The conference will be hosted by the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) of the Erasmus University, located in The Hague. It seeks to discuss the social, economic and political significance of multiple currency systems for development.
(We have moved our regular third Thursday meeting to June 27th to allow our members to attend these special film screenings...)
This is a great way to get the word out to massive numbers - and to remind yourself and others that we are not alone. We meet on the Berkeley pedestrian overpass and display banners of peace, truth, justice, and accountability to all the traffic passing underneath. We have a few huge banners ("9/11 Truth for Peace", and "Expose the 9/11 Cover-Up" for example), so all you need to do is come out with your positive attitudes and mingle with fellow activists.
Generally our third Thursday of the month regular meeting,but this month we are pushing it back to June 27th, because of conflicting events organized by our friends at Project Censored and BFUU on June 20th -
From October 2001 through October 2007 every week, except when it was raining; I set up tables, banners, chairs, food, educational material, and created a space for public dialogue on key issues. In November 2007 (when my weekly radio shows began), I began doing this on a monthly basis, on the 11th of every month, in solidarity with other activists worldwide (See http://www.truthaction.org.)
We ask the public three questions and write down their responses-
What do you think/feel about the events of September 11th and the U.S. government's response?
How could we defuse terrorism?"
We meet in front of the Gap store.
We have flyers, pamphlets, DVD's, banners. Just bring your energy and your knowledge. Hope to see you all out there.
Due to the national holiday on July 4th, we've pushed back our regular 1st Thursday meeting to July 11th.
The room is part of the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalist complex that has held many outstanding social justice forums. Entrance is on Bonita, go through the gate up the stairs.
There are many buses (the 25 runs on MLKJr.) and on Shattuck. Get off near Cedar (Bonita runs parallel to Shattuck and MLKJr.) It is between the North Berkeley and Downtown Berkeley BART Stations- about a 12 to 15 minute flat easy walk from those stations.
Sacramento 9/11 Truth meets on the third Monday of each month. The meetings are open to the public.
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Perko's Cafe (formerly Denny's)
925 - 3rd Street, Sacramento,(Corner of 3rd and "J" Streets)
In the conference room
There is no charge for the use of Perko's Conference Room. However, it's understandable that Perko's asks
that those who use the room purchase something from their menu (and a tip for the food-servers is appreciated).

The Monetary Reforms
The main focus of the conference will be for researchers to describe and make the case for the kind of monetary reforms advocated, presenting both the logical and historical basis for them, and the mechanics of implementing them. Extensive question and answer periods and panel discussions can air doubts or concerns regarding the desirability of the reforms and suggest refinements. Included will be discussions of research and thinking methodology.
