"Updates On Updates On Complaints"

"Jersey Complaints Procedure Is
A Laughing Stock"

"Complaint Against Mike Bowron"

Chief Officer Mike Bowron

As readers will remember, I lodged a complaint against the Chief Officer of the States of Jersey Police, Mike Bowron, this was as a consequence of the officers under his command refusing my lawful request to furnish me with information regarding my arrest, and the illegal ransacking of my home. This was the case where I had to complain to Mr Bowron, about Mr Bowron! This point will become much more relevant later on in the posting.

This story can be read at the link directly below.

Chief Inspector Alison Fossey

After rebutting the statement the Jersey police had written for me, and then making my own statement to the police, I was told that Chief Inspector Alison Fossey would be the person looking into my complaint. Ms Fossey has not contacted me during her investigations, but rang me two weeks ago to inform me that her investigation was complete, and that a file had been submitted. Presumably, DCO Barry Taylor or Ian Le Marquand will be getting back to me in the future in this regard. The same two individuals I have ongoing complaints against for perverting the course of justice, dereliction of....Aaah, never mind, read for yourselves.

"Complaint Against Bridget Shaw"

Bridget "I don't know what you mean" Shaw

As anticipated, I have had no further contact from anyone with regards to this complaint. Shaw is one of the Jersey Oligarchy's prized stooges who does their bidding without question, it will take some doing to get this crook imprisoned, or even reprimanded.


"Complaint Against Four Bullying Lying Cops"



Again, not a peep from the Jersey authorities on this one. However, I did recently write to DCO Barry Taylor again requesting a copy of the independent investigation report into this case which he initially refused to give me. My recent letter is below.

Deputy Chief Officer Barry Taylor


D.C.O Barry Taylor
Police Headquarters
Rouge Bouillon, St Helier
18/03/2013

Dear Sir

I find myself, yet again, writing to request a copy of the report compiled by Mr William Little and his colleague into the case of 21/06/2006 where I was grave and criminally assaulted by four of your officers, and which officers then went on to commit perjury at my subsequent trial. I have no legal representation now as my Advocate has all but abandoned my cases, so again I am requesting a copy of this report.

If you believe that there is any lawful justification why I cannot be given a copy of this report, could you please state that reason for the record. I find it utterly incomprehensible that I cannot have access to material related to my own complaint, and which lack of disclosure of such material is preventing me from progressing in a civil case against these officers.

I look forward to a positive response from yourself at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely

Will I receive a response? And if so, when?


"Complaints Against Advocates Tim 

Hanson & Barbara Corbett"



"The History"

Advocate Tim Hanson

My complaint against Tim Hanson was that he, like his predecessor Advocate Thacker, had not given me the evidence report of the alleged I.T.Expert who is supposed to have inspected Advocate Bales computer to determine whether or not a particular letter had ever been created on that computer, and on a particular date.

Advocate Barbara Corbett

My complaint against Advocate Corbett after she had been appointed on legal aid to look into the merits of a civil case against the establishment, had failed to act on virtually all of my instructions to her, this being tantamount to gross negligence.

On the 27th January 2013, I set about writing to the Chief Executive Officer of the Jersey Law Society, Jane Martin, and not for the first time. Ms Martin has, in the past, been very helpful and seemed really conscientious in her duty as C.E.O. of the Law Society.

Sadly, it has now been eight weeks since I wrote and I have still not received a reply. The story of Advocates Hanson & Corbett can be read at the link directly below.



Oddly enough, after posting this article on the 19th March 2013 on this blog, I received the very next day, a response from the new Chief Executive Officer of the Jersey Law Society. Yup, it looks like Jane Martin is another one who has left her position! This sure is becoming a rather frequent occurrence....

The new C.E.O of the Law Society is Mr Neville Benbow who sent me the following Email in relation to my complaints.

C.E.O Neville Benbow




Dear Mr Evans

I refer to your email of 27 January 2013, addressed to Jane Martin, who I have just succeeded as Chief Executive Officer of the Law Society of Jersey.   Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to you as a result of this change.

I note your wish to lodge a complaint of gross negligence against Advocate Hanson, on the basis of his refusal to refer, to a disciplinary committee, your complaint against Advocate Thacker which, in turn, related to the refusal by Advocate Thacker to refer your original complaint against Advocate Bale to a disciplinary committee. 

