Any effective idea for ending the "War on Drugs" (phonier than "Peace on
Drugs") needs to consider this "supply side" issue of the protection of the
bulk of the illegal drug trade by the very same US government corruption
which is using prohibition laws to keep this trade profitable (ie, MONEY is
The Drug) for the benefit of its politicians and "businessmen".

Remember that August 15th this year is the 55th anniversary of the signing
of the agreement that ended World War II.   In context of this UN Year of
Creating a Culture of Peace for the 21st Century, it could be effective to
use this Aug15 date as a target date by which to formulate a "21st Century
Global Peace Treaty", to address not only the WoD but also the thousands of
people who are killed daily in wars around the world today, the threat of a
WWIII or expanded terrorism campaigns, nuclear conflagration, global economy
exploitations, critical global environmental emergencies, etc.

I will send some suggestions separately for draft of "21st Century Global
Peace Treaty"
per suggestion at meeting last Tuesday discussing action plans for national
political conventions and DNC in Los Angeles during "People's Convention",
and "Shadow Convention" which has a War on Drugs focus for August 15th.

CIA-DRUGS SYMPOSIUM IN EUGENE, OREGON

CALENDAR LISTING:
Saturday, June 10, 8 a.m. - 10:00 p.m., Wheeler Pavilion, Lane County
Fairgrounds.   Drug Symposium featuring  nationally known researchers and
scholars who will explore U.S. government involvement in the drug trade.
Peter Dale Scott, Rodney Stich, Michael Ruppert, Daniel Hopsicker.

EUGENE, OREGON: Eight nationally-known speakers offer a free, day-long drug
symposium on Saturday, June 10, to explore why narcotics are so easily
available on the streets of America.   Concerned parents, political leaders,
law enforcement personnel and the general public are invited to a series of
three workshops and two films to be shown at the Wheeler Pavilion, Lane
County Fairgrounds.

Evening keynote speaker, Dr. Peter Dale Scott, is a prolific author and
public speaker from the University of California at Berkeley, who has been
delving into the politics of the cocaine trade for some 20 years.  He is
author of Cocaine Politics and co-author of The Iran Contra Connection.  He
is joined by Michael Ruppert, a former Los Angeles Police Department officer
who discovered the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) bringing drugs into the
United States.  Ruppert is publisher of From the Wilderness magazine, which
deals with the effects of illegal, covert operations on American society.

Celerino "Cele" Castillo is a 12-year veteran of the Drug Enforcement
Administration (DEA), who served in El Salvador and Central America from
1985
to 1990.  His book Powderburns exposes CIA and DEA collaboration with drug
traffickers in Central America.  Catherine Austin Fitts served as Assistant
Secretary for Housing, and as Federal Housing Commissioner.  Fitts and
Castillo will speak about what they saw taking place in the drug trade from
inside the U.S. government.

REGIONAL DRUG SYMPOSIUM IN EUGENE
(continued)

Rodney Stich, author of Unfriendly Skies, Drugging America, and Defrauding
Ame
rica is a retired Navy pilot and federal inspector who, at the age of 78,
continues his 40-year campaign to expose corruption in the U.S. government.

Dedon Kamathi, a UCLA-educated black activist and recording producer,
utilizes Rap conferences as a method of delivering social change messages.
He is co-chair of the Crack the CIA Coalition, as well as U.S.
representative
to the All African People's Revolutionary Party.  He co-chairs the African
United Front and has lectured extensively on CIA covert drug activities,
including at the Green Party National Convention.

At 6:00 p.m. author and filmmaker, Daniel Hopsicker, will present In Search
of
 American Drug Lords, a television documentary (55 minutes) that includes
the
story of CIA agent/drug smuggler Adler Berrimen "Barry" Seal.

Local organizer and speaker, Kris Millegan, says this riveting program was
booked into Eugene because Lane County has a highly educated and concerned
community with a history of speaking out on social justice issues.  Millegan
says plans are underway to repeat the program in Washington D.C. later this
year.  A suggested donation of $7 per session or $20 all-day will help to
cover production costs and allow organizers to continue their efforts to
expose the real truth behind America's drug problem.
