Bring Union Carbide Before the World Court

Formed in 1917 as carbon and battery company. Expanded into gases and chemicals during World War I and into uranium production and nuclear bombs in World War II.

World's largest mercury spill at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, in 1970. Some 700 people died at Hawk's Nest, West Virginia in 1930.

Chrome producer in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe); after Rhodesian imports were banned by the United Nations because of racial policy, Union Carbide and Foote Mineral lobbied the U.S. for passage of the Byrd Amendment in 1972, supposedly to avoid dependence on the Soviet Union's chrome (WOTE, p. 120-121).

Between 1986 and 1992, Union Carbide shipped mercury and other toxic wastes to South Africa to be processed at the Cato Ridge smelter run by Thor Chemicals.

In the worst industrial disaster in history, a Union Carbide pesticide plant leaked forty tons of methyl isocyanate at Bhopal, India, on December 2-3, 1984, resulting in thousands of deaths and injuries. An Indian court issued an extradition order for Union Carbide chief Warren Anderson in March 1992, to stand criminal charges. (Anderson had been arrested in February 1989 when he visited Bhopal. Union Carbide had agreed to pay some $470 million to settle all claims). By then over 3,800 people had died; 200,000 suffer respiratory, vision, internal organ, and/or genetic damage.

Union Carbide has operations in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand, and Union Polymers Malaysia is a subsidiary. 

Union Carbide Corporation is a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company. "Dow", as used throughout, often refers generically to The Dow Chemical Company and its consolidated subsidiaries.

Empty Faces

A letter from Charles Manson on people who lie:
The opinion of a circle of people that lie are just so many empty faces. At one time, people would die before they would lie, but nowadays anyone that is truthful is looked at as dumb and even a foolish clown in the eyes of the children. Lying is the U.S. way of life and in just a few years it all turned sour. We expect crooks to lie, but only an honest non-lying crook can make it in crime. In drug deals and such, your word must be good or you die. On the other hand, to be high in the government or run for office you must lie. The whole thing in politics is to trick the public. I knew when Nixon said " I'm not a crook " that he was going to hide and push more blame off on crooks ... God's justice, Man's justice and Money justice : The people who make the rules make them because they spend their lives running in circles, breaking them...They break all the rules they make, tell lies, cover up and then make a whole new set and so the vortex keeps going. If I could find out what visiting rules were, it would be a neat trick. I see a few cops going by, but it's hard to get anyone to look me in the eye, much less talk for over 30 seconds. Fear and guilt at this level is high. They make me look bad so that it makes them look good.. .the more wrong they do to me, the more they cover up. God's justice comes into play and they have car crashes, broken legs, hearts stop, but money picks up another wave of dish washers and people that can't do much else and if I told you the rules, by the time you got here, they would change them if they didn't like your hat or if you had on shoes that look funny or whatever. Then if you did come, I would be put in chains and lead around where others had no chains.. .by some little five foot tall girl who has been here two weeks or something like that. In short, my life would be put on the line, being led through a mainline handcuffed ... at the same time I'm kept locked up from a mainline, telling the public they worry for my safety. They don't expect all to be lawabiding citizens... that would put them out of work. They need crime and fear to charge the public for protection. It's you who pay for and need protection. And after they lie to you and tell you how bad I am and they feel guilty and feel I'm after them and it's them who need the protection, then I get mad at citizens for paying the crooks to kill me so they can feel safe from their own lies, then it's back to you. It keeps going in a circle until I'm killed, then they go to church and say how God gave his only son. They say we didn't kill C.M., because the judge fucked up on a few little rules. I would have walked out the door, but there was too much money to be made and to convict one asshole for 900 million dollars, they sold the public this mad man and worked to make me into that and destroyed me, and in God's justice it does reflect back in and on the circular wheel that everyone runs on. The news has everyone hating me and trying to kill me. I've been the last chicken in line and each time the circle goes by, it makes more fear, more guilt and all the rules are broken and more madness and when I do die, a new religion and the balance of get backs won't leave much flesh. Man's justice has been lost to money's justice and who won't lie for 400 million dollars? Just one book made $12.50 per copy and that sold 27 million copies times $12.50, not counting paperback and movies, etc. Had I any money, I wouldn't be in a cage but they even passed laws saying I can't make any dollars. - Charles Manson

Manson and ATWA CNN Feature

Corcoran, California (CNN) -- At 75, Charles Manson has spent more than half his life in prison for masterminding the notorious Helter Skelter killing spree that left actress Sharon Tate and six others dead in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969.

