Affidavit of Deborah Blakey
Re The Threat and Possibility of Mass Suicide by Members of the People's Temple
"...On behalf of the population of Jonestown, I urge that the United States Government take adequate steps to safeguard their rights. I believe that their lives are in danger..."

Alternative Considerations of Jonestown & Peoples Temple
"...to present an alternative view to the usual anti-cult hysteria which characterized discussion of Peoples Temple...In general this website will focus on the people who belonged to Peoples Temple and who were committed to the ideals of racial justice and human equality. It will also raise questions about the treatment of Peoples Temple -- both in life and in death -- by various governmental agencies: local, state, and federal."
