Last night about 50 citizen activists turned a ONE BAY AREA public Delphi meeting in Santa Rosa, CA upside down. WE REFUSED TO BE GOOD GERMANS.
What happened? We spoke out, video'd (video is on our 'Videos' page), entered the meeting without signing in, refused to be railroaded, continually corrected the government/consultant lies and called them out, did not participate in the phony 'voting', did not give our names to the establishment press, brought in cameras and signs, flyered warning the organizers not to violate the open meeting laws, and did not get arrested although police were called. We exercised our rights as Americans.
BUT, we can learn from this video---we need to do more civil disobedience than was exhibited by this brave group. If you sit passively the facilitators will assume you agree with the plan. If you show up, SPEAK UP: Do Not Sit Passively. Hold Up Signs. Get out of your comfort zone. This is no time to go along to get along, or to sit quietly.
Who are we? A coalition of independent citizens from all over the SF Bay Area, Democrats, Property Rights Advocates, Tea Party members, Republicans, Libertarians, non-affiliated Independents---brave Americans standing together to resist tyranny.
What is ONE BAY AREA? A regional plan to direct federal and state transportation dollars over the next 25 years to specific cities that have agreed to ONLY approve smart growth and ONLY approve it in limited pre-designated areas of just a few towns in the entire San Francisco Bay Area. Using ridiculously inflated population projections, ONE BAY AREA states that future housing must designed in one of their 'approved' smart growth models and developed in a Priority Development Area. What is that? A Priority Development Area (PDA) is a so-called transportation corridor---usually a busy street with a bus line or near a proposed train station. This PDA can be as small as a half-block or as large as a square mile. All of the projected new population for the next 25 years will be accomodated by housing within this designated area. No other housing developments will be approved for the next 25 years---or the city will not get their piece of the transportation funding. We're talking about 200 Billion dollars of federal and state transportation dollars for the SF Bay Area over the 25 year term.
Do you see what this will do to property values outside of the specific PDA's? It will destroy them. Do you see what this does to individual cities? It destroys their sovereignty. ONE BAY AREA is a regional plan that breaks down boundaries and pushes UN Agenda 21. Northern California is one of 11 Mega Regions in the US. It includes 31 counties, 48,000 square miles, 15 million people, and part of TWO STATES--California and NEVADA. Do you see how this happens? We thought we had 50 states, but now we have ELEVEN MEGA REGIONS. Using transportation dollars, grants, legislation (SB 375 & AB 32 in California), and pressure, your government is destroying your ability to be self-determining.
Video is up now on our site (video page) and on YouTube. Watch it and USE IT. We guarantee you that you'll have a chance real soon.
