A World of No Privacy. Here is a final clue. But at the same time, why should these kinds of texts be so hard to come by? A dozen of the 14 compounds were still as potent as they were when they were manufactured, some at almost percent of their labeled concentrations. Who knows what the facts really are when vested interests probably want to keep confusion rank. The product needs to be sent back for comprehensive long term studies looking into the effects of its chemical residues and metabolites on animals and humans" Radiation from imaging tests There are wide-ranging benefits to the use of modern X-ray imaging technology, which uses radiation to generate images of
Solution: Get Informed Before You Demonstrate
The experiments must not be used as an excuse to weaken regulation of GE or to push through environmental release of other GMOs in New Zealand Using AgResearch's own records, the report catalogues a sad and profoundly disturbing story that has characterised the genetic engineering GE trials. The surrogate and transgenic cows suffer from chronic illness, reproductive losses, sudden unexplained deaths, and severe deformities Guyon Espiner talks to Claire Bleakley about the report.
David Wells response to the report. By agreeing to the Trans Pacific Partnership's conditions to eliminate restrictive policies and to promote reforms limiting the timeframes allowed for restrictions on food exports, New Zealand could be pushed into compromising our zero tolerance for genetically engineered GE seeds for cultivation The US Appeal court has cancelled the approval for the Dow Agrosciences chemical Sulfoxaflor, a neonicotinoid, as it is highly toxic to bees.
We call on the EPA to follow the US directive and immediately remove all Sulfoxaflor neonicotinoids from use and cancel their registration It will only open the public up to a toxic chemical overload.
We as parents need to take control of the food we eat and learn how we can affect change in our own lives, and those of our children," It's time that industry, farmers and local government stopped deluding themselves with a blind assumption that glyphosate based herbicides are safe.
New Zealanders are supporting an international vigil against release of GE trees at The shift away is due to reasons of high cost, poor performance, growing weed resistance and the development of resistance in insect pests. Gilles-Eric Seralini, and Prof. GE Free NZ is a major supporter of this conference.
Celebrate the year of NZ is still GE Free in its farming environment! Have a happy Organic, pesticide free,. Beware processed foods and meat products. GE varieties and are showing harm to health.
In some areas deformities are now commonplace. It is not ethical for us to be supporting the farming of biotech death crops The independent studies and farmers' reports that show harm have been ignored or denigrated by the FSANZ officials.
It will destroy the competitive point of difference that helps New Zealand exporters thrive. The TPPA looks like being the ultimate betrayal of New Zealand farmers and food exporters to overseas corporate interests," GE-free adds value and is a key part of lifting New Zealand products above commodity-status, which Fonterra and other food exporters are seeking. Huber will be discussing: Be involved in building a thriving economy guaranteeing safe nutritional food production.
However, increasingly seeds are becoming a trade commodity manipulated by Corporate patents for control of the food economy. The animal grazing pastures should not be left to be decided by agrochemical companies who have little interest in animal health and benefit from the use of large amounts of toxic chemicals.
Consumers are angry at the way the MPI are turning a blind eye to the deleterious effects of imported pesticide-laden GE animal foods The Ecologist report on Argentina. This will protect our biosecurity, our unique biodiversity, our existing non-GE primary producers, our economy and the public health from the risks of outdoor use of GMOs.
Submissions close Tuesday 9 September Allowing the loss of this scientific expertise is short-sighted, and shows AgResearch is failing to focus on science that suits New Zealand's unique positioning as a producer of safe, clean, GE-free food that sets the standard for quality Federated Farmers should heed that advice if it really has the interests of the farming community at heart.
New Zealand's reputation as a producer of safe, clean food will be destroyed by a handful of farmers deciding to use GE crops.
Disputes between farmers over liability for lost exports have become an urgent concern following the court case between organic farmer Steve Marsh and his neighbour.
The decision has caused shock waves around the World as it highlights the inability of non GE and GE crops to co-exist and the lack of redress and severe loss of livelihood that GE crops can cause to the polluted The preservation of New Zealand's biosecurity and existing valuable GE-free status must be at the heart of decision-making The findings have implications for 82 genetically engineered foods approved into the New Zealand food chain.
All these are tolerant to one or more herbicides named in the latest study by Schinasi and Leon as being linked to cancers. T hough the debate left many statements unchallenged, there was general surprise that common assumptions that GE foods are safe are not based on published data A submission by Bio: The announcement by AgResearch that they are seeking in the near future to field test GE fodder crops that will contain high levels of "blockbuster" traits, is short sighted and poses a threat to farmers and exporters New Zealand's and Australia's approval process for new GE foods has descended into a farce.
Crops that are not even authorised to be grown overseas are getting rubber-stamped as safe These bodies are being derelict in their duty of care to protect public health. They are in essence deliberately endangering consumers by forcing them to eat unsafe, unlabelled GE food. This precaution is supported by USDA experts who now admit that GM-free production will be made impossible and that co-existence is just a myth. The Environment Court decision recently released has upheld the right for the Bay of Plenty Regional Council , in its Regional Policy statement, to place wording for a precautionary approach to be taken on the growing of genetically modified GMO crops in the region The Minister must not be lulled into believing the product has been proven safe when it has not.
So too will the solutions, that are important in showing the way forward, for sustainably meeting the needs of future generations through agriculture. Jeffrey Smith is only in New Zealand for two talks. There is strong public support for protecting GE-free production in New Zealand, as scientists debate the growing evidence of safety risks from GE Farmers should be wary of promises of a 'magic bullet' made by Crown Research Institutes seeking funding for developing genetically engineered GE forage pastures.
The expert group dismisses claims by industry that GE foods are proven safe. New Zealand must preserve its GE Free food productions systems that do not suffer from these micronutrient deficiencies and will support better health, fewer child deaths and an increased future potential Securing New Zealand's production of seed and access to imported seed, should be a national priority but the Government must develop a long term strategy.
To draw attention to the issue and to mark global Freedom Seed and Safe Food month, night guerilla gardens have sprung up overnight in disused plots as a celebration of 'open source' seed developed by communities over millennia The McGuiness Insitute report is a warning to producers, exporters and government that New Zealand must not be denied the advantages to our future economy of our GM-free food production system.
