Regaining control of our town from U.N. planning agenda

If adopted as is, Brattleboro’s proposed 2012 Town Plan will green-light a permanent town-wide confiscation of private land and would constitute the summary abridgment of our Fifth Amendment property rights.

And they persist in shrieking their alarmist predictions of doom despite the fact that they are no longer hamstrung by having to rely solely on the lies disseminated by the despicable and roundly discredited Intergovernmental...
