Denver, Boulder, and Grand Junction Monthly Meetings: “Pax Americana and the Weaponization of Space” April 2012

Some people don’t want to hear this, but we’re going to fight in space. We’re going to fight from space, and we’re going to fight into space.   ~Joseph W. Ashy, Commander-in-Chief of US Strategic Command

This month, Colorado 9/11 Visibility will present Pax Americana and the Weaponization of Space.  (Denis Delestrac, France/Canada, 2010, 85 minutes. Award winning documentary at 11 international film festivals.)

Film Description:

Star Wars is no longer science fiction.

The prospect of Earth being ruled from space is no longer science fiction. The dream of the original Dr. Strangelove, Wernher von Braun (from Nazi rocket-scientist to NASA director), has survived every US administration since WW2 and is coming to life. Today the technology exists to weaponize space, a massive American industry thrives, and nations are maneuvering for advantage.

Pax Americana tackles this pivotal moment. Are war machines already orbiting Earth? Can treaties keep space weapons-free? Must the world capitulate to one super-cop on the global beat?

With startling archival footage (especially of Operation Paperclip) and unprecedented access to US Air Force Space Command, this elegant, forceful documentary reveals the state of play through generals, space-policy analysts, politicians, diplomats, peace activists, and hawks.

The question we must ask ourselves along with the film makers: Must we have a Pax Americana based on the failed attempts of past empires, or are we able to work toward a Pax Universalis, in which there is a world community of self-determining nations helping each other grow and prosper?

If we move to the weaponization of space, we can bid farewell to the planet. The chances of survival are very slight.  ~Noam Chomsky (quote from the film) [Read more…]

Denver, Boulder, and Grand Junction Monthly Meetings: “You, Me and the SPP” March 2012

What do secrecy, police provocateurs, an assault on democracy, and infringements on citizens’ rights have in common?

The answer? The Security Prosperity Partnership (SPP).

Colorado 9/11 Visibility is proud to present this month the latest, feature length, documentary film by Paul Manly, You, Me and the SPP, which exposes the latest manifestation of a corporatist agenda that is undermining the democratic authority of the citizens of North America.

Film Description:
Two processes, the Security Prosperity Partnership (SPP) and the Trade Investment Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA), are rapidly eroding and eliminating standards, civil liberties, regulatory systems, and institutions put in place over generations through the democratic process. Proponents of the SPP and TILMA say that they are needed to keep trade flowing; opponents say these agreements not only undermine the democratic authority of citizens, they threaten the sovereignty of the three nations through the integration of military, security structures, and regulatory regimes.

Denver and Boulder Meetings: David Ray Griffin: “9/11: Why Do Bill Moyers and Robert Parry Accept Miracles?” Grand Junction: “Gasland”: February 2012

Scroll down for announcements of events by other organizations, with a few corrections.

This month Colorado 9/11 Visibility is proud to present Dr. David Ray Griffin’s brilliant challenge to the progressive media:  9/11: Why Do Bill Moyers and Robert Parry Accept Miracles? (1 hour, 15 minutes)

Hosted by philosopher, educator, activist, and author Dr. Richard Curtis, Professor Griffin explores at Town Hall in Seattle why some of the best independent journalists in America accept without question the official conspiracy theories put forth by the 9/11 Commission and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) in their investigations of the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Using Bill Moyers and Robert Parry as examples of journalists who have previously demonstrated notable courage, objectivity, and a willingness to examine crucial events in depth, rather than simply accepting a single-minded source, Dr. Griffin challenges their current disregard of the overwhelming scientific evidence uncovered by the growing number of professionals openly supporting the 9/11 Truth Movement and calling for a proper investigation.

Dr. Griffin explains how careful examination of the official conspiracy theories regarding the unprecedented collapse of the three tallest World Trade Center buildings reveals contradictions and violations of the laws of physics, which he rightly points out as being impossible, and therefore would require “miracles” to achieve, unless carried out by the use of explosive, controlled demolition techniques.

Please join us and bring a friend!  This is an excellent film for your friends who are new to this issue as well as for those who are informed yet perplexed by the reaction of some of our media’s best journalists.

Bio: Dr. David Ray Griffin, Emeritus Professor of Theology and Philosophy of Religion at Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University, is one of the world’s most influential proponents of the 9/11 Truth Movement and author of 11 books questioning the official accounts of the events of September 11, 2001.
