A shame this was published after the meeting in France. This is a must read.

Quote:
October 16, 2009

In the fall of 2008, the NYC 9/11 Ballot Initiative realized that both strategy and tone were moving its effort no closer to broadening its support. Facing a wary, apathetic public and a stalled momentum, leadership was replaced, strategy was revamped and its mission rebranded.

Launched in early 2009 as NYC CAN, the new organization proceeded to effectively engage voters in a rational dialogue concerning the unanswered questions surrounding 9/11 and the best interests of our country. Our vehicle for engagement was a public referendum to create a real, independent, evidence-driven investigation into those questions that remain, eight years later, unaddressed.

That revamped strategy – focused and methodical, free of divisive rhetoric, ill-advised conjecture and alienating political judgments – succeeded in garnering the support of 80,000 NYC voters, over one-hundred 9/11 family members, dozens of first responders and survivors and leading 9/11 family advocates including ‘Jersey Girls’ Lorie Van Auken, Mindy Kleinberg and Patty Casazza as well as Bill Doyle, Monica Gabrielle and others.

NYC CAN also received backing from the most trusted leaders in the 9/11 truth movement, including David Ray Griffin, Richard Gage, Kevin Ryan, Steven Jones and Niels Harrit; and the endorsement of respected whistleblowers Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer and FBI Special Agent Coleen Rowley, TIME’s 2002 Person of the Year.

Universally positive coverage on a cross-section of media platforms including the Baltimore Chronicle, the Newark Star-Ledger, the Villager, and even the New York Post; online outlets like the Examiner and Raw Story; and on-air interviews with France 24, Russia Today, Talk Radio Europe, NPR and Air America all brought our case directly to the voting public.

In unprecedented fashion, the community dedicated to the pursuit of answers demonstrated its dedication to what works by funding what works. Their financial assistance came not through a handful of large donations but in the form of thousands of smaller, affordable donations from across this country and around the world. This outpouring of generosity paved the way to where we stand today and we thank you all.

NYC CAN’s campaign was carefully orchestrated to engage voter support by presenting incontrovertible discrepancies to combat skepticism and create reasonable doubt. We countered objection with fact instead of theory, allowing individual deductive reasoning to poke its own holes in the 9/11 Commission’s story. By doing so we persuaded 80,000 New York City voters to listen, think and act.

Therein lies the template for success in reaching our universal goal.

Lessons Learned

That success, however, will not manifest itself as the referendum we envisioned on the ballot in NYC on November 3rd. In the process of our petition drive and court challenges, we learned the hard way that public referendums are not the vehicle by which to navigate the byzantine rules that govern the corrupt landscape of New York politics.

Midway through our petition drive we, along with our fellow New Yorkers, who twice voted to limit city officials to two terms, watched in disbelief as our own elected representatives, those to whom these term limits would apply, overturned the will of the people in a naked grasp for power.

Emboldened by this successful slap down of democracy, the City of New York and the State Supreme Court denied the will of 80,000 voters to place NYC CAN’s referendum on November’s ballot. In doing so, the City’s Corporation Counsel – while forced to acknowledge in open court that no investigation into 9/11 of any kind, criminal or otherwise, had ever been conducted by the City of New York – labeled the will of the people “irrelevant”.

A lone Supreme Court Justice, while demonstrating no comprehension or interest in the fundamental aspects of the events of 9/11 or the basis of our case – not to mention justice or truth – sided with the will of the City over the will of the people whose interests he is sworn to protect.

While the petition had its flaws, it was secure enough to be implemented if the City and the Supreme Court were so inclined. It took the petition and legal processes to realize that the current City administration will stop at nothing to keep 9/11 in the rear view mirror. Our best and current expert legal advice indicates that no petition of this kind, however framed, can ever be assured success in New York City. Hence, no more time, energy, or money will be spent on this court action or a new petition effort.

Those who wield political power will be swayed neither by rational dialogue nor the best interests of those they are meant to serve, as their motivation to act is based upon that which it always has – an insulating propagation of self-interest. Only by winning the hearts and minds of the people will our voice be heard in the halls of power that govern this country. Only when that voice echoes our message will it reverberate through those halls too loudly to be ignored. Only when the people wield the threat of their vote will those in power be forced to act.

It is to the people we must make our appeal. Only then will we succeed.

Lessons learned?

