B) Raliegh NC City Council Dec 4 2012 Fluoride water
John Odom, Councilmember, District B , Email ( John.Odom@raleighnc.gov ):
"Well, I drink the water that the city of Raliegh puts out and I think it's the best in the country. I've supported it for the 14 years I've been on this council. And I certainly have no fear of making that statement. And I think this council has tried, over a number of times that you've all have been down here, to tell you that. . Ahh, ...as far as answering questions, I think we've answered ALL of the questions; that we are standing behind the product,... the water that we've developed in this city here, for all of our citizens. I'm behind it yesterday and today ."
After repeated assurances, via phone and email, from the Raleigh City Clerks office that the WTVD11 news piece about the dangers of water fluoridation would be played at the Raleigh City Council meeting Tuesday evening, 12-04-2012… After Mr. Corey Sturmer being assured by the producer of the local ABC affiliate’s piece that a camera crew would be there to document the viewing of the piece featuring the anti-fluoride activist… After trumpeting the call to December’s Fluoride Fightin’ Tuesday via Planet Infowars and other social media…
This band of patriots was met with stiff resistance. The Council refused to allow the piece to be played. The crew failed to show. That resistance was met with the truth.
We spoke truth to power. We are the resistance. Mr. Corey Sturmer was not deterred by the cowardice of the Council and delivered a brilliant and thought provoking speech educating a Council dissociated from reality. Mr. Rocco Piserchia did not cower beneath the glare of a Council clearly irritated at the audacity of a citizen questioning Agenda 21. Ms. Katie Haberman was riveting and powerful as she calmly questioned the practice of putting hazardous toxic waste in the water. The fear of a Raleigh City Council faced with those simple questions resounded with deafening silence. That fear was questioned by myself, Marcus Hill.
Councilman John Odom asserted that he did not fear placing hazardous toxic waste in the water. In fact: “I drink the water the city of Raleigh puts out, and I think it’s the best in the country. I’ve supported it the 14 years I’ve been on this council and I certainly have no fear of making that statement.”
Councilman Odom was not afraid to tell me my time was up when I asked him about lead and arsenic added under the umbrella of water fluoridation.
Dissociation from reality does not protect one from reality. The dissociation from reality that plagues our Republic was epitomized by members of the Raleigh City Council raising their glasses of toxic waste-laden water and responding to the call to remove the poison with a sophomoric “CHEERS!”
*** ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) and Agenda 21 [see review further below]
See list at bottom of this page for all US cities (and other countries) who have joined the UN's Agenda 21 ICLEI program (including Raleigh, of course), and are in urgent need of help from motivated citizen/patriots to have their city's name REMOVED from that list and get their local city councils to work in FAVOR of American interests and stop assisting the UN/ Globalist agenda to destroy America.
The request form contains completion and submission directions. It is not necessary to submit a request to speak during scheduled public hearings.

ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives)
Citizen Review Online

Follow some of the counties and towns fighting to withdraw from ICLEI here.
US Cities, Counties begin to listen to citizens and withdraw from ICLEI
ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives) is facilitating the Local Government input and preparations for the World Summit on Sustainable Development (Johannesburg August 2002) with the support of the UN Summit Secretariat and in partnership with major international associations of local governments, including hundreds within the United States.
ICLEI is the international environmental agency for local governments. ICLEI's mission is to build and serve a worldwide movement of local governments to achieve tangible improvements in global environmental and sustainable development conditions through cumulative local actions.
According to their website: "The organization's name is 'ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability'. In 2003, ICLEI's Members voted to revise the organization's mission, charter and name to better reflect the current challenges local governments are facing. The 'International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives' became 'ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability' with a broader mandate to address sustainability issues."
Building a worldwide movement requires that ICLEI functions as a democratic, international association of local governments. Serving a worldwide movement requires that ICLEI operates as an international environmental agency for local governments.
More than 1,200 cities, towns, counties, and their associations from around the world are full Members of the Council, with hundreds of additional local governments participating in specific ICLEI campaigns and projects. As a movement, association, and agency, ICLEI continues to work towards its environmental and sustainable development goals.
As more information about this scheme reaches citizens across the United States, county commissioners are beginning to listen, and some are withdrawing from the organization, along with some cities.
Only 3 clicks of a mouse takes you from ICLEI's website to the United Nation's Agenda 21 documentation.
