Astroturfing the way for the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Chapter 1

[N.b. If for some reason you missed our introduction, click here to read]

Introducing Gail Bradbrook, professional activist

In order to understand an organisation or entity, one must first come to an understanding of its founders. Dr Gail Marie Bradbrook, along with Julian ‘Roger’ Hallam, appear to be the two primary instigators of the Extinction Rebellion (XR) movement.

The following is an investigation into Bradbrook, her background, professional associations, ideology and influences.

Internet Institute conference, 12/4/04, entitled ‘Whose Responsibility is Digital Inclusion?’. [Link}
Gail’s profile on citizensonline.org.uk, now taken down as of late 2018.

Gail and the other budding public figures involved in XR have chosen to enter the public eye by asking millions of people to stand with them in a campaign of non-violent civil disobedience, aimed at making profound changes to an economic and political system which millions of people rely on to stay warm, and obtain basic things like food and water. Due to the serious nature of the changes they are proposing (albeit without mentioning that they’re all taken straight from the UN’s ‘Sustainable Development Goals’), they should welcome criticism and scrutiny of their activities. If they are sincere, they should demonstrate integrity, and not dismiss dissenting voices, but instead engage openly with people who question their motives and stated objectives.

The Mother of Extinction

Often called “the Mother” by members of Extinction Rebellion, Gail is a molecular biophysicist by training, though she hasn’t worked in that capacity for quite some time. Not long after finishing her post-doctoral research into ‘protein saccharide interactions’, she became a consultant for several ‘political charities’ and has, for the past 18 years worked exclusively as a professional campaigner – a role which, during a talk at Off-Grid Festival, she admits is “mostly about securing your own pay-check.

Gail epitomises the new generation of ‘professional activists’, having positioned herself at the epicentre of the revolving door between big business, government bureaucracies and establishment-friendly NGOs, campaign groups and charitable organisations, all of which increasingly function as the public face of international corporate and financial power.

Acting through proxy organisations permits these forces to obscure the fact that government policies are being swayed by corporate entities that fund entire networks of charities and non-governmental organisations to interact with government on their behalf. NGOs and charities tend to be seen as more caring and less corrupt than their corporate sponsors; and are presented as such in the media, even when their staff and financials reveal them to be entirely monetarily dependent on the corporate entities and supranational bureaucracies that they covertly campaign on behalf of. There appears to be no remedy or legal redress we can use to reveal the true nature of these NGOs and charities, or hold them to even the most basic ethical and moral standards.

As described in our introduction, corporate entities have previously paid firms such as Stratfor to disrupt and neutralise inconvenient campaign groups. It would seem that in recent years they’ve increasingly taken to the expedient of simply funding the ‘right ones’ into existence in the first place, and then nudging less amenable competitors out from (as they no doubt see it) the ‘marketplace’ of causes. Worse still, these ostensibly ‘independent’ NGOs, charities and professional ‘campaign groups’ are increasingly tasked with stewarding government policy and objectives.

It is unclear precisely when, or more importantly how Gail transitioned from molecular biophysicist to collecting causes like a declining civilisation accumulates laws; but what we do know is that for the past two decades, she has been a favoured ‘activist’ of the British State, at least when it comes to their ‘digital inclusion’ and ‘universal internet access’ agendas. These euphemisms today refer to the 5G / Internet of Things roll-out; aimed at making sure that absolutely everybody, without exception, gets plugged-in to the emerging smart-grid, which incorporates both military hardware – used for crowd control, as well as psychological operations with next-generation mind-control, surveillance and communications systems. In other words, a full-spectrum cybernetic control apparatus which “if fully exploited could make Orwell’s 1984 seem like a benevolent utopia” (-William Burroughs, “Limits of Control“).

The 5G network is primary to this apparatus, an essential component for the ‘scientific management’ global society; as envisioned and now being assembled all around us by an international oligarchy of techno-industrial and financial elites – the very same people who stand behind the UN, and are positioned to become its beneficiaries.

As well as having the ear of government, many of the directors and trustees of Gail’s Citizens Online charity just so happen to be people whose companies stand to make an absolute killing from the 5G roll-out – which is covertly promoted by Extinction Rebellion, due to its coming under the auspices of the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 (the current rebranding of Agenda 21), which is most often referred to with deceptive simplicity, as ‘Sustainable Development’ [SD]. Indeed, the smart grid / 5G infrastructure roll-out and the United Nation’s ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDG) are entirely inseparable.

