According to a recently published white paper there is a worldwide effort to restrict the right to travel of everyone. And you will not believe how the U.N. is involved.
A recent article at PapersPlease.org warns that the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) wants to check every airline passenger’s background and send airlines an “Authority to Carry” before a passenger is allowed to board a plane.

An iAPI system allows for a two-way communication in near real-time. The airlines transmit the API message on a per-person basis to the requesting authorities at the time of check-in, while law enforcement agencies have the opportunity to decide whether a certain person is allowed or not to board a plane by issuing a board/no-board message.
Think about what this means; the self-proclaimed “largest regional security organization in the world” the OSCE, wants to conduct background checks of every airline passenger in the world.
The work of the OSCE spans the globe, encompassing three continents – North America, Europe and Asia – and more than a billion people.
Giving a private organization the ability to control the right to travel of nearly 8 billion people is horrifying.
The white paper warns that the OSCE and the International Air Transport Association are working together to track every airline passenger.
Thanks to the UN and its member states, the OSCE has been collecting close to 50% of airline passengers’ personal information since 2017.
UN helped create a worldwide airline tracking program
According to the white paper, the United Nations (UN) played an important role in creating a worldwide airline tracking program.
In December 2017, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2396. Building upon previous Resolutions 2178(2014) and 2309(2016), it calls upon Member States to collect API and PNR information. Because 2396 was adopted under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, compliance with this obligation is mandatory for all Member States.
Full implementation of Resolution 2396 represents a massive undertaking. To date, only 48% of OSCE participating States have set up an API system,
