ICLEI: UN’s Tool for Controling Your Local Government

by Aaron Hudlemeyer

Right now, in your town and neighborhood, policies are being implemented that will ultimately eliminate your freedoms and destroy your way of life. Many town officials are selling us out to global regional development with help from the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI): Local Governments for Sustainability. ICLEI is used as one of the mechanisms to undo the political recognition of unalienable rights. “Blur the boundaries, and raid the public treasury and all the people’s riches and their liberty can be gathered up and taken away.” ~Michael Shaw

ICLEI was formed in 1990 when 200 local governments from 43 countries convened in New York at the United Nation’s World Congress of Local Governments for a Sustainable Future. Mandated to “build an active and committed municipal membership of local spheres of government” by the United Nations Environment Program, its stated mission is “to build and serve a worldwide movement of local governments to achieve tangible improvements in global sustainability… through cumulative local actions.” Today ICLEI has grown to 1107 dues paying members with a staff of 223 managing 102 projects around the globe and has a current annual budget of $16.8 million USD. In short, ICLEI is the UN scalpel for dissecting local governments and re-animating them within the framework of global control.

Using the foundational axioms of the Anthropocentric Global Warming (AGW) hoax, ICLEI is geared to implement UN programs such as Local Action 21, Local Agenda 21 and other global to local Constitution dismantling objectives by, according to, “exploiting people’s desire to maintain a healthy and lasting environment in the name of sustainability.” Members are actively engaged in behavior modification and social engineering projects to these ends. As stated on their website they are “Educating community members about climate change and other environmental concerns to a point where it results in behavior change.” In reality, the policies and programs being implemented in and by our local communities through ICLEI are restructuring our representative form of government and transferring authority into regional, non-elected boards (councils). The model for such governing comes straight out of the soviet system playbook on Regionalism as witnessed by the many councils (soviet translates as council) popping up all over America. Watershed councils, fire safety councils, stakeholder councils, special action neighborhood councils and many others are facilitating these public-private partnerships. Isn’t this called corporate fascism?

The Definition of a Soviet:

  • A soviet is a system of councils that report to an apex council and implement a predetermined outcome, often by consensus, affecting a region or neighborhood.
  • Members of a soviet council are chosen by virtue of their willingness to comply with that outcome and their one-mindedness with the group.
  • Soviets are the operating mechanism of a government-controlled economy, whether it be socialism or government-corporate (“public-private”) partnerships. (Excerpt from

ICLEI’s modi operandi include many tactics such as: the infiltration of local politics with agent provocateurs willing to covertly force their agenda; providing hundreds of thousands of dollars in Economic Recovery Funding grants thanks to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act; and distributing “tool kits” to local officials replete with step by step instructions on how to implement the globalist agenda covertly as sustainable development.

The most recent addition to ICLEI propaganda, released December 3, 2009, is their Sustainability Planning Toolkit ( which touts a primary audience of “local government staff responsible for developing and implementing a sustainability plan.” This toolkit provides guidelines and resources for any local government willing to subvert the American system and is based around ICLEI’s Five Milestones for Climate Mitigation -- itself based on AGW -- which includes such actions as taking inventory of greenhouse gases and planning strategies for their reduction and inevitable banning of related products and activities.

As local governments across the country scramble to find funding for education, housing, unemployment, and healthcare, the UN throws meaty sustainability bones at those useful idiots who might truly desire to do the right thing but don’t have the wherewithal to do their own due diligence. Vanessa Ferguson of Michigan’s Mackinac Center for Public Policy wrote in a July 2005 article titled “The Price of Cool” how ironic it is that “the state is handing out hundreds of thousands of dollars in dubious grants at a time when legislators are debating the per-pupil funding for schools, money for higher education and restraining Medicaid benefits” and that these programs are “likely to lose [their] way and simply redistribute wealth in the state.” She made special note of the fact that recent attempts by the state to stimulate economic growth through grants to large cities have been dismal failures. The true nature of ICLEI’s projects are not environmental in nature but cleverly disguised social engineering programs designed to cull the masses like a shepherd rounds his sheep.

We have been lulled into this nightmare by assuming that our freedoms are guaranteed by our Constitution. They’re not! Wake up and take action. Put your local government in check. Visit to discover if your tax dollars are paying ICLEI dues and to find out what actions you can take to prevent the disintegration of America’s core values and our unalienable rights.
