Dear Friends,

In December 2011, there appeared the first issue of the Journal “Let us From Now On” – the only journal in Israel that is dedicated to the promotion of unlimited life-extension.

On Friday afternoon, January 13, 02012, at 12.00 AM, the journal, in cooperation with the Israeli Transhumanist community, will hold a demonstration next to the Trumpeldor Cemetery at the center of Tel Aviv, Against Deathism and For Life-extension.

On the same day, at 21.30 PM, we will launch the first issue of the journal at the Milk Club, at Rothschild Street 6, Tel Aviv.

We believe that radical life extension means radical life affirmation, and conversely, that the affirmation of life means the end of death. We, the living community of Israel, believe in the power of modern art and science to affirm life. We believe that there are no grounds for inter-personal or inter-national conflicts among the living. All the living have the same interest: Radical Life Extension.

We invite you to support and take part in this demonstration, which will be the second demonstration of its kind in the world (a similar demonstration for radical life extension took place in Moscow on September, 2011, organized by the Russian Transhumanist Movement.)

Speakers: Jeremy Fogel, Gabriel Moked, Ido Keinan, Oded Carmeli, Sheli Chen, Michal Zecharia, Reuel Shuali, Ilia Stambler, Jonathan Levy, Yoav Ezra and Amir Menshahoff.

In solidarity with the cause of radical life extension!

The Editorial Board of “Let Us from Now On”

Great work getting this organized Ilia. I hope there is good publicity by starting the event at a cemetery. It should provide a stark reminder of what we are fighting against.

I don't sit around on Facebook and "like" things all the time but this is one event I did "like", or at least I tried to. I went to the http://www.singulariut.com/ page and tried to "like" the event. But I am not sure if it worked. I went to the facebook page and joined, not realizing that it would indicate that I will be attending the event. Unfortunately I will not be able to make it on short notice, but I will be there in spirit.

Help spread the word!

Dear Mind,

Thank you very much for your support!

I am truly proud of it, as our group started in the interactions at ImmInst fora.
At our resulting first meeting about 5 years ago there were about 5 people.
And now there is this public demonstration and additional events are planned ahead.

The way it is going we might be running for Knesset soon :)

Thanks again for your support!
Ilia

For all those who cannot attend, could you please give us a brief summary of the event after it is done. Let us know if the audience was receptive. It will be interesting to know what type of discussions were happening.

Thanks guys,

Just an update: Due to the heavy rain yesterday, the demonstration was postponed until next Friday (which only promises to increase the participation). Hope to report back soon and looking forward to the event! Thank you for your support!

Dear Friends,

Just a little update. The demonstration was successful. Though, not many people attended, about 30. Still, this is a start. There will be coverage in several newspapers and tv channels. So the fact that the topic of radical life extension will be raised here for the first time is already a great achievement. An even greater achievement is to see the support and solidarity of the international Transhumanist and life-extensionist community! On Sunday we are planning an additional event, after which I hope to publish a more detailed report, hopefully, including videos.

Thank you very much again for your support!
