911Truth.org: An Overview
Educating about 9/11 Truth. As the leading portal of the September 11th research community and truth movement, 911Truth.org and its staff members have accumulated vast practical experience in investigation and in campaigns for education, visibility, media, lobbying, street action and litigation.
Linking to New York and the People. 911Truth.org honors and follows the September 11th families who fight for full disclosure; the first responders who paid the ultimate price; the Ground Zero workers who risked their health in the aftermath of the disaster; the New Yorkers and others who were primary targets of the trauma and psychological warfare of 9/11/2001; the researchers who are rigorous in logic and relentless in running facts to ground; the whistleblowers and eyewitnesses speaking out against the September 11th cover-up; and all citizens of courage who are ready to come forward in the fight for justice and truth.
Leading a Political Transformation. We understand that September 11th was an international disaster that sparked a negative global transformation, and that control of its interpretation partly determines how one views the world. 911Truth.org looks not to create a new conspiracy industry, but to achieve full disclosure of hidden realities that affect all of our lives, that we may finally be sovereign as a democratic people. We work to win the hearts and minds of the people.
About Our Website: The 911Truth.org website speaks
for itself. Grassroots contacts, local groups, and sites on the links
page or elsewhere at the site are listed for outreach and informational purposes only--911Truth.org does not necessarily endorse, does not speak for these individuals, nor do they speak for this site.
No groups, including those which use '911truth.org' within their name, are representatives of 911truth.org; for instance, NY911truth.org is an entirely separate,
We do not have "chapters" or "members." We do have hundreds of thousands
of activists (millions, now?) who work together with us through this autonomous,
A Commitment to More Civil and Effective Collaboration in the 9/11 Truth
Movement Because we still lack subpoena and discovery powers, members
of the 9/11 truth movement and American citizens as a whole will not be
able to fully connect the "dots" of 9/11 events until key classified documents
and videos are leaked or released. In the meantime, many of us will develop
theories about those events and what really occurred. Given the incompleteness
of the facts at hand, our theories will invariably differ. They therefore
can and should be sincerely discussed and analyzed, but this debate must
not obscure the reality that the investigative tasks we face still remain
extremely challenging. We believe our campaign to expose the truth of
9/11 offers the world more essential insights into current political and
economic reality than any other modern movement and therefore can empower
the most profound social transformation of our age. This work is far too
important to debilitate with egotism, zealotry or self-inflicted wounds,
and we must make every effort to sustain the unprecedented progress we
have made. Because the 9/11 truth movement presents grave moral, legal
and political threats to those in power, we would be naive to not anticipate
covert governmental intervention in our activities and attempts to divide,
disrupt and discredit us by promoting hateful or repellant theories and
sowing internal discord. Indeed, the greatest risk these forces pose to
our work is not espionage or disinformation; it is the provocation of
destructive mistrust between authentic activists. We the undersigned therefore
commit ourselves to work together towards our greater goals with the least
possible rancor and internal strife. We agree to reject ad hominem denunciations
and attacks upon others' motives, and focus our critical attention upon
the logic, factual evidence and probability supporting certain hypotheses
instead. Our ultimate goal must be the full disclosure of 9/11 truth,
which is disserved by factional warfare on behalf of partial points of
view. We will strive to fill in the gaps of the evidentiary record, so
that facts dictate our conclusions rather than conjecture or emotional
charges and appeals. Finally, since we ourselves must embody the societal
changes we wish to see, we vow to continue our work with fierce devotion,
but also with mutual respect, selflessness and above all, honesty. Click

An outline of the case for doubting the "Official Story," in key words and simple talking points.
TO EXPOSE the official lies and cover-up surrounding the events
of September 11th, 2001 in a way that inspires the people to overcome denial
and understand the truth; namely, that elements within the US government and
covert policy apparatus must have orchestrated or participated in the execution
of the attacks for these to have happened in the way that they did.
TO PROMOTE, and in part to provide, the best in investigative
reporting, scholarly research and public education regarding the suppressed
realities of September 11th, its aftermath and exploitation for political ends,
the toxic air cover-up, and the anthrax attacks; mindful always of standards
of fact and logic, the limits of what we know in the absence of official investigative
powers, and the dangers of rumor and unconfirmed or false claims.
TO ORGANIZE and network grassroots communities promoting
truth and reform and to promote global grassroots cooperation to halt
corporatist crimes, abuse and dominion worldwide.
