Agenda 21: Not Just an Election
If we lived in a true democracy Agenda 21 of the United Nations would have been put to local and national referendum in Ireland.
Here is a quote by Harvey Ruvin at The United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED):
“...justice must be changed to conform to that of the rest of the world, and there must be a shift in attitudes. ? Individual wants, needs, and desires are to be conformed to the views and dictates of government planners. In the process of implementing Sustainable Development “Individual rights will have to take a back seat to the collective,”.
Report from a U.N. conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, on human settlements:
“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...The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of 8ociety as a whole.”
For those who are not familiar with Agenda 21 or the Agenda for the twenty first century is also known amonst independent researchers as the term "New World Order" which is more widely used as a political football amongst NGO's and activists around the world. The mainstream media regularly label researchers of this concept as conspiracy theorists who unfortunately sometimes link facts with much speculation.
J. Gary Lawrence, Council advisor to President Clinton, said:
"Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals in our society. ... This segment of our society who fear "one-world government" and a UN invasion of the United States...would actively work to defeat [Agenda 21]. So we call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth."
Paul Clarke has been working to raise awareness on the dangers of globalisation and corporatism for the last six years and have recently released a documentary covering these issues and offers a democratic solution for these crisises here and around the world.

The United Nations Agenda 21/Sustainable Development creates the rights for the community therefore direct participatory democracy is again the only way to protect individual rights and private property in local communities. UN organisations such as the UNECE's Aarhus Convention has made no provision for the citizens initiative process and instead uses the Delphi Technique in public decision-making for Agenda 21 sustainable development projects. Delphi is used to channel a group of people to accept a point of view that is imposed on them while convincing them that it was their idea. However living in a proper democracy direct legislation comes in three different varieties: the initiative, the referendum and the recall which is what I will be providing when elected as Councillor for Beaumont/Donaghmede.
According to the book called Behind The Green Mask: UN Agenda 21 by Koire, Rosa has stated that:-
"...the community which are not defined in a constitution they can change without warning or notice; one’s individual rights are balanced against a continuously redefined amorphous rulebook. This rulebook is written in the dark and the individual runs up against it at dawn, and alone...Most of your towns provided funding and/or infrastructure development for these private projects. They used Redevelopment Agency funds. Your money. Specifically, your property taxes. Notice how there’s very little money in your General Funds now, and most of that is going to pay Police and Fire? Your street lights are off, your parks are shaggy, your roads are pot-holed, your county hospitals are closing. The money that should be used for these things is diverted into the Redevelopment Agency for 30 years. It’s the only agency in government that can float a bond without a vote of the people. And they did that, and now you’re paying off those bonds for the next 30 to 45 years with your property taxes. Did you know that?"
Minister Hogan announces recipients of 2013 Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund Grants
"Mr Phil Hogan T.D., Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, today (15/11/2013), announced the recipients of grant funding under the 2013 Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund. The projects are being co-funded by the Department and Local Authorities; €400,000 is being provided by the Department, with a matching amount of €400,000 being provided by local authorities, bringing total funding under the 2013 scheme to €800,000, which is an increase of €126,000 over 2012 funding. In addition to the funding provided by the Department and the Local Authorities, the successful applicants have also raised additional funds locally, bringing the total shared partnership investment to over €1.4 million."
Sustainable Development – A Threat To Individual Rights and Private Property
Hidden in plain sight: Local Agenda 21 for Sustainable Development is an official United Nations global action plan to be implemented through local government. It is the blue print to inventory and control of all land, all water, all plants, all minerals, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all information, all energy, all education and all human beings in the world.
One of the planners has said Agenda 21,
"...proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by every person on earth. ... [I]t calls for specific changes in the activities of all people. ... Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced."
Jacques Cousteau, UNESCO Courier said: “This is a terrible thing to say. In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”
The United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment states: ”A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.”
The resulting U.N. program, Agenda 21, is a grand plan for global “sustainable development,” which President George H.W. Bush (and 177 other world leaders) agreed to in 1992.
PERMANENT MISSION OF IRELAND TO THE UNITED NATIONS
ADDRESS BY MR BRIAN COWEN T.D. MINISTER FOR HEALTH AND CHILDREN IRELAND TO:
The Special Session of the General Assembly for the Review and Appraisal of the Implementation of the Programme of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development at United Nations Headquarters 30 June, 1999
“I would also like to pay tribute to Dr Sadik, who contributed so much to the Cairo Programme of Action and to the five-year review process.
This Special Session is the conclusion of that process, a process that has focused attention on what we in the international community have achieved in population and development since Cairo. It also allows us, indeed forces us, to take stock of the challenges still remaining.
At the outset I would like to share with you some of the pertinent changes which have taken place in Ireland in recent years. The major change relates to the sharp decline in the Irish birth rate which indicates that couples in Ireland are controlling their fertility to a much greater extent. The birth rate fell from 2 1.8 births per 1000 in 1980 to*1 3.5 in 1998. In 1995 the fertility rate was 1.84 which is below the population replacement level of 2.1. The Irish fertility rate has been below replacement level since 1991.
Since Cairo in 1994, policy on family planning has been reviewed and new programmes developed and implemented.
Persons in the lower socio- economic groups are entitled to family planning services free of charge from their family doctor. Non-Governmental organisations play an important role in the provision of reproductive health services and work closely with the statutory authorities in doing so.
In relation to adolescent health a schools-based relationships and sexuality education programme has been developed.
[…] reducing the extent of abortion throughout the world. Improved health education, access to family planning services and contraception are essential in order to bring that about.
Cairo was one of the great UN Conferences of the past decade. It set specific goals and targets for the entire international community[…]
Ireland is strongly of the view that the role of the United Nations is indispensable in the achievement of the agreed international development goals and affirms its full commitment to the UN role in international development cooperation.
Both bilateral donors and multilateral agencies - the UNFPA in particular - have ensured that improved health and family planning services are now available to many in the developing world.
Formidable challenges remain however. While population growth rates have fallen, and fallen steeply in many countries there are very high fertility rates in many of the poorest countries.
15% of the Irish Aid budget within our priority countries in sub-Saharan Africa is spent on the health sector, including an important reproductive health component in many of our projects.
The support of the entire international community is crucial to ensuring that the agreement reached at Cairo five years ago represents more than just good intentions. The commitments made at Cairo cannot be fulfilled without an adequate and assured level of funding for population activities.
Ireland’s overseas development assistance has enjoyed several years of sustained growth and will continue to do so. The Irish Government is fully committed to the UN target to 0.7% of GNP for ODA. Our spending on health care, including reproductive health care, will continue to remain a high priority for the Irish Aid programme.
Ireland’s strong support for the leading role of the UN Population Fund is underlined by our steadily increasing voluntary contributions to that organisation, as well as through our membership of the UNFPA’s Executive Board.
In addition to our regular contribution to the work of the UNFPA last year, Ireland was pleased to make an additional voluntary contribution specifically earmarked for the Cairo review process. This is an acknowledgement of Ireland’s support for the international consensus on population issues.
In conclusion I wish to confirm the Irish Government’s commitment to the ongoing implementation of the programme of action which will enable us to cope with the challenge which is confronting the global community in the approaching century.”
As for myself, my position on the environment is the same position I have on all issues - I will support a referendum on any issue of the people's choice and I do not support any unconstitutional local draconian government types. We can do better together, join our campaign today for a true democracy. The people of Ireland need to take action and the time to act is now!
