According to the United Nations, "Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action
to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United
Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human
impacts on the environment."
Agenda 21 is actually a world-wide blueprint for international totalitarian
control of all the earth, and its resources including "human resources".
The goal of Agenda 21 is "sustainable development" a term used to
expound upon the U.N. position that human beings are destroying the earth's
atmosphere, its wildlife, and natural resources.
It is hence the purpose of Agenda 21 to curtail this supposed "threat", by
pushing for governments to implement policies, restricting populations of
people from engaging in risky behavior that these globalists deem as lacking
What behavior is considered risky or lacking "sustainability"? Virtually
every behavior in which one engages in a free society. And that is the problem.
Under Agenda 21, land, water, minerals, the air, the population itself all
must be tightly managed. Relocation of populations of people to "sustainable
communities" is a necessary part of the "sustainable" equation.
If "sustainable development" is achieved, freedom will be nothing more than
a fading memory on the global U.N. plantation.
Instrumental in the implementation of world-wide "sustainable development"
which is nothing less than world-wide Marxism are numerous

pre-interventionist American foreign policy. We seek out innovative, non-violent
ways that will restore our national system of laws and political economy.
We aim to expose and abolish communitarianism as a manufactured Marxist

The Earth Charter is an authoritative synthesis of values, principles, and
aspirations that are widely shared by growing numbers of men and women in
all regions of the world. The principles of the Earth Charter reflect extensive
international consultations conducted over a period of many years. These
principles are also based upon contemporary science, international law, and
the insights of philosophy and religion. Successive drafts of the Earth Charter
were circulated around the world for comments and debate by nongovernmental
organizations, community groups, professional societies, and international
experts in many fields.

"The world needs a new global architecture, additional layers of governance, to deal with issues that neither nations nor traditional forms of intergovernmental organizations can cope with." ("Europe, A Beautiful Idea" by Amitai Etzioni, September 2004 conference at the Hague)
The communitarian plan for reinventing a global government was adopted by the UN in 1992 at the Earth Summit. There were no public votes cast for or against it in any of the affected "free" nations. Average citizens were not consulted. In most free and democratic countries, the nation's taxpayers (who pay for it) were never even told about it. The major media outlets were mostly silent while for thirteen years, the UN's LA-21 laws have been imposed on all 166 member nations.
There were no big discussions of its purpose or ultimate consequences. It just slid into law. It's really pretty amazing. No major editorials, no explanation of how it would be imposed, it was barely announced by the national governments who endorsed it. Only a few enlightened locals understand LA-21 requires a total reorganization of government systems. It eliminates individual rights in the free countries. National systems of political economy are subserviant to LA-21 laws.
The plans are generally thought of as a "good thing." So few people bother to read their new vision for community, even if they know there's a plan. Why should they? It's presented by experts, and none of us common folks are experts, are we? Besides, really nice people promote it as a just, scientific, holistic, grass-roots, non-threatening way of cleaning up the world and making it a friendlier place. The barriers are outdated national governments and the millions of selfish people who cling to the idea of local rule. The entire world must be merged into a communitarian system. Because so many resist, it's best if only a few know about it until the integration process is complete.
"One must act 'as if' in Europe: as if one wanted only very few things, in order to obtain a great deal. As if nations were to remain sovereign, in order to convince them to surrender their sovereignty. The Commission in Brussels, for example, must act as if it were a technical organism, in order to operate like a government ... and so on, camouflaging and toning down. The sovereignty lost at national level does not pass to any new subject. It is entrusted to a faceless entity: NATO, the UN and eventually the EU. The Union is the vanguard of this changing world:it indicates a future of Princes without sovereignty. The new entity is faceless and those who are in command can neither be pinned down nor elected ... That is the way Europe was made too: by creating communitarian organisms without giving the organisms presided over by national governments the impression that they were being subjected to a higher power. That is how the Court of Justice as a supra-national organ was born. It was a sort of unseen atom bomb, which Schuman and Monnet slipped into the negotiations on the Coal and Steel Community. That was what the 'CSC' itself was: a random mixture of national egotisms which became communitarian. I don't think it is a good idea to replace this slow and effective method - which keeps national States free from anxiety while they are being stripped of power - with great institutional leaps - Therefore I prefer to go slowly, to crumble pieces of sovereignty up litle by little, avoiding brusque transitions from national to federal power. That is the way I think we will have to build Europe's common policies..."

"UN Local Agenda 21 is the foundation for the international sustainable development movement, a "great institutional leap."
"The official purpose for sustainable development was defined by the United Nations. Today this is the exact same definition used by all U.S. government agencies.
"As was explained in the previous steps, developing a viable LA21 requires a working partnership between the local government and the local community. This is done through a series of passive and active means: Passive means include newspapers, TV, radio, posters and brochures, notice boards, Internet mailing lists, etc. Active means are more interactive and involving, and include meetings and seminars, workshops, voting and referendums, competitions, exhibitions etc.
