Cincinnati 9/11 Truth marching in the yearly 4th of July Parade www.cincy911.org
dc911truth.org first participated in the Takoma Park Maryland 4th of July parade in 2006 with an information table. That effort was so successful that we decided to enter a float in the parade the following year, 2007. This is our second year to have a float in the parade and we have found it to be a great way to reach a large audience with a minimum of effort and expense (and it is a lot of fun!)

Well, yesterday was absolutely incredible. Clear blue skies, and perfect temperatures to be outside in the sun. Though some in our group at first had reservations about participating in a parade meant to show support and acceptance to Vancouver's gay and lesbian community, I am very happy to say it was our most successful group action so far. An estimated three hundred thousand open minded and curious people saw our message and unity, and we quite nearly ran out of free material to give away. Though I personally was manning the "home base" tent on the beach with a few others while the parade and crowds were winding their way towards us, there was a tremendous amount of positive feedback displayed during the parade, with some people erupting into spontaneous applause and chants of "9/11 was an inside job!" To be sure, there were a few negative outbursts as well, but these were outnumbered by far by the amount of cheers, support, and thanks that we received.
This is a village that donated over three times more to Republicans than Democrats in the 2004 elections. The same Powell that Bush visited a year ago to help with a DeWine fund raiser. And yes, Republican Congressman Pat Tiberi was in the parade as well. Did I mention it's a predominately Republican town??
The highlight of our display was a seven foot tall reproduction of the 9/11 Commission Report, complete with the required holes throughout, some VERY LARGE (e.g. two planes – three buildings = one has to wonder.)
The book rode in the bed of a pickup that was adorned with banners all around. The left and right sides featured Bush's very fitting quote:
“We must speak the truth about terror. Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th.”
