>>MARCH 8,1998 UPDATE
>>
>>From: "Chris Reid " <dolphins@ilhawaii.net>
>>To: "Darby Davis" <awarenessmag@earthlink.net>
>>
>>Dear Darby,
>>
>>Actually, the rumor that an injunction was awarded is unfounded. Please
>>note the following memo sent yesterday to try and quell the
>>misinformation.
>>
>>
>>Per Ben White, who was in Honolulu yesterday, the judge has NOT rendered
>>her decision, which frankly gives us hope. She has been provided with
>>the latest release re:whale strandings in Greece also. I can only guess
>>that "XXXX" heard there was a hearing, and confused that with the
>>granting of the injunction.
>>
>>There is a group of protesters in the water again today, and despite
>>what the Navy claims, it is believed that they did interfere with the
>>testing for 4-5 hours on Friday. The Coast Guard showed up yesterday
>>and practiced their "scare tactics" on the local vessel contingency, and
>>has been keeping company on the high seas with the Cory Chouest since.
>>
>>
>>
>>MARCH 9, 1998 UPDATE
>>
>>The protestors were able to shut the Navy down again yesterday for about
>>five hours. We also had a wonderful dialogue with the Coast Guard, in
>>which we clarified the parameters we need to follow to stage a peaceful
>>demonstration at sea. They were surprisingly supportive of our efforts.
>>We are stepping up our efforts in order to stop them (The Navy) from
>>testing altogether, but face difficulty in enlisting enough boats to
>>stay on them at all times. We are urgently seeking funding to hire a
>>live-aboard vessel for a couple of weeks that will not have to leave the
>>test ship. We could then ferry the press and swim volunteers back and
>>forth to the shore with smaller, faster craft.
>>
>>I hope that brings you up to speed. Of course, we continue to pray for a
>>ruling in favor of the whales and our beloved planet.
>>
>>Mahalo for your assistance,
>>
>>Chris Reid

>>MARCH 10, 1998 UPDATE

>>From: benedick@dreamweaving.com
>>Subject: Whales and Dolphins: Dead and Dying from LFAS
>>
>>Aloha from Hawai'i,
>>
>>As we e-mail this to you a baby whale lies abandoned and dying
>>undoubtedly as a result of the LFAS testing. It cannot survive
>>without its mother. This is the second such death in two weeks in the
>>same Hawai'i waters where the US Navy is testing the Low Frequency
>>Active Sonar.
>>
>>You have a choice, a Conscious Choice to peacefully protest:
>>
>>Please e-mail your protest to those on the list below and circulate this
>>e-mail to everyone you know this week. The goal this week is to e-mail
>>500,000 protests. Your voice can contribute to make it happen. It
>>concerns the livelihood of the whales and dolphins that are being killed
>>by the US Navy in the waters of Hawai'i and waters around the planet. It
>>concerns the livelihood of our oceans, the mammals and fish that inhabit
>>them and ultimately our planet.
>>
>>This is a regional and international issue. Please send protests to the
>>media, your local politicians and congressmen. Some suggested e-mail
>>addresses are included below. Please forward new addresses to
>>mailto:lfas@dreamweaving.com
>>
>>Read the following and there is a full version of this letter and other
>>details so visit the site at http://www.dreamweaving.com/lfas.htm for
>>current updates. You can also hyperlink your e-mails to those mentioned
>>below directly from the site at http://www.dreamweaving.com/lfas308.htm
>>
>>If you have an e-mail distribution list and would like to be put on our
>>e-mail list mailto:lfas@dreamweaving.com and put "add" in subject
>>header. Otherwise visit the site for updates.
>>
>>THE PLOT THICKENS:
>>
>>The last week with the LFAS is beginning to read like an excellent
>>script for a movie. Hey you folks in Hollywood listen up. It
>>has all the topical flavors with personal and political twists that so
>>easily take us in another direction and mask the real issues at hand -
>>the livelihood of life on this planet.
>>
>>This is a lesson of discernment for all of us to take a stand and to be
>>heard, you can make a difference here right now by sending out your
>>protests.
>>
>>Last week thousands of e-mail and fax protests went out. This week it
>>needs to be hundreds of thousands. The killing has to stop. And thanks
>>for your efforts last week it has brought these issues to many peoples
>>attention. By forwarding this appeal last week thousands have petitioned
>>our local politicians all the way to the Vice President and the
>>President of the United States.
>>
>>But sadly that was not enough, a baby whale lies abandoned and dying
>>because the US Navy has got permission to kill our whales and apparently
>>200 dolphins in the Mediterranean. What does it take to put a stop to
>>this? Hopefully this week's goal is 500,000 e-mail protests will have
>>them sit up and take action.
>>
>>The events in the last week have brought news that the LFAS is a much
>>larger problem than locally in Hawai'i. As reported in the Guardian
>>newspaper March 3rd out of England and also in the Sydney daily
>>newspaper, 13 Cuvier's beaked whales were found stranded off Greece the
>>next day after LFAS broadcast by the US Navy. And in the last few weeks
>>(I am not sure of the time period) 200 dolphins have been found blown up
>>in the Mediterranean sea.
