DuPlessis Orphans Demand Legal Inquiry
and Long Awaited Justice

3 february 2014
Object:Demanding a Royal Independant Inquiry into the Duplessis orphans case

Madam Pillay,
The Commission for Victims of Crimes against Humanity in the Duplessis Orphans case, wrote you a letter dated the 25 December 2013, we haven’t recieve any acknowledgement from the United Nations Human Rights Council, nor from yourself madam Pillay, having said this, Duplessis orphan Paul St Aubin, a native indian from the Wôlinak Reserve near Three Rivers Quebec, Canada, came to see me asking that i write a letter to the Minister of Justice of Quebec Bertrand St Arnaud. Paul St Aubin’s letter was sent by Canada Post this morning, i’m sending you a copy of his testimony, also to the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper will recieve his copy with this email, the media, and to Attorney Jonathan Levy Washington DC. Paul St Aubin was placed by a government institution to work slave labor on a farm for a period of six years, he was only 11 years old at the time, then, a Quebec Court sent Paul St Aubin to a Psychiatric Hospital and forgotten by the State for 18 years, governments & UN Officials must read his letter. We also recieved this ruling which came to our attention a few days ago, proving how children were targeted by different countries such as Ireland ; Canada ; United States ; who performed unauthorized medical experiments on children who should have been protected, Canada and the Province of Quebec both signed the International Declaration on Human Rights 1945, the other 1948, neither one of these governments protected the thousands of Duplessis orphans who were tortured and murdered, experiments ranging from lobotomies, electroshocks, Mkultra, beaten & whipped and imprisonment from months to years and falsely labeled mentally retarded. We are demanding a Royal Independant Inquiry into the Duplessis orphans case.

The victims need to recieve a positive acknowledgement from the United Nations Human Rights Council, we must say Bravo to this ruling in Ireland, the Duplessis orphans must obtain Justice.

European Union Ct Ruling Precedent

Rod V. (Canada/activist) has just sent this important ruling from the European Union concerning church and state child abuse liability. Both have liability according to this high court. An especially important ruling for MKUltra abuse survivors. Please read this very important New York Times article.

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/01/opinion/ireland-and-child-abuse.html?emc=eta1
“… The human rights ruling put the issue in a more responsible and just context. It presumably opens the government to hundreds more liability claims in Ireland, and possibly even in other nations where church and state allowed sexual abuse in schools to go unpunished. …”

It sets a legal precedent for both church and state to be held legally liable for child abuse and molestation. Yes, it is very pertinent to abuses at the DuPlessis Orphanages and MKUltra abuses in general. This is a very, very positive ruling that can be used with the Canadian and American abuses. So very glad they made this ruling in Ireland. Thank you for sending. Really good news, Rod. Glad.

Vets’ Press Article

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Please Contact: Lynn Weed,
Test Vets Win Medical Care and “Notice”
by Lynn Weed
November 19, 2013 California

U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken (CA), today issued an injunction in the case of Vietnam Veterans of America, et al. v. CIA, et al., directing that the Army inform this national class of veteran test subjects, of the details and health effects of experiments performed on them while, they served as active duty military. These vets, from across the country * sued based on tests performed on them, at the Edgewood Arsenal base in Maryland, using allegedly more than 400 different chemical and biological substances. The tests occurred over a span of more than fifty years (1938 – 86) and involved tens of thousands of active duty military. The substances these veterans were tested with, ranged from drugs or chemicals (sarin, LSD, BZ, mustard gas and a THC analog called “red oil”) to biological weapon agents such as tulaaremia and Q-Fever.

Judge Claudia Wilken granted summary judgment that the Army has “an ongoing duty to warn members of the class about newly acquired information that may affect their well-being now and in the future as it becomes available,” and enjoined the Army to inform veterans about the nature, duration and possible health effects of the biological or chemical experiments. The Army is required to provide the court with a plan for notifying veterans about the experiments, within 90 days. The court also found that Army Regulation 70-25 “entitles Plaintiffs to medical care for any disabilities, injuries or illnesses suffered. Through this ruling, the vets can get the medical coverage needed for their illnesses and disabilities suffered.

While these are important claims decided for the plaintiff veterans, their initial claims also sought resolution on other issues, including medical care from the Army, itself, instead of the Veterans Administration. This reflects a general belief among enlisted people that the Army provides better medical care than the Veterans Administration. The vets have appealed this Summary Judgment Order, seeking their additional claims to be reassessed by the Appellate Court.

