Former Congressman Kennedy champions safer & non-addictive pain management as CYT-1010, an alternative to classical opioids, is entering Phase 2 Clinical Trials

The Former Congressman’s years of distinguished advocacy have given him an impactful voice to help drive forward our mutual mission of providing a safer, non-addictive option for pain management.”

— C. Dean Maglaris, CEO of Cytogel

DARIEN, CONN., USA, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cytogel Pharma, a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company developing first-in-class drug candidates, dedicated to safer pain management, announced Patrick J. Kennedy, former U.S. Congressman, and founder of the national mental health nonprofit, The Kennedy Forum, has joined the firm’s Advisory Board, which is populated with other renowned voices from the medical, scientific and advocacy community.

CYT-1010 is an endomorphin compound that targets the right receptors of the central nervous system to block pain – with minimal adverse effects: In a Phase 1 clinical study, CYT-1010 demonstrated safety and significant analgesic activity. In preclinical studies, at therapeutic doses, it has been shown to provide:

– Safe and effective pain relief
– Impressive anti-inflammatory effects
– Little to no addiction potential
– No respiratory depression

This groundbreaking approach is backed by scientific evidence that elucidates its novel mechanism of action, differentiating it from that of the existing opioids and presenting an attractive alternative treatment for people in pain.

"We are so pleased that Congressman Kennedy is joining us as a strategic advisor," said C. Dean Maglaris, CEO of Cytogel. "The Former Congressman’s years of distinguished advocacy have given him an impactful voice to help drive forward our mutual mission of providing a safer, non-addictive option for pain management. Patrick joins us at this critical time as we take CYT-1010 into Phase 2 Clinical Development, which will take us that much closer to realizing a safer treatment for patients in pain.”

During his 16 years in the U.S. House of Representatives, Kennedy co-authored the landmark Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (Federal Parity Law), which requires insurers to cover treatment for mental health and substance use disorders no more restrictively than treatment for illnesses of the body, such as diabetes and cancer.

“With its alternative to classical opioid treatment, Cytogel is on the cusp of a major medical breakthrough—one that will quite literally save lives,” said Kennedy. “We need all hands on deck when it comes to battling the public health crisis of addiction. I’m proud to work with a company that is hyper-focused on changing the status quo.”

As founder of The Kennedy Forum, former Congressman Kennedy unites advocates, business leaders, and government agencies to advance evidence-based practices and policies in mental health and addiction. In 2017, he was appointed to the President's Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis. He currently serves as co-chair of the Action Alliance's Mental Health & Suicide Prevention National Response to COVID-19, and co-chair of the Bipartisan Policy Center's Behavioral Health Integration Task Force.

In addition to Kennedy, Cytogel recently announce that Christopher Gharibo, MD, a leading clinical and scientific practitioner, has also joined Cytogel’s Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Gharibo is a Professor with the Departments of Anesthesiology, Peri-Operative Care & Pain Medicine as well as Orthopedics at New York University School of Medicine and serves as the Medical Director of Pain Medicine at NYU Langone Hospitals Center.

The U.S. Trademark Certificate of Registration has been issued for Cytogel’s groundbreaking investigational stage pain medicine, CYT-1010®. Cytogel also has a solid portfolio of issued patents and patent applications claiming multiple compositions and uses of the primary molecular structure, salt forms, novel formulations, related species and new molecules. The Composition of Matter patent is in effect until 2038.

About Cytogel Pharma:

US Public Broadcasters Cannabis Program Decried by Drug Prevention Advocates

Pop-Pot

PopPot Official Logo

NOVA PBS The Cannabis Question Fraught with Conflict of Interests – Soros and Koch influences over program downplay the harms of cannabis.

MERRIFIELD, VIRGINIA, USA, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Parents Opposed to Pot (PopPot.org) calls out PBS’s science program NOVA, The Cannabis Question, for using Koch funding and Soros-funded sources when claiming to objectively explore cannabis science. NOVA's documentary film aired on September 29, downplaying the major risks of marijuana, without mentioning the conflicts of interests of several featured "experts."

This bias breaches the public trust in PBS and NOVA. "It is well established that marijuana can cause psychosis, " explains Aubree Adams, Director of EveryBrainMatters.org, a project of PopPot.org.