"These exercises are essentially aimed at visioning and scenario building, where participants are encouraged to visualize the type of community that they would like to live in the future. Such scenario building is also useful later to develop indicators against which progress can be measured.
"A whole range of organizations and institutions are targeted for involvement: green clubs, citizens and neighbourhood groups, universities and research institutions, local chambers of commerce, guild and individual firms, and other 'stakeholders' in the local environment.
"The techniques and methodologies used in involving the local community in planning the LA21 is critical for public acceptance. Transparency in activities being undertaken, local environmental information, information on other local Agenda 21, best practices and good ideas, etc. are important ingredients in the process." From: Localizing Agenda 21
Here's why the ACL includes UN Local Agenda 21 in its research topics:
Communitarianism is the political theory that supports LA-21 redevelopment. We are anti-communitarians, which means we oppose the dialectical ideology that insists the globalists hold the power to rebuild the world into one imperial community under supreme COMMUNITARIAN LAW.
If you are coming here from outside the United States, please know that we are openly opposed to communitarian laws and plans. This site does not support eliminating nations in order to form a one world community government.
Many nationals come here after searching for specific country's Local Agenda 21 Plans. If you agree with us, or if there is any organized local resistance in your country against your Plan, we'd like to know. From the number of visitors lately, it appears this powerful and important legal document is finally getting the national attention it deserves. Every country in the world has a Local Agenda 21 blueprint, even though many remain unfinished. We link to several of them here if you cannot find yours online. We appreciate links to opposition sites from anywhere in the world. It's not only our country that will disappear under this plan. Iraq had one before Operation Freedom, and hardly any of their plan was filled in. This really is the plan for a global government. The entire world is at risk.
I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.
Will Rogers (1879-1935)
After the ACL found Agenda 21 in 2000, we asked everyone in Seattle government if the Roosevelt Neighborhood Plan was a UN Local Agenda 21 Plan. They all assured us they had no idea what we were talking about. Former Bellevue Councilmember Nancy Rising, (who was an enormous assistance in our quest for answers) took the ACL to visit several Seattle Councilmembers, including Seattle City Councilmember Margaret Pageler. Today Pageler's website openly states: "The City of Seattle works for sustainable development at the local and regional level, in a program that parallels Local Agenda 21. The City Council endorsed the Earth Charter in a 2002 resolution."
Feb 20, 2008: Eight years after I started asking everyone in my city, county, state and federal government about Agenda 21, after living with their "conspiracy theorist" label because I claimed there was a UN plan to rebuild the U.S. (and the whole world), I learned of the following 2 resolutions presented in the U.s. Congress. This information just came to me in Jan 2008 from Gisela at Alaskans Against the NAIs (National Animal Identification System). I don't know how I missed it, but I was moving pretty fast in those early days when I was building these pages. Another possiblity is I never looked for the legislation because they were so adament in their rebuttals.. some of them laughed right in my face. I sure wish this update had been on this page for the thousands of Americans who've visited us in the past five years.

Calls on the President to recognize June 5, 1992, as World Environment Day.
Declares that the President should not support any action or undertake any commitment pursuant to this Act that would adversely affect the competitiveness of American industry or that would result in a net long-term loss of American jobs.
The U.S. system of government is designed to protect and maintain individual rights:
"All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights." (Article One, Section One, Washington State Constitutionhttp://www.courts.wa.gov/education/constitution/index). LA-21 modifies legitimate national laws, programs, and policies that conflict with the plan.
In October 1992 the U.S. Congress decided the U.S. should "assume a strong leadership role" in LA21.
CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Expressing the sense of the Congress that the United States should assume a strong leadership role in implementing the decisions made at the Earth Summit by developing a national strategy to implement Agenda 21 and other Earth Summit agreements through domestic policy and foreign policy, by cooperating with all countries to identify and initiate further agreements to protect the global environment, and by supporting and participating in a high-level United Nations Sustainable Development Commission.
Whereas the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (hereinafter in this preamble referred to as `UNCED'), known as the Earth Summit, assembled in June of 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the largest summit of heads of state in history and outlined a comprehensive action plan for environmentally sustainable development, known as Agenda 21;
Whereas the United States has a strong national interest in the environmental sustainability of global economic development, and many pressing environmental and economic problems are inherently transboundary and not susceptible to resolution by the actions of any single nation acting alone;
Whereas Agenda 21, a plan of national and international actions to integrate environment and development, negotiated and adopted by the United States and 177 other countries, offers a significant starting point for continuing progress in avoiding environmental degradation and social and economic disintegration in the 21st century;
Whereas the role of the United States, as a major economic force and a country that has long been in the forefront of environmental protection activities nationally and internationally, should be one of leadership and positive action in the implementation process of Agenda 21 and all decisions of UNCED;
Whereas Agenda 21 urges all governments to adopt national strategies for sustainable development;
Whereas Agenda 21 urges all countries to `make significant progress' in incorporating environmental costs into economic decisions, to undertake research or sustainable production methods and consumption patterns, and to undertake other actions to make their economies more environmentally sustainable;
Whereas Agenda 21 calls for a `supportive international climate for achieving environment and development goals,' by `providing adequate financial resources to developing countries and dealing with international debt,' and calls for `the reallocation of resources presently committed to military purposes' to support United States policies and the efforts of developing countries to implement Agenda 21;
Whereas UNCED recommended that a high-level United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development (hereinafter in this preamble referred to as the `Commission') be established by the 47th United Nations General Assembly to provide a vital forum in which the member states of the United Nations may review progress made by considering reports from national governments, international organizations, and nongovernmental organizations;
Whereas the United States was an active and positive participant in UNCED negotiations regarding the Commission, and will play a major role in the decisions of the 47th United Nations General Assembly regarding the specific modalities and effectiveness of the Commission;
Whereas the agreements adopted at UNCED are milestones toward the achievement of environmentally sustainable economic development and for holding governments accountable for progress toward integrating environment and development;
Whereas many opportunities for agreements concerning more extensive actions on critical issues remained unresolved at UNCED and will require further attention by the nations of the world; and
Whereas the ultimate success of achieving sustainable development and a healthy environment at the national and international levels depends upon actions taken at the State and local community levels, and on actions by schools, public offices, businesses, and citizens: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of the Congress that--
(1) effective follow-up to achieve the many goals of the agreements reached at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (hereinafter in this resolution referred to as `UNCED') will depend on the following actions by the President and the United States Government:
(A) The United States should adopt a national strategy for environmentally sustainable development, based on an extensive process of nationwide consultations with all interested organizations and individuals, including State and local governments, nongovernmental organization, businesses, and labor groups.
(B) The United States Government should encourage and facilitate, at all levels of community and sectors of society, appropriate means for adopting individual Agenda 21 plans of action, including the establishment of local, county, State, business, and other boards and commissions for achieving sustainable development. Each member of the Congress should help initiate this process within their States or districts.
(C) The President should establish an effective mechanism to plan, initiate, and coordinate United States policy for implementing Agenda 21. Responsibility should be vested in a duly constituted office, headed by an appropriate high level official, and the necessary staff support structure should be provided.
(D) Policies should be formulated for foreign policy and foreign assistance in order to help developing countries, and for domestic actions in order to assure appropriate action by the United States to implement Agenda 21;
(2) in order to contribute to a transition to a sustainable United States economy, the research and policy initiatives urged in Agenda 21 should be pursued, including research on sustainable consumption and production patterns, creation of a policy framework for sustainable consumption patterns, identification of a strategy to eliminate or reduce subsidies for unsustainable natural resource exploitation, and to improve pricing policies;
(3) the Congress should adopt a plan to reallocate an appropriate amount of savings from reduced defense spending in order to achieve its goals of global environmental protection and sustainable development over the next decade;
(4) the President should urge and actively participate in new and existing multilateral efforts aimed at creating a more favorable international economic climate for developing countries to practice sustainable development, and such efforts should include international consultations regarding reduction in developing country debt linked with environmental policy reforms, and increased loans and concessional assistance upon development and implementation of national sustainable development strategies in developing countries;
(5) the United States should actively support, at the 47th United Nations General Assembly, the effective establishment of a high-level United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development (hereinafter in this resolution referred to as the `Commission'), including the establishment of provisions for meaningful participation by organizations of the United Nations system, international financial institutions, and other relevant intergovernmental organizations and nongovernmental organizations recommended by UNCED;
(6) the President should affirm strong United States commitment to the Commission by appointing a high-level representative from the United States to the Commission, and by encouraging the United Nations Secretary General to appoint an Under Secretary General for Sustainable Development to coordinate the implementation of Agenda 21 in the United Nations system and to head the secretariat support structure for the Commission;
(7) the President should submit a national report to the Commission on activities the United States has undertaken to implement Agenda 21, both domestically and internationally, on progress made toward fulfilling other commitments undertaken at UNCED, and on other environmental and developmental issues that the United States finds relevant, and should strongly encourage all United Nations members to submit national reports;
(8) the United States should encourage the Commission to call for periodic international meetings to continue the process toward developing and advancing international agreement to facilitate sustainable economic development for the protection of the global environment and the promotion of human dignity of current and future generations; and
(9) the President should submit an annual report to the Congress on the steps taken by the United States to implement Agenda 21 and the recommendations made by this resolution, and should make information regarding such steps available to members of the Congress upon their request.
Passed the House of Representatives October 2, 1992.

The 100th Congress enacted the Global Climate Protection Act as Title XI of H.R.
1777 of P.L. 100-204, assigning Department of State and the Environmental Protection Agency the responsibility to develop a coordinated national policy on global climate protection and containing other measures for coordination, research, and international cooperation.
