Richard Gage’s Auckland, NZ Presentation Silences The Debunkers

On Monday the 30th of November, Richard Gage of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, gave his third and final presentation in New Zealand on the Hard Evidence Down Under Tour, to an audience of 143 in Auckland, at the Trades Hall in Grey Lynn.

Says Martin Hanson who had also attended Gage’s Wellington presentation of the 21st of November, which had had over 630 attendees, “The Trades Hall was full except for two or three empty seats.”

The event began shortly after 6pm and lasted for 3 hours. A show of hands at the beginning indicated that the audience was comprised largely of people who already knew the official story of 9/11 was a hoax. Only 11 indicated that they believed the WTC buildings were brought down by jet fuel and fires, while 18 indicated they were unsure.

Evan Ward, who was recording the event said: “Richard Gage was very professional. The presentation was down-to-earth and in layman’s language, so the information was accessible to most anybody.” Ward, who has been investigating the evidence of 9/11 for approximately 3 years, said he also had learnt something new.

Richard Gage’s Wellington Presentation Draws Biggest Blueprint For Truth Audience Ever

The Hard Evidence Tour Down Under hit a high note on Saturday afternoon at the Te Papa Museum in Wellington, when over 650 turned up to hear Richard Gage, the spokesperson for Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, (AE911Truth), talk about what really happened to World Trade Centre (WTC) 1, 2, and 7 on 9/11. It was the largest crowd the architect and founder of AE911Truth has ever spoken to since he began spreading the truth – what he calls the Architecture of Destruction, about the evidence of 9/11, and revealing the buildings were brought down by controlled demolition, not by jet fuel and fires.

Gage spoke during the entire two-and-a-half hour long event. Says Jeremy Morrison, who videoed the highlights, which will be posted on YouTube: “It was a great presentation, even for someone like me who knows a lot of this stuff already. I still got a lot out of it, mainly about the science behind the controlled demolition. It’s come a long way and he covered a lot of ground.” Morrison, who kept a watchful eye on the proceedings on the stage, as well as in the audience, said he was aware of only one person who loudly voiced his disapproval, and the heckler, which Morrison caught on camera, looked emotionally shaken by what he had learnt about 9/11. “Apart from him, the audience loved Richard. There was a really good atmosphere,” offers Morrison.

Says Helen Waddington, who was one the team who worked behind the scenes to contribute to the event’s success: “It was surreal. It was great when so many turned up. I had a smile on my face when the hundreds of people came!”

Richard Gage's New Zealand Tour Getting Good Media Coverage

Richard Gage of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, is currently on a speaking tour in Australasia, which includes presentations in Wellington and Auckland, New Zealand on the 21st and 30th of November, respectively.

While he received little mainstream media coverage in Australia, the New Zealand media has been more receptive. The Wellington paper, The Capital Times, ran a full-page article about him and the attacks of 9/11 in this week’s edition, which is described by Wellingtonian 9/11 truth activist, Helen Waddington, as “Absolutely fantastic!”

Waddington, who has been taking the names of those who want to register for Gage’s Wellington presentation at Te Papa on the 21st of November, advised on Wednesday evening: “My phone is going nuts as I type this and we are up to 200 registered at present.” She said at this rate, the event should be fully booked by Saturday. The venue seats 300.
