"We, the Chiefs and Adepts of the Rosicrucian Order of Alpha Omega and Initiates of our Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, declare our order to be completely FREE and INDEPENDENT.
The AO and our HOGD have NO CONNECTION WHATSOEVER with the anti-Immigrant, racist Chrysi Agvi (Golden Dawn) in Greece, nor with the anti-Semitic and anti-Pagan "Order of the Rose and Cross," SRIA, or any of their offshoots.
The Alpha Omega condemns political and religious extremism in ALL its forms, including racism, segregationism, anti-Semitism, anti-Paganism, and anti-Thelemic discrimination.
To ignore the clear and present danger posed to the Golden Dawn by confusion with religious and political extremist groups would be a fatal error for the Golden Dawn tradition. Let us put factionalism in the Golden Dawn community behind us, and take this UNITED STAND for the principles of LIBERTY and TOLERANCE embodied in this DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. Let us denounce with one united voice ALL forms extremism, whether religious, political, or Rosicrucian!"
