At the time of writing, 357 architectural and engineering professionals have signed a petition which directly challenges the National Institute of Standards & Training's official finding that the destruction of these massive buildings was caused solely by structural damage from the impact of jet airliners and the resulting fires.

Today I am joined by Susan Wolfe, who is organising the massive 9/11 truth gathering for We Are Change in New York, scheduled to coincide with the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Susan is attempting to make this event a landmark in the history of the 9/11 truth movement, and she is taking all steps to help people get to New York and find accommodation.
News on the planned events can be found on the website NYC for 9/11 Truth.
During our interview we get into some really interesting topics around the issue of 911 truth activism - I'm sure you'll find the listen worthwhile.
Susan can be contacted via her facebook profile.
TNRA will be doing another show on Wednesady dedicated to the No Carbon Tax rally which is taking place in Hyde Park, Sydney on 2nd April - so please check the website again later in the week.
Thanks for listening!

Since the September 11 2001 terrorist attacks many western countries have experienced an erosion of the freedom which I was brought up to believe was a guaranteed, non-negotiable part of modern society. In retrospect it appears that this freedom was only ever attained tentatively and required constant vigilance in order to prevent us slipping back into more barbaric forms of social organisation.
On 11 September 11, 2010 The Sydney 9/11 truth movement gathered outside the ANZAC War Memorial in Sydney's Hyde Park.

The Catherine Taylor project
TNRA is dedicated to getting vital information out to the widest possible audience, and in order to achieve our goals we sometimes need to use provocative techniques.
To this end, we are proud to launch the “Catherine Taylor project”. Catherine Taylor is the associate editor of ABC The Drum Unleashed - Robust community debate - one of the biggest online opinion websites in Australia.
The latest wikileaks release appears to be directly targeted at Pakistan - at least that is the way it is being spun in the news.
Specifically they are saying that Pakistan is colluding with the Taliban.
The Pakistan connection was the top story on the BBC World News yesterday. Extraordinarily, the news presenter admitted that the US military may indeed welcome the release of this information!
The Pakistan Government is vehemently rejecting the accusations of supporting the Taliban. On the BBC the Pakistani government spokesperson said that the whole affair was an attempt to sabotage the US/Pakistan relationship. This comes at a time when the US is stepping up predator drone attacks against targets in Pakistan.

On 19 February 2010 a press conference was held concurrently in 19 states, 3 continents, 6 countries, 38 cities and 48 locations, as more than 1,000 architects and engineers worldwide now support the call for a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
The Sydney press conference (pictured above) was held outside St Mary’s Cathedral.
Richard Gage AIA appeared on New Zealand's government owned television station, TVNZ, on 27 November 2009.
In this interview on the "Close Up" program, Gage lays out the overwhelming evidence for controlled demolition of 3 WTC office towers on 11 September 2009.
This may be the first time the evidence assembled by Gage and others in the 9/11 truth movement has been presented with the gravity and respect it deserves by any mainstream news broadcaster.
I would like to commend TVNZ's board for having the courage to air this piece.
These stories were printed on p.9 of the SMH today. Together they occupy a full half page on the newspaper, including a large photo of the WTC7 debris pile as you can see in the image below:
This is pretty significant in my opinion.
It is the first time to my knowledge that the Sydney Morning Herald (one of the top broadsheets in the country) has covered the topic.
November 25, 2009
NO PLANE flew into Building 7 at the World Trade Centre. But seven hours after the Twin Towers collapsed in flames on September 11, 2001, this third skyscraper fell too.
Like its larger neighbours, it fell rapidly, vertically, almost symmetrically, like an implosion. It took 5.4 seconds for its 47 storeys to complete their fiery descent.
Richard Gage AIA, of Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, talks to architect Jan Utzon, son of Joern Utzon, the architect of the Sydney Opera House.
Like 964 other professional architects and engineers Mr Utzon has signed the ae911truth.org petition demanding of Congress an independent investigation into the collapse of the 3 World Trade Center buildings in New York on September 11, 2001
Please circulate this video widely.
A big thanks to EVERYONE who helped make this happen (:

Tonight it is my great pleasure to welcome Richard Gage to TNRA.
Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He is the founding member of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (ae911truth.org). He has been a practicing architect for over 20 years and has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings.
Most recently he worked on the construction documents for a $400M mixed-use urban project with 1.2 million square feet of retail, parking structure, and 320,000 square feet of mid-rise office space - altogether about with 1,200 tons of steel framing.
AE911Truth.org provides an extensive resource of expert opinion on the structural failure of three WTC buildings on 11 September 2001.
During the interview we engage with all the key questions surrounding the collapse of WTC buildings 1, 2 & 7 - including a critique of the flawed reports produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) .
The Sydney 9/11 Truth Action Group will be outside ABC studios all day on 11 September.