There were no interviews with the doctors from the International Academy on the Science and Impact of Cannabis (IASIC). Instead, the television program gave prominence to Dr. Staci Gruber, part of The Coalition for Cannabis Policy, Education, and Regulation, launched in 2021 “with the purpose of influencing policy and potentially shaping the first federal cannabis regulations.” Her coalition includes corporate interests such as alcohol and tobacco companies.

At the beginning Gruber stated that policy should be informed by data and science, an irony considering that the program failed to explore the conclusions of the 2017 National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine on The Health Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids.” The show doesn’t mention the comprehensive medical text published by Springer Press in 2020 on the topic Cannabis in Medicine: An Evidence-Based Approach.

One brief interview was with Dr. Nora Volkow, the director of National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). Volkow said that many people end up with marijuana-induced psychosis. However, the filmmaker chose to skip over the very important science on psychosis and its irrefutable connection to cannabis. The film also neglected to cover EVALI (the vaping illnesses related to THC), Cannabinoid Hyperemesis Syndrome, the types of cancer associated with cannabis, and negative impacts on heart and lung functions.

While focusing on the story of a veteran with PTSD arrested for using marijuana, the program didn’t delve into research on marijuana for PTSD. A large, long-term study of American veterans by Wilkinson et al. found that “initiating marijuana use after treatment was associated with worse PTSD symptoms, more violent behavior, and alcohol use.”

The film featured Kassandra Frederique, Executive Director of the Drug Policy Alliance, funded by George Soros to promote the legalization of all drugs. Although David Koch Foundation for Science funds NOVA, the program veered away from science into criminal justice, claiming that arrests for marijuana are more harmful than adverse outcomes of cannabis use, an opinion with which we strongly disagree. A psychotic break from a marijuana-induced psychosis sometimes results in severe, lifelong mental illness or early death.

For the program to claim that not enough research has been done on THC and CBD is disproven by clinicaltrials.gov which publishes hundreds of studies funded by National Institute of Health (NIH) . This research is in addition to the multitude of research conducted overseas, in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere, particularly notable in terms of rigorous epidemiological investigations of harmful side effects of cannabis use.

NOVA PBS chose a biased moderator for a follow-up Internet Q & A on October 7. Our questions about the links between marijuana and psychotic disorders, violence and addiction to other drugs were ignored in favor of questions pushing an agenda. "Every day I speak to families whose children have been tragically harmed by cannabis," says Aubree Adams. She continues, "NOVA's The Cannabis Question needs to broadcast their voices."

Parents Opposed to Pot, a 501c3 non-profit based in Merrifield, VA, “bursts the bubble of the marijuana hype” and represents families who have been harmed by the false notion that marijuana is safe. Visit the website, PopPot.org, email outreach@poppot.org or call 773-322-7523 for more information.

(Video) State Visits to Iran Send the Wrong Message and Reinforce a Violent Regime’s Impunity

PARIS, FRANCE, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Wednesday the European Union announced Enrique Mora, the deputy political director of the European External Action Service, visits Iran to hold cordial talks with Ebrahim Raisi’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

This marks at least the second time Mora has legitimized the Raisi administration on the international stage. In August, he personally attended Raisi’s inauguration, drawing criticism from activists both inside Iran and throughout the Iranian diaspora who had spent the previous two months working to draw greater attention to Raisi’s history of human rights abuses and crimes against humanity.

In the summer of 1988, Raisi became one of four key figures to sit on the Tehran “death commission” that oversaw the mass execution of over 30,000 political prisoners. Eyewitnesses to the massacre tend to describe Raisi as having been first among his peers in pursuing the broadest possible application of a fatwa from Supreme Leader Ruhollah Khomeini which urged the killing of anyone who appeared to still support Iran’s leading democratic opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

Three such witnesses appeared in Wednesday’s press conference alongside the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Foreign Affairs Committee member Hossein Abedini, former Scottish MEP Struan Stevenson, and Tahar Boumedra, the former head of the human rights office for the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq. Prior to the press conference, Stevenson submitted a 111-page dossier to the head of Police Scotland, bearing the signatures of the three participating witnesses, plus two others. He and Boumedra emphasized that similar documents had been submitted in multiple countries, with the latter presenting one to authorities in London on July 2.