Surviving vets deal with post-traumatic stress disorder, and a variety of other diseases or disabling ailments, associated with the test substances.

The Nuremberg Code, the Wilson Directive and 45 C.F.R. 46 prohibit against human experimentation without the informed consent of the human subject. No medical facility, doctor, contractor or military person may experiment on humans without their informed consent.

The first Appellate date for the vets is Wednesday, December 4, 2013 when mediative forms will be due.

The Philadelphia Inquirer exposed similar military intelligence experiments performed on Holmesburg Prison inmates in PA, during the same years. These “Experimentation Survivors” were exposed to and tested with similar substances as the Vets. Pharmaceutical companies such as Johnson and Johnson and others made millions on the test results, while these prisoners were often paid “a dollar a day”, for using their bodies for experimentation. They now suffer the same or similar, disabling diseases and illnesses as the vets. Author Allen Hornblum wrote about these human “experiments” in his best selling book, Acres of Skin.

Wash. D.C. Rally

Lynn Weed 001

D.C. Rally

Kelb Attends D.C. Rally with Restore the 4th, ACLU,Stop Watching Us and so many others

10/26/13 Washington, D.C.
The D.C. Rally was very successful, as far as we could see. There were about three thousand people (+) in attendance. Long blue silk like signs, high up in the air, joined the shorter hand held signs.

Our message was clear and the crowd was enthusiastic and intent. “Stop Watching Us !” was the message. Simple, sincere and “there”. Supporting organizations were: Stop Watching Us, Electronic Freedom Frontier, Restore the Fourth, Kelb, Inc., Partnership for Civil Justice Fund(PCJF), Thank You Ed Snowden.org,, and many others.

PCJF explained the core message well. They have :
“exposed domestic spying operations including thousands of pages of documents revealing how the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies used their “anti-terrorism” authority and funding to spy on and suppress peaceful protest movements in the United States; uncovered the implementation of a mass surveillance grid; and engaged in other litigation and government transparency work in defense of free speech, civil rights, and civil liberties.”

The group, “Restore the Fourth” explained the nationwide significance of the event: “. . . Hundreds of thousands of people have spoken out since the major NSA leaks began this June. More than 560,000 people took action at StopWatching.Us by signing our petition to the U.S. Congress. Dozens of members of Congress have introduced bills aimed at reining in the NSA, and hundreds of organizations and companies are uniting to end the NSA’s unconstitutional surveillance.. . .” (see link below:”Restore the Fourth”)
The petition is calling on Congress to take immediate action to put an end to the surveillance and “provide a full public accounting of the NSA’s and the FBI’s data collection programs.” Over 500,000 people have thus far added their signatures.
The rally comes at a crucial moment, on the 12th anniversary of the signing of the Patriot Act and as the Senate Intelligence Committee plans to take up legislation to revise the NSA’s spying authority.

“The American patriots participating in this protest understand the fundamental truth […]. . .” (See link below, Intellihub)

The “ThankYouEdSnowden” site well describes an important aspect of this problem:
“ The American people oppose the surveillance state, but have never had a say or a vote on it. The people have not given their consent to the government’s mass dragnet operation to collect, store and analyze their emails and their telephone calls. . . “
Kelb is in absolute agreement. We marched, carried signs and we applaud the efforts of PCJF , the EFF, Restore the Fourth and the ThankYouEdward Snowden, Mega groups and all groups involved in this vital work. The speakers also well articulated the problem and exhorted action.

Jesselyn Radack, a former Justice Department ethics advisor who is now a director with the Government Accountability Project, read a statement from Snowden to the crowd.
“This isn’t about red or blue party lines, and it definitely isn’t about lines, and it definitely isn’t about terrorism,” Snowden wrote. “It’s about being able to live in a free and open society.” He also noted that “elections are coming up, and we are watching you”. Members of Congress and government officials, he said, were supposed to be “public servants, not private investigators”.

As Ms Radack explained (paraphrasing) America now has the power and capability to put an electronic fence around the United States and any people it wants to. She explained, “they” are on your phone, on your computer, they know your most private thoughts. . . .”
Her advice ? : “Do nothing and this will continue to happen.” . . . Very rousing, and impressive. Points extremely well made.