[SD] When you hear governments or NGOs use the phrase ‘Sustainable Development’, they do not simply mean development that is sustainable – they are, in fact, referring to a very specific series of policy documents, all of which were designed by the United Nations. Climate policies are one aspect of the UN’s SD goals.

Huawei: Accelerating Sustainable Development Goals through ICT (Information & Communications Technology). Note item 9: “Digital solutions for the SDGs could generate $2.1 trillion in new annual revenue for the ICT sector by 2030”.

“Government must enact legally-binding policy measures to reduce carbon emissions in the UK to zero by 2025 and take further action to remove the excess of atmospheric greenhouse gases.” – XR demands.

Extinction Rebellion’s demands (above) were in-fact taken straight from the objectives laid out by Hallam and Bradbrook in their Campaign Overview document of October of 2018, back when the pair were still calling themselves the “coordination group coordinators”.

Download the document, here.

We’re curious to know which “legally-binding policy measures” you had in mind, Gail? (And by the way, what kind of arrangement were you imagining where the “Government” is to be “work(ing) alongside the media”?)

There is only one policy framework to this effect, developed by the UN’s technocratic ‘global governance’ bureaucracy; and it involves establishing world-wide CO2 taxation – which we’re being told (by the corporate-industrial elite), is ‘necessary to save the planet.’

We’ll explore these topics more, and expose the treasonous and subversive activities of the UN and their vast networks of industry sponsored ‘change agents’ later on. For now, let us return to that spear-head of ‘Sustainable Development’, Dr Gail Bradbrook.

Much of Gail’s career seems to have been spent sat in air-conditioned corporate conference centres with the likes of John Varney, Chief Technology Officer of the BBC, and any number of government and industry talking heads. Here’s the guest list from a standard ’roundtable’ meeting, the kind which Gail has spent nearly two decades attending. The document begins, “On Monday 7th June 2004 the IPPR’s Digital Society team hosted a private roundtable seminar to discuss forthcoming reforms to central Government IT.” (Original)

Gail even had dinner at Number 10 Downing Street to ‘brainstorm on digital inclusion’.

Don’t know about you, but we tend to socially exclude ‘revolutionaries’ who previously worked 
for the Cabinet Office, and get invited around for dinner at the Prime Minister’s house…

The fact of the matter is, Dr Gail Bradbrook is one of the UK State’s go-to ‘experts’, chosen to give (the right kind of) evidence at various parliamentary hearings and committees (which we’ll get to). Her job also has her attending high-level private sector meetings where she frequently rubs shoulders with telecommunications oligarchs, international business moguls and the whole autocratic circular-jerkular of highly politicised ‘scientists’ and other ‘experts’ who are invariably presented to us in the media as impartial and unbiased, but who (in reality) float like a layer of congealed scum on the surface of the EU and UN gravy-boat [*].

[*] Gravy-boat: “it’s bigger, slower and you can help yourself as often as you like.” -Sir Greville McDonald, The New Statesman (TV Series).

Sustainable compliance and inclusive surveillance

Before she was engaged in (pre-approved) rabble rousing, or pretending to glue herself [*] to the Department of Energy Headquarters, Gail was more likely to be found attending meetings held under Chatham House Rules, sat alongside people like Anthony Walker, former communications officer for the American Chamber of Commerce, who previously worked for the European Commission’s PR firm Rowland Company (owned by Saatchi & Saatchi)

[*] Gail admits she only pretended to super-glue herself to the department of energy HQ, in an interview with Margaret Klein Salamon, the ‘fundraising director’ of XR and founder-director of the Climate Mobilization group. Salamon has written a book entitled ‘Leading the Public into Emergency Mode’ and describes herself as a ‘climate psychologist’.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Antony Walker “was responsible for providing PR and communications consultancy to the European Commission on environment, information society and social fund policy areas. I was also responsible for supporting DG[*] Environment’s Local Agenda 21 sustainable development initiative.” [*] DG refers to the EU’s Directorate-General for Environment.

As you’ll see, there’s a fine line between Agenda 21/ 2030, or ‘Sustainable Development’ as they like to call it, and the techno-corporate oligarchy behind the 5G roll-out. When Gail met him, Walker was CEO of the Broadband Stakeholder Group; and he remains deputy CEO of TechUK (the Trade & Industry Association of GCHQ and the wider ‘information technology industry’).

