Strong Cities Network Launch - (Kris Ann Hall)


The Strong Cities Network is named after Maurice Strong and has nothing to do with resilience of Cities.

lorattalynchswearingelizabethcarlysle81.jpgUS Attorney General, Loretta Lynch worked in secret to establish US involvement in the ISD led Strong Cities Network. Her involvement was only uncovered when Judicial Watch requested FOIA documents revealing Lynch had used a fake email ID (Elizabeth Carslisle) to commit US participation in a crime prevention operation that requires significant adherence to global policies, foreign conduit communications with Mayors and local municipality officials that illegally bypassed State government oversight in violation of the US constitution, municipal charters and elected officials' oath of office.


The Institute for Strategic Dialogue (ISD) was founded by career Zionist, George Weidenfeld / Baron Weidenfeld (1919-2016)


Launched at the United Nations in September 2015, the Strong Cities Network (SCN) is the first ever global network of mayors, municipal-level policy makers and practitioners united in building social cohesion and community resilience to counter violent extremism in all its forms.


Led by the Institute for Strategic Dialogue and comprised of more than 130 cities, the SCN builds collaboration between mayors, political actors and frontline teams to tackle polarisation, hate and violence in local communities in every major global region. The network catalyses, inspires and multiplies community-centric approaches and action to counter violent extremism through peer learning and expert training. This is the SCN launch on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in New York 2015. For more information, see the following links:

Strong Cities Network: Myth-busting We note that some of the reporting on the Strong Cities Network has been misleading. We also recognise that – because of the current context and the mistakes of past approaches – many organisations and individuals may have incorrect views and perceptions about the nature of the Strong Cities Network or conflate valid critiques of existing Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) policies with it. Below,we address some myths or false perceptions that some people may have about the Strong Cities Network. (more)
