+ ICLEI Facts 1989 – Jeb Brughmann (founder of ICLEI) was asked by UNEP to come to NY and discuss how his past success in the local community could be used to further the environmental movement at the local level 1990 - ICLEI was created to promote Local Agenda 21 1991-1992 ICLEI collaborated on Chapter 28 or UN Agenda 21 Sustainable Development. 1997 - Google How ICLEI Was Created an interview with Joan Veon 2002 - Interview between Leslie Hom and Jeb Brughmann ICLEI is often made aware of funding opportunities and seeks to direct funders to Members, and Members to funders, where there is a match. ICLEI does not provide funding but makes communities aware of funding. You do not have to be paying dues to ICLEI to be influenced by ICLEI ICLEI is a sanctioned, registered UN NGO
+ Did You Know? ICLEI is often made aware of funding opportunities and seeks to direct funders to Members, and Members to funders, where there is a match. ICLEI does not provide funding but makes communities aware of funding. All funding for growth plans that comes from ANY government source is promoting Agenda 21 and your community is now bound to implement the plan under the guidelines the government mandates. There is a 68 page document outlining the requirements for taking Sustainable Grant money. Your city/county does not have to be a dues paying member of ICLEI to have ICLEI working in your city/county ICLEI is a registered, sanctioned NGO by the UN as is the American Planning Association, Sierra Club, Nature Conservancy and about 2000 other foundations and organizations.
ICLEI Funding 1998-1999 More than $500,000 Open Society Institute (George Soros), USA: Local Agenda 21 (International) U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Climate Wise Program: Cities for Climate Protection (US) Between $200,000 and $500,000 U.S. Agency for International Development U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Policy Development U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Solid Waste Between $100,000 and $200,000 Turner Foundation U.S. Department of Energy, Program Services Division U.S Department of Energy, Seattle Regional Support Office U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Air and Radiation U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of International Activities U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Planning and Evaluation Between $25,000 and $100,000 U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Headquarters Procurement U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Atmosphere Pollution Prevention Branch U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Sustainable Ecosystems and Communities
+ ICLEI CONTINUES TO DENY THEY PROMOTE AGENDA 21. What do you think??
+ It is Obvious the UN Thinks ICLEI Supports the UN. What about you??
+ The Earth Charter Created by Maurice Strong (Chairman of 1992 Earth Summit) and Mikael Gorbechev Mikael Gorbechev stated that he would like to see the Earth Charter replace the 10 Commandments. Worship the Earth as God. Meeting at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris in March, 2000, the Commission approved a final version of the Earth Charter. The Earth Charter contains 16 Principles and 61 sub-principles Principle 10a states – Promote the equitable distribution of wealth within nations and among nations It also states In order to build a sustainable global community the nations of the world must renew their commitment to the United Nations…. The Earth Charter is kept at the UN building in New York. The container that houses the Earth Charter was hand made in the US and hand carried to the UN building. The container is very similar to the Arc of the Covenant

+ ICLEI Publications – For a group that denies participation in A21 they surely had a lot of input.

+ You Are Who You Associate With APA and ICLEI supports UN Habitat UN Habitat Land Policy makes it very clear that government should own and manage all land APA and ICLEI are partners APA associates with Planners Network a self professed progressive planning network that does not believe the private sector should own and manage land APA was given a $5 million grant from the Clinton Administration to create a training program to be implemented in every university in the US. The training program designed was to train future planners on the concepts of Agenda 21. Smart Growth: A Legislative Guide The APA has conducted a series of training workshops instructing planners on how to change their language to stop the recent onslaught of opposition. Once again change words and hide what they are doing.
+ UN Habitat Land Policy From the Preamble: Land, because of its unique nature and the crucial role it plays in human settlements, 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 the principle 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. Social justice, urban renewal and development, the provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interests of society as a whole.
+ UN Habitat Land Policy A-1. Redistribute population in accord with resources D-1. Government must control the use of land to achieve equitable distribution of resources D-2. Control Land Use through zoning and land-use planning D-3. Excessive profits from land use must be recaptured by government D-4. Public ownership of land should be used to exercise urban and rural land reform D-5. Owner rights should be separated from development rights which should be held by public authority.
+ Triple Bottom Line Budgeting Society+Environment+Economy=Triple Bottom Line Economic factors are not the the priority when budgeting Sustainability is the goal, REGARDLESS of cost How do you know when you are sustainable? What measurement is used to determine this?
+ From Discover the Networks Podesta served on the staff of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) from 1981 to 1988. Leahy was an early advocate of circumventing the U.S. Constitution by gaining control over the federal courts. Podesta assisted Leahy in pioneering the indiscriminate smearing and filibustering of any and all Republican judicial nominees – a practice previously unknown in Washington.

+ EPA Explains the Purpose of The Sustainable Development Grant Program
+ United Nations Role Hidden J. Gary Lawrence - Advisor to Pres. Clintons PCSD - Urban Strategies Leader, Arup Consulting - U.S. Smart Growth Leadership Council In the case of the U.S., our local authorities are engaged in planning processes consistent with LA21 but there is little interest in using the LA21 brand. Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals in our society such as the National Rifle Association, citizen militias and some members of Congress. This segment of our society who fear one-world government and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined the conspiracy by undertaking LA21. So, we will call our process something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management, or smart growth. Source: J. Gary Lawrence The Future of Agenda 21 in the New Millennium – The Millennium Papers
+ Nancy Pelosi - 1992 A vote was taken to suspend the rules – Gingrich voted Yes, And Gingrich claims not to know that A21 was being implemented locally?
+ So Why Are We Involved with ICLEI? The US does not support the Kyoto Protocol so why are we participating in a program that was declined by our country? ICLEI partners with questionable organizations that do not have Americas best interest at the forefront. There have been 138 ICLEI memberships cancelled in the past 18 months. Alabama, the first state to pass a bill to stop Agenda 21 and all association with ICLEI TN passed a resolution in the House and the Senate against Agenda 21 and ICLEI. A bill is expected to be passed in the 2013 session which starts in January 2013. The RNC has passed a resolution against Agenda 21/ICLEI. This resolution will be added to the Republican platform in August, 2012 at the convention in Tampa, FL Taxpayer money is being used to fund ICLEI. Did anyone ask your permission to spend your money to support an organization that is promoting UN policies?
