Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 10, 2013
The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure of evidence for a possible extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race completed its work at the National Press Club in Washington, DC on May 3, 2013. For five days 40 military, scientific and governmental witnesses from 10 nations gave testimony to five former members of the United States House of Representatives and one former member of the United States Senate. The Citizen Hearing Committee members were Senator Mike Gravel; Congresswomen Lynn Woolsey, Carolyn Kilpatrick and Darlene Hooley and Congressmen Roscoe Bartlett and Merrill Cook.
Prior to the conclusion of the hearing the Committee together with Hearing witnesses representing ten nations drafted a statement for submission to the United Nations General Assembly titled "The Citizen Hearing on Disclosure Washington Communiqué," (available at: http://www.citizenhearing.org/foundation.html).
The goal of this initiative is a UN sponsored World Conference to examine evidence for the possible current and past engagement of humanity by non-human intelligence.
The Communiqué states: ". . . given that credible witnesses have brought forth overwhelming scientific evidence documenting the current presence of unidentified and unexplained aerial craft that many believe to reflect an extraterrestrial intelligence," and, ". . . given the enormous global implications if these craft are, indeed, of extraterrestrial origin, such an issue is a matter for the General Assembly of the United Nations."
The Communiqué requests the Citizen Hearing Foundation to ". . . use its offices to organize interested parties and raise the funds necessary to pursue a global campaign to convince one or more nations to propose a resolution within the General Assembly calling for United Nations sponsorship of a world conference addressing the possible evidence for an extraterrestrial presence engaging this planet."
The Washington Communiqué was signed by four of the Citizen Hearing Committee members (Congresswomen Kilpatrick and Hooley, Senator Gravel and Congressman Cook).
Two of the Committee members (Congresswoman Woolsey and Congressman Bartlett) were unable to sign due to post-employment restrictions on recently retired Congressional Members and officers.
The Citizen Hearing Foundation, a pending 501(c)3 non-profit, was established to educate the public, the media and political leaders regarding controversial issues which do not receive the appropriate degree of consideration by mainstream institutions. The Foundation will move immediately to service the Communiqué's directive to seek sponsorship from UN member nations for a world conference.
