|IAIJ-FOF Group Year End Review!
By Maurice Ali, President
International Association Of Independent Journalists Inc.
International Archiving Of Independent Journalists Inc.
Fortress Of Freedom Inc.
FOF RECORDS Inc.
2011 was the most successful year for all our companies and organizations. The biggest moments were undoubtably the FOFSTOCK concert/music festival and membership with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO. But there were many other important moments and I will try to briefly touch on all of them below.
The busiest intersection in all of Canada gave us a walk through crowd of 45,000 for the successful first concert/music festival for FOF! It had everything from the music to the personal stories and controversy. All of it documented in the one hour FOFSTOCK documentary!
IAIJ - UNESCO Membership!
The International Association of Independent Journalists Inc. became an Institutional Member of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO! This was by far the most important step in our lobbying for journalists rights and freedoms!
Maurice Ali holds the letter from UNESCO!
FOF RECORDS Inc.
Two CDs released by Corey Johnson and Buttonz:
Gracelyn Angeles (FOF Production Assistant) holds Corey Johnson's "Speechless" CD!
Buttonz CD Cover!
Three new artists signed by FOF RECORDS:
Anna Wendland With Shane Murphy (FOF RECORDS) holding the recording contract!
Three new authors signed by the book publishing division at FOF:
Amy Rice - One book of poetry.
Tabitha Blair - On Book of fiction (finished as of January 2012).
Anna Wendland - One full length book, one novelette.
The Fortress Experiment
The fifteen episode programming is set for series sale for 2012!
FOF Trademark becomes a Registered Trademark!
After six years the FOF and globe became ours with the successful registering as a trademark in Canada.
2012 and Beyond!
2011 was the toughest year for me mentally and physically. We are a different organization in 2012, no doubt about that. 2012 looks to be a year of print, lobbying for IAIJ and shopping our experience to the de-evolving TV industry for airplay. We shall see.....
