Grass-based farmers and those seeking healthy food from nontoxic farms are facing a new political threat, foisted on an unsuspecting populace worldwide in the form of United Nations Agenda 21, a forty-chapter blueprint for population control and world control that emerged from the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janero. “Sustainable development” is the catchword for Agenda 21, the threat of which is succinctly summarized in the You Tube video “Agenda 21 for Dummies.”
Implementation of Agenda 21 is the mandate of a globally operating UN Non-Government Organization (NGO) called the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), now usually referred to as Local Governments for Sustainability. More than six hundred American cities and counties are paying taxpayer money to belong to this NGO group, which is aligned directly with the UN Charter while diametrically opposed to the U.S. Constitution and to private property rights.
Of course there is nothing wrong with what I call “small s” sustainability as practiced for generations by conscientious farmers, ranchers and others living in rural areas who are good stewards of their land. I raise chickens, have an organic garden, I recycle diligently and do a lot of walking and cycling―but I have a real problem with what I call “big S Sustainability” as promulgated via UN Agenda 21.
During the 1992 Earth Summit, which launched the global movement known as UN Agenda 21, Maurice Strong, the Secretary General of the UN, addressed the gathering and said the following: “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.”
Here’s how Big S Sustainability works: If you own livestock and they can drink from a creek, then they want you to permanently fence off your own land to prevent any upset of potential fish habitat. If you want to irrigate your crops and somebody decides it isn’t good for a certain insect, then you no longer have irrigation rights.
Vegetarianism is a major tenet of Sustainable Development. Agenda 21 focuses on the goal of eliminating meat consumption and using pastures to grow wheat, corn and soy for human consumption. To get us to comply, we’re told in endless propaganda campaigns that meat is dangerous and the vegan lifestyle is the only healthy alternative.
How will we be able to get grass-fed beef if ranchers are blocked by environmental regulations from being allowed to graze cattle close to streams, or from putting up fencing where they need to on their land? “Grazing livestock” is listed as “unsustainable” in the UN’s Global Biodiversity Assessment Report. In the same document, agriculture and private property are listed as “unsustainable.”
Out-of-control environmental regulations destroyed the livelihood of all the farmers in the San Joaquin Valley of California, the richest agricultural region in the U.S., when the water was shut off by the EPA to protect a two-inch long fish called the delta smelt. The San Joaquin Valley used to grow twenty billion dollars worth of vegetables and fruit per year, more than any individual state in America. California has a new endangered species on its hands―farmers!
Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said it best when he said, “There is Capitalism, Communism, and now there is Sustainable Development.”
All the private property and water rights infringements we have been seeing come directly out of the Sustainable Development programs. They come in a wide variety of names to throw people off, such as Comprehensive Planning, Growth Management, Smart Growth, and so forth.
Sustainable Development is a term used to describe a new form of collectivist global ecogovernance: a process of governing every action people take on a basis of people’s impact on the environment, often based on junk science. It elevates nature above man, and is being used to drive farmers, ranchers and people living in rural areas off their land to force people into urban areas.
The end goal of the people-pushing of this agenda is to have vast areas made off limits to human beings and to cluster people into envisioned futuristic “sustainable” hive-like cities inside which every aspect of our lives is to be dictated, and from which travel is to be very highly restricted.
THE GOOD NEWS
The good news is that there is a growing bipartisan American movement to stop this criminal agenda. Starting with Carroll County, Maryland, at least one hundred thirty-eight counties and communities have booted ICLEI. Alabama has voted as a state to remove itself from ICLEI.
And people are becoming more aware!
There are two excellent books on the subject:
• Behind the Green Mask―UN Agenda 21, by Rosa Koire
• The Perils of Sustainable Development by Rene Holaday
I urge everyone you know to contact their state legislators urging passage of legislation similar to the bill that passed in Alabama, which blocks any federal or state agency from seizing anyone’s land without due process of law. See http://legiscan.com/gaits/text/645326.
The price of freedom is eternal vigilance! It’s obvious that the ILCEI does not consider groups like the Weston A. Price Foundation to be “sustainable.” Please get involved or support those in your community who are working against UN Agenda 21 and ICLEI!

