Du Plessis Orphans, Site

Du Plessis Orphanage and abuse of orphans,

Rod has opened a website explaining the situation in Canada and the experiences in the Du Plessis Orphanages throughout Canada (1932 – 1986).  Please read this site.  It helps to explain the larger picture concerning this illegal experimentation and other “bad acts”.

For the site on the article on “Black Market Jewish Babies and the Catholic Nuns” please go to the end of the page.

MKUltra experimentation.

We have received this article from Rod, a Canadian member. It has just recently been published, in AMI, an Israeli magazine by investigative reporter, Miriam Samsonowitz. This an expose that began in the original MKUltra time frame. It illuminates MKUltra abuses and experimentation abuses at the Du Plessis Orphanages in Canada. It is very pertinent to our issues and goals.

It clearly shows how human greed and secrecy can lead to horrific abuses, in these instances, of children, both here in Canada and in other nations. We urge survivors to read the entire expose.

Reference: Duplessis orphans abuses

Dear CCLA Staff and Members:

My name is Lynn Bowne Weed. I am a paralegal and Co-Director of Kelb, “Keep The Ethical Light Burning“, a non-profit organization based in New York City, U.S. I am writing on behalf of Mr. Rod Vienneau and the group he advocates for, Duplessis orphans. They are in the process of presenting a case to the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights. It concerns the abuses, which occurred when the orphans were transferred to psychiatric hospitals with false diagnoses to enable the illegal experimentation (approximately 1946- 1986).

Our organization advocates for survivors of non-consensual experimentation and abuse, often at the hands of government agencies and third party contractors. We support the issue of non-consensual experimentation, performed on Duplessis orphans, across the nation of Canada, as one such abuse. We believe this is as violative of human rights and international law, as the U.S. Tuskegee experimentation, radiation experimentation and MK-Ultra experimentation, in the United States. MK-Ultra experimentation did apparently occur, in these institutions, across Canada.

The survivors and their advocates are seeking support from your human rights organization, CCLA, as they try to move forward. These children (now adults) were severely abused (both psychologically and physically) in the psychiatric hospitals they were illegally moved to and warehoused in. The support of CCLA on these extreme and abusive denials of human rights is sorely sought and needed. They need advocacy and to to be made whole, after so many years. They need to be able to “close the door”, on this unfortunate chapter of their lives and world history.

Human rights violations need to be examined in the light of day (as opposed to the closed wards of the psychiatric institutions, all those years ago, where these infants and young children were unable to “call out“). These children, who are now adults need the advocacy and support of your professionals, as they bravely seek the justice and human rights, denied to them.

“Human and civil rights” are concepts written into State and International law. They intertwine and extend to the world’s public interest. They appear in the tenets of the International Declaration of Human Rights.

These concepts reinforce the Nuremberg Code, as an operative norm of legal justice. The legal norm we emphasize on this issue, is in the Nuremberg Code, and is the statement that “no human experimentation shall occur without the informed consent of the human subject.”

This norm of practice was severely violated with infants and children, motherless and fatherless and incapable of any kind of “consent”, in the institutions they were transferred to, during these years, by doctors and staff. Experimental brain implants were placed into the skulls of some of these vulnerable children, by cutting into their brains. If the child did not survive, he/she was buried, to the closed, unknowing eyes of the outside world. These are extreme violations of law and clearly, of human rights.

Along with the Nuremberg Code, “norm of practice”, Contestabile defines: “If we disregard aspects (of activity) which are not relevant for sentient beings, then the value of the world corresponds to the aggregated (and weighed) welfare of its inhabitants.” 1

Rights theorists demand that tenets of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (including the directive against torture) are honored. By assigning priority to human rights they become a side constraint for every theory that seeks a quantitative optimization of the state of affairs. 2. We believe we cannot accept any concept that it is acceptable to hurt a small innocent group for the greater good or benefit of the larger group, “society“, for medical testing, or any other non-consensual testing outcomes. These are bedrock tenants of law and humanistic philosophy, that we believe make adjudication, for this case imperative.

