Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming support of this litigation. Right now, we can ONLY accept cases from attacks that occurred in Cuba. We are still continuing our investigation into these attacks.
When was the first incidence of Havana Syndrome Identified? In late 2016, in Havana, Cuba, what was initially dubbed “acoustic attacks” on diplomats in the Canadian and American Embassies created a significant media stir. At least thirty-five potential individuals of the “attack,” including diplomats, their family members, and others in the households experienced a sudden onset of adverse, mysterious health symptoms. (It was believed there were at least 70 incidents, specifically targeting 23 individuals).
The majority of those affected reported hearing an unusual sound, usually accompanied by vibration or pressure. These odd noises soon began to cause additional health issues, including cognitive symptoms, like memory problems. An acoustic weapon was blamed for the symptoms, although many sound experts rejected that theory. It was theorized that the group of Canadian and American diplomats, along with family and staff, were being targeted by a weapon with an electronic component.
It was believed the “weapon” possessed some sort of directed energy, or perhaps a combination of directed energy and chemical weaponry, directed energy and biological weaponry, or possibly all three. While the Havana energy attack was the first instance of this type of weaponry, the number of publicly reported cases since then has grown to at least 130. In 2017, a similar attack occurred in Guangzhou, China, and there have been similar instances in parts of Asia and Europe. There have also been similar attacks reported in the United States.
In 2019, a White House Staffer was out walking her dog in Arlington, Virginia when she experienced “Havana Syndrome” type symptoms, and in 2020, an official for the National Security Council reported a similar instance near the Ellipse, south of the White House. There are likely more individuals affected by Havana Syndrome than reported due to the fact that many refused to believe the symptoms were real. Of course, for those experiencing the symptoms, they were extremely real—and extremely distressing.