The Law Society of Jersey (Disciplinary Proceedings) Rules 2010 detail the basis upon which complaints against members of the Law Society of Jersey can proceed; the role of President of the Law Society carries with it a responsibility to adjudicate on whether a complaint is referred to a disciplinary committee.  It is a decision, taken in good faith, that is based on the assessment of the complaint, as submitted, together with any supporting evidence provided by the complainant, and a determination as to whether a member of the Law Society has breached the Code of Conduct, the underlying rules which govern how lawyers should practice and conduct themselves and, as such, may be guilty of professional misconduct.

The adjudication of a complaint, by the President, is part of his statutory duty under the provision of the associated Law and Rules.  It is difficult to see how such an adjudication could be construed as professional misconduct or a breach of the Code of Conduct.  However, as you will be aware, where the decision is made not to refer a complaint, on the basis that there is no evidence that the Code of Conduct has been breached or the complaint is considered to be vexatious, frivolous or trivial, the President is required to inform the Attorney General of his decision.  In the event that a complainant feels that the decision by the President is wrong or flawed, he may appeal in writing to the Attorney General.  The Attorney General will then determine whether a complaint should be re-examined.  Where further action is deemed appropriate and necessary, the matter may either be referred back to the Law Society to review or take to a disciplinary committee or the Attorney General may decide to take action himself.  The decision, therefore, rests with the Attorney General.  The only other course of action that you may wish to consider is to apply for a Judicial Review of the President's decision, although you may incur legal costs in pursuing such an action. 

Accordingly, if you wish to pursue your complaint against Advocate Hanson, this can only be undertaken through reference to the Attorney General to appeal the adjudication, or by seeking a Judicial Review.

Turning to your complaint against Advocate Corbett, having made enquiries in this regard, there is no record of you having made a complaint to Advocate Corbett's firm, Hanson Renouf, to give them the opportunity to address your concerns.  The Law Society is unable to review any complaints until such time as a complainant has raised a complaint with the firm itself and gone through their complaints process.  May I suggest that, in the first instance, you arrange to meet with Advocate Corbett as the first step in Hanson Renouf'scomplaints process.  If, at the conclusion of this process, you still wish to make a complaint, you may of course do so.  Any such complaint does need to be submitted on a formal complaint form, signed and returned to the Law Society.  In this regard, I am enclosing the complaints form, notes to complainants and guidance notes on complaints against members of the Law Society of Jersey.  

In relation to your points in respect of Legal Aid, you will be aware that, unlike other jurisdictions, lawyers in Jersey provide the island's Legal Aid system through the provision of free or subsidised legal services to those who are eligible.  While I understand and appreciate your desire to be represented by a lawyer who practices in a relevant field, the Legal Aid system is not set up in this manner with Legal Aid responsibilities distributed on a rota system to lawyers who have been qualified for less than 15 years.  Without a major overhaul in the manner in which the system operates, which would need to include a review of how Legal Aid is funded, it is unlikely that the position will change in the short term. 

Finally, in relation to your enquiry on the Jersey Police Complaints Authority, the Law Society does not maintain details of membership or contact details for the Authority.  However, details of the JPCA and how to complain can be found on the States of Jersey website (www.gov.je) under Government and administration > Comments, compliments and complaints or the Citizens Advice Bureau website (www.cab.org.je) under General.

Yours sincerely

Neville Benbow



I have responded to Mr Benbow with the Email that is below. In it, I point out the contentious issues that need addressing and correct some of the points in the above Email.


Dear Mr Benbow

Thank you for your Email of the 20th March 2013 wherein you state "I note your wish to lodge a complaint of gross negligence against Advocate Hanson, on the basis of his refusal to refer, to a disciplinary committee, your complaint against Advocate Thacker which, in turn, related to the refusal by Advocate Thacker to refer your original complaint against Advocate Bale to a disciplinary committee. ". I am unsure as to how you came to deduce this from my letter of complaint?

My letter to Jane Martin clearly states that "I have received a ruling from Adv Tim Hanson, President of the Jersey Law Society (see attachments) with regard to my complaint against Adv Thacker which is wholly unsatisfactory, and in my opinion, inconclusive. He has declined, as Adv Thacker did with my complaint against Adv Bale, to provide me with the 'alleged' evidence that he cleared Adv Thacker of any wrongdoing with, namely, the independent I.T Experts report on the data 'allegedly' collected from Adv Bales computer.It is quite apparent from this paragraph that my complaint was based solely on the fact that the 'alleged' evidence of the I.T Expert, which was used to clear Advocate Bale and Advocate Thacker of any wrongdoing, has still not been handed to me for inspection, challenge, or rebuttal?