Gary Johnson, 2012 Libertarian Party Candidate for President and Thomas Drake, former NSA whistleblower, and the legal representative for the ACLU, Shahid Bhutar and others spoke. They explained the capabilities these new technologies present. Gary Johnson explained that the fourth amendment was written to prevent unnecessary search and seizure, as Americans, as colonists, had suffered under the English soldiers. Very emotional and moving speech.
Thomas Drake, described the treachery some American agencies exhibit, when whistleblowers, such as himself and Edward Snowden reveal these atrocities. He caution against, “”acid turned up by the potent brew of secrecy and surveillance”.

He says he has been lucky, but many have been crushed under, by these agencies. Again a very moving speech and his warnings heard.

A very eloquent and powerful woman lawyer/speaker, representing the ACLU, on Saturday, explained that there is a new bill that only needs seven votes for passage. She explained the legal tenets that were being violated and spoke of the ACLU long and historical work on this major issue.

“Please call your senators and congress people.” she exhorted the listening and chanting crowd. “Tell them to vote for this bill: “USA Freedom Act “(Spying reform), by Michelle Richardson, Legislative Counsel, ACLU, Washington Legislative Office. Kelb supports this effort and we also, urge all members to call and urge your legislature to vote for passage of “USA Freedom Act.”

Shahid Buthar made a very logical and impassioned speech about the illegal abuses innocent Americans have suffered at the hands of the NSA and intelligence agencies.
One of the most “telling” comments made by those speaking, I thought, came from the Emcee. He said, “you think when you turn your cell phone “off”, it is “off”. You think when you turn your computer “off”, you have turned it “off”. You have not. “They” may well still be there, – our devices are actually “on” (in spite of our free choice to “turn them off”) and “they – NSA , etc.” are listening. “

I was thinking, “he is right”. We really aren’t making those choices. Due to the situation, “they” turn our devices “on and off”. Without our knowledge and consent. This is our country. Our Country. !

Please choose one of these amazing and very pertinent links.  Chose one, two or many.  They all tell the story, our story that for so long, we have been presenting.

Public Enquiry Needed/Duplessis Survivors

We worked with Rod V. in Quebec to prepare this letter and strongly urged request for a public inquiry into the MKUltra abuses and other abhorrent abuses, that occurred in these orphanages (1930′s – 1960′s +). Please view this letter on our mutual and vital concerns. We will get there.
Kelb, Board, Members, Writers, Editors

Re: DuPlessis Orphans, of the DuPlessis Orphanages,
of the Catholic Church: “Decree”

Dear Ministre de la Justice du Quebec, Monsieur Bertrand St. Arnaud:

Our organization, Kelb, Keep The Ethical Light Burning, Inc., has become aware of “The Duplessis Orphans Committee and the Programme Nationale de Reconciliation avec Les Orphelins de DuPlessis signed Decree # 1153-2001”, concerning the plight of the DuPlessis Orphans and other orphans placed into the care of the Catholic Church in Quebec (1930′ – 60′s +). Our organization deals with non-consensual experimentation, it’s abuses and some of the programs, which occurred both in Canada and the U.S., during the above named years.

From the “Quebec Ombudsman’s Report” of 1997, in which Ombudsman Daniel Jacoby produced an official report, in which the Orphans’ complaints were documented. He found evidence of such abuses as psychosurgery, electroshock, ice baths, beatings, straitjacketing, torture, sodomy and “unjustified confinement to a cell — sometimes for months or even years.”However, the Quebec attorney general announced in February 1995 that no charges would be brought. Mr. Jacoby stated, in reponse, “In almost all cases, the reasons invoked by the attorney general did nothing to deny the existence of the facts. Neither the statute of limitations nor the death of a suspect or complainant threw the alleged acts into question.”

And similarly, Dr. Hubert Wallot, a psychiatrist at the Saint Michel Archange psychiatric hospital at Beauport, (near Quebec City) found enough information to support the orphans’ case in his 1979 biography. When “Actualite-Medicale” reporter Michel Dongois asked about the Duplessis Orphans Dr. Wallot said, he supported the Orphans’ cause, and felt that a public inquiry was necessary.
Wallot wrote: “In 1948, two hospital workers tending for the sick patients ordered a young patient to wash the floor. The young boy refused, the two hospital workers killed the young boy.” This is in Dr. Hubert Wallot’s book, “La Danse autour du fou”, page 109).

