And more to come!

There are at least 7 - 9/11 Truth Peace Activists presenting

who will be informing the others. Peace Needs Truth!

Integrating the TRUTH we know into the Peace/Anti-war
movement enhances all our powers for GOOD.

I attended a Freedom Conference in Dallas last November.
The thrust was against the Tax fraud. Jason Bermas spoke briefly and
presented a clip from Loose Change Final Cut. It seemed that about
two thirds of those attending knew very little about 9/11 Truth.
After the presentation it was obvious to me that he had positively impacted
the attendees who were then hungry to learn more. Our group had a table
in an adjoining room where we gave away about 600 DVDs.
