BUT FIRST HERE ARE 2 IMPORTANT ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE RIGHT AWAY TO HELP ALLEVIATE 2 MAJOR PROBLEMS:
From: "C'esca Lawrence" <Snowcat711@mediaone.net>
Subject: Fw: Vote against genetic engineering!
Date: Thu, 2 Mar 2000
Here is your chance to vote against Genetically Engineered food in Time
Magazine's website poll... There is compelling evidence that Genetically
Engineered plants and animals contribute to the ever growing cancer rate in
this country. Please take a moment and cast your vote _against_ this
unacceptable practice. Don't forget -- this is TIME Magazine -- They are going to report
this to all Americans that still don't have an opinion about Genetically
Engineered food (i.e., know nothing about it).
Please check in and vote "VERY CONCERNED" and pass this site along.
Remember to click "TALLY IT" or your vote will not be counted.
AND THIS SECOND ONE...

In the midst of so many activities and articles going out in an attempt to
penetrate our human consciousness about the sonar issue and nudging our souls
to respond this time, rather than stand aside as we watch yet another
holocaust....I want to thank you for being such a central key in
disseminating the articles I have written.
With my thanks and aloha,
AND MY RESPONSE WAS:
I want to thank you very warmly for expressing this, not because what you wrote flatters me but because in so doing you recognize in me what is in you, and that is the divine impulse to act according to our conscience whatever the cost in time, efforts and money. Our cause is not to bring about the recognition of the need to save some marine life from the blind destructive actions of some military agency. It is to foster the recognition of the Oneness of All That Lives as being part of the same continuum of Life gracing this world and the entire Universe with its buoyant, infinite creative power that transforms inanimate matter into wondrous almost miraculous expressions of the unfathomable beauty and perfection that we so often fail to see in other "lesser" life forms - from our narrow anthropomorphic viewpoint - and in each other, including the very military personel and scientists doing those insane things.
We are all in this together and I know in my heart that we will succeed in awakening in every other human being the sense of Oneness and profound reverence for all Life that is so essential to the continued existence and blooming of Life on Earth. It is only a matter of time... and love.
So take heart and let's all keep up the sacred service we came here to perform

Thank you so much.
I had an inspiring evening today learning about the movement

Georgia, where government sanctioned killers are being trained.
The speakers stressed the fact that this was just a small

Hi Jean....I do appreciate the work you are doing is vitally important!!! I
wrote to you a couple of months ago, asking for help with spreading the word
about the "ROUNDUP" PROBLEM HERE ON THE ISLAND OF HAWAII.... i HAVE LISTENED
TO WHAT YOU SAID, AND am seriously planning a way to inform the public by
creating flyers and printed information and starting a door to door campaign
to inform my neighbors of the information....I do appreciate the information
you are circulating for it helps me to access these things...which I have
not been familiar since the past 30 years I have not been able to use any of
these products anyway because of my sensitivity to petrochemical products
anyway...but hearing of babies and young children being affected with
symptoms that I have had since a teenager...everyone attributes my weakness
in my physical body.not diagnosable...but now more and more I am noticing
the symptoms in young people and doctors are saying that this diagnosis is
one in a million and a rare disease...it is a break down of the pituitary
gland, and break down of the immune system...THIS STATEMENT IS A
'COP-OUT'.....WHEN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION ADMITS WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON ,
THEN THEY WILL HAVE TO TAKE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF RECOGNIZING HOW FDA, AND
ALL THESE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES WHO SUPPORTS THEIR PROFESSION, WHO ARE
I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IF IT WEREN'T FOR YOU, I WOULD NOT HAVE GOTTEN AS
MUCH RESOURCES TO WHAT I NEED TO BATTLE THIS...AND I WILL...40 YEARS AGO, I
STARTED THE NO SMOKING CAMPAIGN WHEN EVERYONE THOUGHT I WAS CRAZY.
AT THAT TIME, PEOPLE DID NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF ALLERGY...
ALL IT TAKES IS ONE PERSON AT A TIME PLANTING SEEDS OF KNOWLEDGE, AND
CREATING A CRITICAL MASS....ALL IT TAKES IS ONLY 7.50 PERCENT OF THE WORLD'S

PEOPLE, AND EACH PERSON WORKED ONLY 5 PEOPLE IT CONTINUED TILL I HAD 300
PEOPLE ON THE LIST TO CARRY OUT THE INTENTION..THEN WE ACCOMPLISHED GETTING
THOUSANDS TO ATTEND THE FUNCTION....IT WAS "FULL HOUSE". WHY I AM SHARING

