Mississippi Tea Party to fight Agenda 21 with awareness campaign

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Members of the Mississippi Tea Party plan to fight Agenda 21 with a statewide awareness campaign.

An overview of Agenda 21 was presented by the Tea Party and the Hattiesburg 912 Project Tuesday evening at the Breland Community Center in Hattiesburg.

Agenda 21 is an action plan developed by the United Nations in 1992, related to sustainable development. It is a blueprint of action to be taken by organizations of the United Nations, governments, and major groups in every area in which humans directly affect the environment.

Members of the Tea Party says Agenda 21 is really a disguise for more government control. They say the goals of Agenda 21 are the abolishment of private property ownership  the education of the children for global citizenship.

"Sustainable development has a lot of different definitions, depending on who is giving the definition," said Jennifer West, Chairperson of the Agenda 21 Committee. "What they like for you to believe is that they are conserving our planet and our resources for the future generations will still have them available. But it's a mass way to control our lives, take our property, and educate our children for global citizenship."

According to the Tea Party over 1000 Mayors across the country have signed onto Agenda 21, taking greater control over how property is used in sustainable development.