Producers in New Zealand are facing a loss of control over what they grow because of the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement TPPA ,  that will restrict the ability for New Zealand to set our own laws around safe food, water and environmental standards Once released the burden of problems arising from commercialised GMOs that have 'gone wrong' will fall to the very communities about to be disenfranchised by changes to the RMA," said Jon Carapiet. There are concerns that plans by AgResearch for downsizing and consolidation of their business into two hubs will leave experimental GE animals in limbo, or see them shipped to other locations thereby putting more rural land at risk of contamination.
AgResearch's Ruakura site has been the location of a series of failed transgenic animal experiments on cows and goats The Supreme Court's Technical Expert Panel of scientists from top public research laboratories and academic institutions found major gaps in their regulatory system that have been the subject of warnings in submissions by New Zealand scientists. Responding to a request under the Official Information Act, Minister Nicky Kaye failed to provide any evidence of safety when approving the new GE food that contains high levels of 2,4-D.
For this to happen New Zealand must avoid the threat from monocultures, GE contamination, and corruption of government policy and move to sustainable, climate-smart, low pesticide resilient farming methods based on ecological systems-thinking" Councils must keep faith with their communities and resist central government bullying tactics, especially as central government has refused to hold GMO-users liable, so exposing ratepayers to potential costs.
GE-Free New Zealand members, many communities and growers around the country are alarmed over the Environment Minister Amy Adams plans to remove any capacity for Councils and communities to safeguard their region. The petition asks the Minister to: Enforcement and full labelling of all foods made using GE techniques including processed products such as: Removal of exemptions from GE labelling requirements in Food Standard 1.
Japanese authorities have canceled a US wheat order, other major wheat importers South Korea, China and the Philippines are also monitoring the situation. Two thousand people in the 14 cities over New Zealand showed yesterday what they thought of GE. Auckland March Against Monsanto. Christchurch March Against Monsanto. March Against Monsanto Seattle. March Against Monsanto Oslo Norway. There are 14 cities all over New Zealand and up to cities in 52 Countries around the World participating in the "March against Monsanto".
It is time that questions about the possible effects of GE ingredients in infant formula are answered by food safety officials. The food chain faces the threat of chemicals that are banned in other countries and that are dangerous. It is unacceptable that major 'commercial' risks are being underwritten by the public under the HSNO Act.
Universities and Crown Research Institutes get the financial benefits of contracts based on socialising the risks of GMOs and externalising costs. By following the direction of officers the Hearings committee has worked counter to the community interest.
Auckland Council has been slammed for not consulting with Maori on draft proposals to prohibit GMO release, even though representatives from the Independent Statutory Maori Board refused to propose a motion for consultation to take place. The Minister must be warned that she lacks vital information to justify any approval of this new level of chemical toxicity in the food chain. The public also has the right to know what they will be eating Senior officers at Auckland Council have undue sway on information and processes that weakens local democracy and impacts the access councillors have to key documents.
Yet officers have failed to properly brief their own staff or elected representatives about councils' 8-year consultation and best-practice plans process It is no good relying on industry studies: The FDA decision has caused alarm in the United States because the GE fish could be sold without any safety testing and would not be labelled, leaving consumers 'none the wiser'.
GE-Free NZ in food and environment has written an urgent request for information to Kate Wilkinson - Minister for food safety, seeking guarantees that the New Zealand government will require feeding trials be conducted to prove food safety before the GE salmon can be considered for sale here.
Ideas for Holiday eating go to www. Organically certified foods are guaranteed to be GE Free. This deal is a dangerous and unprecedented move. However, over and above the biosecurity concern is the issue of brand integrity and safe food reputation," says Jon Carapiet This food has never been tested, but other feeding studies on animals have shown the potential for serious organ and reproductive problems and a high incidence of death.
The re-election of President Obama provides a second chance for him to deliver on his past promises to label GE foods. He must restore safety and integrity to the whole US food chain. The Interim Report unanimously presented its view that all field trials should be stopped in India until:.
The lack of any animal feeding studies on a GE soybean designed to survive spraying with a cocktail of herbicides, will leave the public no better than lab rats unless the approval is immediately stopped. Until officials adopt the necessary testing and safety standards they should not be accepting this or similar applications," says Jon Carapiet more Doubt is exactly what you don't want when it comes to building New Zealand's position in the world market.
Regulators appear to have a double standard of accepting GM company science without comment but fiercely attacking independent science that is published in peer-reviewed journals, whenever it contradicts their pre-conceived view of safety. For further comment contact: Claire Bleakley Melbourne: Fran Murrell or Perth: Jessica Harrison Researchers that stoop so low as to manipulate the Mauri of an animal causing suffering, then pretend that this is a significant breakthrough when we already have business using technology to remove BLG, are inhumane".
FSANZ assessors have shown that they are highly conflicted. Their subjective opinions not objectivity, drive their approach to science and they are not open to considering the dangers of GE foods The Board of FSANZ should resign in light of their repeated failure to consider public health that might arise from the results of Seralini's long-term scientific feeding studies , dramatically improve their regulation and immediately recall all GE RoundUp Ready resistant foods.
Professor Jack Heinemann and Associate Professor Judy Carman, released an expert report evaluating the risks associated with the use of RNA molecules in genetically engineered wheat.
Delegates to AgBio in Rotorua are being urged to reject the extremes of commercialised science and navigate the middle path for non-GE biotechnology in New Zealand. Contrary to claims made by companies pushing their GE products, there are alternatives already identified that can double food production in the developing world His findings were unable to differentiate between natural selection of plant breeding and laboratory transgenics GE of plants," says Claire Bleakley.
These basic assumptions are now highly doubtful, which means the data is unreliable and could likely mislead decision-makers," says Jon Carapiet, spokesman for GE-Free NZ in food and environment. The research is also totally blind to Brand marketing: It is an embarrassment that keynote speakers at an upcoming AgBio conference in Rotorua are from companies facing criminal charges and which are already embroiled in a bitter war with each other as well as against natural ecosystems.
