Calling for a Media Focused Protest on 9/11/09!

Calling for a Media Focused Protest on 9/11/09!

By John Bursill – Australian Activist and Engineer

As the anniversary of 9/11 approaches once again it leads us to reflect on what we have achieved and what is yet to be achieved by the 9/11 Truth and Justice Campaign. One thing we all might agree on is that a more “focused” and “deliberate” media campaign is in order this anniversary.
In this last year we have received some very powerful tools to use in our battle against those who would see us fade away as a movement. The most powerful is arguably the “Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe” paper provided, peer reviewed and published by our hard working scholars internationally. While this world-changing evidence has received press in parts of Europe and Asia, it has not been reported on within the corporate media of the “Coalition of the willing”, being predominantly the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. It is important to note these countries are also the major supporters of the “War on Terror” having direct military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan to this day.

What I propose is an all out, all day attempt to get this controversial paper reported on in the press by demonstrating in front of corporate media facilities worldwide. With simply the “Thermitic Materials Paper” in one hand and Architects and Engineers DVD “9/11 Blueprint for Truth” in the other we have a completely rational and non-conspiratorial basis to demand that the press investigate the possibility of controlled demolition of the World Trade Center buildings 1, 2 and 7 on 9/11. It would also be completely reasonable for us to call out the media for its disgraceful reluctance to address the hard evidence disproving the NIST building collapse reports and their clear and biased support of the cover up of the century!

It has been obvious to me as an activist out on the “11th Day of Every Month” that the majority of the public have suspicions that 9/11 involved more than Al Qaeda and believe it highly likely that Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld were involved. By the constant distribution of information throughout the western world by 9/11 Truth groups including and each month and the formidable work of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth and other professional groups we have effectively diminished the media’s power! So by destroying the corporate media’s news credibility with 9/11 Truth we have created an opportunity, for they are feeling a resulting loss in revenue and their own job security is at risk.

So what’s the plan...

1. Call to International Action by all the major web sites “Putting the Heat on the Media this 9/11”

2. Mobilize all 9/11 Activist networks worldwide through , , and

3. Get support of leaders, scholars and web based groups for their membership’s support of this offensive and get them on the street if possible

4. Augmenting the anniversary’s actions by large e-mail volumes the days before, supported by a reminder at the above sites

5. Keep the actions simple and concise by;

• Focusing on the Thermitic Materials Paper censorship by the media and handing copies to the media at the actions
• Handing out the “9/11 Blueprint for Truth” DVD and pushing its credible and large support base of 750 architects and engineers
• Strongly representing the families’ desire for a new investigation and their frustration with the media’s inadequacies
• Reminding the media of what has been done in the name of the victims of 9/11 and how they continue to report on the official conspiracy theory as if fact without hard corroborating evidence

6. A real focus on appearance and at least the activist leaders putting on a shirt and tie to present us in the best light in case of interview.

In conclusion to this call I would like to remind you all that each time we have had a media focus on the 11th we have had success in getting attention. As a direct result we have seen Building 7 shown on TV so now let’s get the Thermitic Paper reported on. Besides, even if we do not get any direct media coverage we will get the information into the hands of the journalists, further undermining their editorial control and increasing our chances of potential news pieces.

I sent this out three days ago to gage the interest level and have recieved a very positive response and supporters of the idea include;

Dr Steven Jones
Dr Frank Legge
Carol Brouillet
Dr David Leifer

Just to name a few!

Please get this idea out there by e-mail or web!

Great, but don't let alternative media off the hook.

Great idea.
We have all we need to make the case that the official 9/11 story is a fraud.
All we need now is media attention.

But I think it is the alternative media that we should go after.
Yes, the msm have ignored us. But who would have thought otherwise.
We don't have a chance with them (sorry to sound so pessimistic, but it is true).

What is the big surprise, unfortunately, is that the alternative media has been just as bad as the msm in ignoring 9/11 truth. In fact, in some ways worse, as there have been many articles in alternative media insulting the movement. Joshua Holland, a senior editor and writer of Alternet, is one who has consistently insulted the 9/11 truth movement. There are others.

Here are just some of the alternative media outlets that should be considered as oppositional to the reality of 9/11:

Democracy Now with Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez
Alternet with Justin Raimondo
the Nation magazine
Mother Jones

There is NO excuse for these venues to have ignored our movement for YEARS! We need to know why they will fully cover and oppose the invasions, wars and occupations these last few years, the torture issue, the brutality against Palestinians, the Patriot Act, wiretapping, and the rest...............and still be completely silent, or insulting, to the glaring and blatant evidence that the official story of 9/11 is a lie, and the truth has been covered up.

Is it the owners of these organizations? Is it a campaign of threats and pressure by the government? Is it the potential loss of funding by the big foundations that support many of these, foundations that are linked to the very centers of elite international power?
Are there no journalists or former/present editors that could come forward and admit the censorship and tell us what is going on?

There IS a conspiracy by alternative media to censor 9/11 truth. We've got to find out how this is done and why. Time is running out. We are in danger of being an issue that people will not care about someday. I wish I had the slightest lead to find out specifically why an alternative site like Alternet will absolutely censor the evidence that 9/11 official story is a lie. Maybe somebody else can figure it out. Please do.

Did This Already So far No Reaction

When the student is ready the teacher will come.

