A Call to Action for UN Millennium Summit
Originally posted in IGC Member Conference:
PeaceNet Alerts 10:34 AM Jul 26, 2000
ATTENTION ALL ANTI-GLOBALIZATION, PRO-DEMOCRATIZATION ACTIVISTS!
A Coalition has formed to organize a massive people's presence at the
United Nations Millennium Summit in New York City on September 6-8th, 2000.
This is the largest gathering of heads of state in history, and it demands
the energetic attention of all those fighting against the continued path of
the globalization, militarization and de-democratization of the world.
We are envisioning a week of teach-ins and actions, beginning with the
International Forum on Globalization planned for Sept 5th. This day of
learning focuses on "Economic Globalization and the Role of the United
Nations ." Discussion will center on the question of whether the UN can be
at all salvaged from corporate and super-power dominance. Guest speakers
include Vandana Shiva, Anuradha Mittal, David Korten, Victor Navasky, and
many others. For more info rmation, please visit http://www.ifg.org
September 6th will feature demonstrations targeted at pressuring the UN and
member states to sign, ratify, and implement several specific treaties that
will be considered at the Summit. Please join S6-Mobilization@egroups.com
to help plan for a day of action around proposals such as th e
International Criminal Court, the Tobin Tax, and UNILETS.
September 7th is a day to demand that the increasing militarization of the
world must stop, and that the people do not tolerate games such as Star
Wars to be played out between the elites at the expense of human ity.
Rather, attention, research and money must be funneled toward the developme
nt of energy-saving, environment-protecting technologies that will keep the
earth safe and sustainable for future generations.
September 8th will be the culmination of the weeks events, with attention
directly aimed at the non-democratic structures of all international
institutions that keep the will of the people from being implemented .
Please join S8-Mob@topica.com to help plan for a day demanding a truly
democratic world that works for the people and the planet -- not free trade
and corporate profit.
Below is the official call for the Mass Action on Sept 8th. Included in it
is more contact info, including information on how your organization can
endorse this call to action and/or contribute financially.
Our Current List of Endorsers and Steering Committee members are : 50 Years
is Enough; Jubilee 2000 Global South; Corporate Watch; Program on
Corporations, Law, and Democracy; Economic Justice for Africa Now; the Free
Burma Coalition and the Coalition for Dignity & Amnesty for Undocumented
Please help forward this call to the rest of the world via all your
networks and activist listserves.
The People's Summit:
Making the United Nations accountable to the peoples of the world.
On September 6-8, 2000, the United Nations will host the UN Millennium
Summit, the largest gathering of heads of state in history, to set the
agenda for the world for the new millennium. Political and corporate
leaders will consider the ratification of over 500 treaties that declare
the need for economic, social, political, and cultural human rights for all
peoples. However, the hierarchical structure and openness to corporate
influence of the UN, make it close to impossible for the will of the people
to be implemented and renders it a forum for impotent rhetoric.
The UN Charter opens with the words "We, the People". The theme of the UN
Millennium Summit is "We the Peoples: The Role of the United Nations in the
21st Century." To ensure The People are represented, all are invited to
converge for a People's Summit in the streets of New York City on Sept. 8th
in recognition of this historic concentration of power and to send our
message that a radically different system is needed.
In light of the deepening crises of poverty, racism, armed conflict,
ecological devastation, militarization, human rights abuses, exploitative
labor, cultural dissolution, the further impoverishment of the peoples of
the global South, the eroding democracy caused or exacerbated by corporate
globalization, and the corporate agenda of the IMF, World Bank, and WTO,
and to have any hope of elevating the quality of life of all the world's
people, the goal of the Millennium Summit of World Leaders MUST be to
democratize political structures and the international economy.
S8 Mobilization is a coalition of international organizations working to
mobilize a massive people's presence at the Millennium Summit to reclaim
the United Nations for all and to advance a people's agenda for the 21st
century. S8 Mobilization supports the founding mission of the United
Nations to end war by fostering peace and true security through solidarity
and we hold this mission as one of our own. We must not allow the corporate
takeover of the United Nations, its adoption of the goals of the
multinational private sector, or the continued subversion of its efforts by
the United States. We must demand a truly democratic United Nations that
works for people and the planet -- not free trade and corporate profit.
