When people think of cyberbullying, they tend to think of the more well-known social networks like Facebook, Twitter and MSN, but the truth is that cyberbullying can happen anywhere, even on sites that were made with e intentions, such as Yahoo! Answers.
Around 50% of all Yahoo! Answers users are either repeat trolls or repeat abusers. Comments such as "grow the f*** up" and insults like "spoiled brat", "a**hole" and "kid" (used to describe a teenager).
I, myself, have been attacked, mocked and referred to on there by many others and wish to put a stop to this sort of offensive behaviour on this otherwise brilliant site.
Family court judge names William Vernon as the killer of a 19 month old baby — five years after he was cleared by a jury, but due to our fantastic laws in this country Vernon CANNOT be re-tried for the murder of baby Alanis. New laws now allow a second prosecution if new evidence is revealed — but they came in after his trial - furthermore, there is no "new evidence" in this case
MONSTER William Vernon has been dramatically named as the killer of a baby — 5 years after a jury acquitted him.
Vernon, 24, originally from Cardigan Street, Chaddesden had walked free after he was cleared of stamping 19-month-old Alanis Holland to death.
But a family court judge chose to rule openly “in the interests of justice” that he DID cause her death, and branded him a danger to children.
Worried social services staff brought the case to protect the two children of his new lover.
Judge James Orrell heard Vernon had savagely beaten one of the youngsters, a six-year-old known only as Child A, ten times with a metal spatula.
Judge Orrell said: “This incident was vicious and not simple chastisement.” He said it was hard to imagine any child could be safe with Vernon. The judgment finally vindicated Alanis’s innocent mum Joanne, who Vernon had cruelly accused in court of being the killer.
She said: “I’ve been all the way to hell and back. Now, at last, everyone finally knows the whole truth. When I went to see Alanis at the mortuary I made a promise to her that I’d get justice for her.
“I’ll never forget the foreman delivering the not guilty verdict at Vernon’s murder trial. I just collapsed in tears. “In other people’s eyes the jury incriminated me. I was called a murderer in the street.
“In an ideal world he’d be behind bars. At the very least he should be tagged.” Joanne had left toddler Alanis in jobless Vernon’s care at the home they shared in Overseal, Derbyshire, in February 2000.
When she returned Joanne found her child struggling for breath. The jury at Leicester Crown Court heard a recording of her sobbing and pleading for help during a 999 call.
Alanis was lying limp in her arms, her life ebbing away, as distraught Joanne pleaded: “Please come back to me.” The tot had a ruptured liver — more usually seen after a child has been run over by a car.
The prosecution claimed that Vernon was the only person who could have inflicted the “dreadful” damage. But the jury cleared him of murder AND a lesser charge of manslaughter after he went into the witness box to accuse Joanne.
She was never charged and yesterday Judge Orrell said it was “inherently unlikely” that she would have harmed her daughter.
He said: “Vernon said Joanne inflicted the injuries and punched Alanis. This suggestion is insidious and fanciful. “Joanne is a mother who has no problems controlling her temper. Vernon is a man with a violent temper. What he did to Child A shows the extent he will go to to punish children.”
The judge then declared in Derby Family Court: “William Vernon struck Alanis with such force that he ruptured her liver and caused her death. Vernon presents a serious and continuous risk to young children.”
Details of any order made by a judge in the Family Division are not made public.
Vernon CANNOT be re-tried for the murder of Alanis. New laws now allow a second prosecution if new evidence is revealed — but they came in after his trial
WeCOPE is an acronym for We Change Our Personal Experiences. This is a social network movement that helps people to cope with their own personal problems. Maybe you/they are going through depression, anxiety, stress, divorce, or suicidal issues, etc. This is the way to go.
This is a place to come to whenever you are feeling down. A place to come if you want to share a word or two of encouragement.
I’ve created this site, so that people know that they are not alone. We need to show them that there is ALWAYS someone to talk too. There is always a shoulder to cry on. There will always be a helping hand.
Let’s come together as one to COPE: Change Our Personal Experiences!
Because we can COPE!
The Uganda Argus, the first newspaper in Uganda, was founded in 1955 as a British colonial government publication. The 1962 Dr. Milton Obote kept the name until 1971 when Idi Amin Dada assumed power through a coup d'état and renamed it Voice of Uganda.
The 1979 Milton Obote II government renamed it Uganda Times. 1986 the National Resistance Movement (NRM) of Yoweri Museveni changed it to The New Vision which has been published since then. The Daily Monitor, The Red Pepper, The Observer, The Sunrise, The Independent, The Kampala Sun, Bukedde, Kamunye etc all came after 1986. By May 2012 Uganda had 250 licenced radios and 44 televisions.
In the last few years, however, torture of journalists and general intimidation of media practitioners has made hell the working environment of a journalist.
In 2012 freelance photographer Edward Echwalu was beaten by police as he covered the arrest of Dr. Kizza Besigye. Other journalist victims in the Besigye saga included Isaac Kasamani (Daily Monitor), William Ntege (WBS) and Nicholas Mwesigye (Red Pepper). Several others have bean tortured by the Police in separate incidents – and early this year journalist Musaazi Namiti was manhandled for taking a photograph of a policemen on duty. He and his companions missed their flight and had to part with more money to travel after their release from Police cells.
Now Police have besieged premises of Daily Monitor and Red Pepper apparently for publishing stories on Gen. David Sejusa who is reportedly out of the country. Dembe FM and KFM, both managed by Nation Media Group, have been switched off air. Is Gen. Sejusa a rebel? How do journalists now know what to cover and not to cover?
It should be mandated that any man or woman within the military, i.e. Army, Marines, Navy, or Air Force, can not abuse his or her spouse nor abandon his or her spouse for someone else.
Accused individuals not be protected within the unit that the accused man or woman is assigned to.
Limitations Act 1969 18A Personal injury
An action on a cause of action to which this section applies is not maintainable if brought after the expiration of a limitation period of 3 years running from the date on which the cause of action first accrues to the plaintiff or to a person through whom the plaintiff claims.
Childhood sexual abuse
For victims of childhood sexual abuse their life is irrevocably changed forever, for some; they will live their entire lives without disclosing to anyone, others will find the strength and courage to disclose to someone at some point in their lives.
Statistics and Figures
It is commonly accepted that:
•1 in 6 boys is sexually abused before the age of 18.
•1 in 4 girls is sexually abused before the age of 18.
•This is equivalent to 332,516 Queensland men having experienced child sexual abuse.
•Over 30% of confirmed reports of child sexual abuse involve male victims.
•Between 70-90% of men who have experienced child sexual abuse haven’t told anyone!
•In on study of 40 boys who experienced child sexual abuse and attended an adolescent medical facility, none had ever told their primary care giver.
•Men are one and a half times less likely than women to report rape to police. This makes for an extremely small figure, given that only between 5–10% of women report rape to police.
•There appear to be some particularly powerful forces preventing adult men from telling. From their experience of men's groups, counsellors say that many men do not disclose until they are in their thirties and some never disclose.
Some personal prospective?
I was sexually abused as a child, the perpetrator was a scout leader, I never told anyone about it until I was 21 at which point I told my parents that I had been abused but no more details as I was unable to deal with it. At the age of 36 I realized that I needed to do something about it because it was destroying my life. I went to the police and for the first time ever I told the detective in great detail what had happened to me. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.
