2003 marks the 40th year after the murder of President John F Kennedy and the 35th year following the murders of both Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy.
On June 5-8 - Los Angeles, CA at the
Radisson Hotel, 3515 Wilshire Blvd. (near Alexandria)
COPA is co-sponsoring a conference on the Robert Kennedy Assassination with Citizens For Truth About the Kennedy Assassination (CTKA). Confirmed speakers include Lawrence Teeter, Esq. (attorney for Sirhan Sirhan), Philip Melanson, PhD, William Turner, Jim DiEugenio and Lisa Pease. We are also approaching former LAPD member Mike Ruppert, and witnesses to the event to speak.
On June 5 COPA will hold a press conference in the early afternoon, since that day marks the actual anniversary date of the assassination.
Organizers are hoping to hold that in a portion of the Ambassador Hotel, 3400 Wilshire Blvd, the site of the murder. On Friday night, we will have a keynote speech at 7:00 pm, followed by videotapes.
All day Saturday they will have presentations of evidence by researchers and witnesses. On Saturday night, attndees can get a group rate for "Sleeping With the Ambassador," a dance performance that leads through portions of the Ambassador Hotel, open to the public for the first time in 14 years. (We will not get into the actual pantry or ballroom areas,
though). On Sunday, they will meet until checkout time about COPA and CTKA programs and future work.
