PRESS RELEASE: CIVIL SOCIETY INITIATIVE TO IMPLEMENT 1978 UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY DECISION ON EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE & UFOs
NATIONAL PRESS CLUB
[ Washington DC – April 21, 2008] Four non-governmental organizations have launched a joint initiative to urge the implementation of a historic UN General Assembly Decision concerning extraterrestrial life and UFOs, adopted on December 18, 1978. This year marks the 30th anniversary of UN General Assembly Decision 33/426 that invited: "Member States to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects." The Decision further invited Member States to "inform the Secretary-General of the observations, research and evaluation of such activities." Text of UN Decision is attached.
The four NGOs have sent letters to the governments of France, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Brazil requesting each to forward to the UN Secretary General details of documents concerning UFOs each country has publicly released in the last several years.