During the course of the investigation it was revealed that the scout association not only knew who this person was and what he had done but failed to report it to the authorities. One report from the scouts advised that the boys were told to “remember their scout’s code of honour and never talk about it again”. As I told my parents at age 21 I was unable to legally hold the scouts accountable becuase I disclosed at 21. The following links shows that this organisation has done this more than once.
What do we want?
We request that the limitations act 1969 section 18a be amended to allow for victims of childhood sexual abuse the time required reporting the crime and seeking compensation from the organisations’ that cover up or hide perpetrators to protect their organisations’ name.
Last year in Manchester a girl got kicked to death by a group of boys just because she different. I live in Cardiff, Wales and I see this happening everywhere and in school.
Schools are not doing anything about it and outside of school they get treated even worse.
While there is no legal definition for a puppy mill, it is best defined as a large-scale commercial dog breeding operation that places profit over the well-being of its dogs—who are often severely neglected—and acts without regard to responsible breeding practices.
There is estimated to be about 15,000 puppy mills nationwide, with hundreds of dogs that are forced to reproduce until they are unable to do so anymore. At this point, they either die from sickness, are killed, or abandoned.
The conditions in which these dogs live is unsanitary and detrimental to their well-being, with a wide variety of effects, including physical, emotional, and social problems. Due to lack of veterinary care, diseases and genetic disorders/deformities go on unnoticed, and are passed on from litter to litter.Almost all pet store animals come from puppy mills. At time of purchase, consumers are given incorrect lineage about the dog’s health, breed, and breeder. Every year, retail pet stores across America sell 500,000 dogs, while 5 to 7 million dogs enter shelters.
House bill no. 5027 targets the issue of puppy mills, aiming to ban the sale of both dogs and cats from pet stores in Connecticut that are obtained from these substandard animal mills.
The poor baby calfs are let out of the stall and literally run for their life because if they get caught they choke get wrapped up and are either seriously injured or dead.
Also the bucking broncos buck because a freaking jerk ties a tight rope on his ball sack and the horse is hurt and bucks.
Effective April 1, 2012 the Nova Scotia SPCA will suspend cruelty investigations province-wide. The society will no longer be responding to allegations of abuse, neglect or cruelty. This is due to inadequate sustainable funding.
As animal lovers it is our duty to ensure a safe haven for any animal that is wrongfully treated.
Outbackjacks Horse Rescue Petition.
After recent situations with regard to horses requiring rescue, in our opinion things need to change. Although we help as much as we can, we are still limited in what we can do as a small nonprofit horse rescue.
We receive on the average, a call a day with people asking for help. Most of the time we refer them to the RCMP and the BCSPCA. However, with the increase in these calls and abuse issues, we are going out on more calls than ever.
Outbackjacks believes in working for what we believe in. This is the reason for not seeing a donate button on our website. I started a horse rescue thrift store in the town of Princeton a few years back and one in Keremeos this year where we take unwanted items and sell them to support our cause. Times ,howeve, are changing and it’s time to make a bigger difference in the abuse in horses and other farm animals. We are having a meeting on the 25th with influential people and will be presenting this petition in hope to make the following changes.
Our hopes are to convince the provincial government that a people funded rescue for horses and farm animals in this region is well over due. Our request to them will not be for money but for more authority to be able to have the power to seize, if necessary. The team at Outbackjacks Horse Rescue is willing to take any other courses they deem necessary to accomplish this. This would make a time space smaller for the animals in need and allow a faster course of criminal action against the abusers of said animals.
By signing today, you are giving the rescues an opportunity that is far over due. Going to call after call and having to walk away from the animal in need because we cannot get a surrender is not tolerable anymore. Most of these animals are in need right at that moment and most calls come in long before help ever gets to them.
Please help us and sign today and become a part of the future. The future of a better way of life for horses and farm animals.
My husband, Lynn E. Carter and I have waited well over 2 years for a formal public apology and investigation we ask of you concerning U.S. Veterans Hospital Patient, and Patient Caregiver Abuse at the Veterans Health Care System of the Ozarks http://www.fayettevillear.va.gov/ U.S. Veterans Hospital, Fayetteville, Arkansas, June 15, 2011, John R. Henley M.D. and Mark A. Elderle M.D. Fayetteville Arkansas U.S. Veterans Hospital Administrator DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS Fayetteville Arkansas 72703-6995 http://www.fayettevillear.va.gov/
Why did my husband lay on a stretcher filled with feces and urine for 5 hours at a U.S. Veterans Hospital E.R. Fayetteville Arkansas on 6-15-2011?
To this date, I have received no formal apology or reply regarding this issue from the office of President of the United States, President Obama, Vice President Biden, U.S. Veterans Administration, VA Hospital Administrators, Congressman Steve Womack http://womack.house.gov/ Senator Mark Pryor http://www.pryor.senate.gov/public/ and Senator John Boozman http://www.boozman.senate.gov/public/ all have refused to open an investigation.

When we pulled up to the Emergency Room, I pulled into the drive-thru, and a male EMPLOYEE Came out and RUDELY told me I could NOT park here because it was the ambulance entrance that I would have to move my car down the hill and go in through the emergency room check in. I got back in the car, and pulled down the hill and went up the stairs and went to the check in desk. When I told the employee at the desk what was going on, he told me to pull my car BACK up the hill to where I just was because they would have to get my husband out of the car and into a wheelchair. I walked back to the car, backed up the hill to the door and they came out and put my husband in a wheel chair and wheeled him back to the check in desk. In a few minutes they came and got us and a nurse checked us in and asked us all kinds of questions about what was going on. After she was finished, they took my husband back to a room in the ER where we were for the next 5 hours. Five hours in which my husband lay in pain and his own URINE, FECES, and STENCH. When we were leaving the VA hospital, when I went to go out the door we came in, I was trying to push/force it open and the HIPPIE looking guy behind the desk (the same one who made me pull down the hill in the first place) RUDELY YELLED “Don’t do that, you’ll break the door”, “we have to push the button”, and I said to him “Then open the damn door!” So he pushed the button, the door opened, and I went and got the car and came back for my husband. I was the one who was mad, not my husband. My husband “Lynn E. Carter” was incapacitated DUE TO THE STROKE he was having and not at all mad or upset. He was barely conscious… We then drove to Fort Smith AR (because of MY decision, not his) to Sparks Regional Medical Center where my husband, Lynn E. Carter was hospitalized, and treated with human dignity. But because of the critical time lost (wasted) at the VA hospital – there was not much medically they could do by the time we got there except to make sure he was stable. This was time lost in a possible life/death situation. We are honest law abiding Christian, United States citizens. We Vote, we pay our taxes on time every year and we also contribute to charities. How can our country allow this to happen? June 15, 2011 was a night of PURE LIVING HELL FOR US. My husband still suffers mental anguish due to the events of June 15, 2011 at the Veterans Hospital ER, Fayetteville Arkansas.
You send letters asking our support, donations and ask for our vote, yet you ignore us in our times of need. After over one year of waiting for an investigation into the U.S. Veterans Hospital abuse of June 15, 2011 Congressman Steve Womack http://womack.house.gov/ and Senator Mark Pryor http://www.pryor.senate.gov/public/ Senator John Boozman http://www.boozman.senate.gov/public/ still have not acknowledged this issue. What about the future of fellow U.S. Veterans? Pray for fellow U.S. Veterans and U.S. Veterans Hospital cases which go unreported.
