Will be voting against it, and so should all well-informed voters. This is a another deception being perpetrated by slimy politicians.
Before you pull the lever in favor of this amendment, I would highly recommend you do a little research on Agenda 21. The United Nations' Agenda 21 program is also associated with the buzz phrase "sustainable development" and the buzz word "depopulation." This is not only very bad for the citizens of the State of Alabama, it is bad for America. Tread carefully my friend.

I am familiar with Agenda 21, but whether or not you view the two as similar, Agenda 21 =/= Forever Wild (you can't simply associate one with the other). On the topic of Forever Wild alone, what are you opposed to?
Forever Wild falls under ICLEI's "Wildlands Project." The Wildlands project, which stems from the UN's Convention on Biological Diversity, envisions making huge parts of the U.S. off-limits to humans. The plan would create enormous "core reserves" to be connected by wildlife corridors and protected by "buffer zones" in which human activities would be highly regulated.
That's exactly what we are seeing with the Forever Wild Project. Forever Wild has already acquired more than 227,000 acres since its creation in 1992 (which not so coincidentally coincides with the creation of Agenda 21). Hunting is allowed on some land tracts, but is not allowed at Eagle Roost, Monsanto and Cathedral Caverns-Kirkland. And pursuant to Agenda 21, the public is prohibited or discouraged from visiting some Forever Wild land such as Coldwater Mountain in Calhoun County or Monsanto (probably the most evil corporation on planet earth BTW). So if the public is forbidden from making use of these land grabs, obviously it is not being done for their benefit but for the benefit of elites who have tendentious considerations a self interest, ie. ICLEI.
The Forever Wild program is being pushed by ICLEI which is a sister organization of the odious Agenda 21 program. ICLEI attempts to surreptitiously implement Agenda 21 through (usually by bribing) local governments just as being done in this instance.
Make no mistake about it. This is Agenda 21 in action by way of ICLEI.

Similar comprehensive planning has been implemented in Richland County, South Carolina. I would recommend you heed their warnings.
A concerted effort to restructure society is under way across the country - case in point - Richland County, South Carolina. Local restructuring process formally
I agree 100%, vote against

Wow I really didn't know anything about forever wild other than the conmercials I saw (wasn't voting either way anyways). Thanks for posting, this is terrible legislation IMO.
Edit: It's also a shame that many people don't know this information. Too bad someone didn't put out some ads on TV about this.

Do NOT be deceived: Agenda 21 is NOT good for Alabamians.
I will be voting NO to this amendment. I hope many informed Alabamians will also be voting against it.
I agree this is not good for Alabama. I will be voting NO.
Voting against as well.

Face palm. So embarrassing.
Haha. Cold Water Mountain is going to be one of the world's best mountain bike parks you twit. You're a liar. People from all over the country are already coming to ride the 11 miles of trail that are open. There will be 60 miles of trail when completed. That is unless all the conspiracy loving dolts vote against it for no reason.

You do realize that Monte Sano and is a mountain with over 70 miles of trails on it and Monsanto is not, right?
You just blew my mind.
Haha. He's so well informed!
That damn mountain with all of those damn trails is just pure damn evil. What a moron.
I bet you're a real thinker.
Vote against bc they are raiding the Alabama trust fund again to fund this.
Explanation - The Forever Wild Land Trust was established in 1992 and since then has aquired over 227,000 acres across the state, available for hunting and recreational use. Forever Wild is funded by 10% of the interest earned by the Alabama Trust Fund. This amendment is seeking to reauthorize using those funds for Forever Wild.
Voting Yes means you are agreeing to use up to $300 million from the Alabama Trust Fun to purchase additional land for the Forever Wild Program.
Voting No means that you do not agree with using Alabama Trust Funds to purchase additional land for the Forever Wild Program, but it does not stop the current use of land already used by the Forever Wild Program.
I'm not too informed on this subject but this is what I received from people who generally are. Maybe you can explain why voting "yes" is the right choice. Based on the little info I have, I don't see voting "yes" as the right choice here but I'm going to the polls in a couple hours. Convince me!
bump for details.

Wrong. It's capped at $15 million per year, but it does take money from oil and gas companies and 10% from the INTEREST earned on the Trust Fund. But, like I said, it's capped at $15 million per year. Don't be scared off by the lunatics. This helps drive tourism in this state and is one of the most successful programs we have.
