OXFORD, England (PNN) - January 13, 2023 - Fifteen-minute cities are popping up everywhere, and the World Economic Forum is wildly enthusiastic about them. Last year it was announced that Paris, France, would become a 15-minute city, and now the British city of Oxford is next. However, outraged Brits are fighting back.
The City Council has announced that it will divide Oxford into 15-minute neighborhoods, or small 15-minute towns billed as “greener, cleaner and safer.” To further seize control of people’s lives, globalists are pushing the false idea that these “green” cities - which make services accessible to residents within 15 minutes of their homes - will “save the planet” and help all humanity.
Instead, they are nothing more than a way for them to restrict, coerce, fine, punish, surveil, and limit the fundamental right of freedom of movement for residents. For example, residents are not allowed to leave your 15-minute city by car more than the allotted times a year. Otherwise, you will be fined. In addition, the government will track and control your every movement through your smartphones and facial recognition technology.
Residents are allowed to leave their 15-minute city a maximum of 100 times a year, but then they must first register their car, which is tracked throughout the city via smart cameras.
While the initial allotment of escape tickets may seem reasonable to some, once the public accepts that the state has the right to confine you, it is guaranteed that they will add additional restrictions and fewer permits to leave your zone. This was established very clearly and quickly in many Western nations in the past few years under the rubric of COVID restrictions.
Oxford residents are furious over Council plans to turn the city into “15-minute” controlled zones. They have been brushed away by the Council, which has ignored their displeasure.
Oxford citizens have taken to the streets, “The media are silent, of course,” writes Fascist United Kingdom journalist Sophie Corcoran. She implored people to stand with the citizens of Oxford against this type of totalitarianism.