Hello Truthseekers & Truthtellers,
We recently sponsored Dr. Bob Bowman who is on his 2009 Patriot Tour and I personally hand delivered packets of information to all the major television stations in Milwaukee which are Channels 4, 6, 12 and 58. I also delivered a packet to our major newspaper the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In each packet they were given the nano-thermite paper (in color) and the DVD's Blueprint For Truth with ae911truth flyer, Press For Truth and In Thier Own Words the Untold Stories of the 9/11 Victim Families along with a flyer to hear Dr. Bob Bowman speak. In the past they have also received packets of 9/11 Truth information for other events we've sponsored. I always leave a card with contact information and have only been contacted once back in 2006 when we organized an activist event for the Tea Parties that we had on December 19th, 2006. Channel 12 did a short piece on this and it was televised. They only sent a camera man to do it. Since then the news organizations in this town have done nothing except for a few stories on Kevin Barrett. The Bob Bowman event was August 2nd, 2009 and I have heard nothing from the news organizations of the recent packet of 9/11 Truth information I gave them. I will continue to give them information in the future in the hopes that someday they will do some real investigative journalism. I now do my own show called MEET THE TRUTH on public access television in West Allis, WI channel 14 which has a population of about 62,000 people. Dr. Bob Bowman's speaking event is going to be on twice a week for the next month. We have to become the media in every way we can and I encourage anyone that reads this to find your local access media stations and get involved in 9/11 Truth programing.

Forget the major news organizations.............

They are obviously under some kind of stringent rules to censor 9/11.

Focus on the alternative media.
The alternative media has not been our friend.
They have consistently, and across the board, censored 9/11 truth.
They have been no better than the msm.
And yet we treat them better.

We need to embarrass the alternative media venues............they might be a lot more sensitive to complaints and protests from the 9/11 movement, as they arrogantly tell us that they give ALL the news that the msm will not tell us............they tell us that they do not shy away from the truth and bravely go where the msm will not trod.
But we can expose their soft underbelly..............9/11. They should be shamed into finally exposing the truth of 9/11.

If just one alternative site.............say DemocracyNow or maybe Alternet...........would begin a big campaign of articles about 9/11 truth, I think some other alternative sites would be embarrassed into doing the same. Eventually the truth would reach millions, and the pressure then would be on the msm.

We need to find out just WHY the alternative media will not cover 9/11 truth. In my opinion, it is not because it is so outrageous that none of the people in the alternative media could believe it. After WMD and corrupted presidential elections and so much more corruption, the editors and writers of these media outlets are not completely shocked by the real story of 9/11. They are censoring 9/11 truth because of some kind of pressure or threats, or maybe their own agendas.

If they are purposely censoring this information, for any reason, I think it comes under the category of treason. It is just too impolite to call the people in the alternative media treasonous? Is that too bold?

National Press Club

I just got an email from Tom at AE911Truth in response to a message I sent about getting Richard Gage to speak at the National Press Club in Washington, DC to announce 750 Architects and Engineers now calling for a new investigation.

He asked me where I am and how I can help, etc. Well, I honestly don't know how to help make it happen. I know the Jersey Girls appeared there in 2006, and I know that people like Steven Greer, of the Disclosure Project have appeared there, so it doesn't seem like an impossible task. Maybe if we contact them, it would help.

National Press Club:
Front Desk: 202-662-7500

And AE911Truth could send a press release, of course.

I suggested this now because 750 is a hell of a milestone that sounds extremely compelling... And I would like to see it done this year, in 2009, and 1,000 might take until next year. (And there is no guarantee that the 1,000 number would result in a Press Conference either.) Plus I was hoping that he could mention NYC CAN if that effort was still pending. (We could also contact the NPC about NYC CAN).

"How to" Media Writeup

The Dallas Morning News has their "writeup". See the links below.
"How to Get Your News into The Dallas Morning News"-->
Media Access Guide

Example: Cindy Sheehan or Cynthia McKinney or Richard Gage or Barry Jennings
About a dozen PRESS covered Sheehan in Dallas this summer
~~One aspect of the news is the human interest story. When you read the news or watch the TV news, notice all the stories about individuals, or the individuals involved in a subject matter. Individuals are interviewed or covered when addressing a content or subject. <--(reference the Dallas Morning News media access)

College Newspapers and small town newspapers have strong potential for article submissions and "Letters to the Editor". LIST:
This University 'accidently-on-purpose' froze the online page comments to the front where the 9/11 article is still prominent from a year ago

John has a very strong point. The Action to get the Media to cover 9/11 Truth starts with each one of us individually. Weekly, I submit comments or queries or the thermitic paper or ' news' to local media. However, if more individuals take responsibility and submit 9/11 Truth aspects to local media, eventually we will see coverage. It boils down to each of us to take responsibility for our zone of influence.

Sydney 9/11 Truth Action, ABC Studios Ultimo 11am - 4pm 9/11/09

The time to do is here!

Of the ass, take the day off...whatever get out there and do something!

What I propose is action that is back stepping, onward and upward to truth and justice for the victims of 9/11. That is all of and tomorrow and especially on 9/11!

Get serious, get academic and hard evidence based and become the activist the world needs.

Kind regards John

9/11 24/7 UNTIL JUSTICE!!

"No attempt" results in "no media coverage". Steel our spines.

Bursill has a good plan. We must continue to attempt to get this information into the mainstream. Some Truthers sometimes get silly because the give up on an action prior to actually DOING an if they are waiting for a crowd to rally with them (which is a sheeple attitude).
Actions start somewhere...actions start with me. Actions start with you. No action equals no result.

During the time it takes to write a comment here, a person could submit something to a local media.
This is not going to be an easy war of truth. It will take tenacity and spine. We actually have had coverage of aspects of 9/11 on mainstream channels and papers in the past. Let's continue to push. Do your part.

William F Pepper fought for media attention for years (Court case 1999 which proved the government conspired to kill King). His advice is pretty damn good.
