I received this from Jonnie Adams today and it is great. Have a look and I think you will agree.

Awareness of Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development is racing across
the nation as citizens in community after community are learning what
their city planners are actually up to. As awareness grows, I am
receiving more and more calls for tools to help activists fight back.
Many complain that elected officials just won't read detailed reports
or watch long videos. "Can you give us something that is quick, and
easy to read that we can hand out," I'm asked.

So here it is. A one page, quick description of Agenda 21 that fits on
one page. I've also included for the back side of your hand out a list
of quotes for the perpetrators of Agenda 21 that should back up my
brief descriptions.

A word of caution, use this as a started kit, but do not allow it to
be your only knowledge of this very complex subject. To kill it you
have to know the facts. Research, know your details; discover the NGO
players in your community; identify who is victimized by the policies
and recruit them to your fight; and then kill Agenda 21. That's how it
must be done. The information below is only your first step. Happy

What is Sustainable Development?

According to its authors, the objective of sustainable development is
to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to
achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and
restoration of biodiversity. Sustainablists insist that every societal
decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three
components; global land use, global education, and global population
control and reduction.

Social Equity (Social Justice)

Social justice is described as the right and opportunity of all people
"to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the
environment." Redistribution of wealth. Private property is a social
injustice since not everyone can build wealth from it. National
sovereignty is a social injustice. Universal health care is a social
justice. All part of Agenda 21 policy.

Economic Prosperity

Public Private Partnerships (PPP). Special dealings between government
and certain, chosen corporations which get tax breaks, grants and the
government's power of Eminent Domain to implement sustainable policy.
Government-sanctioned monopolies.

Local Sustainable Development policies

Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning
Projects, STAR Sustainable Communities, Green jobs, Green Building
Codes, "Going Green," Alternative Energy, Local Visioning,
facilitators, regional planning, historic preservation, conservation
easements, development rights, sustainable farming, comprehensive
planning, growth management, consensus.

Who is behind it?

ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability (formally, International
Council for Local Environmental Initiatives). Communities pay ICLEI
dues to provide "local" community plans, software, training, etc.
Addition groups include American Planning Council, The Renaissance
Planning Group, International City/ County Management Group, aided by
US Mayors Conference, National Governors Association, National League
of Cities, National Association of County Administrators and many more
private organizations and official government agencies. Foundation and
government grants drive the process.

Where did it originate?

The term Sustainable Development was first introduced to the world in
the pages a 1987 report (Our Common Future) produced by the United
Nations World Commission on Environmental and Development, authored by
Gro Harlem Brundtland, VP of the World Socialist Party. The term was
first offered as official UN policy in 1992, in a document called UN
Sustainable Development Agenda 21, issued at the UN's Earth Summit,
today referred to simply as Agenda 21.

What gives Agenda 21 Ruling Authority?

More than 178 nations adopted Agenda 21 as official policy during a
signing ceremony at the Earth Summit. US president George H.W. Bush
signed the document for the US. In signing, each nation pledge to
adopt the goals of Agenda 21. In 1995, President Bill Clinton, in
compliance with Agenda 21, signed Executive Order #12858 to create the
President's Council on Sustainable Development in order to "harmonize"
US environmental policy with UN directives as outlined in Agenda 21.
The EO directed all agencies of the Federal Government to work with
state and local community governments in a joint effort "reinvent"
government using the guidelines outlined in Agenda 21. As a result,
with the assistance of groups like ICLEI, Sustainable Development is
now emerging as government policy in every town, county and state in
the nation.

Revealing Quotes From the Planners

"Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be
implemented by EVERY person on Earth…it calls for specific changes in
the activities of ALL people… Effective execution of Agenda 21 will
REQUIRE a profound reorientation of ALL humans, unlike anything the
world has ever experienced… " -Agenda 21: The Earth Summit Strategy to
Save Our Planet (Earthpress, 1993). Emphases – DR

Urgent to implement – but we don't know what it is!

"The realities of life on our planet dictate that continued economic
development as we know it cannot be sustained…Sustainable development,
therefore is a program of action for local and global economic reform
– a program that has yet to be fully defined." -The Local Agenda 21
Planning Guide, published by ICLEI, 1996.

"No one fully understands how or even, if, sustainable development can
be achieved; however, there is growing consensus that it must be
accomplished at the local level if it is ever to be achieved on a
global basis." -The Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide, published by
ICLEI, 1996.

Agenda 21 and Private Property

"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 principle instrument of
accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to
social justice." -From the report from the 1976 UN's Habitat I

"Private land use decisions are often driven by strong economic
incentives that result in several ecological and aesthetic
consequences…The key to overcoming it is through public policy…"
-Report from the President's Council on Sustainable Development, page

"Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle
class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances,
home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not
sustainable." -Maurice Strong, Secretary General of the UN's Earth
Summit, 1992.

Reinvention of Government

"We need a new collaborative decision process that leads to better
decisions, more rapid change, and more sensible use of human, natural
and financial resources in achieving our goals." -Report from the
President's Council on Sustainable Development

"Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective."
-Harvey Ruvin, Vice Chairman, ICLEI. The Wildlands Project

"We must make this place an insecure and inhospitable place for
Capitalists and their projects – we must reclaim the roads and plowed
lands, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled
rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres
or presently settled land." -Dave Foreman, Earth First.

What is not sustainable?

Ski runs, grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences,
industry, single family homes, paves and tarred roads, logging
activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic
systems that fail to set proper value on the environment." -UN's
Biodiversity Assessment Report.

Hide Agenda 21's UN roots from the people

"Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely
bring out many of the conspiracy- fixated groups and individuals in
our society… This segment of our society who fear 'one-world
government' and a UN invasion of the United States through which our
individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to
defeat any elected official who joined 'the conspiracy' by undertaking
LA21. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive
planning, growth management or smart growth." -J. Gary Lawrence,
advisor to President Clinton's Council on Sustainable Development.
