"We're All Sri Lankan Farmers Now" by James Corbett - (an important read)

Recommended Posts

EXCERPT:  ...your nightmare future as serfs on the neofeudal plantation! The governments will artificially restrict supplies of basic goods in the name of appeasing the weather gods, collapse the economy on purpose, and then use that collapse as a pretext for implementing even more stringent technocratic controls on their tax cattle.



We're All Sri Lankan Farmers Now

by James Corbett
July 23, 2022

Last week I wrote about how "We're All Dutch Farmers Now." As you'll recall from that editorial, there is a battle taking place right now between farmers in the Netherlands and the technocrats in their government who are seeking to put them out of work and close up their farms in the name of the globalists' grand 2030 Agenda. And, as you'll also recall, I warned that no matter where you are on the globe or what your position in society is, this Great Reset nightmare will be coming for you and your livelihood next.

Recent events in various countries have only served to underline that point in spades.

Take Ireland, for example. The Irish Times reports that, in order for the country to "meet the Paris Agreement goals on a globally equitable basis," Irish farmers will have to make drastic cuts to their greenhouse emissions, including "A cut of more than 40 per cent in methane by 2030." Exactly as in the Netherlands, these types of drastic and arbitrary cuts would be a disaster for the average farmer and could drive many of the nation's small farms out of business. Despite the best efforts of Ireland's establishment media—like the aforementioned Irish Times or online outlets like—to browbeat the Irish public into turning agains the farmers, a growing protest movement in the country points to the possibility that Ireland will be yet another front in the Global War for Independence that I wrote about last week.

Or take Sri Lanka. As you have no doubt seen in the establishment news media, Sri Lanka has descended into chaos in recent weeks, with the economy completely collapsing and the president fleeing the country amid fiery protests.

But you probably have not seen the real reasons for that collapse in the establishment news media and you're probably not going to. In truth, the Sri Lankan situation falls very much in line with the global insurrection which the Dutch farmer protests are leading. And the steps that the Sri Lankan government are now rolling out to further control their population in the name of restoring order to the country offer important insights about where the globalist agenda is going from here.

Today, let's examine the roots of the Sri Lankan crisis and explore how that crisis affects us all.




For those not following events in the island nation, the announcement of the complete collapse of Sri Lanka's economy last month might have been surprising. And, if you rely on the MSM for your news and information, the images of chaos coming out of the country—with tens of thousands taking to the streets and even storming the prime minister's office—would doubtless have generated more questions than answers.

What's happening over there? How did this start? Why are the people so angry at their government? And what's being done about it?

So, how do the establishment lapdog media outlets explain this "sudden" turn of events? Let's turn to the BBC for a typically mendacious example. In "Sri Lanka's tea farmers struggling to survive" the Big Brother Corporation's Sri Lankan correspondent, Secunder Kermani, correctly identifies tea as the nation's largest export, correctly points out that "Most of Sri Lanka's tea is grown by smaller farmers," and correctly reports that those small farmers are "still reeling from the impact of a sudden, poorly thought-out government decision to ban chemical fertilizer last year." It then lies about the roots of that fertilizer ban, saying that it was "ordered to try to protect the country's dwindling foreign reserves."

As Paul Homewood over at the Not A Lot of People Know About That blog points out:

The ban had nothing at all to do with 'protecting foreign reserves.' Nor is the [Sri Lankan] tea industry being hit by the 'economic crisis.' The ban was a deliberate policy decision by the President, as part of his climate change agenda.

Of course, given that this inconvenient truth is not the right kind of inconvenient "truth" (the kind that Al Gore makes fearmongering and factually inaccurate documentaries about), the usual flock of "fact checkers" have descended on the story to run cover for their globalist paymasters. For one example of this, see's "Did ESG really topple the government of Sri Lanka?" This article attempts to argue that a commitment to the technocrat's beloved Environmental, Social, and Governance scam "most assuredly did not collapse a national government," but in the end it's forced to admit that the fertilizer ban was the trigger for the collapse and that that ban was forced on the country by the ESG pushers. Specifically, as the aforementioned fact check concedes, the ban was put in place in order to "renegotiate some of its IMF and World Bank financial obligations in exchange for its excellent emissions rating."