Maori have long held values around food that are shared by people around the world. The AgBio conference in Rotorua must be told to reject unethical and extreme uses of gene science that are already occurring, and to protect the choice for organic and GE-free production for future generations The risks of increasing levels of pesticides in imported food produced with genetic engineering GE technology cannot be ignored, after one study found pesticide use had trebled since This means production that is free of herbicide and insecticide- laden GMO foods that cause serious endocrine effects.
Julie Newman and Bob Mackley, the two speakers in this GE tour have experienced first-hand the effects that the release of GE crops have had on their communities and businesses. They will cover the issues of liability and co-existence for organic and non-GM farmers. It is not known which type of GE corn is being used, and there is no official monitoring to require it be listed on the label," says Jon Carapiet from GE Free NZ in food and environment Consumers are being left in the dark about increasing levels of pesticides used in GE foods, as authorities quietly rubber-stamp an even wider range of chemical tolerant GE foods for entry into the food chain.
The Environmental Protection Agency EPA held its first hearing on GE to consider a plan to leave company managers overseeing their own biosecurity compliance, but the applicants are irresponsible in not mentioning serious breaches of biosecurity that have happened before. UK scientists who are themselves genetic engineers, have published a review of research into GMOs and warned against believing claims made for their benefits and safety.
The warning comes just days after it was revealed that biotechnology company Syngenta had deliberately hidden the death of animals that had been fed one of its GE products. Food derived from such products will inevitably receive approval, as every previous application has, making a mockery of the regulatory process.
GE-Free NZ is calling for urgent follow-up on animal evidence that points to a strong possibility that there could be adverse effects in unborn children from GE soya in the maternal diet. The emergence of herbicide-resistant weeds as a result of planting genetically engineered crops is costing farmers dearly and shows the benefits of New Zealand's GE-free status.
Incompetent running of a long-term GE trial which has the potential to pollute the soil, kill insects and cause damage to the surrounding Kaingaroa forest, demands a halt to GE trials in the open environment.
The national interest must not be undermined by the commercial partners and government agencies with biotech interests choosing where to funnel public money for science and innovation The US is facing significant problems from its deregulation of GE crops, and other countries are taking positive action after learning from their mistakes" says Claire Bleakley He has written over scientific articles and conference papers for International specialist symposiums on food safety.
Seralini has been the most published in the world in scientific peer reviewed papers on pesticides and their use in association with GMO's on health of animals and humans This is in stark contrast to GE grown crops that have unstable yields and are laden with insecticidal toxins and heavily sprayed with herbicides that affect reproduction and the endocrine system" New Zealand's Minister of Health would be doing the right thing for Public Health and the integrity of the food system by voting for the labelling of GM food, when she attends the trans-Tasman meeting this Friday The product needs to be sent back for comprehensive long term studies looking into the effects of its chemical residues and metabolites on animals and humans" Infomation about the TPP agreement is to remain secret for four years, but there are strong signals that the agreement will lead to a loss of sovereignty over issues that directly affect every New Zealander.
Consumers all over the world care about safe, GM-free, natural, organic, sustainable and ethical food production. Consumer concern about safety of GE foods is the hands of supermarket owners. The spin being pushed by the New Zealand Science Media Centre is obscurification of important debates in science. The sustainability movement is relentlessly attacking property rights and freedoms Lie: Climate change is catastrophic and anthropogenic and must be addressed through C02 abatement schemes Reality: Man made climate change is a hoax with numerous provable data points and thousands of scientists going on the record - which is ignored by the cabal-controlled mainstream media Lie: Compact development reduces pollution Reality: Dense development is always correlated with intense pollution levels Lie: Subways and mass transit can replace cars Reality: If they could there would be no cars in Manhattan Lie: Compact urban development is more affordable for government Reality: Empirical evidence proves compace development requires higher tax rates.
Urbanisation strains police, fire, educational and social services Lie: Afforable housing for people of all income levels will ensure healthier better balanced neighbourhoods Reality: Low income housing usually creates more problems than it solves thereby damaging communities.
The Sustainablists insist that society be transformed into feudal-like governance by making Nature the central organizing principle for our economy and society, not human need or wants. This idea essentially elevates nature above Humans [we are all on this planet, their premise is bullshit]. As such, every societal decision would first be questioned as to how it might effect the environment. To achieve this, Sustainablist policy focuses on three components; land use, education, and population control and population reduction.
Some officials claim that Sustainable Development is just a local effort to protect the environment and contain development -- just your local leaders putting together a local vision for the community. Yet, the exact language and tactics for implementation of Sustainable Development are being used in nearly every city around the globe from Lewiston, Maine to Singapore. In short, Sustainable Development is the process by which the world is being reorganized around a central principle of state collectivism using the environment as bai t.
One of the best ways to understand what Sustainable Development actually is can be found by discovering what is NOT sustainable. Ski fields Grazing of livestock Plowing of soil Building fences Industry Single family homes Paved and tarred roads Logging activities Dams and reservoirs Power line construction Economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment capitalism, free markets.
They are all part of the efforts to modify consumer behavior to accept less, deal with higher energy prices, restrict water use and place severe limitations on use of private property — all under the environmental excuse.
That makes it easy for any activist group to issue concerns or warnings by news release or questionable report against and industry or private activity, and have those warnings quickly turned into public policy — just in case. Many are now finding non-elected regional governments and governing councils enforcing policy and regulations. As these policies are implemented, locallyelected officials are actually losing their own power and decision-making ability in their elected offices.
What Sustainable Development Really Means For You The Three E's 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.
The Sustainable Development logo used in most literature on the subject contains three connecting circles labeled along the lines of Social Equity; Economic Prosperity; and Ecological Integrity known commonly as the 3 E's.
It is a social injustice to keep our borders closed. It is a social injustice for some to be bosses and others to be merely workers. Social justice is a major premise of Sustainable Development. Another word for social justice is Socialism or Marxism. Today, the phrase is used throughout Sustainablist literature. So too, is business ownership. Under Sustainable Development individual human wants, needs, and desires are to be conformed to the views and dictates of social planners.
