Sept. 11, 2008; 6:00 PM ZERO 8:00 IMPROBABLE COLLAPSE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 11, 2001 will be remembered through time; this 7th anniversary can be the completion of a cycle of government-media cover-up and/or an inept investigation of one of the greatest crimes in history. Valley 9/11 Truth has about one hundred members discussing what happened that day, and how it has been used to engage an hysterical foreign affairs plunder, and loss of civil liberties. For those known as 'truthers', the greatest fear is in what could be next, if the unanswered questions of what happened are not resolved.

On Thursday September 11, two films are being presented with discussions with Valley 9/11 Truth in Northampton, MA. The first one begins at 6:00 PM, "Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of Our Republic;" the second at 8:00 - "ZERO, an investigation into the events of 9/11." The latter is a recent Italian film, shown in European Parliament in February 2008 and that will be broadcast on Russian TV this September 12.

"We're trying to change the paradigm of human democracy,
of human governance, and that’s what this [NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative] is
all about, changing the paradigm of human governance right here in New
York City by asserting that you saw something wrong that took place,
and you want to address it through using the tool of the Initiative, the
legislative power of citizenry to go after that fundamental change."

Update on NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative
Les Jamieson reports: Big Week For NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative

History was made on Tuesday, June 17th with the appearance of former Sen. Mike Gravel on Democracy Now with Amy Goodman. Doug Wight, Jose Rodriguez (Sen. Gravel's assistant) and I were there in the studio. It was an amazing experience, being that we've tried so hard for so long to get decent coverage on Democracy Now. I was totally pleased with Amy's detailed setup of the interview. She basically explained what the Initiative is about, articulating that there is this effort calling for a new 9/11 investigation. It was apparent that she was well studied on this and new just what to say. Sen. Gravel got in some good sound bites. He could have gone into more depth, but considering his flight from CA the night before was delayed 2 hours which caused him to get only 3 hours sleep, I have to give him kudos for what he did get across. Here are some direct results of the broadcast:

“Special interests have blocked transition to our renewable energy future.
Instead of moving heavily into renewable energies, fossil companies
choose to spread doubt about global warming, as tobacco companies
discredited the smoking-cancer link. Methods are sophisticated,
including funding to help shape school textbook discussions of
global warming. CEOs of fossil energy companies know what
they are doing and are aware of long-term consequences of
continued business as usual. In my opinion, these CEOs
should be tried for high crimes against humanity and nature."

‘Pentagon Papers senator’ calls for new 9/11 probe

By Jefferson Siegel

Skeptics of the government’s explanation regarding details of the September 11 attacks are trying to put the issue before a larger audience. In an attempt to place a call for a new investigation on November’s ballot, the 9/11 Truth group welcomed former U.S. Senator Mike Gravel to St. Mark’s Church on Tuesday afternoon.

“It’s crunch time,” Gravel said, noting the group hopes to amass at least 40,000 signatures in the next three weeks for a citywide ballot initiative for the November election. The group already has 12,000 signatures.

“This may be our last hope to bring about a serious investigation,” Gravel, who also ran for president earlier this year, told a crowd of several dozen in the plaza facing the church.

“It’s more of a citizens commission rather than a government commission,” he explained.

“The referendum would allow for a legally sanctioned commission with subpoena powers,” said Reverend Frank Morales, a St. Mark’s associate pastor and a member of the 9/11 Truth movement.

Although I was not able to be present at the rally either in person or by telephone, I wanted to express my strong support for the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative.

There has never been a better time to get such an initiative on the ballot, because the 9/11 Truth Movement's case against the official account of 9/11 is now extremely strong---much stronger than it was just two years ago.

Amy Goodman, "Democracy Now!", Dr. William F. Pepper and the NYC ballot initiative.

At the end of Ms. Goodman's recent appearance at Modern Times Bookstore in San Francisco a group of us approached her to get her on the record regarding the need for a new investigation. After waiting patiently for her to finish signing everyone's book, cosmos asked her directly if she thought we needed a new investigation (yes, there is video) and she replied that she thought everything about 9/11 needs to be investigated (cosmos had led with a question about WTC 7).

I asked her if she was familiar with Dr. William Pepper and his new book, she lit up and said she was very interested in his book. I suggested to her that she have him on the show and that she also endorse the NYC 9/11 ballot initiative. She then hurried away with one of her handlers without further comment.

I think one thing we could do, as part of a formal Week of Truth or just informally and beginning immediately, would be to contact Ms. Goodman and Democracy Now! and ask her to have Dr. William Pepper on her show to talk about his book and the NYC ballot initiative.

Video Exclusive: Dr. William F. Pepper Opens the MLK Conspiracy Trial - November 16, 1999

Part One of Two

Part Two of Two

"In answer to the question did Loyd Jowers participate in a conspiracy to do harm to Dr. Martin Luther King, your answer is yes. Do you also find that others, including governmental agencies, were parties to this conspiracy as alleged by the defendant? Your answer to that one is also yes".

Honorable James E. Swearengen, Judge presiding.
The Circuit Court of Shelby County, Tennessee, 30th Judicial District at Memphis, December 8th, 1999

This is the verdict that the jury arrived at, after a trial that started on November 16, 1999. The King family praised the verdict in a press conference the next day;

"There is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. And the civil court's unanimous verdict has validated our belief. I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations. This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. It is a great victory for truth itself. It is important to know that this was a SWIFT verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation. The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband. The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame. I want to make it clear that my family has no interest in retribution. Instead, our sole concern has been that the full truth of the assassination has been revealed and adjudicated in a court of law. As we pursued this case, some wondered why we would spend the time and energy addressing such a painful part of the past. For both our family and the nation, the short answer is that we had to get involved because the system did not work. Those who are responsible for the assassination were not held to account for their involvement. This verdict, therefore, is a great victory for justice and truth. It has been a difficult and painful experience to revisit this tragedy, but we felt we had an obligation to do everything in our power to seek the truth. Not only for the peace of mind of our family but to also bring closure and healing to the nation. We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience. I know that this has been a difficult case for everyone involved. I thank the jury and Judge Swearengen for their commitment to reach a just verdict, I want to also thank our attorneys, Dr. William Pepper and his associates for their hard work and tireless dedication in bringing this case to justice. Dr. Pepper has put many years of his life, as well as his financial resources, into this case. He has made significant personal sacrifices to pursue the search for the truth about my husband's assassination..."

Over the past few weeks I have had the privilege to review footage of this trial, which is a groundbreaking trial, and should be a famous trial due to the implications of the verdict. With Dr. Pepper's permission, I will be loading three key segments from the trial onto the web, for people to see how Dr. Pepper goes about his business. The first segment, (already loaded), is the opening statement, which sets the tone for the plaintiff's case.
