911 TRUTH MOVEMENT GATHERS MOMENTUM

Posted By: billym
Date: Friday, 9 January 2004, 5:08 a.m.

Will the "911 TRUTH MOVEMENT" Suceed?"

I've been thinking a lot about the incident in New York city I posted about where a group unfurled a large banner that simply said: "THE BUSH REGIME ENGINEERED 911." Bystanders had a mixed reaction to that and I guess the police eventually shooed them away, but the organizers said more people were for them than against them. The group is called "911 TRUTH MOVEMENT." Here's the original post about that incident.

http://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/members/forum.cgi?read=42511




What I kept thinking about, other than admiring this simple but powerful action, was what if this group started doing this one simple thing in every major city in the country? Of course this event was not covered by the mainstream news, but it hit the alternative news big, and I was wondering if this same banner started being unfurled all across the country, day after day, could the mainstream media continue to ignore it? Would it not become newsworthy by sheer number of occurences?

What struck me about this activist action is that it was so simple. Just unrolling and holding a banner in a crowded city. That's all they did. The impact came from the words on the banner because they are words nearly everyone has thought but very few have had the courage to say in public. The words are taboo, and hence they have immense power in a public situation. It is if, as a nation, we have all agreed to go along with the lie, because the truth is more than we can bear. The truth, if it came out, would tear the nation apart.

Then this group decides to just put the truth into the simplest of words and unfurl the words on a banner. There is no law in the United States that says you can't put some words on a banner and stand there in a public place holding your banner. This is a clear matter of free speech. The group, in a way, was testing our current situation regarding free speech. How much free speech do we have left? Are the words "The Bush Regime Engineered 911" illegal now? Can a set of words be declared illegal? I started thinking that I hoped this group would start doing this simple little thing in cities all over the country. Let's find out if it is now illegal to speak these words in a public place. These words have so much power, I think, because the whole nation, by now, has them in the back of the mind but is afraid to utter them.

I think this group did a very bold and daring thing, but why should it be considered bold and daring? Because we have already lost so much of the atmosphere of free speech. Writers are afraid to write what they think. They realize that the regime is ruthless and has put itself above the law and above the Constitution. The people have become afraid, not of terrorists, but afraid of their own government.




Then a reader wrote to me for more information about this group. He has a public access TV show in Cambridge and wants to interview someone from this group. So I did some searching on Google and found out that this movement is more extensive and further along than I thought. In fact there is a growing movement around the country focussed on this issue: The Truth about 911. They want a complete and real investigation. In short, they want those who planned and carried out the 911 attacks caught and punished. And they aren't going after an Arab in a cave.

So here are some relevant links and clips from the websites I discovered relating to this 911 Truth Movement. Is it possible that the people of America could bring about a real investigation by absolutely demanding it? Considering that giant protests marches all over the world didn't stop the Iraq war, I don't want to get my hopes up too high. But the quiet eloquent power of the banner incident really struck me. The police reaction, although not outrageous, seemed to be suggesting "You can't say those words." Can't we?




For those readers who would like the truth about 911 to come out at last I would suggest sending some email of support to these groups. I just keep having this nagging feeling that until we get past this lie and and this coverup we can't go anywhere further as a nation. It's holding us up. It's got us into a world of make-believe and that's nowhere to be. The 911 Truth Movement is definitely needed and I hope it will grow and, to paraphrase O.J. Simpson, "Bring the real killers to justice."

First of all, there is going to be a protest march in New York City on Saturday, February 7th, 2004. Here's a clip on that from a site offering an "Activist Kit:"

"Support the US and worldwide "Stop the 9/11 Cover-up" protest march
On Saturday, February 7th, 2004, New York will open with a protest march against the 9/11 Cover-up. To support this march and any other protests on that weekend, please sign in at 9/11 Meetup , find four other supporters and team up with local activists in your area for that event. We need also other Meetups in Amsterdam (Dutch intelligence was monitoring Hamburg Cell suspects) and Berlin (to support the German 9/11 authors who filed lawsuits against German TV shows) and Sydney (to protest against Australian Prime Minister John Howard)."

