Vigil to call for full disclosure on JFK’s birthday

Karl Golovin says the way to honor JFK on his birthday May 29 is to:

“peaceably and simultaneously assemble in communities across the U.S. and world, but especially on the public terraces of The Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C., petitioning by your presence for: 1) Immediate release, in full, of all still secret assassination-related records; 2) Reining in of the CIA to its original, intelligence-only mandate; 3) Establishment of a specific date for annual, global recognition of John Kennedy’s life by vigilance in ending the intimidation of government secrecy and the violence it perpetuates, shining the light of transparency in governments everywhere.”

Golovin is calling for a gathering at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts here in Washington tomorrow, May 29, to publicize these demands.

I’m going to go, despite my reservations about Golovin: the imagery of JFK with a band-aid on his head is offensive; his 9/11 conspiracy theories are not offensive, just lame; and his refusal to work with like-minded people is self-defeating. He’s an amateur in the best and worst senses of the word.

But on the core question of secret JFK records, Golovin’s demands are reasonable and his insistence on action is admirable. I can attest from personal experience that “working within the system” to achieve full JFK disclosure isn’t working.

We need to do more and his gathering is a start.

  1. I am on a leave of absence from posting in JFK “Facts,” but any who would like to follow or participate in the unfolding of Constitutional Activism as a means of obtaining records release and associated objectives are welcome to join the Facebook Group “JFK Vigil” – . The next assembly on the public terraces of The Kennedy Center, will be July 4th – . The Facebook Event page for the assembly yesterday was: .

  2. I’m impressed with the effectiveness of Karl’s video, neatly juxtaposing the Warren Omission’s “lone nuts” conclusions with Dealey Plaza eyewitness accounts such as Sam Holland’s (who looks like he’d tear the WC a new one if he had the chance!). Not to mention Karl quoting JFK at length to a TV newsman with the not-so-subtle implication that the press should be doing their job to help free the secret JFK files. And the responses he elicited from William Nolte are remarkable and telling.

    For those of us not able to attend today’s event to mark JFK’s birthday, the next best thing is for Jeff to let us know how it went.

    ps – is that the Watergate in the background behind the Kennedy Center?

    1. I enjoyed that video fully which shows how effective peaceful but intelligent activism or protest can be (I can’t blame those Kennedy Center guards – they don’t want the peaceful protest to disrupt the ceremony inside, but Karl Golovin eloquently made his point (the top hat and tails didn’t hurt either!).

      Mark Lane is also brilliant btw.

  3. This is a great way to commemorate the birthday of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Good luck!

    (I’ll be there in spirit).

  4. Yes it is a start. The only way to ensure the files are freed in 2017 is through a grass roots effort.
    Jeff’s suit has been ignored and stonewalled for 10 years even with a competent and successful attorney on the subject on getting FOIA info out. That they will continue to stonewall is given without some other major new source of information becoming public.
    As mentioned on another thread here, releasing the files then should become a Presidential election issue for only He or She can prevent their release at that time.
    The only way that will happen is if enough people make it an issue and demand it. We the people can contact our regional newspaper editors but that’s not enough. More modern technology is needed.
    This website is outstanding. One focusing on this as an election issue would be ideal.
    Public displays of support could be an attention getter.
    Better yet, if Mr. Morley, Mr. DiEugenio, their peer’s and associates brought the full weight of their opinions on the subject in any and all formats they could find it might have a positive influence.