In the lOlst Congress, interest widened among Members and committees of relevant jurisdiction that sought to acquire information from all sides of the scientific debate over possible global climate warming, to evaluate the potential economic and strategic impacts on the United States of a warmer climate, and to assess the adequacy of the Federal organizational base for conducting scientific research and policy studies. Seventy-three bills, resolutions, concurrent resolutions, and amendments dealing with global climate and atmospheric change were introduced in the lOlst Congress.' There were major enactments that dealt with global warming issues in legislation on: foreign aid decisions and U.S. foreign lending policies (P.L. 101-167, P.L. 101-240, P.L. 101-513); clean air (P.L. 101-549); Department of Defense environmental research and activities (P.L. 101-189, P.L. 101-510); water resources (P.L. 101-397); taxation (P.L. 101-239, P.L. 101-508); agriculture and forestry (P.L. 101-624); and Federal organization (P.L. 101-6061. For further information, see CRS Report 91-359 SPR, Global Climate Change and the lOlst Congress: A Review of Legislation.
Congressional interest and concern about climate and global change continued
during 102nd Congress. There was interest among the relevant congressional
committees in overseeing congressionally mandated efforts to improve coordination
among Federal agencies conducting scientific research in atmospheric change and policy research in impacts assessment and response strategies. Congress also closely followed the progress of U.N. negotiations for achieving a framework convention on global climate and sent a parliamentary delegation to the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, in June. The Senate consented to ratification of the Convention [Treaty Doc. 102-381; the instrument of ratification was signed by the President on Oct. 13, 1992. On the legislative agenda, there was a noticeable shift toward formulating
response strategies. A number of bills were considered with provisions that indirectly
affect the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases or that deal directly in a variety of approaches to reduce the rate of generation of greenhouse gases. Other legislation focused on developing accommodation and mitigation measures for climate change, to the extent that global warming occurs. Seventy-one measures relating to global climate change were introduced during the 102nd Congress. Some legislation introduced in the first session was revisited in the second with further hearings, mark- up sessions, or reintroduced as original bills or substituting amendments.
Eight major bills relating to global climate change were enacted in the 102nd Congress. In the first session, these include the Foreign Relations Authorization Act
for FY1992-1993 (P.L. 102-138), which expressed the sense of the Congress regarding negotiations of the U.N. International Negotiating Committee and a
framework convention on climate change; Departments of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban Development and Other Sundry Agencies Appropriations Act for FYI992 (P.L. 102-139), which included funding for EPA and NASA for greenhouse gas, global warming, and stratospheric ozone depletion research and NASA funding for the Consortium for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) to assess policy options to address global climate change; Foreign Operations, Export Financing and Related Programs Appropriations Act for FYI992 (P.L. 102-163), which set forth restrictions on U.S. foreign aid through a Global Warming Initiative; and the National Aeronautic and Space Administration Authorization Act for FYI992 (P.L. 102-1951, which enhanced global change research activities within NASA and improved data collection, archival, and dissemination of remotely sensed land data.
In the second session, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Housing and Urban
Appropriations Act for FYI993 (P.L. 102-389) continued funding of research on global warming and stratospheric ozone depletion for EPA and NASA and
funded CIESIN through NASA and the White Office of Science and Technology Policy
(OSTP); Foreign Operations, Export Financing and Related Programs Appropriations
Act for FYI993 (P.L. 102-391) appropriated funds through AID to developing countries for reducing greenhouse gas emissions through a Global Warming Initiative, and through the World Bank's Global Environmental Facility for other U.S. obligations under environmental agreements; National Defense Authorization Act for FYI993 (P.L. 102-484) called for an evaluation of DOD use of Class I and I1 ozone-depleting substances, which include CFCs and Halons, and a subsequent report to Congress; National Energy Policy Act of 1992 (P.L. 102-486), Title XVI
Global Climate Change, called for the appointment of a Director of Climate Protection within DOE, several reports and analyses of greenhouse gas emissions including a national inventory, and voluntary reporting of greenhouse gas reductions. The title further established a Global Climate Change Response Fund as depository for US. contributions to a financial mechanism pursuant to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change. This Act also increased baseline taxes on certain uses of ozone-depleting substances. For further information, see CRS Report 93-445 SPR, Global Climate Change Legislation: A Review of the 102nd Congress.
It's impossible to negate the fact that there IS an organized plan for a global government. Local Agenda 21 is the blueprint for world government, and it's already being implemented across the globe. Just because most Americans have never heard of it doesn't mean it isn't real. It really doesn't get any more real than this.
All new communitarian laws that eliminate rights guaranteed by national constitutions are inside this international blueprint for rebuilding subserviant local political structures. Many of these spontaneous, grass-roots "visions" for rebuilding community plans are identical. And, none of them happened by "accident."
