MARY HUDDLE, et al., Plaintiffs, v. Civil Action No. 88-3130 JHG RONALD WILSON REAGAN, et al., Defendants.
I, Concepcion Picciotto hereby declare under penalty of perjury that the following is true:
1. The government is misleading by saying my activities in front of the White House and at Lafayette Park are not an exer- cise of my religious beliefs.
2. Since I can remember I liked to believe that God is expressed by Humanity, Freedom and Justice.
3. Therefore it is my religious belief that nuclear weapons are immoral and should be wiped away from the surface of the earth, as well as chemical weapons and neutron bombs.
4. I believe that God has chosen me as His messanger to spread the word to the world that the only way we can insure peace is through "Justice," not strength.
5. Back in 1981 when I began my vigil in front of the gates of the White House, I met Mr. William Thomas. After speaking with him I found that we had very much in common.
6. Thomas was reading and discoursing on chapters of the Bible. He wrote many essays about God, humanity and the immorality of the nuclear arms. Because we had very much in common by working together, I believe we are both working for God.
7. I have learned a lot from him. I believe that God has placed us both at the White House to communicate what the Lord inspires, and to help humanity.
8. For the government to say I am trying to hide behind religious beliefs that are newly-found is not true.
Under penalty of perjury,
