Stop Agenda 2030

How to Stop Agenda 2030 at the Local Level

by Tom DeWeese, Council Member

Unknown to most people is the existence of hundreds of private, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Each one is an expert at a specific issue or program focused on redeveloping your community to comply with the United Nations’ Agenda 2030. They know exactly how to present their program to local officials and how to apply for the right federal grants to get it started. The NGOs overpower elected officials as they work in the backrooms away from public view. Often, they get their own members appointed to local government positions to further strengthen their control over the direction of government. As NGO influence over government increases, so does government’s power and control over us.

In such a process, local citizens lose their ability to influence development planning, which affects private-property usage, transportation and energy policy, and neighborhood development. In truth, this hidden process is the means to enforce global policy based on “sustainable development” under the threat of climate change. It’s all part of enforcing Agenda 2030. As a result, communities enforce a one-size-fits-all policy in which they look and operate the same, with no input from their citizens.

To stop this, citizens must create a new path to protect the ideals of freedom and representative government. To achieve their goal, citizens must be directly involved in their local governments. First, local citizens must build a team of dedicated volunteers. It doesn’t need to be a large group. The goal is to build a permanent infrastructure that is ready to instantly respond to local government action. Control the debate by standing for the following pillars of freedom: protection of private-property rights, protection and promotion of local businesses, and lifting any rules and regulations that stifle individual liberty.

To begin, keep it simple and focused. Don’t try to take on a huge number of issues. Choose one. Win on that issue and then you can build more success.

To begin, you will need researchers. You must know your enemy before you can fight. Dig into community development plans. This will reveal the policies that are planned along with the NGOs behind them, who often call themselves “stakeholders.” It will also reveal which citizens will be victims of the policies. Hint: Look for a single word that calls for protection of property rights. You won’t find it, because “sustainable” policy cannot be enforced without destroying property rights.

Next you need watchers — three or four people who volunteer to attend every public meeting to just watch and listen. They will learn of new NGO plans before they are implemented.

Finally, all that information will be used by your best spokesmen, the agitators, to take the lead in creating public awareness and influencing elected officials. Others can take that information to the local news media, social media, and neighborhoods via flyers delivered door-to-door. The purpose is to reveal government actions and build constant pressure on your officials.

These are the very basics in creating local organization to counter Agenda 2030. We provide many other tools and resources on our action-project page at The main point is to not fear speaking out. Above all, don’t wait for someone else to do it for you — that’s how the NGOs acquired power in the first place.