TO SEEK justice and redress for those wronged on September
11th, or as a result of the events, beginning with complete disclosure of all
records and evidence; reversal of all domestic and foreign policies following
from the false premises of the official story; and full accountability for any
and all individuals inside and outside the US government involved in the attacks
who engaged in crimes of commission, facilitation, complicity, gross negligence,
cover-up or obstruction of justice after the fact.
TO ADVANCE the insight that ending a world in which 9/11-type
and other "synthetic" events dictate the agenda requires the fall
of the present US and global system of warfare and fraud, of secret government
and hidden economics, of power concentrated in the hands of the vanishingly
few; the rebirth of constitutional, open and accountable republican institutions
with absolute protection for the natural rights and liberties of human beings;
the rise of popular sovereignty over polity and economy; and commitment to the
purposes of truth and justice, freedom and equality, peace and solidarity among
human beings of all lands, and security and a sustainable living for all; cognizant
that the tensions inherent among these purposes are to be addressed and resolved
only in an open and peaceful fashion by a sovereign, educated and fully informed
people who always hold truth first.
TO END, by way of integrity and god-given creativity, the
regime and illicit power structures responsible for 9/11 and to replace the
system that made 9/11 necessary. We solicit collaboration with others who are
committed to achieving these goals by way of peaceful transformation.
We carefully review the articles, books, videos, sites and other resources published and linked on this site. Of the many works about 9/11 now in circulation, we strive to promote the best.
- We urge everyone to fact-check, engage in due diligence, and research issues from all angles. It is important to expose mistakes, and we are happy to correct our own when these occur.
- Some works about 9/11 forward ungrounded claims based on misinterpretations, distortions or even fabricated evidence. Others reveal racist or extremist biases. We avoid both types of distraction by focusing on the most promising lines of inquiry and bodies of evidence; those that have stood up to the scrutiny of peer review, have been subjected to expert analysis, and as a result are winning in the court of public opinion.
- Beyond issues of factual content, we prefer to disengage from individuals who employ vitriol or highly-charged rhetoric. We value positive and sober approaches over heavy-handed ones that might alienate potential allies.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE 9/11 TRUTH MOVEMENT AND 911TRUTH.ORG
Ever since the moment of the first impact at the World Trade Center, a struggle has raged between two broad, competing ideas of what really happened on September 11th, 2001.
The US administration delivered an almost immediate verdict, which can be described as follows: Dispatched by Osama Bin Ladin's network and motivated by hatred and religious fanaticism, 19 suicide bombers hijacked four planes, crashed three of them into their targets, and caused the collapse of the Twin Towers as a consequence of the resulting damage and fires. The 19 men did not necessarily require any accomplices within the United States; and no one in the US government could have possibly anticipated or prevented the attacks.
Even as the administration exploited this Official Story (or "Official Conspiracy Theory") as the pretext to launch new wars long in the making, independent researchers began to accumulate a vast body of evidence suggesting a different narrative for 9/11: that of the False Flag Operation.
The 9/11 events and the anomalies in the official story raised Unanswered Questions about:
- the unprecedented failure of the US air defense system on the morning of the attacks;
- the AWOL military chain of command during the actual attacks, including the inexplicable behavior of the presidential entourage;
- the seeming impossibility of official claims with regard to Flight 77;
- the evidence that Flight 93 was shot down;
- contradictions and dubious evidence in the official claims about the alleged hijackers and masterminds, and doubts about their real identities;
- signs that the alleged hijackers enjoyed high-level protection against discovery by honest investigators;
- evidence that the alleged hijackers were financed by states allied with US intelligence;
- suspicious and massive international financial trades suggesting foreknowledge of the attacks;
- widespread signs of official foreknowledge and, in fact, advance preparation for the 9/11 attack scenario;
- the long-running links between Islamist fundamentalist terror cells and US covert operations, dating back to CIA support for the anti-Soviet mujahedeen and Osama Bin Ladin himself;
- the demolition-like collapse of the Twin Towers and of a third skyscraper, WTC 7;
- and questions concerning who could have logically expected to derive benefit in the aftermath of a massive attack on the United States.
The suspicions received further confirmation a few weeks after September 11th, with the arrival of anthrax letters targeted only at opposition politicians and media figures, and timed to coincide with the introduction of the USA PATRIOT Act.
Already within those first weeks, loose networks of researchers and investigators formed via the Internet to generally become known as the "9/11 skeptics." They presented substantial bodies of evidence to show that elements within the US government must have been involved in facilitating or orchestrating the attacks - in other words, that 9/11 was possibly a classic case of "false-flag" or synthetic terrorism, such as corrupt states have often perpetrated on their own citizens.
