Just to let you know that some of us FSM-ers are still very active. I, for
instance, am the Executive Director of Nevada Desert Experience, [www.NevadaDesertExperience.org]
the anti-nuclear group that has organized literally 1,000s of people for
peaceful demonstrations at the Nevada Test Site over the last 20 years (this
weekend is our 20th anniversary). We have about 5,000 members here and abroad,
and our past activities have contributed to the achievement of the
Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (still undergoing international ratification),
and the closure of a nuclear weapons testing site in the ex-USSR, among other
We are rapidly expanding our activities due to the rise in US militarism,
the continued aggressive nuclear weapons development program in this country
(euphemistically named "Stockpile Stewardship Program"), and the
spectre of Star Wars' return.
In fact, the US Space Command's "Vision for 2020" project is now
quickly integrating space technology, nuclear technology, and high-energy
lasers (used as offensive weapons) to put into orbit around earth by the year
2020 armed space stations in order to control the planet militarily and
economically. I have documents to prove these claims, available on request.
With its contracts with the Dept. of Energy to operate Lawrence Livermore
National Lab & Los Alamos National Lab, both of which, along with Sandia
Labs, and many other players in the military industrial complex (the biggest
corporate contractors are Boeing, TRW, Hewlett-Packard, and Raytheon, but
there are many others), UC is complicit with this very dangerous plan.
We are building a movement, nationally and globally, using the traditions
of King and Ghandi, to energize people everywhere to resist what is going on.
If you are open to discussing these current issues and responses to them,
let me know. I hope that the spirit of FSM lives on in your event - it
certainly does in ours.
We have a number of events coming up which people can find out about on our
