SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: THE PEOPLE'S RALLY AT AREA 51 ON JUNE 6,
1998 The People's Rally at AREA 51 will take place as scheduled
on Saturday, June 6, 1998, right at the restricted boundary line
on Groom Lake Road, as previously announced in the newsgroups.
This will be a legal, public assembly and will take place on
legal, public land. The event will be a spontaneous, peaceful
gathering of concerned citizens.
One of the purposes of the gathering will be to bring to the
attention of the news media once again the plight of former Groom
Lake workers who are still suffering from illnesses caused by
long-term exposure to highly toxic chemicals without their
knowledge while working at AREA 51, the base that officially
"doesn't exist". The former workers and their families' plea is
not so much to seek for monetary compensation as to seek for
cures to the diseases. There are no specific organizations behind
this event. Inquiries regarding the event are still coming in
from many states in the U.S., as well as from England, New
Zealand, Canada and Australia and other countries. Quite a number
of people may already be camping out overnight on Friday, June 5
at the site. The news media will show up to cover the event,
depending on how much publicity will be generated prior to the
event. (There will be a press conference on Friday, June 5 in
Rachel, Nevada) The event will start at 6 a.m. on Saturday, June
6, at the restricted boundary, and will last till about 11 a.m.
That Saturday evening, there will be a music festival in Rachel.
For the June 6 rally, each participant is suggested to bring a
mirror (of any kind ....... the larger the better) to the event.
All vehicles are to be parked off Groom Lake Road. Lincoln County
Sheriff Dept. will not allow any vehicle to be parked on the dirt
road for the event. Also, early on Sunday morning, June 7, there
will be a hike up to the ridges of Tickaboo Mountain to observe
the Groom Lake facility. This particular hike may be a
littlestrenuous since this time it will not originate from the
Alamo side, but will be from the west foothills, a direct
"frontal assault" on the mountains from the Tickaboo Valley
side.

Sincerely, Norio Hayakawa GroomWatch@aol.com P.S. The People's
Rally at AREA 51 will also be held on June 6, 1999 as well as
June 6, 2000.

Both a mirror and flashlight (with extra batteries)
seem useful.  As to exactly how close anyone wants to get to area
51 or area s-4, that will be up to the individual.

There is no substance whatsoever to the ridiculous rumor that
AREA 51 and its operations were abandoned and were located
elsewhere, such as to Utah. Basically, this rumor had originated
from what appeared to be a disinformative article that first
appeared in the June, 1997 issue of POPULAR MECHANICS.

The unexpected article no doubt was greatly "appreciated" by
Nellis AFB and particularly those at the "remote operating base"
at Groom Lake, Nevada. The folks at Nellis AFB probably rolled on
floor laughing over the article, which was for the most part
filled with factual errors, much to their absolute delight!! The
June, 1997, POPULAR MECHANICS piece also must have brought much
delight to the then Secretary of the Air Force, Sheila Widnall.
It is my hope that this type of misinformed article did not serve
to curtail the general public's interest in and rightful scrutiny
of AREA 51 (Groom Lake Complexes), particularly in regards to
those issues relative to the alleged infractions of environmental
statutes at the site. The article, written by Jim Wilson, science
editor of POPULAR MECHANICS, inferred that "the Air Force had
abandoned top-secret testing at its once most secret test site".
Then Wilson came to the hasty conclusion and stated that "we know
why and we know where they moved to (i.e., Utah)". Nothing is
farther from the truth than this overly generalized inference.
Jim Wilson, despite his probable sincerity and good intentions,
obviously missed the whole picture.

To begin with, he obviously took a wrong turn on "Groom Lake dirt
road" and went to a location that had very little to do with AREA
51.
It was obvious from the photo that what he did was go south on
the "Mail Box dirt road" from Hwy 375, crossed the "Groom Lake
dirt road" and went further south all the way till he encountered
an old, poorly maintained wind fence, believing that he had
arrived at the back gate of AREA 51, when in reality he had
arrived at the northeastern boundary of Range 61. There he
decided that nothing was happening at AREA 51, and made a hasty
statement, saying "the 'cammo dudes' are no longer patrolling the
perimeter of AREA 51" and further rashly stated that "what we
found was a securely locked wind fence that appears to have been
undisturbed for months". He further commented that even though he
had arrived at the back door to AREA 51, there was "no guard
post". Brilliant!! (There never was any.....ever at that
location!!).
He also stated in the article that the "warning signs flanking
the gate aren't very threatening either"...........(The reason
for that is because there never existed any "threatening" warning
signs there except the sign that says NO TRESPASSING...... Nellis
Bombing Range).
It is because that location is not AREA 51.......it is merely the
northeastern boundary of Range 61. Wilson then came to the
stunning conclusion that "AREA 51 has shut down !!". Again, a
brilliant conclusion!! I suggest next time that he go to the
right location......towards the real Guard Shack area......(west
all the way on Groom Lake road).....where he may really encounter
the "cammo dudes", white Jeep Cherokees and perhaps a Blackhawk
chopper or two to welcome him, if he dare go to the Guard Shack
area. He would also see some real "threatening" warning signs
along the dirt road that clearly say LETHAL FORCE WILL BE USED.