You may be shocked to discover that the American Humane Association's famous "No animals were harmed in the making of this movie" disclaimer does not protect film animals at all times; it only applies to actual making of the movie, not the training nor the animals' lives afterwards.
Animals have been beaten, had their skin and flesh torn, been neglected and confined to tiny tanks and cages, as well as hideous problems, due to this deadly loophole.
The animal Market in Sharjah sells all sorts of animals including domestic pets and wild life which is illegal.
After visiting the Market last week for a documentary I am making on dog abuse, I realised that all these animals live in dreadful conditions and probably wouldn't make it past the week!
Together we need to end abuse!
In Trinidad and Tobago, the abuse of fireworks on special occasions such as Divali and New Years Day is becoming more and more of a menace.
Impromptu surveying of citizens both over the internet and face to face show that the ill effects of abuse of not just illegal fireworks such as "scratchbombs" but also legally available fireworks over an extended period of hours not just affects human beings negatively, but also causes significant ill effects to animals.
Listed among the complaints given by citizens are: increased anxiety attacks/ ill effects to those suffering from nervous disorders, increased number of accidental and on occasion, even intentional burns caused by the setting off of fireworks in close contact to human beings and animals. increased damage to homes and other places of abodes caused by setting off of fireworks in close proximity to such establishments, death of animals due to heart attacks caused by extensive fright due to the loud noise of activated fireworks.
These complaints were given on a widescale and were not limited to any one geographical area.
As a longtime fan of the Pokemon series I find it appalling to discover that PETA has created a parody that contradicts the true meaning of the Pokemon series.
Pedophiles are not getting harsh enough sentences. They are given slaps on the wrist and are often free to re-offend soon after conviction. Here`s just 2 examples of many:
-David James Lebanc. He was one of the 2 men involved in the confinement and sexual assault of a 16 yr old boy for two weeks in Halifax. He was already facing pending charges from 2010 for sexual assault, touching a person under age 16, and making child pornography with a 2yr old and a 5yr old! Leblanc was released in 2010 so long as he didn`t go near children. He failed to comply in 2011, and served only 18 days in prison! This assault on the 16yr old boy was 100% preventable. Our judicial system failed that boy.
-Christopher Paul Neil. He served a mere 5 yrs. in a Thai prison for posting hundreds of pictures of him assaulting more than one child. He was arrested upon his return to Canada for being a threat to all children, yet was released a few days later so long as he promises not to go near children. Sound familiar?
As per recent news articles, Harper's C-10 crime bill gives harsher sentences to pot growers than to pedophiles. Something is wrong with that.
Why are these monsters allowed to get away with this? Our system needs some reform. As long as the penalties remain as slack as they are, this is going to keep happening.
On June 26 2011, the Bombay High Court suggested that Molestation should be made a non bailable offence.
Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice Ranjana Desai orally directed the state government to take action to make the offence (molestation) non-bailable. “As this offence is at present a bailable one, the police tend to take it lightly and don’t take prompt action in such cases. This is what seems to have happened in this case as well. If it is made a non-bailable offence, both the police and anti-social elements will take it seriously,” Chief Justice Shah said. (FROM TIMES OF INDIA)
We, the citizens of India, have decided that enough is enough and we have to take some action. Rich offenders should not be able to escape with their crime due to their luxuriously surplus bank accounts. Hence, we present this petition.
Shark populations are devastated by overexploitation, including targeted fishing, bycatch and finning.
Each year, tens of millions of sharks are killed by Earth’s most dangerous predators - humans. Too many of them fall victim to the cruel and wasteful practice of shark finning - the act of removing shark fins and discarding the often still alive shark overboard. As Eastern demand for fins remains strong, markets for shark meat are growing, helping to push shark species to the brink.
According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) analyses, all shark species proposed at the meeting met the criteria for listing under CITES Appendix II. Such listing requires that trade is controlled in order to avoid use that threatens the species’ survival. Despite the depletion ofsharks worldwide, restrictions on international trade are in place for only three shark species - whale shark, great white shark and basking shark.
Join thousands of AWARE divers and shark advocates who are serious about shark protection. Sign the petition and urge your friends and colleagues to do the same.
Together, we’re gaining the attention of policymakers worldwide. We’re closing loopholes in existing global shark management policies and insisting on full protections for Endangered and Critically Endangered sharks
50. Save the Sharks
Dear President Chinchilla,
We the attached signatories would like to congratulate you for the proactive stance your administration has taken with respect to marine conservation issues. The recent creation of the Cocos Island Marine Seamount Managed Area will support sustainable fishing initiatives among this country’s national fishers. In addition, closing the private docks to the international shark finning fleet was without a doubt a major accomplishment.
However, the foreign fleet continues to side-step the authorities’ controls by landing fins in Nicaragua, loading them into Costa Rican trucks, and importing them back into this country via Peñas Blancas for their eventual re-exportation.
In order to end the shark finning fleet’s egregious practices – ones that overshadow the marine conservation accomplishments of your government – it’s necessary to prohibit shark fin imports.
This action would have no impact on the national fishing industry or on any other industry that respects our laws.
WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, ARE CONCERNED CITIZENS WHO URGE OUR LEADERS TO ACT NOW TO IMPLEMENT CITY ORDINANCES REGARDING ABUSE AND NEGLECT OF ALL ANIMALS WITHIN CITY LIMITS.
THE CITY OF GRACE ORDINANCES CURRENTLY DO NOT ADDRESS ANY NEGLECT OR ABUSE OF ANIMALS AND IS VERY VAGUE. IDAHO STATE LEGISLATION STATUTE TITLE 25, CLEARLY STATES THE DEFINITION OF CRUELTY AND NEGLECT TO ANIMALS.
WE BELIEVE THE CITY OF GRACE SHOULD ABIDE BY IDAHO STATUTE AND ENFORCE ANY VIOLATIONS COMMITTED WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS REGARDING NEGLIGENCE AND CRUELTY.
Sharon R. Wells is a survivor of child sexual abuse. At age 14 she could no longer suppress the traumatic secrets of being abused. She felt alone, abandoned, damaged, guilty and responsible. The guilt and shame impacted her life in a very negative way. The deep embedded scars of abuse carried over into her adult life, causing much pain and suffering. Had resources been available for teens during that time, there is a great chance that she may not have experienced such life-long suffering. Sharon's story is just one of many who continue to suffer in silence because of sexual abuse.
There is an estimate of 60 million sexual abuse survivors that live amongst us in the United States of America. Because sexual abuse leaves victims feeling ashamed and guilty, most victims never tell. The secret torments them and causes life long suffering. Research has shown that the population of teenage abuse victims have been known to take their own lives, engage in drug and alcohol abuse, experience depression, rage, post-traumatic stress disorder amongst many others. If the trauma is not treated, some victims are doomed to repeat the cycle of sexual abuse.
The only way that we can save our future generations is by educating and empowering them to speak up and out. We must provide resources and support that will encourage them to break their silence and seek help and be aware of their surroundings.
It's been going on for centuries in the mountain range villages of Bulgaria. Clear evidence of the unsurpassed, undying evil genius of the Bulgarian Homo Rapiens.
Instead of placing scarecrows, poor, defenseless dogs are regularly tied up by the villagers with a short, rusty chain to a post in the wilderness, near someone's ranch, to scare away predators. The chain leaves for little or no movement on the muddy ground.