With the experience gained in persuading 80,000 NYC voters to act, the strategy that will work has become ever more clear: a national public relations campaign to persuade the American public to rethink the bill of goods they were sold and now accept as bible truth. Public relations is a time-tested strategy that has been embraced across the board and through the ages; this proven methodology has been utilized to the advantage of the most progressive elements of society and embedded in the core strategy of every corporation in America. Why?

Because it works.

There is one question we must ask ourselves at this turning point for a movement unquestionably marginalized and discredited, surely by outside forces opposed to any further investigation, but also by its own hesitance to honestly assess what is not working and alter its course. This issue, like the questions to which we all seek answers, remains unaddressed but can no longer be ignored.

What holds our movement back from embracing what works?

Certainly those who give of their time, their talents and their energy to further this pursuit of answers do so with the very best intentions. Best intentions, in light of the progress we clearly have not made, are no longer good enough. Individual agendas, splintered strategies, unfocused action and information overload all play into our detractors’ hands and contribute to the lack of direction that leaves our movement marginalized, our voice muted and our goals unmet.

Our hearts are in the right place; when our message and delivery is, we will capture the hearts and minds of America. We will never silence those who would silence us; we can, however, drown those voices in public outcry if we commit to a voice that America will not only listen to but also hear.

A Multi-Tiered Strategy

The secret to success for nonprofits and social activists lay in the ability to employ the business marketing tools that have proven effective in promoting social agenda and persuading the general public, without whose support such efforts rarely succeed.

Perhaps it is time to acknowledge (and abandon) methodologies that keep our movement marginalized – radical rhetoric, vitriolic accusation and wild conjecture wrapped in off-putting self-righteousness – and embrace a strategy that changes not what we say but how we say it in order to be heard.

The science of public relations – the subtle art of persuasion – is a discipline that must be adopted by our movement. Those who effectively employ public relations to their benefit understand that a bat to the head is never an effective course of action in attaining desired results.

As with any marketing or sales effort or any successful social movement, one must engender trust before one seeks to close the sale. The problem inherent in our movement and its passionate base is the desire to close the sale without making the sale. We need to take a step back, recalibrate, redefine and reeducate. We need to employ persuasion, not pressure, with the right strategy and the right voice.

And who decides whose voice that is?

Reason must decide. The litmus test is simple. Who do the American people trust? Their elected officials? Not since Watergate. Celebrities? Celebrities certainly matter insomuch as they can draw attention to a cause and to its informed and authoritative spokespeople, but they are rarely seen or respected as such by the general public.

So who engenders both the respect and the trust required to begin to awaken an apathetic American public? Oddly enough, that voice comes from high within the very government seen by some to be the major roadblock to attaining our goals, or worse, as the main perpetrator of the 9/11 attacks. Such theorizing is destructive to any effective press for truth and should find no home here. Evidence matters. Facts matter. Image matters. Theories don’t.

This movement doesn’t need a strategy to win your support; you don’t need persuading – you are the movement. We need a voice to engage those without whose support we cannot succeed.

It’s all about perception.

Men and women of unassailable integrity – military commanders, CIA, FBI and military intelligence agents, aviation experts and senior-level administration officials – have already spoken out, putting name and reputations on the line. Men and women with a deep and pervasive understanding of how the United States government works and whose service to our country place them in a position above reproach. Men and women who can create reasonable doubt in the mind of the American public and steer attention to the authoritative voices that can cement that doubt.

These men and women, viewed by the American public as real American heroes, offer the promise of revitalizing our movement and engaging the general public on a level that today lies beyond our reach. Our movement may not perceive generals and CIA agents as the obvious choice, but must understand we could not ask for more effective spokespersons to engage the American public.

Again, we are not talking about the generals currently waging wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are talking about those who have already spoken out and lent their good name and stellar reputations to this cause.

Despite the presence of such credible voices, our movement has been unable to create a vehicle with which to launch a strategic nationwide campaign that can wrestle momentum from the hands of those who seek to bury the truth and place it in the hands of those who would expose it to the light of day.

Until now.

Public Relations

There are two available options to engage the general public – advertising and public relations. Advertising space and time in the mass media is extremely expensive and often negatively viewed by the public as an attempt to manipulate. Conversely, public relations carries no cost for coverage and its efforts to humanize an issue and create goodwill in order to gain public support are generally viewed as balanced and believable. In a perfectly funded world both methodologies would be utilized. As nonprofits and social activists rarely enjoy that option, fiscal realities dictate viable action – a public relations campaign.

