Peter Phillips has been a professor of Political Sociology at Sonoma State University since 1994, the former director of Project Censored from 1996 to 2010, and president of Media Freedom Foundation from 2003 to 2017. He has been editor or co-editor of fourteen editions of Censored, co-editor with Dennis Loo of Impeach the President: The Case Against Bush and Cheney (2006), and editor of two editions of Progressive Guide to Alternative Media and Activism (1999, 2004). His most recent book is Giants: The Global Power Elite from Seven Stories Press (August 2018), in which he discusses individuals who hold the purse strings to the majority of the world’s wealth. Giants identifies by name the members of this club of multi-millionaires, their 17 global financial companies—and includes NGOs such as the Group of Thirty and the Trilateral Commission—and their transnational military protectors, allowing identification of who constitutes this network, where the wealth is concentrated, how it suppresses social movements, and how it can be redistributed for maximum systemic change.
Filmmaker David Hooper will introduce the bonus scenes from his docu-thriller investigation into 9/11, “The Anatomy of a Great Deception,” as well as a preview of part 2 of his latest film. The film festival, will be hosted by Bonnie Faulkner and Peter B. Collins.
The Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance is one of the first 9/11 truth groups in the country and has been organizing since 2002.