There is much law on the legal abuses, concerning these “experiments”. Experimentation without informed consent, is illegal, nationally and internationally. U.S. Case law on this, goes back at least as far as 1923, with a decision by then Justice Cardozo (NY), on the illegality of this kind of “experimentation”. The Nuremberg Code is an accepted norm of practice, in Canada, in the U.S. and internationally.

The Declaration for Children’s Rights, proclaimed by the General Assembly of The United Nations Organisation 20 November 1959, (resolution 1386(XIV) Considering the necessity of a special protection for children (from 1929 Geneva Declaration on Children’s Rights): and adopted in the Declaration of Human Rights – one principal reads:
Children must be protected from all forms of negligence, cruelty, and exploitation, and Black Market of babies (selling). Children must not be used for cheap labour that could jeopardize the children’s health, his or hers education, and put in danger his or hers physical development, mental and moral.

This law was clearly violated and abused with these young, vulnerable Duplessis and Huberdeau orphans, housed by the Catholic church, who had already suffered great loss. These heinous, egregious abuses, must be addressed, whenever their inception. And rightfully, there is no statute of limitations, for crimes as egregious, as these. We applaud the government of Quebec for its actions, its understanding of human rights, the Declaration of Human Rights and its intentions in its work on the “Decree” for these survivors of the orphanages.

However, certain very glaring problems have appeared, with many of the involved professionals and their work (and intentions) on this decree, which are causing great legal concern. The problems are glaring enough and causing such concern, that an independent public inquiry, seems the best method to both obtain justice for the survivors and keep the outcome free from the taint of corruption and conflicts of interests This would show Quebec’s strong interest in inquiries into criminal behaviour (especially concerning children) which are free from taint, corruption and conflicts of interests.

The surviving DuPlessis orphans feel that only an independent public inquiry can effectively deal with these abuses, and their now historic intertwining in the politics of state, church and intelligence community activities in those years. It seems almost impossible to separate the good honest public officials from those with some connection to the Catholic Church, either then or now. Any lawyer will tell you that that in this situation, a “conflict of interest” is created, with resulting, “justice denied.” We don’t want to work from that position. We need to close this horrific chapter in Canada’s, the U.S.’s and other countries’ histories, as we work for an appropriate justice for the survivors of these atrocities.

An independent public inquiry may be the only way to get at the truth and give the victims, the justice, reparations and being “made whole” that they so sorely deserve.

On the concerns and glaring problems: the first, is the position Bruno Roy held, in the processing of this Decree, as President of The Orphanage Committee, a prime member with influence and “final say”. In a 11/3/01 issue of La Presse, Roy stated publicly that he had a conflict of interest in the Orphans case; because he was once in the priesthood, himself with the Catholic order, Clercs Saint Viateur between 1964-1970 He had not disclosed this involvement and association to the Orphans and the public. The Clercs Saint Viateurs kept numerous Duplessis Orphans at the St. George Orphanage in Joliette, Quebec. The question is clearly raised and perhaps answered: “how Roy could be an impartial representative when it came to exposing actions of Catholic church personnel and in particular, this group.”

The dogmatism and intense training of priests in the Catholic Church is well-known, world wide. To push aside these beliefs, held since childhood (and through a form of torture, Bruno Roy, himself, must have been exposed to), and work as an impartial member of such an important outcome for the victims of these abuses, is not only difficult, in the legal sense, it seems necessarily a recusable “conflict of interest”. He should have recused himself, very early on. He did not and became a prime player in the outcome of this “Decree” for the victims. This seems a clear, problematic and disturbing “conflict of interest” in the interest of justice, for these abused children (now adults).

One member of the orphanage committee notes: “The Decree stated that about 1,200 psychiatric Orphans having the false label of mental illness were registered. In 1999, the government of Quebec, entrusted to Bruno Roy’s committee the task of determining who was considered a Duplessis Orphan. This was odd. As the government was the body that had locked up the Orphans, certainly they would have had records of those whom they locked up. Yet, Roy agreed to work with the government to determine who was an Orphan and who was not.
If Roy had pushed to force the government to produce the records of those whom they had locked up, (in the orphanages) he would have had written proof of the illegal incarceration and fraudulent psychiatric labeling of the children. Yet another example of failing to respond in a way that would have best made a case for the Orphans. . .” .

So, something as important as identifying members of the group, in the mediation, was not effectively accomplished. Similarly the exclusion of the Huberdeau orphans, also housed by the Catholic nuns, priests and church, seems another example of both flawed reasoning and “conflict of interest”. This is our second problematic point causing legal concern.