While effective public relations can be costly, the net benefit in shaping one’s image, promoting one’s cause and garnering the requisite support make it a worthy investment. The right PR firm not only partners in shaping strategy and message to convey the desired image, but also maintains the media contacts to bring that message directly to the public.

The most daunting challenge PR firms face in effectively conveying an image with which the public will identify lies in identifying trusted spokespersons that can articulate message in a manner that engenders their support. Those individuals have already been identified. All that remains is the crafting of the message and the vehicle for the right spokespeople to drive that message home.

Message massage is of paramount importance with any polarizing issue; what you say and how you say it take on an equal importance. While there are those who can follow the existing trail of evidence down the rabbit hole, our target demographic – a preoccupied American public – cannot. Our message must be re-calibrated to begin at the start with the most fundamental discrepancies and omissions in the 9/11 Commission Report in order to begin to chip away at the stone.

The general public’s attention span is short and their grasp of these issues is tenuous at best. Our message must harness and repeat the core concepts undeniable by the most hardened skeptics and that message must be repeated again and again before the onion can be peeled.

We must also bear in mind that while 9/11 changed our world overnight, it will take us considerably longer to change the public’s perception and understanding of the issues at hand. One effective piece in the New York Times or the Chicago Tribune or one interview with Katie Couric or Anderson Cooper, or any one placement in any new media, will not accomplish our goal. Our goal is now multimedia saturation – a consistent stream of stories through a cross-section of print media, regional, network and cable news outlets and their Internet counterparts.

In addition to saturating all media outlets at our disposal, we must provide tangible platforms our spokespersons can use to drive a renewed public interest into action.

Strategic Political Engagement

NYC CAN was the movement’s first step into the arena of electoral politics. The 9/11 referendum afforded NYC CAN a platform to engage hundreds of thousands of voters in a carefully orchestrated dialogue to reshape the public’s attitude toward its government’s actions as they relate to 9/11. Regardless of the referendum’s outcome, the campaign was a success in heightening public awareness of the need to demand answers to the questions our government continues to ignore. As awareness grows, so grows the peril to the elected representatives that refuse to act.

And that is exactly the point.

New York City is only one among countless opportunities to skin the cat. There are 9/11 advocates all across the country, many of which are presently engaged in civic action. While we encourage all groups to continue or begin to act, we would hope that all see the power and importance of those actions when taken under the umbrella of one common strategy, harnessing the strength of a unified, professionally crafted message.

Ballot initiatives, whether meant to enact legislation or to express the will of the people in a non-binding resolution, carry weight both as voter actions unto themselves and as platforms for civic engagement as part of the overall campaign. Their eventual outcome may in fact be of less importance than the civic engagement they engender.

We must also engage in efforts to pass local resolutions calling for further investigation into 9/11 as such efforts also raise the public profile of our mission. We must use that strategy to continue to lobby top officials and district attorneys. In states and cities where ballot initiatives are not accepted, as well as in states and cities where they are, our strategy can lay the groundwork that opens the door to running and supporting candidates on a platform of 9/11 accountability.

Keep in mind that which bears repeating; the outcome of these efforts may prove less important than the civic engagement these campaigns will engender. Much like public relations, saturation is the name of the game. Without tangible vehicles that enable civic engagement, our efforts to reshape the public’s perception will be for naught.

An Untangled Web

The concept and execution of our strategy presents both challenge and opportunity to the movement. As if through the looking glass in a world where bad is good and up becomes down, being too well versed in the intricacies of 9/11 can become a handicap once we acknowledge that our target demographic simply is not.

The average American’s general perception of September 11th can be summed up in five short words: two planes and two towers. It is up to us to reshape that perception using evidence in a manner that will lead to the requisite reasonable doubt of the story the public has come to accept.

There is certainly no lack of credible, well-documented research covering a myriad of 9/11 topics splashed across the Internet on countless websites.

Therein lies the problem.

Too much information, too many details and too many story lines muddy the waters for those too confused to digest the overload of information. In addition, rampant rhetoric and conjecture (for which there is no place) leave our target demographic wary and unconvinced, making it that much easier for our detractors to continue to marginalize our movement.

It’s all about how we bait the hook.

