Stand for Sovereignty

A news conference sponsored by the American Policy Center. APC buries Capitol Hill under 1.5 tons of petitions during a national news conference.

On September 7th, 2000, as nearly every head of state and world leader gathered at the United Nations headquarters in New York City for its Millennium Summit, the American Policy Center delivered more than 350,000 petitions to Capitol Hill calling for an end to the Untied States membership in the UN.

The petitions, weighing more than 1.5 tons, served as the backdrop as Rep. Ron Paul and the late Rep. Helen Chenoweth-Hage spoke to reporters about the threat to the United States posed by the UN. More leaders who spoke at the event hosted by APC president Tom DeWeese, were Henry Lamb of Sovereignty International, Herb Titus and Kent Snyder of the Liberty Study Committee and Cliff Kincaid of American’s Survival.

Aired to millions over CSPAN cable netwok the news conference helped APC launch a renewed war against the UN’s relentless drive for global governance and rally thousands of Americans to Stand for Sovereignty.