Manson spent his 75th birthday this week at the state prison in Corcoran, California, where he is in the protective housing unit. Some records indicate that Manson was born on November 12, but Manson's current associates and other records indicate his birthday was on Wednesday, November 11.
"He spent the day the same way he spends every day in prison," said Terry Thornton, spokeswoman for the state department of corrections. "Lately, the prison has told me, he doesn't come out of his cell very often."
She added that Manson didn't mention his birthday to anyone, and only emerged from his cell for about 20 minutes on Wednesday.
While his appearance has changed significantly from the wide-eyed cult leader who appeared on the cover of Life magazine in 1969, Manson continues to wield influence over some who consider him a wizened messenger.
Prison officials say Manson still gets lots of mail and spends most of his days singing and playing guitar in a high security unit. He also spends time speaking to associates like "Gray Wolf," 60, and "Star," a 24-year-old fast food employee.
Wolf said Manson gave him his name -- just as he named members of his infamous "Family" of followers during the 1960s. Wolf said he moved close to the prison in Corcoran so he could be near the man he believes possesses deep insight into environmental issues.
"Manson thinks the destruction of the environment is much more serious than we are being made out to believe," Wolf told CNN. "Our government keeps covering up problems with pollution, with coal, with automobiles. Charlie says we need to get back to the horse."
Vincent Bugliosi, the man who prosecuted Manson and sent him to prison for life, is not surprised that Manson continues to hold sway over some people.
"This is just a microcosm of the tremendous interest and fascination that people still have with Charles Manson," Bugliosi said. "The Manson Family no longer exists. There's no group calling itself the Manson Family on the outside. And these people -- I wouldn't say they're followers of Manson, that's too strong a word --they're supporters."
Their names and words sound similar to those of Manson's past followers.
Gray believes Manson's time in prison has given him a unique perspective on the environment.
"You can characterize prison as an ashram or a retreat where you have all this time to be by yourself and think and so he's had time to turn these issues over and over in his head," Gray said.
"A legend has been made about Charlie Manson and there's a media image that people make money off of every day, but it has nothing to do with Charlie personally. He is a personable person," he added.
Star also got her name from Manson, and moved from Illinois to be closer to him.
"He's really witty and really sharp and he's got a lot of good humor," she said. "He's got a weird sense of humor but I like it, it fits with me."
The conversations range from small talk about life in prison to issues related to ATWA -- an acronym for Air, Trees, Water, Animals -- the ecological philosophy espoused by Manson and his followers, according to Wolf.
What's really criminal, they say, is the way the environment is being poisoned.
"Crime is anything that's done against your survival. Any sin against your life is crime. The problem is the atmosphere is dying, anything that sins against the air is a sin against your life, anybody that sins against the air should be considered a criminal and any sin against the air should be considered a crime," Manson said in a recorded phone conversation.
In a recent recorded conversation with Star, Manson discussed the flooding in Malaysia:
"They had some bad rains and floods and a lot of people in trouble over there, so we're sending them packages to help take care of them. They are half Muslim and half Christians so we have to hold a balance," he said in a recorded conversation. "The way we live is freedom of religion so we don't want [any] war against people. We want a war against pollution. A war against people isn't going to help anyone, a war against pollution will help everyone."
Star says she was drawn to the man she described as a "monk in a monastery" by his environmental views.
"There's a lot of people all around the world that would say they support Charles Manson and his vision of ATWA," she said.
"The goal, really, the main goal is to basically save life on the planet Earth from the humans," she said. "We have a key to make this goal accomplished, and that key is Charlie Manson."
But Bugliosi says there's a darker attraction to Manson that reaches beyond the green movement.
"There's a certain mystique that has developed around Manson," he said. "And one reason is that the very name Manson has come to be a metaphor for evil. He's come to represent the dark and malignant side of humanity, for whatever reason, people are fascinated by pure, unalloyed evil."
CNN's Emanuella Grinberg and Ann O'Neill contributed to this story.

''...Its just a matter of coming to the realization that everything is NOW... Breathing in... and Breathing out. I've got the whole world breathing in and breathing out. And I've been a hundred million years getting that done. And that's my will. and I'm God. And I don't care if you don't like it, or don't accept it. It doesn't matter. I could drop this body right here and go on and be a thousand stars..." -Charles Manson 
Charles Milles Manson was born today 75 years ago on 11-11-1934 to Ada Kathleen Maddox and William Manson. It is often stated that Manson was born ''No Name Maddox'', this is absolutely false, no record states "No Name Maddox". Charles Manson was born ''Charles Milles Maddox''. 

'I started visiting my mother in jail when I was just barely walking. When she got out she came and got me from a foster home and took me and put me in the boys' school. So I been military raised.''  -Charles Manson 

''My grandfather told my grandmother that -- in World War One -- he was standing on a dead body and he seen a Bible in the guy's pocket. And he reached down and he got the Bible and he opened it up. And there was the man's picture with his wife and his kids, two, three children, you dig? And he had a chain with a cross on it. And he looked at the cross, and he looked down and he seen himself. He said, "What am I doing fighting my brother?" ... He came back and told my Grandmother, "I was fighting my brothers and I don't even know why." -Charles Manson 

Grandson of Charles Milles Maddox, conductor of the B&O Railroad and Nancy Loraine Ingram Maddox, a devout Nazarene Christian, both from Morehead Kentucky. Manson was born during the hardest times of the Great Depression. His mother went to prison for strongarm robery when he was a child so much of his early years were spent with his Granparents in Kentucky and his Aunt and Uncle in West Virginia.