What motive would people in the US government or establishment have to commit crimes of this magnitude? The outrage caused by September 11th allowed the present administration to instantly implement policies its members have long supported, but which were otherwise infeasible. 9/11 was exploited to launch an open-ended, perpetual "war on terror," actually a war against any and all enemies the US government may designate. The case of Iraq shows that the target countries of this war need have nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11.
The invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan were both planned and prepared in advance of September 11th, with the apparent motive of gaining geostrategic advantage and seizing vital resources. The architects of the Iraq invasion within the Bush administration had earlier been members of the Project for a New American Century. In the PNAC manifesto of September 2000 ("Rebuilding America's Defenses"), they admitted that the American people would be unwilling to pay the stiff price for US global hegemony, full-spectrum military dominance, and the imposition of a new order in the Middle East - unwilling, that is, in the absence of a catalyzing event, an epochal lesson such as a "new Pearl Harbor."
9/11 put the nation on a permanent war footing, allowed the extension of secrecy doctrines, and temporarily deified the President. The unprecedented public fear was stoked and exploited to allow a roll-back of domestic rights and liberties, as had long been advocated by key members of the Bush administration (and their allies in both major parties). 9/11 allowed the designation of "enemy combatants" in violation of international law; preventive detention and the open use of torture; the activation of long-standing "shadow government" plans; the passage of measures officially undermining constitutional government; and a wholesale re-definition of US geopolitics and American society itself.
Perhaps most important of all to potential conspirators, trillions of dollars in spending priorities were predictably shifted from "butter" to "guns" in the years after September 11th, unleashing a new wave of growth and profiteering in the war and security industries. 9/11 became a pretext for economic crisis management and transformation under the cover of war and counterterror.
From the beginning, those who doubted the official story saw the potential for achieving a different kind of global transformation. By exposing the great fraud to the public, the 9/11 dissidents hoped to reverse the policies adopted after September 11th; to end the wars; to reveal a long and sordid history of covert operations, black budgets and hidden economics; to wake up the American people to the reality of the globalist drive to corporate feudalism, which is destroying the natural environment and the lives of the planetary majority; and to motivate the people to act against this sea of troubles.
The first two years after September 11th saw the rise of the Families' Movement , which kept the issue of the "unanswered questions" alive, and which forced the creation of the official 9/11 Commission. The Bush administration acted to delay, stonewall and starve all official investigations - with the complicity of the mainstream media, who ignored the festering questions or at best ridiculed those who asked them.
Many signs confirmed that there was indeed a 9/11 Cover-up: outrageous conflicts of interest within official investigating bodies, such as the appointment of Henry Kissinger and then Philip Zelikow to the 9/11 Commission; destruction of evidence; the silencing of whistleblowers; and the promotion of the very officials who were responsible for the supposed failures of September 11th. For many, the 9/11 cover-up itself became the smoking gun pointing to wrongdoing: the untenable excuses of massive serial incompetence; the endless coincidences; the insulting fairy tale that "no one could have imagined planes as weapons"; the omission and suppression of any evidence contradicting the official story.
The 9/11 truth movement evolved alongside the families' movement. By the time of the second anniversary, in September 2003, the 9/11 skeptics network was able to draw thousands of participants to research conferences in New York City, Berlin, London, Toronto, the Bay Area, Durham NH, and other cities. March 2004 saw the "Citizens' Inquiry into 9-11: Phase One" at the historic Herbst Theater in San Francisco (where the UN Charter was signed). Researchers and dissidents from many cities and countries flocked to the movement's first great summit, achieving the first breakthroughs in the US mainstream media. The 9/11 truth movement entered American politics as a growing presence.
On the final days of the San Francisco conference, veterans of the previous two years of actions and energetic newcomers came together to contemplate how to:
- boost the resources available for 9/11 truth activism;
- sharpen the message and coordinate actions;
- conduct a national campaign for 9/11 truth, keeping in mind that full disclosure is likely to trigger enormous global transformations.
These meetings resolved to create a formal organization to serve these ends. As a result, 911Truth.org was launched in June 2004. (The web site at http://www.911truth.org had already served the movement as a switchboard and events calendar under the name of "9/11 Truth Alliance." That name is still shared by certain local activist groups, as in the Bay Area.)