The dossier was accompanied by a formal request for an investigation into Raisi’s role in the 1988 massacre. While the immediate goal of Stevenson’s appeal to Scottish authorities was avowedly to prevent Raisi from setting foot in the country, he and other advocates for accountability have noted that all nations have the legal authority to arrest and prosecute Raisi under the principle of universal jurisdiction. Boumedra suggested that this principle could also apply to any of the more than 70 participants in the massacre who have been explicitly identified by an organization he heads called Justice for Victims of the 1988 Massacre in Iran.

Participants in the press conference expressed hope that Scottish, English, and other investigations in Raisi’s crimes would set the stage for a broader investigation by the International Criminal Court, ultimately leading to his prosecution in that venue. Some legal scholars have even stated that such prosecution could be based on a charge of genocide, given that the fatwa underlying the 1988 massacre expressed an intention to kill anyone whose religious identity was at odds with the regime’s theocratic fundamentalism.

The genocide label strongly underscores the betrayal of human rights principles that is inherent in the EU’s efforts to legitimize Raisi’s presidential role. At the same time, it reinforces the notion that if an ICC investigation is not forthcoming, any nation in good standing with international law could execute an arrest warrant for Raisi or any of the other known participants in the 1988 massacre. In a virtual conference organized by the NCRI in July, the British human rights barrister Geoffrey Robertson emphasized that the Genocide Convention effectively obligates ratifying countries to take action over such matters. In the same conference, Eric David, a Belgian professor of international law, stated that the unilateral prosecution of Raisi’s crimes would present “no legal difficulty” for any Western nation.

The truth of this was essentially proven the following month when a Swedish criminal court initiated the prosecution of Hamid Noury, a former Iranian prison official who participated in the 1988 massacre at a much lower level than Raisi. The case against Noury expressly cites universal jurisdiction in an effort to hold him accountable for war crimes and mass murder. Persons seeking justice for the victims of the 1988 massacre are hopeful that the Swedish case will now serve as a model for the behavior of other Western nations.

The regime’s decision in appointing Raisi as president was fervently rejected by the overwhelming majority of Iranian people, as evidenced by the June presidential election having the lowest voter turnout in the history of the Iranian regime. Raisi was put forward as the only viable candidate, and he took office amidst an outpouring of risky public protest over his reputation as the “butcher of 1988” and leading perpetrators of the crackdown on dissent in November 2019, as well.

Raisi was head of the Iranian judiciary at that time when activists all across Iran staged simultaneous public protests calling for a wholesale change of government. Within days of the nationwide uprising breaking out, 1,500 peaceful protesters were killed, and Raisi’s judiciary oversaw systematic torture of political detainees for months afterward. The crackdown apparently helped to secure Raisi’s endorsement by the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and it also signaled that further surges in violent repression were likely to take place under Raisi’s presidential administration.

The international community must understand this fact as it sets policy toward Iran in the weeks and months to come. Western powers, as ostensible defenders of universal human rights principles, must not allow nuclear negotiations to overshadow the threats looming over the Iranian people. Tehran’s impunity must be challenged, and there is no better first step toward this goal than by making it clear that Ebrahim Raisi will face arrest for his past crimes against humanity if he ever sets foot on Western soil.

PARIS, FRANCE, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — This week, the Iranian regime's manipulated casualty rate from Covid-19 surpassed 122,000. The Iranian regime has a history of underreporting mortality rates and downplaying a public health crisis that has been out of control from the outset.

The actual death toll, according to the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), is around 455,500, about four times the official amount.

The MEK's overall projections are supplemented with detailed estimates from several individual localities, reflecting the network's methodology.

Throughout the country, that network has gathered both publicly available information and leaked documentation from medical facilities, morgues, and municipal government organizations. It has also emphasized eyewitness accounts, notably from medical professionals, to suggest that the health system is overburdened to a degree that contradicts the regime's official claims.

In the early days of the pandemic, the credibility of such government declarations was widely questioned. By the time the authorities admitted there had been even one case of coronavirus infection in Iran, some areas had already become quite dangerous.

