Her work includes ensuring the safety of firefighters during structural fires.
She presents a sharp critique of the government’s account for the demise of
the three WTC Towers.
As part of his long and distinguished career, Bob Bowman ran for President
in 2000 and for the US Congress in 2006. Bob Scheer of the LA Times called him
“probably the best public speaker in the country today.” Dr. Bowman
will give new voice to several of his recurrent themes–no more imperial presidency,
no more undeclared corporate wars, no more spying on the American people, no
more repression of dissidents, no more exporting of jobs, no more government
lies, false-flag attacks, and cover-ups.
Two-term Senator from Alaska Mike Gravel first gained national attention when
he read the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record. For the last two
decades, he has worked to establish a National Initiative process to empower

Let us remember Janette and think of her especially on her birthday, which is on Saturday, February 26th, by synchronicity a day in 2011 which might go down in history as “the day Americans woke up,” following the example of numerous other countries, rallies and demonstrations have been called for throughout the US to challenge the policies which enrich the few and impoverish the many. We will gather together the following day, on Sunday, February 27, 2011 to celebrate Janette’s life– some of us in New York, and some in California–to share mementos, memories, food, drink, and stories about our dear friend, her life, her wake up call, which merits our attention, love, and appreciation.
The Celebrations will be webcast on Sunday-
We will start off the Celebration at 12:00 Noon PST (3:00pm EST) with a Skype call with James Lecce. This will be between him and the California crowd (If Ed has a second computer, NY may be able to see it) and will only last a few minutes. Then we will interact with NY for about 1.5 – 2 hours. Then we will continue to broadcast our respective local events.
IMPORTANT: When starting the Ustream Broadcast, also hit the Record button. If you do not do this, there will be no video archive available later.

Dear Friends and Fellow Advocates for Answers and Accountability,
As we look ahead to 2010, we at NYC CAN would like to offer our deepest thanks to everyone who contributed to a remarkable and historic campaign, and we would like to take a moment to celebrate the achievements that give us much to build upon in 2010.
2009 was a year of tremendous progress for our cause. Among a long list of successes, a peer-reviewed paper was published in a mainstream scientific journal documenting the discovery of active thermitic material in the World Trade Center dust; the petition of architects and engineers calling for a new investigation into the WTC destruction has leaped to nearly 1,000 signatories while founding member Richard Gage, AIA travels the world delivering his analysis of the buildings’ demise to thousands of concerned citizens and leaders. The increasing strength and credibility of our message is evidenced by the ever greater frequency of media breakthroughs casting a positive light on the questions we pose.
Thanks to your support, NYC CAN is proud to consider the ballot initiative campaign in New York among the many victories that furthered our cause in 2009. 80,000 New Yorkers — nearly 8% of the number who voted in the 2009 mayoral election in America’s largest city — signed a petition calling for a new 9/11 investigation. Just last week we learned one of those 80,000 signatories is a councilmember elect, intent upon helping us advance our cause with the… Continue reading

The Hard Evidence Down Under 2009 Tour has nearly wrapped up, following events
in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, Australia and in Wellington, New Zealand. Every one of these events met with overwhelming success.
John Bursill, Principle Organizer of the tour, and his ‘backup crew’ made up
of scores of dedicated, generous, passionate volunteers planned and executed
a very significant series of events that resulted in the presentation of 9/11
truth information, in person, to approximately 1,200 people and along the way,
radio interviews and news stories reached at least tens of thousands more. Kudos and much gratitude are in order to John, his wonderful, patient wife and family, to Helen
in New Zealand who coordinated the Wellington event, and the many volunteers who gave so much to make this important
tour happen. Of course, huge, sincere thanks are in order to the event sponsors
whose very generous financial contributions made possible travel from the United
States by presenters Richard Gage, AIA, founder of Architects
and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Professor Steven Jones, emeritus professor
of physics, founder of Scholars
for 9/11 Truth and Justice and co-editor of the Journal
of 9/11 Studies, Cosmos, founder of TruthAction.org
and the massive “Eleventh Day of Every Month Till Justice” campaign, Luke
Rudkowski, founder of WeAreChange
and Janice Matthews, Director of 911Truth.org
and small business owner, so that we could present in Sydney. In addition, Ken Jenkins
and hummux, of 911TV.org,
were brought from the U.S.…

Wednesday Evening, 9/9/2009, we will be holding the World Premiere of
Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup

The US’s political discourse and foreign policy in recent years has been based on the assumption that Osama bin Laden is still alive. George W. Bush promised as president that he would get Osama bin Laden “dead or alive” and has been widely criticized for failing to do so. The US’s present military escalation in Afghanistan is said to be necessary to “get Osama bin Laden.” The news media regularly announce the appearance of new “messages from bin Laden.” But what if Osama bin Laden died in December 2001–which is the last time a message to or from him was intercepted?
In this book, David Ray Griffin examines the evidence for the claim–made by everyone from former CIA agent Robert Baer to Oliver North–that bin Laden is surely no longer with us. He analyzes the purported messages from bin Laden and finds that, as many have suspected, they do not provide evidence of bin Laden’s existence after 2001. This leads naturally to the question: if Osama bin Laden did indeed die in 2001, how and why have dozens of “messages from bin Laden” appeared since then?
Griffin’s meticulous analysis supports above all one simple and urgent conclusion: if Osama bin Laden is dead, the US should not be using its troops and treasure to hunt him down.
David Ray Griffin has published 35 books on philosophy, religion, and politics. His most recent book, The New Pearl Harbor Revisited, was a Publishers Weekly “Pick of the Week” in 2008. His… Continue reading
Professor David Ray Griffin, renowned author of a series of eye-opening books that recount his painstaking research into the attacks of September 11, 2001, begins his new European tour in London on 14th April. Stressing the fact that the time has come for a second look at the events of that fateful day, the tour will include stops in Paris, Brussels and Madrid, and several other cities.
Professor Griffin’s talks will afford the public an excellent opportunity to learn more about the fundamental questions surrounding 9/11. The 9/11 Truth Movement, which started out as a disparate, grass-roots undertaking, has blossomed into a serious community that now includes many specialized branches, such as Pilots for 9/11 Truth, Firefighters for 9/11 Truth, Lawyers for 9/11 Truth, Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, Medical Professionals for 9/11 Truth, Political Leaders for 9/11 Truth, Religious Leaders for 9/11 Truth, Veterans for 9/11 Truth, and Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice (a group which includes a significant number of prominent scientists). Many former intelligence officers also support the movement and have contributed to the ever-growing list of evidence that proves far beyond a reasonable doubt that the explanations provided by the Bush-Cheney administration are quite simply false.
As Professor Griffin states, “The mainstream media are reluctant to discuss the subject and politicians are loath to delve into disturbing facts that ultimately indicate that America has gone to war on false pretences.” Griffin says abundant evidence now exists that proves the Bush-Cheney administration broke… Continue reading

