World Disclosure Day - July 8

Washington, DC - Paradigm Research Group has today initiated an international effort to designate July 8 as World Disclosure Day.

Disclosure - the formal acknowledgement by world governments of an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race - is the primary goal of a growing international truth movement. The purpose of World Disclosure Day is to provide a focal point for people and organizations to come together to assert their right to know extraordinary information being withheld from them by their governments - the truth embargo.  World Disclosure Day will also help broaden public awareness of the Disclosure process and those organizations involved in this advocacy work.

On July 8, 1947 General Roger Ramey held a press event at the 8th Army Air Force Headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas in which he changed the just released story of a recovered crashed disk near Roswell, New Mexico to that of a retrieved Rawin weather balloon. This was the informal beginning of the now 64-year truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence.  For this reason the date July 8 was chosen to emphasize the need to reverse that now inappropriate policy.

People and organizations from every nation can register their endorsement of World Disclosure Day at the WDD website. Endorsements from around the world are already coming in (the majority of which are international).   In time various relevant events will come to be scheduled on this date.  

Tomorrow (July 2) is World UFO Day, which was initiated in 2001 and has drawn some modest attention over the years.  It is home based at:

But the advocacy movement is now representative of a new era - exopolitics.  The era of the UFO is over.  It ended no later than 1991.  "UFO" is now an anachronistic contradiction in terms.  [Imagine the India independence movement had focused on UFOs - Unidentified Foreign Occupiers.]   The truth embargo is not about preventing citizens from learning about frisbees, balloons and bird flocks.  It's about withholding acknowledgment of non-human, intelligent beings flying about in Earth's skies and much more.   The scientific study of the phenomena should of course go forward, but should be called extraterrestrial phenomena research - not ufology.  

"UFO" is of the past.  Disclosure is the future, and this is where the emphasis must shift.   A national security policy has to be changed, and that is politics - exopolitics.

Note: on the day the first nation comes forward to finally and formally acknowledge the extraterrestrial presence, that day will then become World Disclosure Day (or Disclosure Day) historically recognizing the most profound event in human history.

PRG Press Release - January 18, 2011

Washington, DC - On January 23-25, 2011 over 100 international speakers will present at the 5th Annual Global Competitiveness Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

According to the conference website at "The Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF), the only event of its kind, is an annual meeting of global business leaders, international political leaders, and selected intellectuals and journalists brought together to create a dialogue with respect to the positive impact organizational and national competitiveness can have on local, regional and global economic and social development. It was founded in 2006 by the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (SAGIA), and is held in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia under the patronage of HM King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques."

Paradigm Research Group notes with considerable interest the inclusion of the following panel: Contact: Learning from Outer Space - Psychological and socio-cultural assumptions and preconceptions constrain us to a large extent, and shape our views of the universe so that we are inclined to find what we are looking for, and fail to see what we are not. Using knowledge gained from research in the fields of Ufology and the search for extraterrestrial life, what might we possibly learn about hindrances to innovation in other areas of inquiry?   See:

The panelists have not yet been formally announced but will likely include Nick Pope, former head of the UFO desk at the UK Ministry of Defence; Stanton T. Friedman, nuclear physicist and extraterrestrial phenomena researcher; Dr. Jacques Vallee, researcher and venture capitalist; and theoretical physicist, Dr. Michio Kaku.

According to PRG executive director Stephen Bassett, "Political leaders and political journalists in the United States might want to ask themselves how it is a subject the United States Government claims has no validity is being addressed under royal patronage at a conference in the capital of the planet's greatest oil exporter. He added, "They might also note Saudi Arabia is a nation which will be hugely impacted by the inevitable end of the now 64-year old UFO/ET truth embargo and likely subsequent introduction of extraterrestrial derived technologies."

"Last September retired Air Force officers testified at the National Press Club to the direct interference with U. S. nuclear facilities by extraterrestrial craft. These men all held high security clearances. The political media, in particular the Washington Post, did not even bother to ask the Department of Defense for comment. One nation after another is proactively releasing thousands of UFO/ET related files. The Vatican and the Royal Society of London are holding conferences addressing the implications of extraterrestrial life. It's time for the U. S. Congress and the political media to grow up and wake up. It's time for the Obama administration to speak to this issue or be left behind."