Under its first executive director David Kubiak and current executive director Janice Matthews, 911Truth.org has been ahead of major developments, breaking exclusives, promoting the best in research and action, and orchestrating coups like the Zogby 9/11 poll of August 2004, which found that a majority of New York City residents believe government leaders were in some way complicit in 9/11 and a national Zogby poll in May 2006, which found that 45% of voting age Americans think "Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success".
The skeptical paradigm is now the subject of more than a dozen well-researched books and, since 2004, "Justice for 9/11," a citizens' complaint and petition to the New York State Attorney General, sponsored by 911Truth.org, 911CitizensWatch and World Trade Center Environmental Organization. The petition demands a grand jury be convened to investigate the still-unsolved crimes of September 11th (see www.Justicefor911.org).
With each passing year, the case for complicity has only become stronger. Since 2001, a wealth of new evidence has been accumulated on issues such as:
- the wargames and terror drills of September 11th, which appear to have provided the cover and means by which air defenses were circumvented and an inside job was executed;
- the thorough surveillance of the alleged hijackers by US and allied intelligence agencies for many years in advance of 9/11, including a stunning 2005 admission that a military program was keeping track of Atta and the other alleged ringleaders (Able Danger);
- the construction of "Osama Bin Ladin," "Abu Musab Zarqawi" and other alleged masterminds of terror through video fakery and at-times absurd propaganda; and
- the mounting evidence that the Twin Towers and WTC 7 were indeed destroyed by explosives planted in the buildings.
As its record of achievement shows (see below), 911Truth.org has proven extraordinarily effective in reaching the public, sparking involvement and raising awareness of deception, cover-up and the need for investigation and action.
A Few Highlights and Major Initiatives
911Truth.org - the Website
We serve the public and the September 11th truth and justice movement by providing the leading Web portal to the 9/11 research and action community. 911Truth.org stands as one of the best publications in its own right, coupling mass appeal with vetted research that aims for the jugular, upholding highest standards of fact and logic, and archiving the best reporting, analysis, A/V material and teaching resources. A few of our many sister and spin-off sites include the "Justice for 9/11" complaint at www.Justicefor911.org, "The 9/11 Reading Room" archive at 911readingroom.org, the "9/11 Visibility Project" at septembereleventh.org, and websites of the many 911truth.org-affiliated grassroots groups around the world.
From New York 2003 to Chicago 2006 - and Beyond
911Truth.org, its staff and board members look back on a long and proud record of co-organizing research and strategy conferences to expose the 9/11 cover-up. Several of these have been held in New York City, with other major gatherings in San Francisco and Toronto (2004), Berlin (2003), and the "Emergency Truth Convergence" (2005) in Washington DC, as well as many other events on a smaller scale. The conferences have acted as the nerve center of a growing 9/11 truth movement. They have also resulted in hundreds of hours of self-produced educational media, reaching millions of people with the facts of 9/11 through the Web, DVD and public-access TV broadcasts. We do not merely try to affect corporate media coverage of the issues; increasingly we are becoming the media. The legacy continued in 2006 with Revealing the Truth - Reclaiming Our Future, an international gathering that broke new ground for the 9/11 truth movement in Chicago.
The 9/11 Zogby Polls
41 percent of New York State residents agree with the belief that US government leaders knew about 9/11 in advance and consciously allowed it to happen, according to an August 2004 telephone survey of 800 adults. Commissioned by 911Truth.org, the survey also found that two-thirds of New York City residents support a new independent investigation into the crimes of September 11th. Thanks to the Zogby poll, 911Truth.org was able to show that the numbers of people harboring well-justified doubts about the Official Story are growing, and that 9/11 truth is a mainstream position. In a follow-up, we conducted the WBAI-FM/911Truth.org New York Lawmaker Survey of city, state and federal legislators representing constituencies in New York City. We aim to marshal support among members of the New York state assembly and senate, city council, and US congress for a new criminal investigation of September 11th, whether by the New York Attorney General, the Congress or a new, truly independent, non-governmental and non-corporate body. In May, 2006, 911Truth.org commission Zogby International to conduct another poll, this time national in scope. Results of that poll, which found that over 70 million voting age Americans distrust the official 9/11 story and support a new investigation of possible US government role in the attacks. Details are in our press release. Briefly, poll results indicated 42% believe there has indeed been a cover up (with 10% unsure) and 45% think "Congress or an International Tribunal should re-investigate the attacks, including whether any US government officials consciously allowed or helped facilitate their success" (with 8% unsure).
