The problem with UN Agenda 21 is not that it came from the United Nations but that our government leaders have embraced the plan and have worked diligently to naturalize the policy into US law and national, state and local policies. The principles of government promoted by the UN and it’s Agenda 21 are antithetical to our form of government that has traditionally put great emphasis on private property rights. This emphasis on individual liberty and property rights is largely responsible for the historic success of United States as a nation.
The implementation of the tenets of Agenda 21 is nothing short of subversion. This has nothing to do with environmental stewardship. It is about control!
There are battles being waged all over the United States as citizens and legislators struggle to protect fundamental property rights against multitudes of non-government organizations and agencies carry out the goals of Agenda 21.
Below is information on two efforts taking place in Oklahoma to defend against the implementation of contrary UN goals, a little history on how the UN policy came to America, one example of how damaging it is to industry and innovation in America and a new agreement (signed Feb 11, 2012) between the EPA and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).
Two efforts to push back taking place in Oklahoma right now. Your support is crucial.
On the county level;
On a state level; HJR 1072, Support for the American Sovereignty Restoration Act by Rep. Charles Key. This measure reiterates the intent of the American Sovereignty Restoration Act which would end membership of the US to the United Nations.
HJR 1072 urges Congress and the President of the United States pass legislation and take steps to end membership of the United States in the United Nations. Read HJR 1072
This measure was referred to the House Rules Committee on Feb. 7, 2012 but it needs to be scheduled for a hearing in the Rules Committee.
Let the Rules Committee leaders know that it is very important that HJR 1072 gets scheduled and heard!

Since the mid 1970s, both the United Nations and the United States have been moving toward ever-tightening “public” control of land use.
By: Henry Lamb – Sovereignty.net
Ownership of land is the foundation of freedom in America. The hope of owning even a small plot of ground compelled our forefathers to brave incalculable risks crossing the ocean and challenging the wilderness. Land ownership was so cherished by our nation’s founders that they guaranteed that government could not take private property without just compensation paid to the land owner. This founding principle has eroded dramatically over time, especially since 1976.
The United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (HABITAT I) met in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1976. Agenda Item 10 of the conference report was entitled simply “Land.”
Here is an excerpt from the Preamble to that item:
“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. Public control of land use is therefore indispensable….”
This policy document was agreed to by the United States. Among the U.S. delegates were William K. Reilly, former EPA Administrator, and Carla Hill, former Trade Negotiator in the Bush Administration.
Here is one example of how the principles of UN Agenda 21 looks on the ground as it is being carried out in the USA.