It is all fine and well to say that this 'alleged' experts evidence is conclusive in the matter, it is however, rather less compelling when the complainant is not given the evidence to prove that this is, in fact, the case. I would have thought that evidence that is contrary to my claim should be produced, should it not?

Turning now to my complaint against Advocate Corbett, you state that "Turning to your complaint against Advocate Corbett, having made enquiries in this regard, there is no record of you having made a complaint to Advocate Corbett's firm, Hanson Renouf, to give them the opportunity to address your concerns.  The Law Society is unable to review any complaints until such time as a complainant has raised a complaint with the firm itself and gone through their complaints process.  May I suggest that, in the first instance, you arrange to meet with Advocate Corbett as the first step in Hanson Renouf's complaints process". It is fair to say in this instance that, no, I have not officially lodged a formal complaint with the law firm Hanson/Renouf. You then go on to advise that I might seek a meeting with Advocate Corbett to address my concerns. Well, the last time I spoke with Advocate Corbett was an hour long meeting at her offices, to discuss these very issues and concerns. The result of this meeting, and the lack of progress pertaining to it, resulted in the complaint to Jane Martin.

Given that Tim Hanson is Barbara Corbett's partner in the law firm, would you not consider that there is an overriding concern with regard to impartiality and conflict of interest here?

I look forward to your thoughts on the issues that I have now raised.

Yours sincerely


Ian-Leslie:Evans



As we can see from these two letter, and as in the case above with Mike Bowron, I am forced to complain to the very people I am complaining about!

How does that work again?

Is it any wonder that the common pleb cannot achieve any sort of justice in Jersey when everything in the system is deliberately geared for the system to win?

"Only The 'Jersey Evening Post' Could Praise A Child Abuser"

"Child Abuser, Mario Lundy, does a runner as the Committee of Inquiry is passed"


Click on the pic to read it.



"More Selective Reporting"

In the paper cutting above, the Jersey Evening Post, A.K.A (The Filthy Rag) elect not to mention that Mario Lundy worked at Haut De La Garenne. Recently, at the Royal Court trial of the Jordan's for child abuse, a number of witnesses stated that the Jordan's were not nice people, but Mario Lundy was far far worse than the Jordan's ever were. The children were literally terrified of this monster and stated so in court, yet the Jersey Government refused to prosecute him and continue to pay him a huge wage to this day. No doubt the recently passed Committee of Inquiry into child abuse has been a factor in finally getting rid of this vile animal.

It is also rumoured that whilst at Les Chenes, in a staff meeting Lundy said words to the effect that no one was to touch the children in respect of disciplinary matters, he said that that was his job and his job alone. I wonder what gold plated pay-off and pension awaits this scum bag?

The link below will take you to the Blog of Ex Senator Stuart Syvret where Stuart gives a rather harrowing account of the crimes of Mario Lundy and Tom McKeon A.K.A (The Pinball Wizard) wherein he achieved this nickname for his incredible ability to hurl defenceless children at classroom walls to see how far he could get them to bounce!!!

"The Church V's Emperor Bailhache - It Was Only A Matter Of Time"


Sen Bailhache "Dean's suspension

was a mistake"


Senator Sir Philip Bailhache believes the report is unfairly critical of the Dean and has damaged his reputation.

Senator Sir Philip Bailhache has written an open letter to the Archbishop of Canterbury expressing his ‘deep dismay’ over the suspension of Dean Bob Key, saying the Bishop made a ‘mistake’.

The former Bailiff is confused over how the Dean could have been suspended saying this action has caused shock and bewilderment in the island.

He believes the report is unfairly critical of the Dean and has damaged his reputation.

Senator Bailhache is concerned as to how the reviewer published the report and believes she was bias in her review.

He says, “The reviewer appears to have approached her task with a predetermined view that procedures in Jersey were inadequate. In my view she has allowed her empathy for HG to cloud her objectivity.

The Senator is also concerned that the Bishop, the Right Reverend Tim Dakin is not aware of Jersey Canon Law. He says, “His failure to show a copy of the report to the Dean was in breach of the principles of natural justice and arguably unlawful.”