That the wealth of the world was made at the expense of the poor. It dictates that, if the conditions of the poor are to be improved, wealth must first be taken from the rich.
In the free-market of the past, most businesses were started by individuals who saw a need for a product or service and they set out to fill it. Most business owners were happy to be left alone to take their chances to run their businesses on their own, not encumbered by a multiplicity of government regulations. If they failed, most found a way to try again. In order to give themselves an advantage over competition, some businesses -- particularly large corporations — now find a great advantage in dealing directly with government, actively lobbying for legislation that will inundate smaller companies with regulations that they cannot possibly comply with or even keep up with.
If the two should ever become combined, control of such massive power can lead only to tyranny. It definitely does not mean people and companies trading freely with each other. Its real effect is to redistribute manufacturing, wealth, and jobs out of our borders and to lock away natural resources.
They in turn are partnered with the politicians who use their legislative and administrative powers to raid the treasury to fund and enforce the scheme. Of course, as the chosen corporations, which become a new elite, stamp out the need for competition through government power, the real loser is the consumers who no longer count in market decisions. Government grants are now being used by industry to create mandated green products like wind and solar power.
Products are put on the market at little risk to the industry, leaving consumers a more limited selection from which to choose. True free markets are eliminated in favor of controlled economies which dictate the availability and quality of products.
This quote lays down the ground rules for the entire Sustainable Development agenda. It says humans are nothing special — just one strand in the nature of things or, put another way, humans are simply biological resources.
Funny that, the Cabal see us as "Human Resources" also. Sustainablist policy is to oversee any issue in which man interacts with nature — which, of course, is literally everything. And because the environment always comes first, there must be great restrictions over private property ownership and control. This is necessary, Sustainablists say, because humans only defile nature. Under Sustainable Development there can be no concern over individual rights. Individual human wants, needs, and desires are conformed to the views and dictates of social planners.
Under Sustainable Development, limited government, as advocated by our Founding Fathers, is impossible because, we are told, the real or perceived environmental crisis is too great. Only government can be trusted to respond. The politically based environmental movement provides Sustainablists camouflage as they work to transform systems of government, justice, and economics.
It is a masterful mixture of socialism with its top down control of the tools of the economy and fascism where property is owned in name only — with no individual owner control. Sustainable Development is the worst of both the left and the right. It is not liberal, nor is it conservative. It is a new kind of tyranny that, if not stopped, will surely lead us to a new Dark Ages of pain and misery yet unknown to mankind. Private land ownership is also a principle instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore, contributers to social injustice.
The Nature Conservancy Jay D. With great fanfare the Council issued a comprehensive report containing all the guidelines on how our government was to be reinvented under sustainable development.
Those guidelines were created to direct policy for every single federal agency, state government and local community government. Their purpose was to translate the recommendations set forth in Agenda 21 into public policy administered by the federal government.
There are four very specific routes being used. It is a diabolical plan to herd humans off the rural lands and into human settlements. But how do you remove people from the land? One step at a time. A national park will do. A huge place where there is no human activity. For example, Yellowstone National Park, devoid of human habitation can serve as its center.
Then a buffer zone is established around the reserve. Inside the buffer only limited human activity is allowed. Slowly, through strict regulations, that area is squeezed until human activity becomes impossible. Once that is accomplished, the biosphere is extended to the former buffer zone borders — and then a new buffer zone is created around the now-larger biosphere and the process starts again.
In that way, the Biosphere Reserve acts like a cancer cell, ever expanding, until all human activity is stopped. And there are many tools in place to stop human activity and grow the reserve. Lock away natural resources by creating national parks. It shuts down the mines -- and they go out of business. Shut off the forest. Locking away land cuts the tax base. Eventually the town dies. Keep it up and there is nothing to keep the people on the land — so they head to the cities.
The wilderness grows — just like Dave Foreman planned. It comes in many names and many programs. Heritage areas, land management, wolf and bear reintroduction, rails to trails, conservation easements, open space , and many more. Each of these programs is designed to make it just a little harder to live on the land — a little more expensive — a little more hopeless, literally herding people off their land and into designated human habitat areas — cities.
In the West, where vast areas of open space make it easy to impose such polices there are several programs underway to remove humans from the land.
The Alaska Wildlands Project seeks to lock away and control almost the entire state. How Did We Get Here? Smart Growth The second path is called Smart Growth. The process essentially puts a line around a city, locking off any growth outside that line. Inside the circle, concerted efforts are made to discourage the use of cars in preference to public transportation, restricting mobility. Because there is a restriction on space inside the controlled city limits, there is a created shortage of land and houses, so prices go up.
That means populations will have to be controlled, because now there is no room to contain more people. Those not in compliance will be fined and will not be able to sell their homes. Homeowners will not have control of such meters. Instead, the electric company will determine the necessary temperature inside each home.
Government agencies or local policy boards will be tasked with the responsibility to conduct an energy audit in each home to determine the steps necessary to bring the home into energy compliance. Not So Smart Technology: Safety Inspector Blows The Whistle On Fire Hazards Of 'Smart' Electronics The Cap N Trade bill contains a whole section on such restrictions for the nation, and most local communities are now busy creating development plans that encompass many of the same restrictions. There is now a new push to control food production under the label of Sustainable Farming.
Food sheds are now being advocated. These are essentially government run farms located just outside the smart growth area circling the city. Food is to be grown using strict guidelines which dictate what kinds of food is to be produced and the farming practices to be used. These are essentially based on the blue print of Chinese Agrarian villages that cannot possibly grow enough food to feed the community unless populations are tightly controlled.
True Sustainable farming programs discourage importing goods from outside the community. Stake Holder Councils Inside the cities, government is increasingly controlled by an elite ruling class called stake holder councils. These are mostly Non-governmental organizations, or NGOs, which, like thieves in the night, converge on the community to stake their claim to enforce their own private agendas.
