SF Truth Action February 11th
On February 11th 2007, we did our part to help initiate an ongoing national campaign of 9/11 truth action with a visibility and outreach event in the heart of downtown San Francisco.
It had been raining here for days and I was bracing myself to be all alone in the pouring rain with my sign - I was ready for it! But the fates would have none of that and a patchy half-blue sky gave way to a glorious summer-like day. About 20 of us gathered near the cable car turnaround at the intersection of Powell and Market - a hotbed of tourists from all around the world. We set up two bases of operations - a cluster of us at the base of Powell Street held signs, engaged passersby and distributed dvds (911 Mysteries and Terrorstorm) while 100 feet away on Market Street Carol Brouillet had set up her table of books, dvds, stickers and flyers. From these two bases, roving teams infiltrated the area at large - handing out flyers and dvds, working the crowds and making trips up to Union Square with the bullhorn.
We got a great reception - many people stopped to talk and get a dvd, take pictures, etc. One guy asked to pose with my 9/11 TRUTH NOW sign while his friend took a picture. No bad vibes. The most prominent response seemed to be along the lines of "Yeah, I've heard about that. What's going on? You have dvds?"
I encourage everyone reading this to mark your calender right now - it's the eleventh day of every month. Note that this campaign is not about taking action only on the 11th. It's about ALL OF US taking action TOGETHER at the same time once a month - in addition to our other actions. We intend to make history - please join us.
