Steven Seagal's How to Dismantle a Nuclear Bomb; Hosts 'Full Circle' to Return 'Atomic Flame' From Hiroshima
 


Actor and life-long musician STEVEN SEAGAL will lead the way as the first individual to personally sponsor the disarming and disposal of a "high risk" Russian nuclear missile with a donation of $100,000.

SEAGAL will mark the event by hosting the "Full Circle" ceremony Saturday, July 16th in San Francisco where the "Atomic Flame" will arrive from Japan aboard the Nippon Maru. The "Flame" was kindled from the burning embers of Hiroshima 60 years ago, after the world's first atomic bomb was dropped.

Protected by Zen Monks, the original flame still burns today and has become a symbol of hope for peace and a reminder of the horrors of nuclear weapons. Joined by peace groups from around world, the monks will walk 1600 miles from San Francisco to Trinity Test Site in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Once returned to its origin, the flame will be extinguished, closing a 60-year circle of fear.

A long time resident of Japan, SEAGAL says, "I have been blessed to know many survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and their spirit for living drives my determination to make this world a safer place." He continues, "30,000 nuclear warheads still exist today with 100,000 times more destructive power than Hiroshima. It's our responsibility as global citizens to rid the world of this imminent threat."

Dr. Bruce Blair of the multi-national Center for Defense Information in Washington, DC echoes this threat in today's precarious world: "In the age of cyber terrorism, high security hacking makes the reality of an unintended nuclear exchange a stone-cold possibility."

Mikhail Margelov, chairman of the Russian Federation Council International Affairs Committee supported the idea of a global fund to help accelerate the destruction of nuclear weapons. "It gives the Russian government an opportunity to show their leadership and commitment to disarmament issues."

The fund is to be administered by The Nuclear Weapons Abolition Alliance, and it is sending an official delegation to Russia next month to begin scheduling of destruction of its first weapon. (www.GNDFund.org.)

Action man Seagal a real-life hero to ailing PE brothers

Action movie star Steven Seagal has won a special place in the hearts of ailing brothers Roopesh and Bhavesh Ramjee of Malabar, Port Elizabeth.

Seagal who was filming Mercenary in Cape Town, surprised the brothers suffering from a rare genetic bone disease, with a telephone call to their home last week.

Bhavesh, 23, an avid Seagal fan, had asked his parents to contact the Red Cross hospital in Cape Town where the movie star was due to visit.

“We phoned the the hospital PRO, who took our details. We were pleasantly surprised when Seagal phoned us back personally to chat,” said their mother, Champa.

Seagal was calling from a cellphone while driving to the airport to board a plane out of South Africa after spending months filming in Cape Town. Seagal can be heard saying on a recording of his telephone conversation with Bhavesh: “Thank you very much for watching my movies.

“Hope you both keep up your good strength, good health and that you go on in faith.”

Asked Bhavesh: “When will you be coming to Port Elizabeth?”

Replied Seagal: “I’ll be coming back to Africa soon . . . you’ll find out all about it. My thoughts are with you at this time . . . hoping you guys will be strong together.”

Bhavesh asked: “What is the name of your next movie?” Seagal’s response: “Mercenary . . . I’ll be starting another in Europe next. It is titled Shadows of the Past.”

“Nice speaking to you . . . we will get together next time. Thank you very much . . . I send you boys my love and respect,” added Seagal.

The brothers’ telephone conversation with Seagal was just another in a long list of stars they have been privileged to meet.

Among them are Bollywood stars Atshay Kumar, Rani Mukherjee, Sharukh Khan – and Amitabh Bachchan, whom they met in 1999.

Disappointingly though, a trip to Disneyland co-ordinated by the Reach for a Dream foundation had to be cancelled when Bhavesh fractured his kneecap while being helped into a taxi in London in 1995, en route to the US.

But the Ramjee brothers yearn most for friends. Confined to sitting upright on their beds due to their brittle bone structure, they lament: “We can’t use computers and can only sit and watch TV. We are very disappointed that we don’t have friends and family coming to visit.”

The two were diagnosed with Sialidosis – a progressive genetic bone disease – at a young age. They are believed to be the only people in South Africa with the disease. The boys, whose condition is worsening, said: “We are living in hope and praying every day for some miracle.”

