We the undersigned are an association of citizen organizations and private citizens dedicated to research, public education and political activism concerning extraterrestrial life. In circumstances where our interests are not faithfully represented by national governments in relation to extraterrestrial life, we recognize our inalienable right to exercise citizen governance. We consequently issue the following Declaration.
We recognize the reality of extraterrestrial life and its understanding and use of advanced technologies, scientific principles and universal knowledge.
We affirm the natural right of all citizens to have safe and open contact with extraterrestrial visitors, and to engage in non-official diplomacy; and affirm the heartfelt intent of humanity to live in peaceful and cooperative relationship with extraterrestrial civilizations.
We assert that national governments claiming to represent the interests of their citizenry have repeatedly failed to disclose the reality of extraterrestrial life, and the principles and knowledge such life possesses, for over sixty years.
We accept evidence from a number of sources including scientists, researchers, military personnel, corporate personnel, whistleblowers and 'experiencers' that governmental entities within the United States and other major nations have entered into secret agreements concerning extraterrestrial life and/or technology. In some cases, these agreements are with representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations, and have been elevated to treaty status.
We understand these agreements allow for the manufacture and distribution of technology and knowledge deriving from extraterrestrial civilizations . In some cases extraterrestrials are allowed to establish bases on Earth, extract a range of resources and perform invasive medical procedures on civilians.
We object that governmental-extraterrestrial agreements have not been made public or ratified in accord with constitutional procedures in the United States or other nations.
We declare these secret agreements are a violation of the sacred trust given to national governments to faithfully represent the interests of their citizens in open transparent negotiations with foreign nations including extraterrestrial civilizations.
We hereby exercise our inalienable right of citizen governance and proclaim that on 08/08/08 at 8 pm (Universal Time):
We declare that 08/08/08 will be subsequently known as Galactic Freedom Day in recognition of our inalienable right of citizen governance.
We call upon members of the public to show their support by signing this Declaration and celebrating Galactic Freedom Day on 8/8/8, and on subsequent yearly anniversaries.