Subject: Re: Food Safety Files 7: More aspartame horror stories
I share the same sentiment. Did you know Duke University here in North
Carolina has a clinic devoted to what is called the "Rice Diet"? Not
only do folks come off their blood pressure medications, they used this
clinic back in the 30's to treat kidney malfunction before dialysis was
available, and for heart patients before much of the fancier (read
expensive pharmaceuticals) treatments were available. The diet cures
most things, including adult diabetes. It's a low sodium, low fat,
basically vegetarian diet. Low sodium means 500 to 1,000 mg per day as
opposed to the 2000 mg. which is considered low sodium. It also busts
the myth on protein, meaning the average person needs 20-30 grams per
day which can be gotten entirely with rice. Really it's just an
intelligent portrayal of the 3rd world diets. No processed foods, just
rice, beans, grains, vegetables and fruit. All unprocessed of course.
This clinic has been in existence for 58 years!
NOW HERE IS THE INTRODUCTORY COMMENT MY GOOD FRIEND ILYES WROTE ALONG WITH HER NETWORKING OF THE

Subject: UK attempts to intercept private email communication - Peaceful protest is a "serious crime"
Greetings to all!
The following is rather long, but its implications are CRITICAL to our
understanding -- and acting upon -- if we're to globally retain our
Freedom of Speech rights, whether on OR OFF the Internet. The focused
pressure generated by tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, of
people united behind a commonly-held Intent is the ONLY thing (followed,
perhaps, as a close second by massive class-action lawsuits) that
encourages our governments to sit up, take notice, and modify either
their plans, or the _status quo_. The voice of ThePeople has been heard
re: cigarettes and GMO-'food'; currently, the 'cigarette-lawyer' is
taking on the HMOs ('health management' organizations -- NOT!). Ahead
of us lies a potential massive lawsuit against the oil and auto
transnationals regarding their unmitigated generation and release of
hydrocarbons despite the BEYOND-CRITICAL global warming that continues
its headlong acceleration and degradation of ALL our planet's life
support systems ...
The snowball-rolling-downhill effect by wch the Internet empowers those
'at the bottom of the pyramid' is the BEST (if not 'only') tool we have
to effect the kinds of changes WE MUST see implemented NOW if our
species is to survive. When 'the world' sings in harmony, governments
respond! If we lose our privacy on The'Net (Echelon notwithstanding),
it's because we've handcuffed and fettered OURSELVES, and taped OUR OWN mouths.

