For Immediate Release
Area 51 Event To KickOff Countdown To The 50th Anniversary Of The Roswell UFO Crash.
The movie Independence Day, July 4, has caused a ground swell of interest in aliens not seen since the initial government coverup began in 1947.
On August 24, Rachel, Nevada, the closest privately owned property to the hypersecret Area 51 complex, will be the site of an all night political action rally and UFO watching vigil. It is focused at young adults to increase their awareness of the probable of extraterrestrial visiting our planet. This event, sponsored by the recently formed Center for The study Of Aerial Phenomenon, is expected to attract more than 500 people to the Rachel area. It will begin a year of discussions and events culminating in the largest celebration of alien interest of all time when Roswell, New Mexico is host to 150,000 participants the 50th anniversary celebration of the famous Roswell, New Mexico UFO crash.
History will recall that the week of July 4, 1947 brought a bazaar series of events to the Roswell area. A violent electrical storm brought an extraterrestrial spacecraft, apparently the victim of a lightning hit, crashing to the ground 75 miles northwest of the city. A local cattleman found remains of the craft, loaded some of it into his pick-up truck, and took it to the Roswell sheriff. The sheriff notified Major Jesse Marcel at the nearby army base. He dispatched an intelligence team who retrieved more pieces of the spacecraft and brought them back to the base. Colonel Blanchard, also of the Roswell Army Base, issued a press release saying that the Army had captured a flying saucer. Within hours the government went into a damage control posture and tried to pass the captured debris off as a crashed weather balloon.
Eye witness reports and clandestinely received government documents indicated that there had indeed been a crash and that autopsies were performed and the remains of the dead aliens as well as live captured aliens were taken to the highest security facility in the United States.
Further information was sketchy until 1989 when a Las Vegas television station interviewed a former government physicist who told of aliens being held about 100 miles from Las Vegas at Area 51, Rachael, Nevada. Although many of his allegations have been impossible to confirm because of the government secrecy, area residents near Rachel, Nevada talk matter-of-factly of alien encounters and other strange phenomenon. Area 51 itself remains so secret that it's existence is still denied by the military despite the release of countless photos taken before the adjacent property known as Freedom Ridge was seized by the military and closed to the public last year.
Mr. Lawrence Suttle, of The Center For The Study 0f Aerial Phenomenon says; "This event designed to attract the interest of a younger generation to the probability that we have been, and quite possibly continue to be visited by extraterrestrial." Noting that the Roswell incident happened almost a half century ago, Mr. Suttle added; "Most viewers of the movie ID-4 were not even born when all this happened, they don't know the movie is based on some pretty compelling evidence or the significance of the July 4th date. We intend to calmly and factually inform this younger generation of incidents that have occurred and ask them to sign a petition to be presented to our leaders insisting our government release any and all information with no more cover-up's."
The Center is emphatic in stating that it doe's not intend to embarrass the Government or point fingers at the lack of information given in the past. "We are sure that legitimate and compelling reasons exist for the past coverup's but our leaders should know that we are adults. We have faced world wars, nuclear threats, terrorist attacks, and countless natural disasters from Volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, to hurricane's that have destroyed entire cities. We are smart, we are tough, we are reasonable, and we can take any news without fear or panic."
To call attention to these concerns and to attract the younger generation, the rally is planning to have music performances, native American drummers, concessions, and the sale of locally as well as native produced arts and crafts. Although the techno music, a modern day version of progressive jazz, is one of the main attractions, another very interesting activity will be a tented area where interested people can sit and talk one-on-one with area residents and UF0 enthusiasts about ominous activities they have personally observed. Mr. Suttle says; "I think this kind of oneonone discussion will bring home the real information better than any other method." A laser light show simulcast with techno music will simulate a UF0 appearing overhead and being shot down by missiles. Mr. Suttle says; "make no mistake, this is to be a great fun event. The music is for the young adults and I know the older generation will enjoy it too. As for the laser show, and I am sure the local residents have never seen anything like this because, frankly, neither have I. I have been told by people who have seen it that it is absolutely spectacular." Tickets for the event can be purchased through Ticketmaster. Starting August l, l996.
