Join us on this ten-year anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11 as we explore the truth of this traumatic event and what it means. As we mourn our losses, we seek to honor the dead and dying by fearlessly understanding 9/11 as a crime. Through film, the spoken word, music, art, revolutionary comedy, action, and dialogue--and in solidarity with events in Toronto, Seattle, and New York--we will gather to share stories, insights, research and feelings about that day, the forgotten history that led up to it, and the decade that followed. Those brave enough to seek, find, and champion the truth about 9/11 have encountered enormous obstacles and resistance. The official story of what happened on 9/11, which has been used to justify endless war abroad and restriction of freedoms at home, has been accepted by a majority of the American people only because there has been a massive cover-up of what really happened on that day. The Battle of Story is greater than the Story of Battle.
Will reason, love, and concern triumph over panic, fear and despair? Will we end war, or will war end humanity? Is there an alternative to the fusion of corporate and government power that trumps local, regional and national sovereignty and threatens every facet of our lives?
Join us as we explore such questions, as well as the myths and realities that surround this watershed moment in our history.
This year The Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance will hold our 7th annual 9/11 truth film festival at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland Thursday September 8, 2011, beginning at 1 pm, and at the Herbst Theatre in San Francisco Sunday, September 11, 2011, beginning at 1 pm. We will also also gather at the Gandhi Statue, near the Ferry Building, in San Francisco at 10 am, Sunday, September 11th, for our tenth annual 9/11 Truth March/Parade, which will pass by Justin Herman Plaza, Hallidie Plaza, UN Plaza, to the Civic Center, close to the San Francisco War Memorial Veterans Building, where the Herbst Theater is located at 401 Van Ness Avenue (at McAllister).
In 2004, the Herbst Theatre hosted the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11 in solidarity with the Toronto International Citizens Inquiry into 9/11 and a 9/11 Citizens Commission in New York. This year we will include live streaming of some of the Toronto hearings, and the event in Seattle that is being organized by Erik Lawyer, founder of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth. ONE: The Event - Shifting from Fear to Love in Seattle, Washington, will include a “Global Synchronized Moment of Love" at 3:46 pm on September 11, 2011 harnessing our collective intention to shift to love-based, collaborative solutions for our planetary thriving.”
