AE911Truth Supporters Inform Occupy Movement
|Not all OWS events go as smoothly for 9/11 Truth supporters. What can we all learn from the experiences of the Wellington, NZ AE911Truth Action Group?|
Three of us visited the Occupy Wellington Occupy Wellington: workshops and presentations on Labour Day today to share the scientific evidence of 9/11 with the Occupy protestors and members of the general public. http://wellington.scoop.co.nz/?p=39583#more-39583
We arrived early at 10.00am hoping to get a time to make a presentation but unfortunately, we were advised by the organizers at the information tent that all of the time slots for the presentations had been booked and taken by other groups. We were given a space for a “workshop” later on in the morning and a space was provided for us away from the main area. We were also advised we could set up our banners in the lower civic square which was away from the main Occupy Wellington protest. We left DVDS and the ae911truth information flyers, the Whistleblower flyers and some 9/11 truth documentary combo DVDS (9/11 mysteries, Blueprint for Truth, Richard Gage Close Up) in the information tent. It was heartening to see that one of our group (thank you Sarah) had left information leaflets earlier on in the week which we saw displayed in the information library tent.
There weren’t very many people around at the time so we decided we would hold our own “Workshop” as we do on the street every 11th of the month talking to the public and giving away free information. We set up in the lower main civic square and were able to display our ae911truth banner and 911 +Lies = War Banner to great advantage. We had some long discussions today about 9/11 with other members of the occupy wellington group who were camped there and with members of the public.
Sadly, some of the Occupy Wellington people did not seem open to the information we were providing and one of the organizers thought our banner may offend and give out the wrong message to the members of the general public about the Occupy Wellington group. We had posted on the occupy wellington event site on face book earlier the consensus from the Occupy Wall Street group of the demand to re-investigate the attacks of 9/11 – see http://coupmedia.org/the-sovereig…ate-the-attacks-of-9-11-2001.html And Sarah had brought up the 9/11 subject earlier on in the week when she visited, so it was disappointing to see this attitude towards 9/11 truth prevailing
Some of the people I spoke to asked why can’t we just let it go?’ and I could see , that some although accepting that the official account of 9/11 may not be true, did not share the need for a new investigation and perhaps viewed it as a case closed. I find this mind set of other activists the hardest to deal with and I have to continually remind myself that although I can see the relevance of 9/11 truth to anti-war and anti-corporate activism and to the activists concentrating on these issues; it apparently is often not so obvious to them!
I just reiterated that despite the real problems we have with the monetary system and corporate corruption and everything else, we must continue to seek an investigation so that we can PROVE that 911 was a crime legally, and bring the perps to justice.
At 1.00 pm the main group convened to the green area outside civic square where the main camp was set up to talk about where the group should go to demonstrate – the talking microphone technique was used. I think using a talking microphone is an effective tool for large groups to hear speakers when the use of amplification has been banned. However, I do not feel comfortable with the group consensus techniques used today ie the waving of hands to signal agreement and thumbs out to signal disapproval – IMHO the dangers of “group-think” I feel is dangerous . We stayed up on the bridge displaying our 911 + Lies = war banner. A group of men took photos and gave us the thumbs up. I am sure it got many people gathered there thinking.
Unfortunately we had to leave before the demo march took place but we were able to leave the 911 banner with the organizers at the information tent who promised to display alongside the other posters on the civic square pyramid. I plan to revisit over the next few days and replenish the information and hope to talk to more of the occupy protestors about 9/11.
As I was leaving I was able to give Professor Paul Morris, Professor World’s Religions after 9/11 at Victoria University http://www.victoria.ac.nz/sacr/staff/paul-morris.aspx a DVD and flyer. I have written to him in the past before but have never had a response. He thanked me and appeared polite and said he would view the information.
It was great to meet with other activists and get to talk to Sue and Don from the newly created www.PositiveMoney.org. They are showing the film” the Wizard of Oz” in Wellington at the Paramount on November 17.
Occupy Ottawa - TUESDAY 10/25/11 UPDATE
AE911Truth Tent OK’d by General Assembly
Get an up close and personal experience of the democratic process used throughout the Occupy Movement in this audio recording as David Long from the Ottawa AE911Truth Action Group goes into high gear for 9/11 truth exposure at the “General Assembly” meeting at Occupy Ottawa. He respectfully requests the group’s acceptance of the AE911Truth tent placement in the encampment and receives the OK via group consensus.
|AE911Truth volunteer, Mike Bondi, delivers his pointed report on the Toronto Hearings at the Occupy Ottawa event. The AE911Truth tent attracted a lot of attention from the crowd|
|The Occupy Movement is committed to free speech and has been quite supportive of AE911Truth supporters|
David Long sums up his thoughts in this very short audio recording and stresses for all of us AE911Truth supporters at the Occupy events that we must be very respectful – given that our message is quite impactful and may be perceived by some, particularly with strong efforts such as displayed in Ottawa, as an effort to “take over” and can cause a backlash. However also remember that we are NOT outsiders. We are a part of the 99% and we have a right to be heard.