Not only has the U.S. government totally reinvented itself (and eliminated required checks and balances between branches of government under another communitarian creation called Homeland Security), but almost every state in the U.S. has implemented LA-21 set-up organizations. Most are doing it very quietly, but a few are bragging about doing it. An Earth Charter and Agenda 21 for Iowa posted by University of Iowa is not a "conspiracy theory."
"Without further ado, let the Business Action begin!" "Paris, 3 May 2005 -- These were the words of the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development 13 (UNCSD 13) Chair, John Ashe, when he opened the Business Action event, at the high-level segment of the annual conference in New York last week. Set in motion to demonstrate the business community's commitment to help resolve the global challenges on water and energy, Dr Ashe commended the initiative. "If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem," he said. "These initiatives show that business is part of the solution." He also encouraged business to increase its involvement in partnerships."
See also: Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy, NYU holds a Seminar on "Community Development Law," including "Property Theory: This seminar, taught by Professor Wyman, examines contemporary debates about property using a range of legal, historical, and philosophical materials. The seminar begins by considering four theoretical approaches to property law: the classic utilitarian justification for private property; the Lockean case for property; contemporary rights-based theories of property; and communitarian perspectives. The seminar applies these approaches to live controversies in areas such as environmental and intellectual property law. Drawing on the four theoretical perspectives, the seminar then addresses a range of topics, including property and economic development, the tragedy of the commons, the limits of property rights and markets, social norms, takings, and reparations."
2020 is a key word in identifying LA-21 plans and community mapping/security programs i.e. NIC 2020.
There's nothing local about Local Agenda 21. Local Agenda 21 is the programme for a supra-national government.
Be sure to visit Freedom 21 Santa Cruz-Advance the cause of freedom in the 21st century. America is very fortunate for this organization. Liberty Gardens is a perfect example of the American principles for private land ownership. Owners and developers Michael and Joann Shaw have the most professional approach available to further the side of U.S. opposition to U.N. Local Agenda 21. Their pamphlets and simple tools for local government officials and others asked to write the "local" plans are an excellent source for introducing the real agenda behind gloablized sustainable development. (At the ACL we talk to scholars, and about every related (and often uncomfortable) topic; Freedom 21 Santa Cruz talks to locals and officials who just want to know what's happening to their homes, businesses, and their beloved country.)
Community Developments in Washakie County, Wyoming by Niki Raapana, March 18, 2004. This page is devoted to showing local residents tools for taking back their communities and identifying Local Agenda 21 facilitators in their backyards. (We lived in Wyoming after we left Seattle, so we were able to witness the community developers act in a rural setting. Quite different approaches. Now we live in rural Alaska where it's just beginning to be introduced. Think we should start attending their "meetings?")
Non-afilliated also means non-grant funded. Invest in poor American anti-communitarian writers and researchers:
The real agenda: Communitarians quietly (and illegally) balance U.S. laws in favor of the global sustainable developers. Our "new" law endorses free trade economics, promotes a quasi-religious blending with ideologies, and is based in ancient mysticism. The "moral" communitarians think they're above U.S. law. They ignore the fact that all changes to the U.S. Constitution must be pre-approved by 3/4 of the fifty united state's legislatures. Based on the available evidence, the ACL finds the entire Communitarian policy agenda is treason against the people of the United States. Our goal is to expose the Communitarian philosophy used by Libertarians, Republicans, Democrats, Greens, and bi-partisanThird Wayers. We want every voter in the world to recognize communitarian laws, buffer zones, players, policies, and "logic."
What is Communitarianism? Communitarianism is the over-all system used by the ruling elite to govern the globe in their emerging Supra-national World Order.
Communitarian "thinking" can be categorized into 11 primary disciplines: Philosophy, Law, History, Ideology, Religion, Natural Sciences, Politics, Education, Public Policy, Economics, and Social Theory. The ACL will (someday) reformat this entire site according to each of the above categories. Early ACL "explanations" of communitarianism show how hard it's been for us, as untrained writers, to introduce the main topic of communitarianism without getting lost in its hundreds of thousands of sub-topics (The Balance of Man, What the Communitarians Stand For, What in the World is Communitarianism?). Our interest in Etzioni and the communitarian system of law began when we learned about Community Policing. Dr. Etzioni led private "debates" to limit American's privacy. (Dr. Amitai Etzioni April 2003, under revision)
Regional Governance by Jackie Patru. This is a concise collection of citations of U.S. government discussing the need for creating U.N. regional governments. It's been a stated necessity that the government must gain control all private property (particularly farm lands) for the good of the public, dating back to 1934.
Joan Veon has attended U.N. conferences for many years, she's interviewed several of the major U.N. players, and she presents links to all the major conferences combined with the most detailed coverage and analysis of Agenda 21 on the net, all posted at WomensGroup.org.
