Many of you know a little bit about Agenda 21 and it’s progeny ICLEI. The City of Bellingham and Whatcom County are proud members of this individual property rights abuser. Please take a moment to read this well written article about what I believe to be the #1 concern for all local communities. They can only exist with our permission and our tax dollars. This upcoming election being of a critical local nature for County Executive, City Mayor and many Council positions, please take the time to ask each of the candidates if they support Agenda 21 and ICLEI? Will they be willing to withdraw our membership support of these international agendas which usurp our individual property rights and probably a whole lot more that we are not aware of as of yet.
I have provided a lead in to the April 18, 2011 article from the Evergreen Freedom Foundation (aka Freedom Foundation) with a link to the full article for your perusal.

Agenda 21 – planning a new world order
Americans that read Agenda 21 are outraged—and rightfully so. Even a quick glimpse of Agenda 21 and the most casual observer will recognize it as socialist engineering. Its strongest critics call it planned genocide.
Agenda 21 was unveiled at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, in Rio de Janeiro on June 13, 1992. The Rio conference was known as the Earth Summit. Since then the United Nations convened in Johannesburg at the 2002 Earth Summit. And they plan to gather again in Rio for the 2012 Earth Summit.
The purpose of Agenda 21 is to create policy that protects the global environment.
It’s stunning, however, how broad Agenda 21 is—and how it aims to control all aspects of society—using the excuse of protecting the environment. If Karl Marx was asked to author a global planning document, it very may well have looked like Agenda 21.