We have a very important role to play which is to contribute the truth about 9/11. There is no reason to be bashful about this. The Occupy movement has proven itself to be a strident supporter of free speech.

Occupy Oakland - SUNDAY 10/23/11 UPDATE
|Anyone can get the AE911Truth banner, the “street brochure”, and the t-shirts and bring the 9/11 WTC evidence to one of the Occupy events. On Saturday we handed out several hundred brochures to passersby at the Oakland, CA event.|
Volunteers from AE911Truth joined Richard Gage, AIA at the Occupy Oakland event on Saturday. We were once again very graciously received by most, as at the Occupy San Francisco event. In fact, Mr. Gage was invited to speak for a few minutes (as almost anyone can speak at these very democratically organized events – by just standing in the speaker’s line!) and almost half the crowd responded enthusiastically about WTC 7, the discoveries of nano-thermite in the WTC dust, the missing 100 floor, etc. We then immediately handed out numerous brochures to about half of those in crowd who looked eager to take them.
|Mr Gage used his limited time to address the Occupy Oakland audience by focusing on the bullet points of evidence found in the WTC Evidence Cards. Others might prefer to use Wayne Coste’s short Human Mic speech to put out the evidence in a short talk.|
|The 9/11 Investigator Newspaper proved to be one of the most popular give-aways in Oakland|
Occupy San Francisco - SATURDAY 10/22/11 UPDATE
At the “Occupy San Francisco” protest, AE911Truth was treated warmly by the local organizers, and generated a lot of positive attention from the 100 to 150 people in attendance.
Even though the protesters had a variety of political and social beliefs, many of them came over to take literature and offer support.
“We were excited how many demonstrators were so passionate about the 9/11 truth literature” said AE911Truth volunteer Tabitha S. “There seems to be a common thread among the gatherers to find truth and to demand accountability across numerous issues – that turn out to be intricately related. Many indicated also that they would be visiting AE911Truth.org website and that they would indeed sign the petition.” which 43 highly credentialed professionals – including high-rise architects, structural engineers, chemical engineers, metallurgists, physicists and explosives experts – make the case, hands down, for a new investigation of the total destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC 7.
OWS activists who wanted to learn more were referred to our new DVD “9/11: Explosive Evidence – Experts Speak Out", in which 43 highly credentialed professionals – including high-rise architects, structural engineers, chemical engineers, metallurgists, physicists and explosives experts – make the case, hands down, for a new investigation of the total destruction of the Twin Towers and WTC 7.
Occupy NIST, Boulder, CO - UPDATE
|Colorado911Visibility informs the public about the science behind 9/11 as they occupy NIST Laboratories in Boulder, CO . The National Institute of Standards and Technology authored the WTC 1,2, & 7 reports which most readers have determined to be a cover-up.|
Occupy Phoenix - SATURDAY 10/15/11 UPDATE
The Phoenix AE911Truth Action Group joined the Occupy Phoenix campaign kick off on October 15, 2011, “to lend the voice of the science and evidence of AE911Truth to the voice of the people”.
Pamela Senzee was invited to give a short talk as well – seen in this longer unedited Occupy Phoenix video clip.
Occupy Wall Street - SUNDAY 10/16/11 UPDATE
Congressional Outreach Team leader Wayne Coste also had an encouraging experience with OWS participants in Manhattan’s Zucotti Park:
“I arrived after dark, about 9:30 and I brought my laptop and other AE911Truth materials with me. I stood on one of the short walls near Broadway and held up the laptop that was showing my short loop for street fairs. This short loop has a number of video clips that are introduced by silent, text-only narratives. After standing there for a few minutes, I began to attract a number of watchers. Eventually it must have numbered about 50 or more altogether.
Once the questions started coming in, I was talking non-stop about 9/11 for about two hours. The main message that connected with them was about censorship. I explained that the silence about the explosive destruction of the three skyscrapers, and the silence about the call of 1,600 architects and engineers for a new investigation, was the irrefutable proof of the widespread media censorship.
I handed out a number of copies of the “human microphone” speech I created, and it was very popular. Several people said that they would bring it up at the OWS General Assembly the next morning.”
If you have the opportunity to make an announcement at the “Occupy” events, you can make use of the inventive “human microphone” technique and share Wayne Coste’s thought-provoking speech – or one of your own. Others around you will repeat each short phrase in the speech so that all participants can hear the vital information.
You don’t have to connect with the “Occupy” movement to have an effect in your area. You can simply choose to set up your own “occupation” – on a sidewalk, at the beach, at a flea market – anywhere that is legal. So go out there in your local area and let your voice be heard. With your help, the truth about 9/11 will occupy the minds of citizens everywhere!
