Swiss National Referendum Will Limit Population To 10 Million Through Strict Immigration Control, To Save Environment

The most popular party in Switzerland, the Swiss People’s Part (SVP), known for its agrarian roots and opposition to mass immigration, is set to pursue a referendum calling for the renegotiation of international treaties, or even theircomplete abandonment, if the Swiss population hits 10 million.

As John Cody reports at Remix News, the proposed referendum comes at a time when Europe increasingly faces environmental catastrophe, a housing crisis, and huge strains on public resources due to soaring immigration levels. Many European nations are among the most densely populated nations in the world and life in them is only expected to become more crowded in the near future unless dramatic action is taken. Switzerland is no exception.

“Our country is cracking in every corner. We are going through the debacles of recent years. If we don’t intervene, we will be overtaken by events,” said Marcel Dettling, the SVP’s campaign manager.

Dettling warns that economic migration remains high, especially from groups known for their difficulty integrating into Switzerland, a fact highlighted by Switzerland’s alarming prison population data.

“Today, there is very strong economic migration,” says Dettling. 

“Whoever has set foot in Switzerland will never leave the country. Migrants from Africa have welfare rates of 34 percent.”

Dettling’s party is meeting on Jan. 6 and 7 in Thurgau, near the shores of Lake Constance, and the main topic of discussion is expected to be immigration, with the new referendum featuring the working title “initiative for sustainability.”

Explosive population growth

The text for the referendum has also already been completed and would stipulate that Switzerland’s population should not exceed 10 million until 2050. After 2050, this limit could be slightly increased but only due to organic, surplus births.

SVP National Councilor Thomas Matter says he must sound a “red alert” over Switzerland’s rising population, adding that “this is the last moment when we can still change something for Switzerland.”

“The migration figures are hair-raising,” he said. 

“In 2022, Switzerland will have 200,000 more inhabitants, the population of the canton of Basel-City.” 

There is also the threat that a conflict between Serbia and Kosovo would only ramp up the refugee numbers Switzerland is facing.

The country is already rapidly approaching 9 million residents. In 2022, 145,958 people arrived, raising the population to 8.89 million. It. is now only a matter of time until the population hits 9 million.

Over the past 20 years, Switzerland’s population has increased by 21 percent.

“If Switzerland grows so strongly again over the next 20 years, everything will collapse,” said Matter, who serves as a national councilor. 

According to him, the country’s financial reserves for education, health and transport are exhausted.

“It is urgent to leave the model of quantitative growth for qualitative growth.”

Details of the referendum text

Just like the country’s debt brake, the referendum would serve as a brake on immigration. The text stipulates that if certain population limits are reached, the government must take certain steps to inhibit population growthFor example, if Switzerland’s population reaches 9.5 million, the Swiss Federal Council will have to take steps with new laws to counteract this growth.

However, if the country reaches 10 million, the government must respond with “rigorous measures,” including the Federal Council abandoning international agreements, such as the UN migration pacts or EU treaties relating to free movement.

It is important to note that Switzerland has featured a number of referendums on the topic of immigration in the past, including the famous 2014 referendum “against mass immigration,” which won with 50.3 percent of the vote. The SVP-backed referendum was designed to place strict quotas on immigration, but despite winning the vote, the referendum was more or less made toothless by the Swiss parliament.

Switzerland was threatened by the EU over any attempt to restrict free movement, with the EU warning Switzerland that any abandonment of free movement would have meant that all EU agreements became null and void, which would have presented severe economic consequences for the country.

The SVP harshly criticized the final agreement, which failed to implement immigration quotas but instead offered moderate improvements regarding job market conditions for the Swiss. The SVP called it “a betrayal of voters’ wishes” and unconstitutional, while the EU commission celebrated the “hugely watered-down version of the initiative.

The SVP, this time around, will include language in the referendum that outright calls for Switzerland to ignore these international agreements, but Swiss business interests and the country’s left-liberal bloc are likely to put up a serious fight should the referendum win.

SPV argues that immigration does not equal endless growth

The current Western model promotes the idea of endless GDP growth through mass immigration. More immigrants equal more consumers, more housing construction springing up across the countryside, and more Third World peoples adopting a First World lifestyle.

Left-liberal and Green parties across the Western world have simultaneously called for Europeans to have fewer children to save the environment, while promoting mass immigration from Middle Eastern, African, and Asian countries, with these newcomers known for their notoriously high birth rates. At the same time, countries like Switzerland, Germany, and the United Kingdom are breaking population records due to immigration, leading to a severe strain on the environment and social welfare models within these European nations — a development that has been rejected by only a handful of nations such as Denmark and Hungary.