In other words, the debt-trap mafia made Sri Lanka a deal it couldn't refuse: join our economic suicide pact or we'll shut off your money. Accordingly, Sri Lanka signed on to the suicide pact. The country's disgraced ex-President even made a speech at last year's COP26 conference in Glasgow bragging about the country's commitment to the death cult's carbon eugenics agenda. And now the country is in chaos.

So how did we really get here? And where is this green agenda really taking us?




To the surprise of none of my regular readers, you will find a World Economic Forum minion at the heart of this story.

In this case, Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe (who is listed as an "agenda contributor" on the World Economic Forum website), penned an op-ed for the WEF in 2018 explaining "how I will make my country rich by 2025." Touting his World Bank-supported "Vision 2025" economic policy, he bragged that the smorgasbord of globalist-approved policies he was going to implement—from green energy projects to public-private partnerships to regional free trade agreements—was going to create a "social market economy that delivers economic dividends to all."

Well, that didn't work out very well, now did it? How embarrassing for the prime minister and everyone associated with him, hey?

At least Davos Man has the good sense to be retroactively ashamed by their association with this disaster. The World Economic Forum, for its part, has taken the embarrassing 2018 op-ed down from its website. But you can still read about the bold plan to turn Sri Lanka into an economic powerhouse by 2025 on the WayBack archive of the page. (Hey, there's still three years left!)

But, incredibly, this whole debacle has not derailed Wickremesinghe's political career. On the contrary. It has furthered it! He was just elected president of the country ("despite his unpopularity with the public" as the BBC puts it with their characteristic gift for understatement).

So what is he going to do to solve the crisis that he helped initiate? Why, implement the World Economic Forum's dream of Digital ID tyranny, of course!

Specifically, Wickremesinghe's government has decided to restore order to the country by implementing a "fuel rationing" scheme that relies on QR codes and digital surveillance. Under the new carbon eugenics regime, each slave of the new technocratic prison state will be allowed to associate one vehicle identification number with their National Identity Card number. They will then be assigned a QR code that will have to be scanned to allow the peasants to obtain the privilege of buying fuel . . . so long as it is their assigned day to purchase gas, that is. The new system will assign people days on which they will be allowed to buy fuel depending on the last digit of their license plate.

As Sri Lanka's Minister of Power and Energy said in a tweet bragging about the implementation of the scheme: "Some fuel stations did not adopt, some Individuals manipulated, falsified & did not want this implemented [sic]. However It will be enforced islandwide."

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to your nightmare future as serfs on the neofeudal plantation! The governments will artificially restrict supplies of basic goods in the name of appeasing the weather gods, collapse the economy on purpose, and then use that collapse as a pretext for implementing even more stringent technocratic controls on their tax cattle.

Problem. Reaction. Solution.

So how does what's going on in Sri Lanka affect all of us worldwide? And what can we do about it?




At this point it would take a special kind of willful ignorance to deny the connection between all of these events. Who could look at the restrictions and cuts being implemented in country after country after country, from the Netherlands to Ireland to Poland to Italy to Canada to Argentina to Sri Lanka and think that it's all just an amazing coinkydink.

No. By this point, it is self-evident to even the sleepiest of the normies that the destruction of the agricultural sector in country after country is part of a coordinated global agenda.

The strange thing is that every article by every outlet in every country cites a different agreement, pledge, pact, commitment or piece of legislation as the underlying reason for these cuts.

The Irish Times, for example, reports that Ireland's emission cuts are being implemented in order to fulfill the nation's Paris Agreement commitments. says the cuts come at the behest of the European Union, which will levy fines on countries that fail to reach emission reduction requirements. RTE cites the Irish government's own climate action plan as the reason for the cuts.

In fact, there is an increasingly complex web of agreements, commitments and treaties that are forcing these same policies on country after country. Do you know about the Colombo Declaration on Sustainable Nitrogen Management, for example? Or the Global Methane Pledge? For that matter, do you know precisely what the Paris Agreement actually mandates? Or the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development? Or what obligations your own country cites when it started implementing its own emissions cuts?