The function of legitimately — elected government within the system votes to create a system of boards, councils and even regional governments to handle every aspect of day-to-day operation of the community. Once in place, the councils and boards basically replace the power of elected officials with non-elected, appointed rulers answerable to no one.
The councils are controlled by a small minority in the community, but they are all - powerful. They force citizens to seek permission usually denied for any changes to private property.
They use such excuses as historic preservation, water use restrictions, energy use, and open space restrictions. They over-burden or even destroy business, creating stiff regulations on manufacturing and small business in the community. They may dictate the number of outlets a business may have in a community, not matter what the population demands. For example, in San Francisco there can only be seven McDonalds.
They can dictate the kind of building materials owners can use in their private home — or whether one can build on their property at all. Then, if they do grant a permit for building, they might not decide to let the property owner acquire water and electricity for the new home — and they may or may not give you a reason for being turned down.
As part of Sustainable health care, they may even dictate that you get the proper exercise — as determined by the government. Again, San Francisco has built a new federal building — the greenest ever built.
The elevators will only stop on every third floor so riders are forced to use stairs — for their own health, of course. These councils fit almost perfectly the definition of a State Soviet: Soviets are the operating mechanism of a government-controlled economy. US EPA drives industries overseas where the pollution increases EPA embraces ethanol while blaming farming for pollution Master plans across America overtly ignore property rights Environmental nooses rob property rights and individual freedoms based on unsettled science, distorted statistics and exaggerated predictions Focus on Social Equity eclipsing life-liberty property Why?
Municipal master plans have become manifestos People in tears across America. There are certain areas where private business contracts to do jobs such as running school cafeterias through a competitive bid system. That type of arrangement certain does serve the tax payers and provides better services.
In truth, many PPPs are nothing more than government-sanctioned monopolies in which a few businesses are granted special favors like tax breaks, the power of eminent domain, non-compete clauses and specific guarantees for return on their investments.
That means they can fix prices, charge beyond what the market demands, and they can use the power of government to put competition out of business. That is not free enterprise. And it is these global corporations that are pushing the green agenda. If you can stomach reading this horse shit, click on the image above PPPs were the driving force behind the Trans Texas Corridor, using eminent domain to take more than , acres of private land - sanctioned by the partnership with the Texas government.
And PPPs are taking over highways and local water treatment plants in communities across the nation. PPPs in control of the water system can control water consumption — a major part of the Sustainable Development blueprint. For its part of the partnership, government passed regulations that keep gas prices high to make them more inviting. The federal government has entered into many partnerships with alternative energy companies in a move to force wind power and solar power on an uninterested public.
Again, such industries only exist though the power and of government determined to enforce a certain political agenda. They would never survive in an honest free market. Using government to ban its own product, General Electric is forcing the mercury- laden green light bulb, costing 5 times the price of incandescent bulbs.
Such is the reality of green industry, which depends more on government subsidy and grants than on customers. To play ball in the PPP game means accepting the mantra of Sustainable Development and helping to implement it, even if it means going against your own product.
It is not free enterprise, but a Mussolini-type fascism of government and private industry organized in a near impenetrable force of power. Prevent harm as the best method of environmental protection and, when knowledge is limited, apply a precautionary approach. Communitarianism with forced sterilization? Eradicate poverty as an ethical, social, and environmental imperative.
Ensure that economic activities and institutions at all levels promote human development in an equitable and sustainable manner. Affirm gender equality and equity as prerequisites to sustainable development and ensure universal access to education, health care , and economic opportunity. Integrate into formal education and life-long learning the knowledge, values, and skills needed for a sustainable way of life. What Kinds of Groups Promote this in the U. Many people ask how dangerous international policies can suddenly turn up in state and local government, all seemingly uniform to those in communities across the nation and around the globe.
The answer — meet ICLEI, a non-profit, private foundation, dedicated to helping locally elected representatives fully implement Agenda 21 in the community. Currently there are over American cities in which ICLEI is being paid dues with tax dollars from city councils to implement and enforce Sustainable Development. ICLEI is there to assure that the mayors keep their promises and meet their goals. Using environmental protection as the excuse, these programs are about reinventing government with a specific political agenda.
ICLEI and others are dedicated to transforming every community in the nation to the Agenda 21 blueprint. They know that Congress has written legislation providing grants for cities that implement Sustainablist policy. They agitate to get the cities to accept the grants.
In the end, through such tactics, the NGOs usually get their way. IN fact there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of non-profits, NGOs and planning groups living off the grant money, working to enforce Sustainable Development policy at every level of government. Business as usual will not suffice. Growe food for local consumption Starve the world? Create city-funded housing repair programs Transportation 4: It came into being in and can be found in literally every community in the nation.
It is the planning guide preferred by most urban and regional planners. Christchurch, New Zealand ICMA provides technical and management assistance, training, and information resources in the areas of performance measurement, ethics education and training, community and economic development, environmental management, technology, and other topics to its members and the broader local government community.
They are aided in their efforts through such as the U. Conference of Mayors, National Governors Association, National League of Cities, the National Association of County Administrators and several more groups that are supposed to represent elected officials. The Renaissance Planning Group is an urban planning firm.
Florida Forever is the largest public land acquisition program of its kind in the United States. Propaganda from idiots for idiots In , the Virginia state legislature passed HB mandating that counties with the prescribed growth rate establish high density urban development areas.
This requirement by the state forces local governments to compromise your private property through zoning measures called for in the Smart Growth program for sustainable development. The American Farmland Trust AFT formed in , works to acquire and control farmer development rights and the purchase of Agriculture Easements which drastically reduce, if not eliminate private ownership of the land.
That is simply the excuse for the policies being implemented in its name. The comprehensive land use plans are being steered by planning groups through manipulation by facilitated stakeholder consensus councils.
The predetermined outcome severely restricts land use and compromises private property ownership in an already distressed market. They answer to no one and they are run by zealots with their own political agenda imposing international laws and regulations.
Local homeowners have no say in the process and in most cases are shut out. Sometimes they are literally thrown out of council meetings because they want to discuss how a regulation is going to affect their property or livelihood. Communities have dealt with local problems for years. But locally elected town councils and commissioners, which meet and discuss problems with the citizens, are how this nation was built and prospered.
