Text of the invitation:
We hope you will join us November 1, 2007 at 7 pm at the Grand Lake Theater to hear William Rodriguez, 9/11 hero, share his story about that day, what has happened since then, and the current efforts for a genuine investigation into the events of 9/11 , on his “Last Man Out World Tour,”. We will also hear from our special guest- Peter Dale Scott, author of The Road to 9/11- Wealth, Empire and the Future of America and Cindy Sheehan, founder of Gold Star Families for Peace, and author of Peace Mom: A Mother's Journey through Heartache to Activism.
We also hope that you stay for a reception in honor of William, Peter, Cindy and other local heroes from the 9/11 Truth, Impeachment, Peace and Justice movements. We hope that this will be an opportunity for us build stronger ties in the larger struggle to move us from Empire towards Earth Community.
The Empire’s foundational myths are crumbling. All warfare is based on deception, reality and truth can be obscured, censored, disguised, but like water and life, seeps past those who aspire to control and define it to serve a small class of people at the great expense of humanity and planet. Eyewitnesses, emerging technologies, the recognition of the ever increasing inter-dependence of life, the sheer courage and creativity of those who love life and care about the future are nurturing a global movement to challenge the paradigm of violent domination.
Jimi Hendrix wrote: “When the Power of Love Overcomes the Love of Power, the World will know Peace.”
Joanna Macy and David Korten use the term “The Great Turning” to describe the time that we are living in. Some people fear that it might be “The Great Unraveling.” Perhaps, for war criminals and war profiteers, the future is grim.
Aung Sung Suu Kyi wrote: "It is not power that corrupts, but fear -- fear of losing power and fear of the scourge of those who wield it."
Fear is the real enemy. Courage, love, healthy connection to one’s soul, friends, family, community, humanity, Earth is the solution.
This October, as the occupants of the White House and Congress scream for war. We are actively calling, working for peace, impeachment, truth, transparency, accountability. Only the growing tide of humanity throughout the world, a breakthrough in consciousness I this country can break the War Trance and redirect our resources from conquest towards redemption.
We are not powerless; we are not alone. We have courage, truth, peace, justice, humanity and life on our side and we will celebrate, being together on this journey together.
The Northern California 9/11 Truth Alliance is one of the oldest 9/11 Truth groups, comprised of people who anonymously gathered for the first street actions “Demanding an Investigation of 9/11” and challenging the official narrative. We published the first Deception Dollars to overcome media censorship of the basic facts about 9/11. We have organized the first showings of 9/11 documentaries, the San Francisco International Inquiry into 9/11, innumerable marches, rallies, educational events, with the help of innumerable people and organizations that have endorsed, sponsored and contributed to all of our efforts. Our stated mission is:
“to seek and disseminate truths about the terrible crimes committed on September 11, 2001, exposing gaps and deceptions in the official story, and to thus inspire more eyewitness revelations, truthful media coverage, and a movement that will bring the responsible criminals to justice and eliminate governmental and corporate policies that enable criminal elements to commit such acts."
Although we have held regular meetings since December 2002, and are able to accept tax deductible donations through Agape Foundation (since 2004), we are an all volunteer, unincorporated association (basically a mission driven ad-hoc group of activists), that relies totally on the energy, creativity, efforts of each of us.
