Excellent Example of How Agenda 21 is Not Really About Sustainability

In this video, you’ll see off grid Los Angeles County residents in California being driven off their isolated land where they’ve lived in peace for decades because of sudden, persistent (anonymous and secret) “neighbor complaints about ugly structures and zoning violations.” Many of these people live with solar panels, rain water collection and aren’t even hooked up to the grid at all. Instead of being rewarded for their sustainability, city, county and regional plans want their land for undisclosed reasons.

THIS is the sort of thing I saw happening and heard about happening when I lived in California. It is also happening in Florida, where a woman who lived completely off grid was told her home was unsanitary (without any investigation) and told she was breaking international codes. In case you’re not savvy about Agenda 21, it’s an international code. It exists. If you think the land they’re kicking these people off is worthless or that it will remain protected, I challenge you to investigate what happens to it in 3-5 years from when they get rid of these residents. Some corporation or “redeveloper” or perhaps China will show up, and there won’t be anyone left to protest.

This sort of thing is happening all over the US, but especially out West and in Florida. Agenda 21 is an international plan, though, so keep your city officials on task and demand transparency. As you’ll see in the video, they’re not required to provide that transparency, but if they won’t, then consider this a heads up to push the issues while you still can. I’m doing my best to educate our planner about exactly why people keep calling about Agenda 21. People are taught this is wacky conspiracy theory, but if you’ve known farmers or off gridders out West, or even in Michigan for that matter, you start to realize it’s a conspiracy fact. Educate yourselves so that you can educate others. There is true sustainability, and then there is “sustainable development” that often means sweetheart deals made outside the confines of legally elected government representatives and laws that protect the citizens.

Imagine These For the Philippines

I’m envisioning these pallet houses helping people in the Philippines. May this video and the building instructions and supplies find their way to the right people in the right places!
