As the ten-year anniversary approaches, the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance is organizing its annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival to be held on Thursday, September 8, beginning at 1:00 pm at the Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Ave., Oakland, and on Sunday, September 11, beginning at 1:00 pm at the Herbst Theatre, 401 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco.
Speakers and filmmakers include:
In addition to the films “Psywar: The Real Battlefield Is the Mind,” “You, Me & the SPP: Trading Democracy for Corporate Rule,” “Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup,” “Hypothesis: A Documentary about Prof. Stephen E. Jones,” and “9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out,” there will be live streaming from 9/11 events in Toronto and Seattle.
TORONTO, August 8, 2011 — A decade after the events of September 11, 2001, which resulted in the immediate deaths of nearly 3,000 people on American soil, countless victims from toxic dust, and hundreds of thousands of deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq, international hearings on this pivotal event will begin in Toronto in September.
The events of September 11 provided a pretext for a War on Terror that has led to military invasions and occupations, and attacks upon civil and human rights throughout the world. The credibility of the official investigation into the events of September 11, 2001, carried out by the U.S. Government between 2003 and 2005, has been questioned by millions of citizens in the United States and abroad, including victim family members, expert witnesses and international legal experts.
To date, open and transparent judicial hearings to question the official evidence provided by the U.S. Government have never taken place in the United States or abroad. Similarly, no perpetrators of the events of September 11 have ever been brought to justice on American soil.
A group of international citizens has therefore undertaken to privately fund and cause these independent hearings to take place. Because of the global ramifications of the events of 9/11, the initiators of this inquest have opted to select an international location outside of the United States for these hearings to proceed. The city of Toronto, Canada was chosen as an ideal “international” location because of its proximity to New York, Washington and Shanksville (the… Continue reading

October2011.org seeks to Stop the Machine and Create a New World. It can be done. Indeed, it must be done and now is the time to do it. The thousands who have joined October2011.org know the challenges we face but we also know that the disastrous direction the country is going is unacceptable. We have seen that the normal tools – elections, lobbying and education – do not work. The U.S. is facing a crisis on many fronts – economic, environmental and in foreign relations – and the government does not respond or even makes things worse.
We certainly understand the despair, lost hope and discouragement that many Americans feel about the U.S. political system. The system seems designed to make change impossible. We also see the power and sophistication of the corporate propaganda media machine. But, we also see people in the United States seeing through the propaganda, understanding the truth and getting angry. In every rebellion around the world that has occurred in the last year – from Egypt to Spain – the view that it can’t be done, the people will not rise up would have been the belief of 95% of the population before it happened. Predicting the future is not as easy as it looks. There is a lot of evidence that the time may be right for an American Awakening. The past is not always the future.

Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth Brings Together
Leaders of Many Faiths and Belief Systems to Honor Those Who Perished
NEW YORK, NY — A variety of religious and spiritual leaders will hold a memorial service to honor those who died as a result of the 9/11 attacks, and provide spiritual succor and encouragement to all those who still grieve over the events of that tragic day. The service will take place on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village at 10:00 a.m. The service will be followed by a fellowship time, including refreshments.
Hosted by Father Frank Morales, an Episcopal priest, and Rev. Ian Alterman, an evangelical minister, the service will bring together faith leaders and spiritual leaders from a variety of traditions, and will include prayers, intercessions, music, songs, sermons, and respectful memorials. Also participating will be survivors and surviving family members.
Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth believes — as do thousands of scientists and professionals including architects, engineers, pilots, firefighters, first responders, and 9/11 family members — that there are still many unanswered questions with regard to the attacks, and facts which contradict many aspects of the official story, and that faith leaders do a disservice to those who died if they do not do as almost every faith traditions instructs, and seek the truth.
As faith leaders, the members of Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth consider it a moral duty to seek this truth, no matter the challenges, and… Continue reading

