This is a screenshot taken from ICLEI AFRICA yesterday evening. http://locs4africa.iclei.org/presentation-day-3/
What is important about it is the Local Action Counter box you see on the right side of the page. This shows that 7,807 cities in the world are members of this international organization designed to establish a parallel global governance structure. This counter box has been removed from most of ICLEI's sites and affiliates, but they missed this one. If you go to ICLEI.org and look for their current membership you'll find the old 2008 figures (which may have been false then) showing just 1,200 members worldwide.
ICLEI is under-representing their influence. Why?
What does ICLEI (pronounced ICK-LY) stand for? International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. It was created as a non-governmental spin-off by the United Nations in 1990 to implement Agenda 21 locally across the world.
ICLEI is a public private partnership. Your local government is a member but there is no transparency: ICLEI is a non-profit, non-governmental group. You have no access to meetings, information sessions, or plenary sessions unless you are a member. Headquartered in Bonn, Germany, ICLEI is a lobbying and policy group that is designed to influence and change local governmental policies related to all aspects of human life.
By concentrating power in cities this group circumvents requirements for ratification of international treaties and gives the illusion of local control. In fact the cities then ally in regional conglomerates which break jurisdictional boundaries and will destroy local control. Ultimately this facilitates global governance by invalidating individual cities, counties, states, and nations with contractual agreements and interwoven systems.
How many cities in the United States are members? It's almost impossible to know at this moment because ICLEI still shows only 600 or so members on its ICLEI USA website. This is a lie. To see what ICLEI was claiming as total United States membership in June 2012 please click here to go to a pdf of a screenshot that we took from ICLEI's international website in June.
The screenshot also shows the top 15 countries for ICLEI membership in the world. The United States is number two.
ICLEI is claiming over 1,300 members in the United States. That is CITY/COUNTY members, not individuals. This means that literally the majority of Americans are living in ICLEI cities. The most populous cities in the United States are ICLEI members including New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Portland, and Miami. Millions of Americans are in ICLEI cities.
ICLEI is a parallel government, an arm of the United Nations, and is being used to establish regional governance worldwide. It is structured like the United Nations with a hierarchy of committees ranging up to a Global Executive Committee.
A fundamental element of UN Agenda 21 is the sharing of information. ICLEI facilitates this sharing by selling greenhouse gas monitoring software and creating spin-off organizations that monitor, rank, and report 'progress.' Energy. Water. Procurement. Attitudes. Identifying 'partners' and detractors. ICLEI is the eyes and ears of UN Agenda 21 in your city, county, nation, and world.
Remember: if you get your city to drop its membership in the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives you will have to pressure and agitate for a purging of ICLEI influence on your city's policies. Cities will drop their membership to pacify you while continuing to use ICLEI policies and 'toolbox' to change your life.
Regionalization is the stepping stone to GLOBAL GOVERNANCE. If you value your freedom, your right to speak freely, to dissent, then you will FIGHT ICLEI.
USE OUR FLYERS (OR MAKE YOUR OWN) TO EDUCATE YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND FELLOW CITIZENS ABOUT ICLEI AND UN AGENDA 21.
Watch this video to see us demand that a local city sever its membership ties to ICLEI and then watch what that city does. Don't be discouraged. Keep on working--you are part of a huge grassroots non-partisan worldwide movement for freedom.