Join us to tell the "leaders" of the world what real global human
development is. On September 8th, bring your ideas of what democracy really
looks like to the streets of New York City for a day of protest, direct
action and international celebration. Just as on the streets of Seattle,
DC, Philly and LA , the voices of the people will be heard in New York and
will not be silenced until real change comes.
Our mobilization needs your support.
Our meetings are: Tuesdays at 6pm at The Church Center for the UN.
777 UN Plaza, 44th Street (between 1st and 2nd Avenues); 7th Floor

Subject: Fw: FL:URL: Code of ethics for spiritual guides
Date: Sat, 5 Aug 2000
I've read this code of ethics and found them pretty good. They would
also be very good for identifying people who claim to be spiritual
guides but are actually just headcopping or scamming others. No
spiritual teacher worth paying attention to would do anything that
went against this code, although their practices may transcend them
while including them.
But of course, it is always ultimately the responsibility of the
student. Don't let anyone cop (steal, delude, take over) your head and
your ability to make decisions for yourself!

Subject: WORLD BANK PRIVATISES THIRD WORLD WATER RIGHTS
Date: Fri, 4 Aug 2000
WORLD BANK PRIVATISES THIRD WORLD WATER RIGHTS
Several years ago, Ismail Serageldin, Vice-President of the World Bank,
said that the wars of the 21st century will be about water. He was
referring to the fact that the world is running out of fresh water sources
at an alarming rate, and that conflict over what remains will be inevitable.
To respond to the crisis, the World Bank has recently adopted a policy of
water privatisation and full-cost water pricing. This policy is causing
great distress in many Third World countries, which fear that their
citizens will not be able to afford the cost of privatised water.
Two years ago, the World Bank (whose official attends Bolivian Government
cabinet meetings as a full participant) refused to guarantee a
US$25-million loan to refinance water services in Cochabamba, Bolivia's
third-largest city, unless the government sold the public water system to
the private sector and passed on the costs to consumers, Only one bid was
considered, and the utility was turned over to a subsidiary of a
conglomerate led by Bechtel - the giant engineering company implicated in
the infamous Three Gorges Dam in China, which has caused the forced
relocation of 1.3 million people.
In January 1999, before the company had even hung up its shingle, it
announced the doubling of water prices. For most Bolivians, this meant that
water would now cost more than food; for those on a minimum wage or
unemployed, water bills suddenly accounted for close to half their monthly
To add insult to injury, the World Bank granted monopolies to private water
concessionaires, announced its support for full-cost water pricing, pegged
the cost of water to the US dollar, and declared that none of its loan
could be used to subsidise the poor for water services. All water, even
from community wells, required permits to access, and peasants and small
farmers even had to buy permits to gather rainwater on their property.
This is a story unfolding in many parts of the world. Just as humanity is
beginning to come to terms with the awesome dimensions of the looming
fresh-water crisis, a handful of transnational water and food corporations,
backed by the World Bank, are moving in on Third World countries and, in
the name of human charity, commodifying their water for profit. These
corporations openly dominated the UN/World Bank-sponsored World Water Forum
in The Hague in March.
The privatisation of municipal water services has a terrible record that is
well documented. Customer rates are doubled or tripled; corporate profits
rise as much as 700 per cent; corruption and bribery are rampant; water
quality standards drop, sometimes dramatically; overuse is promoted to make
money; and customers who can't pay are cut off. When privatisation hits
the Third World, those who can't pay will die.
At least the Bolivia story has a happy ending (for now). By the hundreds of
thousands, Bolivians marched to Cochabamba in an anti-government protest.
On 10 April, they won: the Bolivian Government kicked Bechtel out of the
country and revoked its water privatisation legislation.
Oscar Olivera, the Bolivian shoemaker who led the fight, had brought his
message to a Washington rally during the recent N F/World Bank meetings. He
said that if water is privatised and commodified for profit, it will never
reach the people who need it but will serve only to make a handful of water
corporations very rich.