Here’s Walker promoting Greta Thunberg’s ‘School Climate Strike’:

Walker’s Broadband Stakeholder Group (BSG) recently published a report tellingly entitled ‘Lowering barriers to 5G deployment’, which makes ‘recommendations’ to industry, central government and local authorities. Seeing as how the BSG is comprised of all of the biggest telecommunications and mobile network providers, you can be sure that their ‘recommendations’ are going to be enshrined in policy by the central government. The BSG report even suggests a dedicated ‘task force’ to hunt down any non-complying local authorities and to make sure that they’re all keeping in line with the government’s desire for the UK to be a ‘5G leader’.

In the course of its 65 pages, the report mentions neither the mounting scientific evidence pointing to serious health implications of microwave exposure for both humans and animals, and especially those used by the 5G infrastructure, nor the multiple surveillance and privacy concerns.

Why? Because the scientists studying and raising awareness of the dangers of the millimetre and microwave radiation used by 5G, are simply the ‘wrong sort’ of scientists – meaning those without their biscuits in the gravy-boat.

They’re getting away with pushing 5G and military-grade ‘smart-grid’ surveillance hardware, by wrapping it up in platitudes about ‘Sustainable Development’ and claiming that we need these technologies for environmental monitoring. Everything from air-quality control to climate prediction and modelling (a quack science if ever there was one). What they fail to mention, is that these applications are secondary to the mass-surveillance and electronic warfare capabilities; and that 5G uses the same hardware (just re-branded) as is currently deployed by coalition forces in the Middle East as crowd control weaponry.

Inclusion = there is no escape!

The Orwellian ‘Digital Inclusion Unit’ (DIU), comprised of Gail, J. D. Fisher (the former Air Force officer who started Gail’s ‘CitizensOnline’ charity) and their whole cadre of industry-sponsored activists and academics, have previously suggested that they, as the DIU, be given powers to “influence the funding streams” of Local Authorities (already strapped for cash and struggling to provide front-line services, like housing and waste collection) as punishment for non-compliance with the central government’s Digital Inclusion Agenda. An agenda, largely written by NGOs and charities like Gail’s who’re funded by internet and mobile phone infrastructure providers.

No doubt similar penalties await any Local Authority who dares to resist the roll out of military-grade surveillance hardware and ‘crowd-control’ weaponry into the residential areas of their constituents.

“A ‘weapons grade’ phone technology (5G) being tested in Cornwall is sparking health concerns – after a spate of suicides at Bristol University.”

Astroturfing for Justice and Money

Professional activism also works in the inverse: lobbying and campaigning within the ‘corporate world’ on behalf of governments and supranational bureaucracies. Gail’s career effortlessly transitions from industry-funded roles to government ones, and more often than not, there is no meaningful separation between the two. An example of this is her involvement with the EU/ UN proxy known as the ‘Tax Justice Network’ (TJN). We’ll be delving much deeper into this subversive economic ‘think-tank’ later on in ‘Red Gail and the Borderless Tax Collectors’; for now, a brief overview of the organisation will serve as a good example of how ‘astroturfing’ works. 

  • A star-struck Gail alongside astroturfer extraordinaire John Christensen.
  • John Christensen, described by the ever-critical Guardian as “the unlikely figurehead of a worldwide campaign against tax avoidance.”

The reason the TJN provides such a good case study is because, whereas many such NGOs go to the trouble of disguising themselves, with the TJN there isn’t even a pretence of separation between them and the EU/ UN, whose people brazenly sit on its board as Trustees and Directors alongside ‘tax justice activists’ who audaciously present themselves as ‘reformed tax avoiders’ – owing to the fact that they previously held high-ranking positions within some of the world’s largest ‘offshore’ accountancy firms.

The TJN’s founder, John Christensen, previously worked for the offshore financial services firm Touche Ross & Co; and for 11 years he was economic adviser to the government of the British Channel Island of Jersey. This is another reason why the TJN and its subsidiary organisations provide such a clear example of what has become known as ‘controlled opposition’ – the process whereby an entity, be it an industry giant or government agency, actually creates and funds its own opposition groups.

Take, for example Greenpeace, whose two largest donors are the Rockefellers (whose money paid for the land on which the UN headquarters in New York was built), and the foundation of Ted Turner, media mogul, largest land owner in the U.S., and creator of Captain Planet, who in 1997 donated 1 billion dollars to the UN. Or the 100+ ‘environmental’, ‘social justice’ and ‘sustainable development’ groups that are funded by the oil barons and arch-eugenicists of the Rockefeller clan.

