Project Censored 2005 Book Release Celebration:
Sonoma State University’s Project Censored will celebrate the release of Censored 2005, the annual issue of the most significant undercovered news stories of the year. The Book Release Celebration will be held at King Middle School, 1781 Rose Street in Berkeley, CA, October 23, at 6:30 to highlight this year’s censored news and to honor the investigative reporters who brought it forward, including Amy Goodman, Greg Palast, Dennis Bernstein, Michele Chossudovsky, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and many more. Catherine Austin Fitts, Founder/President of Solari and whistleblowing former Assistant Secretary of HUD, will keynote the event.
The Censored 2005 Top 25 Censored Stories reveal critical issues facing the American public this election year, such as the conflict of interest existing between the largest suppliers of electronic voting machines in the U.S. and key leaders of the Republican Party; wealth inequality and how it threatens economies and democracy; censored 911 litigation, high levels of uranium contamination in troops and civilians; new taxpayer-supported nuke plants for private profit; censored science; reinstatement of the draft, Cheney’s Energy Task Force, the destabilization of Haiti, and other stories focusing on US politics, economics, foreign policy, food and health, the environment, energy, domestic policy, and the military.
A provocatively informative evening will include awards and reception with authors, journalists, publishers, and Project Censored Judges – Michael Parenti, Liane Castin, Norman Solomon, Robin Andersen, Project founder Carl Jensen, as well as video art performance, live music, booksigning, light hors d’oeuvres, and no-host wine bar.
This event will be televised by Link TV and is cosponsored by Media Alliance, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, and KPFA’s Flashpoints.