Here are a couple URLs first:
http://www.spotlight.org/01_07_00/Chemicals/chemicals.html (did not check this one but here is an excerpt that was provided with the URL: "Certain illnesses including pneumonia tracked the spraying effort across America but the American people have not been told about the project," the researcher said. "In fact, government agencies have deliberately lied to the citizens again and again.")
Another Dark Chemtrail Hypothesis -- This is from Icke's E-mag: http://www.50megs.com/davidicke/icke/magazine/vol10/chem/chemtrailinsider.html
MY COMMENT: I read this one above circulated over the Internet a couple of weeks ago. Here was my comment on it to someone: "When I first saw this a couple weeks ago, I quickly decided it is yet another hoax and a ludicrous one at that -- creating a giant nature park and playground with America - how can anyone buy into such a stupid rationale? not to mention the rest of it. If it was endorsed by William Thomas, then I would reconsider, but I don't think he would support this at all.
Now this leaves open the mystery about why exactly they are spraying this cocktail of pathogens."
Also this other older article from: http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Realm/9485/popcontrol.html
Population Control - Aerial Spraying of Anthrax (by Karin Pekarcik is a free-lance writer living in Anaheim, CA. Her e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org) which goes pretty much along the same lines as David Icke's theory of annihilation ("culling" as they say) of most of the world population to protect what remains of the Earth's ecosystems for the sole benefit of the wealthiest elite now running the world. Check them anyway and make up your own mind on this...
THIS THEORY BELOW SOUND MORE PLAUSIBLE TO ME:
Chemtrails - BioWarfare Chemicals Said Being Tested On Americans The strange-looking streaks in the sky aren't your imagination. They are anti-bacteriological warfare chemicals being tested by the federal government. And the public has been kept in the dark.
Exclusive To The SPOTLIGHT
By Mike Blair
The Pentagon, and possibly other federal government entities, is testing anti-biological warfare agents, which produce the mysterious "chemtrails" that are appearing on an irregular basis in the skies over many American cities, towns and rural areas, according to a scientific researcher in an exclusive interview with The SPOTLIGHT.
An Air Force veteran, who while on active duty was attached to the nation's top secret National Security Agency (NSA), presents compelling evidence that the Pentagon is using regular Air Force and Air Force National Guard aircraft to release anti-bacteriological warfare chemicals into the skies.
The chemtrails were detected some two years ago over central Virginia. They were initially reported nationally by The SPOTLIGHT.
Since The SPOTLIGHT's original report, thousands of people across the country have contacted this newspaper about the tell-tale streaks in the sky. Some casually look at the "contrails," thinking they are from a plane's engine exhausts condensing water vapor into a visible cloud.
UNLIKE TRUE CONTRAILS
If you closely watched the trails over an extended period of time, you can tell they are unlike regular aircraft contrails. The chemtrails do not rapidly disperse. Instead they gradually spread out in a lacy pattern, ultimately forming what appear to be banks of clouds.
Even after fanning out, the chemtrails can be readily spotted because the banks of clouds are in straight lines across the sky as they mesh together. Sometimes they turn an otherwise sunny day into one that is overcast.
The former researcher told The SPOTLIGHT that he believes he has tracked the chemical spraying to the "unconventional pathogen countermeasures program" of the top secret Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The agency has funded laboratory studies and tests conducted by scientists at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
DARPA Director Lawrence H. Dubois claims the agency is "not doing any large-scale or outdoor testing" and he knows of "no evidence that [the chemical substance] is being sprayed from aircraft by any agency of the federal government." However, The SPOTLIGHT's source said he is convinced that DARPA is deeply involved in the massive spraying.
"After talking to friends in Congress, government and medicine, I have been referred to the University of Michigan and Dr. James Baker Jr., his nanotechnology oil-water liquid-the same liquid developed by Dr. Craig Wright, a scientist at Novavax Inc. in Columbia, Md.," the researcher said. "I speak for thousands of American citizens who are being sprayed by military aircraft and haven't a clue why the government is spraying and lying to them. They are very concerned in light of the present administration."
The researcher said the government is planning for a biological attack against the United States. Government officials have referred to such an attack as "not if, but when."
A number of Third World countries hostile to the United States as well as Russia and Red China are involved in massive chemical and biological warfare development programs.
The government and its scientists claim that the chemicals being tested are harmless to humans. The researcher disagrees.
"Certain illnesses including pneumonia tracked the spraying effort across America but the American people have not been told about the project," the researcher said. "In fact, government agencies have deliberately lied to the citizens again and again.
"These aircraft trails appear below 10,000 feet and do not act like ice crystals. Spray from aircraft are observed cutting on and off as you would throw a switch on the aircraft control panel. Grid patterns are painted in the sky with 'X' and circles are also painted."
According to the researcher, the oil in the substance being sprayed is responsible for "rainbow-like" colorations that appear frequently during the formation of the chemtrails. The "X" found in an area being sprayed probably marks the areas for satellite study of the dispersal patterns.
Government officials are concerned about a biological attack against the United States involving the use of the deadly disease anthrax, which several countries, including Iraq and North Korea, are developing as a biological weapon.
Government officials also are concerned about the development of a pandemic outbreak of a deadly flu, similar to the so-called Spanish flu that killed tens of millions worldwide in 1918.
Recent outbreaks of a new flu strain in Hong Kong, which appears to be transmitted by chickens, has given rise to fears about a pandemic outbreak developing and quickly sweeping across the globe.
As it turns out, the chemical substance is being tested at the University of Michigan under Baker's direction. Baker, a professor of internal medicine, serves as director of the Center for Biologic Nanotechnology at the university's medical school, which is effective at countering flu viruses and anthrax spores.
The substance, called BCTP, is a milky-white emulsion of tiny lipid drop lets suspended in solvent developed by Wright, chief research scientist at Novavax. Wright is also president of Novavax Biologics Division. Novavax is a bio pharmaceuticals company.
BCTP is made of water, soybean oil, Triton X 100 detergent and the solvent tri-n-butyl phosphate. BCTP envelops the viruses and spores, causing them to explode and thus destroying them upon contact.
The researcher told The SPOTLIGHT that he believes the Clinton administration is using BCTP as a countermeasure against anthrax, deadly influenza and other potential biological killers. If, for example, the government instituted a full-scale anthrax vaccination program, the public would panic, the researcher noted. This is particularly true in the wake of a mandatory anthrax vaccination program instituted by the military, he said. Many critics are convinced the military is using an unsafe vaccine.
"I believe the government is undertaking experiments with BCTP, a means of countering an anthrax or other biological attack without anyone being at war," the researcher said. "It is, I think, a case of 'what they don't know won't hurt them-it may help them.'
"But the point is, you don't experiment on the public without their knowledge and consent, or at least that is the way it's supposed to be," he added.

