WiFri Protester Referred for Psychiatric Assessment
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I am contacting you today to inform you of a situation with possible profound repercussions for anyone protesting the use of microwave technology in the classroom.
Mr. Stephen Clarke, a native of Belfast now living in the Republic is in the middle of a custody battle with his former wife who is also living ing Northern Ireland. At present she has custody of their children. In May during a hearing a judge ruled that the matter of custody be continued until the end of the school year. The judge said that the custody hearing was not the time or place to discuss microwave radiation.
Mr. Clarke does not want his children exposed to wireless technology in the classroom.
In an effort to have his concerns heard he climbed the sculpture called "Rise" (see below) in Belfast with a white flag. He was subsequently arrested. It was his contention he could air his concerns before a judge - any judge. Instead he was referred for psychiatric assessment and held in the Mater Hospital, Belfast for psychiatric assessment against his will for seven days. That seven days has been extended indefinitely.
When his cell phone credit runs out he will be incommunicado.
The point of bringing this unfortunate turn of events to your attention is that whatever way Mr. Clarke's circumstances evolve, his referral for psychiatric assessment could set a world-wide precedent for anyone concerned about the dangers of microwave radiation. (Already in Ireland, sufferers are given prescription medication or referred for psychiatric assessment by order of health boards.)
This is a serious matter and deserves our consideration. Mr. Clarke can be contacted at:
