- To The World UFO Community - A PUBLIC PROTEST
- Linda Moulton Howe again promotes a known UFO hoaxer
who wants to benefit from someone else's hard work
- It has been brought to my attention that Linda Moulton
Howe has published a story on her website Earthfiles.com where she describes
the most important moment in Brazilian Ufology, the disclosure of secret
UFO files by the Brazilian Air Force. Linda Moulton Howe tells the story
with a level of distortion and absence of fact only seen a few years ago
when she defended and promoted a known hoaxer as genuine.
- Here it is: http:
//www.earthfiles.com. I could not believe what I was told and then
I visited Earthfiles.com. To my astonishment and absolute surprise I confirmed
that Linda Moulton Howe once again has produced a very unreliable kind
of journalism and presented completely distorted information as genuine
fact to the international UFO community.
- Despite the fact that the disclosure of secret UFO files
by the Brazilian Air Force was announced weeks ago as an achievement of
the Brazilian Committee of UFO
Researchers (CBU), after 14 very long months of hard work and determination
in promoting the movement UFOs: Freedom of Information Now and the gathering
of 36,000 signatures in a petition, Linda Moulton Howe completely omits
those truly responsible for the successful results of the campaign.
- Despite the fact that hundreds of UFO websites reported
the accurate events leading to the opening of Brazil's military UFO files
and despite the fact that the international UFO community is well aware
of the legitimate info about the : Freedom
of Information Now campaign and its authorship, Linda Moulton Howe
published her story on Earthfiles.com distorting the information and omitting
those actually responsible for the most successful achievement that the
Brazilian UFO researchers reached with an enormous amount of work and sacrifice.
News of the success of the UFOs: Freedom of Information Now campaign has
been circulated to the international UFO community.
- Instead of informing her readers appropriately, Linda
Moulton Howe chose to interview one of the only people in the Brazilian
UFO Community who had absolutely nothing to do with the campaign at all
and who only had, at the last minute, jumped in the boat not as an invited
guest, but only as a shameless opportunist seeking to benefit from somebody
else's hard work. Yes, you guessed right that fellow is Urandir Fernandes
- Linda Moulton Howe's story on her website misleads her
readers to believe that Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira was invited by the
Brazilian military to the meeting that the UFO researchers had with them.
Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira was never invited and he never took part
in the campaign at all, as he is not recognized as a UFO researcher in
Brazil, but seen as a nuisance to the legitimate Brazilian UFO community.
- The UFOs: Freedom of Information Now campaign was launched
in April 2004 as a genuine initiative done exclusively by the Brazilian
Committee of UFO Researchers (CBU) with broad support from the entire Brazilian
UFO Community. After 10 months of very hard work, last January the military
finally acknowledged this movement. The spokesman for the military was
Major Antonio Lorenzo and he contacted UFO researcher and Brazilian UFO
Magazine editor A. J. Gevaerd, inviting him and the entire Committee for
a visit to Brazilian Air Force installations, in Brasilia, de Federal Capital.
- Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira, contrary to Linda Moulton
Howe's story, was never contacted by the military and never invited. However,
when he knew that the meeting was scheduled to May 20, he and a partner
called the Brazilian Air Force department and demanded to be present at
the gathering. As the Brazilian Air Force, as public department, cannot
deny access to someone while open to someone else, he was then accepted
to come, with a visible embarrassment for him and the members of the Committee.
- Contrary to what Linda Moulton Howe believes or wants
her readers to believe, Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira attended the meeting
as an uninvited guest, much to the embarrassment of the Brazilian UFO community.
He asked no questions to the military, took no notes, and made no remarks.
He was not acknowledged at all. Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira did not attend
any of the personal meetings with the military, and he did not analyze
- All Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira and his partner did
was take photos and films and make sure that they would appear in photos
and films made by the members of the Committee and the press, in a incredible
effort to have their faces on the program Fantastico for an interview,
an interview in which Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira refers to Linda Moulton
Howe. The Fantastico program is the very same which, a few years ago, exposed
Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira' hoaxes and his prison under the accusation
of having sold 6,000 pieces of land that did not belong to him.
- Linda Moulton Howe presented Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira
to her readers as if he was some kind of spokesman of the campaign promoted
by the Brazilian UFO researchers, and as if he had played some role in
helping the Brazilian UFO researchers to achieve this historical event.
Instead of helping in any way, Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira only criticized
the campaign in the previous months before it reached its goal of gaining
the cooperation of the Brazilian military. Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira
helped with absolutely nothing. And Linda Moulton Howe presents him as
a person who played an important role in the process. This is a shame and
is insulting to those actually responsible for the success of this very
- I think that I don't have to remind the members of the
international UFO community that a few years ago Linda Moulton Howe visited
Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira's farm in Brazil after Urandir Fernandes
de Oliveira's paid for Linda Moulton Howe's trip. She was delighted to
listen to his fantasy tales of abductions and contacts with aliens. Urandir
Fernandes de Oliveira's claims are largely known delusions or hoaxes. She
listened to no Brazilian UFO researchers, she spoke with no members of
the press or Brazilian UFO community, she did not contact any of a number
of people who could describe to her how Urandir Fernandes de Oliveira fakes
- Instead, Linda Moulton Howe promoted Urandir Fernandes
de Oliveira's absurd tales in the USA, especially the hoax in which he
was supposedly abducted by aliens and tried to convince people of his story
with some burned bed sheets and small burns to the ceiling of a room, through
which he was allegedly taken to a mothership and encountered 39 aliens
races, including Jesus Christ. That hoax is well known to the entire Brazilian
UFO Community, which completely reject his UFO-sect Projeto Portal (Gateway
Project), created during the same time the HeavenZs Gate was created outside
- As the head of the Brazilian Committee of UFO Researchers
(CBU), the group who initiated this campaign for the freedom of information,
in the name of all the other members of such Committee and being the person
who was contacted by the Brazilian military and invited by them for this
very important meeting in Brasilia, I cannot stand for anymore of Linda
Moulton Howe's unreliable journalism and will not allow it or any other
half truths or omissions to destroy or discredit this critical freedom
of information campaign.
- The truth must prevail here at this very important and
historical UFO cooperative effort. The international UFO community must
move forward and we all must realize that there is no more room for lies,
distortions, and opportunists who do nothing and criticize the ones who
