Take Action - Ask CSPAN to Cover Upcoming Emergency Truth Convergence

I thought it might be worthwhile to contact CSPAN to see if they might cover the 9/11 Congressional Briefing as mentioned yesterday as well as the related Emergency Truth Convergence. CSPAN has covered 9/11 a couple of times recently including David Ray Griffin last April and Lee Hamilton in May.

I have written the following email to CSPAN, and I encourage each of you to take the time this weekend to either send the following email, or write your own, to CSPAN encouraging them to not only cover this event, but the Truth Emergency Conference next weekend as well.

You should send your emails to their 'Suggest Events' email at events@c-span.org. You may also want to call them at (765) 464-3080.

Events Scheduler,

I am writing you in hopes that you might cover two very important events occurring next weekend (July 22nd - July 24th) in Washington, DC.

The first of these events is a congressional briefing sponsored by Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) and Rep.

This event is entitled 'The 9/11 Commission Report One Year Later: A Citizens'’ Response - Did They Get It Right?'. This event will feature many prominent 9/11 researchers as well as family members of the victims of 9/11.

Here is a list of presenters for this event:

The second of these events is a 3 day event entitled 'D.C. Emergency Truth Convergence' which will take place July 22nd through July 24th. This event includes many prominent researchers and activists representing many different current day issues including 9/11, Iraq, the Downing Street Memo, and depleted uranium.

Recently CSPAN has done a great job of covering events that otherwise would go unnoticed by mainstream media. The most recent of these events include the recent airing of David Ray Griffin on BookTV as well as Lee Hamilton on CSPAN. During Hamilton's appearance on CSPAN it was mentioned how important the continuance of 9/11 discussion was, and I would argue that these events are key to that discussion.

Please consider covering both of these events, and please contact me, or the organizers of these events as to when these events might air.

Further details of these events can be found at the following website:
