|"ReThink911," the global 9/11 anniversary campaign, has only until August 11 to raise a further $25,000 to reach the target amount--$225,000--it is aiming to raise, to purchase advertising in 11 major cities around the world. I've copied below a message about this. If you have not already done so, please consider going to http://rethink911.org and making a donation, to help with this most worthy campaign.
As an architect, I’ve worked on some very exciting projects, but I’ve never felt this good about them. I am thrilled to be joined by David Ray Griffin, Steven Jones, and Kevin Ryan in letting you know that, yesterday, the ReThink911 campaign surpassed the milestone of $200,000 in donations for our global advertising and grassroots effort.
Reaching this milestone represents an unprecedented achievement for AE911Truth, and for the 9/11 Truth Movement as whole, as we continue to work toward an independent investigation into the destruction of all three WTC skyscrapers on 9/11. If you are receiving this email—regardless of whether you’ve donated to ReThink911or not—you have played a part in bringing the 9/11 Truth Movement to this moment. David, Steven, Kevin, and I thank you personally for your support and commitment to this vitally important cause.
Earlier this year, AE911Truth, together with Remember Building 7 and a coalition of more than 40 organizations, set out to raise $225,000 to purchase outdoor and mass-transit advertising in 11 major cities around the globe—spearheaded by a 50-foot-tall billboard in the heart of Times Square. Our goal was to educate tens of millions of people about the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7, and in so doing spark a level of public discussion unseen until now. Today, we are only $25,000 shy of that goal!
Can we count on you for your support at this critical juncture? We must raise the remaining $25,000 by August 11, exactly one month before the 12th Anniversary, and we cannot do it without your support.
If you haven’t given yet to ReThink911, this is your last opportunity. If you have
given, we thank you! Will you please consider giving again to this world-changing campaign?
Please go to ReThink911.org right now, and give generously to the city of your choice or to the “All Cities Fund,” and help us cross the finish line by August 11.
With your generous donation of $50 or more, you will receive your very own copy of the official ReThink911 metro ad, which will be seen by millions of San Francisco residents during September. This piece of history can be all yours as a souvenir of your involvement in the campaign that “tipped the planet” to widespread awareness of the all-important truth about 9/11.
Please donate today, so that we can educate tens of millions of people this September. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.
Yours in solidarity,
Richard Gage, AIA, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth,
with Steven Jones, Scholars for 9/11 Truth and Justice,
David Ray Griffin, 9/11 Consensus Panel,
and Kevin Ryan, Journal of 9/11 Studies
You can also mail in your check made out to
2342 Shattuck Ave., Suite#189
Berkeley, CA 94704
And be sure to write “ReThink911” in the memo!
P.S. Check out ReThink911’s video page to see all the wonderful things we’ve been doing, including our most recent release, an interview with Kevin Ryan expressing his support for ReThink911.

|NCSEA Summit in Las Vegas: 25 New Structural Engineer Petition Signers!:
'........Several of the structural engineers were new to the evidence and signed our petition on the spot. Other visitors wanted to first watch AE911Truth's DVD, Firefighters Architects & Engineers – Expose 9/11 Myths, read our new 50-page booklet, Beyond Misinformation, and peruse the brochure they received.
When the event was coming to a close, Dusterwald reflected on the success of the outreach effort:
We're getting some good responses from people who are willing to look at the evidence. Of course, there are a few who don't want to hear about it and get a bit hostile.
When you grab people walking by, you might think they'd be annoyed that they're being roped in for a speech or something, but a lot of them are very interested. When they see the videos on our two screens running the collapse of Building 7 over and over every ten seconds, and they hear us ask if they think a fire could bring the building down, they can't help but give their honest opinion: "No . . . that looks like a controlled demolition."
It's really rewarding to find all these hard-nosed structural engineers opening their minds, evaluating the evidence, taking our literature, and listening to our explanations.
It's just such an obvious video. You can see the building coming apart a little bit as it's coming down, but basically it just stays together all the way down to the ground, until it's just a pile of rubble. So they can't believe that anybody would come to the conclusion of "destruction by fire."
The petition-signing rate is remarkably high, I think, given how skeptical and scientific these people are. The ones who don't sign immediately are saying, “Let me think about it.”
Also, they're usually on their way to somewhere when they come by here, so we don't have much time with them. One type of visitor stops for a few minutes and picks up some literature. Then there's another type of visitor who stays for 10 minutes and talks with us in detail.
I see hardly anybody refusing the DVDs or literature. It seems like everybody will at least take our Beyond Misinformation booklet or a copy of our 15-minute DVD of Ed Asner saying, "Did you know that a third tower came down on 9/11?" or our three-page foldout brochure "Why architects and engineers should support a new investigation," into which we put the flyer for our film screening presentation on Saturday at the Sahara Library.
Some people just take the petition with them, say, "I don’t sign anything on the spot," which is a sensible viewpoint. They take the petition with them, read it when they have time, then decide to sign it and drop it by our booth later on. I'm amazed at how many others will sign it right as we're talking to them. They look at the video, agree that it looks like a controlled demolition, see that all we're asking for is another investigation, realize that's not too much to ask, and sign on the spot.
Sure, it costs money to be here, but it's worth it, because that's the only way we can get our message out there to the profession. You've got to spend the money to get results.
We're reaching high-level people here. Some key engineers from one structural engineering firm that has done some analysis on World Trade Center 7 came by.
An engineer from another major engineering firm said that he did research on Buildings 1 and 2 and was dissatisfied with the official explanation for their destruction. He was astounded to learn about Building 7, which he hadn't heard about all these years after 9/11. So he was very interested in our display, and he talked with us for about 15 minutes. He disagreed with some of our points, but he was intellectually engaged, and he was discussing things with us in a reasonable way. He wasn't ranting or hostile. Before he left, he took a DVD, some literature, and our petition, which he said he might sign and return later on, after he had a chance to evaluate everything for himself.
We have found that we can't push these engineers too far. We generally stick with Building 7, because that's enough for them to handle. We gauge their responses, and we see that most of them just aren't ready to move on — especially when they tell us that "everybody knows how the Twin Towers came down." We don't want to challenge their basic assumptions before they're ready to reconsider them. To do that would risk setting their world on fire.
But even when they've dug in their heels on Buildings 1 and 2, they are willing to think differently about Building 7 when they approach our booth. They know it wasn't hit by a plane and they're looking at this footage of the collapse. Every time they watch the video, it becomes more obvious to them that it was a controlled demolition. Still, it's funny how when someone is so used to agreeing with the official story, they almost don't want to believe their eyes. That's why some of them, no matter how many times they look at that footage, still hang on to the official story that fire could have done that. At some point, though, anybody with a structural engineering degree — anybody who knows the laws of physics — has to eventually admit the truth.....'
