Futuro) and invited the Author in Italy twice, establishing a deep and sincere friendship. From the original manuscript of Corso´s diary “Dawn of a New Age”, given to him by the Colonel, in the year 2003 Baiata released the book in Italian (Pendragon Edizioni), the first and only edition of it, worldwide. As lecturer, Baiata has participated in numerous UFO conferences all over the world, and countless TV and radio programs.

  Stephen Bassett is a leading advocate for ending the 58-year government imposed truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race and the planet earth. He is a political activist, founder of the Paradigm Research Group, Executive Director of the Extraterrestrial Phenomena Political Action Committee (X-PPAC), author of the Paradigm Clock website, and a political columnist and commentator. Presently he is the only registered lobbyist in the United States representing extraterrestrial-related phenomena research/activist organizations, and X-PPAC is the first political action committee to target the political implications of extraterrestrial-related phenomena. In 2002 he conducted an independent Congressional campaign for the 8th District of Maryland. It was first instance in which a congressional candidate on the November ballot in a federal election addressed the matter of an extraterrestrial presence and the 5-decade government imposed truth embargo. On January 13 of 2003 he launched a new initiative, Citizen Hearing, which intends to conduct a week-long hearing in Washington, DC before former Members of the US House and Senate. The motto is, “If Congress will not do its job, the people will.” This ground breaking project awaits funding. In April of 2004 he produced the 1st Annual Exopolitics Expo – the X-Conference – held at the Hilton Washington, DC North/Gaithersburg. It was produced by Paradigm Research Group. The 2nd Annual Exopolitics Expo (X-Conference 2005) was completed on April 22-24, 2005. The 3rd X-Conference is tentatively planned for early June of 2006. Since 1996 Bassett has assisted many other organizations and initiatives which have been making the case for 1) an end to the government embargo on the truth surrounding an extraterrestrial presence, and 2) open congressional hearings to take the testimony of former military and agency employees witness to extraterrestrial-related events and evidence. His work has been referenced in, among others, the Washington Post, Washington Times, New York Times, Legal Times, Christian Science Monitor, National Journal, Pravda, London Sunday Express and O´Dweyer´s Washington Report. He has appeared on hundreds of radio and television talk shows, in numerous documentaries and brought the message to millions of people of the likelihood and implications of “Disclosure” – the formal acknowledge by the United States government of an extraterrestrial presence about the earth – not maybe, not someday, but NOW.

robert-fleischerRobert Fleischer is the coordinator of the German Exopolitics Initiative. He was born in the ancient communist part of Germany. He started to become interested in UFOlogy at an early age of 16, when he came to know the famous Paleo-SETI researcher and author Erich von Däniken from Switzerland. He has worked as a TV-journalist for several German TV networks and abandoned this path when he realized it was very hard to report on issues he considered of upmost importance.

As the coordinator of the German Exopolitics Initiative, his main goal is to bring the UFO discussion in the German public back to a respectful and fact-oriented level, so that there can be an informed and open public debate about the perhaps most important issue that mankind is facing today – the extraterrestrial presence on Earth.

  Pepón Jover del Pozo, M.Sc. (Spain) I would like to use three words that capture my essence as a way to briefly present myself. The first one describes who I am, a seeker of truth; the second, my main interest, consciousness and its expansion and finally freedom, my biggest eagerness. I search for the truths that help me become conscious of anything unconscious within me in order to transform myself into a freer spiritual being. My continuous search for the truth about life has lead me to find in my journey the extraterrestrial issue and become aware of the consequences of such fact for our Human Civilization. I’ve realized that this is the biggest human secret ever kept and that it has the great potential to dynamite the structures that enslave our psyche into this illusory matrix of a three dimensional reality; hence freeing humankind from suffering. Since this realization, I’ve experienced how the pieces of the puzzle of the big mystery of life I was trying to put together, started to fit and a great image began to emerge. Exopolitics became then the platform from which to pursue my biggest desire for all human beings: freedom. I was born in Barcelona, Spain, however, I’ve never had the feeling of belonging to a country but rather to some larger and deeper reality. My academic background starts with a four year degree in International Trade at Pompeu Fabra University, afterwards again a four year degree in Psychology with a specialization in clinical psychology at Universitat Oberta de Catalunya both in Barcelona. I recently finished a two year MSc on Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University. I come from the business world, having worked for a while in different companies and later on shifting towards the health sector, working as a practicum student of psychology in Psycho Oncology at Sant Pau Hospital in Barcelona. Once finished psychology I became a transpersonal psychotherapist which lead me to start the MSc I’m finishing now. Throughout the years 2000 and 2001 I’ve published six articles in a well known newspaper, El Mundo, about psychology and spirituality. Since 2006 I’ve been running my main website www.trans-personal.com where I freely publish my articles and research. Since early 2008 I have been running the Spanish Exopolitics site which has been disclosing the truth about the ETs reality and free energy, as well as to educate, inform and serve as a platform for the Spanish speaking community on Exopolitics. I was a principal organizer of the 2009 European Exopolitics Summit in Barcelona. Main Website: www.exopoliticsspain.es

Niara-IsleyNiara Terela Isley has been a spiritual seeker from almost the cradle up. After discovering a disturbing three-month block of missing time in 1980, from her time as an enlisted airman in the Air Force – during which she had only the most general of memories – she underwent hypnosis to recover some of that missing time and to investigate other earlier memories and strange dreams from childhood. What she discovered was staggering and life-altering, turning life upside down for her for a good many years, launching her into more study and research to find out what had happened to her and why, and to heal from the ensuing emotional fallout. As an experiencer of extraterrestrial abduction/contact and her strange milab-type experiences while in the Air Force, Niara has gained deep insights into the workings of our world and the roles that different groups of extraterrestrials may be playing in it. Today she works to raise public awareness about the reality of extraterrestrials, to shed light on the machinations of the “shadow government” and re-frame it all in a life-affirming and hope-filled vision of where we may be headed as a species from her own life-long spiritual experience and perspective. She brings to her work as well her many years of self-study over a variety of disciplines. Niara is a writer, artist and life coach, and founder of Durango Exopolitics local discussion group and durangoexopolitics.blogspot.com, which has become widely read over the internet since its inception. She feels a personal sense of mission to present all the solid testimony and evidence she can to help people understand that extraterrestrials are real, are visiting our Earth and that contact with spiritually advanced and benevolent extraterrestrials could reshape our planet and society in ways that many of us have dreamed of – a world of peace, cooperation, sustainability and deep caring for each other as we move into an era of free energy and the ability to resolve our environmental crisis and move beyond economic slavery. What we must create and discover is the common energetic ground upon which this meeting can take place. Niara holds a BSW (Bachelor´s in Social Work) from California State University, Sacramento, a certification in Body-centered Life Coaching and Radiance Birthwork from the Hendricks´ Institute and a certification in working with Highly Sensitive Clients from Elaine Aron, Ph.D. As an extraterrestrial abductee/contactee, she also understands the common problems, issues and often extraordinary insights and awakened talents of those who share a connection with this phenomenon. Niara also writes a news column as the Denver Extraterrestrial Contact Examiner.
