Truthmove.org Reports on 9/11/2006 Events in NYC


Truthmove members get invited to participate in Buddhist prayer

Ground Zero - 9/11/06 - truthmove.org

This year's demonstration at Ground Zero was the largest rally for 9/11 truth to date. The energy was amazing, as 9/11 activists peacefully mingled with other progressive activists, police and fire fighters, those visiting the site of their loss, religious groups, bikers, random onlookers, and even people who were there in a coordinated effort to debunk our assertions. At different times there appeared to be between 600 and 1000 activists attending. Hundreds of people wore black shirts provided by the Loose Change crew, that said "Investigate 9/11." Our presence and purpose were unmistakable to anyone who visited Ground Zero that day. Despite a great deal of aggressive taunting from a few people insulted by our presence, the day went by without any unfortunate incidents.
..
While many in the movement have both academic and political differences, the most compelling overall sense of the experience was one of our unity. When we are all out on the street together, all fighting for the same cause, especially in the eyes of others, all subject to the same prejudice, a lot of our differences seem less important. Let's all hold on to a bit of that feeling as we go back to our various pursuits.

Outside U.N., protesters urge Bush to end Iraq war

NEW YORK, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Thousands of protesters including former American soldiers rallied outside U.N. headquarters on Tuesday, urging the U.S. government to end the war in Iraq and bring home the troops.

Nearby, about 200 other protesters demonstrated against the presence of the Iranian president, others called for human rights in Myanmar, and just a handful demonstrated to press claims the United States orchestrated the Sept. 11 attacks.

While world leaders gathered at the U.N. General Assembly inside, about 2,000 anti-Iraq war protesters chanted "Peace can work, no more war" half an hour before U.S. President George W. Bush spoke.

"This war has drained the economy and has cost a lot of lives," said Claire Thompson, a nurse and union leader. "We're calling on our leaders to end this unsustainable war and just bring the troops back home."

There have been 2,681 U.S. military deaths since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to Pentagon figures, and 147,000 U.S. troops are serving there. At least tens of thousands of Iraqis also have died in the war.

We are in a crisis right now. It’s known to us, more than it was known to almost anyone outside the White House in 1969. A genuine crisis.......
The situation now, I think, demands of us not business as usual; it demands what was available in this country in 1969. I’ll characterize that very briefly: 5,000 young people went to prison rather then go into the Army (under the draft)—rather then collaborate with the war. I met some of those people on their way to prison. They put in my mind the thought: They’re doing everything they can, nonviolently—they were followers of Martin Luther King, of Thoreau, of Gandhi. Truthfully and nonviolently they are changing their lives, they are giving up their future, their career, they are doing everything they can to avert this war. That’s the right thing to do. What can I do now, what can I do if I’m ready to go to prison? Among other things, I started copying the Pentagon Papers—which did confront me with a possible prison sentence of 115 years—at that point. Was that too much to take on?................
.What’s needed at home of course is people who will change their lives and risk their careers and their jobs and their relationships with their families, their bosses, with their church groups, whoever—by taking a stronger stand than those people are ready to take. And by saying truths that those people don’t want to hear. Without that courage, policies like this can’t be changed. With it, they may not be changed, we may fail. But, without that kind of courage and that mass mobilization, there is no chance.................

Taking to the streets on 9/11

Thanks to Carol for sending this in:
 
 
On the morning of 9/11, I couldn’t watch the reading of names on NY1.Not five years in a row. I clicked off the ritual of bereaved families, somber politicos and media scripters and went to work on the computer. Before I knew it, it was 1 o’clock. Something gnawed. I needed to go down to Ground Zero, at least to pay my respects to the gone. Yet what I found was very alive. Thousands of 9/11 Truth Movement members shouting,, "9/11 was an inside job, 9/11 was an inside job.” This interspersed with the raspy voice of Alex Jones booming the facts of the Towers’ demise on a bullhorn. But this was no bull. This was a whole new ballgame.
 
There were cordons of cops in black and blue, white shirt officers, the brass, the suits, the shooters with burp guns and helmets, tactical cops in caps.

Hit Piece: "The Conspiracy of the 9/11." But Czechs Fight Back.

Mf Dnes hit piece. "Circus CIA" screenshot

A hit piece article, not far fetched to be described as mostly based on pure demagogic overtures appeared in one of the most distributed Czech daily newspapers, the Mf Dnes, which is seen by many as rather renowned outlet for its regular unbalanced and slanderous political "journalism".

But firstly, to tackle another recent controversy, the Mf Dnes editorials called for unquestionable and unconditional support for accommodating a proposed US military missile/radar base which should be part of the controversial anti-ballistic missile system deployed within the Central European region and outside the NATO/EU security structures. Despite the, fact that the first '06 summer poll showed 83% opposition across the party line of the general Czech public to such a proposal.

Grassroots rallies "Ne zakladnam! No to bases!" and antiwar initiatives have mobilized against both the large part of the corporate as well as the public broadcasting media, which were firstly reluctant to cover the issue before the summer parliamentary elections at all. Large chunk of the media later jumping on the unpopular pro base rightwing government bandwagon.