Our Global Neighborhood by Henry Lamb at eco-logic in 1996 is a thorough examination of the Commission on Global Governance. Highly recommended for the serious student of national sovereignty and individual freedom.
Berit Kjos does a wonderful job of examining what Local Agenda 21 will do to America.
According to MSNBC, the far-right sees the United Nations as a precursor to world government, and the far-left sees it as a tool of the Imperial United States. So we see, even mainstream news sites like MSNBC speak to us only from the dialectic. There are more than two American views to the U.N., but as usual, we're expected to identify our opposition to the U.N. with either the far-right or the far-left. If we just cannot join one of the established opposition camps, we are labeled into the communitarian-Third Way camp, which is the Hegelian synthesis to the conflicts between the right and the left. As freeborn people, we still believe in the spectrum of infinite possibilities, and so the ACL considers the facts about U.N. Local Agenda 21 from outside the dialectic. Our opposition to submitting to a communitarian global legal system fits into none of their predetermined viewpoints.
Iraq's Local Agenda 21 Plan. Was this UN plan for rebuilding Iraq written before or after the latest joint US-British-Israeli Operation Freedom invasion?
Syria's Local Agenda 21 Plan. Was the Israeli need to "cut out Syria" and rebuild the old (1948) British-mandated pipeline that gave Iraqi oil to Israel included in Syria's "Local" Agenda 21 Plan? Does it matter that the proposed Haifa pipeline was already built in the 1980's? or that " .. an agreement has been quietly renewed every five years, with special legislation which permitted the United States to stock a strategic oil reserve for Israel, at a cost to the United States of $3 billion in 2002, even if this entailed domestic U.S. shortages."
L O C A L I Z I N G Agenda 21 in Palestine. Does Chapter 19 of AIRJ's plan for Localizing Palestine include plans for the Palestinian "wall?" (Note: this link to pictures of the wall is on an openly critical anti-Zionist/anti-Bush website that supports leftist anti-war efforts, but it has the only good pictures of the wall I could find. Does this "fence" really exist?) 6/5/04- here's the contractor information: McGraw-hill.
U.N.'s tentative agenda for the September 2003 Habitat Meeting includes plans for Eqypt and Libya. Do the people in these countries know about this plan? Or is it like it is in the US, where only politicians, academics and "development partners" know about the Plans, and the majority of the population isn't told ANYTHING?
"A new world order must provide for the full and fair participation of the majority of the people of the world who live in developing countries. They must have equitable opportunities to share the benefits, just as they share the risks, of our technological civilization. And surely the highest priority should be accorded to eradication of the dire and debilitating poverty that condemns so many people, particularly in developing countries, to suffering and hunger that are an affront to the moral basis of our civilization. This is one of the primary themes of Agenda 21." Remarks by
Maurice F. Strong Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Ontario Hydro Chairman, The Earth Council, The European Institute, Washington, D.C., USA, November 4, 1993

Global Vision: Sustainable City (formerly Zero Population Growth) Sustainable City is an international collaborative research endeavour to develop the world's first GIS (Geographical Information Systems) computer simulation programme for any town or city to see itself - and its surrounding environment - as a whole system. The project is now in development by Global Vision Corporation, a Non Governmental Organisation accredited to the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD). It is part of the international follow-up to Habitat II - the Second United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (June 1996), where it was nominated as a Corporate Best Practice at the World Business Forum on Enterprise, the City, and Sustainable Development.
Sustainable City is designed as a practical tool for sustainable development planning. It is intended to facilitate the local implementation of Agenda 21, the blueprint for the sustainable development of our planet which was agreed at the United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. It is meant to be used in conjunction with the exellent Local Agenda 21 Planning Guide published by the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). Its 48 applications will empower urban stakeholders to understand and balance their community, economic, and ecosystem development needs, and will enable them to:"[endquote]

"All over the planet, cities are carrying out the "utopias" of Sustainable Development. Inspired by the World Environment Day slogan "Green cities, plan for the planet", Geneva is inviting innovating cities across the world to come and present their best practices."
Conference:"Innovating cities across the world". "From the 11 to 13 October 2005, the S-DEV Geneva 05 Conference will showcase innovative and participatory solutions proposed by 25 cities from all continents. Their innovations are ingenious, simple, efficient and cost-effective. The key to success is coordination and synergy between the following four poles : sustainable technologies, active citizenship, new governance and corporate responsibility. An annual rendez-vous of Sustainable Development, S-DEV Geneva 05 focuses on the exchange of concrete solutions articulated around a Conference, Workshops and an Exhibition, bringing together local authorities, public services, enterprises, NGOs, researchers and International Organisations.
Global Green USA. "We need a new system of values, a system which recognises the organic unity between humankind and nature and promotes the ethic of global responsibility," by Mikhail S. Gorbachev, former president of the USSR, former Communist turned communitarian, recent socio-economics partner with Amitai Etzioni. Gorbaachev thinks he's a more moral global leader of formerly free nations like the USA.