As a result, there was a clear discrepancy between regime officials' assertions. Morgues in the city of Qom were reported to be completely full by the end of February 2020, despite the Iranian regime's president and his Health Ministry insisting that the national death toll was still in the single digits.

For the interests of propaganda, Tehran has denied the presence of Covid-19. In January and early February, the dictatorship commemorated the 40th anniversary of its ascension to power, as well as the death of Qassem Soleimani, the regime's top terrorist operative, in a US drone strike.

As with previous anniversary celebrations, some government personnel was required to participate, and other parts of Iranian society were encouraged to do so through a mass marketing effort and financial incentives.

In recent days, the regime pushed Shiite religious holiday Arbaeen celebrations, with no protocols in place to prevent virus spread.

The regime's Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, celebrated the holiday discreetly, realizing the risk to his own health, but expressed no concerns about tens of thousands of Iranians traveling to an Iraqi pilgrimage destination in large numbers.

Ebrahim Raisi, the regime's new president, has aided the protests this week by misrepresenting the vaccination rate, falsely saying that 70% of the population is protected against the virus when his own Health Ministry claims that the proportion is barely 20%.

As part of his regime's cruel Covid-19 policy, Khamenei barred the import of those vaccinations in January, pressuring health officials to expedite the introduction of a homegrown replacement while also getting less effective or less thoroughly researched vaccines from Russia and China.

The embargo was apparently eased slightly throughout the summer when the fifth wave resulted in several days with official fatality counts above 100.

However, as the dictatorship has resorted to its deceptive propaganda portraying the crisis as well under control, authorities have resumed full implementation of the ban.

This, combined with the Arbaeen celebrations and the regime's ongoing denial and deflection campaign, has prompted many Iranian doctors and media outlets to voice public worry over a new outbreak of illness and fatality rates.

"We must not think that vaccination can allow us to tone down the protocols," the deputy dean of Iran Medical Services University warned the Iranian Students News Agency.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI): COVID19 fatalities in Iran have surpassed 455,500, the highest per capita figure in the world, even based on the most conservative estimates. My condolences to Iranians, especially the victims’ families. I pray for the recovery of those infected.

Khamenei does not value Iranian people’s life and health. Vaccine bans from the US and France, failure to provide for deprived people, and withholding the wages of the medical staff, form part of the regime’s criminal conduct.

Khamenei and his regime massacred political prisoners in 1988 to keep their grip on power. Now, they are causing hundreds of thousands of deaths in the inferno of the COVID19 to preserve their rule.

How Many Americans Are Taking Antidepressants Because Severe Withdrawal Symptoms Are Preventing Them from Stopping?

All psychotropic drugs can cause withdrawal symptoms when they are decreased in dosage or discontinued, even with slow tapering, researchers found. This is cause for concern for the 77 million Americans taking psychotropic drugs in 2020.

Patients should be warned about the risk of severe and long-lasting withdrawal symptoms before being prescribed antidepressants. Discontinuing or reducing the dosage of the drugs should be done under a physician’s supervision.

CCHR was co-founded by the late psychiatrist and humanitarian Thomas Szasz, M.D., recognized by many academics as modern psychiatry’s most authoritative critic.

CCHR continues to advocate for the full disclosure of the risks of serious side effects and withdrawal symptoms from psychiatric drugs so that patients can make fully informed decisions about taking or discontinuing the drugs.

More than 25 million Americans taking antidepressants face withdrawal symptoms when they quit; for nearly half, the symptoms will be severe, research suggests.

When many patients try to stop taking [antidepressants], the withdrawal syndrome produces such torture-like emotional and physical reactions that they think they need to keep taking the medication.”

— Psychiatrist Peter Breggin, M.D.

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Millions of Americans taking psychiatric drugs are facing a risk they may be entirely unaware of: severe and long-lasting withdrawal symptoms when quitting the drugs – symptoms so unbearable that many will be unable to quit, even when the drugs are gradually reduced by a physician.

The fact is, there are no scientifically-validated guidelines on how to prevent withdrawal symptoms. This is cause for concern for the 77 million Americans taking psychotropic drugs in 2020.

All psychotropic drugs can cause withdrawal symptoms when they are decreased in dosage or discontinued, even with slow tapering, researchers found.

