NYC 9/11 Activists - Meeting Tonight (7/22) at St. Mark's - 6pm

Some Next Steps after July 4 Philadelphia Convention

The Philadelphia event had many successes like the event coming together in four weeks, the radio spots, the participation of 24 activist groups, and lessons learned on making it better from shortcomings.

The goals and actions we developed in Philadelphia are very important during this time of urgency, and will be included in the discussion during upcoming networking events; the next being New York City, this Sunday, July 22, at 6 PM, at St. Marks Church, and also used to support the networking of 9/11 truth groups as I am the National Grassroots Coordinator, ( http://911truth.org/page.php?page=grassroots_contacts ) My hope is we continue to spread the word, and get people to participate..

As one of the developers of the event, the announcement guy, and co-facilitator in the July 4 meeting I would like to thank all who participated in the event.

United we stand

3. Support veteran activist groups in their activities directed toward recruitment, veterans and enlisted military. (Iraq Veterans Against the War)

4. Truth squad interventions taking advantage of the new media (using camcorders to capture political content which is then posted on the internet) to focus public attention and political debate on the urgent questions outlined above. (samuel@ettaro.com) (www.NE9/11truth.org) (DC truth squad) (We Are Change)

5. Carefully selected legal and political actions, impeachment proceedings, lobby governors and senators and use court-martial proceedings, and the civil RICO suit against Bush-Cheney as a continuing criminal enterprise. Protect whistle blowers.(Progressive Democrats), (NY City 9/11 truth), (Phil Berg)

6. Mass political education, through signage, flyers, internet web sites, petitions, conferences, books, DVDs, radio, community TV, call-ins … take back the air waves. Special attention will be given to campus organizing, and the importance of professors being aware. Wear orange (World Can’t Wait) Also, stage local events on the 11th of every month.(www.9/11truth.org)

7. Further develop this United Approach to coordinate efforts realizing that our actions must be inclusive if they are to be effective. Develop networks that can orchestrate mass action, next collaborative event is in NY City at St. Mark's church, July 22

Just heard....

.....a great interview with Paul on the Stan Monteith radio show (Radio Liberty) on GCN Friday....he told a great story about how on 9/11, he was in Hawaii in a bar and a disgruntled CIA agent on forced vacation told him "Bush knew".....and then threatened Paul if he talked....

Dr. Stan had some great advice on getting organized, but keeping the movement decentralized, so we don't get co-opted and destroyed from the top down.

9/11 Truth is the Real Peace Movement

legal issues

It looks positive although I'm not sure why an attorney who was let go by both of his 9/11 clients - Phil Berg (no disrespect, just a fact), would be involved in primary organizing efforts in the movement.

Some info on Phil Berg's previous efforts are here and recommended reading simply to understand that regardless of how excited or interested he is in the movement, his work would need to be overseen, at best, given his track record.

Phil is a nice guy, but he isn't the only attorney out there. Just wondering why there wouldn't be others involved. William Pepper outlines how important it is to use the strongest evidence and to carefully build each point, brick by brick, which is the opposite of Phil Berg's approach.

http://www.911review.com/disinfo/lawsuits.html

for example, regarding Berg's Rodriguez suit:

"The complaint fails to apply the smell test to the allegations it lists, and includes thoroughly debunked and patently nonsensical claims among the valid ones. Interestingly, while it fails to cite any 9/11 skeptics' websites or books that provide substantial evidence of insider involvement, it trumpets the hoax-promoting site LetsRoll911.org."