>>
>>For more information on source materials for the above go to
>>http://www.dreamweaving.com/lfas308.htm
>>
>>
>>This is very serious business. Read the following and petition your
>>local media and politicians.
>>
>>
>>THE SOUND EQUATION:
>>
>>Last week I tracked down Sir Peter Guy Manners' assistant Dr Dudley
>>Finch, they were both in Florida treating patients and presenting their
>>work to the medical establishment. Through their expertise they can
>>predict precisely the type of damage that is done with LFAS sound. They
>>are the only experts in the world (that I know) who have many decades of
>>medical experience of the use of sound in altering the physiology of
>>living tissue. If you have any sound clips of the LFAS please forward to
>>me for their analysis.
>>
>>Sir Peter wrote:
>>
>>"...the likely effects (of LFAS) on marine animals in our opinion could
>>be disastrous, causing cell and tissue damage as well as affecting the
>>brain and nervous system"
>>
>>For more information on the "sound equation" go to
>>http://www.dreamweaving.com/lfas2.htm
>>
>>Our scientists and medical experts need to contact Sir Peter because the
>>sound does not necessarily affect the living tissue in ways that can be
>>conventionally measured or observed and will not always show up in
>>autopsies. It effects the energy and the structure of the cells. Hence
>>the whales are beaching sometimes, as in the Greece incident alive
>>probably from lower intensities exposures and at other times blown apart
>>from higher intensities in the recent case of the dolphins.
>>One would normally assume that the louder the sound the worse the
>>damage. However, that is not always the case. It is the combination of
>>the frequencies that do the damage, or if used appropriately good. Sir
>>Peter can break up tumors non surgically with sound, or in my work we
>>use sound vibroacoustically through the body to relieve stress. I
>>believe the Navy has this data and is classified, not only could they
>>use the sound to knock out say the electrical system of a submarine, but
>>by switching frequencies and depending on the distance to the sub they
>>could kill everyone on board, or maim or stun. Just like a dolphin or
>>some whales stun their prey with their sonar. Except the US Navy can
>>broadcast at 230 dB, 10,000 times louder than a 747 taking off.
>>
>>Last Saturday March 7th we heard the LFAS sound broadcast at hourly
>>intervals for several seconds. We heard three broadcasts. That day, we
>>were about 10 miles (my guestimate) from the sending vessel so the
>>levels were below the local background levels of the whales singing and
>>grunting around our boat. We did get a recording, and I will post it as
>>soon as I get a copy. They were using frequencies around middle "C" and
>>stepping up the frequencies. There appeared to be some change in
>>the whale's sounds, if anything their song activity appeared to increase
>>after the 8(?) second broadcast. However, you can be assured with all
>>the public interest they are being very mindful about the power and the
>>frequencies they use.
>>
>>The earliest report of the Navy using the LFAS dates back to the early
>>1980's so you can bet that they have compiled lots of data already, so
>>why the testing in Hawai'i? It occurs to us that the testing here is to
>>determine the thresholds they can broadcast to stun and enemy sub or UFO
>>or whatever the situation may be. They are using the birthing waters
>>here to test those thresholds and show to the conservationists,
>>environmentalists and research folks that LFAS is safe, but the dying
>>baby whale tells us its a lie.
>>
>>So again the time for a public outcry is right NOW!
>>
>>DELAY TACTICS:
>>
>>Last week there was a continuation of the hearing in Honolulu brought
>>forward by lawyer Paul Achitoff for the Earth Justice Legal Defense
>>Fund. Presently, Judge Helen Gillmor is considering her action and will
>>make a decision this week. It is already too late. Have you ever looked
>>into the eye of a dying baby whale?
>>
>>So again the time for your protest is right NOW!!
>>
>>These political delay tactics and maneuvers are all so common. We urge
>>you to send another round of protests to the addresses below, it made a
>>huge difference last week and we urge you to follow up again today. And
>>if you didn't get the seriousness of this message last week take action
>>right now.
>>
>>The New York times is considering an article on the LFAS and may be out
>>today, swimmers have been in the water around the sending vessel last
>>week and now the coast guard cutter is hovering around to harass the
>>protesters. It is getting nasty. Is it going to take the death of a
>>human to get the public attention? Hopefully not.
>>
>>Your e-mail protest could prevent all of that and peacefully resolve the
>>issue now.
>>
>>
>>
>>WHAT YOU CAN DO?
>>
>>The time is NOW. Send protests to the media, your local politicians and
>>environmentalist groups. Then,send this e-mail to
>>everyone you know.
>>
>>
>>In the header of your email or fax put "Whales and Dolphins dead and
>>dying from LFAS" And words to the effect:
>>
>>"This is an urgent appeal to stop the US Navy killing of whales and
>>dolphins with LFAS. Recent reports in the European press have linked the
>>US Navy to killing whales and possibly 200 dolphins in the
>>Mediterranean. Please stop this and the current LFAS testing in the
>>Hawaiin waters".
