THE HIDDEN AGENDA EXPOSED

Annual Meeting Tapes

THE EGA TAPES

1992 Fall Retreat held at Rosario Resort on Orcas Island, Washington State
 

For background on the Environmental Grantmakers Association, see our EGA profile.

The EGA's annual retreats are strategy planning sessions during which grantmakers lay their plans for the coming year. The classic gathering was in 1992, when key foundation leaders laid out their intentions to hijack the environmental movement with the goal of remaking the world in their own image. Twenty-four sessions of the 1992 annual retreat were taped by a professional recording service.

The Center for the Defense of Free Enterprise purchased a copy of all 24 tapes and transcribed 8 selected tapes word for word without editing. These transcriptions reveal the hidden agenda of social control that lay behind the public face of environmentalism.

Read the plans of these foundation rulers in their own words. Much of what you see happening around you today was orchestrated more than a decade ago by people you never heard of, who are not affected by their own actions, and who care nothing for your well-being.

For a stark contrast, see the Bill Moyers 2001 Keynote Speech given to the EGA a month after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States.
