COPA and Dealey Plaza UK

On 20-22 November 20-22 2009 the Coalition on Political Assassinations will be having its annual conference in Dallas.

Dealey Plaza UK will be having its annual conference on this subject at Canterbury on 16-18 April, 2010.

I suggest that we all join forces to maximize the impact of these two events. It is of course vitally important that we make full use of the latest communication technology to do this. For example, I suggest we use YouTube to publicize the content of these conferences. We should also publicize these events on our websites, blogs, twitter and facebook accounts.

On another thread, John Geraghty has suggested that the JFK Forum should publish these seminars online. I think this is an excellent idea. This should be supported by YouTube films of the seminars. Hopefully, speakers will be willing to answer questions on this forum.

Please post your support and further suggestions on this thread.

I should first point out, for the sake of balance, that Lancer are also holding their conference over the same weekend and that they, traditionally, have closer ties to Lancer than COPA, but there is a good amount of crossover.

I've been trying to use the net to publicise the conference as best I can.

Firstly, I started running facebook adverts targeting students in Universities in Dallas and Austin encouraging them to attend the conference. This is surprisingly cheap. I've spent less than a dollar and the advert has appeard on 7,000 facebook pages so far. This process is, however, limited as nobody has actually clicked on the advert to see its full content.

I made a promotional video for COPA's last Los Angeles conference. That was seen 1500 times. I have made another one for Dallas this year, but I'm having trouble with my editing software. It should be ready in the next few days.

I have started compiling a list of blogs that have recently carried stories on the Kennedy assassination. I intend to contact them with information such as the promo video and the news that we will be broadcasting some of our content. The blogs should be able to embed the live stream in one of their posts.

The other online medium we can use is forums such as this one. If anyone is a member of other forums in which they think there may be interest in the Kennedy assassination, please post up details.

I encourage people to join the discussion on the thread that John has linked to with regard to online seminars.

I have added it to my home-page and the JFK assassination index page:
