Science and the corporate interests

by Olli Tammilehto

An civilized person thinks usually that natural science is above politics. Especially men and women with a scientific education and rational world view believe that unlike social science natural science is independent of values and social goals.
However, ordinary people lacking the light of civilization are not willing to believe this. Its folk wisdom says: “He who pays the piper calls the tune.” And somebody is paying also for scientists, isn’t it?
But this kind of archaic wisdom does not apply to the modern science! Why would some quarters like to influence science? Isn’t it in everybody’s interest to know how things really are and allow the scientists to work in peace without outside pressure? However, it is crucial to remember that scientific research is not only general observation of micro and macro world and search for prevailing regularities. In practice it is commonly connected to industrial activities: on the one hand, research consist of refining old technologies and development of new technologies and products, on the other hand, sorting out the various effects of technologies, industries and products.

N. Ireland parent attempting to protect his children from Wi-Fi forcibly given psychotic drugs — #freeStephenClarke

Nina Beety in California has posted the following page to assist Stephen Clarke, the Leixlip, County Kildare man being held and treated with psychotropic drugs following his protest against exposing his children to microwave radiation in the classroom.

N. Ireland parent attempting to protect his children from Wi-Fi forcibly given psychotic drugs — #freeStephenClarke

International experts are increasingly warning about the impacts of wireless radiation exposure to all of us, especially children.
Stephen Clarke protested Wi-Fi in his children’s school in Northern Ireland. It was a peaceful protest to raise awareness to this issue.
For doing that, he was incarcerated at a psychiatric hospital in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and is being forcibly medicated. He has been held there for over 12 weeks (Sept.4 update below).
This is in complete violation of his civil rights and is a frightening suppression of peaceful protest and free speech by British authorities.
Please contact authorities at the addresses below and demand his release. Please post this to websites and distribute to your contacts, particularly regarding this denial of basic civil rights.
Stephen is being held at
Mater Hospital
45-54 Crumlin Road
Belfast BT14 6AB
Great Britain
Send cards and letters to him there, as well as letters of protest regarding his incarceration and forced medication.
He also has citizenship in Canada.

A Twitter campaign #FreeStephenClarke has been proposed.
Please do everything you can to help Stephen. More information is below.
Websites with information on Wi-Fi in schools and why Stephen is protesting:
For more information and a timeline of events:
Update September 4, 2014:
Many people have been visiting this site to learn about Stephen’s situation, particularly in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, as well as in Europe and the United States. Stephen says this has been very encouraging. But his medication has now been doubled to 10 mg.
It will take many actions to free Stephen and stop this from happening to others. Please write the officials and the hospital and demand his release. Contact information is below. Campaign with petitions and on social media.
With the many people in Ireland and the UK aware of this situation, a protest and/or candlelight vigil outside the Mater Hospital would raise the visibility.
An interview of John Weigel and Stephen (hopefully participating from Mater Hospital) will be broadcast from Ireland Saturday, September 6, 10 pm UT
And Deborah Tavares of will be interviewing John from California on Friday, September 5, 6 pm PDT. This will be broadcast on the Rense Radio Network
Any children with medical implants are particularly at risk from wireless radiation, including those with metal plates or rods. These metal implants, especially rods, turn those children into antennas for the radiation and create hotspots – one of the reasons Stephen is protesting.
The Netherland website Stop UTMS posted this alert on Stephen as well as information that two electrohypersensitive (EHS) people were incarcerated in a psychiatric ward in Netherlands. They were released after a few days due to protests, but this is frightening., What about those who do not have supporters?
EHS people represent a growing threat to the continued profits of the telecommunications industry, and with experts projecting that 50% of the population will be EHS by 2017, and that syndrome is a pre-Alzheimer’s state,
it is best to “hide the evidence”.
Update, August 26, 2014
From John Weigel:
I’ve just gotten off the phone with Stephen. Forced medication was re-commenced today. It took five men to hold Stephen Clarke down.
Both his consultant, Dr. Ann McDonnell. and his lawyer, Mr. Paul McCann, are away for a week.
In the interim, I have sent a letter to the six ministers responsible at the Home Office in London and a random list of source material regarding the dangers of microwave radiation.

I have also contacted the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission.
The legislation under which Mr. Clarke is being held is tenuous at best as is the European legislation.
The Northern Ireland Mental Health (NI) Order 1986 Article 4(2):
(2) An application for assessment may be made in respect of a patient on the grounds that –
(a)  he is suffering from mental disorder of a nature or degree which warrants his detention in a hospital for assessment (or for assessment followed by medical treatment); and
(b)  failure to so detain him would create a substantial likelihood of serious physical harm to himself or to other persons.
The issue is further addressed under Article 12:
12.  (1) Where, during the period for which a patient is detained for assessment by virtue of Article 9(8), he is examined by a medical practitioner appointed for the purposes of this Part by [F1RQIA] and that medical practitioner furnishes to the responsible[F2 authority] in the prescribed form a report of the examination stating –
(a)  that, in his opinion, the patient is suffering from mental illness or severe mental impairment of a nature or degree which warrants his detention in hospital for medical treatment; and
(c)  that, in his opinion, failure to so detain the patient would create a substantial likelihood of serious physical harm to himself or to other persons; and
(d)  such particulars as may be prescribed of the grounds for his opinion so far as it relates to the matters set out in sub-paragraph (a); and
(e)  the evidence for his opinion so far as it relates to the matters set out in sub-paragraph (b), specifying whether other methods of dealing with the patient are available and, if so, why they are not appropriate,
that report shall be[F2 sufficient authority for the responsible authority to detain the patient] in the hospital for medical treatment and the patient may, subject to the provisions of this Order, be so detained for a period not exceeding 6 months beginning with the date of admission, but shall not be so detained for any longer period unless the authority for his detention is renewed under Article 13
The European Convention on Human Rights 
The strict regulation of mental health detentions and the judicial oversight is required by Article 5 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects the right to liberty. Article 5 states that:
Everyone has the right to liberty and security of person. No one shall be deprived of his liberty save in the following cases and in accordance with a procedure prescribed by law: the lawful detention of persons for the prevention of the spreading of infectious diseases, of persons of unsound mind, alcoholics or drug addicts, or vagrants;
Thus Mr. Clarke is being held illegally based on the subjective observations of a judge – one who is spectacularly ill-informed or who is operating to an agenda.
When I told Mr. Clarke about your plan to conduct a Twitter campaign it lifted his spirits no end. Thank you.
It seems that this whole thing blew up as Mr. Clarke learned about the new reality we’re facing and his family and friends lost patience with his discoveries. He’s a canary in the coal mine in more ways than one.
Interestingly, an EHS sufferer in the Republic received support on this issue 10 years ago, she says, “I had lengthy meetings with Professor Brice Dickson at the same NIHRC office for a number of years in early noughties [early 2000s). AND, perhaps, the vast documentation I submitted to him on EHS and EMF health issues is still on file there.  He and his office were outstandingly valuable in their support of my case –essentially against the Irish Health Authorities for misdiagnosing me and my right to have a correct diagnosis  (i.e. EHS) .  In fact Brice was willing to include similar to this and EHS on his proposed Bill of Human Rights in N. Ireland. They were helping me put pressure on the Irish Human Rights authorities to take on my legal case. (It was turned down c. 2003.  I have a lot of this online , easily retrievable. May I suggest that someone should enquire if all the files I submitted to NIHRC and Brice Dickson are archived right there in their office. Stephen’s  lawyer might consider it helpful.

The background and information on Stephen Clarke below are in date order.

Here is Stephen’s statement prior to his forced medication.
June 16
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 in 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” (photo attached, 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:

Ladies & Gentlemen,
News from Stephen Clarke in the Mater Hospital psychiatric unit, Ward L, Belfast
Text from Stephen to a Friend:
Can you go to John’s house. Tell him the doctor here is not allowing me to go to the court tomorrow and they sound like they will be forcing medication on me from Thursday and to please somehow get in contact here and please to raise awareness. They refuse to listen to any reason. The lunatics are really running the asylum. May God protect me from the evil that surrounds me.
Late Tuesday evening Stephen Clarke said:
“Dr. Ann McDonell said I’m too unwell to go to court because I’m not taking my medication. Nobody who gets in here gets away without taking medication… She said it’s up to her. She said it’s her decision what goes on here.”
 Clarke was committed to the psychiatric unit by the Court for diagnostic purposes to enable the court to assess if he was capable of answer the charges relating to his protest against being denied access to his children. He was to appear in court Wednesday.
August 8
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Unlike most public demonstrators who are hauled before a judge and charged for misdemeanors and fined and released, Stephen Clarke, resident in the Republic of Ireland, was referred for psychiatric evaluation following his court appearance. His wife and children are now resident in Northern Ireland and he traveled north to make a protest against the exposure of his children to wi-fi in the classroom.
He is now to be force medicated following weeks of incarceration at the Mater Infirmorum in Belfast. On Friday afternoon, Clarke said, “I’ve got a tribunal coming and and I’m worried about them having me in a state through chemicals that have never been in my mind before. I’ve been here nine weeks and not one of the nurses, staff or doctors can say I’ve been aggressive or pose a threat to myself or others in any way. I’ve only spoken the truth – most of them agreed.”
Mr. Clarke’s solicitor is:
Paul McCann
Tel: 0044 04890 90238007
Mr. Clarke’s Psychiatric Consultant is:
Dr. Mc Donnell
Tel: 0044  04895 95047152
There is a distinct difference between evaluation and unsolicited medical treatment.
This in itself should raise public attention. Secondly, since when did belief in God become a questionable psychiatric condition?
Mr. Clarke’s circumstances are further complicated by the views of Dr. Simon Wessley, He is Professor of Psychological Medicine at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London and Head of its department of psychological medicine, Vice Dean for Academic Psychiatry, Teaching and Training at the Institute of Psychiatry, as well as Director of the King’s Centre for Military Health Research. Earlier this year he was elected president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
Wessley made his career by denying symptoms of so-called Gulf War Syndrome, claiming symptoms were idiopathic or unique to each individual.
This situation may have profound effects on the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth.
The response of Michael Bach in Israel relates directly to Stephen Clarke’s complaint.
Kind regards,
John Weigel

August 11
Ladies and Gentlemen,
This update is prompted by a telephone call Sunday evening from Stephen Clarke, the Irish father from Co. Kildare in the Republic, who demonstrated against microwave technology in the classroom by climbing a sculpture and waving a white flag. Following his arrest, in court he was referred to the Mater Infirmorum, a psychiatric unit in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where he has languished for nine weeks.
According to Mr. Clarke, nurses are refusing to administer the medication which was to begin Friday at noon. As of Sunday evening Clarke reported that each nursing shift is “kicking it to the next one”.Â
Last week he was transferred to a different ward. “In the last ward the nurses said I was an ideal patient – if anyone can be an ideal patient in a place like this. The nurses here are great. Although I’ve only been on this ward for a week, I get along with all of them.”
There appears to be some controversy regarding who is actually responsible for administering medication, nursing or medical staff.
Kind regards,
John Weigel
August 13
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Stephen Clarke is on his third day of forced medication in Belfast.
A conversation with his lawyer, Paul McCann, of the law firm Madden and Finucane, revealed that a consultant forensic psychiatrist will be available next week. Mr. McCann was provided with a cross section of books, scientific papers and articles outlining the dangers of electromagnetic radiation.
Clarke, a resident of Leixlip, Co. Kildare in the Republic of Ireland, was arrested following a protest against exposure of his children to wi-fi in the classroom. Rather than address the nature of the protest itself or the reason for it, the judge ordered that Clarke be referred for psychiatric assessment (and treatment).
The drug Clarke was administered is Abilify by Bristol Meyers. It’s for schizophrenia and other psychoses.
Adverse reactions include:
Positive reactions are left to the subjective judgement of ill-informed psychiatrists and judges.
This update includes information from the U.S., Canada and Australia.
The point remains, if this technology is safe, why is there so much secrecy and opposition?
Kind regards,
John Weigel
August 17
Elected Officials, Ladies & Gentlemen,
The following update is particularly lengthy because it includes important information from Martin Weatherall of the W.E.E.P Initiative, Canada, and Art Kab who compiles The Microwave Factor.
There is some duplication but this is done to maintain the integrity of their work.
Mr. Stephen Clarke of Leixlip, Co. Kildare, Ireland is into the 11th week of his incarceration at the Mater Infirmorum psychiatric unit in Belfast where he is being force medicated for demonstrating against wi-fi in the classroom. It is relevant to his situation that Dr. Magda Havas, Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Trent University warned the people of his village several years ago about the dangers associated with microwave radiation and a visit to Leixlip by Prof. Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm.
In the U.K. use of pharmaceuticals for psychiatric treatment is called a “chemical cosh – in other words, use of a blunt instrument to force compliance. This particularly Orwellian matter has been of concern for the British Home Office for some time.
Ministers responsible for the Home Office include:
Public enquiries regarding Mr. Clarke’s circumstances should be addressed in writing to the above through:

Thank you for your email to the Commission in relation to Mr Stephen Clarke. I am waiting to speak with Mr Clarke’s solicitor and will be back in touch once I have discussed the matter with him.

August 19 Update:
I spoke to Stephen last night.
On Friday he asked for his treatment plan and there was none. On Monday the doctor doubled his dosage from 5 mils to 1o mils with a view to increasing it to 30 mils.
He remains lucid and determined.
I thought it interesting when he observed, “There are guys in here who have been on meds for as long as 18 years and they just keep changing them, burning different parts of their brains…”
Kind regards,

Most Australians don't know that brain cancer kills more children than any other disease

Most Australians don't know that brain cancer kills more children than any other disease

From Daily Mail Australia, August 29m 2014

Two brave little girls – and their battle with Australia’s deadliest childhood disease: Eloise died at ten. Hana has endured invasive surgery. So why is just 3% of research cash spent on helping the children struck down by brain cancer?

* Most Australians don’t know that brain cancer kills more children than any other disease
* Only three per cent of National Health and Medical Research Council funding has gone towards brain cancer
* More high profile cancers like breast cancers and Leukemia received 11 per cent of all research funding
* Barrie Littlefield, who lost his 10-year-old daughter Eloise to brain cancer, urges the community to donate to help find a cure

There was nothing more precious in the world for Barrie Littlefield when his daughter was born. Eloise Littlefield was daddy’s little girl. The pair were inseparable up until the moment the 10-year-old was tragically taken away by what’s been described as the number one killer among Australian children – brain cancer. Eloise lost her battle to brain cancer in 2011. But her story isn’t one that’s unique. Australian neurosurgeon Charlie Teo says the disease kills more children than any other, yet nine out of 10 Australians are completely unaware of this statistic.