Soiled in their urine and feces, frustrated, left without food or water for days in the scorching 40 C heat, exposed to predators, unable to fight or run, uncared for, unwanted, untreated and forgotten, they die in agony and terror from thirst, starvation, disease, or their wounds if attacked and mutilated by the raving beasts.
This kind of abuse is common and widespread. Despite the numerous tragic reports of dogs who have suffered and died in such despicable conditions, nothing has been done by the regulatory authorities or the police to amend the situation or punish those responsible.
This kind of animal neglect should never happen. But when it does, it must be exposed and stopped.

"Teen Dating Bill or Rights" from dosomething.org
The report on U.S. military policy by “Project for New American Century” states: "It is now commonly understood that information and other new technologies …are creating a dynamic that may threaten America's ability to exercise its dominant military power. Potential rivals, such as China are anxious to exploit those transformational technologies broadly, while adversaries like Iran, Iraq and North Korea are rushing to develop ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons …the effects of information and other advanced technologies promise to revolutionize the nature of conventional armed forces" (ref. 13, pg. 4 and 11). The military concept of information technologies is, however, kept hidden from the world general public.
In February 2000 the Russian daily Segodnya, in the article "Riders of Psychotronic Apocalypse" (1), informed that in 1996 Russian government's information agency FAPSI warned that the effect of "informational means of war" is comparable to "the effect of the use of weapon of mass destruction" and produced a report entitled "Information Weapon as a Threat to National Security of Russia". In reaction, the Russian State Duma and consequently , the Interparliamentary Assembly of the Union of Independent States addressed the United Nations, OBSE and the European Council with a proposal for an international convention banning the development and use of informational weapons. According to the same newspaper Segodnya in March 1998, the matter was discussed with U.N. secretary general Kofi Anan, and included on the agenda of the General Assembly of the U.N. Most probably the USA vetoed this proposal and in consequence, the ban of informational weapons was not discussed by the United Nations General Assembly.
In the Doctrine of Informational Security of the Russian Federation, signed by President Putin in September 2000, among the dangers threatening the informational security of the Russian Federation, there is “the threat to the constitutional rights and freedoms of people and citizens in the sphere of spiritual life and to individual, group and societal consciousness” by “illegal use of special means affecting individual, group and societal consciousness.” (16). Among “the main areas of international cooperation of the Russian Federation in the field of information security” , is listed “banning the development, proliferation and application of ‘information weapons’ ” (17).
In the article under discussion Segodnya described "mysterious information-psychological" means capable not only of harming human health, but also of blocking human free will at the subconscious level, impairing human beings’ ability of “political, cultural and other self-identification" and even “causing destruction of indivisible informational and spiritual space of the Russian Federation”. According to Russian scientist A. F. Okhatrin, those means are also capable to kill people (2). Underneath the article, Segodnya published a review of weapons affecting human psyche which it obtained from the Russian Department of Defense. Together with ultrasound and microwave weapons, there are also "psychotronic weapons" which, in addition to having the capability of "transfering information among people", are able to act on communication and electronic systems (1).
The Space Preservation Bill proposed by Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2001, names the following technologies enabling access to the human brain, human health impairment or the killing of people: "land-based, sea-based or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotronic, sonic, laser or other energies directed at individual persons or targeted populations for the purpose of information war, mood managment or mind control of such persons or populations" (4). "Psychotronic weapon" listed in the Dennis J. Kucinich's bill is described as a weapon using "torsion fields" radiation in the book "Psychotronic Weapon and the Security of Russia" (6) by Russian scientist Vladimir Tsygankov and Vladimir Lopatin (a politician, who worked on Committees on Security in Russian Federal Republic, State Duma of the Russian Federation and the Interparliamentary Assembly of the Union of Independent States). Among the possible sources of remote influence on human psyche those two authors list “generators of physical fields” of "known as well as unknown nature" (14). It is common knowledge that both KGB and CIA carried out a large-scale research of psychotronic phenomena in the 70’s of the past century. It is not out of question that their scientists succeded in discovering the physical basis of those phenomena. In the 80’s the research did not continue, but the number of people complaining that their nervous system is manipulated from outside started growing from the begining of this decade.
Among the known physical concepts non-local electron and photon connection can be used to explain telepathy (46). The ability of sound and light technologies to influence human psyche is exemplified by Psychowalkman industry. The existence of the electromagnetic mind control technology is confirmed in the STOA report on crowd control technologies (40), Conclusion of the Committee on Security of the Russian State Duma  and can be deduced as well from scientific and military literature.
Nerve impulses in the brain are carried by electrical signals triggered by changes in chemical balance. During the fifties and sixties of the past century, it was proved that human nervous system and behavior can be thoroughly controlled by electric signals imported to the brain by tiny electrodes (41). 100 stimulations of one point in the bull‘s brain made him 100 times bellow. When a man was asked to straighten his hand the bending of which was stimulated he replied “I think your electricity is stronger than my will.” By means of electrical stimulation of the brain the rhythm of breathing and heart beat [this was even stopped for several pulses] was affected as well as the function of the most of the viscera - like the secretion of the gall bladder. The stimulation of areas in the brain where feelings and emotions reside produced decisions. A passive, depressed woman tore up a piece of paper when her center of anger was stimulated: “I did not control myself. I had to get up and tear”, she commented. An aggressive woman, with the same area stimulated, got up and smashed against the wall the guitar she was playing until the moment of stimulation. The intensity of feelings could be controlled by turning the knob which reduced or increased the intensity of the electric current. When the pleasure area was stimulated women offered marriage to therapists. Stimulation of a particular area in a female monkey‘s brain ended her motherly care for a newborn baby. When the limbic system was stimulated the patients vigilance weakened, they lost the ability to think, they often began to undress or grope and when the stimulation stopped they could not remember what was happening. The signals had to be delivered in specific frequencies to produce repetitive action of neurons. Spanish scientist Jose Delgado became world known when he, with the use of this technology, made a bull attack him by pressing one button on the small black box and stopped the bull few feet away from him by pressing another button.
The idea that electric currents in the brain could be induced by electromagnetic energy is obviously subsequent step in this path of research. The information inside of the brain is processed digitally; in other words analog perceptions are “translated” and transferred by a number and frequency of nerve impulses, while the intensity of the feeling or perception usually corresponds to the intensity of electrical current. Walter J. Freeman, who had been for years measuring the brain activity in reaction to different stimuli by multitudes of microelectrodes, presented already in 1975 a hypothesis “that a novel external stimulus is broadly transmitted from the primary sensory cortex or thalamus to other parts of the cortex... transmission occurs at some characteristic frequency, and...reception occurs in ... sets tuned to that frequency” (37). In other words, when neurons cooperate in the processing of specific information they synchronize their activity and oscillate in the same frequency. In an experiment by Wolf Singer (20) the differences in brain activity in reaction to two different stimuli, presented to the tested subject at the same time, were represented by two different groups of neurons oscillating in different frequencies. In the modern scientific literature synchronization of frequencies of emitted nerve impulses in different parts of the brain as a principle of brain functioning is generally accepted (19). Electroencephalographers have no doubt that those synchronizations appear on the EEG recordings and are already able to “read” in those frequencies the single letters of a word perceived by the tested subject (21). Theoretically this means that the events in the brain can be produced “synthetically” from the outside when additional energy is pumped into the brain in specific frequencies corresponding to specific brain activities. John Marks, in his book on CIA mind control research, quotes one of the CIA research veterans recalling a colleague’s joke: “If you could find the natural radio frequency of a person‘s sphincter, you could make him run out of the room real fast” (22). Since most of the activity of human brain takes place in frequencies from 1 to 100 Hz and electromagnetic waves of this frequency are hundreds and even thousands of miles long, and, for that matter, could not target human brain, scientists started experimenting with pulsed microwaves. There are “window” microwave frequencies which penetrate deep enough into the brain tissue to produce activity of neurons there.
The interaction of electromagnetic radiation and chemicals in the brain was proved for example by the experiment where irradiation of rats’ heads by 20 and 40 mW/cm2 microwaves pulsed at 300, 600 and 1000 Hz woke the rats up in 5 minutes from narcosis (23). Electrical signals of neurons in the brain are mediated by chemicals called neurotransmitters. At a conference on “Emerging Electromagnetic Medicine” in 1989 Capt. Paul Tyler, director of the U.S. Navy Electromagnetic Radiation Project between 1970 and 1977, quoted in his lecture the research of Dr. Merrit who measured the decrease of norepinephrine, serotonine and dopamine when a field of 80 mW/cm2 was applied (24). All those hormones act as neurotransmitters into the cortex. Dopamin influences the ability to learn and other cognitive abilities. Disruption in the biosynthesis or transmission of dopamine can lead to Parkinson’s disease. In another experiment a 500Hz signal produced release of neradrenaline in sympathetical neurons (25). Since those neurons control the muscles of internal organs and noraderenaline acts there as a neurotransmitter, an oposite signal should be able to reduce the activity of internal organs and eventually impair human health. The publication of the World Health Organization on the effects of electromagnetic radiation on living organisms from 1981 (25) gives many examples of the effects of microwave radiation on the excretion of glands and chemical composition of blood. Many of those effects could harm human health. Microwave radiation can also affect molecules of DNA and thus affect the development of organisms (25). This was proved by an experiment by Yale neurophysiologist, Jose Delgado, where the irradiation of chicken embryos by 10, 100 and 1000 Hz stopped their development including the development of hearts and veins. The experiment was replicated by the American Navy with the same results. Such attack by microwaves could have, in the long run, disastrous impact on targeted populations.
As a matter of fact microwave radiation can produce many deadly effects. In the experiment by McAffee already mentioned, the microwaves pulsed at 300, 600 and 1000 Hz produced impairment in breathing (even leading to suffocation) in rats. A similar signal could also suffocate human beings. At the conference on Nonlinear Electrodynamics in Biological Systems in 1983 the experiment was presented where blood clots were formed by microwave radiation (26). This capability is also suitable for weaponisation. Similarly dangerous is the finding of Allan Frey that radio frequency radiation can weaken the blood-brain barrier that prevents poisonous chemicals from the access into the brain (30). In 1986 the American Air Force issued a book “Low Intensity Conflict and Modern Technology” (18). The chapter “Electromagnetic Spectrum in Low Intensity Conflict”, was written by Capt. Paul Tyler, who had been the director of the U.S. Navy Electromagnetic Radiation Project from 1970 until 1977. At the beginning of the chapter, Capt. Tyler quotes a source entitled “Final Report on Biotechnology Research Requirements for Aeronautical Systems Through the Year 2000” that had been issued by American Air Force in 1982: “Currently available data allow the projection that specially generated radiofrequency radiation (RFR) fields may pose a powerful and revolutionary antipersonnel military threats ... the passage of approximately 100 miliamperes through the myocardium can lead to cardiac standstill and death ... A rapidly scanning RFR system could provide an effective stun or kill capability over a large area. System effectiveness will be a function of wave form, field intensity, pulse width, repetition frequency, and carrier frequency.”
In less draconian assault, the use of microwaves could be limited just to the influence of human behavior. In 1985 Kathleen McAuliffe visited Jose Delgado in his laboratory in Spain, where he experimented with electromagnetic stimulation of brain. She subsequently wrote an article for the magazine OMNI (27). Jose Delgado showed her how he could make an ape fall asleep, or make it overactive, or how he could calm down fighting fish using suitably modulated microwave radiation.
The next series of experiments shows that human behavior can be controlled in even more intricate ways. In 1962 Allan H. Frey published in the “Journal of Applied Physiology” (28) the results of experimentation with transmission of sounds into the brain by electromagnetic radiation at a distance of up to 1000 feet. The “electromagnetic” sounds were heard by deaf as well as hearing people. In his report, Frey writes that, by then, only the visual system had been shown to respond to electromagnetic energy and he noted that, “With somewhat different transmission parameters we can induce the perception of severe buffeting of the head..” and ”Changing ... parameters again, one can induce a ‘pins-and-needles’ sensation.” Frey’s experiment was replicated several times by other scientists (28). Another, more advanced experiment that involved the transmission of radio modulated with audible sounds into the brain, was published only inadvertently in 1975, when Don R. Justesen published, in the article on "Microwaves and Behavior" (29), the result of an experiment described to him over the telephone conversation by his colleague J. C. Sharp, who worked on a secret military project Pandora. Joseph C. Sharp at the Walter Reed Army Institute improved the method of Frey to the point that he was able to transmit into the experimental subject’s brain words which he could understand. The ability of U.S. military to produce perception of speech in humans by microwave radiation substantiates the article by Sharon Weinberger, “Mind Games”, which was published in The Washington Post in January 2007. In response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed for the article the Air Force released “records that note that the patent was based on human experimentation in October 1994 at the Air Force lab, where scientists were able to transmit phrases into the heads of human subjects” The article also states that “the research laboratory, citing classification, refused to discuss it or release other materials” (31).
Robert Becker, who was twice nominated for Nobel price for his share in the discovery of the effects of pulsed fields at the healing of broken bones, wrote in his book (30) about the experiment by J. F. Schapitz, who stated: “In this investigation it will be shown that the spoken word of hypnotist may also be conveyed by modulated electromagnetic energy directly into the subconcscious parts of the human brain - i. e. without employing any technical devices for receiving or transcoding the messages and without the person exposed to such influence having a chance to control the information input consciously.” In one of the four experiments subjects were given a test of hundred questions, ranging from easy to technical ones. Later, not knowing they were being irradiated, they would be subjected to information beams suggesting the answers to the questions they had left blank, amnesia for some of their correct answers, and memory falsification for other correct answers. After 2 weeks they had to pass the test again (30). The results of those experiments were never published. It is rather evident that in those experiments the messages were sent into human brain in ultrasound frequencies which the human brain perceives, but of which the subject is unaware. According to Russian newspapers, in this way, people may be programmed to perform different actions in the same way people can be programmed under hypnosis. In Moscow there exists Psychocorrection Center, where this method is used to heal psychical diseases such as alcoholism. The use of this method was questioned in the Russian press when general Lev Rokhlin was killed by his wife in his sleep at 2 a.m. after she had had a casual telephone conversation with a female friend. Did her friend use a sequence of words which were supposed to trigger the murderous action? Before his murder General Rokhlin planned for army protests against army reform and visited editor’s desks of Russian newspapers, telling them he might be soon killed in a car accident, during a drinking spree or during an argument with his wife (42).