Did you know that the World Economic Forum signed a "strategic partnership framework" with the United Nations in 2019 to "accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development"? Or that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation pledged $315 million to the CGIAR global agriculture research partnership (a group my regular readers will be familiar with) to address the "[climate] adaptation needs of smallholder farmers" by funding "early warning systems for tracking the climate-accelerated spread of crop and livestock diseases and digital services that connect farmers with a wide range of supports more efficiently"?

Probably not. But the point here is that there is not one easily identifiable treaty under one identifiable organization that is running this agenda. That would be too obvious and offer too easy a target for the disparate freedom movements kicking up in country after country to go after. Instead, a complex web of control is being woven around nation after nation by a network of foundations, non-governmental bodies and globalist bodies and not one person in a thousand could name all of these organizations, treaties, agreements and commitments or explain how they all fit together to produce the collapse of Sri Lanka or the protests in Holland.

I am not exaggerating when I say this is a Global War for Independence that is taking shape right now. I am 100% serious. But for the most part (my switched-on, clued-in readers excepted, of course), the public is just starting to realize that they are engaged in a war at all. That puts them very much behind the 8-ball as they begin to discover that they are the victims of an agenda that has been decades in the making and is already nearing the mysteriously omnipresent 2030 goal.

Thankfully, though, the people are beginning to wake up to the gravity of the situation, and every day more people are joining the global uprising.

In addition to the Dutch solidarity protests by German farmers and Italian farmers and Polish farmers that I documented last week, there are now reports coming in of solidarity protests in Spain and Panama and Argentina, with a nationwide protest in Canada to "support the Dutch Farmers and the international fight for freedom" taking place as I write these words.

The point is, this isn't about Dutch farmers. Or Sri Lankan farmers. Or Argentinian farmers. Or Irish farmers. Or Canadian truckers. Or any other isolated group you could imagine. This is about free humanity collectively recognizing the real nature of the struggle that they are engaged in and coming together to fight that battle. Holland and Sri Lanka are only the canaries in the coal mine that allow us to see what will happen to all of us when we are finally caught in the globalist web.

Let me state this once again: a worldwide revolt against the globalist technocrats is happening right now. More and more people are joining the ranks of this revolt every day. Those who are not standing with the farmers who find themselves on the front line of this revolt will almost certainly regret their inaction in the future when this global Agenda for Sustainable Enslavement comes for them.

The bare truth reveals itself more clearly than ever: We are all Sri Lankan farmers now.

Thousands of protesters outraged by the deteriorating material conditions of the nation’s economic meltdown have stormed the presidential palace of Sri Lanka’s President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, and I guarantee you the aerial footage as they poured into the building en masse has made every government leader and plutocrat a little uncomfortable today.

Just look at that. Look at all those people flooding in there. That is some truly awe-inspiring power...

...If you’ve ever wondered why so much energy goes into keeping everyone propagandized in our society, this is why. If you’ve ever wondered why our rulers work so hard to keep us divided against each other, this is why. If you’ve ever wondered why we’re always being instructed to take our grievances to the voting booth even though we learn in election after election that it never changes the things that most desperately need to change, this is why.

UN, World Economic Forum Behind Global 'War On Farmers': Experts

Authored by Alex Neuman via The Epoch Times,

The escalating regulatory attack on agricultural producers from Holland and the United States to Sri Lanka and beyond is closely tied to the United Nations’ “Agenda 2030” Sustainable Development Goals and the U.N.’s partners at the World Economic Forum (WEF), numerous experts told The Epoch Times.



Indeed, several of the U.N.’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are directly implicated in policies that are squeezing farmers, ranchers, and food supplies around the world.

High-level Chinese Communist Party (CCP) members within the U.N. system helped create the SDGs and are currently helping lead the organization’s implementation of the global plan, The Epoch Times has previously documented.

If left unchecked, multiple experts said, the U.N.-backed sustainability policies on agriculture and food production would lead to economic devastation, shortages of critical goods, widespread famine, and a dramatic loss of individual freedoms.