No matter where you live, rest assured Agenda 21 policies are being implemented in your community. It is about establishing global governance and abandoning the principles of Natural Law on which America was founded. The politically-based environmental movement provides Sustainablists camouflage as they work to transform global systems of government, justice, and economics.
It is bad policy pushed by both liberal and conservatives. It is a new kind of tyranny that, if not stopped, will surely lead all human kind to a new Dark Ages of pain and misery. What has Sustainability Become? Unfortunately, the environmental movement has been hijacked as a convenient excuse to attack capitalism; blame America; transfer wealth; impinge on Constitutional rights; and install a government-run socio-economic system.
Capitalism and private property rights are not sustainable, and pose the single greatest threat to the world's ecosystem and social equity. It comes wrapped in a plain green package labelled "Smart Growth" or "Sustainability": To begin the effort to fight back against Sustainable Development it is vital to first understand the massive structure you are facing.
You need to know who the players are and you need to understand the political world your officials are operating in. In most communities, you mayor, city council members and county commissioners are automatically members of national organizations like the National Conference of Mayors, National League of Cities, and the national associations for city council members, and the same for commissioners.
Those in the state government also have the National Governors Association and state legislators have their national organization. For the past twenty years or more, each and every one of these national organizations have been promoting Sustainable Development and related policies.
The National Mayors Conference and the National Governors Association have been leaders in this agenda, many times working directly with UN organizations to promote the policy. They are told of legislation that will be soon be implemented, and they are even provided sample legislation to introduce in their communities.
They arrive in your community with blue prints, state and federal plans, grants and lots of contacts in high places. There is also a second horde involved in the Sustainablist invasion — state and federal agency officials including EPA agents; air and water quality agents; Interior Department officials, HUD officials, energy officials, Commerce Department officials, and on and on — all targeting your locally elected officials with policy, money, regulations, reports, special planning boards, meetings, and conferences, all promoting the exact same agenda.
Think of the affect all of this has on a poor local official who just thought he would run for office and serve his community. This is his reality. This is what he thinks government is supposed to be because, after all, everyone he is dealing with says so.
Now, as he is surrounded by all of these important, powerful folks, along comes a local citizen who tells him that some guy named Tom DeWeese says all of these programs are from the UN and are taking away our liberty. I have another meeting to go to.
If we are going to successfully fight Agenda 21, it is vitally important that we all recognize this reality as we plan to deal with it and defeat it.
With that in mind, I offer the following ideas. If you try to attend local meetings by yourself you will be ignored. You will need others to plan and implement strategy. You have family and friends. Ask them to help look into some local policies. Check out of there is a local tea party or even a local Republican group. Churches are a target of such policies. Alert people at your church and ask them to help fight back.
Find people to help you! First, who are the players in your community. What is their agenda? What other communities have they operated in? Who are their members in your community? Finding this information may be the hardest of your efforts. They like to operate out of the spotlight. It probably will require that you attend lots of meetings and hearings. Take note of who is there and their role. You may have to ask questions and that may raise some eyebrows.
But stay out of the way as much as possible. Second, get all the details on the plans your community is working on. Has there already been legislation passed? Most of this information can be found on the town website. Knowing this information will help you put together a plan of action. Once you have it, you can begin to take your fight public. With the information you have gathered, begin to examine the effect the policies will have on the community and its residents.
Find who the victims of the legislation or regulation may be. This will be of great value as you confront city council. People understand victim stories — especially if it is them. It is the best way to undermine the process — and help get people to join your cause. You will find that Conservation Easements have raised taxes as much of the county land is removed from the tax rolls — someone has to make up for the lost revenue and the payment of easements.
Who are getting the easements? You may find the rich land owners have found a great loophole to cut their own property taxes as the middle class makes up the short fall. This will help bring usually disinterested people to your cause. Does the community plan call for reduction of energy use? If so, look for calls for energy audits and taxes on energy use. The audits mean that the government has set a goal to reduce energy use. It may follow that government agents are going to come into your home to inspect your energy use.
Then they are going to tell you what must be done in your home to cut usage. That will cost you money. Regulations are not voluntary. These are just a couple of examples of what to look for as you do your research. It all leads to higher costs and shortages, in the name of environmental protection and conservation and controlling growth anti-sprawl, they call it.
Your goal is to stop Sustainable Development in your community. That means a campaign to stop the creation of non-elected regional government councils that are difficult to hold accountable. It means to stop local governments from taking grants that come with massive strings attached to enforce compliance.
And it means you must succeed in removing outsider organizations and Stakeholder groups that are pressuring your elected officials to do their bidding. Armed with as much information as you can gather and armed with the ability to coherently discuss its details you are ready to take your battle to the public.
First, it would be better for you to try to discuss it privately with some of your elected officials, especially if you know them.
Tell them what you have found and explain why you are opposed. First discuss the effects of the policies on the average citizen. Explain why they are bad. Only very slowly should you bring the conversation around to the origin of such polices - Agenda 21 and the UN.
It is important that you build the case to show that these policies are not local, but part of a national and international agenda.
Begin a two fold campaign. First, write a series of letters to the editor for the local newspaper. Make sure that you are not alone. Coordinate your letters with others who will also write letters to back up and support what you have written.
These will generate more letters from others, some for your position and other against you. Second, begin to attend Council meetings and ask questions.
The response from the council members will determine your next move. If you are ignored and your questions met with silence or hostility, prepare a news release detailing your questions and the background you have as to why you asked those questions. Pass the news release out to the people at the next meeting as well as the news media. Attend the next meeting and the next demanding answers. Be sure to organize people to come with you.
The point in all of this is to make the issue public. Take away their ability to hide the details from the public. Expose the hoards of outsiders who are dictating policy in your community. Shine a very right spotlight on the roaches under the rock. If the newspaper is with you, great, but you will probably find it working with the other side. It may be difficult to get a fair shake in the newspaper or on radio. Get signs, and flyers in stores if necessary. And keep it up for as long as it takes.
