Collecting Rainwater Deemed Illegal - Oregon man gets jail sentence
“I’m sacrificing my liberty so we can wake up as a country”. An Oregon man, Gary Harrington, is in prison on nine counts for collecting his own rainwater (not spring water atrating from a source outside of his own property). He began the first day of his 30 day jail sentence with a warning that the American people need to stand up to a government that is operating completely outside the boundaries of common sense unless they wish to see liberty vanish.

This process is being carried out under the umbrella/inspiration of the United Nations’ Agenda 21 project http://www.un.org/esa/dsd/agenda21/, which demands that member nations adopt “sustainable development” policies that are little more than a disguise for the reintroduction of neo-feudalism and only serve to reduce living standards and increase control.
After an 11-year battle with the state of Oregon, he was found guilty under an old 1925 law. After refusing to follow an order to empty the “reservoirs” (which in reality are little more than large ponds about the size of an acre or so), Harrington decided to follow through with the jail sentence as an example to other Americans as to how far the country has slipped from its constitutional values.
"... officials did not take into account the “historically understood” legal right to collect rain water during wet season."
Harrington pointed out that the state had broken their own law by issuing permits to individuals allowing them to divert water from public supplies, whereas Harrington was merely collecting rainwater that fell on his own property and was not taken from municipal supplies.