A haphazard dissemination of everything under the 9/11 sun, from credible evidence to amateur analysis, and from half-baked theory to full-blown truth, is not the way to convert the pervasive skepticism we face today. When we learn to control the content, flow and presentation of information in a more simplified and direct fashion we will control its effect.

What is missing is one carefully vetted, content-controlled web presence – a virtual ‘Citizens’ Commission’ containing a professionally designed interactive catalogue of the most legally sound evidence and a video portal for expert testimony to be used in an eventual investigation or court action. Laid out in easy-to-navigate chapter and verse, casual inquiry moves efficiently from the center of the story outward. If executed properly, casual inquiry will work its way to responsible, civic-minded action. But we must begin with the basics.

Every successful salesman understands the value of well-crafted collateral sales material. There is no end to what a true 9/11 homepage, a disciplined 9/11 primer, can become and no limit to its value in reaching our goal.

But we must begin at the start, always mindful that in order to close the sale we have to make the sale.

Our 9/11 Wake Up Call
We are at war against a government that has used the events of 9/11 to hijack a country from her people and placed the interests of the rich and the powerful above justice and truth. Wars can only be won through strategy, commitment and discipline.

Present strategy has moved us no closer to our goal; in fact, some of the actions this movement has embraced hold us back from gaining any real momentum, working to the benefit of the very people who stand in opposition to the truth. Our detractors love those who will carry their water, whether consciously or not, doing real damage to any chance of success.

We know many of you, like us, see our marginalized movement’s stalled momentum as a call to effective action – a call to take the fight to our detractors by using the very tools they employ to promote their own agenda. We must use these same time-tested tools to elevate our own search for answers with a campaign directed at the hearts and minds of the American people:




a professional rollout of a national public relations campaign and trusted spokespeople to reshape image and regain momentum in order to broaden our reach

a uniform and coordinated methodology for regional action feeding off and feeding into that campaign nationwide

a disciplined Internet presence structured in content and tone to reshape public perception and create reasonable doubt


Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. As we see ourselves in no position to argue, we would urge all who share our simple goal – truthful answers to reasonable questions – to abandon those methodologies which have proven, over and over again, not to work and come together in support of the time-tested strategies that will.

Let us move closer to our goals by accepting that the only effective path to success is through a course of action that engenders the support of the American public. We are committed only to the strategies that have stood the test of time. We urge the leaders of every like-minded organization to unite in a call for answers that is sure to be heard when we raise our voice as one.

The old proverb about dont have all your eggs in one basket comes to mind.

One of the strengths of the movement is its internet base which at present is reasonably uncontrolled by MSM channels. The movement will keep growing at grass roots level through the net and also through activism at all levels. NYCCAN ballot initiative was a localised response to worldwide movement.

What would happen if say 75% of the worlds population realised the truth about 9/11? Lets narrow it down to say 75% of US citizens-- would you then not get a single issue political party arriving on the scene? Is there a critical mass when things change? Weve seen it to some extent in the UK with the appearance of political parties striving to keep the pound and get out of the European Union and to some extent with the BNP which is attracting voters because of the perceptions concerning the way the face of Britain is changing due to immigration and the cultural diversity.

As a Christian i regularly pray for key whistleblowers to surface or leak more evidence also for Obamas wife to find the truth and nag her husband (if he hasnt already sold his soul to the elite) We need more scientific research like the dust analysis. The steel "cross" that was found in the rubble apparently has some metal welded to it-- how was this possible?

What other methods do people who feel powerless resort to-- civil unrest -- but is this justified, is it counter productive?.

Will it take 50 years for the truth to be readily accepted, by which time most of the perps will be rotting in hell.

"We shall overcome, We shall overcome, We shall overcome--some day"

Just like the JFK assassination and still nobody does anything? Not criticising, just a comment.

Quote:
So here we are in year zero plus eight, and time keeps slipping into yesterday. What shape are we in? Where have we gotten? What, if anything, is our goal? How are we going to agree on a goal, and who will carry it out, and through what means will it be accomplished? It's really incredible, if you think about it. In fact, the more you think about it, the more incredible it becomes: despite all of our progress, the world is still operating under the same demonstrably false paradigm.