I noticed the list of counties/communities (how very overused is this word!) in the sidebar in which Greenfield, Massachusetts is listed as one that opted out. I live in Greenfield and find this very difficult to believe because the Agenda 21-speak is rampant here. They’ve got the international codes as well. There is no awareness to speak of regarding Agenda 21 here.
Agenda 21 was never supposed to become public knowledge. A number of the governments clubbed together and decided it without public knowledge. It is a lot worse than what you probably know. I am making it widely known as it will not only remove animals it will remove human life by 93%.
no house, no land. no rights at all. It will make the leaders very rich and everyone else so poor they will likely not be able to afford food to eat. That is what they want.
Tony Blair is a war criminal, but don’t get me wrong ” The wheels of Justice might turn slowly, but they do turn”
A major part of the implementation of Agenda 21 is the purchase of private land by the USFWS. They have literally unlimited funds at their disposal for this. They receive this money as off budget income derived through royalties paid to the US Mineral Mining Service by those Big Oil companies who drill off our coasts.
The USFWS is in massive growth mode. Here in New England they have already made it clear that within thirty years they have plans to own nearly 1/2 the acreage in both Vermont and New Hampshire. Its ostensibly to keep the waters of the Connecticut River clean – of course. To do so they have stated that they need to won all of the land found within each watershed flowing into the Connecticut as well. They have similar plans for Massachuestts and Connecticut as well.
At the same time this was all announced the USFWS has also rolled out plans to purchase all of the private land between southern Rhode Island and Cape Elizabeth Maine. Covering four states it will involve land acquisition on a scale equal to what you see out West. Folks the parasites in .gov mean business. Its going to take serious work, networking and educating to beat them. Most landowners remain oblivious to the machinations of those in power.

This is very real in the State of Washington, too. The counties are members of ICLEI, commissioners and “planning” departments are increasing the rules and regulations on private property with daily fines that no one can afford. We worked hard to elect new commissioners, but have to stay vigilant, attend hearings, stand up and speak, write letters and comments, watch new bills, and see way down the road to the new threat coming. Mental Health and Behavioral Agreements between counties are here now, and these are REGIONAL Agreement Councils wherein we do NOT have elected representation, no voice of the People in joint-county agreements. Regionalism is the structure of communism, the UN Agenda 21 plan.
We know as WAPF members that mental health and behavior are directly related to the gut and toxins in the brain and body. But the medical field influencing government would use the mentally impaired and the homeless to use drugs and confinement in housing, the same as the compacted human housing of UN Agenda 21. I am now looking for the best “White Paper” presentation on Mental and Behavioral (Healing/Solutions) to present to our elected government officials. Please help if you can! I’d give them all the GAP book, if I could – but, then when would they read it? We need a very clear and easily sourced outline that makes the point that mental health and behavioral issues can be healed, and that drugs are not the answer.

Thanks for these replies! Its been a few years since I wrote this article, I should have been checking back regularly to respond to replies but have not been! I especially want to thank Jai, Stuart and Leilani for your very useful comments! If any of you would like to talk with me in real time I can be reached at 1-800-333-2553 H&W Toll Free North America or you can reach me by email at email@example.com I was able to go beyond the article published in Wise Traditions Journal with this more recent one in 2012 http://hartkeisonline.com/2012/12/04/chemtrails-conspiracy-educate-yourself/ but have been immersed in a continuously expanding awareness of this complex issue and welcome help from anyone who sees this! It would especially help if you could help me awaken WAPF members to the reality of UN Agenda 21 since some members who are very politically partisan and extreme left of center in ideology have been particularly blind in their misplaced loyalty to the United Nations and to Globalism and there is way too much that they’re not seeing. I was even kicked out of the Bellingham WAPF chapter over this issue due to the extreme close mindedness of a guy in that chapter who owns a health food store in Bellingham so wields clout within the group. Its really a shame when WAPF members can’t find ways to bridge a political divide that should not exist when it comes to this issue especially since it threats to drive so many farmers and ranchers off their land, but beyond that, we’re opposing genocide, and some people just can’t handle that reality and are too stuck in a mind prison to be able to hear me. I appreciate Kimberly Hartke for posting my second article on this topic on her blog. If you see the numerous comments that follow it, you will see that some WAPF members are just very blind to the sad reality of this issue. I need help from people across the political spectrum to expand the consciousness on this issue amongst the ranks of WAPF members world wide!
Anyone INCLUDING left of center people could benefit from seeing this site http://www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com and everyone can benefit from reading the info in my archived newsletters at http://ymlp.com/archive_gjbeuhgjgu.php If you’d like to subscribe to my free double opt in newsletter you can at http://www.iahf.com
We can’t allow ourselves to get all divided up along superfluous “party lines” when considering this issue because if we fail to stop this genocide agenda, it will destroy America, all other countries, and it will usher in a global corporate totalitarian state which would be the iron boot of tyranny stomping in our faces forever. That would destroy WAPF and kill huge numbers of us, so I need all of your help to awaken the masses. I was born neither Republican, nor Democrat, nor YESTERDAY!! I am a WAPF Chapter leader in Point Roberts, WA, and would especially like to talk with Leilani since we both live in WA which is ground zero for implantation of this globalist scam!
The criminals are the cow killers!