These children were similarly placed in orphanages run by the Catholic Church in the same years. They experienced the same abuse and illegal medical experimentation, through those programs, as those in the Catholic DuPlessis Orphanages.

By legal reasoning, two people burned by the same person, in law, have the same perpetrator. Their claims, by definition and similarity (which is never “identical”, as we are taught in law classes) can create a “class”. These same tenets needed to hold true for both of these groups of abused orphans. To separate them, had the effect of watering down and minimizing the very valid and actionable claims of the Duplessis orphans. Again, this decision and its advocacy were made by a former priest, acting in a position of authority, on an issue, which to him would be controversial, one would think. This seems most clearly a misuse of the legal process, possibly based on a very strong conflict of interest. This separation of similar groups, with the same claims, is in need of remediation

A third point, very worthy of legal consideration, is the fact that many of these now adult DuPlessis orphans did not have access to the same educational benefits, many non-orphans did, in those years (due to the abuses and lifestyles they suffered). Therefore, with little education, their understanding of the legal process, and how the wrongs done to them could be addressed, were minimal at best.

To borrow from the tenets from a very pertinent code, and accepted norm of practice on this issue: “The Nuremberg Code”, in which it is firmly stated, that those addressed for experimentation must, by law, have a full and personal understanding of what they are about to experience.
If this has not occurred, the experimentation is then illegal, and unauthorized.

As these rights (of understanding what was happening to them in the years of experimentation and abuse) were denied, to these young vulnerable children, they should not again to be denied to them, now, in their later work for justice.
They have a lower educational level than most Canadians, due to what they experienced. They should not be denied the full process of law, because they may not understand certain facets of the law. There was not full explanation to them at the time, of what they were agreeing to, with this initial “Decree”. This also, would seem to be a major impediment to the justice offered and promised, by the offer of this mediative “Decree”. We would allege that justice is not served, when those seeking it, do not understand – what they are agreeing to.

For these very important legal points, we would allege that this Decree is seriously flawed and there is a strong need to move on to a better vehicle for justice, an independent public inquiry.

An independent public inquiry seems the best vehicle to more accurately, and effectively give the justice, these abused children (who experienced a most heinous non-consensual experimentation) deserve. And of course, this “more just” justice, always works for the the public good, as a deterrent. And also at the very least, a it serves as a ‘warning’ on the dangers of experimentation. As our former President William Clinton, noted (concerning the U.S.’s illegal radiation experiments exposure) : (paraphrasing) the advance of science is fast and breathless, yet we always need to “Keep our ethical light burning.” (his quote).

We sincerely, steadfastly agree with former President Clinton’s admonition. We believe an independent public inquiry is very much in order. And internationally, we will applaud you on your insistence on justice for vulnerable citizens.

Thank you for your attention to this very important matter.

Very sincerely,

Kelb Members:

Kelb member, Nancy, (“Nancy” is a composite charactor, drawn from common experiences of MKUltra survivors) experiences fear, confusion and a sense of indeterminate dread, often. She has identified some of the sources of these reactions, in her adult life, but needs more help. She is one of the many (at least 36,000) Americans, who experienced MKUltra project testing, initiated by military psychiatrist, Sidney Gottlieb, in her childhood (1940’s – 1960’s). These “experiments” were an offshoot of McCarthyism: the “Red Scare”, which seemed to permeate many aspects of American life and intelligence agency efforts, in those years.

These “experiments” were performed on young American children. They seem a response to McCarthyism. Hoover and others, in those years, were suspicious that communist and insurgent communists, were using sophisticated infiltration techniques and employing invasive, persuasive psychological methods, to achieve their goals. These goals were considered antithetical to American ways of life. So, these military/intelligence “doctors” experimented on unwitting American children and tried to suppress their memories of these traumatic, and horrific tests.

These “tests” were identified in the Church Senate Committee Hearings (1974)and in the Radiation Experimentation Hearings. Nancy and many others want their memories back.

Our group, Kelb, Inc., “Keep The Ethical Light Burning”, is formed to deal with these issues; this unsolved American problem. Unethical experimentation was exposed in the Watergate scandal, and was a vital topic in subsequent Church Senate Subcommittee Hearings. In the ensuing years, it has not been dealt with, by any higher levels of government, or mil/intelligence agencies. We need help, to right the wrong and help the living survivors.