Subject: Chemtrail-UFO link
Date: Mon, 31 Jul 2000
MUFON Skywatch Investigations George A. Filer, Director, Mutual UFO Network Eastern
WARNING INCREASED ALERT
I've followed the UFO situation for more than twenty years and its hard to explain but, I have a feeling something is very wrong, but it is not much more than a hunch. Consequently, I need help from anyone reading this report to use your resources to collect data about this new turn in events. My strong premonition is based on some reliable information that started a couple years back when Chuck Warren, told me he was photographing low level contrails made by large four engine white jet aircraft flying over the Philadelphia area. I have some 5,000 flying hours and have often seen contrails being formed by our aircraft, but never at these lower levels. We generally flew at 30,000 feet or higher in our C-141 Starlifter and often I observed four contrails developing well behind the engines, these would combine into on long contrail that would soon dissipate. Jet aircraft engines emit tiny particles that serve as condensation nuclei. At high altitudes water vapor collects on these particles and crystallizes, and in turn creating streaks of frozen water vapor otherwise known as contrails.
Chuck and his friends assured me these were not normal contrails, that the aircraft were flying much too low to form the standard contrails. He showed me some film of what appeared to be a white 707 or KC-135 aircraft flying at a few thousand feet leaving two contrails. The spray was coming from the tail area and not from the engines. According to hundreds of reports this spray called chemtrails falls to the ground and often makes some people sick with flu like symptoms and skin rashes. The planes are often seen flying in a crisscross checkerboard pattern and soon the whole sky is clouded over. Weather satellite photos also show the operation from space. These photos can be seen at several websites such as www.contrail connection.com.
I first thought the government was spraying perhaps due to the Nile Fever scare. I checked with some old tanker Air Force and National Guard people all of whom denied any knowledge of the spraying. Samples of the chemtrails have been collected and are alleged to contain various toxins and reportedly red and white blood cells, and other unidentified cell types. Using a sub micron fiber sample these appear to be cells of a desiccated freeze dried nature. These samples were sent to the EPA who thus far have given unsatisfactory answers. Their response has been that aircraft normally form contrails and spread toxins similar to cars exhaust. There is nothing to worry about.
On July 9, 2000, I was at Long Beach Island, New Jersey over looking at the Atlantic Ocean when I noticed a white four engine jet making a long contrail. It was a very thick heavy contrail in a beautiful blue sky. I looked left towards New York and the contrail was at least fifty miles long. Within a few seconds I looked back to the front of the contrail to get a closer look at the aircraft and it had disappeared. I searched the sky with binoculars, but it was gone. The contrail had suddenly stopped where I last saw the aircraft. I thought that was very strange, but perhaps I just lost it in the clear blue sky?
At the recent MUFON Conference Louisiana State Director Greg Avery explained his video camera was picking up UFOs inside the chemtrails and showed us some videos to that effect. Greg is a private trail lawyer whose philosophy concerning UFOs is: "that more often than not the evidence of the existence of flying saucers would have been judged a "proven fact" a long time ago if the question and the evidence had been put before an American jury using the same standards of proof used in civil trials for more than two hundred years." Driving home from the MUFON conference the Georgia State MUFON director who is a retired Chief of Police and others saw aircraft spraying. All those in the car noticed the contrails. While they were watching the spaying from the aircraft it disappeared. These are high quality witnesses, they are not mistaken. I've learned from other contrail experts this has happened before. To my knowledge humans do not possess aircraft that can disappear. The spraying is real, therefore I suspect that UFOs are involved. I want to know what they are spraying and why. The UFO and the chemtrial phenomena may have moved to a new level of seriousness.
My inquiries lead me to believe no one in government is noticing or analyzing the data? If anyone happens to see an aircraft at low level making contrails I urge you to videotape and get other witnesses watching. The more important the witness you can notify the better. Attempt to collect the spray. For example, large plates, plastic or your car's hubcaps could be used to collect the liquid. Once the spray lands use Q tips to collect the spray and put into clean glass or plastic containers. Keep a record of what's happening. Let me know and I will give you an address to send the samples and videotapes. There is an urgent need for airborne sample collection flying behind the airborne chemtrails. This could be dangerous, but airborne samples would be much more valuable if properly collected and recorded.
