Transparency is a prerequisite of real democracy. The call for transparency brought down the tyranny of the Iron Curtain. "We Demand Transparency" brings together progressives and populists, patriots and peace activists. We issue a revolutionary call for a whole new model of government transparency. We are pro-truth, we are pro-peace, and we are organized across this nation.
On Saturday, 9/12, "We Demand Transparency" opens with an address from actor/activist Daniel Sunjata, and then presents the top scientific experts on the 9/11 cover-up. Richard Gage, head of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, and Erik Lawyer, founder of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth demonstrate how World Trade Center buildings 1, 2, and 7 were controlled demolitions. Evidence was destroyed quickly. Arson investigation procedures were flagrantly violated. Gage and Lawyer cover the recent peer-reviewed scientific paper, written by a panel of international scientists, that found military-grade explosive "nano-thermite" in all four tested dust samples from the World Trade Center.
Join us to hear best-selling author Steve Alten (author, The Shell Game), Interfaith organizer and radio host Kevin Barrett (author, Truth Jihad Against the 9/11 Big Lie), and Barry Kissin, attorney and critic of the government's flimsy official story on anthrax. Canada's top media critics Barrie Zwicker and Ian Woods hand in a high-impact power-point presentation, ""Fifty-Five False Flag Frauds and How They've Changed History." New York author and investigative journalist Sander Hicks (upon whom the recent film Able Danger was based) presents "Aegis of Federal Protection: How CIA and FBI Shepherded Khalid Al-Mihdahr and Nafaf Al-Hazmi Before 9/11."
Four new independent films will be screened in the adjoining St. Marks Parish Hall, with Q&As with the film-makers: Jason Bermas (of the Loose Change team), debuting part of Invisible Empire, Daniel Hopsicker debuting part of his New American Drug Lords, Mike Berger showing Life on the Edge of a Bubble: Blowing the America Dream and Craig Ranke debuting his National Security Alert.
WE ARE TAKING ACTION
The first day of "We Demand Transparency" ends with a two-hour rally for NYC CAN at St. Marks Church. Victims family member Bob McIlvaine, and NYC CAN attorney William Pepper (confidante of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King), discuss the on-going court battle with the City to allow democracy at the ballot box this November. Part of the proceeds from this conference will benefit NYC CAN. http://www.nyccan.org/
On Sunday, September 13, we explore uglier secrets: economic dysfunction and secrecy in the USA. Why is the Federal Reserve Bank owned by a secret cartel of private US banks? A growing coalition of voices, left, right and center, is supporting Rep. Ron Paul's bill to "Audit the Fed." Feminist scholar and LA attorney Ellen Brown (author, Web of Debt) shows why. She eloquently exposes the damaging effects of a fiscal policy based on massive deficits, interest payments, and fractional reserve lending. She presents alternatives by pointing to the qualities of Lincoln's Greenback policy, or the politics of the Populist Party.
Also on Sunday: ex-CIA agent Robert Steele presents on his unique model for "Open Source Intelligence." Former Federal Reserve economist William Bergman talks about power, cover-ups and capital flows at the bank you love to hate. Bergman was fired from the Fed for speaking up about investor financial foreknowledge of 9/11.
Investigative journalist and author Russ Baker will present new connections between President Bush (41) and the CIA, the JFK killing, and the Watergate scandal, based on Baker's explosive new book, Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, the Powerful Forces That Put It in the White House, and What Their Influence Means for America.
Debra Sweet, National Coordinator, World Can't Wait, and speakers from The Catholic Worker present on how to use all this information to build a mass movement for peace and equality.
