The German Section of the International Association of Lawyers against Nuclear Arms (IALANA) and the Centre of European Law and Politics at the University of Bremen, Germany, organized a high-level conference that took place from 26 - 28 April 2013 at the University of Bremen. Title: "Quo vadis NATO? - Challenges for Democracy and Law"
Among the speakers were:
Dr. Hans-Christof Graf von Sponeck, former United Nations Assistant Secretary General
Prof. Dr. Christopher Weeramantry, former Vice President of the International Court of Justice
Dr. Dieter Deiseroth, Judge at the German Federal Administrative Court
Wolfgang Nescovic, former Judge at the German Federal High Court
Prof. Dr. Reinhard Merkel, Professor for criminal law and philosophy of law, University of Hamburg
Dr. Andreas von Buelow, former German Assistant Secretary of Defense
Dr. Daniele Ganser, Swiss historian and peace researcher
There were a lot more speakers, many judges, lawyers, professors and politicians, but also researchers like myself.
Among the discussed topics were:
- "Military interventions to protect human rights?"
- "Gladio and the strategy of tension"
- "Historical fact checking regarding the debate about 9/11"
- "9/11 and the invocation of Article 5 of the NATO Charter - Legal questions"
My own short presentation on April 27th covered the circumstances of the creation of the 9/11 Commission, the missing evidence regarding Bin Laden and the 19 alleged hijackers, and the anomalies of the air defense on 9/11. I also mentioned "Vigilant Guardian". And I informed the audience about the 9/11 Consensus Panel and their website.
Daniele Ganser, who spoke before me, covered Gladio and also discussed WTC 7, including a presentation of a videoclip of the tower´s collapse. Many of the conference´s participants acknowledged that they hadn´t known about these facts before.
The courageous decision of the organizers to include 9/11 truth into a high-level conference about NATO and legal aspects of war and peace is remarkable and a new step towards greater public awareness of these issues.