A review of the current literature on withdrawal symptoms by Fiammetta Cosci and Guy Chouinard, published in Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics in 2020, found that even with a gradual reduction in dosage, withdrawal symptoms can occur in all classes of psychoactive drugs. These drugs are the primary mode of treatment by psychiatrists.

The researchers took special note of SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and SNRI (serotonin noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors) antidepressants and antipsychotics, which they found were “associated with persistent post-withdrawal disorders and potential high severity of symptoms.”

Some 45 million Americans – roughly one in seven – were taking antidepressants in 2020. Those who decide to discontinue the drugs because of the adverse effects they experienced, the drugs’ lack of effectiveness, or a decision the drugs are not needed for treatment face the risk of possibly severe and long-lasting physical and mental symptoms, even when under the care of a physician.

Researchers James Davies, Ph.D., co-founder of the U.K.-based Council for Evidence-based Psychiatry, and John Read, Ph.D., a professor of clinical psychology at the University of East London, conducted an analysis of 23 earlier peer-reviewed studies on withdrawal from antidepressants. Their study, published in Addictive Behaviors in 2019, found that more than 56% of people who attempt to come off antidepressants experience withdrawal effects, with nearly half (46%) of them rating those effects as “severe.”

These figures, when applied to the number of antidepressant users in the U.S., suggest that more than 25 million Americans taking the drugs will experience withdrawal symptoms if they attempt to quit, and for some 11 million of them, the symptoms will be severe.

The United Kingdom took action to inform consumers of the risk of withdrawal symptoms after the Royal College of Psychiatrists admitted in 2019 that coming off antidepressants can cause symptoms that are severe and long-lasting and that patients should be warned of this risk before being prescribed the drugs.

The Royal College website lists antidepressant withdrawal symptoms that include nausea, dizziness, loss of coordination, sleep problems, difficulty concentrating, headache, the feeling of electric shocks in the body’s limbs and head (“brain zaps”), mood swings, anxiety, panic and depression.

The Cosci and Chouinard study found evidence of more severe withdrawal symptoms following decrease or discontinuation of antidepressants which, depending on the drug discontinued, could include hypertension, seizures, stroke-like symptoms, amnesia, agitation, fear, anger, aggressive behavior, hallucinations, delirium, and suicidal thoughts.

The longer antidepressants were taken and the higher the dose, the more severe and prolonged the withdrawal symptoms are likely to be.

A study published in 2020 in the Journal of the Osteopathic Association, noted that “with extended use, [antidepressants] can be notoriously difficult to quit because they can produce a state of physical dependence.”

This makes withdrawal even more difficult for a large number of antidepressant users.

“Some 15.5 million Americans have taken antidepressants for at least five years,” according to science reporter Benedict Carey, writing in the New York Times in 2018. “The rate has almost doubled since 2010, and more than tripled since 2000,” he noted.

Long-term antidepressant users face the prospect of being unable to quit. A research team in New Zealand, led by Dr. Dee Mangin of McMaster University, conducted a clinical trial in which subjects who had been on an antidepressant for at least two years, with one-third of them taking the drugs for more than five years, had their dosages slowly reduced and found that some people’s symptoms were so severe, they could not stop taking the drugs.

Research has also shown that adverse effects of withdrawal can last much longer than previously thought. A study by psychiatrist Tom Stockmann et al., published in 2018 in the International Journal of Risk & Safety in Medicine, analyzed withdrawal symptoms reported on an Internet forum and found that the average duration of withdrawal symptoms when discontinuing SSRI antidepressants was 90.5 weeks – roughly a year and nine months – and for SNRI antidepressants, 50.8 weeks. [https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29758951/]

Compounding the trouble when discontinuing psychotropic drugs, the physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms can be misdiagnosed as relapse, a return of the original mental distress or behavioral problem, which may cause patients to stay on the drugs for the wrong reason.

Writing about antidepressants, psychiatrist Peter Breggin, M.D., says that “when many patients try to stop taking their drugs, the withdrawal syndrome produces such torture-like emotional and physical reactions that they think they need to keep taking the medication to control their ‘mental illness.’” [http://breggin.com/antidepressant-drugs-resource-center/]

Because of the known risk of severe and long-lasting withdrawal symptoms, both patients and their doctors are often reluctant to start and carry through on discontinuation of antidepressants, leading to much longer-term use than is really wanted.