“Both the Dean and Mrs Key have been treated unfairly and great distress has been caused in Jersey.”

He says it is unclear if this investigation in disciplinary. Because if it is, it would breach Jersey’s law, the 2012 Canons.

Senator Bailhache believes the bishop does not appear to fully understand the traditional connection between the church and state in Jersey.

He wants the Archbishop to take a personal interest in this situation because he says, “it threatens to do serious harm on the church in Jersey and could cause lasting damage.”

Yesterday the Bishop of Winchester published the terms of reference of the inquiry.

"Ministry Of Justice? Responsibility For Jersey? Pull The Other One!"

UK and islands' relations reviewed


According to Lord McNally and his Crown Dependencies Team, Jersey has it's own judicial system and the English authorities cannot interfere. So how come they can interfere now?



Dear Mr R Sorda,


Subject: Graham Powers Judicial Review – Conflict of Interest

Thank you for your email dated 10 May 2012 copied to the Secretary of State of Ministry of Justice, in which you raise your concerns about the conflict of interest of Mr. Graham Powers in relation to his Judicial Review. Your email has been forwarded to the Crown Dependencies Team as we are responsible for managing the relationship between the UK and Crown Dependencies. I have been asked to reply. 

At the outset, I should explain that Jersey is not a part of the United Kingdom. It is an internally self-governing Dependency of the Crown with its own legislative assembly, its own administrative, fiscal and legal systems and its own courts of law.

Consequently, the Judicial Review and any conflict of interest relating to it, are a domestic matter for the Jersey legal system (Courts) and not an issue upon which it would be appropriate for the Ministry of to intervene or comment upon.

Yours sincerely,

Manjula Rettna Kumar 
Crown Dependencies Team





"PRICELESS"

Moves to improve the relationship between the UK and the Crown Dependencies will be reviewed by the Justice Select Committee.
The Ministry of Justice has responsibility for relations with Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man.
In 2010, the committee suggested changes to the ministry aimed at improving the relationship.
Sir Alan Beith MP, its chairman, said he wanted to see what had changed and how effective it had been.
He said the recommendations made three years ago included a call for UK departments to take more care over the possible impact on the islands of any changes to their legislation.
The committee said there should be more direct-dealing between ministries and the islands, rather than all correspondence going through the Ministry of Justice.

Sir Alan Beith said good and bad
examples would be analysed

'Recommendations right?'
"It's only on matters of good governance, international relations and what we describe as good neighbour issues that they ought to become involved," Sir Alan said.

He said of the recommendations: "They've largely been implemented and the present minister Lord McNally... has sought to carry out most of our recommendations.
"There's one or two we didn't agree about, for example on how Guernsey is represented and the dependencies are represented in international negotiations where the UK is pursuing its own interests as well."
Sir Alan said the review aimed to establish "whether we made the right recommendations and whether they worked in practice".

Changes in relations 2010-2013

  • March 2013 - UK budget includes tax avoidance and evasion measures expected to recoup £3bn in unpaid taxes from the islands, figure disputed by island officials
  • March 2013 - Jersey signs tax sharing agreement with UK
  • February 2013 - Isle of Man signs UK FATCA
  • April 2012 - Low Value Consignment Relief ends
  • April 2012 - HM Revenue and Customs announces clampdown on QROPS, the overseas pension scheme
  • November 2011 - UK announces end of Low Value Consignment Relief
  • April 2011 - Jersey and UK agree reciprocal health deal
  • September 2010 - Isle of Man and UK sign new reciprocal health agreement
  • April 2010 - Reciprocal health agreements with all three islands end
  • March 2010 - Previous review by Justice Select Committee

'Resolving differences'
In recent years, areas where the relationship has been strained include the loss of Low Value Consignment Relief, which allowed certain items to be sent to UK VAT-free, the ending of reciprocal health agreements and the clampdown on tax evasion, the latest move being announced in the UK budget.
Sir Alan said: "There will always be these kind of issues given that Guernsey operates a different tax regime and caters in different ways to different financial markets.
"There was a particularly bad experience of changes to reciprocal health arrangements... which was a particular example of how not to do it.
"We analysed that in some detail, we wanted to make sure that when these issues come up, as they will, there's a reasonable way of arguing out and resolving differences."
During the review, the committee plans to speak to officials from the Ministry of Justice and the islands, but will also accept written submissions before midday on 10 May 2013.