NOTE: ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) is not connected with ABC in the United States - it is wholly government owned like the BBC.
The objective is to get the ABC to fulfill their charter as a tax payer funded broadcaster and cover the real news about 9/11 - with special emphasis on the petition from www.ae911truth.org and the recent peer reviewed paper:
For a month we have been bombarded with propaganda from the BBC about an alleged cover-up by the British government of a secret deal to release convicted Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi. Claims have been made that "Libya oil deals" were a factor, and pompous statements made that "releasing a convicted terrorist to enhance trade deals cannot be justified".
This media circus has been consistently ignoring an elephant in the middle of the room. Megrahi's lawyers were in the final stages of launching an appeal against his conviction:

Tonight we welcome Dr. Frank Legge back to show for an extended discussion on one the most vexed questions about 9/11: what hit the Pentagon?
As Dr. Legge stresses, there are two essential points to note:
This video consists of a several clips from from Fox News featuring Glenn Beck. In the first part he makes some very disturbing claims about the reality of FEMA detainment camps and the possiblity of a totalitarian takeover of the United States with the imposition of martial law. In the next segment he completely reverses his position, saying that the information was not properly researched, despite having claimed earlier that his team had spent days researching and "could not debunk it".
Over two episodes Truth News Radio Australia investigates the growing "new age" truth movement, which embraces a vast collection of disparate ideas, conspiracy theories and psycho-spiritual concepts.

In the first episode we explore the epistemological roots of "truth" and try to get to the bottom of the social phenomenon that is this wider truth movement.
In the second episode we continue our exploration of the wider truth movement with Adam Davis, web master of
The Australian 9/11 truth movement is not going away.
We will continue to press for truth and justice - for as long as it takes.
The Sydney group meets on the 11th of every month, usually at the Town Hall.
After seven years, the sudden collapse of WTC Building 7 on the afternoon of September 11 2001 remains the most controversial "smoking gun" of the 9/11 truth movement. The appearance of yet another another video indicating foreknowledge of the collapse of Building 7 drives another nail in the coffin of the official NIST finding that the collapse was an essentially random event.
Yet there is one possible explanation for the foreknowledge which has so far been neglected. We have the testimony of Barry Jennings that explosions were taking place in WTC7 in the morning, well before the towers had collapsed. These explosions early in the day may have resulted in the building becoming "unstable" - and thus would have fed reports such as the above that rescue workers were concerned the building might eventually come down. Thus the supposed evidence of foreknowledge may have an innocent explanation, and we should be cautious about pointing the finger at those who may have in good faith made statements about the building's impending collapse.

On 1st August Truth News Radio Australia interviewed Glen Clancy, creator of the film Fool Me Twice, which explores evidence that the 2002 Bali Bombings were orchestrated by intelligence operatives, while the governments of Australia and Indonesia looked the other way.
During the interview we get into an interesting discussion of the physics of the explosions which devastated a large area of Kuta Beach, and the coverup of vital information such as the alteration of flight log data at Bali's International airport.
We also examine the Howard Government's willful deceptions in regard to the East Timorese independence campaign which led to many deaths, culminating in the Australian led military intervention (INTERFET) in 1999.