In his other book “Cross Currents” Robert Becker presents the report coming from the Microwave Research Department at the Walter Reed Army Institute, where J.C. Sharp carried out his experiment with the transmission of words into the brain by radiofrequency radiation. The report deals with the effects of pulsed microwaves on the nervous system and describes the division of testing program into four parts: 1) prompt debilitating effects; 2) prompt stimulation auditory effects; 3) work interference (stoppage) effects; 4) effects on stimulus controlled behavior. The report presents this conclusion: “Microwave pulses appear to couple to the central nervous system and produce stimulation similar to electrical stimulation unrelated to heat” (32).
In the second volume of the Final Report on Biotechnology Research Requirements for Aeronautical Sysmes of the American Air Force it is stated: “While initial attention should be toward degradation of human performance through thermal loading and electromagnetic field effects, subsequent work should address the possibilities of directing and interrogating mental functioning, using externally applied fields…” (33). In the second volume of the report the research was evaluated as "progressing according to the schedule or in advance" and was supposed to be terminated in 2010.
In the Soviet Russia the ongoing research in this area was completely hidden from the public, but change of political system and actual use of this equipment during the putsch against Gorbachov brought this subject to newspapers headlines. According to Russian daily newspapers, during the failed coup d'etat against Gorbachov, General Kobets warned the defenders of the Russian White House that mind control technology could be used against them. After the putsch, respected Russian scientist Victor Sedlecki published a statement in the Russian daily Komsomolskaya Pravda that psychotronic biogenerators were mass produced in the Soviet Union and were used during the failed coup d'etat , but failed to succeed due to the inexperience of the personel who operated them. In the following spree of articles on the subject of mind control, the experiment was published where manipulation of masses of people by microwave radiation was performed. Already in 1974, after successful testing on a military unit in Novosibirsk, the installation Radioson (Radiosleep) was registered with the Government Committee on the Matters of Inventions and Discoveries of the USSR, described as a method of induction of sleep by means of radio waves. Apparently, in 1974, the entire military unit was put to sleep (5).
In the book “Low Intensity Conflict and Modern Technology” (18), Captain Tyler also wrote: “Because of the many parameters involved and the apparent specificity of each parameter, one can tailor a specific response. The ability to have this kind of flexibility provides an enormous range of options to the user. It opens the door for providing an appropriate response in warfare, be it conventional or unconventional” (18). If you object that the range of frequencies in which the human nervous system works is too narrow to provide for such a wide choice of reactions, Capt. Tyler writes: “There are unconfirmed reports that change of 0.01 Hz can make a difference.” Since many activities of human brain are represented by different sequences of frequencies, this provides for further large choices.
At the end of 1994 the first tests of the most powerful radar system in the world were carried out in Alaska. This year its power should reach 10 billion watts and later 100 billion watts. The main features of the system include its ability to heat the ionosphere and in this way change the altitude of the ionosphere. By this kind of manipulation of the ionosphere, it is possible to bounce the electromagnetic waves back from the ionosphere to whichever region of the planet one wishes to target. According to the official information by the U.S. government the system HAARP is designed for scientific research. However, there are too many facts suggesting that the major reason for its construction are military purposes. The main patent of Bernard J. Eastlund (number 4,686,605) proposes the use of the system for destruction of navigation systems of airplanes and missiles wherever in the atmosphere they might be, and for interference with all communication systems anywhere on the planet, and the global weather control. Other patents connected with the system propose the use of the system for induction of detonations in the extent of nuclear explosions and other military uses (33).
Evidently, the warning of Russian intelligence agency FAPSI to the Russian government and the article in the Russian daily “Segodnya” were direct recations to the installation of the U.S. HAARP system. The HAARP system can start pulsing microwave radiation with one thousandth of one Hertz and this means that, when raising pulsing frequencies, it can change pulses of microwave radiations by one thousandths of one Hertz and can control the activity of human brain in frequencies from 1 to 100 Hertz which are crucial for functioning of human nervous system. In June 1995, Michael Persinger, who apparently worked on the American Navy's project of non-lethal electromagnetic weapons “Sleeping Beauty”, published, in a scientific magazine Perception and Motor Skills the article where he states: “the technical capability to influence directly the major portion of the approximately six billion brains of the human species without mediation through classical sensory modalities by generating neural information within a physical medium within which all members of the species are immersed… is now marginally feasible” (34).
John B. Alexander, who later became the Director of Non-lethal Programs in Los Alamos National Laboratory, wrote in his article in the Military Review in the year 1980: “whoever makes the first major breakthrough in this field will have a quantum lead over his opponent, an advantage similar to sole possession of nuclear weapons” (35). Samuel Koslov, a leading personality of the Pandora project that was dedicated to research of effects of microwave radiation on humans, and a researcher at the John Hopkins University, in his closing speech at the conference on Nonlinear Electrodynamics in Biological Systems in 1984, said that the conference had proven that the external electric fields can “become a key to the cellular control console. The implications, social, economic, and even military are enormous.” Koslov went on: “If much of what we have heard is indeed correct, it may be not less significant to the nation than the prospects that faced the physics community in 1939 when the long-time predicted fissionability of the nucleus was actually demonstrated. You may recall the famous letter of Albert Einstein to President Roosvelt. When we’re in a position to do so in terms of our proofs, I would propose that an analogous letter is required” (26).
It is this perspective, of the revolutionary nature of these scientific developments, that gives us the title, “Revolution in Military Affairs and Conflict Short of War”, of a book published by the Strategic Studies Institute at the U.S. Army War College in 1994 (36). Since the national security information is in question, the book cannot tell the readers what technology exactly is making this revolution feasible. From the beginning the authors were aware that the use of this technology may run counter to basic moral and political values of the American society, and in consequence the revolution in military affairs would require a moral and political revolution to come first: ”In the pre-RMA days, psychological operations and psychological warfare were primitive. As they advanced into the electronic and bioelectronic era, it was necessary to rethink our ethical prohibitions on manipulating the minds of enemies (and potential enemies) both international and domestic... Through persistent efforts and very sophisticated domestic ”consciousness raising”, old-fashioned notions of personal privacy and national sovereignty changed.” Since it is difficult for them to imagine that the American society would accept the ethical and political revolution that would deprive the citizen of his privacy, they develop a scenario of events which would lead the American political leaders to back this revolution.
The scenario is placed into the year 2000, and is based on the situation of growing terrorism, drug trafficking and criminality. In the document Rebuilding Americas Defenses, backed by the past U.S. government, we read: “To preserve American military preeminence in the coming decades, the Department of Defense must … seek to exploit the emerging revolution in military affairs … Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor” (ref. 13, pg. 51). Was it by accident that in 2001 a massive terrorist attack ocurred in the USA facilitated by questionable work of U.S. intelligence services and explosives in the World Trade Center and followed by anthrax attacks where the only indicted scientist, Bruce Ivins, did not have the technical means and scientific knowledge to turn the anthrax spores into a deadly aerosol which was used and that those two attacks were followed by an assault on privacy of U.S. Citizens and international law?
