Alien abductees will meet at support group

A support group for people who claim to have been in contact with beings from other worlds is holding a conference to enable people to come forward with their experiences.

The Anomalous Mind Management, Abductee, Contactee Helpline (Ammach) is holding its conference in Hastings at the end of May featuring speakers who say they have been in touch with aliens and researchers specialising in the field.

The organisation is run by Joanne Summerscales from Hastings, who says it is important for people with these experiences to have someone to talk to.

She said: “We aim to provide a safe platform for them to tell their stories without ridicule and fear.

“I do not believe everything I hear but if something strange happened to us we would want to have the ability to tell someone about it without fear.”

Ms Summerscales said that since she started the project three years ago she has been contacted by 1,500 people who have experi- enced alien contact.

The contactees – those who make conscious contact with extraterrestrials – and abductees – those who are taken to alien craft – come from all over the world.

OH GOD

Thank, Argus, for this hearty laugh on a Tuesday morning.

Maybe this is a secret plot to have all these nutters in the same place at once so they can all be sectioned?

Loads of nutters always meet up on a Sunday in church and discuss equally absurd ideas.

WE ALIENS would do a much better job of running the country and councils,the whole world would be in Bloom not just the old bowling greens in preston park.

UFO Lucas and the Green Party Councillors will take a (non-binding)
collective decision about attendence.

But it is widely rumoured that 'Having a Lark' Hawtree has already asserted that he came from a quite different planet from the rest of them.

The Veganista is also reserving his position.

Interesting to read most of these comments to see just how much lack of respect we have for those that are different from what we call "the norm". Why are you poking so much fun at them? What are you all afraid of?

Oh sure. I know how these abduction parties really go. Lots of talk of dark rooms and probes, next thing you know there are rubber devices and surgical lube everywhere and a bunch of panting going on....

Stop the jesting, there might be something in this.

How often have you waited at a Brighton & Hove bus stop watching the screen tick down (5 minutes, 4 minutes etc etc) until your bus is 'due', then the bloody thing just disappears from the screen and never turns up!

Surely that would be speciesism not racism ?
