Alright, down tools and listen up, Comrades... Management have refused to budge on our proposal, so as of right now, we're wildcatting and moving directly on to the flying pickets until our demands are met.
INTERNET STRIKE!!! EVERYBODY OUT!!!
"During the public question period, journalist Jeff Morley (formerly with the Washington Post) asked that NDC reconsider its decision earlier this year not to speed up processing of 1,171 classified CIA records related to the JFK assassination by the 50th anniversary in 2013 (otherwise they remain secret until at least 2017 and perhaps indefinitely beyond).
The NDC/Archives response to Morley's request was a flat NO.
The CIA representative on the panel said, "My agency has nothing to say on that topic". "

CHANGE.ORG PRESS RELEASE:
HISTORICAL RESEACHERS TO PICKET THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES
Historical researchers will picket the National Archives on Constitution Avenue between Seventh and Ninth Streets, N.W. near the Visitor’s Entrance on Monday, October 8, 2012 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 Noon and distribute an open letter to David S. Ferriero, the Archivist of the United States.
The purpose of the picket will be to protest the decision by the National Archives not to declassify documents related to the assassination of President John Kennedy, a decision made at the request of the Central Intelligence Agency.
The National Archives' decision is in violation of President Barack Obama' executive order of Tuesday, December 29, 2009 that "no information may remain classified indefinitely" as part of sweeping overhaul of the executive branch's system protecting classified national security information.
President Obama also established a new National Declassification Center at the National Archives to speed the process of declassifying historical documents by centralizing their review. The President set a four year deadline for processing a 400-million-page backlog of such records that originally included the JFK assassination records to be released on the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s death, but later reneged on that commitment.
The October 8th picket is in protest that decision by the Archives and the continued withholding of JFK assassination records past the 50th anniversary of the assassination.
50 YEARS IS LONG ENOUGH! – FREE THE JFK ASSASSINATION RECORDS – IN OUR LIFTIME
