Interesting press release - not sure what to make of it, and I'm unfamiliar with the group that submitted it (ICIS, Institute for Cooperation in Space). But this looks interesting.

United Nations, NY (PRWEB) January 1, 2006 -- For the first time in almost 27 years, the United Nations General Assembly will be debating the issue of establishing diplomatic relations with advanced Extraterrestrial Civilizations that may now be visiting Earth. On December 16, 2005, a Resolution to establish a United Nations Decade of Contact was formally transmitted to the incoming President of the General Assembly, H.E. Jan Eliasson of Sweden by the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), a Non-Governmental Organization. President Eliasson was Sweden's Ambassador to the United Nations from 2000 to 2005.
Almost to the day twenty-seven years ago, on December 18, 1978, the United Nations General Assembly voted to approve decision 33/426, inviting U.N. Member States "to take appropriate steps to coordinate on a national level scientific research and investigation into extraterrestrial life, including unidentified flying objects, and to inform the Secretary-General of the observations, research and evaluation of such activities." Then U.S. President Jimmy Carter then supported the U.N. General Assembly's decision. Carter himself had a close Encounter of the First Kind with a UFO (Night Light) in October 1969, in the company of 10 members of the Leary, Georgia Lion's Club while he was running for Governor of Georgia. Four years later, while Governor of Georgia, Carter filed a public UFO sighting report, dated September 18, 1973.

Thanks for the Info Nightowl

I made a thread that has something to do with this about the UN and disclosure. I just wanted to let you know that if you are interested, take a look and read the petition , and if you agree with what you read, to sign it.
If not interested, that's ok too. Just make sure to take a look at it though. And hey thanks again for the info .

My thread here

This was already posted in this thread.

But I will re-post my thoughts in this thread also.

This does sound promising, but I am not sure where it might lead. Does it mean that if the resolution passes, the governments of the world are admitting the UFO phenomenon is real? I don’t know. They approved a similar resolution in 1978, and most people hardly noticed, and did not consider it an admission that the phenomenon is real.

I also doubt that it means that any new classified information will be released, at least here in the States. The UN can’t force a country to release classified documents. But maybe other countries will see this as an opportunity and release information as Brazil is doing.

But on establishing diplomatic relations, how can you establish diplomatic relations with someone you can’t contact or who is unwilling to meet with you? I find this strange because I wonder if they know something the rest of us don’t know.

I do think the Decade of Contact sounds like a promising project. With funding from the UN, maybe some mainstream scientist will take this seriously and become involved and do some real investigating.

Well, I don't mean to get political here but lets not forget who we are talking about here. I think it's only proper that we first take care of ourselves before setting our sights to space.

Not only that but I don't really recall anything in recent which the UN has done. So signing this and passing it would be all great and such, but would it actually do anything?

Anymore news from the UN.Which countries would take part in disclosure and i seriously doubt that the U.S would not stop this but btw this is great news indeed and i hope its not about NWO.
ps:what do you think about this Earthsister?

My Question is:
Are these guys even authorized to make a press release on behalf of the UN?
All the release says is that "On December 16, 2005, a Resolution to establish a United Nations Decade of Contact was formally transmitted to the incoming President of the General Assembly, H.E. Jan Eliasson of Sweden by the Institute for Cooperation in Space (ICIS), a Non-Governmental Organization."

It says NOTHING about the UN's formal responce on the matter. It probably went strait to the shredder under H.E. Jan Eliasson's desk.

Guys, I want disclosure as much as the next guy, however, i am seriously begining to take everything released on PRWEB with a grain of salt...
We can not forget that it is the same place we first saw this press release...

...and we all know how well that one turned out...

I'm not trying to hurt anyones feelings or step on anyones toes, but as resopnsible researchers, we should probably begin consider the source when it comes to PRWEB. If we would have read the same thing over at India Daily, would we have believed it?

Wups - didn't notice that this was already being discussed in other threads, my bad. I did a search before I posted & couldn't find anything, so I thought I was clear. Still an interesting story.

"They", as the ET's, have been here, lights years from their homes for milenniums , for a make contact.....however all the way since Roswell 1947....or the Battle of L.A.....They know U.S is very Hostile..... with the Disclosure .....How about that? Huh?

NASA hasnot even give us the slightest "hint" of what they've been hidding....for many decades....

Am glad UK, France, Brasil, Canada....etc,etc are doing so.....opening their "X-Files" to public.....

The question is......when U.S will?