A study by Wentink et al. in the journal BMC Family Practice in 2019 cited evidence that almost 30% of antidepressant users continue to take the drugs for more than a year and that the steady rise of antidepressant use is mainly the result of the growing number of chronic users. The severity and duration of the withdrawal symptoms these patients face may be an important part of the reason for this increase.

Research has shown that long-term use of psychiatric drugs has far more troubling consequences than originally known. Attempting to come off the drugs without the existence of any medically-validated exit plan has already caused untold suffering, with millions more Americans still facing that risk.

WARNING: Anyone wishing to discontinue or change the dose of any psychiatric drug is cautioned to do so only under the supervision of a physician because of potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms.

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) continues to make consumers aware of the dangers of psychiatric drugs and to advocate for the full disclosure of the risks of serious side effects and withdrawal symptoms from these powerful, mind-altering drugs, so that patients can make fully informed decisions about taking or discontinuing the drugs. CCHR also continues to press government mental health and drug agencies to issue further warnings about the risks of these drugs.

CCHR was co-founded in 1969 by members of the Church of Scientology and the late psychiatrist and humanitarian Thomas Szasz, M.D., recognized by many academics as modern psychiatry’s most authoritative critic, to eradicate abuses and restore human rights and dignity to the field of mental health. Since then, CCHR has helped obtain more than 180 laws that protect mental health patients.

The CCHR National Affairs Office in Washington, DC, has advocated for mental health rights at the state and federal level. The CCHR traveling exhibit, which has toured 441 major cities worldwide and educated over 800,000 people on the history of abusive psychiatric practices up to the present time, has been displayed in Washington, DC, at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Caucus and other locations.

Missing for Seven Years, Religious and Human Rights Groups Urge Governments to Work to Save Yazidi Women and Children

This flag represents the Yazidi people, who turn their faces towards the sun twice a day for prayer

Roundtable meeting in support of international religious freedom

International Religious Freedom Roundtable meeting

Church of Scientology joins diverse international organizations in urging immediate attention to the travesty of 2,763 missing following the 2014 genocide

The fate of the missing Yazidis cannot be forgotten. ‘Never again’ implies an international commitment to prevent genocide and rescue those victims who can be rescued.”

— Rev. Susan Taylor, Church of Scientology National Affairs Office

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Where are they? Are they alive? What has been the fate of these kidnapped, enslaved and persecuted women and children?

While the plight of the Yazidis in northern Iraq dominated the headlines following the 2014 persecution, they have since been all but forgotten by the major media and many international governments. Attention has, understandably, turned to fighting COVID and other international issues, but the Yazidis cannot be forgotten.

In response to confirmed reports by the United Nations and other organizations, of genocide by ISIS/ISIL against the Yazidi religious people, a diverse group of religious, peace, and human rights organizations from around the world jointly urged governments to take action on behalf of the missing Yazidi women and children, 2,763 of whom have been missing for seven years.

In a letter signed by 99 organizations and individuals, addressed to Secretary of State Antony Blinken and foreign ministers and executives in the European Union, Germany, France, Canada, and the United Kingdom, the group brought attention back to the plight of the missing Yazidi women and children.

The world has recognized that genocide was committed by ISIS/ISIL against the Yazidi people. Yet seven years after the attacks, these women and children remain unaccounted for.

The letter proclaims, “Seven years after the genocide, it is a travesty that the Yazidi women and children remain missing and their fate unknown. If they are alive, they continue to be enslaved and subjected to daily abuse. Despite findings of genocide and repeated pronouncements expressing concern for Yazidis, the international community has failed to organize any effort to locate these kidnapped individuals.”

The letter calls upon the international community to: “Work with partners to conduct an official search to identify the whereabouts of the missing women and children, including in the Al-Hol camp in Syria where many are believed to be held; and work with local partners to free all Yazidi women and children who are alive and ensure that the remains of those killed are returned to their families and given a dignified and honourable burial.”

