An Embassy to welcome an extraterrestrial civilization: the Raelians will file a formal application to the Canadian Government!

On Wednesday, June 4, 2014, representatives of the International Raelian Movement in Canada will officially hand over the project file for the construction of the Embassy of Elohim to the Canadian Government.

After seven refusals for the State of Israel to answer the request of the Raelian Movement, RAEL decided in 2000 to offer the opportunity to host this historic project to all countries of the world!

The file we will give to Prime Minister Harper, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Minister of National Defence and the Minister of Finance includes two main sections. The first is a request for a Lot Of Land, 4 square kilometers in Canada and the second is a request to grant extraterritoriality, as for all Embassies in the world“, declared Daniel Turcotte, RAEL’s assistant for the Embassy project.

Raelians will celebrate ‘International Day of Paradism’, May 1, to promote a world without work or money.

LAS VEGAS, May 1 – For the 3rd consecutive year, Raelians will join Paradist movements around the world in celebrating May 1 as the International Day of Paradism. They will also participate peacefully in demonstrations set to take place on Labor Day.

Several years ago, Rael, founder and leader of the International Raelian Movement, initiated a societal system called Paradism to give the world a way out of its present capitalist system based on scarcity.

“Paradism is the only way out of the current situation, in which only a few [people] own 99 percent of the world’s wealth,” Rael wrote at the time. “Under Paradism, all new technologies will be used without any workforce or money, and all products will be distributed freely to all human beings.”

“Paradism parties have since been created in a number of countries to denounce ineffective policies aimed at fighting unemployment,” explained Raelian Guide Jarel, leader of the International Paradism party, in a statement released today. “Technology must continue and be further developed to free people from their forced labor [paid employment] and bring forth the leisure-based society that is Paradism. When all work can be done in the future by robots, human beings will be free to do what they like: create, meditate and have fun. This will be a real paradise on earth, which is the basis of its name, ‘Paradism.’”

For Raelians, such Paradism-based society without work is unavoidable.

The Raelian Movement explains the many recent UFO sightings in Canada

Montreal, March 26, 2014 – According to Chris Rutkowski, director of UFOlogy Research of Manitoba, a considerable number of Canadians have reported being the witness of a UFO sighting last year. In fact, UFOs have been reported in record numbers unequalled in 25 years. Mr. Rutkowski explained this phenomenon by suggesting that, “Perhaps, more people are simply searching for divine answers and catching a glimpse of something else.” Another possibility, as he explained, could be because “The downturn in the economy is leading to an increased desire by some people to look skyward for assistance.” Although this suggestion by Mr. Rutkowski is interesting, Raelians see it more as an apocalyptic sign.

Daniel Turcotte, leader of the Canadian Raelian Movement asserted, “This increase in UFO sightings only confirms our religious writings in which it is clearly stated that the Elohim of the Bible – the extraterrestrial scientists who created all life on earth – would be making increased appearances “to see the reactions of public authorities, governments, and the press.” In the message the Elohim gave to humanity through their messenger, Rael, they say: The only help we will give you will be to appear in the skies more and more frequently from now on in order to make people aware (…) and make them want to learn more about the truth that you are transmitting. Gradually, thanks to these increased sightings, public awareness will also increase and our presence will no longer trigger stupid adoration, but instead a deep desire within the population to make contact with us.”Read More

Canadian Raelians in support of Clitoraid

In support of Clitoraid the Raelians of Canada demonstrated in front of The Embassy and Consulates of Burkina Faso

On Friday, March 7, Raelians in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver offered their support to Clitoraid, outraged of being denied a permit to operate the African hospital yet it meets all the necessary requirements.

“Most of us have given several hours of our time for years to open this wonderful hospital dedicated to repair for free the harm done to millions of women who do not have the means to regain their integrity and dignity”, said Hélène Munger, Clitoraid representative in Ottawa. “Despite the silence in response to our request to officially meet with The Ambassador, this morning the latter accepted our letter in person. Surrounded by a dozen people, The Ambassador explained that Clitoraid had to follow certain steps to get the license and that it was not in any way a religious discrimination. He added that his Government is doing everything possible to stop the excision, but he seemed not to feel at ease”.

Both Quebec and Canadian Governments should ban circumcision

MONTREAL, Oct. 14, 2013 – Rael, Spiritual Leader of the International Raelian Movement (IRM), expressed last week his support for a Council of Europe resolution that refers to male circumcision as “a violation of the physical integrity of children” and also called upon nations to reach “a consensus on the rights of children to protect them against violations of their physical integrity according to human rights standards”. In his statement, Rael also commented on the oral suction practiced by ultra-Orthodox rabbis.

“Circumcision is a genital mutilation and which does not call for any debate”, declared Marc Rivard, Raelian Bishop. “And what’s even worse is that it’s performed on babies, who can’t refuse it. Furthermore, it has been proven that circumcision damages the future sexual lives of the babies”, he added.

He also pointed out that the practice causes additional subsequent harm as the circumcised infants grow up.

Raelian Movement opposes purchase of any fighter aircraft by Canadian government; Favors investment in peaceful research and technology as alternative

MONTREAL, Dec. 18, 2012 – The Canadian government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, recently announced that it will review its decision to acquire a fleet of F-35 fighter aircraft. In addition, it will look at other sources to reduce the costs of acquisition and maintenance, projected to exceed $40 billion for the lifespan of the project.

“Although the Raelian Movement welcomes the decision to postpone the purchase, this step doesn’t go far enough and it also doesn’t address the fundamental question,” said Andre Julien, spokesman for the Raelian Movement of Canada.

”Why even buy one?” Julien asked. “We don’t need any fighter aircraft. We have no real enemies for except for those we decide to create for ourselves, as we did in Afghanistan and Libya when we participated in the wars there. Therefore, the debate shouldn’t focus on which aircraft to buy and at what cost. It should focus on what peaceful technologies we should develop instead.”

Rael: A Catholic Mohawk is a traitor to his forefathers

MONTREAL, Nov. 2, 2012 – “The beatification of the Mohawk Kateri Tekakwitha, canonized by Pope Benoit XVI, is a true insult toward the Mohawk forefathers,” said Rodolf Samson, spokesperson of the Canadian Raelian Movement with the First Nations, following the beatification announcement.
“They were forced to convert [to Catholicism] by disavowing all their ancestral values and culture, destroying every facet of their way of life.”

Samson went on to explain how the injustice wrought by the Catholic Church continues today.

“Today the Mohawk people are seeing themselves sanctified by their torturers, and it’s very instructive to see that some Mohawks are even now joining the ranks of this criminal religious institution,” he said. “And they do so even though they’re aware of the terrors committed against their ancestors.”

The Raelian Movement of Canada intensifies its support towards the autochthonous and indigenous people to return to their traditional spiritual practices

MONTREAL, Oct. 29, 2012 – “It’s been more than 15 years since the ‘Truth and reconciliation commission of Canada’ was created to the reoccurring problems of physical and sexual abuse in christian schools, and still no concrete actions have been taken” declares Rodolf Samson, spokesman for the Raelian Movement of Canada with the First Nations.

“Numerous autochthonous and indigenous school children recall having been beaten for having used their native tongue and have lost contact with their parents and culture. This inheritance of abuse and isolation was mentioned by the First Nations’ leaders as being the first cause of the epidemic of alcoholism and narcotic use that devastates natives and their reservations.”

Following the report of the Commission on February 24th, 2012, Rael, spiritual leader of International Raelian Movement, expressed his surprise with the timid proposals that were made from this Commission.
