Where the 9/11 Truth movement is at
22 Feb 2006
Although the actual event took place on Monday, this article reflects where the 9/11 Truth movement is now at.

Activists Plan 60's Style Protest against "War Crimes" and "Media Cover-Up of 9/11" in downtown Manhattan
New York City, NY

(PRWEB) February 18, 2006 -- Vermonter Greg Nixon is a man on a mission to save America - from itself. He is one of a new breed of issue-oriented activists who were often not even involved in politics before 9/11. What mobilizes him is a prospect of indescribable horror: he sees plain proof that the WTC was destroyed on 9/11 in an undercover operation within America's own military intelligence establishment.

From all angles, it's a topsy-turvy world view, that can bowl one over with vertigo at first. A mirror world with such contrarian coordinates as:
- the terrorists are Americans, not Arabs;
- ex-mayor Giuliani and George Bush are suspects, not heroes of 9/11;
- much as the Bush administration capitalized on 9/11 to advance its agenda, the 9/11 Truthers seize on it as the Achilles heel of the "new militarism," with evidence of a controlled demolition of WTC 1, 2 and 7 as the smoking gun or fatal flaw in the official version;

- "left-leaning" media like The Nation, Pacifica's Democracy Now!, and The New York Times, along with groups like ANSWER and the Democratic Party, are not seen as a real opposition; because they don't acknowledge the 9/11 Truth movement, they are just playing a part (wittingly or not) in the plans for World War IV starting on the oil fields of the Middle East.

Indeed, Greg Nixon would like the President's Day March to take aim especially at the "establishment left gatekeepers."

The plan for Monday's march is fairly ad hoc. After assembling at WTC Ground Zero, the protesters may march to Attorney General Elliot Spitzer's office with a letter demanding his resignation for failing to investigate 9/11. Last year, 9/11 activists in New York filed an extensive complaint with Spitzer, and hopes were high for a time that he might take up the case. Offices of the above-mentioned "left-wing gatekeepers" could be next.

Speakers expected are Greg Nixon and others, including:
Craig Hill, the Vermont Green Party senatorial candidate, who includes photographic evidence of the WTC demolition in his campaign platform. His website is www.hillsenatenow.org .
Sander Hicks, author of the 9/11 exposé The Big Wedding, and owner of the Vox Pop Democracy Café in Brooklyn, www.voxpopnet.net.

9/11 activist, historian and radio personality Webster Tarpley will speak at a Greg Nixon event on April 27th at the University of Vermont. Tarpley is devoting his energies to opposing the latest war drive on Iran. He says the plan is to attack Iran already by the end of March, which leaves much less time for mobilizing springtime demonstrations such as we saw before the attack on Iraq. (see http://www.waronfreedom.org/activists/stop-amerigeddon.html) He is the author of 9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA.

During the run-up to the Iraq war, 9/11 activists tried but failed to convince the peace movement that exposing 9/11 was the only way to stop the juggernaut of war. They felt that rank-and-file pacifists were receptive, but the leadership marched to a different, establishment tune.

For an interview with Greg Nixon, see http://www.phillyimc.org/en/2006/02/19016.shtml . Quote:
"Bring your digital camera, too. Because something tells me that history is going to be made in New York City this upcoming Monday, in honor of President’s Day. That’s the day those actually informed about 9/11 will gather together in NYC to honor the birthday of the first GW. You know, the GW who was unable to tell a lie."


Time is running out

Wow, great article. It seems as though this movement is truly beginning to pick up some speed. Let's keep the ball rolling, and on course. 9/11 was an inside job. It wasn't "foreknown". They DID it. Top leaders didn't LET it happen, they blueprinted the entire thing. It just seems all too obvious. Even from the very beginning I suspected so. We need to stop focusing on whatever petty bourgoise activist pasttime we may be engaging in at the moment and start becomming real activists. We need to get these treachurous tyrants out before they seize even more power over all of us. The 9/11 Truth movement is the "mother" movement of our time...one thing that it's still lacking is the necessary numbers to foment the counter-coup that we so desperately need. And why is no one talking about how the NYC IMC remains steadfastly opposed to allowing any discussion whatsoever of this issue on its site? What bothers me is not so much that they don't want it on their site, but how diligent and committed they are to removing this material with lightning speed. It's almost like a mission it seems.

This org. is also not a viable left oppositional movement because they accept the mainstream rational on JFK's assination, or they don't make it their guiding priciple.

Brad, why do you defend treasonous murderers? Do you know what the penalties for that are?

Who did I defend? Look, our whole society is based on a lie. Deception is the means to social cohesion. You should focus on the most recent lies.

When JFK was shot it was presidential assination. When your grovernment kills 3,000 of it's citizens it becomes a civil war. We have the right to self defence against that group. No holds barred. We have not yet begun to fight.

I think you need to read your history, the whole country is founded on lies for power. Starting in 1776 and before it has been all about a small group using whatever means to stay in power. The problem is not Bush and co. it is the whole of the system.