Organizations, ranging from Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Coalition for Genocide Response, Free Yezidi Foundation, the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office, Humanists UK, and the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation joined with distinguished individuals including Lord Alton of Liverpool, UK House of Lords; Baroness Helena Kennedy QC, UK House of Lords, Director of the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute; and Nadine Maenza, Chair, U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, are bringing this to international attention and urging immediate action to find and return the missing Yazidis.

The letter was circulated amongst members of the International Religious Freedom Roundtable for cooperation between organizations. The Roundtable, organized in 2010, has become the premier platform in Washington, DC, for practical policy discussions and coordination between civil society, government, and multilateral organizations. It has attracted representatives from some 300 organizations and launched more than 200 multifaith initiatives. These initiatives have been deployed by and for people from across the theological and political spectrum. The Roundtable meets weekly and works closely with government offices including the US State Department’s International Religious Freedom Office and the US Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Rev. Susan Taylor of the Church of Scientology National Affairs Office, an active member of the IRF Roundtable since 2010, noted, “We can not tolerate such horrible abuses against humanity. There will be no lasting peace until all faiths, majority and minority alike, are respected by all peoples, all the time. The fate of the missing Yazidis cannot be forgotten. ‘Never again’ implies an international commitment to prevent genocide and rescue those victims who can be rescued.”

The Church of Scientology has since its inception stood for freedom of religion and human rights for all, as stated in its creed written by L. Ron Hubbard in 1954. The Church also supports educational programs such as United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights International which teach the 30 articles of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, stressing the importance of religious freedom, no slavery and freedom from torture. Together they sponsor national and international summits and roundtables. United for Human Rights and Youth for Human Rights International provide free educational materials to help make human rights a reality.

American Wild Horse Campaign Got It Wrong: Wild Horses Paying The Price

The Deptartment of Interior and Bureau of Land Management are engaged in a so-called management plan that is devastating the genetic survival of wild horses, and is made worse via the use of PZP and GonaCon with the support of some non-profits

American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) spent time and money heaping praises upon Deb Haaland only to later discover they were totally wrong about her agenda.

If the current elimination of wild horses across America under Deb Haaland is what AWHC and Ms. Gann consider 'protecting wild horses', I would hate to see Haaland's idea of not 'protecting' them!”

— William E. Simpson II – Naturalist

YREKA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In an opinion article printed in the Santa Fe New Mexican on December 17th of 2020, Holly Gann, who is director of government relations for American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC), was so busy heaping praises upon Deb Haaland for her supposed support for wild horses, Ms. Gann and AWHC totally missed the reality of Deb Haaland's agenda.

Having said that, and as a result of that misjudgement by AWHC of Deb Haaland's intentions, American wild horses are being devastated!

As a part of the praises that AWHC heaped upon Deb Haaland, Ms. Gann penned an Op-Ed article titled:

'Haaland’s work on wild horses sets an example'

"I applaud U.S. Rep. Deb Haaland for taking a stand to protect wild horses and supporting efforts in the U.S. House to humanely manage wild horse populations on the range where they belong."

It seems that AWHC was so caught up in the trend to seat minority entities into government positions, and were so enamored by Ms. Haaland's native American status and her illusion of supporting wild horses, that AWHC made some really big assumptions that are now soundly proven wrong!

The only applause I am hearing now is by the people who despise wild horses…

On December 17th 2020 I commented on that Op-Ed article by AWHC/Gann in the Santa Fe New Mexican, as follows:

"I disagree with Rep. Haaland's opinion on wild horse management. It's not consistent with the best science, nor is it consistent with allowing wildlife, in this case wild horses, to live free and without being harassed by human intervention.

Women seem particularly OK with using contraceptives on wildlife because many women have chosen to use it for themselves. However, *that* does not make it right, morally or ecologically, for use on wildlife. Women who choose to take a chemical have made an informed decision for themselves. They don't have the authority to make a decision for another sentient being!

I have authored published articles about PZP and other work-arounds being used and proposed for wild horses… here is just one: https://animalpeopleforum.org/2019/06/06/sanctuaries-acceptable-solution-excess-wild-horses/

The debate is flooded with the conjectures of people who truly know very little about the behavioral ecology of wild horses, beyond maybe seeing some captured wild horses and what they have read from third parties who themselves have scant empirical first-hand experience with free-roaming wild horses in a wilderness setting. Instead, we have lots of imperfect information, and much of that comes from brief field trip observations over a sandwich and a telephoto lens on a camera.

