Below is transcribed word for word the United Nations plan to secure food controlled and distributed through global governance. Within the total plan (Agenda 21) the farming families will be relocated to urban concentrations and their land used to feed the global populations for “food security”. Here is my favorite line “USA- Publications to help inform peasants and women of other countries access to land and strengthen weaknesses.” (aka what they learn here will be used elsewhere, you know the peasants) In the “partners” section you will find Soros money everywhere!
By limiting ownership and/or use of rural lands/property, three major controls are established:
- High density populations are easier to control versus “sprawl”
- Property/land rights equals access and control of water.
- Communal farming controls the what, when, for who and value of production and farming methods.
Kansas took the lead in condemning Agenda 21 on a National basis. Just farmers with pitchforks huh?

Security: Use rights that enable investment in and sound management of land
|To Drive Sustainable Development in a manner that ensures:|
|Socio-Economic Development and Empowerment|

To facilitate a knowledge-sharing base for participants to gain experience and where possible (in future), replicate programmes and projects on land development for the food security issue.
The workshop identified and determined measures to achieve a more responsive improvement and sustainability in food production and farmers’ livelihood through equitable land development strategies towards poverty eradication from the different parts of the world.
To enable secure and equitable access to land through:
|Empowerment of women|

|How gender concerns over land are addressed.|
|Land and Governance.|
|Strategies for accessing and using resources in protected areas e.g. Forest reserves, Games parks etc.|
The Partners agreed to pursue Networking and Experience Sharing through:
|Identifying, documenting and sharing of appropriate and replicable practices through workings together, meetings and conferences.|
|Establishment of website and CD-ROMs|
|Filming and documentation of case studies|
|Media through Radio, print and television|
|Exchange visits: Land users/beneficiaries Civil Society Organisations|
|Collaborative Implementation with Research Institutions (through research publications). Inform advocacy through community based practice experiences.|

Additional Background Information
Around the globe and at community level, securing access to agricultural land has been identified as a crucial factor in addressing the issue of food insecurity facing over 800m people in the developing countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America. The Distribution of agricultural land in some communities in these countries is highly skewed from communal ownership to a more economic and profit oriented at the expense of food production by social and economic factors, thereby keeps many rural people locked in poverty. This situation is resulting in land disputes and profiteering, allowing the affluent to have more opportunity and privilege to own and control land affairs than the less advantage people in the community, usually women.