Its now February 18, 2020 and nine years have passed since I wrote this article! I am still focused on this issue, and encourage communication from anyone interested in stopping UN Agenda 21!
My brother Steve has a Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from University of Pennsylvania, and he and I have had many discussions on this issue, and we always learn from each other despite being on opposite sides of the political divide. I especially encourage a dialogue with any WAPF members who might share my brothers orientation on this issue, and wonder what you think of the information presented by Rosa Koire at http://www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com ? I ask this because I’d like to emphasize that my perspective is shared by people on BOTH SIDES of the political spectrum who have taken the time to learn the truth!
No WAPF member can afford to be complacent when it comes to UN Agenda 21, and neither can any American Citizen especially! I welcome your communication! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and by calling me at 1-800-333-2553 H&W Toll Free North America, or on Viber (free download via the APP Store) which enables FREE VOIP calls and texts between users world wide!

Please watch this, download, spread, share, multiply and let it awaken the denialists and the “please enslave me” scaredy-cats:
“This will go down in history as the biggest hoax” by Shiva Ayyadurai MIT-Engineer
Watch to the end! (It picks up circa 10min) The “reporter” is one dumb german sheeple! You can use Keepv.id to donwload it, because this is sure to be taken down. I fear for this scientist’s life, with what they did to Susanne Sommers holistic doctor in 2009 and with what happened with rapper Nipecy (sp?) who was allegedly promoting another holistic doc from Africa, also murdered. They need to pay for their crimes, starting with Bill ‘G(r)ates!
Which specific sections of the Agenda 21 document mention genocide and removal of property rights? Can you tell me which pages all this is on?
If it is not mentioned, how can you be certain this is not a conspiracy theory with no proof, made up by people who don’t want their planet-devouring lifestyles curbed?
Benn, it’s a good question and I’ve given it a lot of time and research and I still don’t fully understand it. I haven’t found a section by section analysis of the A21 report (yet) and I think that a broader view needs to be taken when looking at it. In a similar way that a Newtonian view of the world doesn’t actually explain it, whilst a holistic, all encompassing view does. We can’t just look at the document as a stand alone document without looking into the background; where did the concept come from, who funded it, who are the stakeholders, who stands to gain from it etc. The irony being, it is the ones who ‘don’t want their planet-devouring lifestyles curbed’ that are behind the conceptualism and writing of this document.
The document is 351 pages long of dense text and a lot of sugar-coated sustainable development language is used. I have found reference to ‘removal of property rights’ Objective 7.28 refers to this.
When I first heard of A21 being not what it is claimed to be, something in my gut, in my bones told me it was nefarious and that gut feeling cannot be quantified or scientifically proven. If you are looking for a smoking gun to prove beyond reasonable doubt that A21 is bad, then you are missing the point. Don’t be afraid to dig deeper into the ‘conspiracy theories’ and you will sift through some of the crap out there to find the actual truth. Rockefellers ‘Lockstep’ scenario planning, WEFs Great Reset, Event 201, they are all tied into this. Look into origins of organisations funding these, what they own and what they stand to gain. Following the money could lead you to your smoking gun.
I am part of a permaculture network of people that love and care for the planet but can see what that A21 provides us with is a dictatorial view of how to ‘save the planet’ rather than a bottoms up, grassroots movement, from the people, for the people