"The Church Shaping Up For A Win For Abuse Victims"


Seconds Out - Round 2


Dean investigation moves forward



The Bish-op Bash Bosh of Winchester

The investigation into Jersey's suspended Dean has today moved a step forward. 

The Bishop of Winchester has published the terms of reference of an inquiry into the procedures surrounding the way Reverend Bob Key dealt with an abuse claim. 

The inquiry is being led by the former Bishop of Chelmsford the Right Reverend John Galdwin. 

The Anglican Church say their priority is the safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults. 

The Right Reverend Tim Dakin Bishop of Winchester said "This announcement marks an important step in the process of ensuring that the Churches safeguarding policies are such that we are able to protect the most vulnerable. Our prayers are with all involved particularly the vulnerable woman at the heart this case. This inquiry will allow lessons to be learned for the future and I look forward to receiving its findings."


TOR's are a 'Key' blow for Jersey

Here are the full Terms of Reference

The Bishop of Winchester hereby:

1. Appoints as his Commissary for Visitation of the Parishes of the Deanery of Jersey the Right Reverend John Gladwin.

2. Directs that during the period of the Visitation, all issues relating to or affecting Safeguarding within the Parishes of the Deanery of Jersey shall be dealt with solely as directed by the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser and the Diocesan Safeguarding Panel, and by no other.

3. Mandates that the Visitation shall be limited in its scope to:

a. Clarifying and describing the legal, ecclesiastical and practical nature of the relationship between the Deanery of Jersey, the Diocese of Winchester and the wider Church of England.

b. Examining progress made in implementation of and actions taken in accordance with the Diocesan Safeguarding provisions.

c. Considering the results of the investigation set up in response to the Korris Review and making recommendations for the Deanery, Diocese and the wider Church of England in response to it;

d. Making such further recommendations as may appear necessary and expedient. 

4. Directs that the Visitation shall commence with immediate effect.

"Pathetic & Weak Dean Of Jersey - Whining Like A Bitch" LOL :)


Suspension takes toll on Dean





Embarrassment! The (not so) Reverend, Bob Key



The Dean of Jersey is suffering from stress after being suspended following the way he handled an abuse claim. 
Reverend Bob Key has been prevented from carrying out his usual tasks as Dean . 

But he says he is not hiding away but has been signed off from all work duties by a doctor. 

He says he will be attending St Mark's Church for Easter celebrations.

Meanwhile, Jersey's Anglican Church leaders are consulting lawyers.

And Tim Dakin, the Bishop of Winchester is investigating the suspension.
The independent report concluded Mr Key had failed to properly investigate the allegations made by the woman - described as a 26-year-old vulnerable adult.

Jersey comes under the Diocese of Winchester which has clear safeguarding procedures on what to do when allegations of abuse are made against a church worker.

The report found that the procedures had not been followed.

"You Just Couldn't Make This Shit Up!!!"

It's A Great Place To Live!


JERSEY residents feel safer than most, earn more money and have a higher number of friends they can rely on, according to a report based on a global study.
The Better Life Index, which measures a society’s well-being, also said a very high proportion of Jersey residents are in good or better health than most and have a larger average amount of living space.
However, it revealed that a significant chunk of residents find it difficult paying for housing, the Island has a poor air quality and Jersey’s voter turnout is among the lowest.

"World Wildlife Fund Scam & The New World Order"

"Islanders See The Light
With
Hour Of Darkness"

We Sheeple Will Believe Anything!

World Wildlife Fund, Jersey, & The New World Order.

THE lights will be switched off at Mont Orgueil and Elizabeth castles tonight for 60 minutes to mark the world-wide Earth Hour campaign.
Also in the dark for that period from 8.30 pm will be the Fort Regent dome and Victoria Avenue promenade.
As part of this major campaign, Islanders are being urged to unite with millions of people across the globe by switching off the lights in their home.
Organised by the World Wildlife Fund, the event is being held between 8.30 pm and 9.30 pm

"If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth
as a killer virus to lower human population levels
."

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,
patron of the World Wildlife Fund


"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound
reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world
has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both
governments and individuals and an unprecedented
redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift
will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences
of every human action be integrated into individual and
collective decision-making at every level.
" 

United Nations - Agenda 21


Please see the foot of the page linked below for many links to these topics.

