WASHINGTON -- Central bank manipulation of the gold market, assisted by the misuse of U.S. gold reserves, will be major topics at the third international conference held by the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee -- Thursday through Saturday, April 17-19, at the Hyatt Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.

The conference is titled "GATA Goes to Washington: Anybody Seen Our Gold?" It follows up on the organization's publication of a full-page advertisement in The Wall Street Journal in the United States and Business Day in South Africa calling attention to GATA's freedom-of-information requests to the U.S. Treasury Department and Federal Reserve.

"This is an exciting time for GATA," the organization's chairman, William J. Murphy III, says. "With our FOI requests awaiting response, we want to raise awareness of the misuse of government gold reserves to manipulate international markets."

"GATA Goes to Washington" has an exciting agenda, including market analysis, panel discussions, and networking opportunities with leading figures in the international currency and monetary metals markets.

"GATA Goes to Washington" will be GATA's third international conference.

In May 2001 GATA gathered representatives of five gold-producing African countries at the GATA African Gold Summit in Durban, South Africa.

In August 2005 GATA brought gold market experts and investors from around the world to the Gold Rush 21 conference in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada.

The Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc. is a non-profit, federally tax-exempt civil rights and educational organization.
