What happens when one of the champions of the progressive movement, who has led the fight against government corruption, corporatism and globalization by making Academy Award winning documentaries, has his comments banned from a leading liberal blog? And what’s more, this same liberal blog that censors his comments, currently runs an ad for his huge, groundbreaking new film on the top of their front page!

Anti-war Icon Cindy Sheehan Supports 9/11 Truth and a New 9/11 Investigation

Speaking in Burlington, Vermont this past Friday evening, March 2nd, 2007, grieving mother, anti-war activist and author Cindy Sheehan extended her hand in support of researchers and activists skeptical of the official line on the 9/11 terror attacks and publicly questioned several key features in the establishment mythos surrounding the event.

When asked the question, “Do you buy into the government's account of events on 9/11 and if not, which part or parts do you suspect or have you proven to be false,” Sheehan:

1) called attention to the relevance of 9/11 by linking it to the claims used to justify the war in Iraq and her son's death there;
2) lent verbal support to a new, democratically-led 9/11 investigation;
3) lent verbal support and urged others to lend their support to 9/11 Truth researchers and activists;
4) referenced the video, “Loose Change” (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7866929448192753501); and
5) referenced David Ray Griffin's book, The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions about the Bush Administration and 9/11 (http://physics911.ca/pdf/2004/griffin_pearl_harbor.pdf)

A video clip of the event is posted at the following URLs:

Sit-in for Justice re: Death of Martin Anderson

Some have called it “60's Paradigm” (as opposed to “Information Age Paradigm”) but, for some of those demanding truth and justice in the death of Martin Anderson, sit-ins are very much a part of the deal. Could they work to open 9/11 again?

"Witness Against Torture" 1/11/07

Below is an announcement for a day of activism known as "Witness Against Torture" (www.witnesstorture.org) aimed at shutting down Camp X-Ray at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Given that it plays such a central role in the "New Freedom" including Guantanamo's camps, 9/11 Truth may be an appropriate addition to the ranks.

“In the work to shut down Guantánamo, there is a part to be played by lawyers and human rights advocates. What is the role of the citizen? To stand up on behalf of the victims of the war on terrorism. On January 11, many of us will do that through nonviolent direct action, creatively challenging a system of laws that offer no justice.
CALL TO ACTION

We declare January 11, 2007, five years after the first prisoners arrived at Guantanamo, an International Day of Action to Shut Down Guantánamo. In Washington, DC we will hold a permitted march from the Supreme Court to the U.S. Federal Court; some may risk arrest they attempt to submit Habeas petitions on the behalf of the prisoners of Guantánamo. There will also be solidarity demonstrations from Amsterdam to Boise, Idaho and a National Call-In Day to Congress. We invite you to come to Washington and participate, or else join or plan an action in your own community.

"End the War 1/27/07"

Below is an announcement for a national day of action in Washington, D. C. to be hosted by the United for Peace and Justice coalition (unitedforpeace.org), including a post-rally Congressional lobbying day. Please note that A) this will be one of the first sights the new Congress witnesses and B) these are usually extremely large events with attendees numbering in the hundreds of thousands. While UFPJ marchgoers are generally of an inordinately "fluffy" left-liberal persuasion, there will be are noticeable quantities of marchers who are 9/11-aware or official story-questioning. 9/11 Truthers may seize the opportunity to spread information, to draw out disaffected leftists from under the unqualified (9/11 Truth-less) UFPJ leadership and perhaps to gain insight from the Congressional lobbying workshops.

"Help Mobilize for Jan. 27-29! Plus, Latest Details on the Demo
December 18th, 2006

Momentum is beginning to build for the politically urgent mobilization on Saturday, Jan. 27th. There are already more than 500 endorsements for the demonstration and we are hearing from groups around the country that they are organizing to get people to Washington, DC. In order to send the strongest, clearest message to the new Congress we are working hard to have the largest turnout possible.

The 9/11 Action Net Has Been Updated...

The 9/11 Action Net at http://www.911action.net has been updated with new features.

From the welcome page:

"Since September of 2001, a wave of information and questions contrary to and critical of the official (deceitful) story of the U.S. terror attacks of the 11th has swept the planet and continues to grow. Substantial doubt rightfully exists in the minds of many and concerted mobilizations are possible for launching effort to force a democratically designed "people's" investigation of the attacks into court to uncover the full truth about 9/11 and mark what we uncover as historical and scientific fact in the records of the world. To that effect, this site has been established to design and implement a truly democratic panel of investigation by September 11, 2007. As such, 9/11 Action Net consists of the following five elements:

Welcome - The page you are reading right now.

Debut of Online 9/11 Truth Activist Networking Site

E-mail: 911action@hushmail.com
Website: http://www.911action.net

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DEBUT OF ONLINE 9/11 TRUTH ACTIVIST NETWORKING SITE
9/11 Action Net Makes Web Appearance 11/1/06

A new website called 9/11 Action Net, “a 9/11 truth activist networking tool”, debuted this Wednesday, November 1, at http://www.911action.net for the announcement of 9/11 actions, rallies and demonstrations by activists around the world.

Five years after the attacks of September, America finds itself inundated by a flood of tens of millions of webcasts, DVDs and pamphlets questioning the official story of 9/11 and conclusively proving elements of it to be outright lies. According to an October 2006 poll by Angus Reid Consultants, nearly a hundred million Americans believe that the government is "mostly lying" concerning the events of the day in question. Despite this situation, however, almost nothing thus far in the way of sit-ins, rallies and demonstrations has taken place to mobilize this segments of the population for an insistent press for truth, accountability and justice regarding the attacks and the cover-up which followed.

It's one thing to say, "stop the war" or "bring the troops home," but to expose a massive act of treason like the attacks of September 11th takes well-informed activism, that's where the 9/11 truth movement is singularly effective and that's why the 9/11 Action Net has chosen to rise to the task of helping to bring the truth about terror to the streets, town halls and government offices where it is most desperately needed, and anyone with an idea of how to do that is welcome to make full use of this new online resource for those ends.
