Public polls have your voice: citizensaustralia.weebly.com I`ve seen this happen for years, but I didn`t know what agreement we need to make is to share this with everyone, then get rid of all the political parties and start over with a government that works for us and not for themselves and their own pockets. By not giving us any voice on these decisions, by providing for a referendum, governments have bypassed the Australian Commonwealth Constitution. All the governments that have signed these treaties are guilty of treason. Treason is committed by many names, including international treaties, conventions, or, in this case, declaration, The Lima Declaration. It seems that Australia is no longer “advanced” and is a slave to the UN, the EU and the foreign minister who, on our behalf, has signed treaties such as the Lima agreements, etc. What a shame! I have known about the Lima agreement since Whitlam`s election. And every government since Whitlam has slowly and gently eroded our rights. The fact is, you almost have to have a license to breathe. It is no longer a free country. It`s not true.
The Lima Declaration is a non-binding declaration, it is not an agreement or a treaty that requires action. The agreement does not mention what happens to Australians who lose their jobs, factories or farms because of these unfair and illegal agreements. We`ve become redundant. I have known about the Lima agreement since Whitlam`s election. And every government since Whitlam has slowly and gently eroded our rights. The fact is, you almost have to have a license to breathe. It is no longer a free country. The DLP believes that the initial target of a 30% reduction in Australian production was far too high and that there were better ways to help developing countries. What has been confirmed in the years marked by the signing of the Lima Declaration by the ALP is that the 30% target has actually exploded, with current estimates exceeding 90%. The Lima conference also left unanswered a number of difficult questions, including how to improve climate finance. The 2009 Copenhagen Accord promised to unlock $100 billion a year to help developing countries cope with climate change.
There is still no idea if and how the world will get there. This is worrying, especially for the poorest countries. In 1975, the ALP government of Gough Whitlam signed Australia without public consultation in the United Nations-inspired Lima Declaration, which forced Australia to reduce its production capacity by about 30% and commit to importing this amount from other privileged countries. Australia is a signatory to the Lima Declaration, as are many other GATT agreements.
