Letter: Wildlife classifications could lead to land seizures

U.N. plan could harm rural America

EDITOR: Somewhere in an office, a federal bureaucrat committee is deciding which river will be designated as a "blueway." It's part of the United Nations' Agenda 21 "wildlands project." It will include the river and all tributaries, even creeks and ponds. Alongside the waterways will be "greenways," gobbling up all the land along the waterways, creating a buffer.

This is happening right now in Missouri and Arkansas, starting in Springfield, Mo., and going down to Arkansas, taking up 17.8 million acres and 30,000 acres of productive farmland, according to reports from Doreen Hannes at truthfarmer.org.

While all eyes are on the scandals in Washington, this project is quietly being implemented. Some say plans are underway to basically steal our lands.

There is a risk that the "blueway" will be controlled by a government agency, as will the greenway. If you happen to own a farm inside the area, you may have to get water from the outside, rather than use a pond or any waterway on your property. And just try getting a permit for a well.

This has already begun in Connecticut a year ago. There are hundreds of pages of new rules and regulations.

Let's all contact our so-called leaders in Washington, our state and our county governments, including our sheriff. The word has to get out. Many of us in rural areas are in either blue or green zones. This could be a nightmare.
