Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 are part of the UN Millennium Program. These programs are anathema to liberty and the republican and democratic forms of government. Your attention to this will benefit you and your descendants, family and friends.
The United Nations Agenda 21 Agreement was signed by President George H.W. Bush on behalf of the United States, who also signed the predecessor agreement in Rio. If you were to ask at random the question, “Have you heard of Agenda 21?” the answer would be an over-whelming “No,” although it is being implemented in every local community.
Agenda 21 is a 40 chapter document listing goals to be achieved globally. It is the global plan to change the way we “live, eat, learn and communicate” because we must “save the earth.”
“Its regulation would severely limit water, electricity, and transportation – even deny human access to our most treasured wilderness areas, it would monitor all lands and people. No one would be free from the watchful eye of the new global tracking and information system,” according to Berit Kjos, author of Brave New Schools.
What you should know is that UN Agenda 21 has already been adopted in the U.S. and most of the countries of the world. This UN non-binding agreement was done without ratification by the U.S. Senate. It is already being implemented in the U.S. at the federal, state, county and community levels. You can read about all about it on the UN website. But, to understand it, you need a translator who understands UN-speak or an excellent ability to read between the lines and connect the dots.
Communities, fisheries, industries, resources, governance, police, environment, money, population control, property control, a tax on all financial transactions to permanently funds the UN (or its successor), and global taxation and regulation of carbon dioxide (i.e. your breath and energy), all planned at the global level – that’s Agenda 21. Its basis is communitarianism. Most Americans have heard of “sustainable development” – that’s UN-speak for compliance with Agenda 21. Turn on all of your defenses.
In a nutshell, Agenda 21 calls for governments to take control of all land use and offshore resources and not leave any of the decision making in the hands of private citizens or property owners. It is assumed that people are not good stewards of their land and environment and the government will do a better job if they are in control. Individual rights in general are to give way to the needs of communities as determined by the governing body. Moreover, people should be rounded up off the land and packed into human settlements, or islands of human habitation, close to employment centers and transportation. Another program, called the Wildlands Project spells out how most of the land is to be set aside for non-humans.
U.N. Agenda 21 cites the affluence of Americans as being a major problem which needs to be corrected. It calls for lowering the standard of living for Americans so that the people in poorer countries will have more, a redistribution of wealth. Although people around the world aspire to achieve the levels of prosperity we have in our country, and will risk their lives to get here, Americans are cast in a very negative light and need to be taken down to a condition closer to average in the world. Only then, they say, will there be social justice which is a cornerstone of the U.N. Agenda 21 plan.
Agenda 21 dovetails with the UN Law of the Sea Treaty. I went to a meeting with the fishermen and their wives in Gloucester, MA. The catch here today is about 90 million pounds per year, down 50%. Next year they will only be allowed 10%-20% of their 2012 catch (varies by fish species.) Most of Gloucester’s fishing industry will be gone, replaced by giant corporate fishing factory ships offshore run by Walmart, Cosco, Whole Foods and their international equivalents. It’s already happening. Whole Foods no longer buys seafood from Gloucester’s fishermen. Imagine the cost to every small fishing boat which are now required to take an official government minder aboard every morning they go out to sea, who verifies the weight, size species of each catch. Meanwhile, a multimillion dollar NOAA research ship speeds by staffed by PhD’s and their computers attempting to sample and count fish on the fishing banks, but they can’t find the fish which the local fishermen are bringing in by millions of pounds. The PhD’s report the fishing banks are being depleted without asking the fishermen or looking at the catch reports of the government-required minders.
Study Agenda 21 carefully. It is a plan to strip you of sovereignty, liberty and wealth…unless you happen to be one of the protected global elites. The sole piece of legislation authored by Senator Barack Obama supported the UN’s program, the lofty sounding Millennium Program, to transfer wealth to third world countries.

The following is an Agenda 21 summary by Henry Lamb
Where did governments — at every level — get the idea that they are supposed to manage the affairs of their citizens? Governments were first created in America to serve their citizens. Now, citizens must ask their government for permission to build a house, to drive a car, to open a business, or to buy a gun. The role and authority of government has changed over the years from an entity that serves the needs of its citizens to an entity that manages the affairs of its citizens.
In recent years, especially since the emergence of Agenda 21 in 1992, government has assumed the role of forcing its citizens into lifestyles that government dictates. Agenda 21 is a set of policy recommendations designed to achieve what it defines to be “sustainable development.” The document claims that this transformation of society is necessary to save the planet.
One of Agenda 21’s first policy recommendations is to “…ensure sustainable management of all urban settlements…“ (Article 7:15), which means to force people off the land and into high-density, planned communities. Consequently, government decided that it is a bad thing for citizens to move to the suburbs. Government labeled this practice as “urban sprawl,” and condemned it. Moreover, government continues to enact laws to prohibit or severely discourage people from moving to the country.
Local governments are encouraged, or forced, to adopt Comprehensive Land Use Plans that often create “Urban Boundary Zones,” beyond which municipal services will not be provided. To discourage “urban sprawl,” some local plans even require up to 40 acres to build a single home outside a UBZ. Even then, the government often dictates the maximum size of the structure, the percentage of the land that must be left in its natural condition, and the location of the structure in relation to any stream or hill. In some instances, government can even require a home builder to purchase open land and dedicate it to the government as mitigation for despoiling what government says is a wetland or critical habitat.
Why does government think it has either the wisdom or the right to dictate to a private citizen where he should live?
Government management of lifestyles doesn’t stop with dictating where its citizens must live. With the introduction of the International Green Construction Code, government will be able to force private citizens to use the paint and building material it dictates, as well as the plumbing fixtures and appliances it dictates. Moreover, under the specifications of this onerous code, government can require “Smart Meters,” and even specify the level of natural light that must be available in the building.
This transformation of the function of local government is partially the result of requirements dictated by state governments, but primarily, it is the result of pressure from the federal government. The federal government gave the American Planning Association more than $5 million to produce model legislation for state governments to adopt. The APA produced “Growing Smart: Legislative Guidebook.” The federal government offered states a variety of grants to adopt and implement the legislation promoted in the APA’s guidebook. The federal government has provided a variety of grants to local governments and to non-government organizations, to promote and implement the recommendations set forth in Agenda 21.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development offers a “Partners for Sustainable Communities” grant program that has Agenda 21’s sustainable development projects working in 49 of the 50 states. The Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency also has grant programs that promote the implementation of Agenda 21’s sustainable development recommendations.
Perhaps more than any other influence, Agenda 21 is responsible for transforming government from a servant of the people to the master of the people. Agenda 21 is the outgrowth of a fundamental transformation of philosophy established in 1976 at the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements. That conference adopted a document which said:
“Land… cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice…. Public control of land use is therefore indispensable.”
The United States government accepted and endorsed this document with signatures provided by William K Reilly, who was to become the Administrator of the EPA, and by Carla A. Hills, who was to become U.S. Trade Representative who negotiated the World Trade Organization and the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The United States also endorsed “Our Common Future,” the report of the 1987 U.N. World Commission on the Environment, as well as Agenda 21, produced by the 1992 U.N. Conference on Environment and Development. Since the 1970s, the United States environmental policy has been guided by the United Nations. These policies are constructed on the Marxist idea that government exists for the purposes of ensuring that all people benefit equally from the earth’s resources. Marx says that government should abolish private property, and should take from those who have the ability to produce wealth, and give it to those people who do not produce wealth.
This is the objective of Agenda 21. This is the ultimate goal of sustainable development. This is happening in your community.
