King Co-Opted;
Abbie Assassinated
An Interview with Dave Bellinger
Q: We were talking about James Bevel and
you were saying that you and the Reverend
Bevel were the ones who actually first con­
vinced Martin Luther King to oppose the war?
A: We on the National Mobilization Committee,
which at the time was organizing the largest anti­
war demonstrations, decided that Martin, who a
number of us knew and had worked with, that
time was overdue for him to come out and really be
against the war. But he was under tremendous
pressure and he kept flirting with the idea during
the time we were working with him. And I would
have specific reports, sometimes from one of the
other people on the staff and sometimes because I
was president, where somebody would come up to
him and say, "Martin, if you march," except they
called him Dr. King, that kind of person, "Dr. King,
if you march in that demonstration next week or
two weeks from now", whatever it would be at the
time, "I have a check In my pocket here, or in my
hand, for $20,000 that I was going to give you but
I'll have to tear up or I can't give it to you." So he photo: Chris FeJver

November 22,1993, marks the end of the third decade of questions about the assassination of President John F.

Kennedy and the numerous mysteries that continue to elude researchers, journalists, historians and popular

writers. Since its inception in 1991, the Assassination Symposium on Kennedy (ASK) has provided an

opportunity for concerned citizens and researchers from across the U.S. and around the world to lay out their

individual pieces of the puzzle. Co-sponsored by The Texas Observer, ASK hopes to be a vehicle to allow those

pieces to come together in a manner that can facilitate finding truth as well as spotlighting needed changes in

government policy and procedures. On the 30th Anniversary of this international tragedy, more people than ever

before will convene at Dallas' Hyatt Regency Hotel, just blocks from Dealey Plaza, for the 1993 Assassination

Symposium. They will be privy to four days of all new panel discussions, eyewitness testimony, first-hand

accounts and other presentations, including a keynote speech by Norman Mailer, whose book on Lee Harvey

Oswald will be released in 1994. The ASK Mart will feature a wide variety of displays and merchandise, including

many of the newest books in the field, some of which can be autographed on the spot by the author. Registrants

will also be able to participate in other special events related to assassination research and the anniversary

observation. Fees are $125 if postmarked by September 28; $150 if postmarked by October 27 and $175 walkup.

e N e w 1994? Fla±lajxd Catalocf
This year's F L A T L A N D # 1 0 focuses on UFOs &
AXIENS and has some intriguing features:
• Bo Gritz Interrogated by Adam Parfrey (Feral House press), in which Gritz, the most
highly decorated Green Beret commander who served in Vietnam and the model
for Sylvester Stallone's character in Rambo (and possibly Marlon Brando's Col.
Kurtz in Apocalypse Now), discusses the role of the CIA in drug trafficking since
WWII through 'Nam to Iran Contra, new evidence on why American POWs may
still be alive in Laos, the Kennedy Assassination, Jonestown, Central America, the
Mossad, and Satanic Abductions. Gritz ran for President on the post-Duke Populist
Party. He collected nearly 100,000 votes nationally in 1992.

• The New Master Machine Race by Jerome Eden, who has published many books on the work of the late
Wilhelm Reich, MD, and has been a UFO researcher, radical public school teacher, and cloudbuster
operator with 28 years experience. His perspective on inhuman alien
invaders incorporates Reich's last published work, Contact with Space.
Eden's analysis of the character of these aliens draws a picture of cold,
emotionless egg-heads w h o somehow need Earth (and us) for their
own vitality.
• The New Blue Fascism by Peter Nasselstein, from Hamburg, Germany. Nasselstein's
erudite discussion of "energetic" Blue Fascism (as differentiated from the "Black
Fascism" of Nazi Germany and "Red Fascism" of Stalinist Russia). Blue is the
color of life energy, orgone. Blue Fascism is the distortion of orgonomy by the
emotional plague. The article is an uncompromising, critical look at New A g e ­
ism, "bodywork", Gurdjieff, Rajneesh, occultism, western y o g a , Leary.
Jonestown, all couched in a shocking argument that UFOs are functioning like
the T-Bacilli (or "cancer microbes") in an energetically decaying cosmic
atmosphere, the natural product of a dying galaxy. Nasselstein views Blue
Fascism as an augur of apocalypse.

• Mark Lane on Murder in Memphis, interviewed by Kenn Thomas, of Steamshovel

Press, who finds out what's new in Lane and Gregory's update of Code Named
Zorro. Thomas tries to pin down the popular conspiracy author on details of his
connection with Jim Jones and Jonestown.

• Incorrect Political Memoir by Daniel Brandt, in which one of America's most responsible and productive
researchers into the intelligence community answers his critics, including Chip Berlet, w h o
ostracize Brandt and anyone else failing to conform to their twisted PC standards. While Berlet has
gained prominence as an investigator into the right wing's "wooing" of the left, as in Lyndon
LaRouche and other "cult" groups, his own relationship with the ADL scandal has now been openly
questioned, wherein Berlet provided information to Israel on left groups in the US, information
which probably reached South Africa.
