United Nations To Take Over The Alamo

October 29, 2013

San Antonio, Texas Mayor Julián Castro is currently negotiating with the United Nations to designate the Alamo as a UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Site, meaning that a blue UN flag may fly above the historic shrine of liberty once it falls under UN control.

The Alamo chapel.

UNESCO, a specialized agency within the UN, created the World Heritage Site status out of a 1972 international agreement, which calls for nations to join together to manage historical sites through “collective assistance.”

“San Antonio has the opportunity for its five Spanish Colonial Missions [including the Alamo] to be nominated to be the first UNESCO World Heritage site in the State of Texas and the 22nd World Heritage designation in the United States,” the October 2013 City of San Antonio newsletter reads.

The Alamo consists of both the Alamo chapel and the surrounding compound now referred to as the Alamo Plaza.

The Alamo chapel, which is what people tend to picture when they hear the name “Alamo,” is managed by the Texas General Land Office and the Daughters of the Republic of Texas.

The Alamo Plaza, where most of the fighting took place during the 1836 Battle of the Alamo, is administered by the City of San Antonio.

During the battle, at least 189 Alamo defenders sacrificed their lives for liberty instead of surrendering to the tyrannical Mexican president Antonio López de Santa Anna.

The Alamo emerged from the battle as a sacred shrine for individual freedom in the face of collective evil.

Now the shrine is besieged by the collective UN, whose policies follow Santa Ana’s dictatorial rule rather than the values the Alamo defenders died for “in the name of Liberty, of patriotism and everything dear to the American character” as Alamo Commander William B. Travis wrote in Feb. 1836.

How exactly would UN management affect the Alamo?

In 2002, the UNESCO World Heritage Center published a manual entitled “Managing Tourism at World Heritage Sites,” which outlines UN obligations that the historic site managers are expected to follow.

The manual states that it is “the duty of the international community as a whole to cooperate” in managing World Heritage Sites, meaning that bureaucrats from China or France could oversee and influence the Alamo’s operation.

One of the “protection obligations” of a World Heritage Site is the requirement to “use the World Heritage logo,” meaning that the Alamo Plaza would be adorned with UN symbols.

A UN flag may even be hoisted above the Alamo, which is typical at World Heritage Sites such as the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site in Illinois.

The manual also suggests strategies for restricting public access to heritage sites due to “environmental concerns” under the guise of “sustainable” tourism, borrowing key words from Agenda 21.

Some may say that if the Alamo is designated a World Heritage Site, which is expected by 2015, the UN wouldn’t necessarily control it because the Alamo would “remain” under sovereign jurisdiction.

Yet as we constantly see with Agenda 21, local city governments adopt policies “recommended” by the UN as if they were law.

The UN’s pressure has already been felt in San Antonio after the city nixed a proposed downtown hotel tower because it would have jeopardized the Alamo’s World Heritage status.

Other downtown businesses may suffer worse fates because, under the terms of the World Heritage Convention, governments are expected to protect heritage sites beyond their borders, infringing upon private property in the process.

In 1995, for example, then President Bill Clinton asked the UN to declare Yellowstone Park in Wyoming a “World Heritage Site in Danger,” giving him the “international obligation” to shut down a private mine three miles away from the park, even though the mine predated the park by 150 years.

Sovereign jurisdiction means little when governments and the UN are completely interconnected.

So once again, 177 years after the historic battle for liberty, the Alamo is under siege.

    I consider the United Nations (UN) an evil waste of American money and a forum for dictatorial regimes worldwide. I’m more concerned about treaties like the Arms Trade Treaty that actually erode our sovereignty. Having the UN designate sites in the US as World Heritage Sites does not worry me in the slightest. μολὼν λαβέ (molon labe) is all I can say. We have not given them title to anything. Who do you think provides the majority of the firepower for UN military action – the US. Barack 0bama is more likely to defile The Alamo than the UN.

    This is a list of UNESCO World Heritage sites:

    Do you really think that China would allow the UN to own the Great Wall or the Imperial Palaces? Or that Russia would really allow the UN to own the Kremlin?

    Likewise, the UN does not own Independence Hall, the Statue of Liberty, or Monticello. Has the UN sent its minions to mess with any of these?

    Texas will still own The Alamo. The UN will not administer the site. The Daughters of the Republic of Texas will continue to administer the site.

    Worry about the treaties and protocols issuing forth from the UN instead of imagined fears.

  2. This is another reason we are trying to Recall Julian Castro. If you want to sign go to Recall Castro SA on Facebook or Recall SA on Twitter. There are events listed to go sign or even just volunteer. The Alamo is special to us Texans. We have to stop this. Please come out and sign the Recall and lets remove this guy before any more damage is done to our great city/state.

    This is an insult to all Texans, an insult to the battle for individual freedoms, and the people of Texas should not allow it!!!
    I despise the UN and what is has become, it no longer is a watchdog for wrong doing it has become the to of wrong doing. It shod be resisted at all costs

    I too believe everything I read, cuz I’m a Texan, and proud of it. Yeah, don’t give sovereign US landmarks to other countries! Let’s focus all our energy on this, cuz clearly, this story is 100% accurate (proven by the fact that the lame-stream media hasn’t covered it). If I read it, it’s true! Texas forever, or at least as long as we can hold on to it with only a highschool education.

    I believe that, Texas should take back ALL National Parks, &, convert them to State Parks. Get ALL feds, out of Texas.

  7. The people of the Republic of Texas will NOT stand for this, however far-fetched this is. The UN flag will never fly over the Alamo, period.

  8. If you want to protect Texas, look at the Texas Nationalist Movement, sign the petition to give Texans a voice in their future!
