A Lighting Bolt of Reality

The Forced Relocation of Rural Populations

By J. Zane Walley

This article made possible by a grant from the Paragon Foundation

Is the United Nations threat to America freedoms genuine? For years, I
shrugged such a farfetched notion off. I would listen patiently to very
earnest folks who spouted a seemingly endless stream of dire warnings about
global and one-world government. I reckoned they had fallen under the
influence of the conspiracy conjecturers and spent too much time reading spy
thrillers and watching science fiction.

As I researched the plight of farmers, ranchers, miners, loggers and other
people who made their living from the land, it became apparent that their
livelihoods and homes were being annihilated by international treaties and
agreements. Global pacts hidden darkly in the background apparently drove
major federal government actions that were hostile to people who work the

The first lighting bolt of reality exploded into my dumbed-down brain when a
very knowledgeable scholar gave me a copy of a 1972 environmental law paper
by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources
(IUCN) Morges, Switzerland. In the IUCN paper, The Easement as a
Conservation Technique, chapter two, titled, "The Need for Conservation
Easements in the United States" explains how governmental agencies can
regulate private property without owning or paying for it. It also suggests
that CEs are a method for Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to achieve
regulatory authority. It further explains how state and federal
constitutional private property rights laws could be circumvented.

In researching the IUCN I found that they are the environmental agency of
the United Nations, bringing together 76 states, 111 government agencies,
732 NGOs, 36 affiliates, and some 10,000 scientists and experts from 181
countries. Their membership list of signatory American agencies and NGO has
dumbfounded me.

U.S agencies with IUCN membership and providing funding include: Department
of Agriculture - Forest Service, Department of the Interior, National Park
Service, U.S. Agency for International Development, National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, Department of Commerce and Department of State.

A very few of the many IUCN NGOs members are: The Nature Conservancy,
Defenders of Wildlife, Environmental Defense Fund, National Audubon Society,
National Parks and Conservation Association, National Wildlife Federation,
and Natural Resources Defense Council. In fact, almost all of the Major NGOs
who are wreaking ruin on proud and productive Americans are IUCN

Further research proved that The Tax Reform Act of 1976 incorporated
principles favorable to the IUCN vision. Virtually, elements of the act were
a rubber stamp of the IUCN agenda. Simply summed up, their agenda is global
environmental regulation. To regulate the world environment, they must of
course, regulate the people.

I followed that thread into the spool and stumbled on a United Nations
website, U.N. Protected Areas in the United States. The website contained
129 fine-print pages of U.N. Protected areas in America! 129! Millions upon
millions of acres of our country are listed. Those protected areas are
regulated by the IUCN. When I compared the U.N protected areas to regions
that are under fire from federal regulators and environmental takings that
force people from the land, I found they are the same.

Other documents also have severely unnerved me. The United Nations Program
of Action of the International Conference on Population and Development
produced a how-to-manual, The Forced Relocation of Rural Populations, which
was distributed in Africa and included the stated mission, "To foster a more
balanced spatial distribution of the population by promoting in an
integrated manner equitable and ecologically sustainable development."

One of the concepts advanced in the U.N paper will ring true to countless
rural Americans who helplessly watched their lives be destroyed by
environmental regulations. "When rural resident inhabitants are denied
access to the natural resources essential to their livelihoods, they will be
forced by economics to relocate."

Our own government has two publications in print that will raise your
hackles: The first, Your Rights and Benefits as a Displaced Person,
(Publication No. FHWA-PD-95-010) states, "Government programs designed to
benefit the public often result in acquisition of private property and
sometimes in the displacement of people from their residences, businesses,
or farms." The other pamphlet, Acquiring Real Property for Federal and
Federal Aid Programs and Projects (Publication No. FHWA-PD-95 –005), spells
out how the government can take your land. The U.S Government publications
and the U. N. Manual have analogous themes.

The Endangered Species Act is a concrete example of the authoritarian power
of international treaties over Americans’ rights and property. Read U.S.
Code 16, Sec. 1531 (a) (4) Congressional Findings and Declaration of
Purposes and Policy. You will find that the Endangered Species Act is
conformable to and in accordance with:

(A) migratory bird treaties with Canada and Mexico;
(B) the Migratory and Endangered Bird Treaty with Japan;
(C) the Convention on Nature Protection and Wildlife
Preservation in the Western Hemisphere;
(D) the International Convention for the Northwest Atlantic
(E) the International Convention for the High Seas Fisheries
of the North Pacific Ocean;
(F) the Convention on International Trade in Endangered
Species of Wild Fauna and Flora; and
(G) other international agreements
In a mockery of the "advice and consent" responsibility placed upon the
Senate by our Constitution, the U.S. Senate ratified 34 international
treaties without debate, without a vote, and almost without notice during
the 106th Congress.

So, am I hearing the flutter of black helicopter rotors and the
goose-stepping tread of foreign troops? No. However, the evidence that our
freedoms are being methodically destroyed by federal agencies that kowtow to
international powers is both concrete and public.

The clamor to get America out of The U.N. is direly inadequate. If our
country is to regain sovereignty, we must abrogate all international
treaties and require that our federal bureaus withdraw from U.N pawn
