Protest at the National Archives to Free the Files




                                                        "THE PAST IS PROLOGUE"

                                  Protest at the National Archives to Free the JFK Assassination Files

PRESS RELEASE

JOHN F. KENNEDY ASSASSINATION RESEACHERS TO PICKET THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES

     Historical researchers will picket the National Archives on Constitution Avenue between Seventh and Ninth Streets, N.W. near the Visitor’s Entrance on Monday, October 8, 2012 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon and distribute an open letter to David S. Ferriero, the Archivist of the United States.

     The purpose of the picket will be to protest the decision by the National Archives not to declassify documents related to the assassination of President John Kennedy, a decision made at the request of the Central Intelligence Agency.

     The National Archives' decision is in violation of President Barack Obama' executive order of Tuesday, December 29, 2009 that "no information may remain classified indefinitely" as part of sweeping overhaul of the executive branch's system protecting
classified national security information.

     President Obama also established a new National Declassification Center at the National Archives to speed the process of declassifying historical documents by centralizing their review. The President set a four year deadline for processing a 400-million-page backlog of such records that originally included the JFK assassination records to be released on the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death, but later reneged on that commitment.

The October 8th picket is in protest that decision by the Archives and the continued withholding of JFK assassination records past the 50th anniversary of the assassination.

         50 YEARS IS LONG ENOUGH! – FREE THE JFK ASSASSINATION RECORDS

Many thanks to Paul Kuntsler for coordinating this protest. It will be a non-violent protest to free the remaining withheld JFK assassination records, not a debate on the assassination. - BK

The murderers are still alive, they will NEVER get out till they are dead, and maybe not even then.
It was a coup d' etat.
Garrison was right, the feds tried to destroy him, enough proof?
