RAADfest was a 4 day science and entertainment conference in San Diego, 4-7 August 2016 and the name of proposed future such event in similar formats.
The principal organisers were James Strole and Bernadeane of People Unlimited, in conjunction with the overall organisational committee known as the Coalition for Radical Life Extension. Many of the featured sponsors were associated with the supplement industry.
RAAD stands for "revolution against aging and death".
Whereas, on the fourth day of August, in the year two thousand sixteen, a proclamation was issued by the Board of Directors of Coalition for Radical Life Extension, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:
"That all persons held as slaves to aging within any Country, State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the disease known as “aging”, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Governments of all Countries will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.
Now, therefore I, David A. Kekich, Founding Board Member of Coalition for Radical Life Extension, by virtue of the power in me vested as in time of actual rebellion against the forces of aging and death, and in accordance with my purpose so to do publicly proclaimed that all persons held as slaves to aging, disease and death within the Planet Earth, are, and henceforward shall be free; and that the Executive governments of the United Nations, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons.
And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence in pursuing our newly found freedom, and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for radical life extension.
And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the service of humanity to man every available resource for which he or she may muster.
And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the well-being of the human race, upon every necessity, I invoke the considerate judgement of mankind, and the gracious favor of rational and empathetic minds. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the Coalition for Radical Life Extension to be affixed.
Done at the City of San Diego, California, this fourth day of August two thousand sixteen, and of the Independence of each of the World’s inhabitants.