For adult survivors, these memories survive and often haunt. As one who works with survivors of this traumatic experimental abuse, every week, I can say, that these memories are not easily dissipated. They can last and influence a lifetime. Advocacy and support from a civil rights’ agency, who “know the ropes” in these types of abuses, and can advise, is vital to their progress.

We believe it is necessary to give these courageous survivors, their “day in court” and let them experience the justice, courts and our systems of law are capable of providing, so that they can continue their lives, families and work, in peace.

Would you reply to me, about our concerns, at your earliest possible convenience?

Thank you for your kind attentions to our letter and issue.

Very sincerely,

Dear Mr. Onojima:

My name is Lynn Bowne Weed.  I am a paralegal and Co-Director of Kelb, “Keep The Ethical Light Burning“, a non-profit organization based in New York City, U.S.  I am writing on behalf of Mr. Rod Vienneau and Mr. Jonathan Levy, Esq.,  and the case they  have presented, in your jurisdiction, concerning the Canadian Du Plessis Orphanage abuses, which occurred from approximately 1946- 1986.

Our organization advocates for survivors of non-consensual experimentation and abuse, often  at the hands of government agencies and third party contractors.  We support the issue of the Du Plessis Orphanage non-consensual experimentation, across the nation of Canada as one such abuse.  We believe this is as violative of international law, as the U.S. Tuskegee experimentation, radiation experimentation and MK-Ultra experimentation, in the United States.  Actually MK-Ultra experimentation did apparently occur, in these orphanages.

The Du Plessis Orphanage case is currently before you (letter of receipt, January 21, 2011) and we are seeking both a status update and a request that you consider and hear this case, at your earliest convenience.  These children (now adults) were severely abused (both psychologically and physically) in these orphanages (operated by the Catholic Church, “Sisters of Mercy”) and need legal justice and to be made whole, after so many years.  They need to be able to “close the door”, on this unfortunate chapter of their lives and world history.

We believe this is important, both for the well being of the survivors and for the concept of justice, this extends in the world public interest.  It also again, reinforces the Nuremberg Code as an operative norm of  justice, which is vital as we move forwards.  The legal norm we emphasize on this issue, is in the Nuremberg Code, and is the statement that “no human experimentation shall occur without the informed consent of the human subject.”

This norm of practice was severely violated with infants and children, motherless and fatherless and incapable of any kind of  “consent”,  in the Du Plessis Orphanages, during these years, by doctors and staff.  Experimental brain implants were placed into the skulls of some of these vulnerable children, by cutting into their brains.  If the child did not survive, he/she was buried in back of the orphanage, to the closed, unknowing eyes of the outside world.

Along with the Nuremberg Code, “norm of  practice”,  Contestabile defines: “If we disregard aspects which are not relevant for sentient beings, then the value of the world corresponds to the aggregated (and weighed) welfare of its inhabitants.” 1

Rights theorists demand that tenents of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (including the directive against torture) are honored. By assigning priority to human rights they become a side constraint for every theory that seeks a quantitative optimization of the state of affairs. 2.  We believe we cannot accept any concept that it is acceptable to hurt a small innocent group for the greater good or benefit of the larger group, society, for medical testing, or any other non-consensual testing outcomes.  These are bedrock tenants of law and humanistic philosophy, that we believe make adjudication, for this case imperative.

For adult survivors, these memories survive and often haunt.  As one who works with  survivors of this traumatic experimental abuse, every week, I can say, that these memories are not easily dissipated.  They can last and influence a lifetime.

We believe it is necessary to give these courageous survivors, their “day in court” and let them experience the justice, courts are capable of providing, so that they can continue their lives, families and work, in peace.

We ask that you inform their lawyer, Mr. Jonathan Levy, U.S., of the status of their case and we ask that you make hearing their case, a priority.

Would you reply to me, about our concerns, at your earliest possible convenience?  Thank you for your kind attentions to our letter and issue.

Very sincerely,