From what I understand from several reliable sources, Groom Lake
has not had a major lessening of activity whatsoever. In fact
there may be more going on NOW at Groom Lake than before. In
October of 1997, I observed the Groom Lake facility from high
atop Tickaboo Peak and verified with my own eyes that the
facility is not only there but even thought that there may be
slightly more structures out there than before! A couple of new
water tanks seem to have been added recently behind the big
hangar area. Also, deducing from a fairly recent, highly-detailed
panoramic photo that I acquired (allegedly taken several months
after the closure of both the Freedom Ridge and White Sides), I
have no doubt that there are some new constructions going on,
particularly along the southwest slope next to Groom Lake. (I had
observed the Groom Lake facility a number of times before from
both the White Sides hill and the Freedom Ridge before those
hills became off-limits to the public). Also, the night prior to
the day that I climbed the Tickaboo Peak in October of 1997, we
were standing at the exact spot where Jim Wilson had stood.....at
around 7:30 p.m., at the northeastern boundary of Range 61. As we
were looking towards the direction of Groom Lake, we were
surprised by a sudden illumination of the sky just over the
direction of Groom Lake and witnessed around 3 or 4 reddish
"balls" of light that appeared over the direction of Groom Lake
and then disappeared momentarily, after which the sky over that
area returned to total darkness. I could not speculate what those
reddish "balls" of light were.......(different from the usual
military aircraft flares that I had seen many times near AREA
51)........but his went on intermittently for about three times
during the next 20 minutes or so. There was no doubt that there
was activity of some kind that night at Groom Lake. This was in
stark contrast to the allegation by Jim Wilson that nothing is
going on at AREA 51 and that nothing was going on when he was
standing at the northeastern boundary of Range 61, looking
towards the Groom Mountains. Probably nothing major was going on
that was visible in the sky over Groom Lake on that particular
day or evening when he was there. Moreover, we must bear in mind
that most sensitive programs are thought to be conducted below
ground level, to begin with.

Primarily because of the (probably inadvertent) misinformative
article from the June, 1997, POPULAR MECHANICS, the whole world
seemed to have gotten the impression that there is nothing going
on at AREA 51, and that everything had moved to the Green River
Missile Launch "complex" in Utah. One of the erroneous facts that
Jim Wilson mentioned in the June, 1997, POPULAR MECHANICS article
was that there was an "officially named Area 6413" in Utah. There
is no "officially name Area 6413" in Utah. What he meant to say
was Restricted Air Space 6413 in Utah. However, it is my
understanding that even to this date, anyone can easily get right
next to the Green River Missile Lauch "complex". I highly doubt
that there is anything top-secret going on over there. Rather
than the Green River Missile Launch "complex" (which Jim Wilson
seemed to have inferred as the possible site of the New AREA 51),
we should keep a closer watch on the new "non-lethal" weapons
programs as well as the new "bacteriological warfare programs"
going on at Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah. It is, by far, more
"interesting" there than the Green River area!! All in all, the
June, 1997, POPULAR MECHANICS article was in such a drastic
contrast to the more substantial article that coincidentally
appeared one month prior, in the May, 1997 issue of POPULAR
SCIENCE in which Groom Lake was mentioned several times, with an
inference that there was still plenty going on at Groom Lake.

Some of the ongoing programs at AREA 51, according to reports
from the Monitoring Times and other publications, seem to include
a new series of B-2 follow-on by Northrop/Grumman at S-2,
possible newer versions of Darkstar (Tier 3 - UAV) by Lockheed at
S-4 and Tier 2+ and Tier 3+ UAVs at S-9 by such as Teledyne Ryan
Aero. In June of 1997, after the article appeared on POPULAR
MECHANICS, I was informed that some new components of new,
small-scale VOTL produced by Lockheed had just been transferred
to Groom from Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, California.
There is no doubt that there are new generations of Unmanned
Aerial Vehicles (UAVs - remote controlled surveillance platforms,
some of which may be oval shaped, etc.) being tested at Groom
Lake. New testing of "skins" for outer coating for a new
generation of stealth programs is going on as well, as inferred
by the May, 1997 issue of POPULAR SCIENCE. A new generation of
"electro-chromic panels" are probably continuing to be tested at
the facility. A move towards "daytime" stealth capability (such
as through the use of special sensors for transmission of image
reflections of the background environment on the lower as well as
upper bodies of the aircraft) may be in the works at AREA 51. I
would not be surprised at all if they were working on such as
limited tri- dimensional holographic image maximization that
could be integrated with the "electro chromic panels" not only
used to reflect background environment on the aircraft to bring
about "transparency effect" but also to bring about some
distorted image size of the aircraft. All this, in addition to
several new black, triangular aircraft (such as the alleged TR-3A
Black Manta) that they may be working on.

Anyway, the point is that there may indeed be some new programs
going on in Utah and elsewhere, but to infer that AREA 51 "moved"
to Utah is totally unfounded.
