Statement of Fact by Shaun McGee aka arclight 3rd December 2016
I am writing this Statement of Fact partly because of the new UK Criminal Investigatory Bill that has been enacted in the UK.
The triggers for this statement are manifold but I wish to concentrate this statement on the situation concerning Dr Chris Busby because of recent attacks and doubts as to the veracity and honesty as to his character.
First to give some context I would like to go back to 2011 and the Fukushima nuclear disaster. I do this because a colleague @AAClearinghouse and I were discussing Dr Chris Busby via Twitter and I was asked to explain in greater detail the Wikileaks STRATFor files connection with Dr Busby.
In these released internal documents it was revealed that STRATfor internal security files were discussing the UK anti nuclear movement after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. In the email in question I found that they were worried about the strength of the UK anti nuclear movement and that they should keep a close eye on the activists involved with this movement. One could assume that this corporation was sharing information with the police and security services within the UK. I might also posit that some actions would result from this to defuse the reported strength of this movement and lessen the impact of anti nuclear activities.
Of course a posit is just a hypothesis and not a fact and so some evidence would need to be found to corroborate it.
So where is this evidence?
As a researcher and blogger to some of the bigger online anti nuclear platforms I had the benefit of an overview on this situation. Because of my overview and areas of research I drew the attention of the Police/security services sometime in 2011 and suspected that I was placed on a domestic extremist list. Over the following 2 years I had many incidents occur where eventually it got to the point that I had to leave the UK and go to my families home country of Ireland leaving behind my home, friends, family and work. This is just a summary of my situation.
After the revelations of Snowden and Assange it became clear to most that my experiences that I had documented over the years were less likely the ramblings of paranoia and more likely the truth. Adding this to the Wikileaks STRATFor email, in fact it was becoming clear that my experiences were part of a more comprehensive operation in the UK and actually beyond the UK also.
There were very high profile attacks on Dr Busby as well by George Monbiot and The guardian Newspaper (The same newspaper that was threatened by the UK Government with closure if it did not conform). The claims made by Mr Monbiot were rebuffed but the Guardian did not give Dr Busby a fair chance to rebuff this on their newspaper which left the wider public with the impression that he had not rebuffed Monbiots claims. And it did not stop there.
One of the ways I did research was to engage the many pro nuclear posters on the Guardian, Japan Times etc and it became clear fairly quickly that there was a co-ordinated social media campaign by highly specialised nuclear health technicians from both the UK and the USA (depending on the time zone and time of day). Indeed I even had personal correspondence with some of the more high profile ones and learnt a lot about nuclear energy and politics from them. The specialists also targeted journalists such as John Simpson who did a report on Depleted Uranium health effects in Fallujah but John Simpson was reported to have said in a later interview that even though these specialists had put alot of pressure on him trying to convince him that no such health effects could exist he reported it anyway, believing what he saw with his own eyes on the ground. George Monbiot may have had similar pressure put on him if he was not directly working for one of the myriad UK based security companies. In fact John Simpson said that that report was one of his finest achievements in his long and exemplary career.
The public attacks on Chris Busby are well documented over the past 5 years or so and have sidelined one of the greatest minds in the anti nuclear movement. Other great minds have been also targeted and the anti nuclear movement in the UK (Pre Corbyn) were unable to gather much more than a couple of hundred people for protests with no supporting media coverage to increase the damage done to the anti nuclear community.
So why did they target Dr Busby?
I think that the MOD is very concerned about his legal arguments against the ICRP dose model and the evidence he uncovered that shows the ICRP dose model was corrupted in 1973 when the control group from the Hiroshima study was replaced and caused the allowable dose limits to increase so that nuclear chemical process`s such as decommissioning and nuclear bomb manufacture could go ahead. It may also have implications to nuclear related medicine use etc. And of course it is not just the UK but the USA military that has much to lose
And how did they target Dr Busby?
I have listed some of that above but now i would like to make a personal statement concerning the short time I have spent with him and the experiences i have witnessed. My first interactions with Dr Busby began as a blogger after the Fukushima disaster. I noticed the attacks on Dr Busby and dug into the claims and heard his rebuff on the LLRC website. After assessing all the data I found Monbiots claim lacking veracity. I decided with a colleague called missmilkytheclown on YouTube to promote his videos. Quite quickly we released that sharing and promoting his videos were problematic. We had so many problems uploading his videos that it became quite clear to us that someone somewhere did not appreciate our efforts. We carried on and spent many hours on a project instead of minutes. Computer hacking , internet being switched off, email interception and as I explained many pro nuclear commenter’s connected to the specialist nuclear health group I wrote about earlier in this article (Google Roger Helbig as an example of such a specialist)
Some personal observations with Dr Busby I observed
To expand on the evidence a bit that i have already outlined I will talk about the 200 Japanese anti nuclear activists living in the UK. I have documented one such attack on an encrypted email server here; https://nuclear-news.net/2014/03/01/riseup-net-encryption-broken-japanese-against-nuclear-uk-januk-and-uk-activists-targetted-with-corrections/
Also, I had a personal friend from this group that I helped transle articles from Japanese to English. I should mention that many Japanese who translated information into English were similarly targeted such as Tokyobrowntabby to name but one (based in Japan) and my co translator friend was also targeted in the UK using cyber attacks (deleting email accounts, blocking internet access and warned verbally by an ex MI5 employee to stop her research, which after many more cyber incidents she conceded to the request).

I might point out that during this time I was under heavy cyber attack with internet and mobile phone disconnections. When I was staying at Dr Busby`s home, after being made homeless by the Security Services I made the decision to leave the UK as my position there was untenable.
Dr Busby kindly offered to give me some money to aid my move and the he was waiting for some money to hit his account from the sale of part of his home (to pay his debts because of the drop in income due to the campaign against him). He had a little money left and he was going to give some of this to me because he could see the situation I was in. The money transfer was interrupted within the banking system (that was supposed to be secure I thought) and there is a Bank Manager and solicitor in Wales that witnessed this unique incident as did I). The money eventually reappeared after many queries were made.
I could go on, but for the sake of brevity i will finish with this brief statement of fact;
Earlier his year (2016) I went to help Dr Busby move from his home for a week whilst he was preparing for the British Nuclear Test Veterans case.
I witnessed the disruption of evidence that was destined for the High court (2 attempts at sending an email from different people were blocked and never reached the High Court) and at the same time my Irish mobile phone was disconnected at the UK end but was reconnected just before I returned to Ireland.
Other people that I suspect or know were targeted to some degree or other with were UK based independent nuclear experts working for NGO`s, Richard Bramhall (Of the Bradwell governmental steering committee who was still in talks on behalf of the group with DECC even though they had already released its final findings quietly on the UK government public website), NETPOL who was working on the Pitchford Inquiry here, Naomi Wolf (Author) on her Facebook account and Mari Takenouchi (email interfered with) Independent Japanese Journalist.