Sadot reporting on No Lies Radio in the foreground
A number of 9/11 Truth activists converged from San Jose, Los Gatos, the East
Bay, the Peninsula, San Francisco to make a sizable contingent with multiple
banners and many, many signs at rally at Justin Herman Plaza and in the march.
After much police harassment at the Civic Center for attempting to attach our
large banners to trees, we broke down and bought a decent awning, so that we
could legally put up our banners, and fend off the rain. The weather report
was not promising, nor the looming clouds when I left Palo Alto at 8 am heading
north. It is hard, if not impossible to pass out flyers, and not ruin our sound
system, books, and educational materials when it is raining, and the turnout
at rallies and marches is certainly smaller when the weather is bad.
The favorite spot of the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance at the Civic
Center is away from the stage facing south, outside of the trees, where we generally
have hoisted a giant banner of the Deception Dollar. Often the center of the
Civic Center is full and the traffic is better on the outside. When we arrived
at the Civic Center- all of the awnings had been set up on the inside of the
trees… Continue reading

Apocalypse (Greek: Apokálypsis; “lifting of the veil”) is a term applied to the disclosure to certain privileged persons of something hidden from the majority of humankind. Today the term is often used to refer to the end of the world, which may be a shortening of the phrase apokalupsis eschaton, which literally means “revelation at the end of the æon, or age.1

Listen 10 pm (CST) to Questioning
War-Organizing Resistance on WeThePeopleRadioNetwork.com,
in the first hour to our guests – Michael Pengue and Kenneth Fernandez,
and at 11 pm (CST) in the second hour to our guests – Robert Lewis
and Drew Noftle.
Michael Pengue is the producer of the online film Montreal,
Next Terror Target?, he is also a co-founder of the Montreal 9/11 Truth
group- mtl911truth.org. He is a native
of Montreal, first generation Canadian of Italian born parents.
Two years after the events of 9/11, his friend, Kenneth Fernandez, expressed a very strong suspicion that 9/11 was an inside-job. From 2003 he read books and articles by Michael Ruppert, David Griffin, Daniel Hopsicker, Sander Hicks, Michel Chossudovsky and watched countless documentaries. In 2004, he joined the Canadian Action Party and shortly after became a member of their executive team (until early 2008 when I resigned as vice-president only to continue as a member and supporter of CAP). At the International Citizens’ Inquiry into 9/11 in Toronto, he met Ruppert and others and that drove him to be more active. Just a few weeks later his picture made it in the Montreal Gazette standing in front of the Montreal’s Imperial Theatre for the premiere of Michael Moore’s film ”Fahrenheit 9/11”carrying a sandwich-board reading ” 9/11 Was an Inside Job” and on the flip side “Fahrenheit 911 is Just… Continue reading
This story has now been updated with new information from Symposium organizers.
The New England 9/11 Symposium, held this past Saturday (5/17/08) in Keene, NH, was a tremendous success. We had a great turn out and received local and, of course, independent media coverage.
First, the morning began at 9:45 a.m. with Bob McIlvaine’s heartfelt speech, which is a reminder that, as Jon Gold put it, what we feel is nothing compared to what family members like McIlvaine feel. The part of his remarks that stuck out to me the most was when McIlvaine detailed his experiences researching 9/11 on his own and described his utter disgust with the 9/11 Commission. While speaking about the Commission he mentioned the day that Condoleeza Rice testified about the August 6th, 2001 PDB. To him it was obvious that Rice was spinning, lying, and not directly answering any questions posed to her by the Commissioners, who’s questions were light as it was. He talked of how outraged he was when, after Rice testified, family members were rushing to shake her hand. The deception was so blatant how could the others not see it? I, as well as many others, believe that Bob is very strong and very brave.
Next up was acclaimed Canadian media critic and author, Barrie Zwicker. Zwicker offered his excellent take on the media’s unwillingness to cover this issue. I had seen his presentation before in 2006 but it was watching Zwicker take the editor of The Keene Sentinel (a… Continue reading

What is this symposium about?
Hundreds of credible, credentialed scientists, architects, engineers, scholars, and former military and government officials are now on record criticizing the official 9/11 report, asking for answers to many troubling questions, and urging a new, independent investigation. (See PatriotsQuestion911.org). The mainstream media have consistently ignored this criticism, even though recent Zogby International polls have shown that a majority of the public is not satisfied with the 9/11 Commission’s report.
Even the Chair and Vice Chair of the 9/11 Commission, Thomas Kean and Lee Hamilton, in a… Continue reading
