On Activism, Respect, and Provocateurs …
Open letter from the Steering Committee and Advisory Board of 911Truth.org
911Truth.org does not promote, condone, endorse, or otherwise advocate defacing or destroying private property … ever! We are receiving numerous complaints and legal threats in response to “alleged” 911truth.org activists stickering, and now spray painting, private property. In particular, we have just received a call from Michigan alerting us to the fact that someone spray-painted people’s homes with “911truth.org” last night. Whether the work of an overly zealous graffiti artist or, more likely, a provocateur’s concerted effort to discredit us, it is clearly unacceptable, illegal, and utterly disrespectful.
We are the “truth” movement. Certain responsibilities come with this title, and we appeal to our readers and activists everywhere to act respectfully and reasonably in our pursuit of justice. Recently, we posted “A Commitment to More Civil and Effective Collaboration in the 9/11 Truth Movement.” That same commitment to civility should clearly be extended to the people to whom we’re appealing, as well.
