Veterans For Peace May Be First Anti-War Group to Demand a New 9/11 Investigation

Anti-war groups have long been regarded as deliberate gatekeepers to the 9/11 Truth (and anti-war) movement. But in 2009 VFP membership mushroomed with savvy new members who realized it wasn't enough to protest the war if you didn't protest the government lie that allowed it to happen. And most VFP members know the "Tonkin Resolution" was a deliberate lie – aka: "False Flag".

By 2008, an international team of scientists had published volumes of conclusive evidence for “explosive demolition” of the Twin Towers and WTC-7. This hard evidence and admissions by the 9/11 commission that they were "set up to fail" moved VFP members and leadership to pass a resolution to press for a new 9/11 investigation during their 2009 annual meeting.

VFP Overview from their website:

Veterans For Peace (VFP) is a national organization of anti-war veterans and supporters founded in 1985. VFP maintains a role as an official Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) represented at the United Nations.

The organization includes men and women veterans of all eras and duty stations spanning the Spanish Civil War (1936-39), World War II, the Korean, Vietnam, Gulf and current Iraq wars as well as other conflicts. Our collective experience tells us wars are easy to start and hard to stop and that those hurt are often the innocent. Thus, other means of problem solving are necessary.

Veterans draw on our personal experiences to raise public awareness of the true costs and consequences of militarism and war - and to seek peaceful, effective alternatives.

Way to go, VFP!

Space For Peace

It is simply an honor to unite with those who understand sacrifice and love of country to risk one's life, while not losing sight pf their oaths to defend and uphold principles of the US Constitution. Perhaps with this Resolution more of those protesting illegal wars will join us in exposing the lies that led to recent wars abroad, and loss of freedom and health at home.

This following essay, Space for Peace and September 11 shares why Flyby News switched from its main focus in stopping the escalation of the arms race, to exposing the depths of betrayal in the events of September 11, 2001 and aftermath.

US and european peace movement is demanding 9/11 truth

the often repeated argument that the peace movement rejects to demand a new 9/11 investigation is a myth
the following declaration - - is online since the end of 2007 - now in 14 languages
but it seems like most 9/11 groups never really want to post it - or mention it
the main demands are:

1) Prosecution by the International Court of Justice of G. W. Bush, R. Cheney and other officials from various countries
for waging wars of aggression contrary to international law and committing crimes against humanity.

2) International investigation of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. They are used as the central justification
for the "War on Terror", but well documented evidence shows that the official explanation of 9/11 cannot be correct.
International personalities in science, politics, and culture, including high-ranking military veterans,
have called for a new investigation.

3) Immediate military withdrawal from Afghanistan and Iraq, and no attack against Iran.
International prohibition of war as a means of conflict resolution. Military intervention and export of weapons should be criminalized.
In a civilized society torture must be prohibited in any form.

4) Conversion of military industries to civilian purposes and the development of ecological and sustainable energy resources.
According to the UN environmental agency, a fraction of the annual global defence expenditure could ensure that all humans
have access to clean water and a basic supply of food and healthcare.

see the whole declaration

here it seems to be a wide coalition between 9/11 and the peace movement

I'm on it

Thanks very much for posting

Thanks very much for posting this; but when you say: ' it seems like most 9/11 groups never really want to post it - or mention it,' I have to recapitulate what Barrie Zwicker noted following the conference in Boston in January, namely that it is antiwar groups (or more specifically, their leaders) who have ostracized and marginalized the cuase of 9/11 truth, not the other way around.

The very fact that this statement includes a strong position regarding 9/11 would likewise be sufficient for its signatories to find themselves marginalized by those same antiwar groups, regardless of their antiwar credentials (yes, even Cindy Sheehan). That there has been and continues to be an aversion within much of the peace movement towards questioning the 9/11 official story and recognizing the importance of this issue to the cause of peace is no 'myth.'

On a more positive note, I find it especially good to see Fr. Daniel Berrigan, author William Blum, and a co-founder of Code Pink among the signatories. Their presence on this list could help to counter the negativitivy towards 9/11 truth among many antiwar activists and politicial leftists, as was most recently demonstrated at the conference in Boston.