The scenario goes on: “The president was thus amenable to the use of the sort of psychotechnology which formed the core of the RMA (revolution in military affairs) in conflict short of war ... As technology changed the way force was applied, things such as personal courage, face-to-face leadership, and the ‘warfighter’ mentality became irrelevant.” So the psychotechnology, which formed the core of the RMA, provided new methods for influencing the psyche of the adversary, in place of the classical strategy to make him fear his death. The book goes on: “Potential or possible supporters of the insurgency around the world were identified using the comprehensive Interagency Integrated Database. These were categorized as ‘potential’ or ‘active’, with sophisticated personality simulations used to develop, tailor and focus psychological campaigns for each. There is also potential for defensive psychotechnology such as ‘strategic personality simulations’ to aid national security decision makers.” (See Norman D. Livergood and Stephen D. Williams, “Strategic Personality Simulation: A New Strategic Concept”, unpublished draft paper, Carlisle Barracks, PAK: U.S. Army War College, 1994). Human behovior and thinking is substantially controlled by emotions. If simulated emotions are broadcasted into somebody’s nervous system they will orient his thinking and behavior. Thoughts are another organizer of human behavior and personal thoughts can be overridden by ultrasound messages. In other words if there was, for example, a new Jesus Christ, U.S. agencies would simply engineer his personality to make sure he would not introduce any cultural changes. Once the strategy of computerized personality simulation is applied, the unfolding of human history will be totally controlled by elites having exclusive access to those technologies. The conclusion of the authors was: “Whether we opt for revolution or evolution, change will occur.”
The concept of the “strategic personality stimulation” is probably tested on some of the people in the USA who claim to be mind control experiments victims, whose number, rapidly growing after 9/11 attacks, inspired the article in Washington Post, entitled “Mind Games” (31) in 2007. Cheryl Welsh, the director of the American organization Mind Justice (38) claims that she has received over 2500 complaints from U.S. citizens. Though some of those people may be mentally ill, many of them defend themselves in a rational way that suggests that they may be mentally sound. The same situation is in Russia. Russian politician Vladimir Lopatin even admitted nonconsensual human-subject experiments had been conducted in Russia, when he wrote in the quoted book: “Compensation of damages and losses connected with social rehabilitation of persons suffering from destructive informational influence must be realized in legal trial…” (14). Growing numbers of complaints are coming as well from China, India and Japan (over 200).
The European Parliament reacted to the installation of HAARP system by calling for “an international convention introducing a global ban on all developments and deployments of weapons which might enable any form of manipulation of human beings” (15, Paragraph 27). The body of the European Parliament STOA (Scientific and Technolgical Options Assessment) in the document “Crowd Control Technologies”, stated that „some of these concerns… have been more specifically covered by the resolution on legal aspects of military activities passed at the meeting of the EP_s Foreign Affairs, Security and defence Policy which called for an international convention and global ban on all research and development , whether civilian or military , which seeks to apply knowledge of the chemical, electrical, sound vibration or other functioning of the human brain to the development of weapons which might enable any form of manipulation of human beings, including a ban on any actual or possible deployment of such systems. (40, pg CII, ref. 369). The „actual“ deployment of those means confirmed US Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich, the author of a Bill introduced into the US Congress in October 2001 proposing a ban on the deployment of “mind control” weapons, when he was quoted to assert that those weapons actually exist and “those people who control them are deadly serious and intend to use them, if we don't stop the weaponisation of space” (10).
Electromagnetic technology enabling remote control of the functioning of human organism is subjected to National Security Information law in the USA (8) and all technologies enabling access to human brain are subject to the same law in the Russian Federation (9). Under such conditions, the mass media cannot fully disclose the existence and capacities of those technologies and world public cannot be engaged in favour of a ban on the use of such capabilities. The ownership of those technologies gives opportunity to governments to use them against individuals (and eventually against masses), without giving them any access to any legal remedy. The concept of the world respecting freedom and human rights is fundamentally corrupted in this way. In November 2000 the Committee on Security of the Russian State Duma stated that capabilities enabling remote control of human nervous system or the remote infliction of health impairment are available to many modern governments (3). This was confirmed by the article from the U.S. army weekly Defense News stating that mind control technologies were used by the Israelis against the Palestinians (12). As well ousted Hunduran president Manuel Zelaya, while under siege in Brazilian embassy in Honduras, complained that he had been subjected to an "electron bombardment with microwaves" which produces "headache and organic destabilisation" (44). When asked by Amy Goodman from Democracy Now: „As president, do you know about this in the Honduran arsenal?” He replied: „Yes, of course“ (45).
Evidently the secret arms race among the world governments may continue until the information war actually breaks out. V. Lopatin, in the book “Psychotronic Weapon and the Security of Russia”, stated that psychotronic war is, as a matter of fact, “already taking place without declaration of war”. In this way the human world may sink into some kind of virtual reality where the independence of human thinking, feeling and decision making will be destroyed as a part of an “information war” or, in the worst case, into the reality where large masses of people will be killed, and unlike the aftermath of the use of nuclear weapons, the planet will still remain inhabitable for the survivors.
With emerging energetic, financial and climate crises either the next world war could erupt, or the means of remote manipulation of human brains and organisms could be applied to control dissatisfied citizens. In the conclusion of the Committee on Security of the Russian State Duma it is stated: “Phone lines, heating and sewer pipes, TVs, fire signalisation can be used as transmitting antennas” (3). Our elected democratic representatives are responsible for foreseeing the emerging crises and preventing them from happening by appropriate measures. However, they do not have mandate from citizens to allow those crises to happen, and then use technologies of mind manipulation to do away with citizen’s dissatisfaction. If this technology is once used against citizens it is questionable whether true democracy will be restored one day. The countries with the most advanced military technologies include the USA, which has never proposed any international initiative aimed at securing the ban of technologies enabling the remote control of human beings. According to the study “Crowd Control Technologies” published by the European Parliament’s STOA office, the USA are the major promoter of the use of those arms. (In fact, it was principally the efforts of the USA government to persuade this outcome that ensured the inclusion in NATO military doctrine of non-lethal technology.) The STOA states: “In October 1999 NATO announced a new policy on non-lethal weapons and their place in allied arsenals”; and “In 1996 non-lethal tools identified by the U.S. Army included… directed energy systems” and “radio frequency weapons”. Directed energy system is further defined: „Directed energy weapon system designed to match radio frequency source to interfere with human brain activity at synapse level“ (40).
According to the Russian government intelligence agency FAPSI, in the last 15 years, the U.S. expenses on the development and acquisition of the means of informational war grew fourfold and at the present time they occupy the first place among all military programs (17),(3). Though there are concepts of informational warfare other than the remote control of human beings, the unwillingnes of the USA to engage in the negotiations aimed at the ban of the manipulation of human brains suggests an intention to use those means in internal as well as in international affairs. If the USA achieve essential military preeminence in this area and if no global ban of the use of those technologies against civilians is negotiated, the USA may become a world totalitarian superpower of the new type.
So far the only government who made a small step toward the ban of those technologies is the Russian Federation where the addendum to the article 6 of the Russian Federation law “On Weapons” was approved on July 26, 2001. The legislation states: “within the territory of the Russian Federation is prohibited the circulation of weapons and other objects … the effects of the operation of which are based on the use of electromagnetic, light, thermal, infra-sonic or ultra-sonic radiations…”. Besides omitting the use of the term “psychotronic energy” that both Lopatin and Kucinich used, the Russian legislation does not provide any means for Russian citizens to defend themselves against the use of those weapons. Nor is there any compulsion upon the police or public health organizations to set up teams capable of detecting radiation that was enabling remote manipulation of human body and nervous system, or the source of such radiation. Nor does this legislation prohibit Russian government agencies from the use of such technology against their own citizens. In the USA alone, some of the federal states have enacted in their laws on firearms, new standards on electric and electromagnetic weapons (Michigan in 2003, Massachusetts in 2004, Maine in 2005). Sanctions go from 15 years in jail to life imprisonment, identically with weapons of mass destruction. As in Russia, those laws do not provide for the defense of citizens against the use of those weapons by government agencies.
