In May of 2010 the Understanding Deep Politics conference brought together ten distinguished speakers and hundreds of concerned citizens for the purpose of challenging the mainstream perceptions of political reality and to reveal the hidden forces behind many widely accepted historical and current events. This website is a record of that event which contains many of the videos, and documents produced at the time.
About the Video
The Understanding Deep Politics conference video was recorded by 911TV.org at the University Inn, Santa Cruz, CA May 14-16, 2010. Videography by 911TV.org, Post Production by Chronos Media & Film. UDP 2010 Conference DVD’s can still be purchased from 911TV.org.
Background of Conference
This conference is the result of early seed funding and an entirely volunteer effort (of hundred of hours ) by dozens of people. The conference was in the works for over 18 months, and coordinated by four members of a volunteer organizing committee of independent activists. These individuals came together with the hopes of creating a significant international conference to address the challenging knowledge each had discovered about the many widely unknown truths of our history and times.
