A Letter To Your Governor on ICLEI

Hello Everyone,

The concerns of ICLEI/International Council Of Local Enviromental
Initiatives are contintuing to grow. Agenda 21 just made national news

This letter was sent to me by the Faceoff Movement. Feel free to
substitute Governor's name and Attorney General's name where
appropriate then send to the Governors in your state.

Beginning Of Letter


The Honorable Rick Scott
Governor of Florida
State of Florida
The Capitol
400 S. Monroe St.
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001

Dear Governor Scott,

Sir, the purpose of this letter is to bring to your immediate
attention an issue of great importance to the citizens of Florida and
indeed the nation.

On July 8, 2010 (1) the County Council of Volusia County, Florida
adopted: RESOLUTION 2010-106.

This Resolution authorized membership in the INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL FOR
(ICLEI) with a yearly fee of $2750.00. The ICLEI membership list (2)
includes 41 other local Florida governmental entities as well as over
600 City and County governments across the United States.

The ICLEI Charter, (3) indicates that it acts as an arm of the UN.
ICLEI (4) was founded at the 1990 World Congress of Local Governments
for a Sustainable Future, at the United Nations in New York.

ICLEI's International Goals (5) (5A) include facilitating local
governments in the adoption and implementation of United Nations
Foreign Policies initiatives that the United States Congress have not
approved. Most significant of these are:

The UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)
The Kyoto Protocols

ICLEI and the UN have disregarded the, U.S. Congress and the
Constitution of the United States by officially recognizing cities and
local governments as 'governmental stakeholders" at the recent UN
climate talks in Cancun (COP16). ICLEI stated (6) that "Local
governments have to deal with the (climate change) problem…whether
there is a global agreement between national governments or not".
ICLEI has cited (8) "The influence of elections and new governments…"
as obstacles to be overcome in the success of implementing Agenda 21.

ICLEI itself references (7) its association with the UN and the
advancement of Agenda 21 with this quotation from its web site:

"During the Local Government Session at the World Summit in
Johannesburg, South Africa (August 2002) local government leaders from
around the world, as well as representatives from the United Nations
Development Programme (UNDEP) , United Nations Environment Programme
(UNEP), UN-HABITAT and the World Health Organization (WHO), joined
ICLEI in launching Local Action 21 as the next phase of Local Agenda
21 (LA21)".

ICLEI further reveals its mission to implement Agenda 21 at the local
level with this: (8) "The number of cities and towns embracing Local
Agenda 21 planning is continuing to grow as…regional and international
campaigns supporting Local Agenda 21 practices recruit cities and
towns worldwide. In addition, the APEC economies, have committed to
doubling their Local Agenda 21 cities by the year 2003 in cooperation
with ICELI".

The UN influence has also infiltrated the International City/County
Managers Association (ICMA) which is actively training managers in
Smart Growth and Sustainable Development policies which stem directly
from Agenda 21 and the CBD.

The United States Constitution delegates ONLY to the U.S. Senate the
authority to promulgate and implement foreign policy initiatives which
are approved by the Congress.

I respectfully request that you, as Governor of Florida, have Attorney
General Pam Bondi review this issue in light of Article 1, Section 10
of the U.S. Constitution: "No State shall enter into any Treaty,
Alliance or Confederation…" . As local governments are political
subdivisions of the State, they are bound by the same prohibition.

Pursuant to this, a directive should be issued to all State Agencies
and to all Florida local governments advising the immediate
termination of any affiliation with ICLEI and to cease and desist in
any initiative related to ICLEI and the above mentioned UN initiatives
which the Congress of the United States have not adopted..

Thank you for your attention to this major issue.


My signature confirms my support of the concerns in above letter.