SCIENCE WITHOUT VIRTUE: THE HORRORS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
"Science without virtue is immoral science." -Plato
A society Starbuck-drunk on prosperity is easy prey for manipulation by the media, politicians and the financial interests that own them. We are lulled into a collective complacency where oil prices for our SUVs, skyrocketing stock prices and the latest digital wonders increasingly define public discourse. Millionaire athletes and billionaire entrepreneurs have become our so-called heroes. All the while, hidden from view by the corpocracy are growing perils that threaten our very survival as a species. Except when, on those rare occasions, an ordinary citizen steps forward, at great personal risk, to wake us up.
Dr. Andreas Toupadakis is one such individual. On February 16th of this year, he resigned his $91,000 a year classified position as a research chemist in the "Stockpile Stewardship" program at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Notwithstanding their self-serving, misleading misnomer as "Science in the National Interest," LLNL is in fact one of the largest nuclear weapon development labs in the world, located near San Francisco, California. Dr. Toupadakis quit his job based on a deep sense of personal morality and ethics. But he did not do so quietly.
On the contrary, he stated in detail his reasons for leaving in an open letter to Bruce Tarter, LLNL's Director. In addition, he has embarked on a media campaign to warn the world of the dangers he witnessed behind the closed doors of the facility, a world where he says, among several other claims, science is practiced with a reckless disregard for mankind. His warnings merit our urgent attention and immediate action.
To read his warning and get more info go at www.oasistv.com (It will be posted only for one week)
NOW HERE IS SOMETHING RECEIVED FROM ONE OF THE 1600+ PEOPLE ON THIS EARTH RAINBOW NETWORK LIST WHICH I FEEL DESERVES YOUR ATTENTION AND A WIDE DISTRIBUTION -- IF YOU FEEL INCLINED TO HELP NETWORK THIS...
Date: Wed, 1 Mar 2000
Subject: Help raise awareness of important international effort
Please Read: A BRIEF REQUEST from Common Bond Institute
I am asking if you would take a moment to assist in the
success of an important international effort toward peace and reconciliation
in the world by raising awareness of it among your network and friends. A
brief notice on the 8th ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CONFLICT RESOLUTION
is being sent to you in a separate e-mail to be forwarded on to your network
of activists and healers. The notice is already prepared and can be either
cut and pasted into a message addressed to your list, or simply forwarded on
to those on it.
I want to stress that your taking just a few moments now to pass this message
along and encourage others to do the same will make a truly invaluable
contribution to this effort, and earn the gratitude of hundreds of
participants who travel each year at great expense, effort, and sometimes
risk to be part of this unique learning community.
A remarkable thing about the ICR Conference is that knowledge of it is spread
across the world solely through the courtesy of those who value and endorse
it's purpose. As a result individuals representing all walks of life are
drawn to it each year. Through our commitment to balance the economic burden
of participating by using registration fees to offer subsidies for all
participants from economically depressed countries, we are able to bring
together a truly representative global community that lives and learns
together for 6 days and nights transcending artificial barriers.
Our sponsoring organizations are non-profit NGOs that utilize primarily
volunteer staff. In addition, all presenters pay their own way and offer
their presentations as contributions to the effort.
If you are not already aware of the Annual ICR Conference I would invite you
to visit our web site. Here you can gain a full knowledge of the vision and
mission of this annual multicultural, grassroots event that is open to all
and has involved thousands of people from all across the globe in sharing
practical skills for conflict transformation. It has birthed many dynamic
projects and cooperations that are making a concrete difference in the world,
earned the support of the US and Russian presidents, and is strongly endorsed
by a growing list of now over 65 professional organizations and universities
internationally. It is listed in numerous international directories and
included as part of the Hague Appeal for Peace Civil Society Calendar: 2000
International Year for the Culture of Peace.
We invite you to be part of this effort in endorsing non-violence in the
world and sharing methods to achieve it, and we hope you too will consider
joining us in St. Petersburg this May.