The right, if it wants to survive, may have to tie environmental causes and climate change, which the youth of Europe overwhelmingly believe is occurring, to soaring population growth through immigration. The Swiss referendum may be a nod to a growing reality. Any referendum that calls for immigration restriction is likely to fail given the growing pro-migration youth vote, but if it can be tied to green causes, such a referendum may have a chance.

Futhermore, the SVP argues that this endless population growth model is not only unsustainable, but actually will not result in the desired outcome of endless economic growth.

SVP National Councilor Manuel Strupler states that purely “quantitative” immigration does not guarantee higher per capita growth. Furthermore, this type of immigration “dilutes” the values ​​of Switzerland.

“At some point, someone will have to pay the costs of our current policy. We have a duty to the next generation to preserve the values ​​that have made Switzerland successful”

Thomas Matter argues that population growth has actually reached the point of harming economic growth and will help push the country into recession. He says that while the population will increase by 2.5 percent in 2022, per capita income will only rise by 2 percent:

“They want us to believe that immigration rhymes with growth. But in reality, we are heading towards a recession,” he said.

He notes that France and Germany have closed their borders to illegal immigration from Switzerland, with Switzerland increasingly seen as a transit country. He warns that “a disaster is brewing.”

He’s Furious

The billionaire hypocrite.



Billionaire John Caudwell is warning of an “environmental apocalypse” due to CO2 emissions.

Last month, he bragged about using his private helicopter instead of a car to save time on getting back to his £90 million mansion.

He also owns a 73 foot superyacht which belches 1,500 times more CO2 than the average car.

Why Did Bill Gates Make Sudden U-Turn On Climate Doom Narrative?



Zero Hedge

Microsoft co-founder, philanthropist, and climate alarmist Bill Gates has backtracked on ‘climate doom’ prophecies. The writing is on the wall for the political and financial elites, who have long championed imminent climate doom, realizing that the public sees through the charades. 

In 2021, Gates previously warned about apocalyptic consequences if the world does not achieve zero net carbon emissions by the year 2050. He also promoted his new book, “How to Avoid a Climate Disaster” (fear sells). 

On Thursday, Gates made a sudden U-turn on his climate doom narrative and now expects “No temperate country is going to become uninhabitable.”

Gates spoke at a live event at The Times Center in New York and argued: “If you try to do climate brute force, you will get people who say, ‘I like climate but I don’t want to bear that cost and reduce my standard of living.” 

He also dismissed planting trees to save the planet, questioning: “Are we the science people or are we the idiots?” he said. “Which one do we want to be?”

Gates’ latest comments are a stark difference from just a few years ago when he warned “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace: 

“The migration that we saw out of Syria for their civil war, which was somewhat weather dependent, we’re going to have 10 times as much migration because the equatorial areas will become unlivable.” 

Gates’ U-turn comes as BlackRock CEO Larry Fink abandoned the term “ESG” (environment, social, and governance). And the ‘green bubble‘ is imploding. 

And, of course, Gates is smart. He understands the propaganda isn’t working anymore and must resonate with the majority to prevent getting ‘Bud Light’d.’

Apple Touts Commitment to ‘Mother Nature’ in Cringe Climate Change Ad

“Our aim is to permanently remove carbon from the atmosphere.”



Chris Menahan | Information Liberation


Apple CEO Tim Cook released a cringeworthy ad on Tuesday featuring Apple execs touting their commitment to Mother Nature — as represented by a sassy black woman — and pledging to make all Apple products “have a net zero climate impact by 2030.”

“Our aim is to permanently remove carbon from the atmosphere,” one Apple exec says in the ad.

In the past, our business leaders used their wealth to build Churches, museums, libraries and other highly valuable public works — now they worship Mother Nature, bow before the altar of “Diversity, Inclusion and Equity” (DIE) and donate millions to the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center to take away the American people’s free speech rights.

In 2017, Tim Cook donated $2 million in Apple funds to the Anti-Defamation League and Southern Poverty Law Center to fight “hate.”

Whereas ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt is giving Elon Musk and Twitter/X hell for daring to take steps to support free speech, Greenblatt rewarded Cook with an “ADL Courage Against Hate Award” as a kickback.

“‘Lo ta’amod al dam re’eikha,’ Do not be indifferent to the bloodshed of your fellow man,” Cook said during his speech, speaking in Hebrew.

“We only have one message for those who seek to push hate division and violence you have no place on our platforms,” Cook told the pro-Israel lobbying group.

Of course, hatred of whites and Christians is to be encouraged and must be taught to children.
