Associated Press article spotlights VeriChip controversy
Hello to CASPIAN members and friends:
The VeriChip battle is heating up! The Associated Press published a feature article today on the human implant controversy that is appearing on newsstands across America:
Chips: High tech aids or tracking tools?
By Todd Lewan, AP National Writer
July 22, 2007
The article is highlighted on the Drudge Report and is printed in over 200 newspapers and news outlets around the country, including USA Today, Business Week, Forbes, Fox News, and the Washington Post.
Major papers in Houston, Seattle, Denver, San Jose, Charlotte, Chicago, Kansas City, Miami, and more have picked up the story. It has even reached the UK Guardian newspaper and outlets in Canada and Australia. For a partial list, see:
The article features a full color photo of our anti-chipping protest in West Palm Beach, Florida and a link to our new http://www.AntiChips.com website. It also features quotes by me and my Spychips co-author Liz McIntyre, and mentions our book, "Spychips: How major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Move with RFID."
I spoke with Todd Lewan, the AP reporter who wrote the story, and told him everything we know about the downsides of the VeriChip Corporation and its dangerous, Big Brother plans to chip the public. (Liz and I have been posting these stories on our Spychips.com website for several years at http://www.spychips.com/press.html) . Mr. Lewan independently verified many of our concerns and discussed them in the article.
Back in May after our West Palm Beach protest, I asked you all to be patient, as the truth about the VeriChip would soon be coming out. Now our efforts to alert the public are beginning to bear fruit.
Sit tight. This is just the start of the backlash.
