The Trustees of the Foundation take great pleasure in announcing the establishment of a private association, NGO, the International Peace Research Institute. The purpose of the institute is to further the intention expressed through our International Decade of Nutrition, “to discover, develop, demonstrate and disseminate Natural Solutions for achieving and maintaining World Peace…”
The text of the establishing Resolution is reproduced below.
The initial President of the Institute is Maj. Gen. Bert Stubblebine (USA ret). Dr. Rima E. Laibow is the Director of the Institute and Ralph Fucetola JD is its Secretary.
The first public act of the Institute was to deliver a statement on Health, Peace and Honest Money to the “End the Fed” Rally at the Federal Reserve Building, New York City, on November 22, 2008.
â€œWar is bad for your health. Unstable money systems are the tool of those who generate wars for their own financial health. Health freedom implies the freedom to live free from the threat of engineered wars to enrich the few and kill and subjugate the many. It also implies the right to earn enough real money to support the health and well being of your body, your family, your community and your world.â€