The most advanced and pernicious form of these tactics is known as ‘astroturfing’, which is the creation of fake ‘grass-roots’ (hence, astroturf) campaigns, then used to push for, or smother authentic opposition to industry and/or government policies and agendas. Astroturfing uses networks of paid, ‘professional activists’ who operate through the various proxy organisations. We hope this demonstrates the cold, calculative efficiency with which these people operate. Anyhow, there’s much more to come on the TJN, in the strand entitled “Red Gail and the Borderless Tax Collectors.”

Throughout this investigation into the creators of Extinction Rebellion, we’ll be delving deep into world of the ‘professional activist’. Along the way we’ll explore many of the think-tanks, NGOs and campaign groups involved in astroturfing the environmental movement, as well as dredging up some of the sharks and bottom feeders that lurk in their depths.

You’ll see many individuals cropping up again and again, with some members of the NGOligarchy presiding over vast constellations of charities, think-tanks and lobby groups, all designed to create the appearance of an organic ‘ground-swell’ of concerned citizens, academics and ‘thinkers’ who all (coincidently enough) push for near-identical policies and reforms; most of which mirror, perfectly, the objectives and policies of the EU, UN and their foundation, trust and funding body puppetmasters. One merely has to look at who funds these NGOs and charities to conduct their ‘research’ and to promote their toothless campaigns or quack economic theories cum technocratic, globalist ideology. Follow the money, as the saying goes!

We’ve traced the development of these ideas within the academic-intelligence apparatus, back to (at least) the early 90s, and to a new generation of internet-savvy intelligentsia – keen to leverage their understanding of emerging technologies by studying their sociological and political implications, and then ‘selling’ what they learn back to the corporate-state (as a means of preserving their monopoly on cultural and intellectual expression, increasingly threatened by the advent of more horizontal, network orientated information technologies). Gail, her mentors and employers, have been on the peripheries of these concepts since their genesis. We will explore these networks more in the strand entitled: Digital Citizenship in the New Dark Age.

BITC’s corporate sponsors from when Gail first joins.
Citizens Online ‘partners’ just before Gail starts to work for them.

Gail Bradbrook has spent the past 18 years on the pay-roll of charities, NGOs and political ‘think-tanks’ (like the Blairite/New Labour IPPR), being funded by J. P. Morgan Chase (which happens to be the UN’s bank), BT, Shell, Microsoft, CISCO, Panasonic, Goldman Sachs, BAE Systems, NEON Communications (whose ‘Director of Global Sales’, Lord Anthony Tudor St John, is heavily invested in 5G technology and also sits as trustee of Citizens Online), IBM, Unilever, N. M. Rothschild & Sons… you name it: the whole ‘in the club’ of corporate funny-handshake hegemony – to give ‘independent advice’ to government and help develop government strategies, policies and to define their objectives.

This, we can prove beyond any doubt: the paper trail exists and will be presented throughout this series – the question which yet remains unanswered is whether or not Gail’s latest project, Extinction Rebellion, should be seen simply as a continuation of this work, or whether she has genuinely ‘gone rogue’ and is now biting the hand that has been (and still is) feeding her, quite handsomely, for the vast majority of her adult life.

This is just the beginning: stay tuned.

Political Charities and Professional Activism: NGOs for hire.

UN Extinction

Carrier, supposedly, a greener future, the autonomous vehicle could also be an environmental fiasco, because of the explosion of induced digital exchanges …

Electric motor, shared use, driving more economical than that of the average motorist … autonomous driving carries with it all these changes, promise of less atmospheric pollution and climate. Still, the equation is not so simple.

AFP has published a report based on a study by consulting firm AT Kearney , which interviewed 150 industry executives on the consequences of developing autonomous driving. One of Tesla’s main selling points (in particular) may prove to be an environmental disaster.

Among the impacts of the autonomous vehicle, there is the footprint, in terms of energy consumption and raw materials, of the on-board electronics. Automated driving devotes the reign of the digital world: algorithms, sensors, radars, lasers analyze in real time road and surroundings (classification of lanes, traffic, car parks, weather, price of gasoline etc). Other content also allows passengers to be entertained.

I believe that the whole ~ ‘Brexit’ theme was nothing more than another psyop in the game and it is part of the agenda that there will be NO DEAL amongst those cretins in the House of liars. Why do I think this?

Everything that is happening is a coordinated effort to bring about an agenda, the illusion of democracy is just that.
We are at this point in time with events occurring for a reason.

BREXIT … Are you aware that the company who was solely responsible for the vote and the mainstream media reviews is the same company that is pushing the smart city agenda in the UK?

The Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) invests in oil, gas, electricity, petrochemicals, infrastructure, 5G technology, communication technology and real estate and owns more real estate in the UK than in Canada or the rest of Europe.

It is a consortium that includes OMERS, Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System and Ontario Teachers Pension Plan and holds shares in a huge amount of companies.

They also own 48% of Arqiva who in turn are:

The UKs pre-eminent national provider of TV & Radio Broadcasting Infrastructure, the leading provider of Infrastructure services.
The leading investor in 5G Infrastructure via small cells and antenna systems.
The leading smart meter contractor.

The leading portfolio of wireless Infrastructure sites.
A Provider of smart meters for water,gas and electricity.
A Contractor to many councils to roll out 5G cell towers.

In 2017, Arqiva began the sale of its UK mobile-wireless masts.
Snapped up the license for 28Ghz spectrum which has already been trialled abroad.
Plan to deliver smart meters to millions of homes over the next few years.
Arqiva and Samsung held the first 5G field tests in UK in 2017.

In 2013, OMERS bought Civica who’s customers included 140 local authorities, thousands of schools,50 universities, 275 healthcare providers and 75% of Blue Light services. Whilst Civica Digital partnered 20 Government departments including the home office, foreign and commonwealth office and the foreign office.

The Electoral Commission counted on the Civica built web application during the referendum which was built in 12 weeks. It was used in the 382 regional areas to give notifications, vote results and analysis of the referendum.
I believe that is why we were told that the vote was practically 50/50. To get the public completely divided.
They sold the company after all this was finalised, no need for it anymore. https://www.civica.com/…/electoral-commission-counted-on-c…/
Present day

The Yellow vest protests are being forged by the agenda, at some point both Anti and Pro Brexit protestors will clash.

May has already agreed to bring in a foreign army should social unrest occur.https://www.politico.eu/…/uk-to-form-part-of-joint-eu-euro…/
The rest is history.

The Protocols of The Elders of Zion, published in 1897.

I know that there are many who do not believe it was written by Zionists, but by the Jesuits, either way there is no doubt that what was written back then has taken place and that it is blue print for the future domination of all people. The same book which Henry Ford in 1921 wrote that the protocols are 16yrs old and fit in with what are going on now.

The book also discusses the successes they arranged for Darwinism,Marxism and Nietzsche-ism  amongst others. It states,” Before us is a plan which is laid down strategically the line from which we cannot deviate without running the risk of seeing the labor of many centuries brought to naught.”In Protocol 111 entitled ‘Methods of Conquest’ is states, “We shall throw upon the streets whole mobs of workers simultaneously in all of the countries of Europe” and “When the populace has seen that all sorts of concessions and indulgences are yielded it, in the same name of freedom it has imagined itself to be sovereign lord and has stormed its way to power, but naturally like every other blind man, it has come upon a host of stumbling blocks. It has rushed to find a guide, it has never had the sense to return to the former state and it has laid down its plenipotentiary powers at OUR feet.”
“Remember the French Revolution, to which it was we who gave it the name of “Great”: the secrets of its preparation are well known to us for it was wholly the work of our hands.

Protocol XV111

“When it becomes necessary for us to strengthen the strict measures of secret defense we shall arrange a simulation of disorders or some manifestation of discontents finding expression through the cooperation of good speakers.
Round these speakers will assemble all who are sympathetic to his utterances.”

“This will give the pretext for domiciliary pre requisitions and surveillance on the part of our servants from the number of the GOYIM police.”

Protocol XV
” When we at last definitely come into our kingdom by the the aid of COUPS D’ETAT prepared everywhere for one and the same day, after definitely acknowledged (and not a little time will pass before that comes about, perhaps even a whole century) we shall make it our task to see that against us such things as plots shall no longer exist.”

” Political freedom is an idea but not a fact’ and that, ” Abuse of power will put the final touch in preparing all institutions for their overthrow and everything will fly skyward under the blows of the maddened mob, our goal is only a few steps off. There still remains a small space to cross and the whole long path we have trodden is ready to close its cycle of the symbolic snake, by which we symbolise our people.When this rings closes, all the states of EUROPE will be locked in its coil as in a powerful vice.”

” Of states we have made gladiatorial arenas where a lot of confused issues contend…A little more disorders and bankruptcy will be universal”

As far as the protests go, they have made sure that the people are so divided that taking to the streets as one voice is NOT even possible, what happens when the protest grow to such an extent that thousands of people are on the streets, some anti Brexit, some pro Brexit?