There is better information available, but, we have too many activists whose 'white noise' obscures genuine facts and a real solution. And we also have ask; what would wild horse activist orgs do if a real final solution that is best for wild horses was implemented? Would they have to find real jobs, instead of living off the donations of good-hearted donors? Do people here realize that some of the heads of wild horse activist orgs pay themselves like CEO's of large corporations? Well, they do… just go read their IRS-990 filings… and when you follow the money, sometimes what you find is not what you hoped for… So as we see, a genuine final solution for wild horses is NOT in the best interests of paid activists who make a very good living off the plight of wild horses… and if the truth be told, some of these people wouldn't want to lose their gravy train, no more so than the cattle industry people…
Wild horses don't require 'management' when there are located in a naturally operating ecosystem.

The posted comments here fail to realize the simple truth: mankind, not the horses, are the problem and mankind have created the problems that have unbalanced our ecosystems, including and especially on and around public lands and HMAs where the trophic cascades have been decimated in favor of livestock production and greed.

People who are interested in learning the truth about what needs to be done for wild horses, should start by reading this article:
https://pagosadailypost.com/2020/12/14/opinion-wild-horses-in-america-hard-truths-sensible-solutions/

And, this article about wild horses living in balance in a forest ecosystem in the mountains on the OR-CA border:
https://grazelife.com/blog/wild-horse-fire-brigade-lessons-in-rebalancing-north-american-ecosystems-by-rewilding-equids/

More information about an ecologically and economically sound final solution for wild horses and burros is found here: www.WHFB.us"

Department of Interior ('DOI') Director Deb Haaland's so-called 'protecting' wild horses:

Now as the new Director of the DOI, Deb Haaland is behind the orchestration and implementation of the final axe-stroke upon the neck of the very survival of American wild horses!

If the current extermination of wild horses across America under Deb Haaland is what AWHC and Ms. Gann consider 'protecting wild horses', I would hate to see Haaland's idea of not 'protecting' them!

This paradigm, where the big gold-plated non-profits arguably spend a lot of time and money kissing-up to politicians in order to keep themselves relevant in the media while trying to influence government management concepts by promoting PZP, which they posit as the path forward for managing wild horses, is one of the reasons why we see so much mismanagement of American wild horses.

I have in the past reached out to Suzanne Roy at AWHC and Neda DeMayo at Return To Freedom, asking them to reconsider their flawed beliefs and posits in regard to wild horses. They seemed unwilling to consider a solution that would truly end the range-war and the plight of American wild horses.

It is my belief that their refusal to support a genuine, naturally sustainable and holistic solution for the plight of American wild horses and burros is in part due to the fact that such a sustainable and cost-effective solution (Wild Horse Fire Brigade) would end the need for their donation-driven organizations.

The result of such a naturally sustainable solution is that; wild horses would finally get to live naturally, free of human meddling and most importantly 'wild' as Nature intended, and the people at the non-profits would then have to go find new jobs.

It also seems that according to law (IRS rules) 501-c-3 non-profits are prohibited from engaging in aggressive lobbying efforts, which requires a 501-c-4 non-profit standing. And given the amount of 'lobbying' that we see going-on by 501-c-3 non-profit wild horse activists these days, some may have crossed the line? And that in itself may be worth looking into?

According to the AWHC website: "AWHC is registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donation is tax-deductible. Our tax identification number is 47-4016989."

From the IRS:

"In general, no organization may qualify for section 501(c)(3) status if a substantial part of its activities is attempting to influence legislation (commonly known as lobbying). A 501(c)(3) organization may engage in some lobbying, but too much lobbying activity risks loss of tax-exempt status."

After decades of these large non-profit activist organizations (not sanctuaries) meddling and spending tens of $-millions in donation dollars, we find that today, wild horses are worse-off than ever before! That is the only metric that counts! Good intentions are meaningless when it's results that are desperately needed.

And the non-profits who support and promote of the use of chemicals to drug wild horses and burros as so-called 'contraception' are aiding in an insidious disaster that is being inflicted upon the relatively few remaining wild mares on the public lands by these non-profits in concert with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
