The Paradigm Research Group is petitioning the US government to disclose information about UFOs.
The group, which for years has been attempting to persuade politicians to reveal what the government knows about UFOs and extraterrestrial visitation, has attempted similar petitions before.
In 2011 a petition posted to the White House's website, which requested that the government "formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race," received widespread attention and received more than 12,000 signatures.
The response however was not quite what they were hoping for:
"The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human race. In addition, there is no credible information to suggest that any evidence is being hidden from the public’s eye."
Not content with this answer, the Paradigm group is now attempting to take things further by urging the government to support congressional hearings on the matter.
"There are scores of government/agency/political witnesses of rank and station prepared to testify under oath before congressional committees now about the evidence the White House states doesn't exist," they wrote.
Group petitions White House over UFOs
This time the group needs 100,000 signatures before the White House will officially respond.
