Local Communities Dismantling Corporate Rule

Thanks, Zen!

“This is powerful and very heartening. Pass this on to those seeking to network with local communities and all concerned, a terrific two-part interview with very important information on how to exercise our authority. – Zen”

“Community Rights educator Paul Cienfuegos explains how “We The People” are exercising the authority to govern ourselves and dismantle corporate rule. When small farmers in rural Pennsylvania wanted to say “no” to a corporate factory farm coming into their community, they learned they couldn’t, because it would violate the corporation’s “rights” and state pre-emption laws. So they did something technically illegal – their town passed an innovative ordinance banning corporate factory farming. It worked! The corporation left town. Pittsburgh upshifted the approach: Rather than define what we don’t want, define what we DO want. Their “Right to Water” stopped natural gas fracking in the city. Ordinances like this have been passed in over 150 communities in 9 states. Tune in to learn how this works. Episode 258.

Laura again: I found these videos just at the perfect time after trying to convince some local people to do this very thing — explicitly protecting our rights to organic farming and seeds, to save and grow heirloom/heritage seeds on both private property and in community gardens, our rights to collect water from our roofs, and food sovereignty for our community so that “responsible regionalism” cannot force us to comply with backdoor ways of outlawing heritage seeds like the EU has managed to do. We’ve got “sustainable development” barreling down our communities and being steered in the shadows by some very unsustainable and unethical corporations with tentacles in government and NGO’s. I would love the poetic justice of these Agenda 21 spin-off plans actually implementing protections for truly sustainable sovereignty. May it be so!

    Catherine Austin Fitts who comes from an investment background and who worked for Dillon Read as well as HUD has excellent ideas and strategies for wresting control away from corporate hegemony. She also has detailed knowledge of corporate/government corruption and “knows where the bodies are buried.”

    I believe that these activities such as chasing consensus for AGW, arguing over theories which are unsupported empirically are all an orchestrated diversion and smoke screen.
    The real danger comes from the United Nations and UN Agenda 21 which is the parent of AGW.
    Is the UN a dangerous and malignant bureaucracy? My research points to this.
    There is no conspiracy as everything is clearly described and published on official websites etc. All we need to do is read it!
    Here is an example on Agenda 21 policy on land.
    See the my highlights in red on page 8

    No wonder property rights are being abused in my city under the guise of an earthquake recovery.
    Ever consider the Agenda 21 wetlands policy. It works like this. 1. Persuade a farmer to part with a swampy area of his farm and label it a ‘wetlands restoration’. 2. Do nothing and let the wetland ‘recover’ which means the original drainage will block and the wetland/swamp will spread further onto the farmer’s land. 3. If the farmer in desperation clears the drainage problem then fine or gaol him. 4. Observing that there are now further spreading swamps ‘wetlands’ encroaching on said farmers land, well take that off him too.
    Note that this guy once owned the land in question, it is not mentioned how it was transferred to the government. Also willows are mentioned. Willows are not natural in New Zealand and used to be regarded as pests because they block waterways.
    In my country, maybe more than 50% of farms are comprised of more than 90% drained swamp.

    • Yes, I am very aware of Agenda 21 and am at this point apparently the sole person in my town fighting it. Because there is so little awareness, I’m opting for less normal methods. Magick has worked for me when nothing else has, so that is my primary strategy. Negotiations, education are behind that because likely to be less effective. They are doing the same land grabs all over the US. Thanks for the links and best of luck to you!

    After reading your ‘about’, I warn you that you may be heading for a clash of ideals.

    The recently published book ‘Totalitaria’ by Ian Wishart, whose research parallels my own will show you what I mean.
    Thoroughly recommend it be read anyway.
    All the best in your battle,

    Cheers Roger



    • I’m not a liberal, New Age fluff bunny if that’s what you’ve assumed. Very familiar with that crowd, but I walk a Middle Way that did not ever involve voting for Obama or communists. If you read my blog, you may see there’s a difference, despite outward appearances. I will check out the book. Cheers, such as they are…
