The idea I had to save the planet is here. Go toSaveThePlanetProtest.comto see what it is.
This document will be printed in the newspaper calling for protest against the networks. This is it, it’s happening.
February 15-23, 2008, from 9am to 9pm everyday until the Discovery network gives in.
Who I’d like to meet:
Environmentalists, scientists, readers of Daniel Quinn, and people who want to work toward a real change.
AN ARMED man is holding at least one person hostage at the Discovery Channel’s headquarters building in Maryland, in the United States.
There’s a Hostage Situation at Discovery Channel Headquarters:
television and try to communicate with him. So why is he doing it? Apparently he’s obsessed with overpopulation, and is furious that the Discovery Channel hasn’t given the topic its due coverage. In fact, Lee has been protesting Discovery for some time, and a website registered to Lee posted a list of demands for the channel in July.
A note posted online July 18 issues a list of demands to the Discovery Channel, saying the station “MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet.” It lists 11 demands about airing shows that would promote curbing the plant’s population growth, finding solutions for global warming and dismantling “the dangerous US world economy.”
“All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions,” it reads. “In those programs’ places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it.”
Crazy, crazy man. We’ll keep you updated.
A SWAT team was dispatched to building in Silver Spring, and the suspect, an Asian male, was being monitored in the building’s lobby via CCTV cameras.
The man is reported to be carrying an explosive device.
Some employees were evacuated from the building as well as nearby areas, Montgomery County Police spokeswoman Angela Cruz told The Washington Post.
The person being held hostage is a male security guard supervisor.
Nearly 100 children were evacuated from a day care centre inside the building, and are said to be safe.
Other workers were told to take shelter in the locked offices on their floors, Fox News reported.
The incident began shortly after 1pm when police responded to reports of “shots fired”.
Police did not immediately confirm reports that shots had been fired, although local news reported that the man entered the lobby, fired his weapon and shouted: “Nobody is going anywhere.”
A motive was not immediately clear but the Discovery Channel had been receiving threats related to the cable channel’s program Whale Wars, a show featuring a group of environmental activists who attack whaling ships.
Unconfirmed reports suggested the man was an ex-employee.
