Philly 9/11 Truth Squad Bullhorns the crowd at the Anti-War Rally in D.C. 1/27/07

It was an abnormally warm late February day as Philly 9/11 Truth rode on the escalators out of the subway up onto the gravel and dirt path leading to the crowd gathered before the main stage. The sight on the mall was one of disillusionment for a brief moment for no 9/11 Truth banners or activists were visible, at least this was the case until minutes later when we ran into the satellite D.C. Truth information booth. We exchanged greetings with our fellow Truthers, took hold of a few “9/11 Truth Now” signs and continued around the perimeter. As we turned the corner to make our way behind the stage we saw a multitude of cameras and a figure swirled into the center, it was none other than the “good” Reverend Jesse Jackson bathing in the limelight in a clear attempt to soak up as many rays of public approval as he possibly could. With no time wasted, one activist grabbed the bullhorn and began chanting, “Jesse Jackson CFR” and so followed the squad. After a few minutes of yelling in close proximity about Jackson’s Council on Foreign Relations Membership and addressing those around him about the issues concerning 9/11, we continued our march around the perimeter until we arrived at the main D.C. 9/11 Truth location.

After brief salutations and retrieval of supplies from the D.C. Truth booth, we headed off to an adjacent path where thousands of people were streaming by. Agreeing that this was an opportune location to set up our display, we pulled out five giant poster boards designed by NY911Truth and stood behind them as thousands of people gazed curiously at the info array. Our presence reached its pinnacle as the image of truth was augmented with the voice of another activist on the megaphone thereby raising the power of the information. We spent roughly an hour communicating to crowds the importance of 9/11 Truth and other issues like the unaccounted for trillions of dollars from the DOD budget, and the usage of depleted uranium in the Middle East. Unfortunately we do not have record of the more illustrative footage of what occurred during that time period, as even the cameraman was fervently engaging the crowd. Though we did not capture all the footage from this session we did manage to save space for other worthwhile footage which will be posted in the near future.

Public displays of Courage.

This is what it is going to take. Put together a criminal case. Publicize it. And get the job done. Good work guys.

We will win this in the public, not online

Way to get out there, y'all!

Some constructive criticism:

Know your audience and craft your message to them. If you are at a peace rally hook them with the fact that 9/11 is the foundational event for the global war on terror.

When bullhorning use clear, concise and short messages.

Make sure your facts are right. At 47-stories WTC 7 would've been the tallest building in 33 states. 9/11 led to the illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Keep up the great work!

The truth shall set us free. Love is the only way forward.

Be well.

Good show guys!

Thanks for the encouragement to do likewise.
