About the Green Festival... Back in January 2002 when we marched to demand a Congressional Investigation of 9/11, one person was particularly key to the meeting and the publicity- that was Kevin Danaher of Global Exchange, who came up with the idea of "Demanding an investigation." Kevin has been an ally of the Truth Movement from the very beginning and is one of the few people who does a lot of public speaking, is highly visible, articulate and speaks out on the issue. This is the second time that we have actually had a booth at the Green Festival, it is a wonderful event and a great outreach opportunity for us. I asked Kevin about getting a 9/11 speaker and he said that he would address the issue- so be sure to catch his presentation and make sure he doesn't forget to mention it! Let us combine the Turth, Peace and Justice Movements in an environment where we are welcome! Our booth is #954 (in the East), north of the main stage/auditorium area this year. If you can help with set-up (on Friday), breakdown (on Sunday evening), tabling, please volunteer at the regular meetings, or contact- Carol cbrouillet(at)igc.org.

The Green Festival has some great speakers and you can learn more about it by visiting the website at- http://www.greenfestivals.org

"Think of Green Festival® as a walk through a sustainable community. It begins with finding solutions to help make our lives healthier—socially, economically and environmentally. Individuals along with business and community leaders come together to discuss critical issues that impact us at home and abroad. Organizations and businesses showcase programs and products that restore the planet and all that inhabit it. Neighbor-to-neighbor connections are formed, and skills are shared to empower people to create positive change in the world.
"Join us at the nation’s premier sustainability event, where you will see the best in green. Enjoy more than 125 renowned authors, leaders and educators; great how-to workshops; cutting-edge films; fun activities for kids; organic beer and wine; delicious vegetarian cuisine and diverse live music. Shop in our unique marketplace of more than 350 eco-friendly businesses—everything from all-natural body care products and organic cotton clothing to Fair Trade gifts and beautiful kitchen tiles made from renewable resources.

"See the most recent developments in renewable energy and green technology; sample Fair Trade chocolate and coffee (yes, they really do taste better); and learn how to invest in your community, green your home and avoid products made in sweatshops.

"Recharge your batteries with all the hope, inspiration and practical ideas you’ll find at the one and only Green Festival®.
