URBANA — A conference planned this weekend in Urbana will explore issues surrounding the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

The Midwest 9/11 Truth Conference will be held at 1:30 p.m. Sunday in the auditorium of the Urbana Free Library, 210 W. Green St.

The event is sponsored by UC 9/11 Truth Urbana-Champaign.

Admission is free and open to the public.

People who have been studying the events of Sept. 11 will talk about their perspectives on the attacks.

"According to national and international polls, nearly 30 percent of the population is skeptical of the 'official' version of the events of 9/11," said Steve Francis of UC 9/11 Truth Champaign-Urbana. "The 9/11 Commission Report is viewed as a cover-up by a significant percentage of citizens and the 9/11 Truth Movement seeks to find answers to these questions about the real cause of those atrocities."

The conference will begin the presentation of a documentary film, "Explosive Evidence: Experts Speak Out."

James Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, will comment on the documentary and report on scientific findings.

Wayne Madsen, editor of WayneMadsenReport.com, will provide an analysis of who may have been responsible for the attacks and why.

Kevin Barrett, co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth, will serve as moderator and will add his perspective on the issues.