I also suggest you put your name and address on this letter and send it to the most powerful person you know. We are attempting to get the news media and politicians aware of this potential problem. I will be on the Jeff Rense show Tuesday night to talk more about it. The EPA wrote David Peterson at the Chemtrail Research Fund on February 22, 2000. "We are not aware of any program to disperse fibrous material on the US population. My experience is that the government authorities are not engaged in quiet research to determine the problem, but tend to scoff at our efforts.
I wish to caution the reader that our data is not proven, the results of this spraying could be either helpful or hurtful to mankind. We are attempting to collect data and sort this out. We have obtained reports from almost every state in the US and numerous foreign countries such as Australia, England, France, Holland, Italy, New Zealand, Scotland, and Sweden.
The following are Essential Elements of Information that we need collected: Describe the craft and how it seems to disappear? Report location, date, time, speed, angle above the horizon, distance, size, etc. We can estimate altitude of the craft based on the angle and distance. For example, if the aircraft was 800 feet away at 30 degrees above the horizon its altitude would be 762 feet. Caution concerning your reports. High flying aircraft with contrails are a normal situation. Generally an aircraft smaller than your thumb nail at arm's length is at altitudes where normal contrails form. If the aircraft is larger than your thumb at arm's length it is unlikely contrails will naturally form and these should be especially videotaped. Attempt to get an overall wide angle view of the scene before and after zooming in on the object.
The obvious possibility is that the chemtrails are being spread by white unidentified flying objects that appear fairly normal until they suddenly disappear. It is much too early to come to conclusions, but it is important to collect data on this phenomenon. I certainly suspect a control system is operating. The phenomenon may be forcing us through a learning curve. The chemtrails and recent reports of threatening UFOs indicate a potentially more serious situation is developing. The following Kentucky report and those from Sweden and Australia help confirm this data.
KENTUCKY/TENNESSEE CONTRAIL CRAFT DISAPPEARS
On July 17, 2000, Georgia State Director Tom Sheets (this writer), ASD Mark Ausmus and CFI Jim Clifford, all of MUFON of Georgia and ISUR, were returning to the Atlanta area from the MUFON Symposium in St. Louis. We were driving southbound on I-24 in a Chevy van, Sheets driving, Clifford front right, Ausmus in 1st back seat. While passing thru Kentucky and into Tennessee, Clifford had been pointing out an extraordinarily large number of jet contrails in the sky. The weather along this route was some thin haze and some thin almost transparent cirrostratus patches in some areas, with some cirrus, but mostly sunny with temperatures in the 90's, no appreciable wind noticed.
At 4:40 PM CDT, approaching the 97 mile marker between Nashville and Chattanooga, about 81 road miles NW of Chattanooga, Clifford pointed up and out his window saying something to the effect of "Look, there's a jet giving off a contrail or chemtrail".
Note: At that time the sky to our front, and front right and front left, was the aforementioned thin transparent partial haze, but it abruptly ended to our front and slightly upwards. From that upward point in front, on to the overhead point, and continuing behind us to right and left, was clear blue sky with bright sun. No clouds, no haze.
As Clifford remarked on the jet as described above, I glanced up and slightly to the right and saw a contrail through and above the haze, more or less parallel to the roadway (being deployed toward us), but it terminated at the edge of the thin haze. Quickly following this line out into the clear sky, I observed a large bright white jet of the 777 or 757 or similar variety, beginning to again emit more contrail or chemtrail. The aircraft was obvious and substantial and in clear blue sky with bright sunlight. There was no mistaking what it was. The outline of the white fuselage, wings and tail were PLAINLY visible against clear blue. (Mark Ausmus was unable to see the aircraft from his position in the rear seat, but immediately observed the trails in the sky upon dismounting the van).
At that point this writer braked hard (light traffic), and began to quickly pull over. Clifford, who was still watching, then stated that.... "it's gone, it just vanished". Within a few moments, we were all out and looking. The jet had indeed vanished. The sky was double checked using binoculars with negative results. We could still plainly see the contrail/chemtrail line through the haze, stopping at the edge, then a short way out into the clear sky the contrail began again, then stopped. The course the jet had been flying was directly into the clear sky. If it had banked/turned or climbed or dove, we should still have been able to see it for several minutes. There were NO other clouds or haze for it to fly into on it's course, which was estimated at being about NWN. This writer estimated the altitude at about 15,000 feet, but it could have been higher.