The final step is to use the energy you have created to run candidates for office against those who have ignored and fought you. Ultimately, that is the office holders worst nightmare and may be the most effective way to get them to respond and serve their constituents. This has, of course, been met with skepticism and ridicule on the part of some of the elected officials egged on by the NGO stakeholder groups and planning organizations.
Here is an undeniable fact: So, we need to begin to challenge the plans that affect private property rights.
However, as we move in that direction, we must have a clear understanding of what property rights are. Many people today have little or varying ideas of property rights. Sometimes, in order to purchase property or to get access to services, we sign documents that say government or utility agents are free to come on our property at will. However, to demand that your private property be honored and protected a definition must be established before you start the effort.
As you stand in front of the elected officials at their regular meeting, ask them simply;. You are simply asking a non-combative question. They will assure you that they are in full support of protecting private property. And then you say;. And you present the resolution to them. If you can read it aloud to the meeting, so much the better.
They may say they need to take it under consideration and will get back to you. Make sure you are back at the next meeting to ask about it. Do not attempt this alone. The key to this effort is persistence and organization. If they have refused to sign it then you need 5 or 10 people to stand up and ask why.
You need to escalate this at each meeting until it becomes a public issue -. Ski lodges, Golf courses, asphalt, fossil fuels, consumerism, irrigation, commercial farms, livestock grazing. Your community is paying them dues with your tax dollars. Here is how to handle them: Pass out the web page copies to everyone in the chamber audience and say to your elected officials;. Then demand that those payment stop. You have proven your case. Stopping Consensus Meetings Most public meetings are now run by trained and highly paid facilitators whose jobs is to control the meeting and bring it to a preplanned conclusion.
This is how Sustainable Development is being implemented across the nation, especially in meetings or planning boards that are advertised as open to the public. There is nothing free or open about the consensus process.
It is designed to eliminate debate and close discussion. To bust up the process you must never participate, even to answer a question. To do so allows the facilitator to make you part of the process. Instead, you must control the discussion. Here is a quick suggestion on how to foul up the works: Never go alone to such a meeting. You will need at least three people — the more the better. Do not sit together. Instead, fan out in the room in a triangle formation. Know ahead of time the questions you want to ask: Who is the facilitator?
What is his association with the organizers? Is he being paid? Where did these programs being proposed come from? How are they to be funded? One question to ask over and over again, both at facilitated meetings and city council meetings, is this: Make them name it. You will quickly see that they too understand there are no property rights left. By asking these questions you are putting his legitimacy in question, building suspicion among the rest of the audience, destroying his authority.
They will try to counter, either by patronizing and humoring you, at first, or, then becoming hostile, moving to have you removed as a disruptive force.
They need to back you up, demand answers to your questions. If you have enough people in the room you can cause a major disruption, making it impossible for the facilitator to move forward with his agenda. Do not walk out and leave the room to him. Stay to the end and make him shut down the meeting. In Conclusion These suggestions on how to fight back are, admittedly, very basic and elementary.
They are meant only to be a guideline. You will have to do your homework and adapt these tactics to your local situation. These tactics are designed to create controversy and debate to force the Agenda 21 issue out of the secret meetings and into public debate where they belong. Many of these same tactics can be used at all levels of government, right up and into national legislation. Our plan is to demand answers from elected officials who want to ignore us.
They must be taught that such actions have consequences. The American Policy Center is now a partner in a new effort to create tactics and provide education to activists called Sustainable Freedom Lab - and hopefully it can serve as a resource for thw eorld, not just America.
Here activists can share their findings, successful tactics and research with the rest of the movement. The website is www. The exciting news is that, finally, people are starting to understand that Agenda 21 is destroying our nations and they are beginning to fight back. The UN Agenda 21 house of cards is being exposed and it will fall with continued efforts and exposure by the people, and for the people - not just America - Worldwide.
Will Apartments be Built in Your Backyard? UN Agenda Decoded: That article references this UN " Agenda" document that pushes a blueprint for so-called "sustainable development" around the world. The "goals" of this document are nothing more than code words for a corporate-government fascist agenda that will imprison humanity in a devastating cycle of poverty while enriching the world's most powerful globalist corporations like Monsanto and DuPont.
In the interests of helping wake up humanity, I've decided to translate the 17 points of this agenda so that readers everywhere can understand what this document is really calling for. To perform this translation, you have to understand how globalists disguise their monopolistic agendas in "feel good" language. Here's the point-by-point translation.
Notice carefully that nowhere does this document state that "achieving human freedom" is one of its goals. Nor does it explain HOW these goals are to be achieved.
As you'll see here, every single point in this UN agenda is to be achieved through centralized government control and totalitarian mandates that resemble communism.
End poverty in all its forms everywhere Translation: Put everyone on government welfare, food stamps, housing subsidies and handouts that make them obedient slaves to global government. Never allow people upward mobility to help themselves. Instead, teach mass victimization and obedience to a government that provides monthly "allowance" money for basic essentials like food and medicine.
Label it "ending poverty. End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture Translation: Invade the entire planet with GMOs and Monsanto's patented seeds while increasing the use of deadly herbicides under the false claim of "increased output" of food crops.
Engineer genetically modified plants to boost specific vitamin chemicals while having no idea of the long-term consequences of genetic pollution or cross-species genetic experiments carried out openly in a fragile ecosystem.
Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages Translation: Push heavy medication use on children and teens while rolling out "screening" programs. Call mass medication "prevention" programs and claim they improve the health of citizens. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all Translation: Push a false history and a dumbed-down education under "Common Core" education standards that produce obedient workers rather than independent thinkers.
Never let people learn real history, or else they might realize they don't want to repeat it. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls Translation: Criminalize Christianity, marginalize heterosexuality, demonize males and promote the LGBT agenda everywhere. The real goal is never "equality" but rather the marginalization and shaming of anyone who expresses any male characteristics whatsoever.