You have a fuse just waiting to be lit, this is why I believe that this whole situation is just another part of their plan as can be seen in the book above.

We are talking about the streets being full of the same individuals who would beat the shit out of each other on Black Friday to get themselves a bargain!

People who attack each other in numbers because their football teams were having a match, people who hate foreigners and those who welcome them, our whole country is full of people who oppose each other, putting them all on the streets amongst agent provocateurs is not a good idea at this point.

I think people should stay at home, refuse to work, except for emergency services, food etc Do not pay bills, rent, mortgages etc just use the money to buy non perishable food. Use civil disobedience and not walk straight into what appears to have been plans laid down a century ago by those with total control in mind.

On July 1st 2008, France began its road safety awareness campaign

The Delegation for Road Safety

The Directorate of Road Traffic Safety (DSCR) is a central administration directorate created in 1982 within the Ministry of Equipment.

It became the Delegation for Road Safety and Traffic in 2008 and was attached to the Ministry of the Interior in 2012. In 2017, the Delegation for Road Safety and Traffic (DSCR) changes its name to become the Road Safety Delegation (RSD).

This led to the introduction of the yellow jackets to be kept in vehicles.

The French Ministry of Interior (Ministère de l´Intérieur) is at the heart of the State’s action throughout the country.

The International department (Direction de la Coopération Internationale/DCI) an active department of the French Police was set up in 2010. It is the first joint department of Police and Gendarmerie, created by a merger of the Police International Technical Cooperation service (SCTIP, set up in 1961) and the Gendarmerie International Cooperation sub-directorate (SICD, set up in 1985). Reporting to the heads of the Police and the Gendarmerie, the DCI contributes to the application of the Ministry’s international strategy and the implementation of France’s foreign policy in the fields covered by the Ministry of the Interior. It leads and coordinates all the international technical cooperation of the Ministry of the Interior, except for issues that are covered by the intelligence services.

So we can see how the yellow jackets were introduced in 2008, and   Ministry of Interior was attached to the RSD in 2012.

A UN Global Road Safety Trust Fund was established by United Nations Secretary-General, and was launched in New York on April 12, 2018.

On 1st October 2018,  Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Road Safety, brought together the members of the FIA High Level Panel for Road Safety (HLP) in Paris.

Here is the FIA in a Youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SykQtch3q2Yshowing its links to the smart city agenda, notice that the company Qualcomm is in the mix.

Qualcomm is the leading developer of microchips and processors for mobile communication networks, they developed the first generation of 5G after buying out an Israeli company called DesignArt in 2012.

This FIA body brings together 57 leading personalities, from both the public and private sectors, committed to road safety worldwide. 

Macron announced a contribution of three million euros, which constitutes a first step, to the UN Road Safety Trust Fund from France.

France is the first country to contribute to this Fund, which has already received contributions from the FIA Foundation and  Total. 

One of the members of the FIA is Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman of the Board and CEO, Total  which has 2,200 petrol stations across the country.

Other members include World Bank Group,Mayor of Paris and Chair of C40, Rolando Gonzalez-Bunster, Chairman and CEO, InterEnergy Holdings who is also a director of the Clinton Foundation.

Rémy Rioux, CEO, French Development Agency (AFD)Rémy Rioux, CEO, French Development Agency (AFD)

French Development Agency is a public financial institution that implements the policy defined by the French Government.

Violeta Bulc, Commissioner for Mobility and Transport, European Union (EU)

Peter Thomas Drennan, Under-Secretary-General for Safety and Security, United Nations (UN)

Liu Zhenmin, Under-Secretary-General, United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

So the timeline ;

The UN begin a road safety trust 12th April 2018.

Woman begins a petition on FB in May just weeks later.

UN/FIA have Paris meeting 1st October 2018 about roads and safety.

Drouet uses FB to call for yellow vest protests on October 21st 2018.

FIA pushing the Smart City Agenda https://www.fia.com/smart-cities-season-2

Once again, the UN is involved in a  event that happens just prior to these riots, along with the French Govt, banks and Total.

Once again it is an Urban Mobility EU/UN initiative pushing for Smart cities.

The following 48 page pdf is a document discussing the future of street lighting and how it relates to the IoT and Smart Agenda.

Brian Buntz of the Internet of Things Institute provides a useful metaphor: ‘Lamp posts may well follow a trajectory similar to that of mobile phones. It wasn’t so long ago that mobile phones were suited for one purpose only – making calls. Now, making a phone call has become almost secondary to all of a smart phone’s other capabilities. Similarly, while the lamp posts of yesteryear provided only illumination, modern-day lamp post can serve as multi-functional smart-city nodes, capable of monitoring everything from crime to parking to weather.