"The World Wildlife Fund Scam"
Would you be surprised if we told you the World Wildlife Fund isn’t really about wildlife? Or that national parks aren’t really about conservation of nature? Would you be shocked if we told you the whole “wildlife preservation” scheme is really just a scam to make a few elite investors rich? Conservation schemes are not about preserving resources for future generations, they are about preserving resources for an elite group of global criminals.
Measure your ignorance and naivete by learning about the global criminals who control vast tracts of land, locking up natural resources for their exclusive use and mistreating native peoples.
Note the left-wing bias in this post. We are not saying the information is wrong, we are saying that global Communism is not superior to global fascism.
While we’re at it:
What the British Royal Society is up to: global depopulation. The ultimate aim of environmentalism is global depopulation. Nasty people. Right at the heart of the “scientific authority.”
Yes, you think you are following “scientific authorities.” Sorry, they are crooks and liars. You got fooled by science.
Why nanotechnology is dangerous to your health. But Big Brother loves it. Those “scientific authorities” you worship aren’t really looking out for you, they are looking out for themselves and conning you.
Why carbon-trading schemes are fronts for organized crime. Everything at the top of the global pyramid is organized crime now, and there isn’t any significant difference between those posing as “conservative” and those posing as socialists.
None of the global elite care anything about the people of the world. They think you are cattle to be herded. Actually, they want to eliminate you so they can have a nicer planet for themselves to control. Why are you following them?


"The Georgia Guidestones"


In 2000, Dr. Reagan R. Davis, a Christian minister, visited the stones and concluded that the Guidestones may well describe the ten commandments of the Antichrist. Particularly upsetting were the precepts to "Maintain humanity under 500 million in perpetual balance with nature," "Guide reproduction wisely encouraging fitness and diversity," and "Let all nations rule internally, resolving external disputes in a world court." Davis interpreted these messages as a call for a world government, a policy of state-sponsored eugenics, and the culling of billions of people. This new interpretation elevated the Guidestones from mere local curiosity to the subject of national notoriety among conspiracy theorists and Christian dispensationalists.



"The Green Agenda"
We should all want to be wise and careful stewards of the beautiful planet we call home. But most of us realise that humans in general are not being good stewards. We are wasteful with our natural resources and have reduced biodiversity. Therefore, when we read about groups and organisations calling for a 'green revolution' and a new relationship between humanity and nature it is easy to agree with their ideas. 


However, certain aspects of the modern green movement that is permeating every segment of our society are not about protecting the environment. You don’t have to dig very deep to discover the true beliefs of the influential leaders who are using genuine concerns about the environment to promote an agenda of fear and control. Please carefully consider the implications of the opinions that they so openly and freely express:

"Climate change is real. Not only is it real, it's here,
and its effects are giving rise to a frighteningly new
global phenomenon: the man-made natural disaster.

Barack Obama,
US President

"We simply must do everything we can in our power to
slow down global warming before it is too late

Failure to act to now would be deeply and unforgivably irresponsible.
We urgently require a global environmental revolution

"We are close to a time when all of humankind
will envision a global agenda that encompasses
a kind of Global Marshall Plan to address the
causes of poverty and suffering and
environmental destruction all over the earth.
"
Al Gore,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"
In Nature organic growth proceeds according
to a Master Plan, a Blueprint. Such a ‘master plan’ is
missing from the process of growth and development of
the world system. Now is the time to draw up a master plan for
sustainable growth and world development based on global
allocation of all resources and a new global economic system.
Ten or twenty years form today it will probably be too late."

Club of Rome,
Mankind at the Turning Point

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"We need a new paradigm of development in
which the environment will be a priority.
World civilization as we know it will soon end.
We have very little time and we must act.
If we can address the environmental problem,
it will have to be done within a new system, a
new paradigm. We have to change our mindset,
the way humankind views the world.
"
Mikhail Gorbachev,
founder of Green Cross International

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable,
indeed a sacred principle of international relations.
It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to
the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.
"
UN Commission on Global Governance report

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and
it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely.
Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well
suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature
of many of today’s problems do not always allow elected
representatives to make competent decisions at the right time.
"
Club of Rome,
The First Global Revolution

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"The emerging 'environmentalization' of our civilization
and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global
community will inevitably have multiple political consequences.
Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change
in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must
assume some aspects of a world government.
"
Mikhail Gorbachev,
State of the World Forum

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"I envisage the pinnacles of the Earth Charter to
be a new form of the ten commandments.
They lay the foundation for a sustainable
global earth community.
"
Mikhail Gorbachev,
co-author of The Earth Charter

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"In my view, after fifty years of service in the United Nations system,
I perceive the utmost urgency and absolute necessity for proper
Earth government. There is no shadow of a doubt that the present
political and economic systems are no longer appropriate
and will lead to the end of life evolution on this planet.
We must therefore absolutely and urgently look for new ways."

