From the UN website:
Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment.
Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests were adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992.
The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) was created in December 1992 to ensure effective follow-up of UNCED, to monitor and report on implementation of the agreements at the local, national, regional and international levels. It was agreed that a five year review of Earth Summit progress would be made in 1997 by the United Nations General Assembly meeting in special session.
The full implementation of Agenda 21, the Programme for Further Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Commitments to the Rio principles, were strongly reaffirmed at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) held in Johannesburg, South Africa from 26 August to 4 September 2002.
Below is a list of the sections and chapters to give you an idea of what it is about (hint: everything). It is very dull reading, but you should print it out and discuss it with the local candidates at the next United Nations election – OK, well, if the UN was democratic and elected, but it isn’t, but if there were UN elections, you could think about doing that!
As a substitute, you could talk with UN representatives locally and (only) God knows there are plenty of those – some of them elected to other offices locally, provincially or federally and working for the UN (implementing all the treaties like this one) – and the rest not elected but they’re busy running UN-enlisted NGO’s. In addtion to governments, there are all sorts of different groups working for the UN and implementing the reorganization of the planet. It says so in the document. The media must have found it very boring too because they never talk about it.
It’s kind of like, there is this huge party of “winners” who get to join the AGENDA. You can join up and go along with the agenda for reorganizing the world just like in the plan. It’s all spelled out already, so you don’t have to think of any of your own ideas. The “winners” are bought off already. There is a lot of money in it. The “losers” – people who believe in “freedom”, “self-determination” – are on the outs and will have trouble conforming to a totalitarian world re-organization run by powerful elites. That’s basically where we’re at.
