Wise Up Journal

The current Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen’s speech below comes from the United Nations website. The speech addresses the UN on Ireland’s commitment to funding depopulation around the world, especially in developing countries. Mr Cowen points out Ireland’s relevant situation of our dying population, thanks to government funded education/propaganda and organizations, when he boasts, “couples in Ireland are controlling their fertility” and “the Irish fertility rate has been below replacement level since 1991.”
PERMANENT MISSION OF IRELAND TO THE UNITED NATIONS
ADDRESS BY MR BRIAN COWEN T.D. MINISTER FOR HEALTH AND CHILDREN IRELAND TO:
The Special Session of the General Assembly for the Review and Appraisal of the Implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development at United Nations Headquarters
30 June, 1999
“I would also like to pay tribute to Dr Sadik, who contributed so much to the Cairo Programme of Action and to the five-year review process.
This Special Session is the conclusion of that process, a process that has focused attention on what we in the international community have achieved in population and development since Cairo. It also allows us, indeed forces us, to take stock of the challenges still remaining.
At the outset I would like to share with you some of the pertinent changes which have taken place in Ireland in recent years. The major change relates to the sharp decline in the Irish birth rate which indicates that couples in Ireland are controlling their fertility to a much greater extent. The birth rate fell from 2 1.8 births per 1000 in 1980 to*1 3.5 in 1998. In 1995 the fertility rate was 1.84 which is below the population replacement level of 2.1. The Irish fertility rate has been below replacement level since 1991.
Since Cairo in 1994, policy on family planning has been reviewed and new programmes developed and implemented.
Persons in the lower socio- economic groups are entitled to family planning services free of charge from their family doctor. Non-Governmental organisations play an important role in the
provision of reproductive health services and work closely with the statutory authorities in doing so.
In relation to adolescent health a schools-based relationships and sexuality education programme has been developed.
[…] reducing the extent of abortion throughout the world.
Improved health education, access to family planning services and contraception are essential in order to bring that about.
Cairo was one of the great UN Conferences of the past decade. It set specific goals and targets for the entire international community[…]
Ireland is strongly of the view that the role of the United Nations is indispensable in the achievement of the agreed international development goals and affirms its full commitment to the UN role in international development cooperation.
Both bilateral donors and multilateral agencies – the UNFPA in particular – have ensured that improved health and family planning services are now available to many in the developing world.
Formidable challenges remain however. While population growth rates have fallen, and fallen steeply in many countries there are very high fertility rates in many of the poorest countries.
15% of the Irish Aid budget within our priority countries in sub-Saharan Africa is spent on the health sector, including an important reproductive health component in many of our projects.
The support of the entire international community is crucial to ensuring that the agreement reached at Cairo five years ago represents more than just good intentions. The commitments made at Cairo cannot be fulfilled without an adequate and assured level of funding for population activities.
Ireland’s overseas development assistance has enjoyed several years of sustained growth and will continue to do so. The Irish Government is fully committed to the UN target to 0.7% of GNP for ODA. Our spending on health care, including reproductive health care, will continue to remain a high priority for the Irish Aid programme.
Ireland’s strong support for the leading role of the UN Population Fund is underlined by our steadily increasing voluntary contributions to that organisation, as well as through our membership of the UNFPA’s Executive Board.
In addition to our regular contribution to the work of the UNFPA last year, Ireland was pleased to make an additional voluntary contribution specifically earmarked for the Cairo review process. This is an acknowledgement of Ireland’s support for the international consensus on population issues.
In conclusion I wish to confirm the Irish Government’s commitment to the ongoing implementation of the programme of action which will enable us to cope with the challenge which is confronting the global community in the approaching century.”
To solve poverty, global warming and any other global problem the elite and the elite’s managers at the UN along with their lower followers have decided decades ago that humanity is the enemy and the solution to all our problems is less humans.

When these problems intensify, with a lot of help from the top, will the public also come to the same conclusion? Have the ordinary people already come to the conclusion that there are too many us? If they don’t there are numerous organisations that will “educate” them.

In the west family is not as important as it was before, sperm rates have dropped by 75% (never mentioned as a problem by the UN or what is causing it), cancer rates have exploded, and birth rates have dropped “below replacement levels”. In other parts of the world depopulation is taking place at an even faster rate due to legal systems that prohibit more than one child (potentially coming to the west thanks to Global Warming fear), AIDS and false food shortages, and the 21st century war death count of innocent people is in the millions with more wars looming. Good news to some.
“This is a terrible thing to say. In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”
