Subject: New York UFO/Abduction Conference - April '99

The Intruders Foundation Presents



On Saturday, April 10, 1999, New York City will be the site of a
day-long national conference on the UFO abduction phenomenon.
Four of America's most respected UFO researchers - Budd Hopkins,
Stanton Friedman, David Jacobs and Jerome Clark - welcome the
public to a cutting-edge presentation of current evidence for
the reality and possible future of alien abductions. The
conference will be held at the O. Henry Learning Center, at 333
West 17th Street in Manhattan, and will start at 10 AM.
Admission to all events is $60, purchased in advance, or $80 at
the door. For tickets and further information phone the
Intruders Foundation, 212 645-5278.

The conference is planned as both a crash course in the ongoing
UFO abduction phenomenon - what we know and how we know it - and
an illustrated presentation of the latest research findings.

At 10:00 a.m., proceedings begin with a lecture by nuclear
physicist and internationally known investigator Stanton
Friedman. Mr. Friedman, author of Crash at Corona and Top
Secret/Majic, will present a range of scientific evidence in
support of the theoretical presence of extraterrestrial life and
the ability for technologically advanced societies to travel
between solar systems.

The second lecture will be given by Jerome Clark, veteran
researcher and author of the masterful, virtually indispensable
two-volume UFO Encyclopedia as well as other numerous important
books and articles.  Mr. Clark will present a concise history of
the abduction phenomenon, with special attention to significant
but little known aspects of such seminal cases as those of Betty
and Barney Hill, Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker, and Travis

The afternoon session begins with a lecture by pioneer abduction
researcher Budd Hopkins, author of Missing Time, Intruders -
source of the CBS miniseries - and Witnessed - The True Story of
the Brooklyn Bridge UFO Abductions.  Mr. Hopkins will present
his latest case findings, with special emphasis on witnessed UFO
abductions and the issue of alleged alien implants.  His talk,
like the others, will be illustrated by slides and videotapes.

Dr. David Jacobs, distinguished Temple University historian and
author of two trailblazing books on the abduction phenomenon -
Secret Life and The Threat - will present the fourth lecture.
Dr. Jacobs will discuss evidence he and other researchers have
amassed which indicates a highly specific and disturbing Alien
agenda and an answer to the central question: why are they here?

In a fifth part of the conference, documentary filmmaker Carol
Rainey will draw on her own media experience in an exploration
of how the mainstream media treats the subject of UFO
abductions.  In a lecture packed with video clips, Rainey will
discuss why the media often either ignores or misrepresents the
phenomenon.  She includes a behind-the-scenes look at the making
of a controversial PBS "NOVA" program, "Kidnapped by UFOs?,"
which featured Budd Hopkins, John Velez and John Mack.

The final, evening session will be an extended panel discussion
moderated by the composer, journalist and UFO researcher Greg
Sandow. Appearing along with Mr. Sandow will be the five
speakers - David Jacobs, Budd Hopkins, Jerome Clark, Stanton
Friedman and Carol Rainey - and two well known UFO abduction
experiencers, Linda Cortile and IF webmaster John Velez.  Full
audience participation will be encouraged in this final segment
of what we believe will be a historic event.
