WOW! So proud of my fellow Tulsans in the 9.12 Project for offering this important symposium. There are two sides to what I think of as Agenda 21 – two separate entities, joined at the hip: Agenda 21 and ICLEI “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives.” In July 2011, Tulsa showed up as a “Local Government for Sustainability USA.” At that time, we were the only city listed under ‘Oklahoma,’ however, this article dated October 2011 is a “welcome” to Oklahoma City as ICLEI’s 600th member. Today, the site shows no Oklahoma membership. Today I’ve found a separate city membership page, and the State of Oklahoma continues to shows no participation – but friends, it once took root, and due to citizen participation, has apparently been uprooted. UPDATE: Nebraska Energy Observer has appalling information on what has happened to a man living on his own property – a wilderness property – and what the feds have done to him. I hope you will read it. A comment is made there that chills to the bone: “Nobody in America, ever again, is going to be left alone. Not ever.”
9.12 Project is holding a symposium to learn about the devastating and corrupt effects of Agenda 21 and their tentacles.
Understanding Agenda 21 – A Symposium
Date: April 5th and 6th, 2013
Location: Tulsa Marriott Southern Hills – 1902 E. 71st Street
Just a few days ago the Oklahoma State House passed legislation to ban Agenda 21 in the state:
Following Alabama’s lead, lawmakers in the Oklahoma House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly to approve popular legislation protecting private-property rights and banning a controversial United Nations “sustainable development” scheme known as Agenda 21, which critics say represents a serious threat to American values and liberty. If approved by the Senate as expected, the law would also prohibit state and local governments from working with the UN or its affiliates to implement any sort of “international law” that violates the U.S. or Oklahoma constitutions.
The bill, H.B. 1412, was passed in the state House last week on a bipartisan vote, with a Republican-led coalition of 67 supporting the legislation against 17 Democrats who opposed the measure. It originally passed out of the States’ Rights Committee in late February and is now in the state Senate, where a broad coalition of activists — supporters of national sovereignty, private property, the Constitution, individual liberty, Tea Party groups, and more — is working to ensure its passage.
Of course, Oklahoma is just the latest state to take action against the highly controversial UN plan, which calls for a transformation of human civilization under the guise of promoting so-called “sustainability.” In May of last year, Alabama became the first state to officially ban UN Agenda 21 after a law to protect private property and due process rights was signed by Gov. Robert Bentley. The wildly popular bi-partisan legislation was approved unanimously in both houses of the state legislature.
Before that, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle in Tennessee adopted a resolution blasting the dubious UN agenda as a radical “socialist” plot at odds with individual liberty, private-property rights, and the U.S. Constitution. Lawmakers in Kansas followed suit. Numerous other state governments, under heavy pressure from activists across the political spectrum, are also working to ban the “sustainable development” scheme in their jurisdictions. City and county governments, meanwhile, are taking action to protect residents, too. Source: New American
I have not located a list of U.S. member states, and that may be because ICLEI is the local government arm of such membership. The U.S. is a signatory to Agenda 21 but it is not a treaty and as such, Congress did not have the opportunity to vote for or against. The Republican National Committee (RNC) opposes Agenda 21 and the Oklahoma Republican Platform does the same.
Apparently Oklahoma City and Edmond joined ICLEI and have now dropped their membership. In 2011, this site questioned Oklahoma City’s lack of public announcement of a separation from Agenda 21.
Whatever the reason for Oklahoma City’s departure from ICLEI, the city is not yet in the clear.
Semands pointed to the Consolidated Issues Statement, produced by Plan OKC –Oklahoma City’s comprehensive plan for sustainable development.
“Their comprehensive plan is still very Agenda 21 orientated,” said Semands upon making a cursory exanimation of the document comparing the language with that used by Agenda 21. (read specific examples here)