Our non-profit organization, Kelb is specifically concerned with is non-consensual or unauthorized human subject testing. We are especially concerned with programs and projects, which experimented on unwitting human subjects, including children (some as far back as 1938). These were the MKUltra projects of U.S. military/intelligence: Bluebird, Artichoke, Pandora, Chatter, and others, including the biological and chemical testing programs.

We have worked with survivors of the Holmsburg experimentation in Pennsylvania and we support and correspond with lawyers in the ongoing California lawsuit, concerning the non-consensual testing of military enlistees (years: 1942 – 1986: Case: Vietnam Veterans of America et al. v. CIA et al. CV 09-0037-CW,U.S.D.C. (N.D. Cal 2009)1.
Along with victim support and outreach, a long term goal is effective ethical and non-political oversight of the entire military intelligence community, as it currently exists. We want to put an end to the potential for recurrence of these heinous experiments.

It is illegal to experiment on anyone in this country without his or her informed consent. Forty five C.F.R. forty six clearly states that informed consent is a necessity. The Nuremberg Code established at the close of World War II, is the international legal standard for human experimentation. Violations of international law can be pleaded in the U.S. cases. The Wilson Directive (1953) is U.S. law clearly stating: human experimentation can occur only with the informed consent of the human subject. U.S. and international law is very clear.

Our mission is advocacy and support for victims of such as Nancy, and exposure of their plight. We also intend that survivor/victims we work with, be made “whole”.

One of the many memories Nancy is dealing with, begin with being taken to a church in the morning, as a child, in the south, in her teen years. She can remember very little of what happened in the church, on those days. She remembers leaving her home and later, going home. She has memories of the evening at home, but is finding it very difficult to recall anything that happened, during these times, in the church.

Another mysterious memory involves teenage trips to Fort Bragg, a military base, near where Nancy lives and grew up. Again, after spending the day on this military base, she can not remember what happened there. She remembers leaving and the night at home, but very little of the day. Therapists believe she may have been hypnotized and possibly drugged, to help suppress the memory. This may be very significant in dealing with, what was actually going on in her life.

We believe Nancy experienced MKUltra Project experimentation/testing.

This is common to our trauma survivors. It takes work to reveal these memories. Nancy spent her working life as a nurse and raising her daughter. She now lives with her sister and is parenting her daughter’s young son, while her daughter works. She is haunted by these memories and wants to further uncover and deal with them. She knows there is trauma, but reaching the actual events is proving difficult.

She is an active Kelb member and spends many days each week, generously giving her time, working on our issues. So much needs to be done. And most members are trauma survivors as Nancy is. Our common goals are to continue our lives, succeed in uncovering these memories and to work towards reparations, and being made “whole,” in spite of these common experiences of induced trauma. In researching this problem, many children were raped and tortured (Radiation Committee Testimonies, The CIA’s Search for the Manchurian Candidate, by John Marks). Hypnosis and drugs were used at the close of the “experimental” day, making it difficult for these “adults” to now remember, what happened during these times.

Many of our members are working with their private therapists, on these difficult, hurtful, life-impacting issues. We are looking for therapists to work with our group, group members and with our new members, who are just uncovering this abuse in their lives and looking for support. We welcome them, and we want to provide an adequate and helpful support system for them. This takes financial support. Our organization is a 501 (c) (3) non-p profit charity, incorporated in the state of Delaware and registered in New York State, as a charity.

Five dollars, ten dollars or a generous $100 donation will go a long way to helping Americans like, Nancy, who wants nothing more than to be made “whole”. She wants her memories back. Please work with us to help this group of Americans, who endured harmful experimentation, without their consent.

A group member/therapist, who has treated many MKUltra survivors in her career, speaks of one haunting MKUltra experimentation survivor. This woman had recalled times of being held in a cage for days and being raped. The therapist recounts years of therapy, working with this survivor, which seemed to be progressing positively. One day she got an horrific telephone call. The survivor had committed suicide. We work that this not happen.
We represent many like Nancy. Nat, a northeast member has memories of almost being kidnapped as a child. His dreams and subconscious tell him that there was more to this. He is working with these memories and knowledge. David, whose last dramatic words from his dying mother, revealed to him, that he too, was an experimentation survivor. Her last words were exhortations of love, encouragement and warning. We work with many more experimental survivors. Please visit our website, read our mission statement and our pages. Our issues lie in our memories. Please help us work and make our groups members, whole. Please donate to Nancy, Nat, David and Kelb, Inc.
