Life Extension Demonstration in Israel

Let Us From Now On

Posted: Jan 9, 2012

On Friday afternoon, January 13, 2012, at noon, a new journal dedicated to the promotion of unlimited life-extension (“Let Us From Now On”), in cooperation with the Israeli Transhumanist community, will hold a demonstration by the Trumpeldor Cemetery in Tel Aviv, against Deathism, and for Life-Extension‫.

On the same day, at 10.30 pm, the journal will launch its first issue at the Milk Club, at Rothschild Street 6, Tel Aviv‫.

 ‬“Let Us From Now On” believes radical life extension means radical life affirmation; the end of death. They believe modern art and science can affirm life, and believe there are no grounds for inter-personal or inter-national conflicts among the living, because everyone has the same interest: Radical Life Extension‫.

‬

The Life Extension demonstration will be the of its kind in the world (the first took place in Moscow on September, 2011, organized by the Russian Transhumanist Movement.)‫

‬

Among the speakers at the demonstration will be Ilia Stambler, an Affiliate Scholar of IEET.

More details (in Hebrew and English), including the full demands of the demonstration, the journal manifesto and venue updates, can be found at the site of Humanity + Israel:

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!
Ilia





Full report here. Thanks!
