CPYRGHT Electronic weapons are known to have been used by security forces on a number of occasions. The Americans are reported to have used ultrasound to disorient and demoralise their enemies during the Viet- nam war and a number of American police orces trials with.infra-sound generators mounted on the back of trucks. The high intensity, low frequency pressure waves these pro- duce are.said to cause vomiting, nausea- and a range of other disturbances and to induce figs in those who are subject to them. Ariierican medical groups have pro- tested against the proposed use of these weapons for urban riot control. Nlicro 'ave radiation is also believed to have been used as a weapon at various times. The most celebrated instance was the irradiation of the US Embassy in Mos- cow during the 19150S, '60s and '70s. It has never been made clear whether the Rus- sians used the signal as a weapon or for surveillat}ce, but a television documentary screened; last year reported a high inci- dence of cancer amongst ex-Embassy staff and suggested that disorders of the blood and nervous system could also have been caused by the signal. The women at Greenhar Common sus- pect that m more than one type or frequency of radiation is being used against them. They say, that the symptoms vary from time to time and seem to reflect what takes place on the base. Large numbers of women have complained of sudden feel- GUARD ings of extreme tiredness shortly befog: major events such as the departure nl cruise missile convoy and on other occa sions when their activities might hav, proved particularly awkward for the force using the base. have conducted a number of res.. around the base in cooperation with you; nalists from other organisations.
