I have been arrested six times since starting my Love the Earth Protect the Earth Change Everything Campaign in July of 2011:(1)
July 2011 trespass charge for speaking out in the outdoor plaza of the
James Hanley Federal Building in Syracuse about industrial
contaminants in animal fats; (2) October 13, 2011, criminal trespass,
resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for continuing speaking to St.
Lawrence County Administrator Karen St. Hilaire after she stated that
she would not debate the difference between breast cancer detection
and breast cancer prevention with me; (3) November 2011 trespass for
standing silently inside the United States Post Office in the Village
of Potsdam with a three-fold display board message that stated, "POPs
Cause Cancer"; (4) July 2012 trespass for placing a three-fold display
board with the message stated above on a bench at the Parishville Town
Park and dancing at the far end of the beach; (5) September 2012
disorderly conduct for dancing and speaking out about POPs
contamination of the food supply and the failure of government to
provide warning of this avoidable health hazard resulting from
corporate control of government on Washington Street in Watertown; (6)
October 24, 2012 trespass for handing out leaflets on the subject of
persistent organic pollutants (POPs) exposure minimization inside the
main lobby of the Massena Memorial Hospital. All charges have been
dismissed except for the disorderly conduct charge that arose from the
dialogue with County Administrator St. Hilaire. I plead guilty to
disorderly conduct because I said "Frack" to the New York State Court
Security Officer that pushed me out of a public room into the public
hallway and then pushed me down on a public bench in the St. Lawrence
The only two charges that have not been disposed of are the disorderly
conduct charge stemming from the Watertown incident and the trespass
charge that resulted from the educational endeavor inside the Massena
Memorial Hospital. I will beat both of these charges because the
Constitution trumps all laws and regulations. I was speaking freely
and loudly on the Watertown sidewalk in front of City Hall and I was
quietly handing out cancer prevention pamphlets inside the Massena
Memorial Hospital, a public place that is owned by the Town of
Massena. I have the right to freedom of speech on the sidewalk in
Watertown and inside the lobby of the Massena Memorial Hospital
because these are public places.
I love speaking freely when every time I do it the Truth becomes more
fully part of these days of our lives. I love standing up to the
authorities because it is a way of confronting them on their bad
behaviors that have resulted in the out of control use of chemicals
that led to the contamination of the food supply and the epidemics of
cancer, heart disease and type-2 diabetes.

Also, there are allegations that i smuggled illegal aliens in my grizzly Adam's beard, but those are false.

This is a stellar letter to the editor. Lynn McMannis presents the Truth of government efforts to silence the messenger who speaks the words of condemnation against bad corporate people who have carelessly poisoned the Earth and bad government people who have made little or no attempt to stop them or hold them accountable. Here is my friends letter. The good, strong American people will continue to stand up against the bad corporate and bad government people. This is an important front in the New American Revolution.
I am writing to thank Don Hassig for his many years of effort to
protect public health by increasing awareness of persistent organic
pollutants (POPs) and their connection to cancer and many other
With scientific evidence accumulating to support his claims, Don
decided to make a run for US Congress on the Green Party line as a
vehicle to keep this vital information in the publics mind.
When putting forth ideas that the political establishment wants
suppressed, you can expect ad hominem attacks, character
assassination, and exclusion from debates and media coverage. That is
what Don experienced!
There is an old saying pertaining to child rearing that extrapolates
to our rigged political system: A child would rather be praised than
punished, but they would rather be punished than ignored. So whats a
non-violent activist to do when being ignored and marginalized? You
refuse to be ignored to the point of being arrested and Don has
suffered a number of principled arrests for refusing to relinquish his
first amendment rights to speak about the dangers of POPs.
If you take the time to educate yourself, you will find that, if
anything, it is even worse than what Don has been saying. We are
swimming in a soup of 100,000 man-made chemicals that have not been
adequately tested for health effects.
The NIH, FDA, NCI, ACS, Farm Bureau, etc., that you might suppose are
looking out for your best interests are, in fact, covering up the
pandemic of diseases and suffering that are caused by POPs. These
agencies and charities are quite simply controlled by the corporations
they are supposed to regulate!
I am invoking my R.N. degree for whatever credit that gives me: you
should understand that they dont teach about POPs in most
establishment medical schools. CNN, FOX News, and the NY Times also
wont give you a clue. I learned about these issues on my own by
As our vice president would say,This is a BFD. We are being
systematically poisoned and sacrificed on the altar of Profit and
Greed. Corporations are allowed to dump their toxic waste because it
would cut down the CEOs outrageous salaries to properly clean up
Dr. Samuel Epstein, emeritus professor of Environmental Medicine at
the University of Illinois School of Public Health says the incidence
of cancer has escalated to epidemic proportions, now striking nearly
one in two men and over one in every three women in their lifetimes.
Even more disturbing is the recent recognition that this very high
incidence of cancer is going to increase further still, and by the
year 2050, it will double the current very high incidence rate.
He further states,The petrochemical companies and other industries
have contaminated our environment air, water, workplaces, and
foodstuffs with a wide range of petrochemicals and other
carcinogens. They have done this knowing full well that these
chemicals are carcinogenic.
Instead of shooting the messenger (or throwing him in jail) we would
be better served to confront this depraved indifference to life with a
society-wide dialogue about the facts. Start with
Thanks again Don Hassig for reminding us that this is a BFD.

Tax Payer is right on. St. Lawrence County Administrator St. Hilaire and Dr. Susan Hathaway Director of the St. Lawrence County Public Health Department are trying to silence my protestations regarding the less than satisfactory role that Dr. Hathaway has taken on cancer prevention. Dr. Susan Hathaway has lied about the role of chemical exposure in cancer causation. She has failed in her responsibility to use scientific knowledge to protect public health. It is clear that she is a pawn of the petro-chemical industry. If she is unable to speak truthfully about the major role of exposure to chemical carcinogens in cancer causation, then she must be terminated in her employment as head of the Public Health Department.
