Updated complaint to the UN: Revised paragraphs 1-2

Part 1: Are we 'domestic extremists'? Metropolitan Police Service acknowledges receipt of Declan's request to know if he is on police databases

Revised paragraphs 1-2:

A. Information Concerning the Applicant of the Communication

1. The Applicant in this Communication is Declan Heavey, a citizen of the Republic of Ireland who lives in London in the United Kingdom. He was born on 4 September 1960 and is a former teacher. His wife is a naturalized Irish citizen born on 26 March 1965 in Madrid in Spain. She is a former psychologist and lives with the Applicant in London. They have no children. After moving to the United Kingdom in August 2003, the Applicant founded the Network for Church Monitoring (N4CM), a non-profit he registered as a company limited by guarantee in January 2011. He is currently employed as the Managing Director of N4CM, and his wife as the Webmaster of N4CM's Church and State website at churchandstate.org.uk. In 2014, N4CM's Church and State Press published two e-books; the second e-book, The Family Planning Fiasco: How the Vatican Subverted Family Planning in the Developing World by veteran senior development official Dr Dieter Ehrhardt, has been described by Dr Halfdan Mahler, WHO Director-General 1972-1988, as "consistent with my own life experience with population and should be read by everyone concerned with the future of the planet".

2. The Applicant and his wife were forced to sleep rough on the streets of London for almost four years in total, from 4 November 2006 to 13 July 2009 (see paragraphs 20-22 below) and from 14 April 2013 to 15 May 2014 (see paragraphs 23-26 below). This notwithstanding that participants in Church and State include 39 Nobel Prize winners, 13 US National Medal of Science winners, seven prominent members of the UK's House of Lords, and hundreds of distinguished scholars from around the world. Before the Applicant and his wife were made street homeless for the second time, having been evicted from a 'safe house' on 14 March 2013 (see paragraph 8 below), they were nominated for the US-based Population Institute's Global Media Award 2013 for a website described by one of the two nominators as "the most important cutting edge population website ever created" (see Annex 1, Declan and Lola Heavey: Global Media Award Nominees, p. 18).

Prof Milton P Siegel, who for 24 years was the Assistant Director-General of the World Health Organization, speaks to our Chairman Dr Stephen D Mumford in 1992 to reveal that although there was a consensus that overpopulation was a grave public health threat and would be a major cause of preventable death not too far in the future, the Vatican successfully fought off the incorporation of family planning and birth control into official WHO policy. This video is available for public viewing for the first time. Read the full transcript of the interview here.

Dr Stephen D Mumford: "One of the bleakest facts of this century has been the unchecked growth in world population, with its resulting strain on the planet’s life-support systems and misery for countless millions of human beings. This represents an ethical failure of catastrophic proportions on the part of the peoples of the democratic West who, while providing the medical and agricultural advances which make it feasible for all people to live longer, healthier lives, have at the same time allowed their governments to be manipulated by the Vatican and other religious interests to block effective dissemination of the knowledge and use of population-growth-control measures. As documented in [the video above], the source of this calamity is to be found in the early days of the United Nations Organization, when the Western democracies that controlled the agenda of such UNO agencies as the fledgling World Health Organization caved in to political pressure from the Vatican out of fear of its influence on their Catholic voters. In today’s more secular Western democracies, the power of the Vatican to control the votes of its adherents is much diminished. However, we can see that on questions such as population-growth-control, this decrease in Vatican political power is offset in the United States by the increased power of fundamentalist Protestantism and on the international scene by rising fundamentalist Islam."