The ultimate goal is to feminize society, creating widespread acceptance of "gentle obedience" along with the self-weakening ideas of communal property and "sharing" everything. Because only male energy has the strength to rise up against oppression and fight for human rights, the suppression of male energy is key to keeping the population in a state of eternal acquiescence. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all Translation: Allow powerful corporations to seize control of the world's water supplies and charge monopoly prices to "build new water delivery infrastructure" that "ensures availability.
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all Translation: Penalize coal, gas and oil while pushing doomed-to-fail "green" energy subsidies to brain-dead startups headed by friends of the White House who all go bankrupt in five years or less.
Or try, at least. The green startups make for impressive speeches and media coverage, but because these companies are led by corrupt idiots rather than capable entrepreneurs, they always go broke. And the media hopes you don't remember all the fanfare surrounding their original launch. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all Translation: Regulate small business out of existence with government-mandated minimum wages that bankrupt entire sectors of the economy.
Force employers to meet hiring quotas of LGBT workers while mandating wage tiers under a centrally planned work economy dictated by the government. Destroy free market economics and deny permits and licenses to those companies that don't obey government dictates.
Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation Translation: Put nations into extreme debt with the World Bank, spending debt money to hire corrupt American corporations to build large-scale infrastructure projects that trap developing nations in an endless spiral of debt.
See the book Confessions of an Economic Hit Ma n by John Perkins to understand the details of how this scheme has been repeated countless times over the last several decades. Reduce inequality within and among countries Translation: Punish the rich, the entrepreneurs and the innovators, confiscating nearly all gains by those who choose to work and excel. Redistribute the confiscated wealth to the masses of non-working human parasites that feed off a productive economy while contributing nothing to it Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable Translation: Ban all gun ownership by private citizens, concentrating guns into the hands of obedient government enforcers who rule over an unarmed, enslaved class of impoverished workers.
Criminalize living in most rural areas by instituting Hunger Games -style "protected areas" which the government will claim are owned by "the People" even though no people are allowed to live there. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns Translation: Begin levying punitive taxes on the consumption of fossil fuels and electricity, forcing people to live under conditions of worsening standards of living that increasingly resemble Third World conditions.
Use social influence campaigns in TV, movies and social media to shame people who use gasoline, water or electricity, establishing a social construct of ninnies and tattlers who rat out their neighbors in exchange for food credit rewards.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts Translation: Set energy consumption quotas on each human being and start punishing or even criminalizing "lifestyle decisions" that exceed energy usage limits set by governments. Institute total surveillance of individuals in order to track and calculate their energy consumption.
Penalize private vehicle ownership and force the masses onto public transit, where TSA grunts and facial recognition cameras can monitor and record the movement of every person in society, like a scene ripped right out of Minority Report.
Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development Translation: Ban most ocean fishing, plunging the food supply into an extreme shortage and causing runaway food price inflation that puts even more people into economic desperation.
Criminalize the operation of private fishing vessels and place all ocean fishing operations under the control of government central planning. Only allow favored corporations to conduct ocean fishing operations and make this decision based entirely on which corporations give the most campaign contributions to corrupt lawmakers.
Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss Translation: Roll out Agenda 21 and force humans off the land and into controlled cities.
Criminalize private land ownership, including ranches and agricultural tracts. Tightly control all agriculture through a corporate-corrupted government bureaucracy whose policies are determined almost entirely by Monsanto while being rubber-stamped by the USDA.
Ban woodstoves, rainwater collection and home gardening in order to criminalize self-reliance and force total dependence on government. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels Translation: Grant legal immunity to illegal aliens and "protected" minority groups, which will be free to engage in any illegal activity -- including openly calling for the mass murder of police officers -- because they are the new protected class in society.
Use government agencies to selectively punish unfavorable groups with punitive audits and regulatory harassment, all while ignoring the criminal activities of favored corporations that are friends of the political elite. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development Translation: Enact global trade mandates that override national laws while granting unrestricted imperialism powers to companies like Monsanto, Dow Chemical, RJ Reynolds, Coca-Cola and Merck.
Pass global trade pacts that bypass a nation's lawmakers and override intellectual property laws to make sure the world's most powerful corporations maintain total monopolies over drugs, seeds, chemicals and technology.
Nullify national laws and demand total global obedience to trade agreements authored by powerful corporations and rubber-stamped by the UN. Total enslavement of the planet by As the UN document says, "We commit ourselves to working tirelessly for the full implementation of this Agenda by Nowhere does this document state that the rights of the individual will be protected.
Nor does it even acknowledge the existence of human rights granted to individuals by the Creator. Even the so-called "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" utterly denies individuals the right to self defense, the right to medical choice and the right to parental control over their own children. The UN is planning nothing less than a global government tyranny that enslaves all of humanity while calling the scheme "sustainable development" and "equality.
And of course it's all being rolled out under the fraudulent label of "progress. Awareness is required before action may be taken. Introducing Agenda August 9 From: They regularly publish reports and rail against anyone even mentioning the names Agenda 21 or the new Agenda Ours is just a local plan for our community. Issues and policies suddenly appear in front of them with sample, ready-made legislation. And then the unending pressure begins for them to pass it.
There is confusion, uncertainty and there is the herd mentality to pass legislation. What most of these legislators fail to understand is the direct relationship much of this legislation has with a much larger agenda. Most legislation interconnects with other pieces and parts contained in other legislation.
Does this look targeted much? And most of all, they will answer, Agenda 21, never heard of it. Well, let me show you how it works and how the toe bone gets connected to the ankle bone ending up with the Frankenstein monster. They are willing to go to any length, even lies, to keep the climate change foot on our throats.
On the local level this translates into planning policy that controls energy use and the efforts to cut down on the use of cars, enforcement of the building of expensive light rail train systems and bike paths and installation of smart meters, etc. The fact is, in developed nations populations are actually going down.
The only real growth in the US population in recent years has been from immigration, legal or otherwise. Environmentalists insist that the borders must be open to allow as many to immigrate here as possible. They argue that the U.
Nations that refuse to legalize private property ownership for the masses, for example, are a primary reason for growing poverty. Green regulations stop the building of infrastructure. They panic at the idea of increased energy use in developing nations. Then consider these quotes from the Sustainablists:.
