Hall, author of Waking the Global Heart Anodea Judith, author of World as Love, World as Joanna Macy, filmmaker Ken Jenkins, and radio hosts Bonnie Faulkner, Carol Brouillet and Sherry Glaser-Love. In addition to the films Psywar, You, Me & the SPP: Trading Democracy for Corporate Rule, Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup, Hypothesis, and 9/11: Explosive Evidence Experts Speak Out, there will be live streaming from 9/11 events in Toronto and Seattle.
The Toronto Hearings, sponsored by the International Center for 9/11 Studies, will be held at Ryerson University for four days beginning on September 8th. These hearings will examine evidence for the inadequacy of the U.S. governments’ investigation and will request that a full and impartial investigation be launched into the events of 9/11, which have been used to initiate military invasions and to restrict the rights of citizens. The founder of Firefighters for 9/11 Truth, Erik Lawyer, is organizing ONE: The Event - Shifting from Fear to Love, a three-day event in Seattle designed to encourage the choice of love over fear, kindness over anger, and responsibility rather than blame.
9/11 Reclaiming the Truth, Reclaiming Our Future is a benefit for the Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance, whose purpose is to explore the truth and meaning behind the events of 9/11, to honor the dead and dying, and to share stories, insights and research about that day, the forgotten history that led up to it, and the decade that followed. Tickets are $10 ($7 for seniors, students, low-income) at the door and are available in advance through the Grand Lake Theater website and for the Herbst event through the City Box Office.
A tentative schedule with details about the speakers and films is posted online.

LATEST READER COMMENT:

As he points out, the torture is only the most recent expression of American policies that amount to a form of state terrorism.
. . . instead of accepting the significance of the war on terror in undermining the rule of law, the report has served the Obama administration as another component of an ideological spinning wheel. . ...more.