The Spitzer Complaint: "Justice for 9/11"
In 2004 the staff and board members of 911Truth.org researched, wrote and presented a complaint to New York State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer, petitioning him to immediately convene a grand jury on the still-unsolved crimes of September 11th, 2001. Advised by Attorney Carolyn Betts, we published this thorough, well-grounded legal pleading at www.Justicefor911.org , in a partnership with 911CitizensWatch and the World Trade Center Environmental Organization. Unlike other states, New York allows no formal process for filings with the Attorney General. Given that Spitzer was unwilling to even talk about a new investigation, and has now become Governor of New York, "Justice for 9/11" is as much a public campaign as a legal one. The Petition of Solidarity in support of the complaint currently stands at 15,000 confirmed signatories. The action shall now extend to filings with attorney generals in other states, in the hope of sparking a cooperative approach based on the model of the tobacco and Microsoft cases. We shall pursue this effort until an Attorney General does his duty by the citizens of New York, or until other prosecutors show the courage and conviction that truth, justice and the security of the people demand.
The 911 Truth Statement
Launched to accompany the Spitzer Complaint, the Statement was signed by more than 100 luminaries from many fields, representing all political persuasions; among them are scientists, artists, writers, musicians, former government officials, a Congresswoman, and all three of the 2004 major third-party presidential candidates. The Statement was also signed by fifty members of September 11th families.
The Emergency Truth Convergence
A three-day conference in Washington DC (July 22-24, 2005) was timed to coincide with the one-year anniversary of The 9/11 Commission Report release. Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney also took the one-year anniversary as the occasion to hold hearings on Capitol Hill on July 22. These were broadcast on C-SPAN and took testimony from Paul Thompson, Nafeez Ahmed, Michael Ruppert, John Judge, Peter Dale Scott et al., most of whom also participated as speakers in the subsequent Emergency Truth Convergence organized by 911Truth.org. The "ETC" opened with a National Press Club briefing by Peter Phillips of Project Censored, New Pearl Harbor author David Ray Griffin, and documentary film-maker Danny Schechter. The "Defeat Lethal Deceit" rally at Lafayette Park on Saturday brought 9/11 truth to the public spaces of Washington for the first time. A C-SPAN "Book TV" taping focused on Nafeez Ahmed's The War on Freedom. A national "Beyond Downing Street" Town Hall meeting and 18 education and strategy sessions focused on unity among a few of the major "truth disclosure" campaigns, focusing not only on 9/11 but the US government's lies to justify the illegal invasion of Iraq; the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995; the stolen elections of 2000 and 2004; the poisoning of the world through the use of depleted uranium munitions; veterans' needs; corporate media control; and the continuing cover-up of the June 8, 1967 attack on the USS Liberty.
The Omissions Hearings
The 9/11 Citizens' Commission (New York City, Sept. 9th, 2004) posed a direct response to The 9/11 Commission Report . Co-chaired by former Rep. Cynthia McKinney (who has since returned to Congress) and former Bush I official Catherine Austin Fitts, the panel of citizens' commissioners included Ground Zero triage doctor Faiz Khan and September 11th family member Bob McIlvaine, father of Robert McIlvaine Jr. The commissioners heard testimony from witnesses, whistleblowers and leading 9/11 researchers, among them Indira Singh, Jenna Orkin, John Judge, Michael Ruppert, Michael Springmann, Kyle Hence, Nicholas Levis and others. The resulting video record is a highlight of peer-reviewed 9/11 research and public education. Eight hundred people attended the full-day event, which culminated with the world premiere of Barrie Zwicker's film, "The Great Conspiracy."
Monitoring the Government 9/11 Commission
Beginning in 2003, members of 911Truth.org and then-allied 911CitizensWatch attended & monitored all of the public hearings of the government's 9/11 Commission, until the publication of The 9/11 Commission Report . They lobbied the Commission to take testimony under oath, until it finally began swearing-in all public witnesses. They directed a campaign to assure that Condoleeza Rice's testimony was heard under oath and in public. Their hard-hitting press conferences on the concerns of the September 11th families were often broadcast on C-SPAN, and provided public support to whistleblowers like Sibel Edmonds and April Gallop. 911Truth.org co-published the Official 9/11 Cover-up Guide , Parts I & II. These brochures were distributed to the public, 9/11 Commissioners, family members and the press during the last two Commission hearings in May and June 2004 (and are still available online.) They kept track of the proceedings, providing in-depth reporting from the Commission beat, sometimes as the only source on major stories (such as the Max Cleland resignation). Finally, when the 9/11 Commission concluded what turned out to be a two-year-long whitewash, they exposed its omissions, distortions, failings and staggering conflicts of interest.