Sydney Conference To Demonstrate Why Australia’s War on Terror is Based on a Lie
March 14-16 2008
Due to concerns over political interference the location of the Sydney conference has been kept confidential till now. Today however the conference organisers have broken the news that the conference is to be held at a prestigious venue in the heart of Sydney's CBD.
We are pleased to announce the first International 9/11 Truth Event in the Southern Hemisphere. This travelling conference will include presentations in several major Australian cities, including, but not limited to:
Perth - 23rd & 24th of February 2008
Sydney - 1st and 2nd of March
All tour locations will have a premier screening of the Australian documentary ShadowPlay – 9/11, Deception and Dominion by Gillian Norman.
11th October was a coming of age for the Sydney 9/11 Truth Action Group. On that day we had our first encounter with the authorities. After five months of regular appearances at the Town Hall, on this occasion we were informed by city rangers that we had committed an offence (by setting up a card table and a banner). Subsequently were we told by the police that we were required to provide detailed information and identification in order to lawfully protest.
Dear Mr. Fisk,
It is a welcome change that a highly respected journalist as yourself, described by the New York Times as "probably the most famous foreign correspondent in Britain", finally has some "questions". Great! However, there are some insinuations in your article that suggest you have not informed yourself about the wealth of factual, undisputed evidence that is available in support of the 9/11 Truth position, while at the same time you have introduced new “evidence” which on the face of it seems rather ill-considered, and for which you provide no references.
Firstly, however, I want to point out that the tone of this article is very self-serving and insulting to many who have been researching this subject for years. These people you call "ravers", are in reality people like me who got fed up with the stone-walling of mainstream media on the most important single issue of our time. This is enough to make anyone with a conscience angry. I am angry, and you should be angry too. Anger is warranted here.
“Usually, I have tried to tell the ‘truth’; that while there are unanswered questions about 9/11, I am the Middle East correspondent of The Independent, not the conspiracy correspondent; that I have quite enough real plots on my hands in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Iran, the Gulf, etc, to worry about imaginary ones in Manhattan.”
Mr. Fisk, nobody wants to be a “conspiracy theorist”! We are driven to this by conscience, and because we see that if we don’t speak up that the tyrants will simply have their way unopposed. Ultimatey, we speak out because we know that if the crimes of 9/11 are allowed then our liberal democratic way of life is over, and we would be fools to expect to be safe from the murderous cabal which is pulling the strings of world governments.
Today's action at Sydney Town Hall was great. We had an opportunity to talk to many people. Many DVD's were taken. The atmosphere in Sydney is quite receptive to questioning the official story of 9/11 and many people who were merely passing by indicated they were aware of the Truth movement.
Thanks again to Y. for the video shoot and editing.
We had a hugely successful day today!
After last months lone mission this was simply awesome. Six of us met at the pub for introductions and light refreshments before heading in to the Murray St Mall near Forrest Place. (the heart of the city).
On Friday 29th June John Bursill spoke by phone with a several staff members of the Faculty of Architecture, University of Sydney. The purpose of John's call was to share information and ask for opinions from appropriately qualified professionals about the compelling evidence which shows that the three sky scraper collapses in New York which occurred on the 11th September 2001 were deliberate demolitions rather than merely the unfortunate consequence of the impact of fuel-laden jet airliners.
Among those John spoke with is Dr. David Leifer, Senior Lecturer and Coordinator of the Facilities Management Program. Dr. Leifer expressed his agreement with one of the central claims of the 9/11 Truth Movement, namely that the manner in which the WTC towers collapsed, does not accord with the official explanation endorsed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of a purely gravity driven collapse initiated by structural failure.
Dr. Leifer later confirmed his views in an email to John, which we present below:
Our protest on Monday - (Queen's Birthday public holiday) was a resounding success.
We met as usual at the Sydney Town Hall at 11:00 AM. We had a table laid out with a variety of books, pamphlets and DVD's and we maintained the stand till about 2pm.
Average people here are hungry for alternative information about 9/11 - many we spoke to had seen Loose Change already, and the majority needed no convicing that the official 9/11 story is completely phony. This despite the almost total media blackout on the subject in Australia.
This is a video of the second meeting of the Sydney 9/11 Truth Action Group.
We will meet again on 11 June 2007.
Send an email to email@example.com if you would like to join us.
We are trying to raise awareness within Australian society about the many unanswered questions of 9/11.
We support the calls for a completely independent investigation into the events of 11 September 2001.
We call on all elected MP's, senators, business leaders, media representatives and citizens of this country.
Please acknowledge the moral imperative of the 9/11 Truth Movement. Please stand up for a free society!
Thanks to everyone who took part.
