Bay Are 9/11 Truth Events
by Carol Brouillet
Wednesday Aug 23rd, 2006 8:52 PM
Film makers, activists, candidates, researchers, outraged citizens, truth-seekers, are taking action, producing events, films, books, art, music to challenge the Big Lie about 9/11. On the fifth anniversary of 9/11, the country is divided into doubters of the official story and the misinformed. A bevy of 9-11 Truth events are coming up in the Bay Area, NY, all over the world.
The Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance is part of a much larger 9/11 Truth Movement that has been acknowledged, (and attacked) by the mainstream press. According to the May, Zogby Poll, commissioned by “45% of Americans "say that so many unanswered questions about 9/11 remain that Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success." Together with the anti-war movement, the impeachment movement, we comprise a growing, substantial size of the population, and we continue to grow in strength and numbers, as more and more people become aware of the suppressed facts about 9/11, and the Administration’s credibility continues to plummet.

This year we have organized and helped with a large number of events, and rallies, and have helped to produce, showcase, and distribute 9/11 Truth documentaries, films, books, magazines locally, in Chicago, in Los Angeles, to community access television stations across the country, through our 911 TV project. Mainstream television stations are not only interviewing us, but actually airing some of what we have to say!

The San Francisco Bay Guardian, Pacifica, KPFA are co-sponsoring upcoming 9/11 Truth events. Academics are adding their powerful voice to the demand for truth, reason, and our right and responsibility to question our government’s words and actions. and raised over $8,000 at the Chicago Int’l 9/11 Revealing the Truth, Reclaiming the Future Conference to raise 9/11 as a political issue during the 2006 Elections. 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.

They plan to publish All Candidate Responses on the Internet and highlight a list of candidates who are featuring 9/11 truth in their analyses and campaigns. (This will present truth-concerned readers with the opportunity to contribute time, energy and resources to promising campaigns in their regions.)

Encourage Widespread Bird-dogging at all public electoral events with crowd- & thought-provoking 9/11 questions, until every campaign spokesperson will have to have a briefing paper on the candidate's position re 9/11 truth.

Contribute Personalized 9/11 Teaching Materials to communities where truth candidates are contending with official story defenders. "Politics 9/11" co-sponsors will prepare the briefing kits, publication website, and teaching materials, but needs an enormous amount of grassroots involvement to make this campaign work.

It’s possible that this campaign will be verbally launched during the premieres of 9/11 Press for Truth, which hopes to force a genuine investigation of 9/11, that will ask the hard questions, into existence.

The polls do reflect a country divided, where half do not have the basic facts about 9/11, and most of the soldiers still believe the “Big Lie” that Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11. Hollywood, hand in hand with the government, are producing movies, television shows to sell their version of events, but the talented legions of 9/11 Truth Activists are countering with a blossoming number of powerful communications tools, as well as old fashioned leaflets, handouts, books, to reach out to people directly, and via all sorts of new, independent, in the public interest, media collaborations.

Here are the upcoming 9/11 Bay Area Truth Events. In New York, major events are also happening at Ground Zero, is the primary organizer, but the producers of the internet hit "Loose Change" are also calling on everyone to join them at ground Zero on 9/11 to demand a real investigation of 9/11.

Bay Area 9-11 Truth Events

Premiere of “9/11 Press For Truth”
Thursday, September 7, 2006
Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Lake Avenue
Oakland, California, 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm screenings

Intro, Q & A with Bay Area’s Emmy-winning Ken Ellis, Co-Executive Producer. 9/11 Press For Truth.

Following the attacks of September 11th, grieving families waged a tenacious battle against those who sought to bury the truth about the attack, including the Bush administration. In “9/11 Press For Truth,” those most effected by the tragedy, including three of the “Jersey Girls,” tell the story of how they took on the powers in Washington and won. They forced an investigation, only to subsequently watch the 9/11 Commission fail to even ask their most urgent questions.

Adapting Paul Thompson’s Complete 9/11 Timeline, the film stitches together news clips, buried stories and government press conferences, revealing a pattern of official lies, deception and spin. Thompson’s narrative presents a different picture of 9/11, one that raises new, more pressing questions.

What actions were taken by top government officials who received dozens of specific warnings before the attack? Was Bin Laden and his top al Qaeda leadership allowed to escape in Afghanistan? What has been the reason for obscuring the evidence regarding the Pakistani connection? Why, five years later, are so many of the families’ questions still unanswered?

Tickets are $10. and proceeds benefit Cooperative Research and the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance. For preview, go to