This report will discuss the progression of smart lighting infrastructure from the adoption of LED bulbs, to the creation of a distributed smart city platform. It will investigate a number of applications that can be hosted through street lights, detailing use cases, benefits and potential business models, as well as providing examples of real-life case-studies wherever possible.

The humble lamp post may well become the most valuable real-estate in the city for future deployment of smart city services. Many pieces of the smart lighting puzzle are available including low cost, low-power LED lighting, multiple methods of connectivity, multiple sensors and the applications to support them, however, the true potential of the smart lighting infrastructure remains relatively underrated. This report will discuss the progression of smart lighting infrastructure from the adoption of LED bulbs, to the creation of a distributed smart city platform. It will investigate a number of applications that can be hosted through street lights, detailing use cases, benefits and potential business models, as well as providing examples of real-life case-studies wherever possible.

3.1 CONNECTED LIGHTING VENDORS

Having taken note of this huge market potential, several traditional lighting vendors are creating their own intelligent lighting systems, and numerous innovative start-ups are emerging in the field.

VENDOR DESCRIPTION

Philips

Philips is a global smart public lighting vendor, with its CityTouch management platform deployed in cities around the world including London, Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles. Philips supplies lights, control units for power lines or wireless networks, and a lighting control system.

Echelon

Echelon is a vendor of generic control platforms, therefore does not supply luminaires, but rather the control systems that work with them. Echelon developed the LonWorks standard, which is used for the automation of various functional within buildings and cities, for example, lighting. By 2010, approximately 90 million devices were installed with LonWorks technology.

Telensa

Telensa is a specialist provider of street lighting control systems. Similarly to Echelon, Telensa does not supply luminaires, instead providing its own wireless technology and PLANet Central Management System that allows management of lighting infrastructure. The company is also active in parking and vehicle tracking applications.

Silver Spring

Silver Spring has predominantly been involved in smart meter deployments, however it has recently acquired Streetlight.Vision, a provider of CMS systems for street lighting. Their CMS system can control lights using either power lines or wireless communication networks, and is widely deployed across Europe and Asia.

GE Lighting

GE provides all components of a smart street lighting system, including luminaires, control nodes, wireless mesh networks and central management systems. Its proprietary platform for managing public street lights is called LightGrid.

Osram

Osram is a spin-off of Siemens and supplies luminaires as well as full lighting solutions including a management platform called Street Light Control (SLC) which is based on Echelon’s LonWorks technology. Osram’s street lighting solutions have been deployed around the world in cities like Milan.

Cisco

Cisco offers a Smart+Connected Lighting solution which combines with its Smart+Connected Multi-Sensor Node to create a light-sensory network (LSN). As well as acting as a lighting control system, the resultant platform is capable of gathering a wide variety of data from the environment including levels of humidity, CO2 and O2, particulate matter, motion, video and sound. The solution has been piloted in cities including Amsterdam and Nice.

Cities all over the world are already adopting intelligent street lighting systems. However, they are now starting to see the wider potential of the humble lamp post. Both traditional lamp posts and more advanced smart lighting installations have the potential to act as a smart city platform, enabling a range of other smart city applications through the integration of data collection devices such as sensors and cameras. Lighting infrastructure is being used as a basis for solutions in many areas, however, this report will discuss applications in the following areas: • Environment monitoring • Transport optimisation (traffic management and parking) • Public safety • Electric vehicle charging • Wi-Fi and internet provision • Digital signage and public communication.

BARRIERS

The deployment of smart street lighting infrastructure and the integration of the additional solutions described throughout this report often involve multiple vendors, numerous independent systems and complex technological interactions. This creates a number of barriers to the successful use of smart lighting infrastructure as the technological foundation of a smart city.

Cooperation of multiple stakeholders

Looking more widely at the actors involved in deploying these solutions, implementations will inevitably require the cooperation of different industries with diverse skills, competencies and working methods. In addition to manufacturers of lighting infrastructure, hardware vendors, software providers and connectivity service providers will all come together. Furthermore, business agreements will need to be negotiated with each of these providers based on the value of the service provided.