Already, millions of people worldwide are facing dangerous food shortages, and officials around the world say those are set to get worse as the year goes on.

There is an agenda behind it all, experts told The Epoch Times.

Even private land ownership is in the crosshairs, as global food production and the world economy are transformed to meet the global sustainability goals, U.N. documents reviewed by The Epoch Times show.

As explained by the U.N. on its SDG website, the goals adopted in 2015 “build on decades of work by countries and the U.N.”

One of the earliest meetings defining the “sustainability” agenda was the U.N. Conference on Human Settlements known as Habitat I, which adopted the Vancouver Declaration.

The agreement stated that “land cannot be treated as an ordinary asset controlled by individuals” and that private land ownership is “a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.”

“Public control of land use is therefore indispensable,” the U.N. declaration said, a prelude to the World Economic Forum’s now infamous “prediction” that by 2030, “you’ll own nothing.”

Numerous U.N. agencies and officials have outlined their vision of “sustainability” since then, including calls for drastic restrictions on energy, meat consumption, travel, living space, and material prosperity.

Experts interviewed by The Epoch Times say that some of the world’s wealthiest and most powerful corporate leaders are working with communists in China and elsewhere in an effort to centralize control over food production and crush independent farmers and ranchers.

According to critics of the policies, though, the goal isn’t to preserve the environment or fight climate change at all. Instead, the experts warn that the “sustainability” narrative and the other justifications are a tool to gain control over food, agriculture, and people.

“The end goal of these efforts is to reduce sovereignty on both individual nations and people,” said Craig Rucker, president of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a public policy organization specializing in environmental and development issues.

“The intent for those pushing this agenda is not to save the planet, as they purport, but to increase control over people,” he told The Epoch Times, adding that the goal is to centralize power at the national and even international level.

UN Sustainable Development Goals—Agenda 2030 

The U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, often referred to as Agenda 2030, were adopted in 2015 by the organization and its member states as a guide to “transforming our world.” Hailed as a “master plan for humanity” and a global “declaration of interdependence” by top U.N. officials, the 17 goals include 169 targets involving every facet of the economy and life.

“All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan,” declares the preamble to the document, repeatedly noting that “no one will be left behind.”

Among other elements, the U.N. plan calls for national and international wealth redistribution in Goal 10, as well as “fundamental changes in the way that our societies produce and consume goods and services.”

Using government to transform all economic activity is a critical part of the SDGs, with Goal 12 demanding “sustainable consumption and production patterns.”

Among the specific targets outlined in Goal 12 are several directly linked to agricultural policies that undermine food production. These include “sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources.”

Perhaps more importantly, the document demands “environmentally sound management of chemicals and all wastes throughout their life cycle, in accordance with agreed international frameworks.”

As a result, people and especially farmers must “significantly reduce their release to air, water, and soil in order to minimize their adverse impacts on human health and the environment.”

Other SDGs that are directly tied to what critics have called the “war on farmers” include Goal 14, which addresses “marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including … nutrient pollution.” The U.N. regularly describes agriculture and food production as a threat to the ocean.

The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), led by former CCP Vice Minister of Agriculture and Rural Affairs Qu Dongyu, is helping to lead the charge.

In its 2014 report “Building a Common Vision for Sustainable Food and Agriculture: Principles and Approaches,” the U.N. agency calls for drastic restrictions on the use of fertilizers, pesticides, emissions, and water in the agricultural sector.

As an example of how agriculture must be reformed to be considered sustainable by the U.N., the FAO report declares that “excessive use of nitrogen fertilizer is a major cause of water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.”

The Rome-based FAO didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Another of the 17 SDGs with a direct impact on agriculture and food production is Goal 2, with its calls for “sustainable agriculture” and “sustainable food production.”

Goal 6, meanwhile, calls for “sustainable management of water,” which includes various targets involving agricultural water use and runoff.

Because U.N. leaders see agriculture and food production as key contributors to what they call manmade climate change, Goal 13 is important, too. It calls for governments to “integrate climate change measures into national policies, strategies, and planning.”