Unfortunately, human beings are spectacularly adaptable to a fault. We adjust to new macro-level realities before we have a chance to decide whether we should. The millions of people across the country who know and/or believe that the events of Tuesday morning, September the eleventh, two thousand-and-one could only have been planned and executed by some internal American element are no exception; we, too, have adjusted to the new reality. Granted, we're all doing our best to resist and to sound the alarm that, no, this new reality isn't real, and everything which has since occured in the name of responding to the event and/or protecting against future attacks is based upon a deliberately false premise. But 9-11 truth isn't picking up seem, it's losing the race against time - and losing badly.

In 2006 I was fortunate enough to have worked as the assistant field director for the United States Congressional campaign of Lt. Colonel Robert Bowman, in the Flolrida fifteenth. With barely more than a hundred thousand dollars, Dr. Bowman still managed to get over 43% of the vote in a heavily Republican district. To his credit, Dr. Bowman hasn't given up the fight; he travels around the country and speaks to group after group. But wouldn't it be nice if Bowman's relentless good work, and that of many others, were part of a coordinated effort - a plan of action?

Herein lies the problem: a coordinated effort is wholly antithetical to what 911 truth is all about. Coordinated efforts lead to hierarchical structures of command and control, providing for the perfect target of corruption and infiltration. And who among us are willing to become subservient to a leader, or group of leaders, in furtherance of this noble agenda? Certainly not I. Still, everything has a flip side, and the obvious drawback is that nothing is getting done precisely because there is no coordinated effort. Individuals are doing terrific work on many levels but, as a whole, we still haven't gotten our * together. No-one and everyone is to blame.

So where do we go from here? There must be a better way. Here in DC, there is a 911-truth group but, I am sorry to say, it doesn't do much of anything. Granted, two of the main participants have gotten a newspaper off the ground called the Rock Creek Free Press which can be found all over town and which is doing terrific work disseminating critical information about September the eleventh, and related materials. But the group, itself, doesn't really do a whole lot: meetings happen only twice a month, one of which is normally devoted to preparing the paper for monthly circulation. Rarely if ever do we discuss larger themes of where are we going, and what are we doing, and what happens next. Sure, we march in local parades, and hand out fliers, and set up booths on the national mall from time to time. But this is Washington, DC, the belly of the beast, the seat of power [like it or not] and one of two journalistic hubs, and we aren't doing anything here which couldn't also be done in any town, in any state. I ran into the same problem on the Bowman campaign, where one of my jobs was to coordinate the activities of volunteers. Some people wanted to do this, and some people wanted to that. Some wanted to stuff envelopes, and nothing more. Some were only comfortable knocking on doors. One way of looking at this state of affairs is with forgiveness: if people are volunteering their time, why not just let them do what they feel most comfortable doing? It's better than not having them on the board at all. Still, another perspective is that volunteers have signed up for a cause, and it's better for the cause if they could do what's needed, instead of merely what they want. At the end of the day, the cause will either succeed or fail, and people should, perhaps, be more concerned about achieving success and avoiding failure than with their own catharsis. Maybe the truth lies somewhere in-between.

My purpose is not to disparage anyone, or any group, but I know that it will be taken that way by some, both here and elsewhere. I can't help that. But isn't it about time that we take a critical look at ourselves, and our efforts? We certainly haven't done everything right. Maybe it's time to turn the page and figure out what needs to change. The questions of who will do the changing, and where it will take place, and when, and how, are critical yet secondary: the first question is whether or not a new direction is needed. From my perspective, the answer is flagrantly self-evident, but there are other voices which need to be heard.

Latest NYCCAN news:

November 3, 2009

Dear Friends,

Today the people of New York City go to the polls to vote yes or no to a billionaire mayor who overturned the will of the people to allow himself to run for a third term and then spent $100 million to retain his throne. While this enemy of democracy sits happily on that throne and on today’s ballot, not one vote will be cast to answer the question 80,000 New York City voters agreed must be asked: whether to establish an independent commission to investigate the events of September 11, 2001.

We all know the federal government never conducted a real 9/11 investigation. Less talked about but recently admitted in open court by the City of New York: it too has never conducted any investigation of any kind into 9/11, an event that took the lives of 1,127 of its own residents. The will of the people to finally have this investigation? “Irrelevant” according to Mike Bloomberg’s Corporation Counsel.

Not irrelevant.

With the voice of 80,000 New Yorkers and you behind us, NYC CAN will bring the pursuit of honest answers to reasonable questions to the hearts and minds of the American people in 2010. Let this dark day for democracy mark the beginning of an era when the voice of common sense echoes from every corner of this country becoming too loud to be dismissed as irrelevant.