Complexity

Through the addition of multiple solutions to smart lighting infrastructure, there is a real possibility that systems will become overwhelmingly complex. A lack of integrated standards, mismatched interfaces and multiple proprietary systems that are unable to accommodate third-party applications could make connected lighting systems too difficult to implement. Additional solutions will need to be easy for the city or operator to manage and will need to be easily accessible and intuitive for end-users in order to be successful. To mitigate this complexity risk, cities are deploying additional solutions in a modular, incremental fashion, ensuring they see value from one solution before adding another.

Lifespan of Lighting Infrastructure Smart lighting infrastructure is likely be in operation for at least 20 years, therefore the embedded systems need to be adaptable over long periods of time and need to be able to support new applications. Cities are having to plan ahead in order to be prepared for options that are not currently available. For example, ensuring bandwidth is left available for unknown future applications. By planning ahead, cities will be able to leverage their smart lighting infrastructure to roll out an entire smart city blueprint over a period of time.

In order to do this, cities require that software system used by smart lighting solutions needs to be remotely upgradable and based on open standards so that third-party solutions can be added over extended periods. Cities do not have the resources or money to upgrade software systems every couple of years, and are increasingly wary of vendor lock-in. Similarly, the applications developed will need to be compatible with the range of software programs that operate a city-wide lighting network.

 

These networked street lighting systems greatly increase energy savings, with the 50% energy savings realised by switching to LEDs increasing to 80% when integrated with a central management system .

In response to this compelling business case, a number of traditional lighting vendors and innovative start-ups have brought solutions to market.

While the energy and cost saving benefits are driving adoption, cities are increasingly seeing the wider potential of smart street lighting infrastructure. With an even and widespread distribution across urban areas, readily available power and integrated connectivity, smart street lighting is being used to form the technology foundation of a city. Through the addition of data collection devices such as sensors and cameras, street lighting infrastructure is being used as a platform to host a variety of applications.

Applications include:

Environmental monitoring

Transportation applications

Public safety and security

Public Wi-Fi and internet provision

Electric vehicle (EV) charging

Digital Signage

Infrastructure barriers: Lastly, with the integration of multiple applications into smart lighting infrastructure, there is a real risk that the systems will become overwhelmingly complex and too difficult to implement. To mitigate this risk, it is recommended that cities deploy additional solutions in an incremental fashion, ensuring value is being delivered before adding another solution.Despite these barriers, there is huge potential for smart lighting infrastructure to service as a multi-functional smart city platform, capable of monitoring everything from crime, to parking, to weather. Streetlights are ubiquitous in urban areas, can provide power to data collection devices and are increasingly enabled with connectivity capabilities.

The promise of this approach is not so much in the generation of new data, but in the streetlight’s ability to converge previously disparate systems, and enable the development of solutions and services that combine data from a variety of sources to improve services and generate new revenue streams. While business cases for many applications still require strengthening, it is almost certain that lamp posts will be used for more than illumination in years to come.

Max Igan’s latest post on YouTube has some very startling truths that everyone should pay close attention to. As Max has stated and has been my line of thinking for the past few weeks that the Qanaon phenomenon is all smoke and mirrors giving people false hope. For whilst everyone is concentrating following the latest post by Qanaon  everybody’s attention is moved away from the 5G Smart grid, Chemtrails and everything else these psychopaths are using to cull the population of the world and ultimately enslave humanity.

If you are at this Website or are aware of the many activists trying to spread the urgent warning and message then you have some idea of the clear and present danger all Mankind is in. Anybody who is awake as they say have been given the role of a messenger and it’s your duty to inform your neighbor, family and just about everyone else you come across to what is coming. We have roughly 2 years maybe less before we are FUBAR and that’s the plain truth of it there is no sugar coating it.

Put away your fears, breakout of the Matrix and for Gods sake throw away your phones and Television, the theater of disaster, and confusion coming down from the parasites is ever increasing and this is a consequence of the parasites being all to aware that people are starting to see their diabolical criminal actions. You yes YOU have 730 days and the clock is ticking, what are you going to do?

Anyone who’s used an app or online service is probably familiar with the concept of consent. It’s a legal requirement that companies or public organizations that want your electronic personal information should not only ask first, but explain in detail what they want to collect, what they plan to do with it, who they might share it with and why.

But in a smart city, consent “goes out the window straight away,” says Murakami Wood. It’s already hard enough to get people to read the terms of service for the apps they use, and experts are skeptical we could expect any better of someone crossing into the boundary of a smart city neighborhood.

Smart cities, after all, take data collection and analysis to a new, previously unimagined extreme. And with so many different sensors and so much data being collected and analysed, how could anyone be expected to understand, much less consent to it all?
