Etheridge Shire Council trying to nominate shire with United Nations for back door heritage listing

Geo-park plan rings alarm bells for North Qld graziers

A plan to declare the entire Etheridge Shire in Far North Queensland as a ‘global geo-park’ is ringing alarm bells for local graziers, AgForce said today.

AgForce Northern President Russell Lethbridge, who lives in the Etheridge Shire, said cattle production was the predominant industry in the shire and graziers wanted to know how a geo-park declaration would impact on their businesses.

Primary producers in Etheridge Shire are suspicious of a plan to nominate the shire for a possible UN world heritage listing. Mayor Warren Devlin(front), Cr’s Norm Garsden; Troy Barnes; Will Attwood reportedly support the application.

“The Etheridge Shire Council has announced they will seek a geo-park registration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), but haven’t properly explained what it all means and how it will affect development opportunities,” he said.

“Graziers have seen how the Queensland Government have used UNESCO as a justification for tougher vegetation management restrictions, so are understandably suspicious about a plan to declare a UNESCO ‘Global Geopark’ over an area of some 40,000 square kilometres.

“AgForce has been inundated with calls from Far North graziers who want to know how a geo-park registration would impact on what they can and can’t do on their land, while there are also concerns about how this will affect the Gilbert River irrigated agricultural precinct.

“This issue is generating a lot of heat and has united graziers in the Etheridge Shire like no other issue I’ve seen before, so it is important the council and proponents of the geopark explain the motivation behind the proposal.

” Mr Lethbridge said AgForce had responded to the groundswell of concern by organising a meeting at the Georgetown Town Hall from 2pm on Friday 16th June to discuss the geo-park proposal.

“All landholders in the Etheridge Shire are invited to attend to tell us their views about the geo-park proposal, and to ask questions of council representatives,” he said.

“Graziers currently have more questions than answers and the meeting is an opportunity for everyone to learn more about the proposal and for proponents to outline their case.

“AgForce is committed to getting all the information to landholders so they can better understand the issue and make an informed decision based on all the facts.”

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. The best thing the local people in Etheridge region can do vote the useless, un-Australian councillors out of office and bring the area back under the control of the people.. It has been done elsewhere in Australia and the Etheridge region is no exception and needs to get their Shire back.


  2. I am highly suspicious if this plan, the United Nations have their own agenda that is usually a bad move for the general population, l wouldn’t even consider this move, be very wary!


  3. If you want to be a part of the UNITED NATIONS without researching just what it really is, than get ready to lose everything you ever worked for… The UN has agenda’s and they are not there to serve your interests or any Australians interest…. The UN is a criminal entity evidenced by the very fraudulent paperwork they rely on. It is a foreign private corporate land grab that will destroy farming, like its destroyed all other industry, on this land for its needs to mine the lands of Australia in order to enrich foreign interests and at the expense of the Australian people. Councils and government are foreign UNITED NATION Agents! and so are the Queensland Police!. The Governments of Australia and its states are all foreign registered entities with names similar to the original states of Australia. Citizens of the Commonwealth of Australia are now legally foreign citizens of the foreign “District of Columbia” in a legal standing and the people that attempt to do something about this massive fraud are passed off as lunatics. The conspiracy is not a theory! its real and Australians better wake up or is it now too late? …. The masterminds behind the UNITED NATIONS laugh at the stupidity of the Australian idiots…

    What sort of a fool assumes that he owns his land when he must ask a foreign registered council for permission to do anything on his own land??? unless he registered it to a foreign entity???

  4. Dear Graziers of Up There,

    Who owns the land? If you own your properties, you control what happens on your properties. If the Etheridge Shire Council/Corporation own the land, they can register it anywhere they like and they can tell you what to do on their property. Can’t you see the psycho tactics they are using? The very word, “landholder”, has got to give you a clue. They want you to think you are a “tenant”… a “holder” (“tenir” means “to hold”) not an owner. You are being lied to. Anyone who tries to come onto your land without your permission/consent is trespassing. Does AgForce know what they’re doing? Are they telling the Etheridge Shire Council/Corporation to rack off?

    Yours sincerely,
    John Wilson.


  5. WHY?? Haven’t we voluntarily given enough of our country to the control of the UN already 40% of Tasmania, many of our great parks in NSW where there is NO funding for the maintenance and upkeep of them etc. Queenslanders need to read what they have lost already along with the sneaky changes in Australia’s Democratic Constitution to suit the Labor Party’s agendas.


  6. Read the Agenda 21/30 of the New World Order, aka UN.It relates exactly what is happening, and will happen..Sovereignty will become global, and we will have no say.All farmers, and residents of Etheridge need to unite and fight this…it will be the thin edge of the wedge if you don’t.Get rid of the Council for a start…then FIGHT! Good luck.