#OCCUPYWALLSTREET started last Saturday, when 5,000 Americans descended on to the financial district of Lower Manhattan, held a people’s assembly and set up an encampment in Zuccotti Park on Liberty Street, a stone’s throw from Wall Street and a block from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Three hundred spent the night, several hundred reinforcements arrived the next day and dug in for a long-term stay. Call in sick, invite your friends, hop on a bus or plane to New York City — join us! We’re now in DAY 4.
Greetings from Occupied Wall Street,
Posted September 30, 2011, 5:06 a.m. EST
Occupy Wall Street has recently come into the media spotlight, not because of our political message, but because certain high-ranking members of the NYPD punched, threw, and stepped on peaceful marchers. Arrestees were handcuffed so tight their hands turned blue. Many of these people have yet to regain feeling in their extremities. A senior police officer infamously forced women into pens and maced them at point-blank range. While we vehemently condemn these abuses of power, we urge all who read this to remain focused on our intended message. Abuse of power is abuse of power. Whether perpetrated by Wall Street bankers or members of the NYPD, it is the duty of all citizens to oppose injustice. We condemn the actions of unprofessional police who used excessive force in subduing a peaceful march. But we are foremost here to oppose the growing power of the ruling class.
Let us also be clear that, when approached as individuals, members of the NYPD have expressed solidarity with our cause. It has been inspiring to receive this support. Over these thirteen days, we have learned that no one supports corporations’ disproportionate influence in the political sphere. We have learned that no one is in favor of evicting struggling families to the street while banks continue to profit. No one, that is, except the corporations and banks. We urge members of the NYPD to remain in solidarity with our cause. These… Continue reading

People power triumphs over Wall Street’s bid to end the protests mayor
bloomberg and Brookfield Inc. back down on eviction world prepares for day of
action Saturday October 15 in 950+ cities in 82 countries. We Are Winning!
NEW YORK, NY — Over 3,000 people gathered at Liberty Plaza in the pre-dawn
hours this morning to defend the peaceful Occupation near Wall Street. The crowd
cheered at the news that multinational real estate firm Brookfield Properties
will postpone its so-called “cleanup” of the park and that Mayor
Bloomberg has told the NYPD to stand down on orders to remove protesters. On
the eve of the October 15 global day of action against Wall Street greed, this
development has emboldened the movement and sent a clear message that the power
of the people has prevailed against Wall Street.
“We are winning and Wall Street is afraid,” said Kira Moyer-Sims,
a protester from Portland, Oregon. “This movement is gaining momentum
and is too big to fail.”
“Brookfield Properties is the 1%. They have invested $24 billion in mortgage-backed
securities, so as millions face foreclosure and eviction due to predatory lending
and the burst of the housing bubble that Wall Street created, its not surprising
they threatened to evict Occupy Wall Street,” said Patrick Burner, an
organizer with Occupy Wall Street from the Bed-Stuy neighborhood of Brooklyn.
“But Brookfield and Bloomberg have backed down and our movement is only
growing as the 99% take… Continue reading

The Daily Bell is pleased to present an exclusive interview with Mickey Huff (left).
Introduction: Mickey Huff is Associate Professor of History at Diablo Valley College and a Director of Project Censored and the Media Freedom Foundation. He has been interviewed by many radio stations and news sources throughout the country, including NPR, Air America, Pacifica, Republic Broadcasting, Progressive Radio Network, The Santa Rosa Press Democrat, New Standard News and others, and has been published on numerous media and news websites from Global Research, Buzzflash and Counterpunch to Z Mag, Truthout and even a few corporate media outlets(which he routinely critiques). He is co-author with Peter Phillips on a number of academic articles to be published throughout 2010-11 and co-edited two books with Phillips over the past three years. His latest work with Project Censored, the book Censored 2012: Sourcebook for the Media Revolution, is out now on Seven Stories Press. When he has time he blogs at http://dailycensored.com. Mickey is also a musician and composer of over 20 years and lives with his family just outside Berkeley, CA.
A brief synopsis:
Daily Bell: What’s your definition of censored? Is it mostly government censorship you’re after? Do you believe that private entities can “censor” or that the word strictly implies government activities?
Mickey Huff: Our definition of censorship is the subtle yet constant and sophisticated manipulation of reality in our mass media outlets. Basically, decisions as to what subjects are included in the corporate media (or any other media for that matter), or not included, is media censorship at work.…Continue reading

The Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act (Protect IP) and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) “are like two peas in a pod,” Sen. Ron Wyden, the bills’ most vocal opponent in the U.S. Senate, explained to Raw Story in an exclusive interview.
“These are Web blacklisting bills, Web censorship bills, and anybody with a Web site would be vulnerable,” he said, a tone of urgency prevailing in his voice.
“Had I not put a hold on it in May, it would have simply passed at that time,” Wyden continued. “I put a hold on the previous version back in December, and had I not put a public hold on it then, that version would have passed.”
Now, the Protect IP Act and SOPA are back, and this time seemingly with enough momentum to make it through Congress — but that could be changing.
The Business Software Alliance, a major industry advocacy group that once supported the bills, changed its mind just this week and is now working to oppose them.
Now companies like Apple, Microsoft and Intel are working to significantly alter the legislation, which critics say would fundamentally change the architecture of the Internet. Even Google and Facebook have come out against the bills, aruging that they simply go too far.
But they’re pitted against a collection of very powerful lobbies: the movie and music industries, along with other digital content providers like Sony and Nintendo.… Continue reading

We have been asked to post notice of the following petition, originally posted May 7, 2012, which has a goal of being delivered to the National Institute of Standards and Technology:
Wording of petition:
Why this is important
Building 7 of the World Trade Center, a 47 story building, contained offices of the CIA, the Secret Service, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) several financial institutions and then-Mayor Giuliani’s Office of Emergency Management.
Despite never being hit by an airplane, Building 7 was reduced to a pile of rubble in about 7 seconds at 5:20 p.m. on September 11, 2001. After 9/11 this fact has been widely covered up by the U.S. mass media and was even omitted from the 9/11 Commission Report.
NIST, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (a U.S. government agency) was authorized by Congress to determine “why and how WTC 7 collapsed.” NIST produced a preliminary draft of their final report in August, 2008 omitting the fact that Building 7 fell at free fall acceleration for part of its descent. After a physicist challenged NIST on this point the final report, in November 2008 admitted free fall acceleration for 105′ or 2.5 seconds.
NIST wrote, “A more detailed analysis of the descent of the north face found . . . (2) a freefall descent over approximately… Continue reading
In Mounting Evidence, Paul W. Rea, PhD, delivers an amply-researched critique of the 9/11 Commission and debunks the War on Terror. There’s little doubt the tragic attacks on 9/11 soon became the defining events of our time, shaping much of what has followed. But even now, over a decade later, how well does the public actually understand them? Other researchers have written about key facets of 9/11 — the fall of World Trade Center buildings, the air-defense failures, the backgrounds of the hijackers, or the role of the Saudi funders. In Mounting Evidence, Dr. Rea shows how, by understanding the shattering events of that dark day, Americans can end seemingly endless wars and take back personal liberties they’ve lost.
Dr. Rea feels so committed to bringing historical truth to the events of 9/11 that he has made his book, Mounting Evidence, available on Amazon.com.
Dr. Paul W. Rea has taught humanities at Ohio State University, the University of Northern Colorado and St. Mary’s College of California. Now a full-time researcher and writer, Dr. Rea focuses on political, peace and environmental issues.

BBC Action Reminder: Don’t Forget to Hold the BBC Accountable
Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth
We don’t want you to miss this rare opportunity to support a 9/11 Truth campaign in England with the British Broadcasting Corporation. The BBC Trust will make a decision any day now on whether to have a meeting with three AE911Truth petition signers who have filed a complaint over the BBC’s biased coverage of 9/11.
Dozens of you already sent in the pre-written letters to support this campaign. However, we’d like to reach at least 200 supporter letters. Will you help?
In the June 5 edition of The Blueprint (AE911Truth’s newsletter) there was an article called “ Hold the BBC Accountable ”.
We are asking you to send two emails (already written) to support a campaign to persuade the BBC to report accurately about 9/11 as their Charter and Editorial Values require. If you write your own letter, that’s even better.
Here are the main points of that article: – BBC is part of the worldwide media cover-up of 9/11. – BBC has a legal obligation to present accurate and impartial news. – Complaints and appeals are allowed and must be addressed according to a specified process. – BBC coverage of 9/11 has been very biased. – Three AE911Truth petition signers have filed a complaint and are asking for our help. – What can you do to support this campaign? Send two email messages, already written for you: one to the BBC Trust and… Continue reading