Note: The contrail/chemtrail above the haze, stopping at the edge, then continuing for a brief distance in the clear sky, was similar to this;
then the jet vanished, leaving only this;
As stated, this all occurred in a very short period of time, from first alert, to the jet vanishing, to our static observation of the sky. We found it difficult to believe that an aircraft that large and obvious could disappear in that manner. It should be noted that all three of us have long experience as observers, myself from 25 years of law enforcement and SWAT type operations, Mark Ausmus from years of organizing and executing MANY skywatches and UFO surveillance operations, but CFI Jim Clifford is probably the most formally trained as an observer for this type of activity. Jim retired after 23 years of naval service with a Top Secret security clearance in communications. He also has experience in the P-3 Orion subhunter aircraft, and was once responsible for visually spotting a Russian submarine that had gotten into one of our Navy's areas of patrol responsibility; the sub had been overlooked by other observers and methods, but Jim spotted it during patrol sweeps by the P-3. He is an alert, objective and close observer.
Jim later went on to comment that he had noticed a lot of these events involved the contrail/chemtrails being deployed in or above cloud cover or haze and then terminating near clear sky, as if to conceal the activity. Jim, like the rest of us, thinks the public has a right to know the 'what' and the 'why' of this activity. How will the public go about getting to the truth of the matter? What will it take? While as a group, we at MUFONGA and ISUR are more interested in the greatest enigma of our time.....the UFO phenomena.....but this contrail/chemtrail dilemma is also right in our face.

SWEDEN CHEMTRAILS AND WEIRD WEATHER REPORTED
ORUSTISLAND ISLAND -- Chemtrails have been seen frequently on off the west coast of Sweden. Ulla-Britt M., a resident of Hensa, a town on Orust, reported, "In November 1998, I was standing on the balcony, third floor of the local government building where I work. I was having a cig (cigarette)with my coffee. Suddenly I heard a whining noise from above, and when I looked up, there were two airplanes racing at high speed, leaving a contrail behind. Suddenly the last (second) one came close to the first, and my heart nearly stopped. I was thinking a catastrophe would happen. Nothing happened, and I was surprised to see them linked, as if the two had become one." In recent weeks, Ulla-Britt added, she has seen them again "and they have a strange sound like whining, and this is how I know they are there even if I cannot see them. I am not afraid of them any more but I amreally worried about what they are spraying the sky with." "Often, specifically now in the summer time, I have problems with running eyes and nose, some coughing and tintinnitis and a sick feeling from the stomach. There is no clear sky any more. The chemtrails stay in the sky, and they move like a coverlet across the sky." On Thursday, June 20, 2000, unusually heavy rains blanketed south-central Sweden. Heavy rains flooded the Ljungan River near Aage, which overflowed its banks and swept away several houses. "Heavy rains have flooded roads and railways, isolating communities and shutting down all northbound train traffic from Stockholm." (See USA Today for July 20,2000, "Rains engulf central Sweden," page 5A)

AUSTRALIA CHEMTRAILS APPEAR
QUEENSLAND COAST -- Chemtrails were observed over the Gold Coast on July 6, 2000, during a local festival. The Australian UFO Research Network reports low-flying airplanes sprayed chemtrails on the beaches at Brunswick Heads, a port city about 200 kilometers south of Brisbane. Nearly two weeks later, on July 19, 2000, "starting at 7:00 AM several large aircraft flying at low altitude crisscrossed the sky in all directions spraying chemtrails. Within a few minutes, the famous clear blue Australian sky turned cloudy and hazy. Diane Harrison reports, "For the first time in history here, it was almost impossible to see the beautiful mountains to the west." Byron Bay was the target of the spraying and "To our astonishment, the clouds did not disperse, and they were very long, all the way down Australia's Gold Coast." People stopped on the side of the road and got out of their cars to watch the incredible spectacle. I know of a few people who took photographs. The event resembled a war, as airplanes 'attacked' Byron Bay from all directions. The 'contrails' were 'turned' on just before Byron Bay and 'turned off' after the planes passed over us." The sky "resembled a load of match sticks that was dumped on the floor. These 'contrails' did not behave as ordinary contrails. While one side of these contrails remained straight, the other side dispersed, resembling a comb or a feather."