COMMUNITY CURRENCY
http://www.communitycurrency.org/9-11.html
Information about demanding a Congressional Inquiry of 9-11 including a long list of the questions which need to be asked. Report on meeting with Diane Feinstein, more.

SGTV has a film about the 911 coverup which will be shown at the Sundance Film Festival.

Fallout Shelter News has information on 911 activism
http://www.falloutshelternews.com/9_11_ODDITIES.html
They have a fax campaign and a petition and many links about who knew what and when did they know it.

The 911 Visibility Project
http://septembereleventh.org/
"We are an action-oriented 9-11 website. Many good websites already exist offering research and analysis of the events of September 11th, 2001. Our purpose is not to duplicate these efforts, nor to prove or disprove what really happened. Rather, our goal is to support the 9-11 truth movement itself, led by the victims' families' efforts to obtain full government accountability for the unprecedented intelligence and air defense failures that took place before and during the attacks. What you will find on this site are information and tools designed to help build this movement."

They list a number of action groups and instructions on how to start one, and a countdown counter showing how long until the official investigation mandate expires. (4 months, 17 days, 4 hours when I checked in!) This is an important site in the 911 Truth Movement. Here's the original page from which I learned of the 911 Truth Movement:

Here's how you can write to them:

On another page they offer this advice as to how you can get involved in demanding the truth about 911:

"A great way to get started in 9-11 activism, especially for those with less time for local community organizing, is to participate in phone, letter writing and email campaigns. Never underestimate the importance of writing a letter or making a simple phone call. While the effect is often not immediately felt, the cumulative effort of many people making their voices heard makes a huge difference."

You can get their notices and info by signing up here:

There are two petitions you can sign:

Petition #1
Petition #2

They also give the places you can contact the official 911 Commission to make your thought known:

Here is a page of links about the lawsuit "Mariani vs. Bush," news of which all the mainstream media networks are currently suppressing, despite the newsworthiness of the President of the United States being sued in a court of law.

http://www.911forthetruth.com/

Two more links about the lawsuit:

http://www.govexec.com/dailyfed/1203/121203lb.htm

"On November 26, 2003, Ellen Mariani filed a civil RICO action [Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act] lawsuit against President Bush and other high level members of his administration, based upon prior knowledge of 9/11; knowingly failing to act; prevent or warn of 9/11; and the ongoing obstruction of justice by covering up the truth of 9/11; all in violation of the laws of the United States."

http://www.septembereleventh.org/ellenmariani.php

"Ellen Mariani filed a lawsuit Nov. 26 under the 1970 Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act with the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The suit alleges that President Bush and other officials knowingly and willfully failed to act to prevent the murder of her husband, Louis Neil Mariani, who was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 175, which crashed into the south tower of the World Trade Center."

This is not all by any means. I am surprised and encouraged to see how many people are getting involved in demanding the truth about 911 and in demanding a true and independent investigation be made. Most people are expecting the official Commission to be another whitewash like the Warren Commission.

http://www.911independentcommission.org/ is connected to something called "Family Steering Committee" and is putting pressure on John Kerrey to get involved.

"We continue to expect the Commission, staff and now Senator Kerrey to aggressively seek the truth about 9/11. We maintain that the Commission and staff must follow the facts wherever they may lead with complete transparency in order to answer the many unresolved questions about 9/11. We are hopeful that this appointment to the Commission will serve to re-invigorate and re-focus the Commission to their task of investigating how intelligence and defense failures led to the murder of 3000 victims on the morning of 9/11.

"Since the Commission's deadline is rapidly approaching, we hope that Senator Kerrey will be expeditiously brought up to speed with the work of the Commission thus far. Time is of the essence as the nation waits to find out how and why the inconceivable was allowed to happen on the morning of 9/11."

They have a page containing links to PDF files containing the testimony of various 911 relatives.

Supporting the Family Steering Committee is the 911 Resolution group which has resolutions you can print out and submit to your town board for consideration.

A site called Serendipity has information on :

Impeachment

WTC Demolition

Well, it goes on and on. There are so many people who want the truth to come out I am beginning to wonder if perhaps it might. If only that banner incident, about which I started this post, could be repeated, and often, in cities all around the country, it would be a good beginning.
