FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Senate and House members of the General Assembly attended a presentation on Agenda 21, Sustainable Development given by Donna Holt, Executive Director of Virginia Campaign for Liberty, on Monday, January 14 at the Capitol in Richmond.

Former Lt. Governor John Hager, non-incumbent candidates for Lt. Governor, Stafford County Board of Supervisors Chairman Susan Stimpson and Bishop E. W. Jackson, several county supervisors and property rights activists were also in attendance.

Mrs. Holt disclosed the official documents published by countless federal agencies and non-government organizations for the "transformation of society". It was revealed that Sustainable Development, as defined by the Bruntland Commission in 1987, has a much more nefarious meaning than one might expect.

"Average working people as well as local and state lawmakers have no idea what sustainable development really means, and even less knowledge of how it will transform our great Commonwealth. If it continues to unfold as it has in the last decade, life in Virginia will be quite different in the future. In truth, the hidden agenda behind sustainable development is so all-encompassing, it is the single greatest threat to liberty and property in our lifetime", says Holt.

Carol Stopps, Chairman of the legislative committee for the Virginia Tea Party Patriots, said she and her team of over 100 bill readers will read every bill in the 2013 session of the General Assembly. They have already identified more than 50 bills traceable to Agenda 21 they will oppose.

Donna Holt said she is working with several members of the General Assembly on legislation to protect private property rights this year and vowed to continue to do so in the years to come.

Due to limited seating, the Executive Director of Virginia Association of Counties, James Campbell, was turned away from the invitation only event but was given the option to invite Donna Holt to brief his group in the near future.
