We urgently need your help. Long Island UFO Network Chairman John Ford was railroaded by the Suffolk County Government of New York simply because he came too close to uncovering the infamous South Haven Park UFO crash and the illegal toxic waste dumping taking place in many parts of Suffolk County. Targeted by a level of corruption that would put anyone in a state of utter shock and disgust, John Ford has been a political prisoner at the MID-HUDSON FORENSIC PSYCHIATRIC CENTER in New Hampton, New York. This is a critical matter that directly affects everyone’s individual civil rights. Join this grassroots movement. Help Free John Ford Now – Tell New York to End the illegal, illegitimate and highly unethical imprisonment of John Ford. Sign this petition today and spread it around. Ask everyone you know to sign it.