As we stand at this turning point, about to embark upon the next phase of our journey, we thank you for getting us to where we stand today, and we count on you to stand together with us as we continue our pursuit.

Sincerely,

Ted Walter

NYCCAN latest news:

"That's not how a building would fall if it was attacked."

Walter Peterson, Former Governor of New Hampshire


Fellow Advocates,

Thank you to everyone who participated in the last campaign!

For two weeks we had 50+ people sending emails and faxes to five City Council Members each day. Thanks to the hard work and commitment of those people, the entire City Council has been informed that – according to a reporter at the scene whose article was attempting to dismiss suspicions that Building 7 was demolished – the proposed demolition of Building 7 was widely known about at the scene, and, specifically, Larry Silverstein was allegedly advocating for it. By mounting this second campaign, not only did we inform the City Council of this important revelation, we sent a strong message that the first campaign was not our last campaign, and we’re not going away until the City Council fulfills its responsibility to investigate the destruction of Building 7.
We have a handful of recent news items and upcoming efforts to tell you about:

Action Items – Your Help is Needed

1) NYC: A Coalition for Accountability Waiting to Happen

2) June 2010 Channel Your Voice – Let’s Make Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. the Next Jim Garrison!

News Items
3) AE911Truth article reports on NYC CAN-AE911Truth joint effort to make the City Council investigate Building 7

4) David Ray Griffin publishes Building What? article and proposes year-long, movement-wide Building What? campaign

5) Former New Hampshire Governor Walter Peterson supports call for new investigation


ACTION ITEM #1


Right now NYC CAN has a statement of support signed by one-hundred 9/11 family members, 25 first responders and 25 survivors (please go to the website to read it!). We have an ambitious goal of reaching 500 family members, 100 first responders and 100 survivors by September 11, 2010.

This project is not merely symbolic. Specifically, as we gain more and more signatories, we will mobilize them to contact key City Council members in a coordinated manner. As our voice grows more powerful it will become increasingly difficult for the City Council to ignore our call for a new investigation into the desturction of Building 7.

We need your help right now.

If you are one of our signatories, and you know one or more of your family members, relatives, fellow first responders, or fellow survivors would be interested in signing the statement of support, please invite them to sign by sending them a link to the sign-on page: http://nyccan.org/signon-support.php.

If you are not sure how your friends and family would feel about it, but you feel comfortable asking them to take a look at the material, we encourage you to send them a link to NYC CAN’s homepage – http://nyccan.org – and ask them to consider lending their voice to this effort.

We understand the great complexity of discussing this issue with family and friends and asking them to become active. We realize for many it’s just not possible. We ask you to consider reaching out to your family and friends only if you know they would want to add their voice, or if you feel this is the right opportunity to educate them.

If you are not a signatory, but you know family members, first responders or survivors who would want to sign, please scan the list of signatories to see if they are on it. If they are not, please invite them to sign by sending them a link to the sign-on page: http://nyccan.org/signon-support.php.

If you know just one person who might want to sign, please take five minutes to email them right now. It will make a tangible difference in our outreach to the City Council.


ACTION ITEM #2

Channel Your Voice June 2010 - Let's Make Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. the next Jim Garrison

Starting next Tuesday, June 1, NYC CAN will begin a four-week campaign to educate Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. about the destruction of Building 7. June is not a good time to contact the City Council because they are working around the clock to pass a budget by the end of the month, and this year’s budget is especially difficult because of the deep cuts being made. So, for the next month, it will be much more worthwhile to focus our efforts on the DA.

At the beginning of each week, we will send an email asking you to contact the DA about one particular area of evidence related to the destruction of Building 7. You will only be asked to contact the DA once per week. This is how the weeks will go:

Week 1: Getting the DA's office to watch footage of Building 7
Week 2: Testimonial Evidence
Week 3: Physical Evidence
Week 4: Technical Evidence (analysis of footage)

Each week we will provide a detailed template for what we would like you to address in your fax or mailed letter. We will ask you to forward the action alert to everyone you know so that by the end of the week the DA will have received at least a thousand faxes and letters.

For the first week, we will ask the DA’s office to watch footage of Building 7 at Building7Footage.com. Go check it out! It’s a 45-second video showing footage of Building 7 from three different angles, and it provides links to WTC7.net and AE911Truth.org for anyone interested in learning more. We hope Building7Footage.com will become a valuable tool for showing Building 7 footage to people who are not willing to give more than a minute of their time.