Support the 9/11 families and others who are asking President Obama to review the evidence in the documentary, 9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out
– Who: President Barak Obama
In a new documentary, 43 high-rise architects, structural engineers, metallurgists, scientists, physicists, and explosives experts provide compelling proof of explosive controlled demolition in the destruction of three World Trade Center (WTC) skyscrapers on September 11, 2001.
Their examination of scientific evidence suggests that the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC7 was not adequately explained by the 9/11 Commission, FEMA, and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) reports, all of which contain serious errors and omissions.
Why should this film matter to you, the reader, 11 years later? How will it help for President Obama to see this film?
9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out challenges the roots of the policies that gave rise to (1) the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which have already cost more than a million lives and $1.3 trillion and have substantially contributed to our financial crisis; and (2) legislation such as the Patriot Act and NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act], which has severely impacted our civil liberties.
9/11 family members Michele Little, Jane Pollicino, Bob McIlvaine, and Josef Princiotta sponsored this documentary, produced and directed by Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth. This nonprofit… Continue reading

Recently, I wrote a petition for people to sign called a “Statement For 9/11 Justice.” (Review and sign here.)
As of right now, there are 278 signatures. Not bad considering it was posted 5 days ago. Some of the people that have signed it that you may have heard of are 9/11 Family Member Lorie Van Auken, 9/11 Family Member Donna Marsh O’Connor, 9/11 First Responder Reggie Cervantes, 9/11 Whistleblowers Coleen Rowley and Sibel Edmonds, Cindy Sheehan, Ray McGovern, Dahlia Wasfi, John Judge, Daniel Sunjata, and journalists Pepe Escobar, William Rivers Pitt, and Jeremy R. Hammond.
A big thank you to them for lending their names to this statement.
The reason I wrote this statement was because I believe it is imperative that one like it exists. I believe we need to collectively put our feet down on this issue. Our media and our politicians will not tell the people the truth, so it is up to us to do so. The killing and the dying needs to stop, and the loss of our civil liberties needs to stop. The world needs to know there is no justification for any of it.
I am hoping this statement goes viral. I am hoping that millions sign it. Can you imagine how powerful a statement that would be? I am hoping that people still care enough to do so.
The Eighth Annual 9/11 Truth Film Festival will explore what featured speaker, professor, author, former diplomat, Peter Dale Scott has termed “deep events.” Scott defines “deep events” as those that are systematically ignored or falsified in the mainstream media and public consciousness. The Film Festival, will be held again at the historic Grand Lake Theater, 3200 Grand Ave, Oakland, on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 from 2 pm to 11 pm, and is a benefit for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance.
9/11 bears the fingerprints of an audacious false flag operation, but it also fits into a long historical pattern of events designed to provoke and alter public sentiment and behavior. A range of films and film excerpts, along with speakers, will analyze multiple events, including the Oakland bombing of activist Judi Bari, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the London bombings. Speakers will include Chris Emery film producer of A Noble Lie — Oklahoma City 1995; Professors Peter Phillips and Mickey Huff of Project Censored; Mark Gaffney, author of Black 9/11 Money, Motive, and Technology and The 9/11 Mystery Plane And the Vanishing of America. In addition to the films specifically about 9/11, including The Toronto Hearings on 9/11 – Uncovering Ten Years of Deception, the new one hour television version of 9/11: Explosive Evidence — Experts Speak Out, the documentary I am Fishead will premiere and cast some light on psychopaths, empathy, authority and the power of moral courage.… Continue reading
