John Pilger - Freedom Next Time
Journalist, author, film maker John Pilger speaks in Chicago at Socialism 2007: Socialism for the 21st Century.
A must see talk. This should help all of us, Democrats, or Republicans, or Independents, get a grip on our media/political reality.
I wanted to say thank you to everyone that donated to this fund-raiser. We didn't do as well as the last time, but we still raised a considerable amount of money. In the first six months of this year, the 9/11 Truth Movement, at least through the fund-raisers held on 911Blogger.com (and posted elsewhere, thank you), have donated a total of $5,550.00 to the 9/11 First Responders. That's an excellent accomplishment, and I am thankful to be apart of it.
Just because the fund-raiser is over, does not mean you still can't donate. If you would like to donate, please visit the following sites:
Mike Knarr and Tom Foti from We Are Change are the guests and we are joined by John Bursill from Australia, Drew from Tucson Truth and Kevin Smith from We The People Radio Network. Mike and Tom announce plans for the 6th anniversary activities in New York City, John informs of his progress reaching out to professionals and everyone is encouraged to take action on July 4th.
Ellen Mariani has been calling around trying to get the word out that the presiding judge is looking to choose three of the weakest 911 lawsuits to go to trial, and use the judgement as precedent to for all of the other lawsuits.
Its truly a travesty of justice!
Here is a link to Ellen's open letter from March:
(update) Here is a link to Tom Flocco's coverage of the latest trial events, that Ellen reccommended.
Choosing 9/11 victim lawsuits for trial?

That headline, that question is why we’re here in Judge Hellerstein’s courtroom, this time 14D, half the size of the room for last week’s hearing. Of course, the usual suspects have been rounded up, lawyers for the airlines, the plaintiffs, a US attorney, fewer citizen onlookers, including myself, notebook open. Yet what I will hear will leave me as chagrined as June 14’s double-sized gathering reported in The 9/11 Victim’s Compensation Fund: cui bono?
2006 represented a turning point for all 9-11 Truth Activists in that we saw several high profile "members" of the so-called 9-11 Truth Movement escalate an already established campaign of Infiltration, Dis-Information, Ad-Hominem Attacks on serious researchers and activists, and other forms of Information Sabotage designed to discredit our work and relegate us to the dustbins of history.

A team of scientists and engineers at the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that is investigating the collapse of New York City's World Trade Center 7 (WTC 7) building expects to release its draft report for public comment by the end of the year. WTC 7 was a 47-story office building adjacent to the WTC towers (WTC 1 and 2) that collapsed following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. WTC 7 collapsed later that afternoon.
NIST's investigation of WTC 7 includes an extremely complex analysis that incorporates detailed information about the building's structure and construction, as well as data about fires, damage sustained from falling WTC 1 debris and other technical factors to determine its probable collapse sequence.
Alternative weekly, "The Austin Chronicle" has rolled out a couple jabs at 9/11 skepticism, a two-part column by house writer, Louis Black (Not to be confused with the FUNNY Lewis Black).
If you decide to write a letter to Louis, make it an open letter, and post it in the comments section below.
Thanks, altruist, for sending this in.
The website was slow in coming, but is online: http://www.actindependent.org/
If you can be in Philly for this historic event that will build bridges between several movements and the 9/11 community at large, please do be there. Spread the word to your local 9/11 groups, Peace activists and impeachment activists. If you can afford to buy a radio spot, MP3s are available at the Act Independent website for download to promote this event... please do what you can to get the word out!
I have never heard of this film that I know of. - Jon

LANCASTER, Pa. - Stewart Bradley still has questions about what happened on Sept. 11, 2001, and he is using his art to help answer some of those doubts.
The local independent filmmaker will premiere an updated version of his part campy action thriller, part documentary "The Proof" Sunday night at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology as part of the Lancaster Industrial Workers of the World's monthly "Radical Film Night" series.
Bradley will be on hand to answer questions after the film, and he is encouraging people who disagree with his ideas to come for a debate.
The film centers on the character of Steve Kangas (played by Bradley's brother, Steve) who is thrown into an intricate game of espionage when his girlfriend (played by Jehn Miller) receives a disk implicating Vice President Dick Cheney in the terrorist attacks. Kangas is forced to hide from mercenaries bent on recovering the disc while trying to find his missing girlfriend.
Burning Man has given conditional approval to the TruthBurn Art Project. The head of the Art Project Dept. for Burning Man stated today that the project was very ambitious and interesting. We need to address some questions that Burning Man has regarding our use of fire and flame effects. The TruthBurn art sculpture will be engulfed in 6' high propane flames at night to commemorate the loss of life at 9/11 and loss of life in its aftermath all over the globe. Thermite or thermate cutter charges will bring the structure down in a "controlled demolition" towards the end of the week long Burning Man festival. Spokespersons from the truth movement will be on hand to answer questions from the press and festival participants. The partly destroyed letters from the sculpture that spell the word "Truth" will then be available for art galleries, public protests and nationwide calls for a new independent investigation into the events around 9/11. Architects Richard Gage and Scott Page and civil engineer, Charles Pegelow are advising and participating in the development process for TruthBurn.
