Visibility 9-11 Welcomes Australian Union President, Kevin Bracken – A True Working Class Hero!

Interview by John Bursill.

Listen here:

To many the name Kevin Bracken is a new one in regards 9/11 Truth. The reality is that Kevin has been a champion of the 9/11 Truth cause since 2006 by disseminating information throughout the Victorian Union Movement and the Maritime Workers Union of Australia. He has distributed DVD's, shown films and shared information regularly with his associates and the people of Melbourne and he achieved motions calling for a new investigation from both the Victorian Trades Hall Council where he is the President and the Victorian branch of the Maritime Union of Australia of which he heads as Secretary. Kevin has also attended numerous conferences on 9/11 and has been the facilitator of such in Melbourne, Australia. Over the years Kevin and I have developed a close working relationship, both striving for the truth 9/11 to come out to bring end to the wars and to get our rights back that have been eroded since 9/11!

This is the motion passed on the 28th of March of 2008 at the VTHC;

"That this meeting of VTHC Executive Council calls for a thorough, independent enquiry into the tragic terrorist attacks of September 11.

The events of that day have been used to start pre-emptive wars "that will not end in our lifetime". They have been used to attack civil liberties and legal principles that have been the cornerstone of civilized communities.

There is an urgent need to reassess the way we view the world after September 11 and we call for proper investigation into the events around that day."

On the 20th of October 2010 Kevin was asked to ring into ABC 774 Mornings with John Faine although Faine disputes this. This was following an email that was sent to Faine by Kevin questioning 9/11 in the context of Australia's ongoing support of the Afghanistan occupation. After the recent Australian Election it was demanded by the Australian Greens in a "balance of power" deal that the Australian involvement in the Afghan War be debated in parliament in it's first sitting. This debate had been going on this week and it was the first time any such debate had happened since 9/11, which is simply outrageous.

This interview by Faine was possibly the most biased ever heard in Australia on radio broadcast by the tax payer funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation. This attack by Faine of Bracken's questioning the 9/11 events included a torrent of ad hominem slurs and an absolute refusal to discuss any evidence that the events were anything but what we have been told by our governments. A reasonable explanation of what happened and also with attached audio can be found here. This story titled "Trades Hall president Kevin Bracken Stands by his 9/11 Conspiracy" has been reported all around the world and included a poll which started off running at around 50/50 asking if Kevin's questions about 9/11 were "reasonable" but has continued to move in his favour ending up at the time of writing these notes at 75% in favour of Bracken.

Kevin has received literally thousands of thank you's from around the world for his brave stance for 9/11 Truth! Standing his ground even after being directly verbally bashed by the Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard saying he was "stupid and wrong" and having his own leadership comrades buckle at the knees if the face of unfounded ridicule. Rather than running for cover Kevin with his chin in the air has reiterated his position defying any to debate him on the issue! As usual all media presstitutes have refused, as there is obviously "no debate to have". It seems that the vast majority of the public disagree and would like to see such a debate but none of the so called "journalists" dare to tread such a path.

Interesting to note that John Faine is now complaining that the ABC has been swamped by 9/11 activists and it may take the ABC many weeks to deal with the massive amount of complaints and comments they have received. Many of these I know to be formal as I have received many courtesy copies of the complaints to the ABC accusing them of breeching their charter and broadcast policy.

The battle for 9/11 Truth is far from over and as long as the fools in power maintain their policy of occupation of Afghanistan they will remain exposed and at risk of criminal prosecution due to the lies of 9/11. Lets hope it comes soon or they realize and stop the bloodshed.

Well it's all going on down under....

...this scoop goes to Visibility911, which beat Alex Jones and all the others because the host is good friends with the man himself...sorry to gloat:) Thanks to Michael Wolsey for putting "paid" work aside to punch out this sometimes "truly profound" interview with Kevin Bracken.

Kevin had an absolutely massive week this week and this interview was done at 9pm on a Friday after a three days under fire with his Union, his Council and the bloody Prime Minister of Australia.

Some of the things Kevin says especially around the 10 minute mark are so powerful I think someone should do a transcript....not sure I have time but some one should?

Kind regards John

audio link not working for me

i get 'not a valid xmL file', of course i'm a computer illiterate so it may be a problem with my equipment.

Anyway this is a really big development and congratulation for your part in making it happen. Incidently, i've had discussions with leaders of the WFTU (world Federation of trade unions) about this, who know the truth, but are afraid to act. Their position is - it's not the role of labor movement - and this from ostensibly 'anti-imperialist' union federation. Bracken's courageous position will tend to join the issue throughout the entire world labor movement !!!

Listening now

at 9:44. Great. Thanks, John.

Bracken - "Unfortunately people have been treated like sheep, but just because your treated like sheep doesn't mean you have to act like them. We've been given our wits about us. We should make up our own mind. We should actually do the research to find out what's really going on because the pictures they paint of the world aren't the actual truth of what happens there."

That's one of the great lucid!

Thanks Paul...

Regards John

Great interview

Very eloquent comments by both of you.

Any time a union endorses an anti-imperialist cause they are vilified in the press. Up here in Canada, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (or CUPE) has come under continual attack by the corporate media for its support of a boycott on Israeli goods. The merger of local unions stressing local concerns with international solidarity and anti-imperialist movements rightly scares the sh$t out of elites.

Unfortunately, most unions nowadays are organized much like corporations. They are pyramidal in structure, with leaders often in bed with their corporate overlords. The directly democratic, internationalist IWW model is a good one, and should be pursued wherever a union is in trouble.

The enemy is global, we'll have to become global too if we're going to have a fighting chance.
