On 19 February 2010 a press conference was held concurrently in 19 states, 3 continents, 6 countries, 38 cities and 48 locations, as more than 1,000 architects and engineers worldwide now support the call for a new investigation into the destruction of the Twin Towers and Building 7 at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
Ae911truth.org press release
The Sydney press conference (pictured above) was held outside St Mary’s Cathedral.
On today’s show Richard Gage AIA, founding member of Ae911truth.org, joins us to discuss all matters pertaining to the the 9/11 truth movement and the growing demand for a truly independent, subpoena powered investigation.
As of the date of posting, 1046 registered architects and engineers have now signed the petition.
In the second half of the show we bring you the audio from the Sydney press conference and a recent TV interview with NYC CAN Outreach Director Manny Badillo.]]>
With the publication today of a half page spread in Sydney’s leading broadsheet newspaper, we can finally announce that the eight year blackout on reportage of the worldwide movement for truth and justice known as the 9/11 Truth Movement, has finally ended.
This is a very important day for all of us who have fought to bring this information to light, whether through street activism, blogging, or even just trying to convince our friends and family that this is real and important.
Today there are two stories in the Sydney Morning Herald:
Utzon’s son signs up for September 11 conspiracy theory
Fire, not a government plot, felled third tower
In tonight’s edition of Truth News Radio Australia we discuss these stories with a very courageous hotelier who can justly take some credit for Jan Utzon’s “conversion” to the 9/11 truth movement.
No evidence of explosions ..?
A selection of firefighter and rescue worker statements consistent with explosive demolition:
At that time I started walking back up towards Vesey Street. I heard three explosions, and then we heard like groaning and grinding, and tower two started to come down.

Somewhere around the middle of the world trade center there was this orange and red flash coming out. Initially it was just one flash. Then this flash just kept popping all the way around the building and that building had started to explode. The popping sound, and with each popping sound it was initially an orange and then red flash came out of the building and then it would just go all around the building on both sides as far as could see. These popping sounds and the explosions were getting bigger, going both up and down and then all around the building.

I looked back. You see three explosions and then the whole thing coming down.
–FIREFIGHTER FRANK CAMPAGNA Interview Date: December 4, 2001
The next thing I know, we heard a little bit of a rumbling, and then white powder came from the first collapsed building. I thought it was an explosion initially. We got hit with the powder. We tried to run. We got hit with the powder. It took a few minutes to clear.
After that, I still thought it was an explosion. I thought it was some kind of thermal explosion where I’m either going to get burnt — and I had kind of ideas that it was going to be something like Hiroshima where all this heat was coming at me and we were going to get burnt — or if the heat didn’t burn me, I thought that all the parts coming out of this building, the windows, metal, all the things like that, that I might be severed in half.
–LIEUTENANT GEORGE J. DeSIMONE Interview Date: October 22, 2001
.. for some reason I thought that when I looked in the direction of the Trade Center before it came down, before No. 2 came down, that I saw low-level flashes. In my conversation with Lieutenant Evangelista, never mentioning this to him, he questioned me and asked me if I saw low-level flashes in front of the building, and I agreed with him because I thought — at that time I didn’t know what it was. I mean, it could have been as a result of the building collapsing, things exploding, but I saw a flash flash flash and then it looked like the building came down.
Q. Was that on the lower level of the building or up where the fire was?
A. No, the lower level of the building. You know like when they demolish a building, how when they blow up a building, when it falls down? That’s what I thought I saw. And I didn’t broach the topic to him, but he asked me. He said I don’t know if I’m crazy, but I just wanted to ask you because you were standing right next to me. He said did you see anything by the building? And I said what do you mean by see anything? He said did you see any flashes? I said, yes, well, I thought it was just me. He said no, I saw them, too.
–ASSISTANT COMMISSIONER STEPHEN GREGORY Interview Date: October 3, 2001
Luckily, TNRA was there to record this historic meeting.
Like 964 other professional architects and engineers Mr Utzon has signed the ae911truth.org petition demanding of Congress an independent investigation into the collapse of the 3 World Trade Center buildings in New York on September 11, 2001
Please circulate this video widely.
A big thanks to EVERYONE who helped make this happen (:
Richard Gage, AIA, is a San Francisco Bay Area architect and a member of the American Institute of Architects. He is the founding member of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth (ae911truth.org). He has been a practicing architect for over 20 years and has worked on most types of building construction, including numerous fire-proofed steel-framed buildings. Most recently he worked on the construction documents for a $400M mixed-use urban project with 1.2 million square feet of retail, parking structure, and 320,000 square feet of mid-rise office space - altogether about with 1,200 tons of steel framing.
AE911Truth.org provides an extensive resource of expert opinion on the structural failure of three WTC buildings on 11 September 2001.
During the interview we engage with all the key questions surrounding the collapse of WTC buildings 1, 2 & 7 - including a critique of the flawed reports produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) .
We also get into the subject of connections between NIST and nano-thermite which Gage and an international group of scientists believe were used in the demolition of these buildings.
This is an extremely important interview - I encourage our listeners to forward this to as many people as possible, particularly those who are new to the subject or adhere to the official theory, which maintains that the WTC towers were destroyed solely as a result of plane impacts and fires.]]>
