IAHF List: See the article below about the UN's plans to regulate the internet in order to suppress opposition to globalization. It speaks for itself. Draw your own conclusions. Having attended two UN Codex meetings of the Committee on Nutrition in Germany before being kicked off the US Delegation prior to the meeting in Berlin in 2000 and prior to being banned from future participation by the German Government for shooting unauthorized video footage inside the Codex CCNFSDU meeting in Berlin in '98 (til they forced me to shut my camcorder off), I do not get a good feeling at all about what I just read in the article below....
We need to get the USA out of the UN and out of the WTO. Just say NO to globalization in whatever country you live in. Congressman Paul will be reintroducing HR 1146, perhaps under a new bill number, to get us out of the UN and he needs support. Tell your congressmen and senators. He is also trying to get us out of the WTO.
We must all unite against the UN, WTO and CODEX. Just say NOT to Eugenics.... If you'd like to see the video footage I shot inside the '98 Codex meeting in Berlin (til they forced me to shut my camcorder off) Please go to http://www.iahf.com/iahf_media.html There you will find 4 interesting media clips which got me kicked off the US Codex Delegation and which caused me to have death threats for pushing for congressional oversight on this issue. The hearing that I pushed for for 5 years was whitewashed on March 20, 2001.

UN to Make Internet a Global 'Common Heritage'?
by William Norman Grigg
March 7, 2005
This November, the UN will convene a "World Summit on the Information Society" in Tunis. In Tunisia, reported a February 21 Reuters dispatch, "global control of the world wide web may be decided."
At present, "the most recognizable Internet governance body is a California-based non-profit company, the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)," continued the report. "But developing countries want an international body, such as the UNís International Telecommunications Union (ITU), to have control over governance ó from distributing Web site domains to fighting spam." According to Nitin Desai, chairman of a UN working group on the Internet created in December 2003, "There is an issue that is out there that needs to be resolved."
The draft "Declaration of Principles" for the Tunis Summit calls for the creation of "a people-centered, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society Ö premised on the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations...." Under that vision, the Internet ó rather than being a market-oriented entity controlled by no political body ó would be used "to promote the development goals of the Millennium Declaration," particularly "the right to development, as enshrined in the Vienna Declaration...." That "right" refers to the desire of the UN to redistribute wealth and technology from the U.S. and other prosperous nations to the kleptocratic governments of the "developing world."
Furthermore, the draft declaration pointedly invokes "Article 29 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights," which states that "everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of their personality is possible, and that, in the exercise of their rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law.... These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations." In plainer language, the UN seeks the power to suppress any use of the Internet and other information technology to criticize the world body or impede its designs for global governance.
The UNís proposed Law of the Sea Treaty would designate the oceans a UN-administered "common heritage of mankind." In similar fashion, the Tunis Summit would claim cyberspace as a UN-regulated "common heritage."