Nepotism and elite bloodlines prevail in the New Global Architecture. Global Green USA is directed by Diane Meyer Simon, who was a legislative aide to Senator Birch Bayh in the 1970s. Senator Birch Bayh's son, Evan Bayh, is a current Senator from Indiana and the leader of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC). The DLC is the communitarian 3rd Way political organization that endorses a quietly implemented and completely "new" system for all Americans, regardless of what Americans think. Most Americans have no idea what the DLC or Green Cross represent, and since these organizations always speak about their goals in the loftiest of phrases, only a few astute listeners actually hear their communitarian propaganda. Most Americans DO NOT KNOW what a communitarian stands for. The ACL has a page devoted to the current Senator Bayh, called Bayhwatch. The ACL also has a page devoted to The Third Way.
Havanna 2005 UN Habitat United Nations Human Settlements Programme The Sustainable Cities Programme and the Localizing Agenda 21 Programme-6th Global Meeting of Partners. "The 2005 Global Meeting of the Sustainable Cities Programme (SCP) and Localizing Agenda 21 Programme (LA21) partners will take place from 26 June to 1st July in Cuba, hosted by the City of La Havana.

The meeting will bring together: mayors, high-ranking city officials, urban practitioners, representatives of central/federal governments, urban institutions, heads of international support programmes and key representatives of donor agencies. The meeting is organized jointly by UN-HABITAT, UNEP, the Government of Cuba and the City of La Havana."
Note to U.S. Americans from the U.S. Department of State December 06, 2004. "COUNTRY DESCRIPTION : Cuba is a totalitarian police state, which relies on repressive methods to maintain control. These methods, including intense physical and electronic surveillance of Cubans, are also extended to foreign travelers. Americans visiting Cuba should be aware that any encounter with a Cuban could be subject to surreptitious scrutiny by the Castro regime's secret police, the General Directorate for State Security (DGSE). Also, any interactions with average Cubans, regardless how well intentioned the American is, can subject that Cuban to harassment and/or detention, amongst other forms of repressive actions, by state security elements. The regime is strongly anti-American yet desperate for U.S. dollars to prop itself up."
Philippine Agenda 21 is the nation's blueprint for sustainable development. In concreting the vision, it describes a path for individuals, families, households and communities; an action plan for each ecosystem (coastal/marine, freshwater, upland, lowland, and urban); and across ecosystems in consideration of the interaction of the various lifescapes and landscapes found therein. The path is grounded on respect and active advocacy for the empowerment of the various social groupings of society to manage the economy, critical resources, society and culture, politics and governance and in the arena of foreign relations.
Philippine Agenda 21 advocates a fundamental shift in development thinking and approach. It departs from traditional conceptual frameworks that emphasize sector-based and macro concerns. Philippine Agenda 21 promotes harmony and achieves sustainability by emphasizing.
* A scale of intervention that is primarily area-based. The national and global policy environment builds upon and supports area-based initiatives.
* Integrated island development approaches where applicable. This recognizes the archipelagic character of the Philippines which includes many small island provinces.
* People and integrity of nature at the center of development initiatives. This implies the strengthening of roles, relationships, and interactions between and among stakeholders in government, civil society, labor and business. Basic sectors have an important role to play in achieving equity and managing the ecosystems that sustain life.
PA 21 envisions a better quality of life for all Filipinos through the development of a just, moral and creative, spiritual, economically vibrant, caring, diverse yet cohesive society characterized by appropriate productivity, participatory and democratic processes, and living in harmony and within the limits of the carrying capacity of nature and the integrity of creation.
PA 21 was adopted on 26 September 1996, with the issuance of Memorandum Order No. 399 by then President Fidel V. Ramos which identified the roles of the Philippine Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD) and each sector in the operationalization of PA 21. The action agenda is based on the imperatives of the current national situation and emerging landscape for sustainable development.
PA 21 is a dynamic document that will continue to evolve as new challenges and opportunities emerge, as the level of consensus continue to deepen in the Philippine society, as the Filipinos attempt to solidify the framework, as the government continue to refine the processes, and as the Filipinos strive to widen and enrich their understanding of each other to pave the way for new modes of collaboration.

Here's the . "The Center for Alternative Development Initiatives (CADI) is a Philippine-based civil society organization (CSO) dedicated to the study, encouragement and implementation of sustainable development through threefolding, partnerships. CADI was established in February 1988 to spread the reality of holistic sciences and philosophies of human beings, society and nature."
Agenda 21 for Culture: "The Agenda 21 for Culture promotes the adoption of a series of principles, commitments and recommendations to strengthen the development of culture on an international scale from the local arena, considering it as a collective right to participation in the life of societies."