Children buying trainers from the Red Cross Children's Hospital Heels of Hope programme have some very big shoes to fill - including those of Hollywood action star Steven Seagal.

Seagal, who has been in Cape Town for several months filming Mercenary, visited the hospital and the Finkelela Children's Centre in Khayelitsha yesterday (May 11,2005).

He handed over a pair of used shoes for the Heels of Hope programme, which aims to recycle 50 000 pairs, raising R250 000 for the hospital.

Dressed in a brown-and-gold silk mandarin jacket and accompanied by an entourage of 15 assistants, bodyguards and Buddhist monks, Seagal toured the hospital and met several children.

"My devotion to the children stems directly from my devotion to the Divine," Seagal said. "The Buddhist philosophy is to put others before ourselves."


Despite having just had a dose of chemotherapy, Jade Smith, 13, was all smiles when Seagal visited her in her ward.

She said she was a "big fan" and her favourite movie featuring Seagal was the 1990 hit
Hard to Kill.

The Red Cross Children's Hospital has 300 in-patients and treats "hundreds of thousands" of outpatients a year, according to its communications manager, Helen White.

Staff deal mostly with chronic diseases.

Michelle Edkins, a pain resource nurse at the hospital, spoke to Seagal about her work and said later that he had seemed very interested.

"I got a sense that (Seagal) understands a lot of the suffering these children are enduring," she said.

Actor-turned-musician, Steven Seagal received the Sashi 2001 Humanitarian Award for his sterling contribution to the Sir John Golding Rehabilitation Centre, Mona.

After accepting the award, Seagal expressed his gratitude to the Centre's management for giving him the opportunity to serve at the institution.

Not only human but also the animals are within the scope of
Mr. Steven Seagal.
 
He also organized campains and charities on animals..
 
 

Steven Seagal has been an outspoken opponent of animal cruelty.

Steven has described his activism method as "shaming companies into changing." He has worked with PETA to discourage the fur trade, and has written to the Prime Minister of India to seek increased legal protection for cows. Seagal worked effectively towards saving dogs destined to drown in Taiwan; he singlehandedly pressured the Premier of Taiwan to sign legislation limiting animal cruelty. He also prevented the export of baby elephants from South Africa to Japan. For these and other efforts, Seagal was awarded a PETA Humanitarian Award in 1999.

This activism has not diminished in recent years. In 2003, Seagal wrote an open letter to the leadership of Thailand, urging them to enact law to prevent the torture of baby elephants.

 

 

Steven Seagal visited Prime Minister of Thailand Pol. Lt. Col. Thaksin Shinawatra
 
 
 

 
 Hollywood action Superstar Steven Seagal has written a letter to Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra urging him to order a stop to the "systematic torture" of baby elephants, the English-language newspaper The Nation reported on Tuesday.

Seagal referred to a recent accusation by representatives of People for the Ethical Treatment of Elephants (Peta) that young elephants were allegedly routinely mistreated to make them "compliant" so they could be used as attractions in tourist entertainment facilities.

"One hundred years ago Thailand had 15 000 elephants. Today there are only 5 000, the majority of which are in private hands," the action-movie actor wrote according to the newspaper report.

He asked the prime minister in his letter to "immediately enact laws to abolish their use and abuse by the entertainment industry".


Peta activists say the elephant-training ritual, known as "phaajaan", involved forcefully separating young elephants from their mothers, confining them to tiny wooden cages, depriving them of food and water and beating them with nail-studded sticks to prepare them for a life of servitude in one of Thailand's many elephant camps.

Local elephant handlers denied the torture allegations, saying the ritual had been proven over hundreds of years as an effective, but not necessarily cruel, means to accustom young pachyderms to humans and "taking the edge off a potentially dangerous, wild animal".

 
 
 
Traditionally, elephants have been highly revered in Thailand not only as domesticated working animals in the forestry industry but also as a symbol of the Thai monarchy.

A Peta report on the alleged torturing ritual, which appears to have formed the basis of Seagal's letter, met with strong denials from both the government and local handlers when it was released several weeks ago and also posted on the Internet.