Dr Robert Muller,
UN Assistant Secretary General,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Nations are in effect ceding portions of their sovereignty
to the international community and beginning to create a
new system of international environmental governance
as a means of solving otherwise unmanageable crises

"Regionalism must precede globalism.
We foresee a seamless system of governance from
local communities, individual states, regional unions

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"A keen and anxious awareness is evolving to suggest that
fundamental changes will have to take place in the world order
and its power structures, in the distribution of wealth and income.
Perhaps only a new and enlightened humanism
can permit mankind to negotiate this transition.

Club of Rome,
Mankind at the Turning Point

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"The alternative to the existing world order can only
emerge as a result of a new human dimension of progress.
We envision a revolution of the mind, a new way of thinking.
"
Mikhail Gorbachev,
State of the World Forum

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"We require a central organizing principle - one agreed to voluntarily.
Minor shifts in policy, moderate improvement in laws and regulations,
rhetoric offered in lieu of genuine change - these are all forms of
appeasement, designed to satisfy the public’s desire to believe that
sacrifice, struggle and a wrenching transformation
of society will not be necessary
."
Al Gore,
Earth in the Balance


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



"Adopting a central organizing principle...
means embarking on an all-out effort to use every
policy and program, every law and institution...
to halt the destruction of the environment.
"
Al Gore,
Earth in the Balance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound
reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world
has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both
governments and individuals and an unprecedented
redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift
will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences
of every human action be integrated into individual and
collective decision-making at every level.
"
UN Agenda 21

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


"The current course of development is thus clearly unsustainable.
Current problems cannot be solved by piecemeal measures.
More of the same is not enough. Radical change from the
current trajectory is not an option, but an absolute necessity.
Fundamental economic, social and cultural changes that
address the root causes of poverty and environmental
degradation are required and they are required now.

"The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another

"The spirit of our planet is stirring!
The Consciousness of Goddess Earth
is now rising against all odds,
in spite of millennia of suppression,
repression and oppression inflicted on Her
by a hubristic and misguided humanity.

The Earth is a living entity, a biological organism
with psychic and spiritual dimensions.
With the expansion of the patriarchal religions
that focused on a male God majestically
stationed in Heaven ruling over the Earth and the
Universe, the memory of our planet's innate Divinity
was repressed and banished into the
collective unconscious of humanity.
"
Envision Earth

"
Still more important is the implication that the evolution of
homo sapiens, with his technological inventiveness and his
increasingly subtle communications network, has vastly increased
Gaia's range of perception. She is now through us awake and aware
of herself. She has seen the reflection of her fair face through the
eyes of astronauts and the television cameras of orbiting spacecraft.

Our sensations of wonder and pleasure, our capacity
for conscious thought and speculation, our restless curiosity and
drive are hers to share. This new interrelationship of Gaia with man
is by no means fully established; we are not yet a truly collective
species, corralled and tamed as an integral part of the biosphere,
as we are as individual creatures. It may be that the destiny of
mankind is to become tamed, so that the fierce, destructive, and
greedy forces of tribalism and nationalism are fused into a
compulsive urge to belong to the commonwealth of all
creatures which constitutes Gaia.

"Little by little a planetary prayer book is
thus being composed by an increasingly united
humanity seeking its oneness
Once again,
but this time on a universal scale, humankind is
seeking no less than its reunion with 'divine,'
its transcendence into higher forms of life. Hindus
call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly
see no difference between our earth and the divine.
This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon
humanity, as we are about to enter our cosmic age
and become what we were always meant to be:
the planet of god

Robert Muller,

"What if Mary is another name for Gaia? Then her capacity for
virgin birth is no miracle . . . it is a role of Gaia since life began . . .

she gave birth to humankind and we are part of her
