opinion that the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration is] legally non-binding." She handed over to Austrian EU Commissioner Johannes Hahn a position paper, clarifying that "UN General Assembly resolutions are not legally binding and you cannot declare parts of them binding."

In December, world leaders of 165 countries adopted an ostensibly non-binding agreement that propagates a radical idea: that migration — for any reason — is something that needs to be promoted, enabled and protected[1].

The agreement is named the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), and now comes its implementation. The UN has not wasted any time in setting this “non-binding” Compact in motion. Already at the Marrakesh Conference in December, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres launched the Migration Network (Network)[2], a new addition to the UN bureaucracy, and seemingly intended to “ensure effective and coherent system‑wide support to the implementation of the Global Compact”. The International Organization for Migration (IOM) will serve as the coordinator and secretariat of all constituent parts of the Network in implementing the Global Compact.

The UN, in other words, has set its enormous bureaucratic infrastructure into full motion to see to it that the Compact will have maximum impact across the globe.

IOM director-general Antonio Vitorino has already sent a warning to critics of the UN migration agenda. “If we want to succeed in having a more humane and better world, we should resist the temptation of negative narratives that some want to spread about migration,” Vitorino said recently.

No one in power appears to have ask the Citizens of those european countries what they think about it. Just like our p.o.s. trudeau didn’t bother to ask any of us. When the EU collapses on itself there will be economic chaos but after the cloud settles at least that commie outfit will be gone.
Sustainable development, the new buzz word after new world order, read the UN’s agenda 21 and agenda 30 and realize how badly the international swamp and the banister are and have been screwing us over for ever.
