About our Speaker and Subject
Citizen Hearing on Disclosure
National Press Club: April 29 - May 3
The components of the Citizen Hearing are being assembled and we are focusing on raising awareness of the project within the ET research/activist community, in the US and abroad, and the most interested public.
The Citizen Hearing will be conducted over five days. It will consist of 30 hours of testimony from approximately forty witnesses testifying in groups of three and four regarding events and evidence relevant to extraterrestrial related phenomena. Each witness will deliver prepared remarks to be followed by questions from the hearing committee made up of five former members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate.
The setting for and conduct of the Citizen Hearing will match that of a formal Senate hearing to the extent possible. The Hart Senate Hearing Room will be the model. In addition to a press section, there will be room for a public audience of approximately 300.
The entire Citizen Hearing, 40 hours, will be live streamed over the Internet.
Simultaneous translations for the live and Internet audience will be available in Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Russian as needed.
The last Congressional hearing addressing the ET subject occurred in 1968. The motto for the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure is, "If Congress will not do its job, the people will."
The base hotel for the Citizen Hearing witnesses, committee members, and VIP guests will be the Washington Plaza - www.washingtonplazahotel.com
Citizen Hearing Conference
Each evening between 7 pm and 11 pm speakers will present three 55 minute lectures on relevant subjects. These lectures will be presented in the hearing room with an audience capacity of approximately 350. This is a separate event that will also be live streamed to the Internet.