We also anticipate that Building7Footage.com will become a key tool in the year-long Building What? campaign (see below). The ultimate goal of Building What? is for footage of Building 7 to become widely viewed, sparking public outcry and leading to an investigation, just as the release of the Zapruder film 12 years after JFK’s assassination ignited widespread doubt of the official story and led to the House Select Committee on Assassinations.

NEWS ITEM #1

AE911Truth published a wonderful article by Shawn Hamilton reporting on our joint effort to make the City Council investigate the destruction of Building 7. The article does a great job of showing how the Channel Your Voice campaigns and our meetings with council members are laying the groundwork for the City Council to one day take action on Building 7.

Note: At the time the article was written we had met with seven council members. We have now met with ten council members.


NEWS ITEM #2

At the recent Understanding Deep Politics Conference, David Ray Griffin gave a talk entitled “Building What? How SCADS Can Be Hidden in Plain Sight”, which looked at how Building 7’s destruction has been hidden from public view. We encourage you to read the newly published article version of Mr. Griffin’s talk.

Mr. Griffin concludes this important article by proposing a year-long, movement-wide “Building What?” campaign to be commenced this September, building on the ground-breaking “Building What?” campaign you made possible in March and April. NYC CAN intends to collaborate with Mr. Griffin and other leading 9/11 organizations on planning and launching the year-long Building What? campaign.

NEWS ITEM #3

Former New Hampshire Governor Walter Peterson supports call for new investigation!
Vote For Answers New Hampshire came to a close on Tuesday, May 11, winning 27% of the vote in Peterborough and losing an unrecorded vote in Hanover.

The campaign added yet another article to its collection of positive mainstream coverage when on May 13 the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript published an article featuring interviews with several members and supporters of the campaign, including former Republican Governor of New Hampshire, Walter Peterson. In addition to serving as Governor, Mr. Peterson is a Trustee of the University System of New Hampshire. He also served as President of Franklin Pierce College, and was Honorary Chairman of John McCain’s 2008 New Hampshire campaign.

Quoting from the article:

Peterson, who signed the petition, told the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript yesterday that he did not expect the petition article to pass, but that asking questions when you have doubts is always the right thing to do.

“You should question some things if they don’t make sense,” he said. “I don’t think it’s unpatriotic.”

Peterson said both he and his wife, Dorothy, decided to support the petition article after watching one of the videos of the collapse of the Twin Towers, which he said looks like a controlled demolition to them.

“That raised questions because that’s not how a building would fall if it was attacked,” Peterson said. “Both Dorothy and I had viewed the video and there were certainly a lot of serious questions raised about what happened there.”

The full article is posted on the New Hampshire 9/11 Truth website. In the week leading up to the vote, Vote For Answers NH placed an ad in the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript that quoted Mr. Peterson as saying, “I think sufficient questions have been raised that a new and thorough investigation is warranted.”

With the support of Governor Peterson and former Keane Mayor Michael Blastos, the Monadnock 9/11 Truth Alliance, which organized the Vote For Answers campaign with NYC CAN’s assistance, will focus in the coming months on winning the support of the Keane Fire Department and getting a resolution introduced in the Keane City Council. The aim will be to hold a hearing to examine the unlawful destruction of evidence at Ground Zero before voting on a resolution calling for further investigation of the Twin Towers’ and Building 7’s destruction.

Thinkers think and talkers talk. Patriots ACT.

The September 2014 New York Times Billboard Will Stand Tall September 2nd - 30th: http://us1.campaign-archive2.com/?u=d03bf3ffcac549c7dc7888ef5&id=2ef73 7874b&e=[UNIQID]

'We at AE911Truth are delighted to announce that we reached our $30,000 fundraising goal for the September 2014 New York Times Billboard.

We would like to thank the hundreds of people who contributed their hard-earned dollars toward this powerful and provocative statement on the 13th Anniversary of 9/11. Together we are making it impossible for the public and the powers that be to ignore the irrefutable evidence of controlled demolition at the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Now we must work to ensure that this billboard draws all the attention it deserves, including a response from The New York Times Editorial Board. Stay tuned for important outreach efforts to happen this September, and thank you for being involved!'
