    1. Thank you : ) !! Yes I have read Rosa’s book, I have her video (well one of them) on the Agenda 21 page. We are seeing A21 unfolding here in our nation also. Very evident in our local district councils now. Some documented on our Local Government Watch pages.

    1. Was meaning the “local govt watch” pages are on my site here. Our LG I recently heard, wants to change to selected not elected reps. (Which will be those who don’t represent the people). Already they don’t represent the people fully. One LG I heard recently, the Mayor strategically handpicks those who are on committees.. those with like minds. They are also told how to vote with bully tactics. That info is on the pages I mention (LG watch). Another good watch on A21 is Anne Bressington, an Australian. She’s on the A21 page also. She blew the whistle on what’s happening there. And a NZer has also written on it, Naomi Jacobs she is on the A21 in NZ page. : )
