"Sustainable development links everyone in the world to new concerns about the future of the earth’s natural environment. It provides the purpose for expanding communitarian land use law to govern all human actions, ambitions, and needs. Every federal agency in the United States of America has embraced the principles for sustainable development." Niki Raapana and Nordica Friedrich, 2020: Our Common DestinyGlobal community developers are partnering with towns and cities to help them build a future in the face of challenges such as: peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. Using a slick marketing scheme and scientific deceit, participating communities are led to believe that their membership is protecting their future, but they are actually giving over controls of their communities. Since our present communities don't have the answer to cope with this perfect storm, Communitarians are charged with protecting the environment, thus protecting our global future. Although this sounds honorable, the U.N. is rolling in the mother of all Trojan Horses, and reining in global governance.
As we have seen with Transition Towns and the Transition US Movement, they convince trusting locals with Transition USA's well-funded and well-promoted "grassroots" outer image. However, Transition Towns are insidious, and local governments don't realize that they are transitioning into an Agenda 21 Sustainable Development community. This means congested living, contrived shortages, surveillance, loss of freedom of speech, and a collectivist society.
While Transition Initiatives work to prepare local communities to conform to "Energy Descent ActionPlans," they also work to conform policies in line with world governance principles, including the abolition of private property. The Earth Charter Initiative Mission Statement from the United Nations encourages cities to "transition."
ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability
One can substitute the name Transition for Local Agenda 21 or ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability, because they are all essentially the same. Their anti-liberty/pro-communitarian policies are based upon the same patterns, values, and public/private collaboration.
ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability is an association of over 1220 local government members and partners who are committed to sustainable development. Members come from 70 different countries and represent more than 569,885,000 people. It is an international association of local governments, as well as national and regional local government organizations who have made a commitment to sustainable development.
The association was established when more than 200 local governments from 43 countries convened at its inaugural conference, the World Congress of Local Governments for a Sustainable Future, at the United Nations in New York in September 1990. The headquarters is in Bonn, Germany, and the President of ICLEI is David Cadman.
In the following short video, David Cadman encourages city leaders to become a member of ICLEA.
Mr. Cadman was at the 2009 World Congress. The 2012 ICLEI World Congress will be held in June 2012.
The Earth Summit 2012 is also being held in Brazil on 20-22 June.
In the next video, Jeannie Soderman and Dr. Stan Monteith discuss the controls the ICLEI puts into place whenever a city participates with this international agency. She explains the repercussions when each city and county signs up for membership, and the political agenda attached to it.
Spokane's Move Toward Globalism
Spokane, WA, signed onto the United Nations ICLEI Climate Protection Campaign. Jeannie Soberman mentions in the video above that these ICLEI cities write their own Community Bill of Rights. Essentially, community leaders are now called to implement a new communitarian system of governance which overrides their constitutional rights and freedoms. In the following 2009 video, Amy Goodman from Democracy Now interviews a Spokane attorney about the resolution their attempt to get enough signatures in order to set up their communities Bill of Rights.
Another dirty little secret that these communities don't realize is that in 1997, George Soros’s Open Society gave ICLEI a $2,147,415 grant to support its Local Agenda 21 Project. All of these U.N. programs are set up to indoctrinate and infiltrate residents to be globally-minded and preparing states to cede from sovereignty.
Its participatory planning process gives everyone the feeling that they have a voice in the community - but they already had a voice. It is the Delphi Technique, a tool of manipulation.
