Would you like to know if a flying saucer actually crashed near Roswell, New Mexico, back in 1947, as many UFO buffs now contend? If the government has knowledge--or possession--of extraterrestrials and/or their craft? You are not alone.
A grassroots movement to find out is now underway, and you can become a part of it by signing a copy of the Roswell Declaration, a one-page petition calling for the administration to issue an executive order declassifying any government information regarding Roswell, UFOs, and extraterrestrial intelligence.
"This is about getting to the truth, setting the record straight once and for all about what the government knows," says declaration author and one of the organizers, Kent Jeffrey, an international airline pilot. Jeffrey and his fellow organizers plan to deliver a copy of the declaration and a list of signatories to all members of Congress and to the White House.
The Roswell Declaration is not an endorsement of a position or belief, but a request for a change in the law.
"Knowledge about extraterrestrial intelligence is not a matter of national security, but one to which all humankind should have an inalienable right," Jeffrey states. "The primary goal," he adds, "is to get the matter into the open so that the truth can be determined one way or the other." Jeffrey hopes that all individuals, no matter what their personal stand on ETs, will support that view.
Various UFO organizations throughout the world are doing just that by disseminating the declaration, which has also shown up on numerous computer bulletin board services. While the main thrust of the Roswell initiative has been in the United States, it is gaining support internationally, especially in Great Britain and Germany.
If you would like to take part in this groundswell for government accountability, just sign the Declaration on the facing page, tear it out, and mail it to the following address: The Roswell Declaration, Omni Magazine, 324 West Wendover Avenue, Suite 205, Greensboro, North Carolina 27408. We will forward all of the signatures to the organizers so your voice can be heard. All signed forms need to be returned to Omni by November 30.