On February 25, 2009 Deputy Chief of General Staff of Russian Army, Anatoli Nogovicyn, stated that within 2 or 3 years a full fledged war in informational sphere, including “information-psychlogical influence on population and military units” may break out (39). So far politicians (especially in the USA) have not shown responsible intention to take action to stop this new arms race, which threatens to place human beings in a position subsidiary to machines and to destroy democracy. Humanitarian organizations apparently do not dare to challenge this National Security Information (on several occasions Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch have refused to engage with this issue). Under such circumstances, it is left to citizens themselves to organize defense of their freedoms and elementary human rights, before those technologies are used at war or to suppress their dissatisfaction with governments who failed to prevent the emerging crises. They should coordinate their efforts internationally if they want to succeed.

Related links with more information, documents, survivor accounts, media coverage, etc. about Straight Inc.
"Straight, Inc. (1976-1993) publicly claimed to rehabilitate teenage drug users by using tough love and Alcoholics Anonymous principles. Straight, Inc. provided NO professional counseling: Straight, Inc.'s "treatment model" relied exclusively on "positive peer pressure" from unprofessional staff (program graduates) and from the teenage clients. Straight, Inc. claimed to have an astronomically high success rate and was supported by both the Reagan and Bush administrations."
"However, Straight, Inc. did not publicly reveal what many survivors will tell you. The REAL Straight, Inc. was a facility that used coercive thought reform (aka mind control, brainwashing), public humiliation, sleep & food deprivation, extremely harsh confrontational tactics, kidnapping, isolation and emotional, mental, psychological, verbal and physical abuse to forcibly break us down then remold us in the Straight, Inc. image. Straight, Inc. also operated in secrecy, just like a cult (Straight, Inc. has been listed on at least 2 cult expert websites). No outsiders were ever permitted to know what really went on. Straight's rules and our fear of harsh punishment prevented us from talking to outsiders or from reporting abuses."

I was a former Child Abuse and Neglect Investigator for the State of Florida.
Are you aware that most Child Abuse and Neglect cases are not reported to the authorities because people do not want to get "involved", or they are too ashamed to report the abuse.
Child Abuse and Neglect has become a nationwide epidemic. 5 children die per day from child abuse 80% are under 4 years old. For example: Then there is, Anna Riggs and Brandon Riggs. Those two sold their four-month old child to their drugs dealer for drugs and money. They also did this after they had someone else taking care of the child for a long period of time, and the boy was never seen again until police arrested someone for something unrelated to the current case against the Riggs’ and told them what was going on.
The sale was done to supposedly to ensure the Riggs’ wouldn’t back out of an adoption agreement. How sad that a child only held a monetary value for both sides (www.badbreeders.net).
Maleeya Marie Murley Avalon – Maleeya was a beautiful baby girl with a great smile. The things that she endured at the hands of Molly Jane Roe, who is not Maleeya’s mother, were horrendous. Roe is the personification of evil!
In a fit of rage, because she was mad at her boyfriend, Maleeya’s father, she not only threw this 17 month old baby, causing her to hit her head, she brutalized her. This demented, callous slag tortured this baby in ways that are unfathomable to most. She did everything she could to cause this child pain and torment in a very short time span. Maleeya had bruises all over her, she was raped, bit, and lastly suffered from a head wound and was eventually removed from life support.
I will never forget Maleeya’s smile!
I will also never forget the soulless eyes of Molly Roe! (www.badbreeders.net)
National Media Press Releases 2011 and 2012
‘Male care worker in care home admits to RAPING Alzheimer's residents.’
‘CARE assistant SACKED for feeding dog biscuits to a resident at BUPA run care home.’
‘Care home workers filmed BEATING frail dementia resident.’
‘Care home worker DRAGGED dementia resident along corridor like a rag doll.’
‘Elderly Alzheimer’s resident being HIT in face, SHOVED into wall and THROWN on to bed.’
‘Accused of SHOVING a patient's soiled sheet in his face before telling him 'when dogs do this, their owners rub their noses in it.’ (November 2009)
‘89 year old LEFT on floor BLEEDING whilst care worker prayed.’
You can read this small selection of press articles on abuse on our Facebook page Your Voice Matters.
We do not want to see headlines such as these and it is alarming when you think this is the tip of the iceberg, with many cases not even being reported.
The only way to prove abuse and bad practice is by visual evidence, and this has been proven time and time again with media exposures, especially with the Winterborne case and the more recent Panorama coverage.
Bedrooms and bathrooms provide a secret place for neglect and abuse to take place and often inflicted on residents who are unable to speak about what has happened to them. What is more degrading, being abused and neglected or being monitored under controlled filming?
The word of a relative or good care worker is often dismissed by care providers, Care Quality Commission, Social Services etc. with disastrous consequences. Relatives may end up being victimised or even banned. Care workers can be bullied or at worse lose their jobs.
CCTV is vital to back up allegations. Concerned relatives would be reassured and good care workers would feel less fearful of whistle blowing.
It is also paramount CCTV monitoring is managed by an independent body, not connected to the Government, Care Sector, NHS or care charity. Independent and Transparent are the key words.
Privacy and dignity may be questioned. Care workers are currently allowed to carry personal mobiles on their person whilst on duty. My fears were confirmed in a Daily Mail press release July 2012, where care workers used their personal mobile telephones to record abuse of a resident. There is also a press release of this happening in a BUPA care home in 2010. So nothing has changed, despite all the guidelines etc.
A resident already has two pairs of stranger’s eyes on them during personal care, what difference is one more? Cameras could be positioned to maintain as much dignity as possible. Surely this is better than being abused or neglected. I know which I would prefer.
It would cost approximately £300 for a family to install their own camera in their loved one's bedroom, this would be connected to their home computer and be password protected. We feel a family have a right to do this. There would be no arguments from the care sector with regards cost and monitoring.
If this petition helps to achieve compulsory CCTV in communal areas with the option for families to install their own for personal monitoring in private areas, then that is a start.
PLEASE HELP ..... our elderly and vulnerable need us to do this and don't forget one day the victim of abuse could be YOU or someone you love.
Australia has some of the most lenient laws when it comes to animal abuse and abusers. Some do not even get a conviction.
Recently, there have been some shocking cases of animal abuse in this country and it has prompted me to act., We should have a National Animal Abusers database, similar to the paedophile database, that once a person harms an animal, their name is put on this database, so any registered, responsible seller, including animal welfare organisations, who legally sell an animals, can look up this database, to see who they are selling their animals to.
I'm hoping it will reduce the number of animal abuse cases in this country and also put a stop to puppy mills.
Malaysia: A disturbing 4-minute home video (link below) shows Ira beating, kicking, pinching, and throwing objects at the defenseless 8 month old baby.
Another person who is taping the action is heard telling Ira, to stop her cruel actions. Most of those who have watched the video are deeply enraged by both the mother and the video taper – the former for abusing the baby, and the latter for letting it happen without intervening.
The local Malaysian police have taken action against the woman and it is said that the woman was charged and jailed for 18 months in Petaling Jaya last year.
What is "new" is that the video has been released, is going viral, and gives us opportunity to protest against ALL child abuse, regardless of country or culture, and request appropriate sentences against perpetrators.
WARNING: video is disturbing and cannot be re-published at GoPetition.