Canada's Local Agenda 21
, "Indigenous peoples represent a significant part of the world's population with unique contributions to make to the achievement of the goals of Agenda 21, based on ways of life directly dependent on the utilization of wild living resources. Indigenous peoples have evolved a holistic, traditional scientific knowledge of the land, natural resources and environment they interact with and depend on to maintain their well-being."
U.N. Local Agenda 21 is not a local or grassroots movement of an evolving, holistic, more moral humanity, no matter what evolved British-Israeli or Fabian scholars tell us. Local Agenda 21 is a top-down global-government program created by the U.S. in collaboration with communist and imperialist governments. Agenda 21 will over-rule national and state constitutions.

Civil Society aims described by the World Federalist Association of Northern California: This worldwide organization has a 2020 Global Peace Initiative whose aim is to create a culture of Peace by the year 2020. "This Initiative reflects a global vision of unity: one heart, one mind, working toward one goal. We are many races which form One race: the human race. Each and every one of us has a different place we call home: but ultimately this planet is our Home. While the name 2020 is symbolic, thereby working with and reinforcing positive mass conscious thought forms, it has also been chosen as a practical time-frame for humanity to work towards creating a culture of Peace. Princeton University's 'Great Experiment' which relates to measurement of emotion and directed thought appears to support what metaphysicians have claimed for years: our thoughts impact our reality. The 2020 Initiative calls on UN member-states and non member-states to support the 2020 Initiative through action, specifically:
2. Formulating a global constitution supporting this Initiative, 3. Opening the borders-i.e. allowing free movement and residence of all Beings."
Taskforce for Change- this organization appeals entirely to emotive reasoning and like all the rest of these Hegelian change NGO's, their bottom line is to "Endorse a global plan that supports country programs including the transportation, law enforcement, urban planning, and public health sectors."
International University for Human Transformation "As a part of personality development, counselling sessions are conducted regularly for the students who are selected through a system based on proactive approach of identification of potential counselling needs. Graphological Analysis, Personality Analysis and Standard Psychometric Tests are used as tools by the counsellors to get the holistic perspective about the potential users."
ISPO: From Globalization to Sustainability-A New Global Policy for Social Justice. The Imperial British plans to "restore" global democracy takes many forms, and this organization is going to convince us all to elect politicians who will simultaneously implement their sustainable agenda. Like most of the British programs for "world peace and social justice", ISOP has the support of many well educated academics, including Noam Chomsky.
The Alan Savory Center for Holistic Management. "Holistic Management enables you to improve the quality of your life while enhancing the environment that sustains us all. And it's all based on a simple change in the way you make decisions. Holistic Management gives you a practical way to develop a clear, focused vision for your future, and enables you to plan how to get there in the most economically, environmentally and socially sound way." In what dictionary did they find this lovely terminology?
"A leading American feminist and human rights activist, Bella Abzug (1920-1988) [pictured right] served in Congress from 1970 to 1976. In the years that followed, she headed the National Advisory Committee on Women, founded Women, USA, and co-founded the Women's Environment and Development Organization."
Women's Rights in A Global Context by Margaret A. McLaren, Rollins College 2005 Conference Papers. "Communitarian feminist critiques echo some of these concerns, but focus more on the issues of identity and community and their significance in our lives."
Update December 22, 2005 -- ACL research has been viewed by thousands of visitors from all over the world. Not one person has ever provided contrary evidence that this global blueprint for local sustainable "community development" does not really exist. Searches for the term "Agenda 21" have increased tenfold in the past year. Our research is a topic at many forums, and the above passage has been pasted on numerous American discussion boards. "Has anybody heard of Agenda 21?" is the most common opening comment. In some groups no one ever responds to the question. When there's a "skeptic" they all use the same basic idiotic response. Name-calling is frequently used to shut down any further civilized discussion. Ad hominem slander like "This is a hamhanded conglomeration of Black Helicopter lore, Bircherite phantasmagoria, and political illiteracy. With maybe a little Illuminati and Elders of Zion thrown in," is a typical communitarian response to a valid inquiry. "I'm a novice in international politics," or "No, I have never heard of it," would be too illuminating for non-adepts. For good examples of communitarian environmental law, see: European Environmental Law-Communitarian legislation (directive 94/62/EC, and related commission decisions) and pdf-Harmonization and harmonizing measures in criminal law (which explains: "The European Commission points out that there is a considerable body of communitarian environmental law, and that Member States are obliged to provide for effective, dissuasive and proportionate sanctions.") Please send your local-to-national resistance links, valid commentary, or referenced rebuttals to email@example.com.

EPA Green Communities: How Do We Get There? - Case Studies explains the role of Sustainable Seattle in implementing Seattle's Local Agenda 21 plan. Rethinking Environmental Impact Statements
by Tom Angotti, July, 2004, Gotham Gazette. "Overhaul of the environmental review system is long overdue. Even more importantly, city government needs to develop a broad environmental planning framework that looks at long-term multi-generational indicators of environmental quality -- such as Seattle's Agenda 21."
