Marysville, Ohio is the first town in Ohio to pass a Resolution Opposing United Nations Agenda 21. Yea, for freedom!
RESOLUTION OPPOSING United Nations Agenda 21
Whereas, the City of Marysville was founded on the basic American principle of private property ownership and the right of local governments to develop communities in ways that are beneficial for its citizens, and
Whereas, the City of Marysville recognizes that natural resources are limited in nature and their consumption should be well planned in order to minimize the negative impact on future generations, and
Whereas, these uniquely American principles may be threatened by Agenda 21 initiated at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, which represents a comprehensive plan of environmentalism, social engineering, population control, international redistribution of wealth, and global political control, and
Whereas, Agenda 21 is being implemented into local communities throughout the United States by the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) in the form of “sustainable development” policies such as Smart Growth, Wildlands Project, Resilient Cities, Regional Visioning Projects, and other “Green” and “Alternative” projects, and these projects are often promoted by offering incentives of financial aid, and
Whereas, the literature of the United Nations Agenda 21 presents a national way of life of private property ownership, single family homes, private car ownership, individual travel choices, and privately owned farms, all as harmful to the environment, and
Whereas, this literature of the United Nations Agenda 21 redefines social justice as socialistic redistribution of wealth, and
Whereas, this United Nations Agenda 21 Plan is being promoted by an international group, unelected and unaccountable to the American citizens, and
Whereas, neither the United States government, nor any state or local government, is legally bound by United Nations Agenda 21 since it has never been ratified by the United States’ Senate, now therefore;
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF MARYSVILLE, OHIO, that:
Section I. The City of Marysville recognizes that land use planning and regulations are best determined by local elected officials and citizens of the City of Marysville, Ohio. Furthermore, the City of Marysville will monitor closely its participation in practices that adopt or contain policies in line with Agenda 21.
Approved by Mayor John Gore on April 1, 2013.