Getting the Message Out
Examples of our media work. See our "Multimedia" and "In the Media" pages for archived recordings and articles.
Telling Our Own Story: 911Truth.org members have written more than 100 articles for publications worldwide.
Media Breakthroughs: 911Truth.org Media Coordinator Mike Berger appeared on CNN's "Showbiz Tonight," in the aftermath to Charlie Sheen's controversial March 2006 comments. (See the clip at the "Multimedia" page.) 911Truth.org members and activities were the subject of cover features in New York magazine, The Village Voice and other major publications.
Breaking News: 911Truth.org and its staff members have broken a number of major news stories, including the revelation that, in the weeks after 9/11, the "black boxes" from the two airplanes that hit the Twin Towers were found by federal agents at Ground Zero. (The US government and the 9/11 Commission claim that "no traces" of these devices have ever been found.) 911Truth.org also published the original stories about Kevin Ryan, the whistleblower fired by Underwriters Laboratories in October 2005. Ryan revealed details of UL's materials testing for the government's World Trade Center study. (The studies showed that the WTC steel should have withstood the fires, raising doubts about official explanations of how the Twin Towers collapsed.) The 911Truth.org website is the venue of choice for new work by some of the movement's leading writers, including David Ray Griffin, David Kubiak, and many others.
David Kubiak's story on the press blackout of September 11th widow Ellen Mariani and her racketeering suit against the Bush administration won a prestigious Top Ten Award from Project Censored in 2004.
Video Revolution: We have helped support production of various high-quality, professional DVDs of unassailable facts relating to 9/11 truth, including some made for free or low-cost mass distribution, and campaign to air these on public access stations across the United States.
"Waking Amy": 911Truth.org ran a successful 2004 campaign to get New Pearl Harbor author David Ray Griffin on Amy Goodman's "Democracy Now!" broadcast.
911Truth.org current and former board members, like David Kubiak and Les Jamieson, have produced and broadcast many hours of 9/11 truth programming on the Pacifica flagship station, WBAI-FM in New York.
We have responded to countless media calls, providing speakers for hundreds of print interviews and radio hours. Here are a few of the outlets that mentioned 911Truth.org and its sister organizations, or interviewed or quoted board members and staff, just in the two years since September 11, 2004:

Events and Campaigns
Ever since the founding of 911Truth.org and its precursor, "The 9/11 Truth Alliance" at the same Web site, the group's board has initiated or played key roles in the following actions and events:
Protesting for 9/11 Truth: In cities across the US, 911Truth.org has distributed thousands of signs announcing the presence of 9/11 truth blocks at major antiwar rallies. Signs reading "Stop the 9/11 Cover-up" have appeared on the front pages of Newsday, the Los Angeles Times and many other publications. 911Truth.org provided full support to the largest street protests devoted exclusively to September 11th truth demands. On September 11th 2005 in New York City, hundreds of people marched from The New York Times building to the United Nations to "End the 9/11 Media Blackout" and demand an international truth commission. Massive protests at Ground Zero on September 11th, 2006 went down in history as "The Day the Lie Died," with over 2,000 participants.
"Summer of Truth 2004" (Aug. 2004, New York City) : A series of breakthrough events, that began with a week full of protests and teach-ins during the Republican National Convention and culminated with the 9/11 Citizens' Commission ("The Omissions Hearings") on Sept. 9 and the massive "Confronting the Evidence" show on Sept. 11 (the latter co-organized with Walden Three). These drew thousands of participants and led to a massive expansion of activist involvement in the most crucial of all locations for the movement.
DNC "Expose the 9/11 Cover-Up" (July 2004, Boston): Workshops and teach-ins, thousands of signs and flyers given to activists who gathered for the Democratic Party convention.
"Dude, There's More to the Story" (June 2004): Mass national leafleting of Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" on its debut at theaters across the US and Canada, urging viewers to learn about the issues that Moore's film did not approach and to get involved with 911Truth.org.
The second "International Citizens' Inquiry into 9-11" (May 2004, Toronto).
Ongoing: Series of lectures and films at St. Mark's Church in Manhattan, as covered in New York magazine and The Village Voice .
The Vigil for Truth at Ground Zero has taken the case directly to the public at the former World Trade Center site, almost every Saturday since January 2004.
"Globalize 9/11 Truth" (October, 2004): Campaign delivered 9/11 info flyers to all permanent UN missions and got thousands worldwide to contact them and urge pursuit of 9/11 truth.
