September 11, 2001 was a tragic day in our country’s history. It resulted in the loss of many lives, but what many may not realize is that it also caused the loss of our civil rights. In the name of 9/11, the current administration has justified NSA spying on our phone conversations, the end of habeas corpus and – most recently – the right of President Bush to open the mail of US citizens. Anyone who dares object is labeled a traitor who is “on the side of the terrorists”. In spite of this, some brave citizens are daring to speak out. We are fortunate enough to have three of these brave citizens coming to Ann Arbor this month for a panel discussion.

Kevin Barrett is an associate lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. When it became known that he planned to speak openly in class about 9/11, state officials nearly had him fired. Kevin Barrett is a member of the Scholars for 9/11 Truth.

Kevin Ryan was a site manager of the Environmental Health Laboratories (Underwriters Laboratories). Underwriters Laboratories Inc., according to Ryan, "was the company that certified the steel components used in the construction of the WTC buildings." He was fired by UL for writing a letter questioning certain common theories of the Twin Towers collapses to the leader of the U.S. government NIST team researching the World Trade Center events. Kevin Ryan is a member of the Scholars for 9/11 Truth.

Robert Bowman was former Director of Advanced Space Programs Development for the U.S. Air Force. Bowman spoke his opinions about 9/11, and when he ran for Congress in Florida on the Democratic ticket, he raised $21,944 versus Republican incumbent Weldon's $673,321. Yet still received 44% of the vote, according to official count.

On Sunday, January 28, they will be at U-M to share their stories, followed by a Question-and-Answer with the panelists concerning experiences with sharing the truth and fighting its repression.
