Opponents of Agenda 21, a United Nations instigated plan that provides guidelines for eventual “public control” of the world’s land and resources, took their case to La Vernia’s city council Nov. 14.

Ralph Gerhardt of the Wilson County Patriots introduced fellow member Pete Juhasz, who used a PowerPoint presentation to make their argument.

Juhasz prefaced his presentation by saying that his position “has nothing to do with stopping development and this is not based on conspiracy theories.” He traced the history of Agenda 21 to the 1987 World Commission on the Environment and Development, which issued a 351-page report named “Our Common Future.” The United Nations subsequently created an agency, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, to which 600 U.S. cities belong.

One goal of the environmental initiatives, according to Juhasz, is to limit human activity to less than 50 percent of the land. Some evidence he cited includes redirected population growth into areas by confining economic development, replacing private transportation with public transportation, and general encroachments on the use of personal property.

Juhasz offered a resolution to the council “to reject the United Nations’ Agenda 21’s radical policies and reject any grant monies attached to it.”

Mayor Robert Gregory said that the city council members need to be aware of verbiage in contracts, but wanted to delay any action until completing more research.

Later in the meeting, Police Chief Bruce Ritchey reported 81 calls to the police during the previous month. Ritchey said many were school- and drug-related, and most were in the city park. He added that there had been damage to the gazebo and to the water fountains.

Ritchey urged more security for the park. He said that officers were making a point to go by the park between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. after school and two or three times every night to serve as a deterrent.

“There is a trend here, and we’re going to stop it,” Gregory said. “Let’s get the school, park foundation, and the Little League together to address the problem.”

In other action, the council:

•Decided to hold a public hearing on amending the city’s comprehensive zoning regulations

•Thanked the Wilson County Patriots for cleaning up the butterfly garden and the gazebo

•Approved two change orders to the city’s two well projects while noting that the projects were still within the budget and on schedule

•Discussed a job description for a building plan review/building inspector/code compliance position.

Apathyisadisease - Ralph was but one of several Wilson County Patriots (WCP) making the presentation to the council. The Patriots have followed Poth Mayor's initiative to educate governing bodies of the ills of the United Nations ... More ›

Glad Ralph is addressing this. This resolution has gone under the radar for too long, and it is time local government condemns it.
