University to hold 9/11 panel discussion
30 April 2015
On Friday 1 May, Canterbury Christ Church University's Politics and International Relations programme is hosting a panel discussion with three expert speakers to discuss the events of the September 11 attacks in America.
Richard Gage, an architectural expert with over 30 years of building experience, has toured extensively with his acclaimed interactive presentation on the building collapses on September 11 2001. Richard brings an engineering perspective to the understanding of 9/11, challenging existing preconceptions of the attacks.
Matt Campbell is a relative of one of the victims of 9/11. His brother died in the North Tower of the World Trade Centre. Matt has long been an advocate for greater investigation into the attacks and has recently taken the BBC to court over ‘mis-reporting’ the events of the day.
George Cunningham is a senior member of the EU external action service and was present in Manhattan on 9/11. He will provide a first-hand account of his experience of the attacks and their subsequent repercussions for US-EU relations.
The 9/11 panel discussion is free and open to the public and will take place in the Old Sessions House building on the North Holmes Campus at 6.30pm. Booking is not required for this event.