Although, the author of the main conspiracy article and additional "expert" interview did plug the recent Scripps – University of Ohio poll and also mockingly mentioned in passing the science community on the issue (not mentioning specifically 9/11 Scholars for Truth or any individuals) the articles were conducted in bluntly uninformed, and dishonest distractive manner, not unlike the infamous Ann Coulter style.

A National Grassroots Campaign to Illuminate the 2006 Electoral Stage with 9/11 Truth

I believe I posted this a while back, but definitely worth revisiting, sign up today:

http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20060721202752870

Fine Motives, Means & Opportunities
To commemorate the great 9/11 Commission cover-up released on July 22, 2004, 9/11truth.org and MUJCA-Net are proud to announce the launch of "Politics 911" -- a focused 4-month campaign to enlighten the 2006 electoral debate with a nationwide spotlight on 9/11 truth.

As the name implies "Politics 911" is an emergency campaign to help return democratic control, self-respect and political adulthood to the American electorate. To that end we plan to gratefully exploit:

  • the rising tide of 9/11 skepticism;
  • the dispersion & diversity of local 9/11 activist groups;
  • the organizing & communicative genius of the Internet; and
  • the political theater of the 2006 elections
    in order to saturate pre-election events with substantive 9/11 truth questions and their implications for revolutionary reform.

    Course of Action
    The campaign's initial goal is to require every candidate running for the US House or Senate in 2006 to publicly declare whether he/she will support a truly independent re-investigation* of the events surrounding 9/11 including evidence of US government foreknowledge, facilitation and/or complicity. This will be accomplished and augmented with the following steps:

    Conspiracy Types Lecture Regular Folks at Ground Zero - The Village Voice: Power Plays

    The fifth anniversary of 9-11 brought more sorrow and anguish to New York, but also more questioning of the official narrative of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon.

    Hundreds of 9-11 conspiracists paraded across the street from ground zero Monday with their brazen signs—"9-11 WAS A U.S. BLACK OP"—during the solemn reading of the names of the 2,749 who perished in the twin towers. A surprising many people stopped to listen and seriously consider the "proof" offered by members of the so-called 9-11 truth movement, who spent the day lecturing people about how the towers were felled by explosives.
    ..
    "Well, I do have questions," remarked one woman who came by on her lunch hour. "Like how were these hijackers who could barely fly a Cessna supposed to have piloted big planes into these buildings?"

    A manic guy with bleach-blond hair seized on that to launch a rant about the maximum flame temperature of jet fuel and the physics of molten steel, dismissing recent efforts by the U.S. State Department and the National Institute of Standards and Technology to counter such rampant, freeform "expertise" as yet more "propaganda."

    "Idiots!" shrieked a man overhearing him. "You guys probably believe Elvis is still alive."

    But if people have doubts about what happened, it shouldn’t be surprising considering the lengths the Bush administration has gone to manipulate 9-11 and distort pre-war intelligence to justify the war in Iraq. And when people needed clear information about the air quality downtown, the feds instead gave them false assurances.

    Thanks OWN the NWO for the heads up!

    Report on Protests from NYC

    Just got a first hand report from JR Guerra as to the activities this morning in NYC.

    First off, he said that the protests at Ground Zero this morning went well. He approximated 2,000 activists at Ground Zero and said there was no provocation and that everyone behaved well. He said that Korey Rowe had handed out 800 copies of LC2E, and 200+ t-shirts. He said that once they had left Ground Zero they went to the financial district to protest in front of Spitzer's office and Silverstein's office, and that the police were very nice and had blocked off all of Broadway street for them. He said that they were currently on the way to city hall and were still running strong with a very large group of protesters.

    So, since I can't find anyone at all reporting on it I think this is the first report, please post other reports in the comments as you come across them.

    Big thanks to JR Guerra for the first hand info!

    Bin Laden, Most Wanted For Embassy Bombings?

    The question is, why hasn't he been indicted? According to this, OBL was indicted for a terrorist attack in 1999, but they can't be bothered to indict him for 9/11? The largest attack ever on U.S. soil, responsible for 2 wars and countless more in the future? Thanks to Michael, Ray, and Truth01 for sendin this in:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/08/27/AR2006082700687.html

    Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden is a longtime and prominent member of the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted" list, which notes his role as the suspected mastermind of the deadly U.S. embassy bombings in East Africa on Aug. 7, 1998. But another more infamous date -- Sept. 11, 2001 -- is nowhere to be found on the same FBI notice.

    The curious omission underscores the Justice Department's decision, so far, to not seek formal criminal charges against bin Laden for approving al-Qaeda's most notorious and successful terrorist attack. The notice says bin Laden is "a suspect in other terrorist attacks throughout the world" but does not provide details.

    Professor's 9/11 theories outrage NH leaders

    Good, because these "leaders" unwillingness to do anything about this particular situation has outraged all of us for years. Another professor comes forward, follow the link to the article where you will have an opportunity to submit feedback.

    http://tinyurl.com/lghto

    A tenured professor of psychology at the University of New Hampshire believes an "elite" group within the federal government orchestrated the September 11th attacks on America.

    William Woodward has already raised that possibility in his classroom and later this year hopes to teach a class that would explore Sept. 11th "in psychological terms -- terms like belief, conspiracy, fear, truth, courage, group dynamics."

    He may not get the chance. Several state leaders yesterday criticized Woodward for bringing the radical theories into the classroom.