Goal 15, which deals with sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, also has multiple targets that affect agriculture and food production.

All over the world, national and regional governments are working with U.N. agencies to implement these sustainability goals in agriculture and other sectors.

For instance, responding to U.N. biodiversity agreements, the European Union has enacted various U.N.-backed biodiversity programs such as Natura 2000 and the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030, which have been cited by the Dutch government and others in their agricultural policies.

The U.N. also boasts publicly about its role in imposing the SDGs in Sri Lanka and other nations suffering from food shortages and economic calamities linked to the very same global sustainability programs.

Around the world, almost every national government says it’s incorporating the SDGs into its own laws and regulations.

World Economic Forum ‘Partnership’ 

Alongside the U.N. are various “stakeholders” that are critical to implementing sustainable development policies through “public-private partnerships.”

At the heart of that effort is the WEF, which since 2020 has been pushing a total transformation of society known as the “Great Reset.” In 2019, the WEF signed a “strategic partnership” with the U.N. to advance Agenda 2030 within the global business community.


The official agreement defined “areas of cooperation to deepen institutional engagement and jointly accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.”

Many of the key officials behind Agenda 2030, including top U.N. leaders such as current Secretary-General António Guterres—a self-proclaimed socialist—have also been working with the WEF for decades.

Meanwhile, the WEF has been explicit with its goals. It recently launched a “Food Action Alliance” (FAA) that acknowledges on its website that Agenda 2030 “informs the ambition of the FAA to provide an enduring and long-term platform for multi-stakeholder action on food systems to meet the SDGs.”

Alongside the U.N.’s “Food Systems Summit” in September 2021, the WEF’s FAA released a report outlining its own “leadership agenda for multi-stakeholder collaboration to transform food systems.”

Among other elements, the document summarizes the FAA’s insights on “supporting transformative food system partnerships, and its value proposition beyond the UN Food Systems Summit 2021 towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”

The WEF’s public concern with transforming agriculture and the food supply goes back over a decade, at least.

In partnership with various companies, the WEF released a 2010 report outlining a “new vision for agriculture” that included a “roadmap for stakeholders.” Many of the world’s largest food companies that dominate the market and own countless popular brands are involved.

The WEF’s website is packed with information purporting to justify a total transformation of the food supply by “stakeholders.”

“As global food systems become increasingly interconnected, effective coordination among a diverse set of stakeholders will be required,” WEF says on its “Strategic Intelligence” platform, frequently citing the FAO as its source.

“The potential to craft new, systemic approaches to food systems that include a diverse array of stakeholders presents opportunities to help sustainably feed the world well into the future.”

The organization’s frequent references to “stakeholders” refers to governments, companies, and so-called nongovernmental organizations that are often funded by those same companies and governments. They are all working together on the issue.

For instance, the WEF boasts that it has brought corporate giants such as Coca-Cola and Unilever into the fold toward promoting a “more sustainable future.”

The Rockefeller Foundation, which recently released a report on how to “Reset the Table” and “Transform the U.S. Food System,” is also a key player.

The WEF’s “Food Innovation Hubs” around the world are set to be a major part of this global transformation.

Speaking to the World Economic Forum on “transforming food systems and land use” at last year’s Davos Agenda Week, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced that the Netherlands would host the “Global Coordinating Secretariat of the World Economic Food Innovation Hubs.”

The secretariat, he said, “will connect all other Food Innovation Hubs” in order to facilitate creating “the partnerships we need.”

Neither the WEF nor the Rockefeller Foundation responded to requests for comment on their role in Agenda 2030 and on the agricultural policies being pursued around the world.

Other organizations and entities involved in the push include powerful tax-exempt foundations such as the Gates Foundation, the EU-style regional governments proliferating around the world, and various groups funded by them.

Squeezing Farmers—and the Food Supply 

All over the globe, U.N. SDG-aligned government policies are squeezing farmers—especially smaller, independent producers unable to absorb the added costs of added regulation and control.

Celebrating U.N. sustainability ideas, recently ousted Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa announced at the U.N. COP26 climate summit in 2021 that his government was banning chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
