Please Support the Toronto Hearings

Dear Fellow 9/11 Truth Seekers,

I am writing today to ask you to support the Toronto Hearings on the Events of September 11, 2001. The Toronto Hearings are being sponsored by the International Center for 9/11 Studies - an organization I founded - and will take place at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada.

The Toronto Hearings will be held around the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, September 8-11, 2001. They have the potential to be a significant turning point in our quest for 9/11 Truth and Justice. The details are still being worked out, but I'd like to give you a general idea of our vision for the Hearings. This will not be the typical 9/11 speakers conference. This is an effort to gather, present, document and distribute the most credible and persuasive evidence that the official account of the 9/11 attacks does not tell the whole story. The expert witnesses will be carefully chosen by the Steering and Advisory Committees as those who can present the best, most weighty evidence available. The witness testimony will be moderated, and presented to an international panel of highly credible citizens, who will listen to the witnesses and engage in discussions with them. The ultimate goal of the Toronto Hearings will be for the citizen panel to draft a final report, which catalogs the evidence presented and provides the findings and recommendations of the panel.

These hearings cannot be successful without your support. The International Center for 9/11 Studies needs funding to pay for the space and equipment needed at Ryerson University, as well as travel and accommodations for the moderators, citizen panel, and expert witnesses. Again, we cannot do this without your help.

In an effort to encourage donations for this and future efforts of the Center, I have engaged a law firm (at significant personal expense) that specializes in representing non-profit organizations. Our law firm has incorporated the International Center for 9/11 Studies as a non-profit corporation, and is preparing to file an application with the IRS to give the Center tax-favored 501(c)(3) status. You can find a letter from our law firm addressed to potential donors at this link. The letter indicates that all contributions made to the Center during its application for 501(c)(3) status qualify as tax-deductible charitable donations.

Please make a generous tax-deductible donation to the Center and help us make the Toronto Hearings a success.

Since its inception in 2008, the International Center for 9/11 Studies has sponsored a number of important projects, the biggest and most successful of which was securing the release of thousands of photographs and hundreds of hours of video footage from the National Institute of Standards and Technology under the Freedom of Information Act. The Center had to file and prosecute a lawsuit in federal court, which is still ongoing, (again, at significant personal expense) to force NIST to release these materials. The Center has also made these materials available to the public, free of charge. Already, a number of important new contributions to the evidentiary record have been uncovered in these materials, which have been viewed more than 3 million times on the Center's YouTube channel alone. The funding for this lawsuit, and all of the Center's projects to date, have come out of my own pocket. However, I cannot personally fund the Toronto Hearings, nor can the Steering Committee, which is why I'm asking you to support this most worthy cause.

Thank you for your support.


I donated!

It's great to know that the International Center for 9/11 Studies is becoming a non-profit corporation -- congratulations on that. I plan on being there . . .

Objective: "...To single out the most weighty evidence..."

Objectives of the Hearings:

(1) To present evidence that the U.S. government’s official investigation into the events of September 11, 2001, as pursued by various government and government-appointed agencies, is seriously flawed and has failed to describe and account for the 9/11 events.

2) To single out the most weighty evidence of the inadequacy of the U.S. government’s investigation; to organize and classify that evidence; to preserve that evidence; to make that evidence widely known to the public and to governmental, non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations.

(3) To submit a record and a summary of the Hearings, together with signed Statutory Declarations by witnesses, to relevant governments, groups and international agencies with the request that a full and impartial investigation be launched into the events of September 11, 2001, which have been used to initiate military invasions and to restrict the rights of citizens.

(4) To engage the attention of the public and media through witness testimony as well as through public talks and media events during the four day event.

The following individuals have agreed to participate as... witnesses:
Niels Harrit
David Chandler
Richard Gage,
Steven Jones
Jon Cole.

...confirmed witnesses:
Peter Dale Scott
David Ray Griffin
Laurie Manwell
Graeme MacQueen
Lance DeHaven-Smith

There is a list of other witnesses who will soon be asked to participate. There will also be addresses, during the day and in the evenings, by eyewitnesses and by members of 9/11 victims families.

Good post, Tom, thanks!

Good post, Tom, thanks!

This deserves full support

A measured, well put-together conference, by the looks of it.
I am sure there are others who, like me, would be interested to attend but cannot make the trip from another continent!
I will be adding financial support, alerting others and looking out for full YouTube video coverage of the event?

Support & Sponsor... I agree

"2011 the year of evidence-based research..."
"...The Toronto Hearings Steering Committee would like to make an appeal to all citizens around the world who are sincerely committed to discovering the truth about the attacks of September 11. Let’s make 2011 the year of evidence-based research. If you cannot spare the time to do your own research, or do not have the skills, please consider supporting a Toronto Hearings participant by contributing an amount toward paying for that participant’s travel and accommodation...."

My gratitude to for running this story about "The Toronto Hearings" on their news site Monday, May16th. InfoWars reaches a broad audience.
Hopefully, other alternative media outlets will help promote this landmark event. I would like to see RT run an interview with James G or Kevin R.
