From Liza Parker, of Canada:

I am forwarding information about a rally in Washington in October, coordinated
by the Southeastern Christian Association and Dr. Gillam. If you have any inquiries,
please contact the people listed below. This information will also be posted on
www.eharassment.ca

I fully support Dr. Gillam's efforts to help victims of electronic harassment.

Liza's Car Pool Information:

I have added a page at www.eharassment.ca for people who have transportation
to offer (i.e. you can pick people up along the way), or want transportation to the
rally in Washington on October 8th, 2005.

Liza

P.S. If I go to the rally (I'm not sure yet what my plans are) I can take and/or pick
up 3 people along the way. I've posted my own listing along with a link to a map of
the route I would be taking. I will know in a few days if I am going.

NOTICE:
I am aware of three car pooling forms so far that were filled out but
haven't gotten to me - there may be more.  The perps are obviously
seriously trying to block this stuff.  (One made it, so the form is
working fine).  If you want to post a carpool announcement at:

http://ca.geocities.com/lp2003@rogers.com/transportation.htm ,

then email me the information directly at lp2003@rogers.com or
lnp2003@rogers.com.  If it is not posted within 24 hours, chances are
good I didn't get the form or the email.  So email me again (and again)
until I get the information.

Please let me know the following in your email:

-> Do you need a ride, or are you offering a ride.

-> Departure date

-> Return date

-> Departure city

-> Your name and any contact info you want to supply, like email
address or phone number.

-> Any additional comments.

Thanks
Liza

From Eleanor White, of Canada:

I do hope all who attend the Washington DC rally will
look for as many opportunities to share our *information*
with the *public* as well as any government officials who
may listen.

I recommend carrying copies of these two items:

http://www.raven1.net/5techs.htm
http://www.raven1.net/terstalk.htm

And for those who can afford to have a copy shop
print some ten-per-page business cards relating to
the vigilante stalking side of our issue, have the
copy shop print this on ten-per-page pre-cut stock:

http://www.raven1.net/vigcard.cdr

These can be printed in black and white to save
cost - they are still effective in black and white.

(Copy shops can download it from the web, or,
you can save it to a floppy diskette and hand the
diskette to shop staff.)

And finally, remember our mixed-issue 9/11 "dollars",
which can be printed four per page, front and back,
and which will need to be cut out. **DIGITAL**
photocopies are much better for showing detail:

http://www.raven1.net/911dollar1d.cdr
http://www.raven1.net/911dollar2.cdr
(.cdrs give better results printed by copy shop)

http://www.raven1.net/911dollar1d.gif
http://www.raven1.net/911dollar2.gif
(.gifs can be viewed on your screen and also printed)

Likewise, the "dollars" are very effective even in black
and white.

May God bless and keep you all,

Eleanor White

From Sueann Campbell, of Texas:

The DC rally is an event we all have worked toward
for a long time.  We are now and will remain a political
force to be reckoned with.  We will get our message
out to every politician and lobbyist on Capitol Hill.
We will continue to get our message out so that no
one in the Congress will be able to plead ignorance
to our cause.

Wishing everyone a safe trip to and from the DC rally.

UPDATE ON WASHINGTON D. C. RALLY

Thanks to Mary Ann Stratton for joining the list of volunteers who are helping
to coordinate the Washington D. C. rally and Senate hearing.  Her expertise in
managing the Controlled America seminars across the country is an important
asset to our events.

The purpose of the rally and hearing is to
(1) raise public awareness,
(2) gain the interest of the media and
(3) encourage politicians to pass legislation that will
help to promptly end the misuse of electronic weapons and related technology.

It is important that we have a large turnout and all join together as a team to
make sure that this event is a success.

The rally is on Saturday, October 8 at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, area 5,
at the corner of Constitution Avenue NW at 21st Street NW, Washington D. C.
from 9 am to 5 pm.  The Columbus Day holiday makes it a three day weekend
for many of us.

The confirmed speakers are:

Judi Chase
Dr. Gillam
Harlan Garrard
Ted Gunderson
John McMurtrey
Joe Pena
Mary AnnStratton
Krissy Stull
Gloria Naylor

the right number of participants.  Derrick, who is another event volunteer, can be
contacted at 513-531-8873 or southeastern115@yahoo.com.
