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 wonâ€™t read detailed reports or watch long videos. â€œCan you give us something that is quick, and easy to read that we can hand out,â€ Iâ€™m asked.
So here it is. A one page, quick description of Agenda 21 that fits on one page. Iâ€™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. Thatâ€™s how it must be done. The information below is only your first step. Happy hunting.
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 â€œto benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment.â€ 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 governmentâ€™s power of Eminent Domain to implement sustainable policy. Government-sanctioned monopolies.