''I'm not surrendering my soul. I'm not surrendering my father. I'm not giving up my dad, you know. My dad drinks scotch whiskey and plays the bagpipes -- does what he wants to do, you know. I ain't gonna surrender that. And they tell me, "Your dad's dead." My dad never dies, man. There ain't no such thing as death.'' - Charles Manson

Manson is a Scottish surname of Viking origin, the anglicised version of the Scandinavian name Magnusson, meaning son of Magnus. Magnus was a common name among the Scandinavian aristocracy. Magnus, meaning "Great" in Latin (i.e. magnificent), gained wider currency during the Middle Ages, when various European nations, and their royal houses, introduced it upon being converted to Latin-speaking Catholic Christianity. This was especially the case with Scandinavian royalty and nobility. As a Scandinavian forename, it was inspired by the ruler of the Franks, Charlemagne whose Latin name was "Carolus Magnus" and understood in Old Norse as magn-hús, "house of might/power". The word ''magnus'' is rooted in the Proto-Indo-European "Mag" which is from where words such as magic, magi, magus, magnitude, magistrate etc. derive.

''...Got Children in the darkness where the highlander rolls, got knights in the battles of the shadows of my soul...'' - Charles Manson

Manson's blood is Scottish and Irish, he is of the Clan Gunn a clan hailing from with northeastern Scotland, in the regions of Caithness, Sutherland and the Orkney Islands. The origins of Clan Gunn stretch over the sea to Norway, as the Clan Gunn themselves are descended from the legendary Sweyn Asleifsson, known as the 'Ultimate Viking' and the progenitor of the clan, his grandson Gunni, is the "namefather" of Clan Gunn. The clan is an armigerous clan, without a chief.
''I'm a military child. All the retired people of all the wars have always raised me. The uniform is my father. So I believed that we had rights in a courtroom, and that all we had to do was take our problems to the judge and he'd fix it. Because I felt that the judge was the authority, was God, was our father, was the military, was the country.'' -Charles Manson 
Today is Veterans Day in the United States of America (and Armistice Day in many parts of the world). Our Fathers, Grandfathers, Great Grandfathers, died in the battlefields to preserve our rights  supposedly guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America. Charles Manson's father died in the battlefield to protect and preserve the rights Manson was not granted when his Constitutional 14th Amendment right to represent himself In Propria Persona was taken away in the People of California v. Manson in 1970.
''You go into a graveyard and look at all the martyrs of the heart, all the men that gave their lives for god and country, and then you come and say, "Where did Charlie go wrong?" Did Charlie go wrong? Or was the ocean of the spiritual movement in the world to bring change to this planet? Did it start before Charlie was born and everybody else was wrong?
The President of the United States is supposedly the leader of us all. Well, you can't pick me for the leader of the family and then give Nixon immunity. He killed a lot more people than Charlie did.'' - Charles Manson
Charles Manson, who's ancestors and family members are on record as fighting in the American Revolution for Independence, the U.S. Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War was denied his Constitutional Right to defend himself in a court of law and subsequently given the death penalty for murders he did not commit and was never accused of committing. The death penalty in the state of California was overturned and Manson was sentenced to  life with possibility of parole.
Charles Manson has been unjustly imprisoned for the last 40 years. Previous to his last release from prison on the Spring Equinox in 1967, Manson had already served 22 years locked behind bars since he set the schoolhouse on fire at 9 years old. He was raised by Veterans of World War I and World War II. At 13 he was placed in the Gibault school for boys, he continued to be placed in several institutions throughout  the 1940's and early 1950's for burglary, car theft and escaping most of the institutions in which he was placed. Some of the places where Manson lived during these times were Natural Bridge Honor Camp , National Training School for Boys in Washington DC, Federal Reformatory, Petersburg Federal Reformatory, Chillicothe Federal Reformatory. Manson was raised primarily by retired veterens who worked in these institutions. President Nixon who declared Manson guilty "directly or indirectly'' was a lawyer and knew what he was doing was illegal.
Manson has served a total of over 62 years in prisons and institutions. More than any living U.S. citizen. He has spent his entire life with rebels, revolutionaries, veterans and warriors, judges and guards. 
He's endured Hell, his rights taken away, his children taken away, his music stolen and destroyed, his ranch burnt down, his mail stolen, his friends forbidden to see him, locked in the hole, poisoned, sprayed with chemicals, beaten, his ribs broken and his teeth knocked out, tied to four-point restraints, set on fire, lied about in the media for 40 years and ripped of by the cursed Hollywood and rock stars.  But Charles Manson has SURVIVED, standing in the fires of eternity. he is universal brother to all men who have given their lives in service to TRUTH, HONOR AND JUSTICE.
Today is the day for honoring Charles Willis Milles Maddox Mac Manson for his sacrifice, struggle, dedication, insight, courage, inspiration, love and for being REAL ON THE WHEEL.
